    A new developer blog went up today for Out of the Park Baseball 16 that goes over Manager-Only Mode which is one of the new features for the game. It's one of three new ways to play the game along with GM-Only and GM+Manager. OOTP 16...adds a Manager-Only mode that lets you focus on whipping the players into shape while your GM deals with prima donnas who demand contract extensions, trades a hapless overachiever in his contract year for a couple prospects, and handles all those other things...
  • RBI Baseball Returning for Another Year

    RBI Baseball 14 was inarguably the worst sports game released last year. Essentially a mobile game ported to the PS4 and Xbox One it was overpriced, lacked necessary features like stat tracking, and even post-release support promises like the addition of online play were never fulfilled. The game was greeted by horrific reviews and shunned by consumers. Today MLBAM announced RBI Baseball 15. Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago Cubs is being called the "cover athlete" for the digital-only game wh...

    Despite its popularity among a hardcore group of fans the management game Out of the Park Baseball - which has been a mainstay on PC and in recent years expanded to mobile - has struggled to break out sales wise beyond that dedicated and passionate group. One reason for that could be chalked up to a lack of Major League Baseball licensing. While real player names could be used (similar to how fantasy baseball services can utilize them without a cost involved) there was no MLB branding, te...
  • Three New Articles on Sporting News

    I'll be contributing articles regularly going forward to Sporting News and the first three went up this week. The idea is to write there for a more general audience - many of the themes and practically all of the pertinent information having already being covered here but presentedĀ in a different manner - and tie it in more with relevancy in the sports world. One article is on Super Mega Baseball which beat the odds not just in becoming a fantastic game but in even getting off the ground...
  • Trying Share Play with Super Mega Baseball

    The introduction of Share Play on PlayStation 4 made it possible for games without any online component to be played through hosted connections. Assuming the individual's speeds (primarily the upload) is fast enough Share Play offers the ability to not just play with or against a friend but also pass them the controller to play on their own. In some cases the result has even proven to be better than the actual online service for the game. Super Mega Baseball does not offer online play and...
  • Super Mega Baseball is the Late Season Sports Gaming Hero

    Super Mega Baseball enters the marketplace without the support of a major publisher and with it the normal marketing push and fanfare those games get. It lacks the licensing, rich feature sets, and revenue-driven modes that have become the norm. The sports genre's alternatives, games that acted as bridges to the highly-detailed and increasingly complicated sim offerings, have gone practically extinct in recent years. Despite all that Super Mega has every right to be considered a legitimat...

    The hope going into the release of Super Mega Baseball, due out tomorrow on PS4 and PS3, was that it could at least partially fill the huge void in sports gaming left by the practical extinction of the non-traditional licensed sim or "arcade" games of old. Thankfully Super Mega has come through in that regard. The game is very fun and really well designed. It may have the look of an "arcade" game but it's grounded enough in realism that it should appeal to a wide audience. I'll be posting...
