Online enabled baseball games

I know there is a small audience of baseball fans at LCVG.

Which baseball game(s) are you planning to get? For which console??

 

AllStar Baseball 2005 and ESPN Baseball will be available on Xbox Live in March.

MVP Baseball will be online via PS2, along with the above mentioned pair. Allen mentioned another online title that will be out in June from the NHL Hitz/NFL Blitz maker.

 

I am planning to get ESPN Baseball for Xbox and could definitely see myself picking up another for play on the PS2.

I'm definitely gettting MVP this year. From the videos I've seen this game has made leaps and bounds in terms of gameplay, which is all I care about. I still haven't found a game that compares to All-Star Baseball on the N64. I might take a look at this years All-Star baseball but I'll probably wait until some user reviews. But I'm buying MVP the day it comes out. :)

I will probably go with ESPN(Xbox) because thats the way this forum seems to be leaning and look forward to playing you guys.

 

I've yet to see a baseball game that EA has done right.

My dad and I are going with ESPN most likely. No online in MVP for the Xbox is a big disappointment, but not surprising. Plus, we enjoyed the last 2 WSB games more than any of EA's Triple Play series, or last years MVP game.

Anyone know the reason why Barry Bonds won't be in ESPN Baseball?

He didn't sign with the MLBPA is the reason I think. I think he also might be the first player not to sign with them, but I'm not sure.

He wants to cash in on his HR record pursuit without having to share the endorsement revenue with the player's association. Not popular with the other players at all...

Barry Bonds is a great baseball player, but even a bigger asshole.

You hit the nail on the head. He thinks he's bigger than the game itself.

I wonder if cyber-Jason Giambi will be as small as the real one is this year? :twisted:

I've already ordered it Bruce. I'd be happy to meet up for some early March baseball. We can talk LCVG Fantasy bball too.

Holy Shit, those videos are great Bruce! The stadium and city models in that second video are fantastic. Finally it appears someone put in a true effort to have great models. I'm sick if the flat models and textures. I tired of the same generic city background in every town.

 

And the new game play elements sound good. Fielding from the player position and the analog baseball swing.

 

I gotta say though, I usually wait for the seasons baseball titles to all launch before choosing which I'll purchase. There is no one standard leader year to year IMO. This one will be hard to wait on though. :D Hopefully Acclaim's ambitions are fully realized!

I have really enjoyed All-Star the last few years on Gamecube, But plan on going with ESPN for X-Box this year, Simply because I think that there will be more people to play online and Sega is more experienced in developing good online sports games.

 

Of course the last Sega Baseball game I played was 2k1 for Dreamcast and that is in my opinion the single worst videogame I have ever played. But I recall last year's WSB getting great reviews.

 

I always like the idea of joining leagues, but since the days of Dreamcast, every league I have been a part of, has fallen apart around the halfway point or sooner.

 

If the ESPN game turns out to have good online gameplay, I will start a league that will have no more than 12 teams of dedicated gamers.

 

The idea would to be to play a non-ordered schedule. You would simply be given your schedule and have a deadline to complete the selected number of games. It would not matter what order you play them or how quickly or slowly you would finish your season as long as you make the deadline. I think this may be a lot more flexible for everyone.

Agreed. 2K2 was pretty good, though.

A word of warning Bryan, I have started a regimen of steroids so the games might be lopsided. :green:
