I know this game, very well. You wait and see the kind of career this guy has.

I want to see Rocco Baldelli on the cover. He's great and he's a Ray!

Not since January 8th, when the Red Sox signed him to a one year deal.

I think the best sort of cover art to do would be a picture of the entire world series winning team as opposed to one player. Although i dont see many people liking that idea.

I dont make them. I just google "Custom xxx Covers" and can usually find a site fairly easily.

I saw some screens of the new franchise system. Talk about going into detail. Arbitration, draft pick compensation, the whole ball of wax.

That's my only complaint with this series. The new franchise mode sounds awesome, but I hate simming games in a franchise and by there's no way I can play 300-400 games to get through a few seasons.

Many custom covers can be found now at the Operations Sports forums.

Re: MLB '09: The Show (PS3, PS2, PSP) - March 3rd

Yeah, I'll admit it. I sim maybe 2/3 of a season to get to the post-season and then the off-season.

I've played so many baseball games over the years that, at this point, the only thing that really sells me on a new baseball game is the depth and breadth of the team management. Of course, the gameplay itself has to be good in order for me to consider the team management a real achievement. The two really go hand-in-hand. If the gameplay sucks, I won't ever make it to the second season of a franchise mode and if the team management features suck, I probably won't make it through the second season since there's nothing really encouraging me to play on. Something new will come out or I'll get back into Rock Band and I'll get distracted and never really go back. I have a very fleeting attention span these days for games. I love me some great video game baseball, but part of me just longs for a remake of Baseball Stars.

Re: MLB '09: The Show (PS3, PS2, PSP) - March 3rd

was more impressed with the demo of this than I was KZ2

didn't think they could make this game look any nicer, yet they did
and we all know about how good the gameplay is
