Re: MLB The Show 21

Agree Fletcher about the commentary. It's definitely a sore spot in an otherwise great game. It's a shame they can't do little updates throughout the season to keep the commentary fresh. I will say that the franchise commentary updates are pretty cool. They'll talk about a pitcher's last start, whet...

Re: MLB The Show 21

Maybe it's because I didn't play a lot of MLB 20, but this game just feels so fresh. The game play is incredible and love the ups and downs of the season. I came off getting swept against the Reds. I had such a difficult time just getting a run across the plate. I think I may have gotten shut out tw...

Re: MLB The Show 21

I lowered home run power by one. Still seeing on average 2 per game but it feels better than playing on default. Also, lowered the outfielder arm strength by one but I do that every year. I just got swept by the Reds and didn't score in the last two games. Had my chances but either was popping the b...

Re: MLB The Show 21

Cool little feature not sure if many of you know about. When you're up to bat and have runners on, you can click the right stick in before the pitch and get a look at the fielders arm strength, accuracy, etc. Helps when you want to go from first to third or second to home.

Re: MLB The Show 21

Speaking of the game length, what are people doing to get reasonable time per game and not lose the charm of this game? Ideally I'd like games to take 30 minutes. Any advice? Also batting view, I left the default fish eye but I am not picking up the pitches well. Try switching to HYBRID for present...

Re: MLB The Show 21

I had a pitcher take a grounder off his ankle which led to a mound discussion and him waiving away the trainer. Just good stuff. That said, I’ve yet to have any of players get injured, but I’m sure it’s coming. Had an injury a few days with Tommy Edman diving for a ball well out of reach. Good news...

If you get a chance, play this game with some nice headphones for at least a game. It sounds so nice with the PS5 Headphones.

Re: MLB The Show 21

I'm all about quick counts...I'm not patient enough to actually take 4 balls to walk...I'd have literally zero walks if I didn't. Plus it just takes so long to play without them. It's a great option. Exactly. And I find myself walking more batters with quick counts on because you can start in a 2-0...

Re: MLB The Show 21

Played all weekend. I'm 5-5 in my Cardinals franchise. Every game has been different and exciting. Some blow outs and some 1-0, 2-0, 4-3, etc games. Started out on Veteran for hitting but quickly moved to All-Star which has been challenging but fair. I knew I had to make the switch when O'Neil, Carp...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

Anyone that has tried both, which controller are you digging the most? X or PS5? Both are great, but I'd give the edge to the PS5. I like the feel slightly better and the haptic feedback is awesome. Thanx. I know this would vary for everyone, but is the size difference noticeable in your hands duri...

Re: OT: PC Gaming Hardware Thread

Extremely happy with my Vengence Corsair. Can't believe how quiet it is, even with games like Red Dead 2. Gaming on this thing has been pure bliss, and I'll go as far to say that I enjoy gaming on the PC better than my PS5. Visually, games looks quite a bit better and the response time is excellent.

Re: MLB The Show 21

Went ahead and upgraded my purchase to the digital deluxe so I could start my franchise last night on day one. Had a $75 gift card from my birthday so the extra $15 was not a big deal. As Scott said, the frame rates are buttery smooth now. No more glaring slow downs which is very nice. Visually, it ...

Re: RBI Baseball 20

I think the game has improved, but I'm still surprised you guys are giving it a favorable rating. The fielding is atrocious. Half the time the ball doesn't even make it in to the glove. There seems to be many missing animations. With batting, the ball will sometimes look like it's going to the oppos...

Re: XBOX Game Pass (Ultimate)

I found Dirt 5 to be enjoyable and not as lifeless as some have stated. Mind you, I'm happy I didn't have to pay for it. I'll probably come back to it at some point. To me, it's just mindless racing with some impressive visuals.

Seems extremely slow to me from the pitching to the hitting....but it is fantastic graphics

Am I even allowed to say that??
The graphics are scaled down. I can’t imagine this is what it’ll look like on the PS5 and Series X. It looks last gen to me.

Re: Laptop suggestions

I was going to recommend MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with new M1 chip. Kick-ass machines. But you would need to buy 13-inch screens to fit in the budget with the Pro. A 16-inch MBP is $2,400. A 13-inch MacBook Air with the M1 chip is super light while boasting an aluminum chassis, not plastic. Why d...

Laptop suggestions

Looking for a 15.6” to 17” laptop for around $1200 or less while I’m stuck in bed dealing with a problematic back (couple slipped discs). Either going the epidural steroid route or most likely surgery. I need it for work pretty much strictly to log in to the server. Something not too heavy.

Thanks.
