It's true, Josh Hamilton is coming back to Texas.

When Hamilton's move is made official in MLB 15 The Show, he will bolster and already pretty solid Rangers' lineup, with his 81 overall rating being a great fit in the middle of the batting order.

While Hamilton's exact on-field return in the real MLB is up in the air a bit, his return to the diamond in The Show as a Ranger can be had very soon. Hamilton should fit very nicely somewhere in the Rangers' lineup, from third to fifth in the order possibly.

This move doesn't make Texas a playoff contender, they still have a big problem with the pitching staff and injuries, but it'll certainly add some excitement back into the season for Rangers' fans.

What do you think? Where would you put Hamilton on your Ranger's lineup?

In March, Out of the Park developments delivered another solid management sim with OOTP 16. The minor changes were enough to solidify the whole package, making it the best looking and best playing version of the series to date. But, what about OOTP’s smaller portable companion, the former iOOTP? How does MLB Manager 2015 fair this season?

DiRT Rally is available now through the Steam Early Access Program. You can purchase it now through May 4th and get 10% off at $31.49. Check out the trailer here and a bunch of screenshots here. DiRT Rally will be exclusive to PC users.

More details can be seen at the official blog, as well as the full press release below.

Welcome to DiRT Rally - a new world of DiRT. A pure expression of rally, the pinnacle of off-road motor racing and it begins now, in Early Access, with regular free updates including new locations, new game modes and new vehicles.

DiRT Rally captures the essence of what makes rally unique – that sense of trying to remain in control of your emotions, as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time. It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and it’s the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.

Every stage will test you differently, as you feel out grip across varying surfaces and adapt your style to a range of different weather types. As the car suffers attrition you’ll need to account for mechanical damage whilst your dedicated rally team tries to keep you competitive with time-limited repairs between stages. As stages string together, each rally becomes a marathon-like test of concentration and skill, as you trust in your co-driver and your own ability to react and adapt, in order to stay competitive and chase that ever-elusive perfect run.
  • DiRT RALLY AND THE COMMUNITY: The community is DiRT Rally’s co-driver and their feedback will help shape the evolution of the experience. For players joining DiRT Rally in Early Access and the road ahead, the team want their feedback. They’ll be helping to test theories and providing vital data that will help to refine DiRT Rally.
  • EXPERIENCE 3 MASSIVE NEW REAL-WORLD RALLY LOCATIONS: From the start of Early Access, DiRT Rally offers three massive environments and 36 challenging stages, with more to follow. Drive them during the day - in dry, overcast, sunny, misty, wet, rainy and snowy conditions - and then take them on at night for a very different, intense experience that will challenge the elite.
  • Powys, Wales - Muddy, wet gravel stages and forest runs often in the rain during the day and at night.
  • Monte Carlo, Monaco – Tight, twisting, dangerous roads covered with snow and ice that wind through the Alps. Snow and mist affect visibility during the day and at night.
  • Argolis, Greece – Sweeping dusty gravel stages that take their toll on even the strongest rally cars in the intense heat of the Mediterranean in the bright daylight or at night.
  • 14 CARS OVER 6 NEW AND CLASSIC CLASSES TO DRIVE NOW: Rally is about having the right car and DiRT Rally will have all of the right cars. At the start of Early Access, DiRT Rally delivers 14 cars and will be adding more cars over more classes in the future.
  • NEW DRIVING MODEL: The physical simulation for DIRT Rally has been completely rebuilt to adequately capture how it feels to race across changing surfaces, and loose surfaces collect under the wheels during lateral sliding, creating a completely new feel to sliding around corners.
  • RALLY CHAMPIONSHIPS, RALLY ASYNC & CUSTOM RALLY EVENTS: Take on a single stage and learn the calls in Custom Rally events, compete against increasingly skilled opposition in Rally Seasons or prove yourself against the entire community of players in Rally Async challenges.
  • TEAM MANAGEMENT: Hire up to four engineering staff to work on your vehicle between stages. Drill down and hire them based on their contract length, wage demands, and on the insight they can offer over upgrades to the vehicles you own. Keep renewing an engineer’s contract and you’ll be able to give them perks that will help upgrade specific vehicles faster.
  • UPGRADES: As you drive a vehicle in events your engineers will become more familiar with it and will research upgrades that will unlock the full potential of the car. DiRT Rally’s comprehensive upgrade system makes meaningful improvements to the car’s handling and performance to stay competitive
  • TUNING: Delivering the most comprehensive tuning system ever in a DiRT game, DiRT Rally enables players to tune their cars based on weather conditions, car condition and more to ensure they can refine their setup and get the car feeling right for their driving style.
  • DAMAGE & REPAIRS: Off-road racing is tough and unforgiving; competing causes vehicles to suffer wear and tear as replicated by DiRT Rally’s comprehensive mechanical damage system. Thankfully, damage can be repaired by hiring eEngineers to work in the team’s Service Area between stages. Much as in the Colin McRae Rally games, there’s a finite amount of time to repair cars between rally stages.
  • PHYSICS-BASED ASSISTS: Being fast is about skill, not raw speed. Whilst DiRT Rally allows players to experience cars in their purest form it also offers a selection of real world assists, similar to those seen in race and road vehicles. Traction Control works to minimise wheel spin, ABS increases your braking ability by preventing the wheels from locking up and Stability Control keeps your car from over rotating in the corners.

TeamVVV has posted another gameplay video from Project CARS. This one features a couple of laps around Nürburgring from the helmet cam view.

Quote:
Always a challenge to the car and driver, not my best circuit but here's a two lap race and you'll see how I improve as the race goes on. Visually it runs well, note the subtle weather change towards the end. Played with the controller on 'mode 2' handling wise its initially tricky but intuitive, this car having good grip and lots of power. TCS is on but it won't save you, so being gentle on the power is always the best policy.

The PC exclusive Freestyle2: Street Basketball classifies itself as an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online), and it captures that feeling pretty well. It utilizes the "free-to-play" model, which serves it well since its simplistic gameplay and art style are sure to turn some people away from the get go.
