Ramone posted this MLB The Show 16 image (work in progress) on Twitter, so I did the best I could with it, comparing the artificial rocks behind the left-center field fence at Angel Stadium, in MLB 15 The Show.

My last two NBA 2K16 pieces have been a bit on the heavy side, both in terms of tackling multiple issues and asking many community questions. This week, Iím going with a more brisk topic and asking one simple question:

What two-man interactions make you rage out?

I have a larger point about two-man interactions Iíll hopefully cement and talk about in a future article, but for now I want to ask about this one specific issue. After the jump, Iíll highlight three two-man interactions that chap my butt, and I hope you all will throw some out there as well in the comments below.

Letís do it.

Another Need For Speed game update is scheduled to be released today, check out some of the details below and read the official blog here.

Snapshot Pro - A mode which will allow you to create some stunning photos of your favorite car with color filters, lens effects and more. (Read more about it here)

Wrap Sharing - Wrap Sharing has been one of the most requested features to date and because of this weíre adding a new option within the Paint and Wrap section that will allow you to browse and download wraps shared by other players. If youíre a wrap creator then simply mark your creation as shareable and itíll show up for everyone else.

Customization Items - Customization continues to be something we see you talking about and requesting more of, which is why weíll be following in the footsteps of the Legends update and adding another 100+ new customization items in this update.

In total, eleven new cars will be getting new parts:
  • Ford Focus RS
  • Chevrolet Camaro Z28
  • BMW M3 E92
  • Ford Mustang Boss 302
  • Ford Mustang Foxbody
  • Ford Mustang GT
  • Mazda MX5 (2015)
  • NISSAN 180sx Type X
  • NISSAN Silvia Spec-R
  • SUBARU BRZ Premium
  • SUBARU Impreza WRX
Multiplayer - Want to test your skills against other people? We've added a ďCompetitiveĒ option at the front menu which will see you placed in a game with other players who are also looking to race competitively. Or, select ďAlldriveĒ and you can experience Need for Speed as it is now.

License Plates - Youíll now have the option to customize the license plate on your car, giving you even more options to personalize your ride.

Youíll be able to choose from a selection of backgrounds from past NFS games including; Redview, Fairhaven, Palmont City, Rockport, Olympic City, Bayview and Tri City Bay. Alongside the backgrounds youíll also be able to apply a number of frames to complete the look.

Gas Stations - Players of previous NFS games will be familiar with the gas stations and their ability to repair your car. Something we heard directly from you, the NFS community, is that you wanted this functionality brought back. You missed the option of having your car look new again, instead of having to wear the scars of racing until you ventured back to the garage.

As such, all gas stations in Ventura Bay will now repair your car, free of charge. Simply drive your car through the station and itíll be looking as good as new. And to help you out further, weíll be adding all gas stations as points of interest on the map.

Full Patch Notes
  • New Feature: Wrap Sharing
  • New Feature: Snapshot Pro Mode
  • A new "Splash" screen which gives players information on what is included in the new updates from the Living Game
  • A new Snapshot overview screen in the Need for Speed Network menu so you can find out more about your snapshots
  • Improvements to Kickbacks and likes on snapshots
  • 100+ new customization items for a variety of cars
  • License plates are back. Apply around 10 different license plates to your car for more in depth customization
  • We've made more improvements and bug fixes to multiplayer. You can now play with like-minded people, if you want to play competitive then you can now select this option when matchmaking and join a world with people who also want to play competitive.
  • 3 new Trophies and achievements
  • Drive through a Gas Station and repair your car on the fly.
  • A variety of tweaks and improvements including AI, player feedback, Gameplay and World
  • Fixed a couple of bugs for Eddie's challenge
  • Multiple stability fixes
