Diamond Dynasty has been a huge hit on Operation Sports this year, and I'm one of the many who has been sucked in by the mode. It's a more streamlined approach to the fantasy team concept, and taking the more straightforward approach has worked in Sony's favor. However, improvements can always be made to any mode, and so that's what we'll take a look at in this video.

Earlier this year, Metalhead Software announced Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings was going to release sometime in the summer for Xbox One and PC, along with free DLC and updates for the PlayStation versions of Super Mega Baseball. Check out the trailer here.

Today they announced the release dates for the Xbox One (August 14) and PC (August 21) versions, costing $19.99. Pre-order on Xbox One will begin on August 7th and include a 15% discount. The Xbox One version will also have a trial mode, for those of you wanting to try it out before purchasing.

For PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 users of Super Mega Baseball, expect updates and free DLC in September.

Below are some of the features for Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings.
  • Realistic Simulation and Physics: Don’t be fooled by the light-hearted/comical presentation; the fundamentals of baseball are well represented and if someone isn’t familiar with the rules, they will be after playing Super Mega Baseball.
  • Groundbreaking Difficulty System: Super Mega Baseball boasts an innovative difficulty control scheme called the Ego system. The Ego system offers a fine-grained control of difficulty on a per- user basis, which has been widely praised for leveling the playing field in cooperative and competitive modes. This system will push seasoned gamers to their limits while simultaneously providing a gentle introduction for beginners.
  • Up-to Four Player Local Co-op Play: In addition to solo play, players can try their hand at head- to-head, 2v1, 2v2 and co-op against the CPU. In co-op mode, teammates alternate batting/running each time at-bat, and alternate pitching/fielding each inning, meaning ballplayers need to be on their toes every play. To even games, players can use the Ego system to set up a competitive game between friends of any skill level.
  • Ultra Responsive and Blazing Fast Gameplay: Controls are easy to learn, but players will need to master jumping, diving, wall-catches, power-swings and cut-off plays to properly dominate friends. Short load times and a streamlined interface means most of the time is spent in the action, with nine-inning games taking around 20 minutes to play.
  • Leveling System: Players tally up Starpoints for hits, strikeouts and catches during each game and Level Up once they collect enough points. Players can hire staff to train and coach their squad, improving skill attributes such as Power and Speed. Use that jacked up team to win at higher difficulties (and post higher leaderboard scores than friends)!
  • Full batting and pitching statistics: Comprehensive baseball statistics that ballplayers can use to show off their MVP-quality skills
  • Player Customization: Customize the look and names of a team’s players to create a ragtag crew of family and friends. Make as many aesthetic adjustments as you can imagine!
The team also released their first blog on the making of Super Mega Baseball.

EA has just unveiled a new NHL 16 EASHL trailer which looks at the revamped mode from the perspective of fans of the series, who they claim helped shape this year's mode.

In the video, NHL 16 producer Sean Ramjagsingh said, "It was an opportunity for us to reimagine EA Sports Hockey League. Involving fans early was really important."

The video shows various clips of EASHL gameplay but also has a few interesting stories of the players play time with the game. Overall, the video has a very "this game is much better this year" tone to it.

Check out the video above for some player anecdotes of their playtime and some gameplay footage.

What do you all think?

With Rory McIlroy PGA Tour shipping with a limited number of courses, the game's case in reviews wasn't helped by its shallow mode offerings.

With at least two new courses in the DLC being known, it certainly appears EA is committed to at least some post-release support of the game.

If you had the choice, would you choose to have more licensed Golfers, courses, or additional features added into Rory? Vote in our poll and leave a comment below on which you prefer most!
