Re: MLB 2k12 - Q&A Thread

When playing online, which option is for a ranked game, "quick game" or "quick match"?

Re: MLB 2k12 - Q&A Thread

Separate control schemes for batting/defense/pitching? Check swinging is double swing?

Depending on your settings for the presentation and the pace of the game, I'd say anywhere between 30 and 45 minutes

They added more commentary about players (obviously) but the stat overlays are more immersive imo than in 2K11. Like for example, a guy will come up to the plate and he's been on a cold streak all month in a franchise. Kruk or Phillips will mention that in the 1st at bat. But if you get a couple hits in the game, they will sometimes mention that maybe your breaking that slump and starting to heat up. Plus all the inside edge overlays they have for info about your pitch location, quality strikes thrown, pitch selection are top notch.

Yes there are seperate control schemes for all three of those. And if you use total control hitting, check swing is the same as last year with the pulling the stick back quickly (except it actually functions correctly now)

Re: MLB 2k12 - Q&A Thread

This is the first baseball game I've bought in almost 4 years (I think The Show 08 was my last) and the last time I played a 2K baseball game was probably even longer. Was never a huge fan of the 2K baseball games and when I got rid of my PS3 and only had my 360, I just never gave then much consideration. So, it has been a while for me and I was really craving a baseball video game. Being a 360 owner, this was the only choice and I feared the worst but, after one day with the game, 2K has made huge improvements over the years I've been away from the series, I'm really impressed so far.

Since I've been away for so long some things are really different and I don't think the game does a great job of explaining the new hitting controls, fielding and pitching to noobs. Pitching I think I've gotten down, and this is the best pitching controls I've ever seen in a video game. Hitting and fielding are a different story.

So, I was long winded to get to this basic question, is there a more detailed manual somewhere online (or on the disc) for this game?

Thanks number 35!
those additions to presentation sound immersive.
i like it.


edit: another question guys.

do teams adjust lineups correctly according to starting pitcher?
i mean does Andrew Jones DH for the yanks against lefties AND righties? Or would it be Raul Ibanez vs righties?

thanks
