ESPN the Magazine has posted an article they've entitled, You're Never Too Old For MLB 08, where they talk to our very own jim416 (Stewart). Keep on gaming brother!

Quote:
ESPN: "When did you first get into playing video games?"

Stewart: "I remember when Atari and the Odyssey first came out and me and my buddies would play those dumb little Pong-like baseball games. And every year, when the new games came out, we'd play them, but it was nothing more than passing the time. The games back then always had something missing. But when Sony came out with MLB 07: The Show, that's the one I thought dramatically changed the face of baseball gaming. And with MLB 08, the jump was night and day. That's the game that made me finally buy an LCD TV."

Stewart, I'm not going to lie. That is the best gamer interview I have read in a while, in regards to the responses you gave.

Way to stand up for the simulation gamer!

In total agreement. I cant think of a better person to give us a voice on here either.

Great job Jim!

Someone needs to give the guy a blue name because he just did more for OS than 99% of this community.

Indeed. Stewart, you're all setup as a "Supporter" at OS.

You certainly deserve it Jim. You can be a grumpy old man(lol...) but, jokes aside, we certainly appreciate all you do for your fellow baseball junkies. Great work and keep it up!

I'm sure your neighbors are very grateful...lol.

Who knew we had a celebrity among us!!!!

Congrats Jim - and AMEN to this paragraph:

Quote:
I understand how difficult it is to program a baseball game, so I'm not looking for nirvana, but there are some animations that didn't quite fit when it came to throwing the ball. I'd say the fielding animations, some kind of weather progression and a night-day progression would be great additions, but the game doesn't want for much. That's going to be my Christmas, when they release MLB 09. Forget December 25, I'm looking forward to late February/early March when they release the game.
