MLB 2K9 News Post



Here is just a random video from our Major League Baseball 2K9 beta. I'll try to get some of the hit variety in future clips, as I'm just playing around with the video software in this one.

# 2 SwinginAs12 @ 02/21/09 12:05 PM
Can we see a Randy Johnson vs Matt Holliday or Jason Giambi atbat?

With the Jays rating i'm surprised they put up 5 runs LOL

As I said in the other thread nice to see the directly behind the pitcher view as that's what used during Jays home games.

Remember when I said Ortiz's homer in that IGN video didn't bother me?


Well, that Markakis homer in this video bothered me.
 
# 5 SwinginAs12 @ 02/21/09 12:08 PM
Hahah why did it bother you?

Good to see that the arrow is more of an off or over the wall indicator now than an automatic home run. Do you think this means that hits will be dependent on contact and they won't just be canned home runs now? Because I don't think I saw 5 balls hit the wall last year, and now there's an abundance of them. And if this is the case, then I hope we will see a lot more balls hit off the wall in Fenway. (Even though I'm a Yankees fan, I would love to see some hits off the monster.)

Well, I'm not going to get too deep without it sounding like I'm just looking for bad things to talk about, but Markakis only hit four home runs in that vicinity last year, none of which cleared 400 feet. It was a runaway two-seamer well off the plate that he scorched off the end of the bat, to boot.

It just leads me to believe that this won't be a one time occurrence, even for players weaker than little Nicky.

Maybe its time for a change in Nick's world. Its called, weights, weights, weights. lol

@kGinGreen

Yeah roids seems are in this season. They're just trying to fit in with the croud.

I actually thought there was a missed frame as well, sort of like a delay. Well, it might have just been us 2 because others would have already mentioned this.

Man those bat sounds are horrible.

It takes away from the game experience IMO. They need to work on this next year.

We could possibly attribute it to the video capture. I'm sometimes witnessing 20 consecutive frames just not there. That's something that I just feel has to do more with the video than anything else.

I'll tell you what is very cool.
Active bullpens......that looks awesome!

Also I liked how the crowd went after the ball....looked perfect.

Steve...on the "errors" video....were you controlling Pie on that bobble?....
If so...were you still moving and that's why there was an error...or did was it simply a bobble?

Markakis' bobble also looked good. That was a good animation for the error.

Much better videos than the A's - M's vids for some reason.

...and yes...YUCK on those bat sounds......also..on the homer...it looked like an extend-a-bat for that one!

- you are going over the top now. never played a basketball game and seen someone dunk who never dunks? ever seen a WR burn a db who they'd never burn in real life in madden?

so now we are holding 2ksports to a higher standard than we do other sports video games? an almost unrealistic one at that?
