MLB 2K10 News Post

2K Sports has posted another Major League Baseball 2K10 Developer Insight. This is part II detailing My Player mode.

Quote:
"You will see two very cool things that happen right away once you are in the Majors: Key Games and Clutch Moments. If you are simming on the Schedule, we will drop you into the important games and the clutch moments that you are involved in. This way, you can play through your full 15 year career without having to feel like you might miss any of the vital events of your player’s career in simmed games. As an added bonus, skill points earned in Key Games and Clutch Moments will be worth more than skill points earned in regular games."

Just awesome.

Aside from my gripe bout team goals, I have no issues. In fact, I really love some of the touches they have for My Player. I REALLY like the key moments sim options and the ability to have say-so in your team's FA decisions and picking your lineup spot once you have enough status.

This sounds like it should be a very fun mode!

I like the idea of changing sliders and cpu trades in "My Player" mode. I also like being able to change what spot you hit in once you get to a certain level.

Asking for a trade and being able to tell the GM who you want on your team is also pretty bad ***.

Great stuff 2k. Now, lets hope it all plays well without any major glitches. Even if there are some (which I know will happen) lets hope they can address them. This is the first year they are doing this but, it really looks like they're on the right track.

Definitely. This obviously isn't some tossed in mode or a cheap copycat. It appears to be a very full-featured mode with a lot to offer. I look forward to trying it out.

Is it a maximum of 15 years in a career? That's kinda weak. Especially if you start at age 18. You'll have to retire at 33. Hopefully that's not the case.

They stated 15 years in chases interview with the developers I believe. Kind of a bummer, but could be worse I guess.

Player Creation
It turns out that I'm far too old to be a rookie in baseball. My Player's birthday doesn't go below 1982. Looks like I'm going to be a 28-year-old.

Wow sounds great. I hope this game delivers on the gameplay front.
 
# 10 AlphaTrojan @ 02/19/10 04:52 PM
Already pre-ordered, can't wait till Tuesday to play the demo. My player looks to be an awesome mode, maybe even better than NBA 2k10.
 
# 11 Wavebird99 @ 02/19/10 04:56 PM
I was so hoping they did a mode like this for 2k10

Looks awesome actually. I really hope it plays well.
 
# 12 TeixeiraFanatic @ 02/19/10 05:33 PM
That sucks then. If you're a hitter and want to break the HR record, you'd have to average 50+ HR to do so. And you'd have to average 200 hits a year to reach 3000. Oh well still looks amazing!

A few other things worth mentioning; full gameplay sliders are available within the mode, you can turn CPU trading on/off in the mode, along with getting trade and injury notifications for your organization. You can make and play in the Futures Game with your player when you are in the Minors and you can also make and play in the All Star Game and Home Run Derby once you are in the Majors.
All of this made me happy.

Don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but it says on 2K site:

"NEXT MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL 2K10 DEVELOPER INSIGHT: Fielding by Jonathan Rivera - Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010"
 
# 15 WarDawg58 @ 02/20/10 02:49 PM
Awesome, the more info the better. Everything i have seen and read so far seems really positive.
 
# 16 CybrSlydr @ 02/20/10 06:16 PM
Maybe the max years in the MLB can be modded by the community.

Hope so... 15 years just isn't long enough.

So you're saying that you'd have to consistently be one of the best players of all-time to break an all-time record? How disappointing.

To some extent, you're right. A 20 year career would make infinitely more sense. But I'm just pointing out that it SHOULDN'T be that easy to break a record that will possibly hold for decades once A-Rod is out of the game.

Not the average hall-of-famer's career though, which is supposedly the primary goal in this mode. So in that sense, the "average" career doesn't matter as the point of the mode is to be more than that.

Still, while I think 15 years is indeed too short, it's important to remember this is the is the first year of the mode and it seems to be quite deep overall. The user seems to get a good deal of options both on and off the field here.

I'd rather have 15 years of a great experience than 25 years of a poor one.

The homerun King(true)...never hit 50 homeruns in one season...heck...he hit 45 in a season only once!......played 23 years and his 162 game average was 37 homers.
