Jon Robinson has posted his thoughts of MLB '10: The Show, after 25 games.

Quote:
"Why is Aaron Rowand crawling under the Giants bench? I'm in the middle of playing "MLB 10: The Show" when I need to put the controller down for a few minutes in between pitches. That's when I notice something crazy happening in the San Francisco dugout. Rowand actually worms his way under the legs of a few players, then appears to be messing with the feet of rookie Buster Posey. I can't quite figure out what is happening at first until Posey bursts out of his seat and starts hopping up and down like a madman. That's when it hits me -- Rowand gave Posey a hot foot. Everyone on the bench is falling over in laughter and Posey has to be separated from Rowand who just successfully pulled off one of baseball's classic pranks.

Yes, I know this has nothing to do with gameplay, but the scene is just an example of the depth Sony has gone to create what I think is the most complete, most compelling baseball video game I've ever experienced. In three days, I've already played 25 games of my Giants franchise, and every game I'm still seeing new animations play out, hearing the announcers provide details I haven't yet heard, and experiencing some of the most epic games I can remember on the virtual diamond.

And since I've been played the advanced copy probably more than anyone outside of Sony, I wanted to provide some quick details of what I think Sony got right, and what they did wrong in this year's game."

Nice read. Can't wait to see the "hot foot" in the game.

Is it even physically possible to have 25 games played already?

25 games played already because of an advanced copy sent to ESPN.

yeah he got it early. I'm sure ESPN and The Show wanted him playing a certain number before writing the article. The more games the better the article, thus better advertising.

Two thoughts....

Man...I can't wait to get my copy.
And man...I sure wish Madden had "THIS" much detail.

Michael Bourn of the Astros is one of the most dominant polygonal players to ever take the diamond. In a three game series to open the season, I only got him out one time, and even that play was close. It's a combination of his speed and the line drives he seems to send into the gap and up that hill in Houston that leaves me speechless. But maybe the best play he made all series was on defense. Fred Lewis hit a ball into right field that Hunter Pence was chasing toward the wall. Pence jumped and hurt himself by flying into the fence, so I was thinking triple all the way. But here comes Bourn. He hustled over, grabbed the ball and threw Lewis out at third. Amazing.

NICE!
