I think Showtime looks pretty cool...

Joe Random the exact reason the NL wants to go to DH.

ShowTime looks good because there's an added difficulty to it. I'd almost prefer it not as a "cheat," but as a "mode" in itself. If throwing truly does seem that hard, it's almost better than things being automatic. I'm not saying we should get errors left and right, but much like a catch button it's visceral to have your attributes matter alongside your game skill.

There are going to be a few buffer spots in the YouTube video. Twitch made a few changes and it affected the way you download videos so I have to record it as it plays. Hopefully it doesn't get to bad.

I got nothing, black screen and no sound or video.. Guess I'll wait and watch the saved version after it is all done...

I can only listen to it, but this scout day thing sounds more involved than before.

You can use the twitch app and set to audio only. That's what I'm doing.

Take away the showtime camera and it looks exactly the same as previous years
 
# 13 Factzzz @ 02/04/16 05:24 PM
Same one hand follow through animation for right handed hitters.

Doesn't look natural.

Not nitpicking at all (really, not stating it as a detriment or anything, just stating an observation), but I find the menu/navigation screens somewhat uninviting. There aren't many games that grab me with the menus though, and baseball tends to be dead-last with that more often for whatever reason.

Just thinking about "spending time" in the menus when doing franchise or RttS, and as naturally as it blends with a baseball vibe, I guess I'm sort of meh on it.

As with the announcing, I think I'm too used to their font now too lol.

Dang. I was hoping for something else different. Same overlays, graphics look identical...camera angles same. It seems the directonal batting got tweaked. Unfortunately, not impressed at all.

Generated players still look bad, in terms of hair and equipment.

Still seeing handle bar moustache guys wearing one batting glove.

Its not like this is a final copy..
 
# 20 vidgames @ 02/04/16 05:39 PM
I am sure the lighting and graphics will get "tone up" but let's be real...not much improvement. You can only put so much paint over something that needs to be redone.
