A nice glimpse of the new RttS front end/options screen ahead of the Deep Dive on Thursday. But definitely some minor spoilers if you keep watching.

Okay, so RTTS got tons of love this year and I can't wait to play it!

Reminds me of games like Mass Effect with the choices.

Nice...

This is dope, they really put there resources into this mode.

OS should put the IGN video with this Video, because it is a continuation of that video.

I already put it up a few minutes before Sip_16 put this one up.

i have not played RTTS......EVER. Just isn't my cup of tea. Been playing since this series first started.

I think this is the year I give it a go. Looks very interesting and the options seem endless.

Good use of their IP that SCEA already had permission to use (player card screen, if you never saw it )

Or maybe it's Fair Use in this case - I dunno the details.

Should have had Morgan Freeman narrate.

Or, Frank Caliendo as Morgan Freeman, but this dudes voice is pretty damn good.

This is awesome , " Choices 101 " in the house, RTTS is going to be better than ever !!!
 
# 12 WhiteBunny @ 03/14/17 01:49 PM
Nice stuff. It can be the foundation year to add a whole new dimension in RTTS. It seems solid and in the future probably we'll get new choice/consequence to path your career ( hoping for some stuff with your teammates ).

This is all dope! If you opt to go with a new position, does your previous position become a/one of your secondary positions?
 
# 14 CoiaNY @ 03/14/17 02:28 PM
Interesting that they're going with a documentary style approach. Looking forward to seeing how this plays out through the major leagues

Not sure about this myself and I am a RTTS player.


I find myself wondering if no matter what fielding position you pick if you will be always, eventually be asked to play a new position because that is now "the storyline".

I think it was the actual blog that Sony released that it says it's only supposed to be occasional. And also, it'll probably be more likely to happen say, for instance you're a center fielder with the Angels I imagine or at least along those lines

I hope so. I already have awful luck with being able to choose my team (obviously the Cardinals) because they always trade me before I get to the majors.


But based on the Cardinals lineup in 2019 in my RTTS game they trade everyone. The game does the one thing the Cardinals rarely do, gutted the team like they were in rebuild mode. Molina, Wainwright, Holliday, Carpenter, Lynn, and many others were all traded in 2016 and 2017 in the game.


Of course it looks like it is not just the Cardinals. In 2019 I am playing on the Rangers batting 3rd and Anthony Rizzo is batting forth (like the cubs would ever trade him). On the plus side we are number 1 and 2 in both HR, RBI and I believe Avg. (we also have the #3 guy in HR and RBI). We make up for our pitching staff that is ranked 28th in the league.

I never thought my hype for this game would be so tied to RTTS, and yet here I am jonesin to start my career. Everything about this looks fantastic!

Ive honestly never gotten more than 3 years in to any RTTS ever so I cant say Ive seen that happen personally, and I've played the game since 06, lol. I think this year might be different and I'll finish one for once. But yeah, trade logic has been a little off at times. Only issue I've personally had was that the AI would have a full bullpen and carry a 1 man bench, lol.

Interesting that he said it was a foundation year for RTTS and that DD is essentially done and where they want it to be. So presumably that would suggest next year they will be putting less into DD and more into developing RTTS even further? (and maybe even time to start thinking about a foundation year for Franchise?)

Like I said in the other thread, RTTS has so much potential, so much more than the individual player careers in other games as baseball is so much more of an individuals sport. Can't wait to see what the long term plans are, as this looks like a nice start.

On a completely unrelated side note, do American sports teams really have sofas in their dressings rooms like on the main screen in this? That's pretty flashy, here in England you're lucky if the shower has hot water!
