Attention baseball fans: Sony ruins season with predictions

You know how people like to run Madden games to see who will win the Super Bowl? Well, Sony has gone one step further and decided to send me an e-mail predicting how the entire 2007 MLB season will pan out via their latest game MLB 07 The Show. Check out what the future will be and see if you disagree (there's gotta be some sports fans here, you can't all be nerds, can you?).

KEY STATS
Barry Bonds will not break the homerun record in 2007; coming up two shy
Milwaukee wins Central - 86 wins and 76 losses
Padres win the West - 102 wins vs. 60 loses
Phillies win the East - 88 wins and 74 losses
Mets will take the Wild Card - 87 wins and 75 loses
Angels win the West - 98 wins and 64 losses
Indians win the Central - 85 wins and 77 losses
Yankees win the East - 103 wins and 59 losses
Red Sox take the wild card - 91 wins and 71 losses

More dream crushing after the jump.

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

"Available: 31 August - This game will unlock in approximately 2 hours" HOLY SHIET! [youtube]https://youtu.be/9jK-NcRmVcw[/youtube]

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.

I've been thinking of starting up a criticism-minded "game of the month" type podcast. Would anyone be interested in something like that? If you'd wanna be part of it, let me know, I'm generating ideas and looking for contributors
