MLB The Show 16 review
Last year's The Show was born on third thinking it hit a triple and it's not like MLB The Show 16 feels substantially different, though it has cleaned its game up and graciously eased up a bit on the crazy, stat-buffing brand...   read

MLB The Show 16 is out in March, here's the first screens

Thank the baseball gods that baseball is back in a month and a half. I'm hooting and hollering like a mad man at these Warriors games, but basketball just takes too many nights off. I need several hours of warm deadening a night, every nigh...

 
MLB 15 The Show review
The Giants have won and lost back to back one-run ballgames to open the 2015 baseball season. They lost a starting pitcher and right fielder to the DL, scratched a first baseman and another starter with injury, called up a ro...   read

Game News Haikus: Sexy Final Fantasy, amiibogeddon, Bloodborne trick, and more

Nintendo took a big spot in last week's news, with the highs of the Nintendo Direct and the lows of the Wave 4 amiibo rollout. Does that give the company perfect balance, like a haiku? I'm not sure. In this series, we take a look at the st...

MLB 15 The Show's best improvement is revenge

Sony San Diego's MLB The Show series has a mode where players can live out fantasies of being a professional baseball player. In "Road to the Show" players can design their own avatars and take them on the long journey from the amateur draf...

I'm still playing MLB 15 The Show for our review. Instead of going to my PS3, uploading my Road to the Show shortstop to the Cloud, then importing it into my PS4, I stayed put (they're in different places) and made a new pitcher who's bree...

Where's our MLB 15 The Show review? (Royals suck edition)

PlayStation's baseball monopoly continues this year with the consistently good MLB 15 The Show (PS3, PS4, Vita). That does come with more caveats than ever this year. Online servers seem to be shutting down for the previous year's release ...

MLB 15 The Show gets bat-grain 10th anniversary edition

Ok, that's a pretty sweet steelbook case. And Canada getting the Blue Jays' Russel Martin on the case is a nice touch. The rest of this package is a little more troubling. First, the 10th anniversary is only offered for PS4. Then there's th...

MLB 14 on PS4 is fastest selling in franchise history

I might've dug into MLB 14 on PS4 a bit for its slow load times, but that's the only slow thing about it. According to the PlayStation Blog, MLB 14 on PS4, "exceeded the previous marks for most preorders, most day-one sales, and most week o...

 
Show 14 PS4
I was mostly satisfied with MLB 14 The Show's initial PS3 and Vita release. Hitting ahead of the PS4 version led to some (perhaps overdue) improvements, from the UI overhaul to PS3/PS4/Vita cross saves to a universal The Show...   read

Here's what MLB 14 The Show looks like on PS4

MLB 14 The Show has made some welcomed strides forward on PS3 and Vita, from three system cross save to universal profiles to save data that carries over year after year. But the PS3 version does show its age, so if you want crowds that do...

 
MLB 14 review!
I was ready for last year’s The Show to be its PS3 swansong, I was feeling it. It’s not that it wasn’t good. It was as good as it ever was. But there were signs of age. The same old horrifying fan models in ...   read

MLB: The Show: Quick Count, Player Lock make games faster

If you want to be able to breeze through games more quickly, MLB 14: The Show has two new options. Quick Count starts off every at bat in an advanced count (3-0, 1-2, etc.), partly based on the pitcher/batter matchup. Not a bad option if y...

 
MLB 14 on PS4

MLB 13 The Show to release March 5
