First inning bosses are gonna be Mike Piazza, Kenny Lofton and Fernando Valenzuela

Server issues that I dont expect to be better for awhile. No way they were prepared enough for the xbox influx.

Gave up 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th to lose Opening Day at Fenway. Brutal. Especially since it was due to a fielding brain fart. First time I've played The Show in 10 years probably. It's pretty challenging.

Players look great and the game play feels really good. The field itself though is crap. It looks the same as it did 10 years ago. The stadium detail and fans otherwise are really good though. Just odd they didn't care more there. The field/grass on Madden 21 on Xbox Series X looked great. I'm playing The Show on the PS5 btw.

I feel like a lot of games stopped caring about details when they started caring more about in game purchases and catering to online players.

This plus it’s the first of the new generation, on a yearly iteration it’s probably hard to get the most out of it right away.

Played an exhibition as the Dodgers vs the rays while it finished downloading, plays great so far. Can’t wait to dive in tonight.

The true test will be the mechanics of running to a spot for a liner in the gap or running back on the ball. I don’t know how many games I’ve lost because the guy gets to the spot about when the ball gets there, and when I let go of the stick he turns and stops instead of completing the action of trying to catch the ball. They e needed to fix this for at least 7 years.

Its fun. Its a card collecting mode and once you have the cards you can use them on your team. I never put real money into it. SDS is usually generous with their ingame currency. You do have to grind a bit but nothing overwhelming.

Menu and UI wise, this game is as buggy at launch as CyberPunk which says a lot. Pretty terrible experience so far.

Yup. They've been pretty good on that front the last few years but sh** the bed this year.
