The San Francisco Giants are 2012 World Series Champions, winning it all for the second time in three years by sweeping the Detroit Tigers.
It was a wild playoff ride for the Giants, as the team had to come back from down 0-2 to the Reds in the NLDS and a 3-1 deficit in the NLCS versus the Cardinals just to make it to the World Series.
Here’s an MLB 12: The Show reenactment of the last pitch in Game 4 of the World Series mixed with the Fox play-by-play call from the actual game.
E3 is the biggest video game trade show of the year and is often used as a place to showcase the latest titles.
With the event being a few weeks away, sports gamers are anxiously waiting for new information on some of their favorite titles and getting a first look at new games as well.
So what can gamers expect to see at this year’s E3? In this episode of SGS, I’ll give you my E3 sports video game predictions and take a stab at what I think will be announced at the event.
A title update designed to fix a number of issues in MLB 12: The Show is now available for download.
Some of the notable changes include season and franchise games starting at their corrected scheduled times, fixing the right fielder throwing out runners at first issue and a fix to the hot and cold zones being flipped in pitcher’s view.
The complete list of changes included with the patch can be read here.
The MLB The Show series has recreated the real-life sport better than any other baseball video game in the marketplace today and Sony hopes to continue that trend with MLB 12: The Show.
With new ball physics, updated controls, presentation tweaks and a new Diamond Dynasty mode, Sony put themselves in a position to reign supreme on the field once again.
After giving MLB 12: The Show an extensive play-through, you’ll soon realize that it plays a lot like last year’s game with the new bells and whistles adding a bit to the overall experience.
Both titles are $59.99, with MLB 12: The Show being a Playstation 3 exclusive.
Users can play an entire game using the Playstation Move in MLB 12: The Show and Sony has released a new video along with info on how it works.
Hitting and pitching is done by swinging the Move like a bat and using a throwing motion with the wand as if you were a pitcher on the mound.
Baserunning and fielding is a bit different, as users guide baserunners like a base coach and time a button press to catch a ball in the field (the CPU controls the movement of position players).
Check out the details on the PS Move controls along with the new trailer here.
Diamond Dynasty is similar to Madden NFL 12’s “Madden Ultimate Team” mode, where you build a custom team by collecting cards representing real and cuztomized all stars. Users can also customize their team logo, uniforms and players, as well as develop attributes.
Check out the trailer for details and leave your thoughts in the comments!
The videos feature team and player ratings, uniforms, team introductions and gameplay footage.
Although there won’t be a demo available for MLB 12: The Show, select Best Buy stores will have playable versions of the game (which is where the OS videos were captured from).
MLB 12: The Show is expected to hit stores on March 6.
