Didn't they really neuter the message on that game too? Originally it was gonna be all kinds of right wing crazies and now it's just some cult?

Wolfenstein 2 is good for that nazi killin.

Eh; kinda figured that would happen. It's still immensely satisfying taking down the cult, but...

Further thoughts on The Show:
- I think the Jose Castillo guy in the Cubs minors is supposed to be Mark Zagunis. Anyway, Schwarber is on the 60-day DL so I had to call him up. He's been pretty good... My fastest runner at 79 speed.
- Wish the Cubs had faster runners. Stealing is difficult and not fun with this slow-rated team.
- Albert Pujols's speed is literally zero. Lower than any pitcher I've seen. Hah.
- Amazing attention to detail like the Cubs rubbing their helmit, stirring something after hits & bullpen dancing after a home run

i thought impact veteran jorge posada was slow with a 12 speed rating but live series victor martinez has a 5 (five), makes posada look like rickey henderson.

It's awesome they use the full 0-99 scale. I've always hated that games like Madden are basically 40-99

i've faced him a few times in BR and he's torched me. the last time i faced him i just walked him to start the inning. i wonder what ranked is going to be like when people start unlocking these guys from the programs. it seems like it should be the same as exotic weapons in destiny, where you can only use one at a time.

I have most of the immortals programs at 70-80% and finished all but 4 of the career arcs (Utley, Molitor, Carter and Hoffman). I’ve yet to use Vlad but a buddy of mine unlocked him by finishing all team collections.

you work fast.

do they avoid putting famous 90's steroid users in these games? i've been hoping for a sosa program, but then i realized that i haven't seen any of bonds/mcgwire/sosa/clemens/etc in either game i've played. i really want a sosa card with 125 power.

what it comes down to is who they have the rights for. most of the legend players are part of the major league baseball players alumni association (mlbpaa). san diego studios (sds) has an agreement with the mlbpaa to use those players' likeness in the game. the reason they were able to include babe ruth in this year's game was due to securing an agreement with luminary group, a company that represents a handful of classic baseball players like honus wagner, three finger brown, cy young and satchel paige, among others.

in regards to bonds, he opted out of mlb's licensing agreement way back when. that is why you see "reggie stocker" in past versions of the show.

I think Vlad is the only one out/available in BR since the rest require future Career Arcs that aren't released yet.

That said, I am the master at grounding out with Vlad. I've drafted him two or three times in BR and I suck butthole with him.

Yesterday i was playing MLB the Show franchise against the Rockies, 4/22 game.

leading 8-5 going into the bottom 9th. bring in Brandon Morrow (who isn't fun to pitch w/) who loads the bases then Arenado hits a grand slam walk off, Rockies win 9-8.

i am never touching this game ever again.

I had a tweet of the King of Kong documentary tweeted in my timeline today. What an interesting and absurd cast of characters, my god. It’s on YouTube if you just search it.

Hell no, what a let down for the epic reward. On a better note, I made World Series division already, by far the earliest I've done so. Idk If I should feel good about it or sad that I play enough to do that.
