Reviews Are In For MLB: The Bigs 2

Posted by on Jul 7, 2009 in Baseball Video Games | 0 comments

Today is the official release date of MLB: The Bigs 2. While I’ve never personally played the Bigs, I always had the understanding that the game is like NBA Jam for baseball. As a longtime fan of NBA Jam, I gotta say that’s a pretty cool idea for a baseball video game. The game is out on XBox 360, PS3, and Wii and produced by 2K Sports – the same crew that released MLB 2K9 in March. 2K9 was clearly the less popular option of this year’s main baseball  video games, but Bigs doesn’t seem interested in competing with either of those titles. Early reviews of The Bigs are in, and the game seems to be high on fun and energy, low on realistic gameplay. If you’re into a video game that is sports related and high on entertainment...

Week Two Review: MLB 2K9

Posted by on Mar 14, 2009 in Baseball Video Games | 0 comments

BeeZee’s Note: Our series of reviews of baseball video games continues with MLB 2K9. FBD first base coach Brandon Bilko of Priced Out Of The Citi stopped by to give us his review after playing the game since its release date. Let’s dispel one thing before we kick off this review – this game is not and will not be MLB 09: The Show. The game is inferior and will continue to be so unless 2K Sports gets its act together… or until their third party contract rights with MLB run out in 2012. Until then, we baseball fans without a PS3 will have to hope that things keep improving, and it’s safe to say they have slightly in 2009. Lets get to the different game play aspects of MLB 2K9 for the XBOX 360. Hitting In MLB 2K9...

Week Two Review: MLB Front Office Manager

Posted by on Feb 10, 2009 in Baseball News, Baseball Video Games | 0 comments

BeeZee’s Note: We’re going to start bringing you the best reviews in baseball video games this year. What better place to start than with the first video game completely devoted to fantasy baseball – 2K Sports’ MLB Front Office Manager. FBD interim bench coach Cory Humes of stopped by to give us his review after playing the game for two weeks. As someone who has played and enjoyed computer-based sim league baseball games such as Out of the Park Baseball and Baseball Mogul, 2K Sports’ MLB Front Office Manager has my name written all over it. I’m the kind of person who spends more time in fantasy drafts and on the trade block than actually playing out my team’s schedule in sports video games. It’s safe to say that I’m solidly a member of Front Office Manager’s target...

Play Fantasy Baseball On Your Playstation

Posted by on Oct 9, 2008 in Baseball News, Baseball Video Games, Fantasy Baseball Games | 2 comments

2K Sports announced today that they will be releasing a fantasy baseball-style game for the XBox 360, Playstation 3, and PC this winter – MLB Front Office Manager. I’m one of the few gamers on earth that doesn’t have a next-gen gaming system yet, so hopefully they release this game on PS2… yeah, I’m old school like that. Front Office Manager sounds like it will be very similar to EA Sports’ NFL Head Coach – manage the game without having to actually play the game. Think “Dynasty Mode” in your current MLB game without having the option of simulating or playing a baseball game. According to stats mentioned in the 2K Sports press release, 3.5 million peeps play fantasy baseball. But will you want to play a simulated fantasy baseball? Some more info about the game: MLB Front Office...
