Anyways, while I like ESPN more as far as gameplay, the Walking bug is killing it for me, and I'm now going to play MVP as my primary game.  If they can get it fixed, great, if not, I'm done with that franchise, or at least wait a few weeks on new purchases.

If you were unable to get one of the two moving balls onto where you aimed your pitch, the hitter will see where you pitched the ball and may be able to exploit it using the Slam Zone.

Thank you for the explanation.  This may play better then it sounds, but right now, it sounds like all those basketball free throw meters from past NBA games.  Push the buttons when the circle is in the middle of the crosshairs to hit the shot type deal.  That wasn't much fun at all in basketball, at least for me.  Does it just play differently in the baseball game, or am I still completely missing it?


That's exactly what it is.  It's really easy on easy mode (go figure), but it gets tough as you bump up the sliders

How fast are games in MVP vs ESPN?  I think last year a game for MVP took about 25 minutes, with ESPN taking 35 minutes or so.  That extra time really adds up.

Can you still jump into games in MVP?  How about Sega?  Anyway to sim the rest of a blowout?


ESPN is longer because of the cutscenes, but you can set an option for hurry up mode, where they take out the fluff, and just play the game.  I'm averaging about 35-45 mins a game in ESPN, and probably about 30 mins in MVP

You can jump in on both games

here are some good sliders (well i've only played 1 game with them, but they're pretty good).  I'd recommend not adjusting the Human Pitcher Fatigue to what he suggests, the pitcher gets tired too quickly.  You might want to play around with that

well, i finally observed teh wild pitches first hand.  I had like 5 of them in one game.  I'm thinking it only effects road games and when there's a player on 1st base.  Someone mentioned pressure might have something to do with it.  I wonder if you can turn the pressure feature off, and if that would fix it.

Also got jipped on a wild pitch.  My guy advanced to 2nd base on a wild throw, but when the pitcher was ready to throw his next pitch, the guy was back at first.

I've been playing on rookie this whole time, and now i'm upping the difficulty.  I haven't lost a game I've personally played.  Pitching is way too easy, yet hitting is just right.

4212  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Baseball Wars '05 on: February 27, 2005, 05:24:26 AM
In my 4 games 1 exb, and 3 GM mode, I've never seen any wild pitches.

Ok, like lockdown I've also played more today and last night.  MVP has actually grown on me since my first reportings.  I finally figured out how to baserun but it still a bit cumbersome compared to MLB 2k5.  

Pitching:  I like MVP's style of pitching over MLB 2k5.  It just feels better.  While both share the similarity of hot/cold zones, MVP's meter makes it better.  Yes, ESPN has a meter that you can change to, but it still doesn't feel right.  The whole interface is so much smoother in MVP

Batting: I find MVP too easy to get on base, however I'm still on rookie difficulty.  But, I'm also on rookie level in MLB 2k5, but it's much harder to get on base.  So it's still quite comparable.  Swing animations is hit and miss (pun intended) in MLB 2k5, some look really good while others look awkward.

Fielding: This is a mixed bag.  I'm having a hard time deciding which game I like better as far as fielding goes.  MVP uses meters to gauge how fast and accurate your throws are.  However, MLB 2k5 does the same, but without any visual cues.  Throws are pressure sensitive.  The harder you press the more of a "line drive" the ball flight path is.  If throw off your bad foot you have a good chance on making your target.  Once again, some of the animations look off, but it doesn't affect gameplay, just cosmetics.

I like that you can use a limited turbo in MLB 2k5, but when controlling outfielders I press A which is turbo for baserunners, and end up diving, totally missing the ball.  The manual is a bit thin (not as bad as MVP), and I'm still learning all the details in the game.  By sharing time with both games, it's easy to get the controls mixed up.

Commentating:  The MVP crew does the broadcast for the SF Giants in real life.  I love them, but they sound so repetitive in MVP.  I like MLB 2k5's a lot better.

Presentation:  No doubt, MLB 2k5 wins this category hands down.  EA totally ignored that aspect of the game, which is pretty typical.

Overall, I tend to like MLB 2k5 a bit better, their GM mode is a lot better, and instead of focusing on the stadium aspects, it's more focused on players and the season.  MVP has some cool ideas, but at the end, MLB 2k5 shines.

Quote from: "Gwar21"
So, I think I've gotten a feel for how MLB2K5 compares to last year's version.  How does MVP compare to last year's version?  I really liked MVP on the PC, and if it's just more of the same, with more features, I'll probably pick it up again.  They didn't break anything, did they?

I'm not sure what I'll do about MLB2K5.  I got the ESPN game 2 years ago and really wanted to like it...but I just couldn't figure out how to pitch effectively.  I'd get smoked after a few innings every game.  It's a problem I've never had in a baseball game before, so I don't think it was due to a lack of pitching strategy knowledge on my part.   Tongue   I'll probably end up picking it up just because it's so cheap, though, unless those aforementioned baserunning errors are really common.


It's more of the same.  It's a bit cleaner, as far as tweaks go, but it's basically the same as last year, including the bad baserunning and the choppiness when throwing across the field.  

The Espn game from two years ago was totally different from last years.   Last year's from what I hear was a huge improvement (I didn't play the game from two years ago, last year ESPN 2K4 was my first time playing the series)  This year's ESPN was redone from the ground  up.  It's not the same engine as last years (unlike MVP) they revamped everything.  From my initial game I like what I see.  However like others have mentioned, if you hit a ball right at the pitcher, there is a 99% chance that he's going to catch it.

i'm not too impressed.  I'm having a field day trying to baserun.  I have it on the pc, and using the Saitek P880.  I'm following the instructions and nothing is happening.

be prepared when we still don't know what's going on at the season finale.  I'm sure they'll leave a huge ass cliffhanger for another season.  Sometimes I feel I have a hook in my mouth and being dragged along for a few moments, then allowing me to rest, than yanking on that line once again.

I really liked this episode, and I just started watching Alias on DVD, and holy shit that' also a fun show, but with better pacing.

I loved that opening.

Sadly, I got called away during Edgar's last scene regarding his mom. I started watching again when Jack & Tony arrived to see Behrooz and his dad running away. If anyone could fill me in on what happened, was Audrey able to get someone to help her, I'd appreciate it. I know the ending showed the mom still there watching TV, but is she stuck or just waiting for someone to get there?


Edgar found out nobody could help his mom, so he took his jacket and headed for the door.  Drisco saw him leaving and managaed to convince him to stay, because ...... wait for it....... that's what his mother would want him to do.

It's just too cheesy and doesn't really need to be on the show.

Yes it was a winnable game, and yes players on the Eagles team were making excuses.  Ask Freddie Mitchell and Fraley

If that's what you need to think to get through the day...<shrug>


Please tell me, what does Fraley telling the media that McNabb was sick during the 4th qtr mean then?  Especially now that McNabb has already said he wasn't sick.

Please tell me why was Freddie the Big Mouth Mitchell telling the media that he had to pick some of the plays because McNabb was so sick.  

Please, read that article, then get back to me.

They're called excuses.

This show unlike last nights 24, is unpredictable.  I had no idea Charlie was going go postal on the guy.
