fastballs, suicide squeezes, grass-staining dives,
seventh-inning stretches, walk-off homeruns, peanuts
these are just some of the things
that make the sport of baseball Americas favorite
pastime. The victory of a baseball game can depend
on the walk-off homerun in the ninth inning or a simple
second base steal. Anything can make an impact in
a baseball game because- as a wise man once said -
"it aint over til its over.
baseball is America's favorite pastime, we're not
sure that can be said for gamers. Baseball isn't nearly
the juggernaut of the sports gaming world as one would
believe. Eagle eye gamers will take note that while
ESPNs football and basketball games were budget priced,
this years MLB 2005 won't be as easy on your wallet.
The game will retail for $50 US, which will be a kick
in the teeth of gamers who were hoping every ESPN
sports title would be a drop in the bucket. Why the
hefty price tag? Not nearly as much competition. Maybe
things will change just before the game is released
in March. You can cross your fingers.
play which appeared in last years installment will
once again have armchair pitchers firing up the cable
modem for some fastball. Currently Sega is playing
coy as to the new features going into this years game,
quite possibly to keep the competition at bay. We'll
have more info when Sega unlocks the vault.
