For all you Triple Play users out there...

MVP Baseball 2003 Interview

This is a link to an interview about EA Sports' new baseball game "MVP Baseball 2003", which (finally) lays to rest the Triple Play series. There seems to be a lot of pretty good features in there.

Triple Play has been really disappointing lately so hopefully this will turn the series around. I was looking forward to All Star Baseball 2004 because it was supposed to have online play but they canceled that feature. So now I don't know if I'll even pick up a baseball game.

I've only played the demos for High Heat, and I didn't particularly find it very appealing. Even though HH had things like wild pitches and passed balls, they occurred too frequently. I think that is probably one of the hardest things to create in sports games- those "random" (but not really) events. That is why injuries were taken out starting with TP 2000- they happened too much. I am sort of worried with the franchise mode- apparently there are "career-ending" injuries- and I hope they don't occur often. It certainly seems though that EA is trying to put their best effort possible. I did like the extensiveness of HH's stats though, you could sort them, print them in box score-style. Hopefully something similar will exist with MVPB.

MVP baseball does sound good, I will have to rent it before I buy HH, but HH will still probally be my choice.

I like HH... it is a very good baseball game...

But what I love from ASB is their Franchise Mode.. create any team in any city and run your team with a pretty small budget.



ASB > HH

By a little..

Forgive my ignorance, but is Al Gill a real person? If not, does he have the same stats as Kevin did? That is how the APBA baseball game (stat-based) did it. I believe his name there was "Mike Butcher..."
