Curious to see who they added to the broadcast team, too, not that it matters too much in the long run. I would like for them to do what Madden started doing and adding new commentary lines every week. By the end of April, if you've played enough, you've already heard just about every line they have in the game.

Heidi Watney is in as a sideline reporter mostly for the March to October mode (basically narrating the story), don't think anything else has changed as far as commentators.

They've got it listed there for tomorrow night's stream: "***** ******* is joining the broadcast crew"

 

Could be Watney but I don't think they'd have had it revealed yet. But who knows ?

When that image was released she wasn't revealed yet. 99.9% sure the asteriks are for her.

There are probably financial reasons along with possible contractual issues, so it will never happen...

 

But how cool would it be if they had every team's broadcasting team in the game? Marlins home game? You get Severino and Holly. This way each broadcast team would only need to record a certain amount of lines and they could provide extra unique facts about each team/franchise. It'd make commentary fresher for longer.

Financial and contractual issues are one thing but also the amount of time and disc space that would take up. And each team only recording a certain amount of lines is false because every team would have to record their unique lines along with the same generic lines as everyone else like "out at first, he struck him out, etc etc." It's more work than you can imagine.

RBI is on Xbox, I guess it is better than nothing?

 

Not into Arcade style sports games. Thing I love about The show is the Live a Life more. One of the reasons I’ve been disappointed with the NHL series. EA too focused on the micro transaction game modes and refuse to provide content for the single player.

Can we put in Rich and Tommy instead?  haha.

Can I get the Legends version of this? Cause I'd much rather have Rich and Tommy

Saw the stream about the new mode, looks awesome. Only notable thing that kinda sucks is that rosters will be locked into the 2019 opening day rosters. So you can't edit your team to your liking beforehand. It's not a deal breaker but I think this is something they'll have to address in future years.

  • 2 weeks later...
1 week until the release!

 

Has any other info come out lately?

 

Stuff about Diamond Dynasty which is cool if you like it but I can't be bothered to care about it. That's a mode that you have to invest so much time into and that's just not my style of play anymore.

 

I was gonna wait for a price drop or a deal but I caved and preordered the standard version only because I had a little extra money from a few things so I'm treating myself. If it wasn't for March to October I would have still waited though. I love the concept for that mode and it'll force me to play more. The only other thing I'm interested in before release is when someone with an early copy puts up a video of all the uniforms to see any updates, corrections, and new throwbacks. Besides that I'm set for release day.

I tried to get into this but didn't have fun with it. If you don't play that mode, it seems like the standard version was the way to go. From what I can tell, all of the bonuses are for Diamond Dynasty.

Yep exactly. I bought a higher version last year thinking I'd get into DD but my interest didn't last. The concept sounds cool but you have to want to play with fantasy teams and I need my game closer to reality. In the 2012 game my Marlins were doing awesome and I still traded Hanley (who was doing awesome) and got Carlos Lee just to emulate reality. It's a curse but it's fun for me.

What's Diamond Dynasty mode?

 

You earn virtual packs of baseball cards and the players you collect comprise your fantasy team. You then play mostly online games vs other people's fantasy teams. The more you play the more you earn and then there are more intricate challenges you can do within the mode. If you like the idea of collecting and fantasy teams it's great but you need to invest a lot of time to do it right because the better cards you gotta earn by playing more and more games. There's a bunch of cool items and rewards and things.

Meh......sounds "interesting" I guess.  But if you get a sucky pack, you just suck?

Yeah, that's why you have to keep playing to earn more cards and improve your team. It's like a rebuild lol. Usually you have at least a couple good players to start you off and then you gotta work for more. If you're down for the grind it's a fun challenge.

People complain about this so much but I think The Show does a good job of not forcing you to actually spend money on this stuff. 

 

Definitely. You only really can buy stuff if you play that mode, and even then you can enjoy it without paying anything. Other games pile it on.
