MLB 17 The Show now w/more Ken Griffey Jr. Slugfest!
« on: March 18, 2017, 10:00:09 AM »
Just pre-ordered the Standard Edition off Amazon for $47.99 (Saved $12) with the pre-order price special. MVP Edition has a cool looking Griffey Jr. case bearing his uniform number which is selling at $69.99 at other places.

Looking forward to the expanded Path to the Show in Road to the Show as well as having Griffey Jr's actual swing and such.

Yeah  I preordered it. I'm just getting it for RTTS and Franchise Mode.

HR Derby lets you hit at classic ballparks including (just some): Shibe Park, Forbes Field, Polo Grounds(!), and Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome(!)

I like the game except they use black text on a grey background to show the stats when a pitcher takes the mound. I can't read that.

I lost 15-7 in retro mode. I was playing as the Angels vs the Tigers. The AI puts in Al Kaline to pinch hit during the middle innings and I scratch my head. They brought out Jack Morris to pitch the last few innings. All the Angels had for HOF'er was Rod Carew. I really could have used Nolan Ryan/

I enjoyed Retro Mode but doing it 1 time was enough for me.

I've been playing the shit out of this lately, pretty much all RTTS.  I'm in 2020 having my breakout year for the Tigers.

This is the first Show I've played and couldn't wrap my head around the PCI and the hitting mechanics until I watched this video.



Now I'm getting good results and every strike out or bad swing feels like my mistake instead of the game being unfair.  Crushing dingers feels awesome in this.
