Perfect, a QL goes up just am I'm about to go to bed. Whisper sweet nothings into my ear as I doze off, Vinny.

Where's my Baseketball game?

That's a fucking intro!

no time for sleep, it's Quick Look time

Christ that intro, everything after that is anticlimactic.

The guys designing the intro have clearly been watching some Game of Thrones.

Posted by AlexanderSheen

They didn't install the game beforehand or what?

Holy hell, those load times...

What a season. What. A. Season.

Well now I just want to see giants stomp on cities in one massive pickup game...

And you could watch a fucking baseball game in the time it takes to load this thing.

Posted by spiketail

This intro is SO GOOD, I had to watch it again. No idea if they'll be able to top it in the rest of the QL.

DAT forced comedy in the intro :)

Edited by ghostyTrickster

Holy crap that first load.

Probably the best crowds I've seen in sports games though.

I feel like this is the generation of "These graphics don't look completely lifelike, therefore I think they look terrible."

The definitive MLB 14: The Show Quick Look.

Man, can't believe this is "next gen" frame rate was tanking constantly. Definitely less than 20fps on a lot of the cut aways.

Wish they had money riding on the match or something, I don't feel like they really want to win.

The display thing comes from recording from a PS4 set to 720p. Just over $200 and you get 1080p60 recording capabilities.

The game is pretty huge, so buy physical if you can. Until some % of the download completes you can only play exhibition. Sounds like a case of "I think we started recording this too soon, we should have waited". Downloading = the initial load of the game goes way up, as does in-game loadtimes.

Is this a Sega CD game? What's the deal with these load times?

Other than that and the framerate, the game actually looks really good. That's the best sports game crowd I've seen so far.

A baseball game quicklook without Bartolo Colon? What's the world coming to?

They fired the game up before it even hit 20% downloaded, the PS4 has a mechanical drive and cannot read or write at the same time, nor can downloads (especially of a game currently being played) be paused.

They should have stopped the recording and waited for it to finish. This gives the game an unfair bad impression.

So I don't know a lot about baseball, but what is up with the "KKK" thing at 43:30?

Posted by D_W

Why would the NY Giants (a football team) be in this game... :luchadeer.

Posted by Roomrunner

I enjoyed the Major League quoting at 52 mins.

Posted by joshua1prince19212

Lol love that bit where the guy couldn't walk down the stairs to the dugout. Lots of Janky animations all over the place if you could catch them. There's some quality there but feels like it's a hairs breadth away from falling apart at the seems.

"The crowds look alright."

Posted by ADAMWD

@aidenyx: a 'K' represents a strikeout by the pitcher, and a backwards 'K' a strikeout where the batter didn't swing. Teams usually display strikeouts for the game by putting up Ks on the jumbotron.

best intro

I know this one: "What's out of focus?" Right, Mr. Trebek?

Right, I forgot that you can start playing in the middle of downloading. I can imagine it won't be nearly as bad once it's fully loaded.

Posted by aidenyx

@adamwd: I figured it was something along those lines, but it really just caught me of guard. Thanks!

Edited by SomeJerk

That said, even the ones with physical copies experience it being framey. Hope it's not a design choice.

But hey, even if EA were making baseball games, this would be the best there was of modern releases.

That Major League reference at 52:16 was top fucking notch. Quality impression there @jeff.

Looks like the Giants have taken over Oregon.

Posted by Brettuss

@atom: I suspect the load times are due to the game being played for the first time. Just a guess.

This is some of the best commentary I have heard in a Quick Look.

Posted by Scodiac

Stop swingin' at junk! Says the fan who somehow always has two beers on the go in the stands. I love baseball.

Edited by gr8kamon

If anyone was wondering, Jeff couldn't get to the Double-A and Triple-A leagues because the All-Star teams do not have minor league affiliates. That's why it worked fine when he went to the Giants.

Hell yeah.

What's the logic on doing a QL on a game that isn't done installing? I know Jeff and Vinny already don't have a great impression of these games, but this just seems unfair. I thought the point of QLs is to give viewers an impression of the game.

Jeff complaining that not everything is available while the game is still downloading and installing things just seems kinda ignorant, isn't that obvious?

Posted by Fake_Empire

I feel like it's pretty unfair to judge a game that's only 30% installed yet.

Posted by betterinsodapop

Hell yeah, 2 Live Crew callout by @jeff

Posted by Yummylee

Ehhhh, I always find their sports games QLs to be so boring now. That American Football one they did way back that I guessed kicked it all off was funny, but it was because of the weird physics and animations and such. As these games get more refined and there's less weird shit happening, then all you've got is 2 guys playing a game they don't know how to play. So you've got an hour+ long QL that's neither especially entertaining nor informative.
