I don't really get arcade style sports games.

I love the Pawapuro series. I hope this lives up to that pedigree.

Oh god, they're literally bobbleheads. You can see the springs.

No one game should have all this Mauer?

It's three eggs now? I thought it was 24.

The numbers are the quality of the pitch. Higher number means more break.

Jeff needs to sing more in quick looks

Nice to see the Rays front and center.

The only good game to EVER have Bobble in the title was Bubble Bobble.

I love casual baseball games almost as much as I love baseball.

Music reminds me of virtua tennis, and/or pretty much every sega dreamcast game.

Well xpantherx now has enough material to make a new Best of Volume..

Posted by MisterMouse

To those who have said they love the PawaPuro series... I completely agree with you.

Posted by ElCapitan

@StriderNo9: It's actually less casual than you'd think. Deceptively deep. I might have to pick up a replacement Xbox for this.

I want to see bobblehead Brian Wilson in this game

no legs is freaky.
I wonder if it would've been more acceptable if they didn't have any arms. 

Posted by Hockeymask27

The no legs think really creeps me out.

I really want the music from this game.

This is pretty much just a stripped down version of MLB Power Pros, which is a fantastic yet massively underrated series.  Power Pros 2008 is one of my favorite baseball games of all time.  Hopefully if this game does well, they release another Power Pros game.

Oh god, those characters are too weird looking for me.

What a stupid idea for a game..

@Tesla: It is nice to see them get some spotlight. It's a rare occurrence otherwise.

oh gawd so creepy looking

I don't think anyone knows this, but being the baseball video game fanatic that I am, this game is the spiritual successor to the PowerPros franchise which had two releases on PS2. It's also a very popular franchise in Japan. The PowerPros franchise has always been amazing, and super deep considering it's super cartoony look. They even get the batting stances right which is awesome.

Baseball, baseball, baseball song for the menu!

If they are doing a bobblehead game like this, I want ways to import some of the more popular sci-fi/comic bobbleheads into this game (ie. Spock, Batman, etc.) then dump them into a team.

I don't really get simulation style sports games. I guess to each their own.

It bothers me that I like Jeff's singing as much as I do

That would be pretty good.


You could totally throw somebody out at first from right field in Sports Talk Baseball for the Genesis

Bummed it doesnt have the really bizarre story mode that the power pros games had on wii

Posted by BaconGames

Gotta love the MC Eiht reference at the very end.


Posted by heatDrive88

This really isn't the worst baseball game they could have made. If the price was cheap, it really wouldn't be THAT bad of a buy.

Posted by buft

I really like how much time they spent on creating plenty of modes to play through, thats been the most major disappointment when it comes to downloadable sports games but i just wish the gameplay was a little better tweaked like run speed and pitching. the day one DLC is a bit of a bummer too, locking out game modes sucks.

The auto-switching seems pretty ass.
But that menu music was pretty hype
EDIT: Man, watching all those bobbling heads gives me a headache

Posted by MrOldboy

God dammit Konami. Either bring back MLB Power Pros, or just localize the NPB pawapuro game. It would have been easier than creating this mess.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

The biggest problem with this game is that it isn't sprites or on the Neo Geo.

Posted by Ghostiet

I shat my pants listening to Jeff's madness-induced singing.

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

Glad they did a quicklook of this. Really fun to watch with my little brother, of whom, is a huge baseball fan.

Posted by Khann

Having never played a game like this, I have absolutely no idea how the batting actually working watching this video.

Posted by Wes899

Ahhhh their legs!

Gettin' high and playin' basebawl!

I need to get a baseball game. I have pretty much every other sport. Tiger Woods 07, NBA 2K6 and NHL09 on 360 and FIFA10 and NFL 2003 on PS2, but not a single baseball game since I threw away my Triple Play Baseball on PC because it only worked on windows 98. But I don't spend much on sports games. I've paid between €0 and €13 for those games and the average is only €5.

@MrOldboy: Eh, I don't find this terribly offensive. I do like the Power Pros series but I like being able to play a Power Pros-like game for $10.00 on XBLA. Not sure why they felt the need to change things though, I think MLB Power Pros on Wii sold decently?

Jeff's singing reminds me of this:
