    R.B.I. Baseball 14

    Game » consists of 6 releases. Released Apr 09, 2014

    Major League Baseball is getting into the video game business with the release of a new game that says "RBI Baseball" right on the (digital) cover.

    Why did Jeff record a video on the original R.B.I only a week before?

    Poll Why did Jeff record a video on the original R.B.I only a week before? (324 votes)

    Jeff is a prophet 16%
    Jeff is part of the video game illuminati 31%
    Giant Bomb so big they influence what the industry does next 9%
    'Coincidence' 13%
    Chemtrails 31%

    I don't want to be a conspiracy theorist, but seems like a massive coincidence that Jeff recorded a video on the original R.B.I baseball just a week before this was announced... A title Jeff has never mentioned or I'd ever even heard of before.

    So my real question is: Is Jeff a prophet? a member of the video game illuminati? Giant Bomb so big they influence what the industry does next? Chemtrails?

    In all fairness, about 2 weeks before the R.B.I. Baseball video went up, I got the itch to play a little Super Bases Loaded. You know, winter. The baseball months.

    But actually chemtrails.

    There may have been been rumours of a new RBI baseball game circulating on the game journalist grapevine, and that gave him the urge to play the original.

    That or he's a prophet.

    I seem to recall him mentioning Rise of the Triad out of nowhere shortly before the remake was announced, too. So, yeah, chemtrails all up in this piece.

    What's great is that I read your question before looking at the options, and I said to myself "Chemtrails", and then it was actually an option. An option that I picked, obviously.

    Jeff has a long and storied history of being unintentionally prophetic. He could probably run a cult if he wanted to.

    True. Also, whenever he is pressed on the issue (of his off-hand predictions coming true) he shrugs it off nonchalantly. If he has nothing to hide why doesn't he answer the question.

    Actually it's very likely that someone on the inside told him, and asked him not to say anything until after the announcement.

    The most rational explanation is that Jeff is a lizard.

    10000% agree. It's reasonable to think Jeff was replaced by a reptile body-double sometime between the GOTY deliberations and last weeks podcast, I think.

    Remember the livestream before leaving the office? Jeff stated clearly: "Fuck all videogames". But successively, and slowly, it has become "I don't like videogames" and I now present you with this image:https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bd9v6j0CIAAHbFy.png

    Other things that point to this is the new premium feature, dubbed simply "???????????????????????" as if written in some strange, alien language.

    They were talking on the Bombcast about baseball games lately, about how the MLB ended their licencing agreement with 2K (or something), which probably got Jeff thinking about, you know, when Baseball games used to be better.

    They predicted that Gears of War: Judgement trailer.

    Also they predicted that that game would only have like four maps and the multiplayer would suck in comparison to other Gears games.

    The real question is what does this mean for the Giant Bomb Sports Team? Has Jeff broken away to use his powers for personal gain by resurrecting this franchise? Where does this leave Vinny, or is he in on this?

    Jeff predicted that Red Dead Redemption and Alan Wake would come out on the same day years before the games release dates were actually announced. If memory serves the group was talking about rumors of Rockstar making a new Red Dead. Jeff made a laugh and said "Yeah, that'll come out right along Alan Wake," which then got laughs from the other duders.

    So, yeah, Prophetic Chem Trails.

    Most likely option is the one that's not listed which is to say he already heard about it (rumors or someone working on it spilled before hand) and it gave him interest in checking out the old one.

    Or coincidence, sure.

    1) Jeff talks about RBI Baseball fairly frequently.

    2) He probably heard insider rumors about a new one and decided it was a good time to record the video.

    3) Illuminati

    Surprised Jeff didn't even mention RBI' 14 during the most recent Bombcast (March 18th). More details about the game and screen shots were released just last week. Looks like it will be great. As long as it's no more than $15. It's old school top down view with sharp graphics. There's couch co op but no online play.
