I recently took advantage of the 50% off All-Star week special to purchase Out of the Park Baseball 14 for just over $20 Canadian. I had immediately made the jump from OOTP Baseball 13 to 14 without any hesitation based on the price. Here is a little history with this [fairly new] franchise to me.
Over the past seven years I had got my baseball kicks from the MLB2k series. I was aware of the OOTP baseball series but I didn’t think I’d have enough time for both so I stuck with the familiar face. It wasn’t until the beginning of this year when MLB2k13 was made known to the public that they were going to release another title after everyone assumed that 2k was done with baseball altogether.
Whatever the case was MLB2k13 came out with poor reviews, stating that it was essentially a $60 roster update. The only other added feature was the addition of the Houston Astros moving to the American League. They even went as far as removing online leagues to an already stripped down game. 2k then continued to ONLY push sales by promoting the “Perfect Game Challenge”. This was the final straw for me after years of loyalty, I said to myself “I guess I won’t be playing any kind of baseball simulation this year” being an Xbox 360 owner, that was the only choice I had.
This is what brought me to the highly touted OOTP Baseball franchise, specifically OOTP 13. This game was also half price due to its one year cycle. I’m now enjoying OOTP 14 more than any baseball game in the past. Suffice it to say, I won’t be going back! Continue Reading
As some of you noticed, I’ve revamped my blog once again. It has a new sleek look with some new additions, which I will get to.
– The first noticeable change is the colour. The scheme is more powerful than my previous one. It stands out but it’s not hard on the eyes. It’s a very fluid formula if I say so myself.
– Secondly, I went ahead and added a search bar at the top. I felt this will be needed once I get going again.
– I updated the look of my Twitter feed, and quite frankly I think it looks fantastic. It even gives people the ability to tweet directly at me, now how about that?
– Finally it’s easier than ever to sort through my reviews with the addition of the Archives and Categories. You will be able to easily find posts related to what you’re looking for. It’s really another extension to the search bar.
Already I feel that my blog has taken a couple steps up from mediocrity. I am happy with how it looks now and I can focus on bringing out my reviews and impressions!
Well it’s been well over a year since I last posted on my blog. It’s been TOO long as far I’m concerned. I’m still in the infant stages of this ‘blog revival’ and I’ve gone through and edited some of the content already. Once that is completed I will be ready to start fresh once again with the possibility of a NEW look!
