It’s no secret that the Xbox One has lacked baseball options when compared to the Playstation 4. MLB the Show is a fantastic simulation experience that benefits greatly from the MLB license. It’s honestly unfair to try to compare it to RBI Baseball, traditionally the only option for Xbox One fans. Thankfully this past year, Super Mega Baseball stepped up to the plate, swung and sent one deep. To quote our review, “Xbox One owners finally have a baseball game that will make them smile again. While not perfect or fulfilling to all audiences, Super Mega Baseball is more than adequate for what it tries to accomplish and sets itself up well in scoring position for any potential tweaks or future releases down the line.”
This October, all Xbox Live Gold members will have the opportunity to join in on the action as Super Mega Baseball is free as part of Games with Gold. Come 2017, a completely revamped roster of features will take the mound in the form of Super Mega Baseball 2. Players will experience enhanced character models and new stadiums that retain the personality of the original. Online Co-op and PVP will allow for new ways to play with or against friends. Player and league customization will be even deeper as you can now choose the number of teams in the league as well as their logos and uniforms as well as the individual player stats and appearances. The gameplay will receive some tweaks to refine the experience even further providing one of the best sports game experiences on console for hardcore and casual fans alike.
We highly suggest giving Super Mega Baseball a chance this October. Feel free to join us on October 1st when we stream the game on Twitch.tv/XBLAFans.
