Super Mega Baseball: Extra innings Review: R.I.S.P.

Baseball to fill the void, but most were not charmed by the lackluster attempt at arcade-style nostalgia. And so Xbox-owning baseball gamers continued to wait. Now, Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings has stepped up to the plate, and the first pitch is on the way.

RBI Baseball

Baseball, America’s pastime, has long been a revered genre of video games, with some real gems appearing over the years for both simulation and arcade fans alike. The original NES R.B.I. Baseball and its successors remain well-liked, and this revival of the series by MLB.com looks to reignite this passion and to give all gamers — especially those console gamers without any baseball game choices at all — the opportunity to take their favorite team all the way to becoming World Series champions. R.B.I. Baseball 14 sets out knowing it must strike a balance between the classic controls, gameplay and nuance of the original, while also being a fun, accessible game for those baseball fans new to the series.

Diabolical Pitch review (XBLA)

Diabolical Pitch was developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and published by Microsoft. It was released on April 4, 2012 for 800 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

When the gaming world learned that Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture were developing a game that would utilize Kinect, taste buds quickly started to tingle. Grasshopper is known as one of the most creative and stylish developers out there, so the prospect of their minds working with the new technology had many buzzing with anticipation. The final product, Diabolical Pitch, is as wild and fantastic as everyone had hoped. In Diabolical Pitch, you take on the role of a professional baseball pitcher who is struck down with injury at the peak of his career. Shortly after this tragic turn of events, our protagonist decides to visit a theme park. It is here that our hero is greeted by a cow in a shirt and tie who enables our hero to throw again. This gift however, comes with a price. McMillan must make his way through this dark and twisted carnival, which is filled with horrors. Mostly just life sized dolls that resemble strange animal-human hybrids. Armed only with his pitching arm, McMillan must take it to this marionette army of zoo animals if he ever wants to return to Hall of Fame form. This is where our strange adventure begins.

New Diabolical Pitch screenshots bring the heat

Grasshopper Manufacture has released five new screenshots of their upcoming Kinect enabled baseball/horror hybrid Diabolical Pitch. For those unfamiliar Diabolical Pitch gives players control over a baseball player in an amusement park overrun by horrors. To fend off the game’s enemies, you’ll be throwing baseballs utilizing Kinect’s motion sensor. Think of it as a quasi-light gun game. One that has you throwing fastballs at guys wearing tiger masks. The madness can be kicked up a notch by playing the game with a friend in multiplayer mode, which allows you to combine forces and utilize different abilities and power ups. To take a look at the rest of the screenshots that Suda 51’s gang has tossed our way, click the link below.
