MLB 12: The Show (Playstation 3 and Vita)

Postby Herschie » February 6th, 2019, 12:25 am

Wait, what? Why it's been almost seven years, and as obsessed with The Show as Herschie is, he's going back to 12? Yep, that's right! You know, 18 just doesn't do it for me. The lighting is better. The graphics are far better. They streamlined the games so that you can play them quicker. All the retro rosters. And, I dunno, I get bored playing 18. So getting nostalgic, I decided to give 12 a whirl.

Little subtle things can often make or break a game, and I think that 18 feels more like a video game, whereas 12 felt more like I was watching a broadcast. 12 plays smoother, and doesn't have some bugs that 18 has. For example, I can bring in a pitcher and not have a quarter of his stamina inexplicably gone.

It's no wonder I once took my Vita to a wedding so that I could sneak out to the car to squeeze in a quick game of MLB 12: The Show. Heck, I almost flunked out of college because of this game!
