SmashPad Streamkend with MLB 13: The Show – March 9 at 2 PM ESTMarch 8th, 2013 | Written by Chris Selogy | Topic: PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, SmashPad Streamkend
Sony’s MLB 13: The Show is out this week and it’s also our featured game on this weekend’s SmashPad Streamkend as we take a look at this year’s installment of the best-selling baseball series. This year’s game features some big additions like a new mode that lets you jump right into The Postseason without the pretense of a 162 game season, another new mode that lets you play just real match-ups with accurate rosters for that day’s game called The Show Live, and an overhauled beginner’s mode that attempts to make it easier for newcomers to get into the game. As a veteran of the series, I’m particularly excited by some of the enhancements to Road to the Show that gives the mode’s presentation more of a personal touch this year. Tomorrow’s stream will mostly focus on Road to the Show since I can fit in more games than I could playing a full nine-inning game.
Next weekend will feature another Sony game, as God of War: Ascension will finally be out to give us a look at some of Kratos’ earliest adventures set before the first game in the series. The week after that will likely feature LEGO City Undercover, which is the first big Wii U game of 2013 and an original LEGO game that looks to be the culmination of everything Traveler’s Tales has learned making licensed LEGO games set in an original world and story. After that, we’ll have to see how the release calendar shakes out at the end of March as the fiscal quarter ends for many companies, which means that there will be quite a few games dumped out then to make the deadline for their financial numbers.
As always, check out this article for the video player when the stream goes live, though you can also subscribe to our Twitch.tv channel to get email notifications when our streams go live. I’ll also be archiving the stream once again, so you can check it out on our Youtube channel a few hours later to catch up. I’m hoping to start doing some more livestreams over the next few months as we can let you guys in on our reviews process of playing some of these games while also doing occasional streams of games just for the hell of it when I something I want to play live.
