Gah they unlocked the game here in Europe but the servers aren't working.

Retro mode seems fun and the framerate is real good in the Pro. Can't really say more than that right now. I really wanted to dive into DD, but that isn't happening without the servers. Gonna go to sleep now and try in the morning.

Does this series (and I guess The Show 17 in particular) allow me in any mode to make a custom team complete with custom players and take them through a season? Or would I have to put all of my custom players onto an existing team? I want to make my slowpitch team in this game lol.

Diamond Dynasty lets you make a team (including name/logo), but you are limited to using players you have cards for (and 1 custom player), which you earn from post-game rewards or buying packs (with stubs earned in game or using real money). Once you get the card they are yours to use for good, so there aren't X game contracts unlike Madden/NHL.

The bad news is I don't believe that you can't do a season with your DD team; you only do online or conquest (conquering territories from other teams controlled by the CPU). Otherwise you have to take a real team and make custom players (can't edit real team name/logos though).

Didn't they introduce DD seasons this year? I think I remember a video mentioning that.

Yes, if you own a he plays for you forever. No contracts or shit like that. That is probably a big reason why I enjoy this mode so much. It feels less restrictive.

Yep, the only real limitation to using players is that you can't just have one stud pitcher and use him every game, since your starting pitcher is randomly selected before the game (so it'll be your #1 vs their #1, your #2 vs their #2, etc, with rotation spot based on rating to avoid stuff like putting Kershaw as your #5 to get an unfair advantage).

It may have been just bad luck, but it felt like I very rarely got to use my #1 in MLB16.

I wonder which GB office will do the Quick Look (they've always done one, so I expect there will be one). I'd expect West, as Jeff seems like the most into Baseball. But, East sports Quick Looks are the best.

Oh, that's disappointing :( maybe I'll just do Road to the Show and save the custom stuff for Super Mega Baseball 2.

I really wish NBA 2K would remove contracts.......they easily have enough players and licensing deals to kill it. But they also have the biggest whales ever conspired in video games outside EAs FIFA.

Do you unlock equipment for your players as well in DD?


The random select though seems like a nice trade off though. I'd take that for infinite games and no contracts

Last season they added the classic stadiums that the PS3 version had, and this year they're adding stadiums that were replaced during the time it was on PS3, but Pre-PS4 like the Metrodome and Shea. I loved playing at some of the old stadiums, like The Polo Grounds, last season.

Truly. It's my favorite intro since 2012 (the one that was all about the crazy September leading up until the 2011 playoffs). Sure, I'm a little biased that that was a good one (my Orioles played a pivotal role in game 162). But, I think this new intro has it beat in terms of sheer beauty.

Is there online versus in Retro Mode? How about a season mode of some sort?

EDIT: Found the answer - it's a big fat no.

I too am getting Persona 5. I think The Show compliments it well. You can get in and out and play some RttS or online Diamond Dynasty in 30 minutes or less. Where as Persona 5 is best left for longer available game sessions.

EDIT: Got a question, I always choose SS for RttS. But is the outfield fun? What about catcher? I don't want to be a pitcher because I want to hit well...
