Gaming News MLB The Show 17 – Juan Marichal Review
Today I’m taking a look at the new 85 rated Rookie Legend Juan Marichal in MLB The Show 17. This card was released to Diamond Dynasty on April 14th available through the Ticket Counter’s Level 50 addition. It will be one of three cards rotated through that level every few days and carries a cost of 700 tickets. He is not available to purchase from the marketplace. It’s a nicely rounded card overall. Marichal doesn’t have any outstanding attributes but also doesn’t have any glaring negatives. His pitching repertoire includes the ever-elusive Screwball to go along with a 4-Seamer, Curveball, Changeup and Slider. Pro’s – Unique pitch mix – All five pitches have above-average break ratings – High stamina Con’s – Slow pitching meter will take a few innings to get used to – Curveball, Changeup and Slider velocities all very similar If you are looking for a well rounded starting pitcher you could definitely do worse than this card. Also, with it being both a Rookie Series and Legend Series card, it will contribute towards stat collection for multiple missions while in use. Make sure to check out the video below for my full review. If there is a particular card you would like me to review next, make sure to hit me up on Twitter @SnaggleJ. Continue reading...

EA's Frostbite Engine: What is it, Why You Should Care
In recent weeks, I've noticed some OS forum dwellers stating their confusion about EA's Frostbite engine, and wondering what it means for the future of their favorite EA Sports games. For the most part, this discussion has emerged following the announcement that Madden NFL 18 will transition to the engine later this year. There are many fans that don't know the difference between Ignite and Frostbite. For those of you in that boat, this is an opportunity to learn what the Frostbite engine is, how it's affected the games industry thus far, and what you might be able to expect from it going forward. This isn't a technical discussion by any means. It's purely a basic rundown of the engine and how it operates based on known facts, interviews and my own personal perspective.

Out of the Park Baseball 18 Is Another Home Run
Here I was at 1:10 AM, unwittingly realizing I had let the night slip away from me. I had been playing Out of the Park Baseball for five hours in what I thought was going to be a quick play through to get a feel for the new game. But yet, I couldn't help myself. A small tweak here, move this player to AA from AAA because he's struggling, adjust my pitching staff, let's see if the Reds will take this trade. And then it was five hours later and 1:10 AM. That's how Out of the Park Baseball has always gotten you, and again this year, that's how it got me again. Out of the Park Baseball 18 is the latest release in a series that has become a staple in the discussion for Sports Game of the Year here at Operation Sports.
