Master swordsman Isao Machii is back! This time he’s here to cut a fastball in two.
Documents from the lawsuit over Curt Schilling’s failed attempt to launch his own video game company—dubbed 38 Studios—have been released today in Rhode Island. If you don’t recall 38 Studios, it’s because the company laid off its entire staff and went bankrupt in 2012, despite getting a $75 million loan from the…
Yes, you read that right. Baseball fighting game. Two combatants, two bats, one deadly, deadly ball. Oh, and some of the characters are skateboarding robots.
After losing a game, you might think what this Japanese baseball team did was rather extreme. Then again, you might think this is pretty great.
Recently, the above GIF has been appearing on numerous Japanese sites. Commenters have been criticizing the woman based only on this animated image. But what's going on? Time to delve deeper.
In your time on the internet, you've probably seen a ton of cat videos. Cute ones, funny ones, and jumping ones. But, you know what was missing from them? Taiwanese baseball announcers, that's what.
One of Japan's most popular baseball teams, the Hanshin Tigers, released a new poster that looks exactly like the poster for X-Men: Days of Future Past. That's no accident.
For the second straight year we've gotten a January surprise with regards to baseball video games. And for the second straight year, it only nominally keeps Xbox as a relevant platform for Major League Baseball fans.
We are nearing the 10-year anniversary of the licensing deal that killed MVP Baseball, yet still the game lives on—on PC, even—thanks to "MVP Caribe," a celebration of Latin American baseball that just published its seventh "total conversion" mod.
The score was 4 to 3, two outs in the ninth, when I woke up on the couch. No one was on base. "I don't need to see this," I said. "Nah, stick around," Dad said. I had two games that day, the World Series on TV, and Hardball! on my Commodore 64. If the Los Angeles Dodgers didn't win one, I'd make them win the other.
Yesterday a reader sent me a screenshot in MLB 13 The Show of Nick Markakis, the Baltimore outfielder, taking his position at shortstop after pinch-hitting for J.J. Hardy. To a casual fan, it sort of sits there, waiting for you to guess what's wrong. Here's a hint: In real life, Markakis throws lefthanded.
The Dodgers and Dodger fans want Carlos Quentin's ass on a platter but they will not get it. Not until June. But thanks to the magic of video games, and MLB 13 The Show's "The Show Live", you can hit him in every single plate appearance he should have made at Dodger Stadium tonight.
Major League Baseball 2K13 is an offensively recycled product and an embarrassment to sports video games. In my five years as Kotaku's sports writer, I've spent a good deal of time in comments defending the genre, and those who make its games, from the worn-out slur that annual sports titles are nothing but reskinned…
I hope you don't have any fond memories of the Hundred Acre Wood, because they're all about to be replaced with white knuckled frustration when you play Winnie The Pooh Home Run Derby. It's the Disney-produced children's flash game that's so difficult, you just might smash your monitor.
Mark Little flicks the joystick and opens a special developer's menu in Major League Baseball 2K12. The screen jumps to an empty ballpark, with a few lines representing the trajectory of a pitch and the timing of the batter trying to hit it. Little starts fooling with some ratings, creating a situation involving a…
