Prepare for MLB 2K9 Starring 'Tim55Lincecum'

The groundwork has been laid for MLB 2k9, as the coverboy cast is the National League Cy Young Award winner, Tim Lincecum.

A couple of months from now we’ll be banging out 9 inning wars in the sequel to the Official Video Game of Diamond Hoggers. Hopefully expert mode is not impossible and medium difficulty isn’t so damn easy. That really ruined last year’s title. We’re sure we’ll be disappointed in some way, because after all if any video game is ever made too perfectly this blog will suffer, and we’ll lose our jobs because we’ll never leave our room playing out our sick role of Brian Cashman.

If it’s not too much to ask the producers though: realistic homerun hitting, a custom face scan of Jay Bruce and Johnny Cueto, and unlimited years of control in franchise mode rather than cutting it off at 25 years. That should take care of it.

Stay tuned for more on this title.
