If this game were any good we’d be playing hookie (MLB 2k10 release day)

We’ve already went on a long-winding rant about our grievances of 2ksports version of video game baseball. And yes, we’re going to probably pick up a copy today when the workday is done. We’re already fairly sure there will be game-breaking glitches that make it impossible to have fun.

That said, it’s the only game in town. What choice do we have? So we’ll buy it, and start a franchise with the Cincinnati Reds (and maybe the Rays on the side) and take our team to the depths of polygonal legendary status.

That cover above was a favor someone did for us because they know our achilles weakness for Jay Bruce and video games. Now here’s the real cover for those of you who haven’t seen it:

Early indications are that it’s a ‘solid’ game. That’s good to hear. Maybe we can breathe a sigh of relief. But it’s most likely going to crash and burn and be a dust collecting piece of shit on our entertainment center. It’s been a long time since we were treated to a great game of video game baseball. Like, long enough ago that we were still living in mom’s basement, stumbling home from the bar only to pee in the trash can because we didn’t want to walk all the way upstairs.

We’ll give you some early reviews and goodies if and (and most likely when) we pick the game up. Stay tuned.
