The lights are on
Every day my coworkers ask me how my MLB 2K13 is coming along. When I start talking about the glitches I'm finding, they often think I'm pulling their legs with preposterous, made-up stories. Since they're having such a hard time believing that a first baseman can get smacked in the face with a line drive so hard it almost goes into his brain, I've decided to record all of my games so they can see the comedy of errors unfold with their very own eyes.
Here are a handful of the strange things I saw playing MLB 2K13 for just four hours yesterday. Note: All of the teams that are not the Cubs or a Cubs Minor League affiliate are computer controlled.
The Line Drive to the FaceHow does this even happen? Was he looking at a girl in the crowd? A kid on one of my Little League teams got smacked in the face just like this, only he was looking up at the clouds when the ball was hit.

These glitches are amazingly bad, I would not think that a game like this would have this many problems considering the fact that it is far from their first base ball game.
On another topic tThe turtle beach headset commercial gets really annoying after watching it 15 times in a row.
These are great, the only reason I'd want to play this game is just to laugh at it.
It seems as Baseball graphic begin to rise, baseball physics deteriorate.
All these glitches... What a shame...
MLB the show is soooooooooooooooo much better
I just played this at Best Buy with a buddy of mine, it was so bad lol. Even if it was glitch free, the graphics still look like last gen and the controls were clunky and awful.
Test Chamber devoted to finding glitches? Eeeeeeeh?
Wow. Some, if not all, of those would piss me off. I expected better.
It's funny, any time I hear or see something about the MLB 2K series it's always about the glitches. Makes me glad that I have a PS3, so whenever I want to buy a baseball game I have a better option in The Show series. The Show series itself has never been entirely glitch free (at least in my experience with it), but whatever happens with those games doesn't even compare to the mess that the MLB 2K games seem to be.
Stuck on the Ump is probably my favorite video.
This article could've been called "Go Buy MLB: The Show"
even funnier is I got the vastly superior The Show 13 free today as part of targets buy 2 get 1. you must really love baseball sims to buy this game.
