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.

Well, it's no MLB: The Show, that's fer sure.
no ads ha ha ha
Wow. That is some seriously buggy AI. I have to wonder how things like that happen on an existing franchise that is this deep in a console life cycle. What surprises were there to encounter in development?
What a horrible game.
Sports Game of the Year?
Lol yep, that's pretty much the game.
not sure what everyone is talking about with the ads as i didnt see a single one but maybe they took them down
