Super Mega Baseball 2 is out & swinging for the fences

Baseball is one of those sports that I can fundamentally appreciate facets of, but could never quite get my head around the whole of it. Our boy Sam Horti was of the same mind when he took a look at Metalhead Software's Super Mega Baseball last year, finding it to be just pure enough of an experience to click. This week, its sequel stepped up…

Super Mega Baseball 2 slides home on May 1st

Hey batter batter batter swing batter 'em up Super Mega Baseball 2 will launch on May 1st, developers Metalhead Software announced today. The first one is a decent b-baller with more serious gameguts than its cartoony look might suggest, and the sequel will bring online multiplayer along with a new art style that makes players look less like geese.

Super Mega Baseball 2 delayed into 2018

Oh no. Our Adam is on holiday this week, which means he won't see today's news that Super Mega Baseball 2 [official site] has been delayed. Which means that, rather than an e-mail from the developers, it'll likely be this post breaking that news to him. It's me telling him that the sequel to the ballbaser he quite likes won't come in September, and he'll…

So Super Mega Baseball's pitch is just about perfect for…

Super Mega Baseball 2 shows off more-realistic art style

We're not exactly overrun with good baseball games on PC, but Super Mega Baseball is about the best. It's a cartoon representation of America's pastime with a surprisingly…

Suhwing, Batter: Super Mega Baseball 2 Announced

Super Mega Baseball 2 [official site] is sliding our way in 2017, developers Metalhead Software have announced. Adam had brief but positive words to say about the first game, so good! More baseball is good. Don't be misled off by that cartoony art style, mind - it's not quite as arcadey as it looks. The big addition to the sequel is a good'un: online multiplayer.

Major League: Super Mega Baseball – Extra Innings

There are two great baseball series in the world. The PC is home to the brilliantly in-depth management simulation Out of the Park, which features the actual state of play in several countries worldwide as well as endless customisable fictional leagues. Then there's the Playstation exclusive MLB: The Show series, which I'm tempted to refer to as the FIFA of baseball games until I remind…
