Super Mega Baseball 2

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.

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!
