I've gone old school.

Brought this home and am reliving my youth.

5 month-old at home now, so my gaming has changed dramatically.

Used to be lots of BF3 and some WoT. Now it's mostly:

Diaper Change Hero
Spitup Wipeup 3D
Your Turn To Burp Him
Pizza For Dinner?
Pizza for Dinner, Again?
2 Tired 2 Move

Pizza for dinner again, not so much. Just a warmed over version of the first.

LOL


Still lots of BF3 when I do game. Double XP this week! I zipped through Uncharted 3 in about three days. Multiplayer doesn't impress me, so I might do it again on hard.

My last baseball game was Ken Griffey Jr's for the SNES, I tried playing one of these new ones and could barely get it to pitch

Does The Show (probably 2009-2010 cause I want to do this on the cheap) or any other MLB game have a good training mode?

I got one of the newer Madden games, 09 I think and was pissed off that they took out the training mode playing around with it on my 2004 version did a ton to help my skills.

The NHL series is the only one that I've kept up with.

I'll put it this way, I have it on easy mode.

I don't think the pitching is that hard, but the harder the level is set, the harder it is to pitch and the more the batters get hits. Just takes practice to get good at it. That said, with the aforementioned wife and three kids I do not have time to play that much, so easy mode is fine with me for some cheap entertainment

I once had KGJ's baseball game. I remember it being pretty fun, other than the highly repetitive 8 bit music.

Not much of a training mode per se, but there are a lot of tips that the game will tell you. That and some help menu tutorials. The motions are not that hard, just getting them just right...

I started a new game of Fallout 3 yesterday. I really enjoy that game, and it has been awhile.

I was just thinking about doing the same thing. Fallout New Vegas is just missing something that makes it not as immersive.
