Hit The Pass - Press Row Podcast

Team-building modes in sports games are intended to be played for months on end, if not year-round, making them initially tough to assess when in the early days following their respective releases. With over three weeks now having been spent playing Diamond Dynasty in MLB The Show 16 there's a lot more that has been evaluated following the coverage in the review roundtable episode, so host Bryan Wiedey and frequent guest T.J. Lauerman discuss everything there is to do with the popular mode in an all-new Press Row Podcast presented by Hit The Pass.

Whether it's the new card types, Captains, Missions, Collections, Battle Royale, Conquest, and the Inside Edge daily ratings adjustments, everything that's new in Diamond Dynasty is covered. Additionally, server-related problems slowing down menu navigation and causing "Challenge Failed" errors require mentioning as the experience has been considerably hampered and necessitated multiple emergency patches. The duo also goes over their current lineups, the decisions that have been made in constructing their rosters, and sleeper picks to consider using on your own teams out there.

MLB The Show 16 represents another year forward for a series that knows its many strengths and continues to build on them but may not be doing enough to bolster its areas of weakness. All the while a new issue has emerged in recent days with crippling server drag being felt throughout all the menus severely hampering the experience for all consumers. This review roundtable panel discussion on MLB The Show 16 extensively covers gameplay, graphics, Road to the Show, Franchise, Diamond Dynasty, and much more!
