MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars gets fantasy price

DS Fanboy rather liked Major League Baseball 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars (even if it's a mouthful to say). Those of you that are interested in this odd but fun baseball title should consider picking it up today, though, as opposed to any other day, so that you can take advantage of Amazon's temporary sale.

Until 12am Pacific time, Amazon will have the game available for $14.99. If you don't mind outdated rosters, and you're craving a good, cheap baseball experience on your DS, this title probably won't disappoint. It may not be as weird and wacky as a Mutant League game (ah, if only), but it does offer a refreshing experience compared to some run-of-the-mill baseball titles out there.


2K and Konami reveal MLB Power Pros 2008

Fans of baseball, be excited. The MLB Power Pros franchise isn't going away, as 2K and Konami announce the joint venture of bringing MLB Power Pros 2008 to a DS near you this fall. The game will feature real MLB players, along with the a promising Franchise mode that lets you take over the role of general manager and control your team's destiny.

The game will also feature two story-based game modes, in the Success and MLB Life modes. In Success mode, players take part in the story-based career of rising players in the Double-A Minor League system, where MLB Life lets players simulate the exciting life and experience of being a Major League Baseball player over the course of a 20-year career.

DS Fanboy Review: MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars


Never have the St. Louis Cardinals had a better pitching game than in my days on the mound in MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars. Under the influence of my super arm and eagle eye, the Cards threw out would-be hitters by the dozens, and laughed as they stumped off the field, their over-large shoulders swinging dejectedly. Those golden moments dripped glory, and there upon the mound, we found joy.

The problem is that the Cards never suffered worse at the plate than they have under my regime. So it goes.

DS Fanboy interview: Rob Hawkey on MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars


Responses to the recent announcement of MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars have been wildly mixed. Rather than pulling a dumbed-down version of the console title to the DS, as is usual with cross-platform releases, 2K Sports took a different turn. Deep Fried Entertainment produced something completely different for the handheld -- and we really mean different -- and while it seems to be a risky proposition, it's an interesting one.

We sat down with Rob Hawkey, Game Director at Deep Fried to discuss the unusual baseball title, and he had a lot to tell us about what went into the design and creation of MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars. Slide past the break for all the details.
