BREAKING NEWS!!! KEN GRIFFEY JR.'S WINNING RUN 2018 IS IN DEVELOPMENT!
Baseball season has begun! As such, I've put the production of College Slam: March Madness Edition on the back-burner for the time being. This morning I've started finalizing the rosters for the game, using the opening day rosters from yesterday and today (for those teams that didn't play yesterday). I will post updates in this Forums as they become available.
Also, I will use the information from this release for any potential other releases (Ken Griffey 2018, RBI 2018, etc).
Ken Griffey Jr. Presents: Major League Baseball 2017
Today is the official release day of Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball 2017! You can get it in the Downloads > SNES section of the website.
The game is the same as last season's with the exception of this season's opening day rosters in play. One notable difference from last season's, however, is a changeup in the Homerun Derby. In 2015, I left the derby alone. In 2016, I included baseball legends. In 2017, I've added five of last season's participants in the All-Star Break's Home Run Contest. These participants are: Giancarlo Stanton, Adam Duvall, Corey Seager, Mark Trumbo, and Todd Frazier to go along with Ken Griffey Jr.
Winning Run 2016 - It's Here!
After the one-week Patreon members' early release, Ken Griffey Jr.'s Winning Run 2016 is finally available to the public.
The rosters are based on the ones that I used for last season's Ken Griffey Presents 2016, which are based on the opening-day rosters from the 2016 season.
For those unfamiliar, Winning Run is a different ball-game from the original. It's more simulation, less arcade. In many areas, it improves on many facets that Presents accomplished.
For starters, it expands on Presents' season stat tracking. Now, not only is your team's stats tracked through the season, but the rest of the league, as well. And to compliment this, there are sortable league leaders screens, as well.
Also, something new to Winning Run is the ability to trade players. So, while this is a 2016 game, you can trade players with other teams and keep your rosters updated for multiple season. Please note, this doesn't rule out future 2017 or further releases.
Oh, did I mention that all THIRTY MLB teams are here? In order to unlock the two expansion Tampa and Arizona teams, you must complete a season (not sure if it HAS to be 162 games or not).
I also updated the All-Star team (something not done in previous Griffey updates) and all eight Homerun Derby rosters (something not done until later releases).
I updated as many fine details as I could get my hands on to make this look as "official release" as possible. I was able to change Florida, California, and Montreal to Miami, Los Angeles, and Washington, respectively. However, I was unable to change the logo of the Washington Nationals. So, while the standings and team-select might read "Washington," there is still an Expos logo hanging around. Nothing game-breaking.
The download can be found in the SNES section of this website.
Bad News Baseball 2017
By popular demand, Bad News Baseball 2017 is a reality!
The rosters have been updated from generic boy names to those of full-grown Major Leaguers on twelve Major League Baseball teams. The original twelve teams remain intact with one exception: The "Mets" were changed to the "Yankees."
The ROM download can be found in the Downloads >> NES ROMs section of the website.
R.B.I. Baseball 3: 2017
R.B.I. Baseball 3: 2017 is available for download today! You can find it in the NES section under the Downloads tab.
The rosters are nearly identical to the ones used in my recent R.B.I. Baseball 2017 release, with the exception of the expanded rosters.
R.B.I. Baseball 2017
This week I released R.B.I. Baseball 2017 for NES emulators. All 30 MLB teams are represented with starting lineups resembling those used by each respective team on Opening Day.
Re-using most of the data, this ROM will serve as a foundation for the future release of R.B.I. Baseball 3: 2017 (which is presently in-production).
You can find R.B.I. Baseball 2017 in the NES section under the Downloads tab at the top of the page.
College Slam 2017
The latest release in my collection is a 2017 update of the 1996 Super Nintendo classic, College Slam. For those unfamiliar with this title, essentially it's NBA Jam goes to college. The update comes with 44 college teams, complete with player names, ratings, and appearances. The original had no player names, only generic positional names like "PT GUARD," "PWR FWD," and such. Also, there are seven All-American Teams, featuring the All-American first-teams from 2009-10 to 2015-16.
The download can be found in the SNES ROMS section of this website.
