Out Of The Park Baseball 15 Update Adds 3D Ball Physics
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Out of the Park Developments recently announced the release of a new update for Out of the Park Baseball 15, the company's baseball management game. The new version offers physics-based 3D ball flight and improvements to the 3D stadium editor among other additions and fixes. OOTP 15 includes a revamped interface, 3D ballpark support, more league options, the 2014 open day major league roster, and additional real international leagues.

OOTP 15's 4th Update:

  • Improved 3D ball flight engine, using realistic physics-based calculations
  • Improved 3D ballpark importer / editor
  • Improved memory management resulting in increased stability and speed, especially with large games
  • Free agent compensation / arbitration is now more realistic. OOTP correctly assigns FA comp status to all free agent-eligible players who stayed on the team the entire year, and compensation draft picks are only given when the user/AI offered arbitration to this player
  • Draft picks with signability of "impossible" no longer state their demand. You have just one shot to convince the player with a great offer.
  • Added the option to hide player nicknames (in the player personality section of the game setup)
  • Improved the league events editor. When in commish mode, users can edit the dates of existing events and also create events using the internal event types. That way experienced users may fix problems with events caused by league scheduling errors.
  • Improved in-game AI for several situations
  • Improved in-game play-by-play commentary
  • Moved the "Force Start / Position" section in the player strategy screen from the depth chart strategy to the pitching strategy for pitchers and renamed it "Force Role."
  • Re-ordered the items in the team menu to match the order of tabs on the team screen
  • Fixed issues with touchpads on Macs
  • Fixed several bugs and rare crashes

Monsters Lurk In Pillars Of Eternity
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Obsidian Entertainment has released a new informational update for Pillars of Eternity, the upcoming Kickstarter funded fantasy RPG. The post includes details about some of the creatures players may encounter during their journeys, as well as some details about the game development documentary some backers will receive for their Kickstarter contributions.


Blights are lost souls or soul fragments that have bonded with elemental substances. They are often victims of natural disasters (floods, rock slides, forest fires, etc.). They are incoherent, confused, and full of rage, an amorphous cloud that swirls endlessly and with great violence. Within the vortex, dozens of humanoid shapes materialize and vanish from moment to moment. Faces scream in silent agony while hands desperately clutch and claw at their surroundings, as though still trying to escape their tragic fates.

BÓaŵacs, storms that can rip the soul out of a personís body, often create blights. If souls are ripped free from their bodies and caught in the center of the storm, they may become stuck together and bonded with any other elemental substances in the maelstrom. They are pure chaos and confusion, and destroying them is considered by many to be a mercy to the souls trapped within them.

Blights have been the subject of controversial research carried out by the animancers of Eora. On the one hand, attempts at vivisection have led to promising strides in treating patients who, for one reason or another, contain within their bodies two or more complete souls fused together, which has been identified as the root cause of a variety of mental and physiological disorders. On the other, however, some groups lament that there is a lack of transparency on the methods being employed in these experiments, the general concerns being that these might be somehow inhumane or present some broader risk to the surrounding populace. There are also some who accuse animancers of deliberately trying to create blights for study, but the veracity of these claims is difficult to substantiate.
