I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Coming off a stellar year, 989 Sports' popular baseball franchise has made the necessary off-season moves to provide gamers with the most authentic baseball simulation to date. Set for a spring release, MLB 2006 features numerous gameplay enhancements, such as the a ll-new Branch Point Technology™ (BPT), which provides seamless fielding transitions and smooth base running; an a ll-new Fielding Zone that brings together a players attributes with the a gamer's skill level in order to make the play; an all-new Pitcher Confidence Marker, which helps determine a gamer's ability to hit spots in the strike zone; a deeper Franchise Mode; and an all-new Career Mode. With returning gameplay favorites, including EyeToy™ functionality; online playability through 989SportsOnline.com; and Voice Recognition, MLB 2006 promises to provide gamers with a true-to-life experience from the diamond.

•  All-New Branch Point Technology™ (BPT) – Only BPT gives gamers the ability to field the ball and pre-load a throw with seamless fielding transitions impacted by footwork and momentum. This new technology is also used for base running allowing smooth and fluid transitions from a run or slide.

•  All-New Pitcher Confidence MLB 2006 brings baseball fans the ultimate duel with a revised pitcher/batter interface b y binding player rating attributes with a gamer's skill. While easy to pick up and play, yet difficult to master, MLB 2006 is a game within the game. Additionally, Pitcher Confidence plays a role in a gamer's ability to hit spots in the strike zone, while frequency of mistakes will impact the confidence level of a gamer's hurler, making it more difficult to hit paint the corners.

•  All-New Fielding Zone Marker – With an all-new fielding interface that brings the player attributes together with the user's skill level, players will really need to make the play. In the past games, 90% of outfield fly balls were merely a "can o' corn" – not anymore. With the all-new Fielding Zone Marker, the fielder's fielding attribute rating will determine the size of the zone that surrounds the ball and it's eventual landing location. With highly ranked fielders, the ball marker will be displayed sooner and smaller making it easier to judge fly balls.

•  All-New Progressive Audio – Feel the raw emotion and tremendous intensity of playing in "the show" as MLB 2006 takes gamers into the ballgame with a broadcast presentation that brings together on-screen displays, dugout scenes, audio, animation, and sound to provide the most authentic baseball simulation on PlayStation 2. Featuring a completely unique experience in every game, Progressive Audio adapts and reacts to real-time actions and situations.

•  MLB Authenticity MLB 2006 presents gamers with f iner details and nuances that make the game – America 's Pastime. Gamers can drag bunts along with w ild pitches, broken bats, check swings and more.

•  AAA / AA Minor Teams & Stadiums MLB 2006 features 60 teams and 5 stadiums from the Minors.

•  Old-Time Players & Stadiums – Unlock and play with Silver Era and Golden Era players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, then play in old-time stadiums like Forbes and Polo Grounds.
