About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Major League Baseball 2K5' (PS2/Xbox) Slugs into Stores

Live fastballs, suicide squeezes, grass-staining dives, seventh-inning stretches, walk-off homeruns, peanuts and hotdogs… these are just some of the things that make the sport of baseball America’s favorite pastime. The victory of a baseball game can depend on the walk-off homerun in the ninth inning or a simple second base steal.

"Major League Baseball 2K5 is all new this year," said Greg Thomas, president of Visual Concepts, developers of the 2K5 sports series. "It truly pays homage to the great game of baseball, offering consumers the most complete and realistic major league baseball video game available. From the revolutionary On Command Baserunning to all of the online capabilities, consumers will be amazed by the amount of features in the game that intensify their overall experience."

Players will experience unprecedented control with the debut of On Command Baserunning, including active picture-in-picture baserunning, and new gameplay features with Maximum Sliding and the groundbreaking Baseburner Mode. Gamers can dominate the basepaths by advancing runners into scoring position, executing hit and run tactics, and score the game-winning run with dramatic squeeze plays -- all with unparalleled control.

Major League Baseball 2K5 introduces K Zone Pitching, a new system that delivers the most realistic pitching control in a baseball video game. This new feature allows players to target their pitches precisely using a simple interactive crosshair interface. Players are challenged as pressure situations can determine how accurately and well they will throw.

Available on the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox, Major League Baseball 2K5 offers gamers complete online play and online leagues. The online capabilities give gamers the ability to create, manage and compete in their own customized leagues, or simply play against other online gamers in a quick one-on-one game.
