Welcome to 2K Sports annual baseball game Major League Baseball 2K10. This year's game presents a whole new aspect to the battle of the batter versus the pitcher, when Total Control Pitching meets Total Control Hitting. In Total Control Pitching, you are in control of location of the pitch and the speed of the pitch based on your control and direction. In Total Control Hitting, you are in control of the batter as you can be a pull hitter, opposite field hitter, home run hitter, or go for bunts as you control where the baseball lands. This year's edition puts a greater emphasis on creating your very own player and controlling your player as you work your way as a can't miss prospect in the minors to becoming a Hall of Famer in the big leagues through this year's newest edition My Player. Major League Baseball 2K10 is a step up from last year's edition and should prove to be an enjoyable platinum. Following the road map and guide below should help you to A Job Well Done !
You want to create a profile in the very beginning when the game prompts you the first time you load the game. Your profile is the key to Domination, Production, Swingers, Hurlers, and Learning the Ropes. Plus, you want to select yes to always connect to 2K sports so you can download MLB Today for A Day in the Life and Mid Summer Classic (only available on July 14, 2010).
From the main menu you want to go to My Player and create your player you will use to accomplish all the My Player trophies: A Whole New You, This is Why I'm Here, The Goal, The Star, The Start, The Truth, The Call, The Top, and The Hall. You can play on custom sliders to make getting skill points easier as skill points are used to improve your players overall abilities. In the games you play, the game will give you a goal to accomplish when you come up to bat or are on base. Being successful in goals will give you key skill points to use on your player. If you get a 10+ game hitting streak, then your goal points will be doubled and if you play in a "Key Game" then all "Key Game" goals are doubled. There will be many games you need to play called "Key Games," which are if you're in a MVP race with a group of players, chance at improving your shot at winning your division, wild card race, key game against your rival, key game against you inter-league rival, and playing against a top player at your position.
I suggest you play your first two seasons to increase your overall abilities with only a little bit of simming. In games you sim, you earn less skill points and games you play you can earn a multitude of skill points. If you sim, there are times when the game will stop simming, and make you play a clutch moment, and a clutch moment is where you have a goal such as hit a walk off hit.
Throughout your My Player career you will need to meet 2 or more team goals, 5 or more season goals, and 5 or more career goals. Then once you have meet these goals, you go to career decisions and retire and you will enter the Hall of Fame. This will take you at least 5-6 seasons. Expect all My Player trophies to be very time consuming.
From the main menu you want to go to management>rosters and select a team you want to max out the batters and starting five pitchers to use in one year of franchise mode. Once you have made your edits, go from the main menu -> game modes and select franchise. Select your maxed out team and set up no trades between CPU teams, and set all playoff games to a best of 1. Before you skip or play any spring training games, go to records and hit to clear all records to get Remember Me. Then sim all of spring training and play the first game of your franchise and win to get One and 0. Make sure you play at least 20 games in your franchise to unlock franchise trophies, then you can sim the rest of the season and post-season. With your maxed team you should easily make the playoffs nabbing you Booked a Ticket, and then win the World Series to unlock What's Your Ring Size?
Time for some online play. You can boost the online trophies or not it is up to you. Though the great thing about online play is that most if not all trophies all are able to be accomplished in online play. To play online go to Play Now -> Ranked. The online service will search for you and match you up with another player, if you want to boost with a partner then you two need to sync together in hopes you are matched up with one another. Play your first game as the Washington Nationals in a completed game to get Upset Alert, which mean all 9 innings were played, then play nine more games with nine different teams to get The Spice of Life. Also at some point you want to win three games in a row which will get you Count Itand The Road to Greatness. If at any time you beat the New York Yankees, then you will get Team to Beat.
EpidemiK you will either get by playing someone who has played a 2K developer or you actually played a 2K developer in a completed online game and you get this trophy whether you win or lose. Finally, join an online league and win one online league game to gain My Fellow Man.
Now it is clean up time and you can go after any trophies you have left. If you need certain trophies like Production, then create a maxed ratings team and a team with minimal ratings to play with in Play Now mode in a quick game.
