The shooting makes a huge difference; the game fell short of Fallout 3 for me in the end, though I can't define quite why.
I am still playing (read: totally obsessed by) OOTP13
, and have just been sacked as the Padres GM after 5 seasons:
The good news is that my second team in baseball, the A's, have offered me a job, because my record is 'good' (one game over .500). So looks like I'll be heading up there, though they have an even smaller payroll than the Padres.
My biggest problem with the Padres was locating players who could hit consistently. Don't know how I'll solve that problem.
