Activision Steps to the Plate with 'Little League® World Series 2008' for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Apr 23, 2008: Activision, Inc. announced today the upcoming release of Little League® World Series 2008 for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™. Players will have the ability to bat, pitch and field using intuitive controls developed exclusively for Nintendo's platforms. Little League World Series is the perfect game to play with your friends and family. The game hits shelves August 5, 2008.

"Little League baseball fans, players and families simply haven't had a videogame made just for them, so our goal is to fill this niche," said Dave Oxford, Activision Publishing. "Creating this game with the Little League organization has been a pleasure and we look forward to paying homage to the three million Little League players around the world today."

Little League World Series is the first officially licensed Little League video game to hit next-generation consoles. Bat, pitch and field your way from local sandlot slugger to Little League World Series Champion. Featuring eight U.S. and eight international teams, extraordinarily deep character customization, World Series Mode, and various skill based challenges, Little League World Series offers an exciting, authentic baseball experience. Motion-sensing controls on Wii make it accessible for Little League players and parents, while the DS version gives players the freedom to get on the diamond anywhere.

"Activision has captured the essence of what makes Little League so wonderful for players and spectators alike," Jud Rogers, Sr. Marketing Executive, Little League International. "We look forward to working with them in the upcoming months to help polish the game and bring it to Little Leaguers and fans."

I've got the option in my profile.  It appeared after I got six points, but was unclickable, saying "four more points necessary."  After the seventh, it said that I had ban-protections.  Now I'm only two away from buying a ban, so I'm trying to prepare.

Alright, so on my profile, it's saying that I can "Buy a Ban" for ten points, and a new option "Write Guest Editorial" has appeared for 25.  What should I go for?

Bans require less effort

And ban Svevan, that'll kill the forums for a week

So it turns out getting 9 points gives you access to the forum's filter.  I had fun.

Somehow I got another point by being drunk...So much for getting points for behaving in an orderly fashion... =|

that Baby guyFebruary 20, 2008

Alright, I've earned ten.  Who's up to leave the forums for three days?

Now do you cash your points in to ban someone...or is it just a one time bonus, and continue moving up in score? 

I think you should see what other options come available. 

Maybe after 25 points you can become a moderator or something.

I posted the list I can see in another thread, I think one about Pale by Svevan or something like that.  At 25, you can cash them in for a guest editorial on the main site.  When I reached 10, I received a notice saying that I could elect to ban a member once as a bonus, but all the later times would cost ten points.  I'm not sure if the points disappear from my profile or if it keeps track of my spent points separately.  I plan on waiting until I can get the forum category to spend them, though.
