If you were one of those who enjoyed having a laugh at Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s facial glitches, these for MLB: The Show 17 might be right up your alley.

Watch live video from SonySanDiegoStudio on

In the latest livestream for MLB: The Show 17, the team at Sony San Diego Studio provided a look at player model improvements, create-a-player revamp, and Pave Your Path (PYP).

Things got really interesting when the developers starting demonstrating the player customization options, as you will see for yourself (thanks, AGD).

The discussion starts around the 18:25 mark, and it is indeed a bit freaky. Luckily, the issue has been fixed, so you won’t have to worry about your Baseball player having a head that looks like fleshy, corrugated cardboard or the face of a mangy Tribble.

Alternatively, you can just look at the horrifying image below, courtesy of Steve Noah.
