The Purge: Anarchy Review

The Purge Anarchy

The Purge (2013) starring Ethan Hawke was one of my big disappointments. I thought the premise (all crime being legal for one night) was bloody brilliant, and had mucho potential for social commentary, plus a ton of groovy action in the vein of Escape from New York.

RBI Baseball 17

I've reviewed each of the R.B.I. games since MLB brought the series back in 2014. At this point, I'm not sure a review is necessary anymore. I feel like I should just copy and paste what I wrote last year, because it's the same game with an updated roster. There's no new modes and no … Continue reading R.B.I. Baseball ’17 Review
