Baseball Mogul 2020 Review – The ‘Other’ Baseball Simulation

With all the attention that other game gets (hint: it’s an acronym), it’s easy to forget there are other sports sims out there; specifically, in the realm of baseball. Let’s be honest, with the Coronavirus pandemic keeping most of us home more than usual, we need as many entertainment options as possible to keep busy until life gets back to normal (whatever “normal” is). I first tried my hand at B...[Read More]

Review – How do you improve on perfection? OOTP 18 found a way.

One of the hardest things I do every year is write a review for the latest edition of OOTP. I’ve written on a number of occasions that they just keep improving on what was already perfection, and that’s again the case with this year’s edition (OOTP 18), which is absolutely incredible after I took a year-long hiatus from writing reviews. To that end, it has to be even more difficult creating a game...[Read More]
