About Kevin Plumtree

Kevin, a Los Angeles area native, has enjoyed gaming as long as he can remember. Lately, he has taken great interest in the narrative aspect of gaming as well as player agency. This is probably because all the literature he had to read during his M.A. program conditioned him to think that way. Nevertheless, he enjoys almost all types of games, especially shooters, strategy, and simulation.

R.B.I. Baseball 14 sets out knowing it must strike a balance between the classic controls, gameplay and nuance of the original, while also being a fun, accessible game for those baseball fans new to the series.
