Dead Rising: Watchtower Review (Film)

Hotline Miami 2

I Liked Hurting People One thing that made the first Hotline Miami so fun was that it was an exciting action game the likes of which I had never been done before. I’d walk into a level, put on a mask, and tear the guards to shreds with a variety ...
