It almost seems like the Guardians wanted things to fall into place the way they did. Or maybe I’m just looking to much into things. As you can plainly read in the title, this time out of the ...

Alongside the original IBM PC and the Apple II, the Commodore 64 is perhaps one of the most classic computers of all time.

As evidenced by my review of SHMUSICUP, I’m a big fan of rhythm games or games that can incorporate rhythm elements.
