Favorite Nintendo Music: Song of Storms

When I tried to decide on my favorite Nintendo song, I came up with a long list of examples spanning various decades and countless games.  There are, in fact, dozens and dozens of songs from Nintendo that I really enjoy, leading me to realize that I might need to look at things from a different…

Earlier this week, I wasted no time in picking up a game I’d been waiting for since I heard about it during E3 last year. All the pre-release media looked good and all the preview coverage I’d read sounded very promising. I was certain that Rage 2 was going to be an excellent game, and…
