Resonance: The Abyss

One of my all-time favorite video game series has always been Rayman.  The games are seriously some of the most creative and unique out there, from the lush and intricately detailed locations, bizarre creatures, and amazing soundtrack.  I have actually already discussed the series’ soundtrack twice before (you can find the links at the bottom…

Unforgettable: 8-Bit Grannies World Tour
