Good morning, TAY. It’s me your long forgotten uncle who went on a business trip for a couple of years and never called to report in.

I’ve stuck far from home (at my 2nd home) for the past couple of months. Which means I haven’t played a lot of games since most of my consoles are sitting some thousand of miles away collecting dust. Of all the games that I’ve been wanting to play, there’s one that I’ve been craving for the most.

Maybe it’s the cute art style by Ko Takeushi or the music by Tsunku, or maybe I just like rhythm games with made up rules a lot, the fact is... I can’t wait to go back home and fire up my DS and Wii to finally play and listen to some of my favorite games.

  • Have you heard any new songs, TAY?

Today’s songs are not cut from the same kind of cloth:
