🎮 Where's My Controller?
- Picked up Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, and Onimusha Warlords on the Nintendo Switch over the Christmas.
- Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams remains my favourite Onimusha.
🎵 Turn it up to 11!
- Listen to Soki's glorious theme from Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams. God this guitar solo still sends shivers down my spine. They really don't make Game Themes like these any more. (Link)
