Why Hasn’t This Been Made Yet?

The genre of rhythm video games seems to have been dwindling in recent years. Guitar Hero and Rock Band, once a pair of mighty 3rd party series, faded into obscurity, only to get revival editions that not many people seemed to play, and even recycled songs that had already been featured in the series. I don’t think these series deserve to be left in the dust, however, but a little bit of innovation would help both series bounce back.

But a favorite album is something you can always return to – something to serve as an intermission between your varying musical preferences. And, for me, that album is Murmur by R.E.M.

But they’ll always be my team, and baseball will always remain my sport of choice, even if I have to suffer until the Reds become good again. Is that possible next year? Probably not, but I figured I’d go ahead and predict the final standings for the upcoming MLB season.

So, let’s get to it!
