Shoutout: Web Design – Nicalis

Or emotional, heartwrenching, tear-inducing. But no one gave any feedback. Even when I asked in person. So I thought very meta about this response. Nobody responded with ideas. Therefore, could this mean (dons tin foil hat) the people of the Huesteus blog want 10 songs from games nobody wanted?? Well I decided to take it one level further. Here are 10 songs from 10 DIFFERENT games from a CONSOLE nobody asked for – the WiiU.
