Smash Hit Combo – In Game: A Video Breakdown
Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A
Do you like video games? Smash Hit Combo does. You know how I can tell? I can tell because seemingly everything the band has done has been about or relating to or referring to video games. That’s cool, though. I like gimmicks and video games are a billion-dollar industry right now. There are people whose full-time jobs is to play video games on the internet. You might as well try to put out some video game-centric songs in hoping it find the right audience. I’m just not sure doing it with a rapcore band is the way to go.
