Stuart Dredge Gaming

kurtcobain.jpgDid Kurt Cobain play computer games? History remains strangely silent on the issue. It’s hard to say whether he’d approve of Nirvana tracks being licensed out for use in musical rhythm games then. Still, that’s what’s happened, with news of two separate games that’ll allow fans to play along with Nirvana classics.
