Angry Birds Chrome (PC)

Admitting to fellow gamers that you play (much less enjoy playing) Angry Birds is similar to letting your old headbanging friends from high school know that you actually enjoyed Metallica’s self-titled “Black” album. The last Metallica album fans are officially allowed to like is 1988’s bassless “…And Justice For All.” Period. Likewise, no retro or […]
