Prof.Sakamoto

Posted on August 17th, 2016 by Hitstun

Prof.Sakamoto makes soundtracks to imaginary NES games. He’s nailed the sound of a classic RPG, a space shooter, and couple days ago, a ninja action game. I hope someday he’ll follow in Jake Kaufman’s footsteps and work on an actual game. Source: Bandcamp via the same epic Spotify Discover Weekly playlist last November that introduced […]

I just got on the train headed for another PAX East! 70,000 gamers get together in Boston every year to play games, and you can find competition in any game there is. Last year, I took second place in the tournaments for Tetris DS and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, and I’ve been training to […]

FX4 plays like an adventure movie soundtrack with orchestral stylings and guitar riffs, but in authentic NES sound. If you can’t see the Bandcamp player, there’s a YouTube player below that should work for everyone, even […]
