Nobuooo 2.09 update

It's a new month, and with that it seems it is time for another update from Jeriaska for Nobuooo.com, a Digg style website for news in the VGM and VG inspired music community. This months update focuses on the album Mega Ran 9 through Random's (AKA Mega Ran) own words.

Mega Ran goes over how the album became a reality and how each song came together. Definitely a good show for any fan of Random. Watch the video below and be sure to vote for the news at nobuooo.com/item/5348

Game Set Watch interview with Hiroyuki Iwatsuki

Recently Jeriaska of nobuooo.com wrote a lengthy and in depth interview with Hiroyuki Iwatsuki for Game Set Watch. Read the interview and learn about a very interesting game composer who has created music on a variety of titles from the NES and Gameboy all the way to the Xbox 360. He has also done many cult classic game titles like Wild Guns and Pocky and Rocky to Chaos World and Ninja Warriors. Definitely a good read to learn about an often overlooked figure in game music.
