After mentioning the latest in the Prof. Sakamoto Insert series of chiptune albums, I thought I'd go back and mention INSERT Vol.2 - SOLAR SOLDIER. This album is based exclusively on shmups and that is great.
I'm only just discovering Prof. Sakamoto, an amazing chiptune artist out of Japan. He recently released the third in his fictional game soundtrack series. This time, Sakamoto's fictional game company, Sakabot, fights for honor with a sidescrolling ninja action game.
