Opinion: My Favorite Super Moves in Video Games – Super Smash Bros.

Music: 52 Women VGM Composers You Should Know About – Manami Matsumae

Manami Matsumae Our last Capcom composer for the month of March (in case you hadn’t noticed a theme) is Manami Matsumae, who was one of Capcom’s earliest composers for the NES and Famicom, with her first full project for the company being the now iconic Mega Man.

Music: Celebrating More Amazing Women Composers

A couple weeks back I posted five compositions from women I love enough to put on my Top 100 list. This week I’d like to include more tracks from women that haven’t broke into my absolute favorites, but are fine musical numbers in their own right. Enjoy!
