New Leaf's theme music played by an orchestra
You can skip to 01:20 to hear the song played by an ensemble from the Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert tour — God, when those strings come in, right? I only wish it was longer.
Nintendo UK has put up a lot of great New Leaf videos that I’ve been meaning to post. If you missed its series of interviews with series producer Katsuya Eguchi, make sure to watch these videos on the origins of Animal Crossing, Mr. Resetti getting laid off, and why furniture appear as leaves in the game. I could read or listen to the game’s developers talk about their inspirations and design decisions for hours.
1up Show Theme Orchestra

♫ Wanna stay home and play all my video games ♫
More than a few of us — peeps that came up in the game blogging scene during the mid-to-late aughties — modeled our voices, our steez if you will, after the cats putting in work at 1UP and its trendsetting shows.
Even as layoffs and game companies picked its staff clean, Jeremy Parish and his skeleton crew managed to make great things with barebones resources. Plus, they called Tiny Cartridge one of the 101 Best Video Game Sites, and invited JC to take part in an episode of Retronauts!
So, it’s awful to hear that Ziff Davis/1UP is shutting down 1UP and laying off most of its team. :o( I’ll be spending the rest of this afternoon listening to these old 1UP Show theme arrangements I downloaded years ago and kept for some reason.
