oh my god, this is the first time I’ve heard the music of New Leaf. I am filled with such hope that this will be a great game. It’s already so much better than Wild World’s soundtrack. I’m in love. I’m more excited for this game than I ever have been.
The music of this game was easily the most anticipated aspect of it for me. To hear this one hour alone, I’m faithful that it will be a proper return to form. Just the fact that the instrumentation is varied and not just the two same instruments repeated as Wild World’s was, it just fills me with so much hope and assurance. This even feels more emotional and heartfelt than some of the songs in the original game.
I owe Kazumi Totaka so much, for me even wanting to be a games composer to begin with. I feel like the proper way to consume this soundtrack would be to wait until I have the game in my hands and I’m playing for the first time, absorbing every aspect of it, and having the music accentuate the emotions I’m feeling, as a great game soundtrack is supposed to. I don’t know if I can wait that long. But if I can manage to wait, I have the utmost faith that I’ll be blown away. But for now, 12 AM is heavenly, and the best sign of a wonderful soundtrack that will inspire and teach me, and stick with me for life.
There’s something about Animal Crossing that’s really good about capturing moods and ideas in their musical bits. And this little remix gives it a little more oomph, with the kinda staggered chords and percussion that help give a more wintery theme to this piece. That and the occasional vocal riff really makes this one for me.
I painted my room awhile ago, so had a bunch of these paint swatches. A friend asked if I was going to write insightful/emotional words on them (like those posts going around tumbos). I told her I’d do better than that.
Originally it was gonna be butt jokes:
Animal Crossing fish puns are much better though. #reeltalk
I think you can tell I’m a bit drunk in this. I’m a bit more energetic? (& Ben said I’m a bit slurry) idk.
Alsooooo, I didn’t mention because I was drunk? so I guess my thought process was everywhere, but the point of Super Metroid and having happy memories, that’s inspirational because it’s the reason why I wanted to go into game development. I wanted to help make games, because video games were the happiest moments in my life growing up! It was one of the rare times my family would get together and be happy you know? or same with friends. I get super happy playing games with friends. Like, videogames are entertainment, but I feel there’s more to them. I wanted to be part of making something that could possibly invoke the same feeling in others, by helping them possibly create as fond memories, or just feeling something. So, that’s why that inspired me as well. (｡╯ᴗ╰)〜
Rebluggin this from Grace because her words are really sweet and you should read ‘em.
