Here we are at the start of an all-new work week. Let's kick it off in style with some VGMs. This week we start our countdown to Christmas and 500 VGM vids! This week we have LittleBigPlanet, Professor Layton, Pikmin, Pokemon, and Animal Crossing.
v451. LittleBigPlanet - Dancing Drums
Let's countdown to 500 videos in style! It's a psychedelic Arabian song from LittleBigPlanet. The PSP version, a completely new game with the same name, has recently been released, so I felt it was a perfect time to bring out another LBP track. Are you thinking about picking the PSP game up?
v452. Animal Crossing: City Folk - 3 PM
City Folk may not have set the world on fire with change, but it did offer some new concepts to the franchise: a brand new city, online play with voice chat, and a host of new, free DLC. The photos taken here are from my town, Central. The road system had just been established at the time. I dread returning to the town to see all those weeds!
v453. Pokemon Rumble - Fiery Furnace Battle
Pokemon Rumble is an action-RPG dungeon crawler where you command one Pokemon through dungeons infested with other Pokemon. There's only six levels, but the Pokemon available in each dungeon change as you progress through the ranks. This is the battle theme of the Fiery Furnace level. It's without a doubt my favorite theme of this game.
v454. Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box - The History of the Village
Whether you know it as Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box or Professor Layton and Pandora's Box, the Professor Layton series is known for its devilish brain busters and charming set of characters. This game is no exception. The following song is a favorite of mine from the series. I love the imitation of the two notes near the middle of the first and second playthroughs.
v455. Pikmin - The Forest of Hope
Pikmin was a near-launch title for the Gamecube and later became one of the premier launch titles for the New Play Control! Wii line of remade Gamecube games with Wii controls. The song I've selected for this series comes from the eponymous Forest of Hope. It's a very quiet, serene piece of music with twinkles here and there. It's a perfect tune to relax to.
Stay tuned for next week as I have a flurry of Christmas-sounding songs to share... and Kuja's Theme. Go figure.
