Upgrade Your Nintendo 3DS’s Sound. [SLYT]
"Of the variety of things one might find to complain about in regards to the Nintendo 3DS, the sound doesn’t immediately come to mind. It’s not great sound, mind, but there are a litany of things that are more obvious. Thanks to one intrepid inventor, however, you are now just a series of tubes, clips and metal funnels away from awesome sound. Now, in order to figure out the exact combination of these things you’ll need to translate the instructions from Japanese." [Via].

Do you enjoy the work of independent musicians? Do you like Capcom's Mega Man X series of video games

So. While hunting for a live performance
of a song
from the Beatmania IIDX
series, a totally sweet primarily-piano piece known for its near-impossibility to play as a video game, much less on real instruments, I stumbled upon this incredible version,
performed by the phenomenal TeppeikunViolin
and his lovely pianist assistant.
Of course, it turns out that beyond just having RIDICULOUS chops on the violin, he's also a nerd in the best sense. Not only has he done a great violin cover
of the internet sensation "Bad Apple!!"
, he's also done a cover of the music from the original Legend of Zelda
that must be seen, a cover of Super Mario Bros.
that makes subtle reference in the background, as any good Japanese Nintendo fan should, to "Kintamario,"
and a little something he calls "Tetris being played on a Game Boy with a dying battery"
that absolutely must be seen to be believed.

- The complete soundtrack to Super Mario World, covered by one man using dozens of instruments. Roughly in game order, faithful to the originals, with some bizarre artistic license thrown around. A private hobby made public. Dedicated to Koji Kondo.

is a site that hosts MP3s made by video game afficionados who have remixed the tunes from their favorite video games, old and new alike. Check out the releases page
and try out a few songs. You can also search
for songs by a particular game system, genre, specific game, etc. (Unfortunately, search seems broken for me right now, but it usually works!)
The users generally provide extensive reviews that will help you sort out the great from the mediocre before downloading.

Do you miss the music from your old NES games?
Well if you do, be sure to check out the minibosses. They're a band that only plays the songs to classic video games from the Nintendo Entertainment System. Great stuff. I particularly enjoyed the Wizards & Warriors track amusing, since I was addicted to that game when I was younger. Also, am I the only one who thinks there should be a new console system DEDICATED to only 2D games? 3D games are neat 'n all, but I don't think enough good 2D games are being made anymore. The Gameboy Advance
is probably the only system doing that sort of thing right now, but it's just a portable.
