Nintendo World - 3DS Summit in Japan

   To say that I'm excited about the 3DS, Nintendo's successor to perhaps my favorite gaming device, would be an understatement. So in that vain, I have been gorging on the Ustream coming out of Japan. There's a lot of neat stuff, including what appears to be face recognition Mii Creation.

   Details on the 3DS are all well and fine. You'll probably read more comprehensive takes on them all over the net, but that's not what I wanted to talk to you about. Video game music is super important to me, and the live stream of Nintendo's event has presented with me a unique experience that I needed to share with you.

   Nintendo hired a professional band to perform some video game music on stage, and the results are amazing. I've found a Youtube video so you wouldn't have to navigate Japanese text to find the video. I know you're all fluent in multiple languages, including those of the East, but I thought I would save you a few page clicks all the same. I love you that much.

    Fucking brilliant. What was your favorite song out of there? I'm quite partial to the Donkey Kong Country and Animal Crossing pieces myself. But it was all good. I would buy this album twice. Thanks for taking time out of your weekend to spend with me. I look forward to presenting some discussion about level creation in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem soon, so stay tuned.

-Make it a good one.
