Okay, by now anyone who cares I’m sure is reading all about the new Nintendo Revolution console on countless other sites reporting live. So why is it here on CDM? Simple: Nintendo has made the highly un-anticipated decision of releasing its back-catalog of games available for the new Revolution, back to N64, SNES, and original NES systems, via download. (People are excited about something about the Revolution: Nintendo‘s site is getting completely hammered as I write this.) We have until next year to wait for the system, but what this means is, aside from all our retro game soundtrack favorites suddenly becoming current again, you could see some of the original games Nintendo made for music creation, like the Mario Paint composition tool. (see review)

Is it sick to make music with Logic, Max/MSP Jitter, and an SNES game? Yes, it is. Will I be covering this anyway, if Nintendo re-releases Mario Paint? Yes, I will. Did you forget I was insane?
