Madman genius converts hundreds of classic Gamecube and Wii screens into tearfully beautiful 3D, gives 3DS new purpose

Hoe. Lee. Crap. This is one of the most spellbinding things I've seen in ages. If you ever need a justification for the worth of homebrew fan ingenuity, this is it. If you're feeling suicidal and need to see something beautiful enough to give you a reason to go on living, this is it.

A rather spectacular lunatic by the name of Eighteen has taken literally hundreds of screens from the prettiest Wii and Gamecube games around and converted them to 3D. His purpose? Puttingthem on a .rar file that you can download, extract the contents of, and stuff your lucky, lucky 3DS SD card to the gills with. The screens are easily viewable with the 3DS camera's photo viewer, and yikes are they a stunning taste of what's to come on Nintendo's sparkly little handheld. Forget the crap launch-window game blues. Myself and Justin have just been looking atthe Super Mario Galaxy screens and gurgling about the potential of the recently announced Super Mario 3DS game.

We still weep.

Other games involved in this experiment to determine the wonderment threshold of the human mind? How about F-Zero GX in 3D? Resident Evil 4? Smash Bros? Tatsunoko vs. Capcom? Muramasa? The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker? You're salivating now, aren't you? And there are stacks more than that. Just click here, download the folder, extract the screens, and stick them on your SD. We'll see you in a few days when you've stopped sobbing.

Thanks,Aussie Nintendo. You've made by damn day.

These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
