PostSubject: Satoru Iwata has passed away   Sun Jul 12, 2015 8:17 pm

The CEO of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, died the other day.

Official press release: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2015/150713e.pdf



This man has been one of the biggest people in the gaming industry. Having started with Balloon Fight back in the NES era, his accomplishments include but are most certainly not limited to rebuilding EarthBound from scratch, shrinking Johto in Pokemon Gold and Silver down enough to fit Kanto and more in after Game Freak ran out of cartridge space, and being as much a public face of the company as Miyamoto or Reggie via the Nintendo Directs. This man has headed Nintendo through its best and its worst, and the loss of him is a loss for the industry as a whole.

there is a pile of used tissues on my desk i can't stop crying Sad

It's a big loss to the video game industry but nothing by any means to cry about. More to life than that..
