In Other News – 13 July 2015

1 min read


I never knew Nintendo’s big boss. Not personally at least. What I did know however, was that this was the kind of boss that I wanted to be one day. A hands on man with a humble attitude. A true leader, in every sense of the word. Through the good and the bad, Iwata was there to shepherd Nintendo around.

And you know how much respect I have for that guy? So much, that I haven’t made a single joke about his passing. That’s just how damn much I respected him. And really, that’s all I have to say. RIP Iwata-San.

  1. He should have kept a 1-up mushroom near him…. too soon? Mister Iwata-san was a idol to many gamers, he saw our views in gaming since he was a gamer himself and made sure to give what we wanted. A man not touched by the corporate world.

    The dude was good at what he did. Can’t deny it. I’m sure those who did know him must be devasted. Especially if he was at home the same he was to the public.

            I wish I could be done sleeping in 6 hours… I always end up 10+ hours and then I’m ready for the world again
