Was browsing the net, first site I go check relating to gaming is kotaku and this pop up earlier in the day.

Rather shocking, despite I heard about his health issues as of late. :'( Wonder how Nintendo will be from now on. It is very rare that CEOs or anyone at the pinnacle of management positions are truly gamers.

/me marathon plays games on his New 3DS and drinking alcohol.

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

There is an kotaku article that at Nintendo HQ, a rainbow was visible, indicating that he went to the rainbow road. :'(
