"In my heart, I am a gamer."
Obviously a sad day for his loved ones..RIP.
..But on a professional level, he was a disaster for Nintendo, choosing to focus on gimmick laden, under powered, over priced hardware that has pushed Nintendo to the margins of the videogame business, to the point of irrelevance, only of importance to the rabid Nintendo fanboy obsessives.
Hopefully a new chairman will change that and introduce new hardware worthy of Nintendo.
"Iwata halped with the development"
"Game Boy platform into the best-welling Nintendo DS"
Caffeine enema for Mr. Halfacree... of course, if you're looking for a proofreader, I'll be more than happy to help...
It's not that Gareth needs a proof-reader, it's difficult to type when you are crying
I agree with Hustler though - as important as Iwata was to Nintendo (and nobody can doubt what a massive success the DS has been), it's going to take a massive effort to bring Nintendo back into the home gaming competition, especially with the massive lead that Microsoft and Sony have over Nintendo.
RIP Iwata-san, :'(
The joys of writing a piece with lots of non-dictionary words in it: your eyes skim over the red squiggles after a while. (Not helped (or halped) by the fact that "welling" is apparently a valid, correctly-spelled word.) Fixed, ta!
I welling up in sympathy
Sad news. He had a hand in a heck of a lot of joy.
And now I feel dumb. My brain never even went there, despite having used "welling up" numerous times myself; it was too busy guessing at something to do with wells in t'ground. Tch!
