Rest in Peace Mr. Satoru Iwata-san.

RIP Mr. Iwata-san

We live in the world where lots of CEO’s are scumbags who only care about a bottom line and shareholders’ accounts. Mr. Iwata was not one of those people.

When I saw the news I was deeply saddened, as if a member of my own family passed away. I will pray for you and your family.

When people say that our thoughts are with “them” to me it’s meaningless. Thoughts alone do nothing. Thinking about someone is not enough. But prayers? They have a meaning and purpose.

Mr. Iwata, you will be greatly missed by many.

Merchandising products can be a great source of Nintendo-related artwork. I believe this one comes from Toys R Us.

While at it, why not checking out my own mock-up of Super Scope packaging?

Here’s another beautiful piece of original artwork from Kickle Cubicle by IREM corporation. You don’t get to see this kind of artwork too often. Who uses airbrushes anymore? Well, I’d love to see more.

Nintendo PlayStation CD-ROM has been found!

You should know it by now. The entire gaming world is abuzz as history is in the making. Some people think it’s fake, but I’m keeping my hopes up! If you want to be part of history or an elaborate hoax you should read this, this and watch this:

Meanwhile, I’m gonna go & get my diaper changed! Yes, I’m shitting my pants, that’s how excited I am right now!

RBFS. Really Big Fcunikg Scan!

Behold! 14 megs! 3504×4745! 300 dpi! It’s about time I did an actual scan.

The truth of the matter is that scanning anything larger than US Letter size involves a large format flatbed scanner and it’s a major pain. I have this old Mustek A3 USB scanner, which is a monster of a device and doesn’t always work on Win 7 64-bit because it wasn’t designed to do so. Anyways, I’ve spent Last two days tinkering with my PC, cleaning the registry and uninstalling anything Mustek-related. Finally, I got it working!

This poster was included with Contra III The Alien Worlds, a Super Nintendo game. Poster can be downloaded here. Enjoy!
