For those asking for game control on the Gamepad, it's not that simple. Certainly not when games offer multiplayer, or no classic controller support, or odd configurations like Monster Hunter 3 allowing you to use the Wii Remote connected to the Classic Controller. There are too many game-specific configurations to allow for a one-Gamepad-controls-all solution.

This is very true, and something that a lot of people overlook.

All I want is to be able to use it for games that support the classic controller. It's not like I'm asking for world peace, I just want to play Xenoblade Chronicles with a controller that feels comfortable in my manly hands.

Fair enough. I want that too. But it just seems like people are thinking that making all the games work with the gamepad out of the gate is a trivial thing. If it was that simple, it would've been done.

You all should read the book Game Over: Press Start to Continue by David Sheff. Provides a great insight into how Yamauchi's mind worked, as well as why he was feared/respected by everyone.

Thanks for the childhood memories, and for helping me to forge my path in life. I wish I could have met you so that I could be terrified by your presence, like so many others have experienced working under you. Nobody will ever match what you have done for the industry, and nobody will have the balls that you had to become as successful as you did. That "take no shit from anyone" attitude commanded respect. RIP.

Not only did he save video games, he also saved baseball for Seattle. That was his way of giving back to the city since Nintendo of America was established there.

1949 until 2002

Whoa. He must have made his way into the company as CEO early. Is my math wrong or did he become CEO at 21?

His first and only role at Nintendo was president and CEO. So yeah, you're correct.

Alright, so now that the game is released, I'll post an IRC channel where people can meet up to play some matches:

  1. Got to http://webchat.quakenet.org
  2. The channel is: #GB_Divekick

I heavily suggest people go there when the tournament starts to organize matches.

This should be on the Challonge page and on the first page here so people don't miss it.

Thanks for the coverage, Patrick! I didn't think you guys would actually make a story out of it.

I hope whoever buys just lets Atus keep doing their own thing and doesnt hinder them

This is what I'm hoping for the most.
