Today is a sad day for geeks and gamers. Let’s all remember Hiroshi Yamauchi.
Hiroshi Yamauchi has been the third president of Nintendo, stepping in during 1949 to succeed his grandfather.

Of course, Nintendo wasn’t a video game company at the time. They were a game company. As in, cards. Hanafuda cards. During his reign, the small unknown card company evolved into one of the biggest electronic entertainment corporation. Lots of people will remember him, or what he did, for that sole purpose.

This thing is Awesome! Can play PSP, Vita, PS1, perhaps even PS3! All on your TV with your PS3 controller. A-WE-SOME.

Wha?

Maybe we need to contact Sony Computer Entertainment and ask what’s on their mind for Europe and America…

 

Leiji Matsumoto has a wide anime universe that includes Galaxy Express 999 and Interstella 6666 (Daft Punk?)

And everything space pirate Captain Harlock : several series, movies and spinoffs. The Space Pirate reflects on the future of mankind while mixing old-styled outlawed, skull & crossbone, and planet-saving hero. Sword guns, wheel to control the ship. It is a pirate ship, in space. And it’s been awesome for years.

The first serie was out in late 70s, with a prequel in mid-80s, and everything that followed
