Gunpei Yokoi said “The Nintendo way of adapting technology is not to look for the state of the art but to utilize mature technology that can be mass-produced cheaply.” He articulated his philosophy of “Lateral Thinking of Withered Technology” (枯れた技術の水平思考, “Kareta Gijutsu no Suihei Shikō”)

Gunpei Yokoi – Do these playworlds really need to be that photorealistic, I wonder? I actually consider it more of a minus if the graphics are too realistic.

You’re the least tubular person I know. You’re the definition of ungnarly.

Merry Christmas

Men forbidden to honour a king will instead honour millionaires, athletes, film-stars, even famous prostitutes or gangsters. Spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served. Deny it food and it will gobble poison.
