“Iwata-san has the heart of a gamer—and my question is, what poor
bastard’s chest did he carve it from, and how often do they perform
human sacrifices at Nintendo HQ?”
Greg Costikyan said that during his GDC presentation this past week. The “Iwata-san” of whom he speaks is the current President of Nintendo and the creator of (among other things) the Kirby series of games. If I had been in the room and heard Costikyan say that, I probably would have given him the finger.
