Hi, everybody! There's sad news: Died today at age 85 Hiroshi Yamauchi, the former president of Nintendo from 1949 until 2002. He is credited with transforming Nintendo from a small hanafuda card-making company in Japan to a multi-billion dollar video game company. He was also the largest shareholder at Nintendo. :(

RIP Yamauchi, We will miss you.
