Hiroshi Yamauchi is one scary dude. I knew from the first moment I heard the news that he was murdered. No way was that an accident. He made Nintendo lose face. Therefore, he had to pay the ultimate price. It certainly makes you think when you play games like Pokemon and the like, doesn't it?
Actually Gunpei and Nintendo still kept in touch after he left the company. I don't think Yamauchi would kill off one of the guys that made their company the success it became. Doesn't make sense.

I like the reviews Joe. Maybe I should start my own...
