Today is a very special day, but a lot of people don't know it. It's Nintendo's birthday (Dyram: Actually, it's someone else's birthday as well...)! I'm sure, you know, GBD knows, but many fans forget that Ninty is actually really damn old. It was founded in 1889 in Kyoto by Fusajiro Yamauchi to sell "Hanafuda" playing cards. Yamamuchi started producing cards with hand drawn artwork to distinguish his product. Nintendo (任天堂) as some of you can see has the "ten" as in "tenshi" or "tengen." The name translates roughly to "leave luck to heaven." Nifty, eh? I think there's only one thing to say to the company on it's 124th birthday and that is...

Also I beat Persona 4 and it was amazing and I cried and my life is empty now...watch this video if you want to laugh and laugh (though it's a bit spoilery):
