!! OMG, the civil-rights battle of our time: Nintendo bans same-sex relationships in new life simulator ‘Tomodachi Life’ !!

When I was a kid, all the future-gays at my school carried around little Tamagotchis. It was basically a digital, pink egg on a tiny keychain with a little bird inside who’s shit you’d have to clean up and who whined all day… sounds pretty gay to me! Well, here in 2014, Nintendo decided to play dumb and say that in their new life-sim game ‘Tomodachi Life’ — that gays just don’t exist!
Their reasoning? They’re not trying to make a statement here:

“Nintendo never intended to make any form of social commentary with the launch of Tomodachi Life,” Nintendo of America Inc. said in a statement. “The relationship options in the game represent a playful alternate world rather than a real-life simulation. We hope that all of our fans will see that Tomodachi Life was intended to be a whimsical and quirky game, and that we were absolutely not trying to provide social commentary.”

Right! Social commentary… Tomodachi‘s slogan is “Your friends, your drama, your life.” — ERRRM how is there meant to be any DRAMA without the gays around? Please, inform me.
One player, Tye Marini, a gay 23-year-old Nintendo fan from Mesa, Arizona, is pissed about the exclusion of gays of his gaming experience, and launched a campaign last month urging Nintendo Co. and Nintendo America Inc. to add same-sex relationship options to their games in English.

The game was originally released in Japan last year and features a cast of Mii characters – Nintendo’s personalized avatars of real players – living on a virtual island. Gamers can do things like shop, visit an amusement park, play games, go on dates and encounter celebrities like Christina Aguilera and Shaquille O’Neal. “Tomodachi” means “friend” in Japanese

HOLD THE PHONE — so you can want to meet Christina Augilera , in person, and somehow NOT BE A GAY!? This is some weird Twilight Zone-esque shit that DOES NOT COMPUTE! Get it together, Nintendo!

“I want to be able to marry my real-life fiance’s Mii, but I can’t do that,” Marini said in a video posted online that attracted the attention of gaming blogs and online forums this week. “My only options are to marry some female Mii, to change the gender of either my Mii or my fiance’s Mii or to completely avoid marriage altogether and miss out on the exclusive content that comes with it.”

I know, baby. I know. Someday soon…

!! OMG, RIP: Hiroshi Yamauchi, the man who built Nintendo, dies aged 85 !!

The man who helped fill my childhood with countless hours of popcorn-filled sleepovers and evening trips to the video store, has passed away!
Hiroshi Yamauchi was Nintendo’s third president, who many say was the most important! When he took over the company from grandfather in 1949:

“the Japanese company specialized in the manufacture of playing cards for its home market — first Japanese-style cards and then, under Yamauchi’s guidance, Western-style ones too. By the time he handed over control to Satoru Iwata 53 years later, he’d overseen the creation of all Nintendo’s game consoles up to the GameCube and become one of Japan’s richest men — in other words, not a bad innings for a man who passed away today at the ripe old age of 85.”

Hiroshi was also responsible for Super Mario Bros 2, which taught us all — that like Princess Peach if you just lift up your skirt, you can fly through life, skipping any of the actual hard work. A valuable lesson! RIP Horoshi!
