Thoughts on the passing of Hiroshi Yamauchi
This is the man that seared the image of Nintendo being the be all, end all of video games into my mind as a kid. He did some bad things, like force companies to only publish on the NES (which I only found out as a young adult), but also good things like the seal of quality (great NES & SNES games). The old guards Miyamoto and Iwata among others, I'm sure are still there, so I suspect business as usual. It's too bad because the Nintendo now is a far cry from what it was back in the eighties/early nineties, IMO.
Hip Tanaka honored Yamauchi by remixing a couple of his songs from the '80s.

Super Mario Land

I didn't need a reason to want to hear Hip Tanaka remix his own amazing music, but the fact that these are tributes to Yamauchi makes them even more awesome.
So many wonderful memories in my life from a man whom I have never met. Knowing that he has passed and listening to that Mario Land almost brought tears to my eyes.
