On This Day in Nintendo History: Satoru Iwata's Presidency; Mario vs. Donkey Kong; Kurikin Nano Island Love Story

On this day (May 24) in Nintendo history... Satoru Iwata became the fourth president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Nintendo. Under Iwata's direction, Nintendo developed the Nintendo DS and Wii video game consoles, helping the company achieve financial success. As a self-declared gamer, he focused on expanding the appeal of video games across all demographics through a "blue ocean" business strategy. The company attained record profits by 2009, and Barron's placed Iwata among the top 30 CEOs worldwide. Iwata subsequently expanded his blue ocean strategy by defining a quality of life product line for the Wii that later evolved into a ten-year business strategy to create stand-alone products. Later hardware such as the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U proved far less profitable than the Wii, and Nintendo's net sales fell by two-thirds from 2009 to 2012; the company observed its first operating losses in 30 years during this time. Throughout his career, Iwata built a strong relationship with Nintendo fans through social media and his regular appearances in Iwata Asks and Nintendo Direct. Mario vs. Donkey Kong was released in 2004 for the Game Boy Advance in North America. In this platform/puzzle game, developed by Nintendo Software Technology, the famous Nintendo mascot is pitted against his old adversary in a unique twist on the platform genre that made them famous. The mischievous ape has swiped all the Mini-Mario toys from Mario's toy factory, so it's up to you to rescue them from across six inventive worlds. You'll be scratching your head at puzzles in some stages. Kurikin Nano Island Love Story was released in 2007 for the Nintendo DS in Japan. In this role-playing game, developed by MediaKite*, you are a student at the Nano Academy, which can be found on Nano Island, home to over 100 species of bacteria. You have to harvest the bacteria from around the island and use them to battle other bacteria. There are 24 chapters, each giving you a mission to complete before you can progress. Use the touch screen to draw circles around the group of bacteria you want to move. What are you favourite memories of these games? How do you think they hold up today? Hash it out in the comments.    (I am a bot.

Response regarding the themes of failure in Botw.

This is from someone else's post on the BotW subreddit regarding this theme in the game: "You, in this game, are a failure. Zelda is a failure. That's the starting point. She failed to access her holy powers until it was too late - the kingdom had all ready fallen. The Champions are failures, and so is Link. You lost. Fair or unfair, regardless of how much work they put in or how sincerely they tried, everyone failed. The kingdom, the whole civilisation you all fought to preserve, is gone forever." Well... this is upsetting AF and right here would be your reason to contemplate suicide. It won't be as baffling for someone in link's place to make the choice of ending their lives. Now here's my argument... You have a higher chance of having a mental breakdown and giving up rather than having any motivation or incentive to defeat Ganon when he basically won. How the hell can anyone recover from that or have any sort of faith in the world left in them after shouldering such a burden? Any normal shmuck put in Link's place is going to snap and go completely insane over such a burden and the poor sap would rather commit seppuku or throw themselves off a cliff to their deaths than defeat Calamity Ganon. unless you can bring forward proof that a human can take a burden of that immensity, I'm going to assume that no Human or rather no Modern Human is going to take that responsibility without completely losing their mind and going mad from the immense grief that follows. Everything is gone. Everyone you knew. Ganon is going to destroy everything - but what's the point of fighting that? Everything you knew is all ready gone.The answer is quite easy and simple I don't see any chance of someone ever recovering from and live with that. As a wise Robloxian once said, "Go Commit Die". This would be so scarring to the psyche of a regular person and they would be drained of any hope left in them. It's either suicidal ideation or at best, becoming depressed, jaded and embittered individual who has given up on everything. It's a student not committing suicide after failing their most important exam. Looking to the horizon and thinking, all right, I'll strive for something new then.It's choosing to live after a divorce, it's persisting after losing your dream job. Give me proof that Humans were able to persist in events of the same scale as the Calamity otherwise this a poor comparison, It isn't something small in your insignificant life that you can get over. This is monumental and far greater than any misfortune in your life. An entire civilization and the people closest to you died because you failed to stop the cataclysm. No one can persist from that. A better comparison is surviving a nuclear war after society, the comforts of living and everyone you love went up in atomic flames. How can anyone persist or have any hope after going through that? Especially knowing you'll inevitably die from starvation, freezing to death from nuclear winter, radiation poisoning or get shot by other more prepared survivors.
