Satoru Iwata And Shigeru Miyamoto Take Pay Cuts Following Nintendo’s Poor Performance

Originally posted on My Nintendo News:

Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata has revealed that he will take a voluntary 50 per cent pay cut – for the next five months – following a press conference discussing its Q3 financial results. The president also announced today that two of the company’s directors – including famed video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto – will take a 30 per cent pay cut. Other board members will also have their salaries reduced by 20 per cent.

Earlier this month, the video gaming giant slashed its initial forecast sales for the Wii U and 3DS, admitting that it had a lower-than-expected outlook for its third quarterly financial results. Today, Nintendo has posted a loss of operating income equalling 1,578 million Yen ($15.3 million / £9.2 million / €11.2 million) and projects a future operating loss of up to 35 billion yen for its final financial quarter of the year. Our full report on Nintendo’s Q3…

GameSpot Video Explains Why You Should Buy A Wii U In 2014

edwardonbebop:

Ok ! Interesting video.
At least someone says why it is interesting to buy a Wii U and to me it reads like this: to play original games !
Let’s hope some other exclusive third party games will soon show up !

GameSpot have uploaded a video explaining to those on the fence why they should buy a Wii U. The video initially talks about the poor reception the console has had with the general public and the lack of third party support, but it also explains that it’s the only place to play Nintendo’s stellar first party software. Would this video tempt you to purchase a Wii U if you haven’t already done so?

So what does a Russian wedding photographer living in Bali, Indonesia know about photographing inked girls? Answer: EVERYTHING! Photographer Igor Gerasimchuk, knows it and knows it well.

This is our second gallery featuring the work of photographer Igor Gerasimchuk, and we can’t wait to do another.

Igor says that he is not just about making pretty pictures, but ones that you will treasure. Well we treasure these for sure and we hope the rest of you will also. A big thanks to Igor who was gracious in allowing us to use his photos.

Out of The US, enjoy today’s gallery to Phillip Roebuck’s “She’s a Dollar He’s a Dime”

To say that Polish Pin Up girl Rockagirl is hot, would be a clear understatement. In the several features we have done on her she is always drop dead gorgeous. Obviously photographers such as Grymin Fotografie and Photography by Helena Bromboszcz take some wonderful photos, but they merely put a frame on a Monet!

Although she says don’t be afraid to ask her any questions on her Facebook page, we think that asking her for her hand in marriage may be too much. Oh what the heck, maybe we we’ll give it a try :)

Please enjoy the dazzling Pin Up Girl Rockagirl and the photography of  Grymin Fotografie and Photography by Helena Bromboszcz,  to todays featured artist. From Tennessee, The Clover Club with “Tied”

Le blues de Noël

Bon, voilà les fêtes de Noël approchent. Et moi je perds pied. J’exagère un peu mais l’idée est là.

Les choses allaient plutôt bien ces dernières semaines et là, PAF ! Rechute ? Crise d’angoisse ? Dépression ? Je ne sais pas trop.

Depuis mon adolescence je crois que j’ai toujours détesté Noël. Il y a comme un sentiment de contrainte qui entoure cette fête qui ne me va pas du tout.

Il faut faire les cadeaux. Il faut fêter Noël en famille. Oui, mais voilà, si je ne me sens pas bien dans ma famille: pourquoi fêter Noël ?

Si je n’arrive pas à trouver d’idées de cadeaux: pourquoi devrais-je en faire ? Je ne suis pas paresseux ni radin. Non, j’aime bien offrir des cadeaux ! Mon moment préféré est celui ou je fais l’emballage puis celui où je peux voir la personne qui reçoit le cadeau.

Non, si je n’ai pas d’idées, c’est que nous ne sommes pas assez proches. Peu importe je vous appelle “Papa” ou “Maman”, il se peut que je n’ai pas d’idées de cadeaux, c’est triste mais c’est ainsi. J’ai sûrement ma part de responsabilité dans cet état de fait, mais je ne pense pas être le seul.

Et cette année je ne fêterai pas Noël avec ma famille. Voilà. Ce n’est pas toujours à moi de faire le déplacement à l’autre bout de la France. Je pense que dans ma démarche il y a un peu la volonté de dire que je ne ferai plus les choses de la façon qu’attendent les gens autour de moi (et qui relève le plus souvent du sous-entendu, du non-dit).

Mais ce n’est pas tout, car je crois que cette année je veux aussi dire: stop. J’ai besoin je crois de créer une distance entre moi et ma famille. Cette famille que j’aime, mais qui m’a aussi beaucoup fait souffrir. Je ne serai plus aussi proche que je l’ai été. J’ai essayé, de me rapprocher, mais ça m’a fait du mal au final.

Je ne sais pas si dans tout ceci se trouve la cause de mon malaise et de mon angoisse, mais ça peut l’expliquer au moins en partie.

Christmas blues

Christmas always makes me feel blue.

I think I hate this celebration. I don’t understand why. Not yet anyway.

Maybe more on this in the coming days ?
