I’ve always thought the plot for Donkey Kong Land was really creative
"Your game was only fun because it had lots of graphics"
"No way, I could be just as fun with less graphics"
"Ok well guess what I just called K. Rool, your bananas are gone again"

Reggie Fils-Aime was born in 1961 in New York City, New York. An able-bodied baby from the start, Reggie’s first words were “My name is Reggie I’m about kicking ass and taking names.” He proceeded to deliver on that promise with both of his parents.
In 1977, Reggie decided to move to the 1940’s and joined up with Archie Andrews and his ragtag group of pals. Here’s some photographic evidence.
Unable to put up with Archie’s behind-the-times ideas about malt shops and The Charleston Dance, Reggie reverted himself back into his own timeline.
In 1993, Reggie was employed by Pizza Hut. There he managed to convince them for the first time in 35 years, to start selling pizzas. This tactic worked so well for Pizza Hut they decided to start building menus around pizzas instead of menus around nothing.
After single handedly saving the US Pizza market, a strapping young man named Satoru Iwata adopted Reggie into the Nintendo family, where he works to this day under the official title of “Super President.” A job title with such benefits as being able to party 24/7, early access to top secret Nintendo products, and a desk that hovers.
Reggie plans to make an appearance during the week of E3 2013 to announce a video games.
One of my favorite pieces of Nintendo history is the Gulf War Game Boy. It’s pretty well-known among Nintendo fans but hey! It might be news to you!
After a bombing during the Gulf War, the Game Boy’s owner found it almost completely charred and melted in the wreckage of the blast and sent it back to Nintendo. A Nintendo staff member decided to try to plug it in for the heck of it, and it powered on! Once the screen was replaced it worked like a charm.
The Gulf War Game Boy is a testament to the sturdy design and enduring nature of Nintendo’s handhelds, and it’s pretty amazing to see in action. It’s on display at the Nintendo World Store in NYC, where it spends its retirement playing an endless demo of the original Tetris, adored (but not played on) by all who visit the store. Good job lil buddy, you earned it
