Wow 55 is a rubbish young age. Suppose it just shows cancer doesn't give a fuck about the quality of your health insurance.

55 is too young.

It all feels rather sudden. He missed going to E3 last year due to surgery, and that was pretty much the last we ever heard about it. Figured he must have been on the mend.

Also, the pictures of sad Mario and the like? I don't know. Seems kind of tacky and weird. Then again, we were posting pictures of Saruman and Dracula when Chris Lee died.

Nintendo put out a rather emotional letter.

Look, I feel like a dick for making fun, but something about this is really kind of creepy if you ask me. It could be the cute little corpse of Mr.Iwata, but I think it's more how horribly awkward and earnest it is. Video game characters crying and trying to bring him back to life? ugggghhhhh...

Again, there's a weird thing about the characters these people represent. I'm now thinking about Jim Henson. I'm having trouble articulating as to why puppets at his memorial service worked, where as this sort of thing leaves me uneasy.

It's the Internet. He's wearing clothes, be glad for small victories.

this is very sad news. I saw him 3 times (during press briefings) and all at E3. Never met the man but I had huge respect for him considering the negative press he got especially from Mike Patcher
