Happy 120th, Nintendo!

Post by Son Goku on Tue Sep 29, 2009 7:39 pm

That's right. Today is the 120th anniversary of the founding of Nintendo. They were founded September 29, 1889 as a Hanafuda card company, made Disney cards and love hotels in the 40s and now look where they are today. Long live Nintendo!

A love hotel (ラブホテル, rabu hoteru?) is a type of short-stay hotel found in Japan operated primarily for the purpose of allowing couples privacy to have sexual intercourse. Similar establishments also exist in other East Asian countries and regions such as South Korea[1], Taiwan and Hong Kong. The same concept also exists in Central and South America, particularly in Guatemala, Chile and even the USA and Mexico where they are called "autohotels" [2], Brazil, where they are called "Motel", and in Argentina, often called "albergues transitorios" but also referred to as "telos" (after reversing the syllables of the word "hotel").

Love hotels can usually be identified using symbols such as hearts and the offer of a room rate for a "rest" (休憩, kyūkei?) as well as for an overnight stay.[3] The period of a "rest" varies, typically ranging from one to three hours. Cheaper daytime off-peak rates are common. In general, reservations are not possible, leaving the hotel will forfeit access to the room, and overnight stay rates only become available after 10pm. These hotels may be used for prostitution or by budget-travellers sharing accommodation.

Entrances are discreet and interaction with staff is minimized, with rooms often selected from a panel of buttons and the bill settled by pneumatic tube, automatic cash machines, or a pair of hands behind a pane of frosted glass. Although cheaper hotels are often quite utilitarian, higher-end hotels may feature fanciful rooms decorated with anime characters, equipped with rotating beds, ceiling mirrors, or karaoke machines,[4] strange lighting or styled similarly to dungeons, sometimes including S&M gear.[5]

These hotels are typically either concentrated in city districts close to stations, near highways on the city outskirts, or in industrial districts. Love hotel architecture is sometimes garish, with buildings shaped like castles, boats or UFOs and lit with neon lighting.[3] However, some more recent love hotels are very ordinary looking buildings, distinguished mainly by having small, covered, or even no windows.[6]

Love hotels developed from tea rooms chaya (茶屋?), mostly used by prostitutes and their clients, but also by lovers. After World War II, the name tsurekomi yado (連れ込み宿?), literally "bring-along inn" was adopted, originally for simple lodgings run by families with a few rooms to spare. These establishments appeared first around Ueno, Tokyo in part due to demand from Occupation forces, and boomed after 1958 when legal prostitution was abolished and the trade moved underground. The introduction of the automobile in the 1960s brought with it the "motel" and further spread the concept.

The original term has since fallen into disuse within the industry itself thanks to the euphemism treadmill, and an ever-changing palette of terms is used by hotel operators keen on representing themselves as more fashionable than the competition. Alternative names include "romance hotel", "fashion hotel", "leisure hotel", "amusement hotel", "couples hotel", and "boutique hotel".[6]

They know how to handle their business (something I can't say for most of the businessmen in my country).
Heh, my father installed a fancy ceiling mirror in our apartment. He took it down a few years back, priest was visiting our home and he didn't want to bother about what he may say or think.

It is weird that Nintendo used to do other things, and now focus just on videogames, while Microsoft and Sony do other things besides videogames.

Less Wii Music. More Zelda. And please allow Miyamoto to up the difficulty level in games or at least give us an option. Miyamoto even said he has to constantly stop himself from making the games too difficult for the 'casual' gamers (n00bs).
