Nintendo wrapped up their yearly investor conference, and let loose some interesting tidbits. Atlas sighs heavily as David and Matt discuss what this could mean for the beleaguered developer of whimsy. We also discuss the massive EVE Online battle, the ridiculousness of Battlefield 4’s upcoming Player Appreciation Month, and the atrocities of in-app purchases in classic games.

I've been gaming since my dad made the bad decision of buying me a Nintendo when I was four years old. Every day I'd find myself with my face glued to a TV screen, punching away at buttons, getting furious with Bowser, Dr. Wily, and those freakin' birds in Ninja Gaiden. Since then I have failed to get my parents to play any board game with me, I sold my full copy of Earthbound with box and guide for $300 to some dude in Austria for rent money, and I still believe in Nintendo even after all these years.
