On meeting Shigeru Miyamoto:
I was definitely starstruck seeing the man in person. I was very excited to shake his hand, and receive his autograph. I took an opportunity off-mic to thank him for all of the good experiences I’ve had with Nintendo games growing up.
On the event being 50% contestants who qualified and 50% invitees:
I had no problem with the invitees showing up. The speedrunners are all talented gamers, and I can understand them being allowed to appear onstage. Egoraptor too, and he actually did a lot better than anyone was expecting(including Ego himself), so kudos to his good work too.
On whether he’s actually going to use his signed 3DS:
I’m still trying to figure that out. If I do ever end up using it I’ll definitely be getting a super protective case for it. Can’t let a national treasure like that be damaged.
