Random Time! - Stranger Things star was promoting Nintendo before his big success

Notice anyone familiar in that amiibo/Smash Bros. Wii U commercial from 2014? If you are a fan of Stranger Things, you might have caught none other than Steve Harrington (played by Joe Keery) getting in some Smash Bros. Wii U fun. Yet another famous actor that popped up in a Nintendo commercial before they hit it big. Let's see if Keery ends up as successful as Paul Rudd!

Random Time! - Star Fox developers almost leaked Nintendo 64 details after a mishap

The following information comes from the subreddit of the boss of Q-Games, Dylan Cuthbert:

I remember one from my Nintendo days where Giles (Goddard, fellow coder on StarFox) and I had been drinking with the Nintendo staff, this was towards the end of StarFox 2 and Giles had just got the loose leaf documentation (several hundred pages) for the very early prototype of the N64... anyway, I didn't have my bicycle so I hitched a lift on the back of Giles' (it had two metal pegs attached to the back wheel that you could stand on, and this kind of "double riding" was often seen in Japan in the 80s and 90s) ... anyway, we get back to town and we're crossing a busy road when Giles hits a pothole or something and we go flying, but so do the 100s of loose leaf pages, all over the road in central Kyoto... and the walk light blinked to red so we were laughing our heads off, completely drunk, frantically scrambling around picking up all this top secret documentation, jamming up the traffic. It took a while.
