This week in Gaming history 14th November – 20th November

The main thing to happen this week in gaming history was on the 16th November 1952 when Shigeru Miyamoto was born. Creating wonderful game franchises as Mario, Zelda, Doonkey Kong, Star Fox, Pikmin and many many more he is without a doubt the most influential person in the game industry. So we wish Miyamoto-san a very happy birthday.
