History Lesson: HAL Laboratory

HAL has proved extraordinarily influential for Nintendo. Its backstory apparently starts in 1980, in the big Seibu store in the shopping district of Ikebukuro in Japan. If you were a man in Japan with a passion for games, the dedicated computer department in here was mecca. (Culture, Earthbound, HAL laboratory, Industry, Kirby Wii, Nintendo, Retro, Satoru Iwata)
