At yesterday's DICE Awards, Nintendo cleaned up. The Kyoto-based game company didn't send their development teams to the ceremony. Instead, it was up to one man to collect all the trophies. His name is Nintendo Guy.

Of course, that isn't his real name (it's Nate Bihldorff), but yesterday, it was. Bihldorff, who works as a localisation manager for Nintendo of America, appeared on stage repeatedly, giving a fitting and eloquent speech for each award he accepted.
Shout-out to Nintendo guy at @Official_AIAS for actually have a full speech for each award.

After already appearing on stage a couple of times to accept awards, when Bihldorff went up to get the award for Snipperclips, he said, "Hi again. Sorry, I'm Nintendo guy for the night."

No, you are Nintendo Guy for forever.
Can #NintendoGuy just accept all studio earned and proxy awards at all the shows? Thanks.
