    So as I was driving to work today, I drove by two very unique buildings in Redmond, WA. One being the Micrsoft campus that dominates the area. And on my left was the Nintendo of America headquarters. I got to thinking, "a lot of people on MR really like Nintendo, but there is that general hate towards Microsoft." (could you tell I was bored). Its was funny to me because only a 4 lane highway seperates them really (overpass basically connects them). So is it a love/hate relationship for Redmond, WA (for those of us in America)?

    Could you tell its a slow Saturday night.

    The picture shows where both campuses are.

    i didn't know that Nintendo of America had it headquarters in Redmond, but i knew MS was there. but i couldn't care less where they were located. it doesn't really matter to me.

    Meh, I don't hate either company. I use both Microsoft products and Nintendo products.

    I updated your pictures...you forgot about the secret tunnel. I mapped it out for you using the secret GPS on my DS lite that only shows up when I link it to my XBOX 360...

    DigiPen is actually just across the street from Nintendo of America and takes up part of the Nintendo Software Technology building.


    Thanks! :)

    I hate MS's computer software division, but they sure do have awesome consoles. And if I express my feelings about Nintendo I'll get flamed into oblivion.

    erm, you forgot about the tunnel to apple that only works when connecting a PM to a DS lite's screen and stand on an Xbox 360! I mean, duh!:p

    all in all, I wouldn't judge a place on what companies are headquartered there...
