Nintendo designer talks ‘amiibo,’ ‘Zelda’ and ‘Mario’
Shigeru Miyamoto seems giddy — and with good reason. The veteran Nintendo designer behind such landmark video-game franchises as “Mario Bros.” and “Donkey Kong” is happy that after three years of sluggish sales for Nintendo’s touchscreen-centric Wii U console, the Kyoto, Japan-based gaming giant is bouncing back, just like the famous springy plumber dreamed up 33 years ago by Miyamoto.
’Hobbit’ tops box office with $90.6 million since opening
While Hollywood continued to wrestle with the fallout of the Sony hacking scandal, the weekend box office offered the solace of a moviegoing truism: Hobbits sell. Peter Jackson’s final installment of his six J.R.R. Tolkien adventures, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” debuted with $56.2 million over the weekend and $90.6 million since opening Wednesday, according to studio estimates Sunday. For an industry reeling from the cancellation of “The Interview” and terrorist threats against moviegoers, Middle-earth provided reliable refuge.

The Smashing Pumpkins are dead. Long live the Smashing Pumpkins. It’s fair to say lead singer Billy Corgan, who grew up in Glendale Heights, has an ambivalent relationship with his band. Corgan may be the Pumpkins’ only remaining original member, but the non-band has just released its eighth studio album, “Monuments to an Elegy.” A slice of grungy pop-rock featuring guitarist Jeff Schroeder, who joined the Pumpkins in 2007, and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, it’s received good reviews — though not good enough for Corgan.
