How much do we hate Cammie Dunaway?

#1 Posted by HazBazz (1901 posts) -

You know who I mean, the woman from the Nintendo press conference.
"Puppies are cute, I broke my wrist, smily smily smily smily"

On a scale of 1 to 10, how terrible is Cammie Dunaway?

Well I think hate is a little extreme, although I will admit that I think she isn't that good of a speaker. Mind you, I think that the subject matter that she was talking about contributed to the quality of her presentations. That being said, I won't deny that I don't think she's a suitable replacement for Reggie in regards to being the main Nintendo speaker at press conferences. I suppose we all just felt like we were kindergarten kids, the way she spoke.

So on the scale, I'd have to say 4, because 'hate' is too extreme.

I don't hate her but I hate what she represents.

On the hate scale, she's a 5, but on the annoying scale... closer to an 8 or 9.

Give me the Regginator anytime.

I don't really care. She's a little irritating and uncomfortable, but otherwise, she's just doing her job. I prefer Reggie, though.

The problem with her is that she is just too fake. She smiles constantly and you can see that she is just faking her smile. Also nobody wants to hear someone talk about their wrist or how cute they think a 3d dog is.

She's pretty annoying.

" Reggie look at my Adorable Puppy!!!!!!"
Get out just get out now leave the company and go to some other puppy happy lovers convention.

Very well put, i agree.
#12 Posted by NeoTheta (222 posts) -

I'd have to say 6. She is such a horrible speaker, and tries way too hard to be "silly" or "funny" during her presentations, and it comes off as extremely pretentious and annoying.

#13 Posted by AegisOfDawn (70 posts) -

I don't necessarily hate her as a poster said up above, I dislike what she represents for Nintendo during that press conference. Nintendo was not built on casuals, but they sure were catering hard to it.

#14 Posted by FrozenVX (95 posts) -

She misrepresented Nintendo entirely. She was trying to show how much she loves puppies, and how even Grandmas and moms can be entertained by Wii.

Please don't remind me, I apologize for clicking on the topic.

I'd rather have Reggie's creepy death stare.

#17 Posted by patrick5152003 (264 posts) -

i'd hit it

#18 Posted by Dj (913 posts) -

2.5/10 She seems to be the exact opposite of what Nintendo fans want. She seems like she has very little knowledge about games.

#19 Posted by Black_Rose (7785 posts) -

I dont hate her, she was just doing her job

lmao I was waiting for someone to say that

I'm not going to bother using the 1-10 scale, but she is extremely irritating. She's just so fake and quite clearly knows nothing about what she's talking about.

Especially sucks for he since she has to fill Reggie's shoes...
#21 Posted by Kenzo287 (722 posts) -

everytime i hear her speak, or i read something she says I feel death getting a little closer

#22 Posted by Haziqonfire (227 posts) -

I hate her, a lot. 10/10

PS, HazBaz, did you switch from GS to GB forever?

#23 Posted by Smallerz (119 posts) -

I don't hate her, but she's got another thing coming if she thinks she can waltz into a press conference and gain "Reggie status".

#24 Posted by ArclightBorealis (1563 posts) -

I dont hate her. She just needs to understand a bit more about Nintendo. She only knows about the casual side of gaming and not the core. She thinks she does, but she doesn't. The next time she shows up at a conference, she needs to work on her part a bit better. That was their first mistake. Not having Reggie take the stage to start.

I atleast found her a slightly better speaker than Microsoft's Don Mattrick (seriously, does he expect to be the next Peter Moore?)

Still, shes just trying to do her job. I got no problem with her.

#25 Posted by Met2609 (555 posts) -

I don't think we need to HATE her, that's a bit strong. She was annoying, but so was the whole Nintendo Press Conference.

#26 Posted by BlazerRazor (17 posts) -

I don't hate her like that... I just think she is doing a horrible job - I mean... at the presentation she seemed extremely "fake" in the way she talked and everything - she needs to learn "to be down to earth".

#27 Posted by Vlademir (1029 posts) -

She doesn't seem to be in the right business.

#28 Posted by Kowalski (262 posts) -

Cammie works pretty well in that casual space Nintendo is going for. She's quite fitting for their casual image, and the whole smiles thing is effective.
The problem is, they brought her out during E3, where all eyes watching are hardcore gamers. The Presentation, including Cammie and the rest sucks, and it was a huge fucking knee in the balls for every serious gamer, and they should apologize and give us money!

#29 Posted by TheToecutter (125 posts) -

I hate her and all she fucking stands for.


Though, it's all the fucking same to me.

#30 Posted by MikeMetal (12 posts) -

I am convinced that Cammie Dunaway is the devil.

#31 Posted by Happy_Cloud (190 posts) -

I have been writing a selection of short stories featuring Carrie Dunnaway and a series of ridiculously violent and visceral deaths.

It sustains me.

Any plans to publish? I need some holiday reading.

She has her place, in the casual show.

so um yeah 10/10

I hope she dies in a fire

#36 Edited by TEAMHOLT (437 posts) -

She's a nice, middle-aged mom. She'd be horribly out of place on Microsoft or Sony's team (though Microsoft hasn't had people with good stage presence since Allard and Moore), but she's perfect for what Nintendo's doing right now.

#37 Posted by PaperPlain (243 posts) -

Its really not her fault. She's not the one who wrote that garbage. At least I think.

#38 Posted by Helo (20 posts) -

I think if she`d show at one point that she KNOWS how fake she is and make a joke about it, all would love her. A bit of irony and all of angry fanboys would just worship her.

I see POTENTIAL here, guys!

*loads shotgun* where is she?

#41 Posted by Blackgamer (8 posts) -

I think she's excellent for appealing to the mainstream audience that the industry is trying to attract especially nintendo. She reminded me of like a really energetic business school teacher.  I do not hate her.

#42 Posted by WolfODonnell (39 posts) -

I don't really know what to think...

She was just adapting her talk to the "casual" audience, which the whole conference was based on, and she did a pretty good job of doing that. But at E3, that's not what everyone wanted obviously, which lead to a lot of longtime Ninty fans getting pissed. Hell, even Nintendo offered an apology for their conference I heard. I saw what she was doing, and had potential to be a great speaker. Let's just hope that next year's Nintendo E3 doesn't bomb like this years, then maybe she can show her talents off.... Just maybe...

But she was pretty annoying... lol

#43 Posted by Systech (4078 posts) -

Her ignorance is not bliss to me.

#44 Posted by Jordan23 (1000 posts) -

She's just doing her job, she wasn't that bad. Even though, I'll prefer Reggie to the press conference in its entirety.

#45 Posted by Lorum (5 posts) -

Do you hate everyone who sells stuff you don't like? 

Thats really what people "hate"  Nintendo isn't all that concerned with the "gamer" crowd.   Yep, it sucks and I hate seeing the games that come to Wii when the potential is so much greater than whats being done.  I think the real question is "How much do we hate Nintendo's current direction?"

#46 Posted by Prototype (82 posts) -

when she gets excited she sounds like she wants to throw up and is having a seirzure at the same time!!!!!

I give her a 3. 3 = Realy Hate.
#48 Posted by CapnCloudchaser (77 posts) -

There was an interview with her on a game site, I forget which one, where she expressed her concerns that people think she is fake because of her enthusiasm.

I don't honestly understand how you can hate someone for standing up and doing a presentation, she was obviously chosen by Nintendo's team for a reason, and probably given a part to play there, but that isn't her fault. She does the job she was given to do, and I can see her having a great appeal with casual gamers. And if that enrages you, then direct that at the current focus of Nintendo, rather than blaming her for a really boring conference.
