I don't get why people like Reggie. Granted, I don't know much about the guy. But I was watching the interview with Geoff Keighley over at GT and he came across as really really slimey. Like if he didn't get a decent education and work for Nintendo, I could totally see him as a used cars salesman.
Why do you like Reggie?
"I'm with you, why do people like him? Just to let you know, some people hate him now due to e3."Yeah, and with good reason too. I mean he was trying to sell the idea that AC is 'hardcore' because it will become more integrated. Um, no. That's like saying that the Sims is 'hardcore'. It isn't.
"I don't think he is a great speaker (sorry), I think when he speaks its not believable, he seems so fake. :\I think everyone sounds fake at their press conferences because most just read directly off of the prompter. The only speaker I can give credit to for being somewhat engaging is Peter Moore.
Not like Phil Harrison, for example! :P
I used to like him. Especially at E3 2006. But now i just think hes a bit of a tit. Especially after E3 2008. Cammie Dunaway is a whole different story though. Shes just insufferable to watch and listen to.
Nintendo have completely lost touch with their hardcore fans. The only thing at this years nintendo conference that interested me in any way was the possibilities of the Wii MotionPlus in hardcore games. Genuinely can't think of anything else.
Reggie represents the evolution of Nintendo, and the company's resurgence to glory. He appeared in a time when Gamecube was trailing in 3rd place, and was a clear, strong speaker who assured the public that Nintendo was the way to go. We all know the lines: "My name is Reggie, I'm about kicking ass. I'm about taking names, and we're about playing games." Now that the Wii has pentrated the public consciousness, it's Reggie that the public are seeing as the man behind it all. I guess those who like Reggie do so mainly because he represents Nintendo winning again.
