    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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 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.

    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

    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?"

    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.
