GTTV’s Geoff Keighley, apparently completely oblivious to the fact Nintendo boss Reggie Fils-Aime’s obviously getting annoyed, puts up a commendable barrage of hardcore-related questions to the company front man in a three-part video interview after the break, shot just after he came off the E3 stage last week.
There was an immediate backlash after the conference, during which Nintendo showed no core games at all aside from a new version of Animal Crossing.
“You keep trying to date me, you know,” Reggie said after Keighley continuely tried to get solid information on new Mario and Zelda titles. “My girlfriend’s going to get upset. You keep trying to date me. You can’t do that.”
Watch it. It’s funny.

Many gamers were apparently disappointed with the lack of “core” titles at Nintendo’s E3 conference last night, but Nintendo of America boss man Reggie Fils-Aimes doesn’t understand why they all feel left out.
“How could you feel left out? The Animal Crossing that we’ve been hearing about that people wanted,” he told G4. “Fully connected to the internet, go to other people’s towns. Plus as I said, Grand Theft Auto on the DS. How do you feel left out with those types of announcements?
“Make no mistake, Mr Iwata said quite clearly: Mario teams, Zelda teams are working, they’re bringing product out for Wii this generation. We’re going to continue to bring all our best franchises to both of our key platforms and continue driving that experience both core as well as brand new consumers.”
To be honest Reggie, we don’t think the problem “core” gamers have is with the quality. It’s the quantity.
