Zombies Run Nintendo - Zombie Iwata & Zombie Reggie?

Coffee Beans
Nintendo just wrapped up their E3 conference, and during the conference Reggie Fils-Aime's true form was revealed with the power of the Wii U's GamePad scanning capabilities. Take a look:
He was mumbling something about "French food", perhaps he meant "French roast"!?

His body WAS ready, but apparently not anymore.

As for the President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, he waited until after Nintendo's E3 conference to reveal his true zombie form. Take a look:

Either these two guys need to drink some coffee and perk up, or the Wii U GamePad really does show them for what they are: zombies.

Many have wondered why video game developers seem obsessed with making zombie games, especially over the last few years. I think now we know why game developers love developing zombie games.

There is the phrase, "You are what you eat.", I say we can now apply this to game developers as well, "You are what you develop.", with Satoru Iwata and Reggie Fils-Aime being the proof.

Caffeinated Thoughts
I'll be piecing together some more "complete" thoughts on E3 probably Thursday after it wraps up, and probably doing another post just for fun later tonight.

In brief though, after just watching the Nintendo conference, I thought it was pretty "underwhelming, not exciting, very bland, almost boring" in short. Outside of ZombiU which is a third party game, I can't think of many exclusives shown that we didn't know about before this week started (technically I guess we did know about ZombiU with Killer Freaks from Outer Space, but that game is no more). More on all this later.

You can pre-order ZombiU on Amazon.com below:

    I can't tell if you're insulting them or just being very straight-forward with a joke?

    But yeah, I agree that E3 was disappointing for Nintendo. It was just okay, nothing special. Microsofts was terrible, though.

  2. "I can't tell if you're insulting them or just being very straight-forward with a joke?"
    Haha, just joking. If I was not so cheap, perhaps investing in the "SarcMark" would be a good investment for me?
    I didn't watch Microsoft's conference, just read a description...and it read BORING. I really would like to know who is in charge of the marketing departments at these companies...

  3. Your quick impression? Pretty much in-line with mine and what I've been seeing from everyone. This year's E3 just really seemed to underwhelm imo. I'll be getting my more specific Nintendo thoughts up probably tomorrow morning - and while there are titles of interest, nothing that has me going: I can't wait! I can't wait!

    Which is really different from years past.

  4. Underwhelmed. I wrote a whole piece on it on my blog :P

    But yeah, they need to step up their game in the price/launch details announcement conference because I find it a hard sell to buy one of these at launch. And I'm a Nintendo fan.

    NintendoLand is also not that interesting to me. Unless it has online features. Not everyone can find 4 friends to play with :P (Together Alone!)
