“F**k it, we’ll do it live”: E3 edition

The best thing about E3 for many of the people watching at home are the live shenanigans. Last year brought us uncomfortable moments such as "you will be sucked" and Ubisoft's Battle Tag. This year's batch of conferences have been mostly disappointing in that regard (though Ubisoft scores a direct hit with Mr. Caffeine). Leave it to Geoff Keighley and Reggie Fils-Aime, then, to bring the awkwardness.

Context: hot off the Nintendo E3 conference and the official announcement of the Wii U, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime sits down for a live chat with Geoff Keighley. Keighley goes in for the kill almost immediately—or as much as anyone ever does in video game journalism, anyways.

(thanks, NeoGAF. also, hope this post is in the right spirit—I’m new here!)

  1. I’m going to see if I can get my hands on one tomorrow at E3, but I don’t have high hopes for the WiiU. I’m not sure why anyone would want a 6.2″ touch screen as a controller.

    And, yeah, the Zelda clip was a tech demo. Hell, Wii Sports was a tech demo.

  2. That is a whole pile of awkwardness. Wow.
