Really? The guy doesn't release a bunch of niche games and he's suddenly unqualified for a job that no one did especially well until he was hired?
For me, it's more that he didn't release a bunch of niche games when he had **** all coming out for the Wii otherwise. And despite their niche status, as I've stated before they could still
have turned a profit for Nintendo of America because the vast majority of the localization costs were already
paid by Nintendo of Europe. Instead, Reggie spent the last year focusing almost exclusively on the 3DS (which, considering its failure for most of the year, doesn't inspire confidence in him).
That is why I have a great deal of respect for what Nintendo of Europe is doing: while Nintendo of America abandoned its fans and left the Wii brand for dead until Zelda's release, Nintendo of Europe has been taking risks and giving Wii owners something
worthwhile to play during this long software drought. And when you consider how much of a monetary risk NoE is taking localizing these games, it's pathetic
that Reggie can't be bothered (so far) to piggyback on their hard work and give North American Wii owners the benefits of NoE's labors.
And I'm not going to apologize for not buying crap like Manhunt 2, a game that I was never
interested in and turned out to be horrible. It didn't deserve
to be bought. Sin & Punishment 2 was a good game as well, but I never got the impression that Nintendo of America really knew what to do
with the game in marketing. I did buy that game, though.
