    Speculation Dan Adelmen to be NoA President in Future

    Here is my thoughts recently, Iwata being CEO of NoA is likely temporary as he finds someone he likes or reorganizes it. Since the last guy left Dan Adelman has been out in a lot of interviews pushing Wii U indie support etc.

    Does anyone else think he may be on the track to be NoA President?

    I doubt that's the case, but I'd love for Danny boy here to take the helm. He seems to genuinely understand what gamers want. He seems to be one of the few people at Nintendo to be in touch with the modern gaming scene.

    Bring him on board

    My gut feeling tells me that he's probably going to stay as CEO of NOA for awhile. Hmm...this is a good question...I can't seem to find an answer to why the man would leave the position for someone else. Now, weirdly, I've never heard of this Dan guy, but if what you're saying is true about the guy and whatnot, then, he should be CEO of NOA.

    Wait wait wait what about reggie?

    I know iwata is CEO but reggie is still president, and they wouldn't replace him since he's the face.

    Reggie isn't going anywhere he's the "face" of Nintendo just as much as Miyamoto and Iwata are.

    what he hell does 'soccer mom' mean? I've heard this from all sorts of American stuff and I've never understood it. I know 'mom' means 'mum' and 'soccer' means 'football' in British English...but it still makes no sense to me.
    The Metroid Prime Trilogy is ... great!

    Alright...it won't be easy, but here we go:

    In America, soccer (read: football) moms/mums are those that tend to take care of a bunch of kids all at once for a while, usually a full day or 2 at a time, in the form of a "kiddie carpool" of sorts in order to free up the other parents and save the trouble of transporting all of the kids. This doesn't just apply to soccer here and can apply to the other various popular sports(American football, baseball, basketball, even soccer), which it normally does. Henceforth, "soccer mom" is merely a moniker now. Followed all that? No? I don't blame ya.

    Now, Trolly McTrollFace here (he's not actually trolling, just poking fun) must be referring to Tatsumi Kimishima, who's a guy. Otherwise, idk what he's talking about.

    Honestly, I wish they'd do somethin with Iwata. While nintendo has done good under him with the Wii, the Wii u has taken a bad turn. I mean I love the system, all it's features, and the games. But from a marketing standpoint he has made some poor decisions. To start, the name did horribly for marketing and acquiring new users. They should've named it something different. I'm a huge nintendo fan and will always follow them, but Satoru Iwata needs to either change his MO or they need to appoint someone else and move him down the chain of command.

    it is usually used to describe, "an average, boring, (sometimes crazy or uninformed just go with the crowd) bland personality mum here in the USA. "

    I agree, I don't much care for Iwata or his excuses of, ''please unda-stand'' there is no reason that they shouldn't have their stuff together and be pouring out these games. And the Wii U is a fine console... at least i can see the potential but... It seems in this day and age its Nintendo's curse to do what they want and march to the beat of their own drum instead of building a console with devs in mind the way Sony claim to have.
    The game pad is okay.. for me the novelty is wearing off.. i much prefer the Pro Controller. the game pad last maybe a couple hours. i'm always charging it.... horrible.. the pro controller lasts 70 hours or some insane amount of time.

    I hope they rid of reggie and Iwata. . i'd like to see fresh faces and most importantly, New Direction from Nintendo.. i see no reason they can't cater to not only ALL ages like they have been but also gamers craving a more explicit and dark rated games as well.
    They should be leading the industry and have a HUGE gap in this console race since they are the team with the most combined experience.

    Reggie carries the sole responsibility for everything bad about the Wii U. Reggie designed the hardware to intentionally be weak. He programmed the OS to be slow and buggy. When 3rd parties were clamoring to get their games on the Wii U, Reggie intentionally prevented them from coming. Reggie talked Ubisoft into not keeping Rayman Legends as an exclusive and advised them to delay it until they developed the other versions. Reggie was the sole decision maker in the mass promotion and focus on the 3DS, and he gave the call to cut the budget on all Wii U commercials and advertising. They were going to reveal Zelda U at E3, but Reggie forced them to wait and not reveal it. Reggie checked out GTA V and thought it was awesome, then thought it would be funny if he didn't allow it to come to the Wii U. Reggie sabotaged online gaming so that 3rd parties are unable to implement it in their games. Reggie used Google Analytics to see that searches for DKC TF were very popular, so he decided to delay the game until after the holidays for no reason at all, except to piss us off. Plus I heard from a reliable source that he might have embezzled $10 to buy his lunch the other day. And he clubs baby seals.

    Everything good about the Wii U, which isn't much, is all because of Miyamoto.

    Edit: And I forgot that it was solely Reggie's decision to refuse to localize games.

    ... Well they did lol. At least some of them. Remember John Ricitello talking about how much he loved the Wii U? Then a year went by lol.

    Alls I'm saying is there's a difference between being dishonest and being wrong...

    @Woodensaucer, man Reggie sucks! I hate that guy!

    How many times do we have to go over this? When he said that, it appeared that 3rd parties did like the Wii U, and would support it. A lot of 3rd parties were giving the idea that they were fully on board. There was no reason for him to not believe what he said. I could make a prediction that it's going to snow this winter. If we get a freak winter where it happens to not snow at all, am I a liar?

    When you put them back to back it does start to sound far fetched.

    I think people are being to quick to say Reggie and/or Iwata should be replaced. They've only messed up one time with the Wii U so it seems unjustified.
