Watch Game Head this Friday Night at 12:35a — Only on Spike!
Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime joins our very own Geoff Keighley once again to finish the fight.
In early February of 2006, (when the Wii was still The Revolution and Reggie was still a VP) at a go-kart track outside of Las Vegas, Reggie Fils-Aime and Geoff Keighley started a rivalry that has taken the gaming world by storm. By using a banana peel, Reggie managed to beat Geoff in a 200k go-kart race. However, Game Head won some previously undisclosed information on The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess.
Left embarrassed and hungry for revenge, Geoff got his rematch at Nintendo’s extremely crowded E3 booth in May of 2006 in Los Angeles. In a best of three match, Keighley managed to literally beat the then Nintendo VP at his own game: Wii Sports – Tennis.
Now the score stands at 1:1. And in THE year for competitive gaming, we’re taking a quick break from the Console Wars, and finishing our fight (sorry again Peter): Game Head’s Geoff Keighley vs Reggie Fils-Aime, now Nintendo of America President.
The tie will be broken as Geoff and Reggie go Wii Bowling, and Real Bowling, in a best of four frames challenge. Reggie admits that he hasn’t gone bowling since college (with a beer in his hand) and Keighley only knows how to bowl with ten pins. Canadians…
Bonus! We world premiere the trailer for SSX for the Wii (even Reggie hasn’t seen this). Reggie candidly talks about the Wii60 and Peter Moore even weighs in on the console love affair rumors that he started. Can there be a Reggie/Peter “Gears of War” showdown in the mix??!?!
Find out by watching Game Head’s Wii-Off special this Friday Night at 12:35a only on Spike! Frankly, it’s Wii-Tastic.
