    I’m just learning about Reggie now but I remembered one time I went with my family to go up to the Hollywood sign and on my 3ds I fucking met him on street pass and I asked my brother who is Reggie and he started freaking out that I met him but he never told me who he was but I saw this video and remembered that so I thought I would share it but I knew he was important because he had gold pants

    Why did you have to play Mipha's theme while talking about Iwata's death. I'm already sad as Reggie is no longer at Nintendo. Why are you reminding me of the death of a great man with sad music.

  • Cyberbrickmaster1986
    Cyberbrickmaster1986 Month ago +1

    Wait... Reggie was born in 1951? But that would make him about 67 or 68 years old! He'd be older than my parents, Charles Martinet and even Shigeru Miyamoto by that logic! If this is true, then he kept his age very well. His body truly was ready!
