The Microsoft / Nintendo love-in continues! This time it revolves around an achievement for Gears 5 that references ex-Nintendo of America chief Reggie Fils-Aimé.
Developer The Coalition revealed Gears 5’s achievements this week, and the first one you get in the game is for completing boot camp for five gamerscore. Its name: My Body is Ready.
This is an obvious reference to Reggie, who kickstarted one of video game’s most famous memes when he declared “my body is ready!” on-stage at E3 2007 as he prepared to complete a body check on the Wii balance board.
