Happy to announce my official CHOBLOG schedule! The CHOBLOG will be a weekly post, going live on Thursdays between noon PST & 3pm PST (giving me a workable window just in case something pops up). Today is a special exception, but going forward that will be the general timeframe. I think this is going to be a lot of fun and please, please make sure and post in the comments because I will def. be reading what you have to say and responding so we can enjoy each other’s discourse (that sounds kind of filthy).
It’s been a while since I’ve been to a preview event and I had forgotten how much fun they are. Plus, Nintendo really knows how to do them well; not only do they provide you with amazing Mario-themed cookies, BUT they’re also never overcrowded, so you don’t feel the need to jostle for space. They also provide plenty of people to answer any questions you might have, as well as a substantial amount of hardware so that everyone can get a decent amount of hands-on time with both the systems and the titles.
As you’re probably already aware, they also handed out the New 3DS XL to those in attendance. I had already started taking pics during the event, so I’ll post those first with my unboxing to sign us out 🙂
When I took this, most people were at lunch hence the sparsity of people at the kiosks. Reminds me of what it looks like inside a Virgin America flight…but with awesome games and not just the unplayable version of DOOM on the in-seat entertainment that constantly freezes during your take-off. (It happens a lot. Believe me).
Up close of the left-hand thumbstick. Not much to look at but VERY reactive to touch and extremely helpful to control the camera within the games – Also PERFECT for Smash fans.
The wireless switch is now missing from the side of the system! So, where did it go?????
Here it is! Sneaky little thing…. To find it: Go to your home screen. There, in the upper left-hand corner will be a menu icon. Click on that and then scroll down until you see the above image. PRESTO-CHANGE-O!
Here’s an image of me. Just because.
Here’s a pic of what I listened to on the way home. Just because. *snicker* (but for real, I listened to it).
