CHICAGO: Wii U post-launch party (+3DS gaming, of course)

Anand, me, probably my brother, and... YOU! And maybe other people too. I'm going to see who is interested.


Anand and I have been talking, and I think our basic idea is to hang out and play some Wii U post-launch, whether or not anyone else shows up. But it'd be cooler if other people showed up too.


At my place in Evergreen Park. PM for address / phone / etc. (and to let me know you are coming!)


SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1ST, 4 PM. Late arrivals are fine, I will be around all day. Hopefully by this point we will all be acclimated to the Wii U and ready for some multiplayer. And if you don't have one yet, well, this will be your chance to sit down and play one outside of a crappy demo stand!


Oh, come on...


Wii U: Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros. U, Chasing Aurora, um... anyone have ZombiU?!!? (I do not.)
3DS: Mario Kart 7, Kid Icarus Uprising, Resident Evil Revelations, 4 Swords Adventures (Chicago style!!!)

Probably some Wii and DS and whatever else we have laying around as well. It's really up to all of us. If you want to play something, ask if I already have it, or just... bring it!


There are plenty of places around here to get some food. We can also order a pizza or two or something. I will have some snacks.


BE THERE! Unlike our last attempt at a party, this is happening whether it is just Anand and I or not. Which means you better come, because being alone with Anand creeps me out!!!

Thread set to 99 just so I can easily link some friends to it.

Keep me in mind whenever I move out to Chicago.

@DrFinkelstein When is that happening? Is it still in consideration?!

Well my friend Frankie says he is down. I've also invited a few other friends and family members. We might hit that 5 after all!

Oh, I wanted to tell you. It would be better for me to do it the weekend of or two weekends after launch. It currently looks like I'll be indisposed on Thanksgiving Weekend.

Of course!

Yeah you put shorts on. And then started rubbing Crisco all over your naked upper body.

That's how I remember it, anyway.

It is but it'll be a while longer.

My girlfriend now is going to finish school in Indiana before moving out here. My friend still might move out this way soon enough but I probably wont move to Chicago unless I move with them. So it wont be 2013, but it's still in my sights and I'm trying to save save save that money in hopes of it.

Too much griefing for this party. I'm out.
Posted: 11/12/12, 00:49:08
But griefing is the POINT of the asymmetrical multiplayer!

Anyway, there shouldn't be any hard feelings. We'll all be Chicagoans!
Posted: 11/12/12, 01:07:35
Some Chicagoans are more into griefing than others, that is for sure.

Develop a teleporter and i'll be there.

Hope you all have fun however!

I was going to definitely attend, but I have to go to Madison for a wedding that weekend.

I know! I almost never have to do anything on the weekends and the one weekend I have an out-of-town commitment is the weekend you guys decide to do a meet-up. It almost feels like sabotage...
Posted: 11/12/12, 17:54:10

You can't stand it? You know they planned it?

Posted: 11/12/12, 18:29:23
@rebonack Well darn.

Maybe we should just push it to the weekend after. Although at a certain point it stops being a Wii U "launch" party.

You guys should all be like me and have no life.

So... what do we think about saturday, December 1st at around 3-4 pm to... however long it goes?

And by we I mostly mean Anand since probably no one else on here is coming. (Though other people ARE coming...)

I'll be there in spirit.
Posted: 11/26/12, 05:16:37
Hmmm, I may be available for this. Don't pencil me in just yet, but it's definitely a possibility. I do work saturdays, but usually finish between 4-6pm. I would love to meet you guys.
