Nintendo recently announced that we would get to play various E3 Wii U demos live at Best Buy stores during the show. E3 is taking place in just a few short weeks, from June 11th to the 13th, and we now know when and where we will get to get our hands on those demos.
The dates and times will be as follows:
Wednesday, June 12th, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 15th, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Nah I missed the first thread, made this one, thought about locking it and making the other one into a news thread, realized that this one was already linked on Facebook and Twitter and everything, got lazy and left them both open.
Why does limiting it mean their big guns are coming? I'd think the reverse... you have big guns, you want them to be shown everywhere. But I imagine it is limited just because this isn't necessarily something you're going to do at every shop, period.
The closest one to Anand and I is Schaumburg... about 45-60 minutes from me, probably another 20-30 on top of that for Anand. Boo.
Because they wouldn't leave a new Mario game unattended or hanging around for hours and days on end. They're incredibly protective of their games, they don't want people stealing unfinished game n shit. I think it's their way if protecting their games.
And by making it limited it makes it more exclusive. More special. They're making an event of it as opposed to plopping some dirty demo station around for hours.
Dunno if someone mentioned that yet, but now Century III is listed which would be the Pittsburgh location. (Which is hilarious to me, as C3 is a slum-mall where no one ever goes anymore. Maybe that's a good thing, less lines?)
So if you checked before and didn't see your city, check again?
I dunno, I just call this whole area Chicagoland. One thing that I only recently realized is pretty unique about Chicago as a major city is that Chicago itself only has about 3 million people next to the 7 million in the many, many suburbs / rest of the metropolitan area. So you kind of have to include the rest in any serious discussion on Chicago. Hence the word Chicagoland for me... that's the quick way to describe everything. The city itself is relatively small, really.
