Hurricane notwithstanding, I'll be fling through the air with the greatest of ease in a few hours, heading to Seattle for PAX, the video game convention.
Nintendo's going to be at PAX, and I'm definitely going to stop by, and I'm really curious how they're going to react. I can imagine everyone there being supernice and friendly. I can also imagine someone getting a rictus grin and saying, "Hi, uh-uh, great, okay," and wandering off, talking into her jacket sleeve that Tulip is in the bouquet, REPEAT, TULIP IS IN THE BOUQUET! And then I stand there for five minutes confused while everyone asks me to wait, and then I'm asked to leave by large men.
Other reasons to stop by the Nintendo booth, besides awkwardness humor, are playable games. Super Mario 3DS, Mario Kart 7, the Kid Icarus game, Star Fox 3D, plus Shinobi and Sonic. No way am I passing up playing them before they're out.
Are you going to PAX? If you, if you see me, stop me and say "Shigeru sent me." Be the first person to say it and I'll give you a free book!
