Well I am a happy little camper right now! Yesterday I had a super fun day in the city – JDubs and I went to the Nintendo World Store [again!] to attend the pre-release event for Pokémon Rumble Blast! I’m not going to lie – the event last week at Comic Con was cooler.
The biggest aspect of this past Sunday’s event was the fact that you could purchase the new Pokémon Rumble Blast game one day before other stores have it available. (That was reason enough for me!) They also gave me a few new AR marker cards, which is always cool. The swag was all the same as last week’s, including the drawstring bag, t-shirts and the map/chart from the B&W Guide.
While the ‘event’ wasn’t that eventful, I did go on a mini-awesome shopping spree. I’ll try to remember to take photos of the cute stuff I got, including a Pikachu t-shirt, a Goomba knit cap, and a New Super Mario Bros. tote bag.
What’s important is that I’ve got Pokémon Rumble Blast in my hot little fist! I’ve been kind of blowing through the game, but I will attest that the Battle Royales are no joke! You really need high powered Pokémon to succeed! JDubs, being the amazing boyfriend that he is, opted to preorder his Rumble Blast from GameStop so that we could get the special edition Pokémon pin set as well. He was pretty jealous that he couldn’t play the game yesterday with me though! 🙂
Sadly for me, I have work today. We have a new intern in my office so I can’t even sneak my 3DS into my lap for discreet slacking off… so I can’t quite play while I’m at work. But after work, we are going straight to GameStop to get JDubs’ copy, and I’ll be picking up my new “Kirby’s Return to Dreamland” Wii game, which also comes out today. I got to play Kirby’s new game a little bit at the Nintendo World Store – it was FREAKIN AWESOME!!! There are ‘super abilities’ and they are so kick ass. OMFG.
