Let’s be honest: the best part about any video game expo/convention is StreetPassing. There are moments where we’ll connect with our favorite Internet personalities. We’ll occasionally get lucky enough to see a Mii with gold pants and proceed to geek out over being that close to a Nintendo employee. At the end of the day, though, it’s all about the puzzle pieces for me.
I was giddy with excitement as I boarded the flight to Boston and checked how many puzzle pieces I needed to complete my collection. “Only about 100 or so,” I said aloud. “Not bad. I should probably…wait, what’s this update thing?”
“Oh, it’s updating with new puzzles,” a friend told me.
A rage was building inside me. “… more puzzles?”
“Yep, and I think they’ll add more this weekend too.” They did.
While I did manage to put a nice dent into the puzzles I do have, there are three others I don’t have access to. I won’t be able to come close to filling them until the next convention, which won’t be until at least this summer.
I have feelings about this. Why aren’t more people traveling around Cincinnati with their handhelds?
