If PAX Prime 2012 is labor day weekend, I might just have to go.

I prefer PAX to be the week before Labor day weekend. It allows me to work 3 days the week before PAX weekend, 4 work days after pax, and another 4 work days after labor day weekend.

I have mixed feelings about that. Labor Day weekend is nice, but then you collide w/ Bumbershoot.

Which is good.

But it is also bad. Very bad.

Very good write up, sir. Thank you for making me more depressed that I didn't go.

Also, Andy, I believe I requested some genital to PSPV action. Was there no PSP Vita, or was your wang preoccupied?

You know they attach those things to pedestals, and I'm kind of a short dude. The only way that was gonna happen was if I could manage to climb up and do my "Monkey Boy", Beavis style.




(No, I didn't get a good look to see if Vitas were there, and I didn't want you going all seppuku on me if I got to hold one and you didn't.)

I did troll through the Sony booth, but didn't spot any offhand, but like with so much else around PAX, it could've been hiding at some tiny indie dev booth tucked in some back corner. Probably buried behind the OnLive line.

No problem.

Last year they didn't have the 3DS which is odd since it came out shortly afterwards. The year before they had the PSP 3000s tethered to young maidens for your viewing pleasure. New handhelds don't seem to get a lot of attention at PAX, even though it seems like the perfect place to advertise.

I'm pretty much sold on it, but I guess I just don't want to hype myself up then get disappointing by some random feature.

Thanks.

There were a LOT of 3DS's tethered to base stations, you could pull them to your height

But I had most of the games already, I just hovered nearby to capture StreetPass Miis. I got over 100!!

Very well done! That was a great "PAX" experience in a nutshell.

The hardware might not get a lot of love but Nintendo put on a huge spread for Mario Kart 7 (asshole game as per usual), Starfox 64 3D (win), OoT 3D and Super Mario 3DS.

Oh and Skyward Sword which is very win.

You also forgot Kid Icarus, that was another hands-on there.

My bad. Tack it up to my brain being fried from the return flights and the fact that I played KI at a pre-launch party months ago and found it to be alright, but not excellent.

I agree with that statement - kinda how I felt about it too, wasn't terribly amazing.

I actually found the most fun 3DS game to be Starfox. Like OoT it changes just enough to keep you happy while still retaining the old gameplay. Also, fuck Sector Z, it's not any easier even now, over a decade later.
