So, that was a huge bummer. The Nintendo World staff were extremely rude and unhelpful about it, while the Nintendo representative present and the general security were very kind and cooperative but unfortunately couldn't do anything about it. It would be nice if we knew that we wouldn't be getting anything hours ahead of time when the line was already more than saturated instead of a half hour beforehand, 'cause it was cold outside and my leg was cramping up, but whatever. My bud exchanged friend codes with a few of our new comrades and we went down to the underground Gamestop to buy the game ourselves (Nintendo World was a packed mess, I couldn't even figure out where to buy the game and there was a massive line, and unsurprisingly I was a bit bitter and didn't feel like spending more time there) and we got a neat poster with it, too, so that's nice.
Yep. That was my day. I started Alpha Sapphire on the train and it really took me back What a lovely game, everything is so familiar.
I just really don't understand how some people can be so disrespectful and feel so entitled that they'd pull what they did. It's disgusting. I'm really ticked off at the people around them who let it happen, too. You don't do that, you tell security and you get them ejected. If you're that far ahead, you're one of the people that was waiting since 3 AM or earlier, you should know that these people don't deserve those spots in line and feel a responsibility for the rest of the line. Ugh. Bleh. People make me so mad. These aren't the kinds of values that Pokemon teaches.
