Suuuuuuperbowl Sunday!

I woke up with a smile on my face today. Why? Because I sat up till 3am watching my Sabres dismantle the Maple Leafs for a whole 60 minutes last night! Then I realised... Superbowl time!

So, today's plan was to head up to London for the Eurogamer 3DS expo. The guy I was going up with called the Expo hotline just to checkout what was going on and we got some pretty shitty news.

Its not a 3DS expo as such... its more along the lines of a presentation. Some Nintendo representative stands on a stage waffling on about the new 3DS, what it can do and how good it supposedly is whilst you WATCH, not play with - WATCH a demonstration. Then four 3DS's get shared out between roughly 100 people for 30 minutes. You still only get to watch. 

You know when you walk into a PC store, or a superstore with consoles in and they always have the "Customer Demo" which is actually an interactive video. Thats exactly what the 3DS's had. Right there and then we decided to cancel and shredded the tickets.

A £25 train ticket to London to watch a video on a 3DS. No thanks. 

I'm so stoked for tonight though. A group of us are off out to a bar in Canterbury that's having a HUGE Superbowl bash. Being a Bengals fan, its only natural I'm going to root against the Steelers and in this case its Aaron "God"gers and the Pack.

To all my followers, have a great day, enjoy the big game and check in tomorrow, ciao!

  23. Actually there WAS Superbowl for me here in Germany :o...
    The german tv channel ARD (Das Erste) brought it from 0AM to about 4AM in the morning :).
    I usally dont watch any sport on television except football (not american football).
    But i can say that this Superbowl (was the first time i saw it) - except the half-time show - was pretty enormous and cool!
    "The Americans are crazy people" was the only thing i thought when i heard that you guys sold parking spaces for about 500 bucks... Now thats f*cked up!
