  1. Yes, Expand and develop. There are 2 huge cities in California. I’m guessing if they were going to make another Nintendo store, it would likely happen there next.

  2. They didn’t run the line very well this time around.

    They let people stand outside in the cold for up to seven hours before telling them that they weren’t going to get meet Charles Martinet, and wouldn’t get into the store before closing.

    Its not like they had a set number of bracelets they handed out early on for the event, people were lining up from about 10:00 AM and didn’t find out till close to 6:00 PM that they wouldn’t get in.

    I don’t mind having showed up too late to get into the event if a cutout for participation had been clearly detonated, but instead me and others were allowed to stand out there in the cold all day for nothing was lame.
