I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

DAILY MANIFESTO

I Was Underwhelmed by My First 3DS StreetPass

Posted on Tuesday, August 23 @ 15:37:30 Eastern by

If you're like me, you've got a Nintendo 3DS but you don't take it very many places. Maybe you do, but they're typically the doctor's office, the bathroom... you know, places like that. Normally other people don't have a 3DS with them in those places. If there's a large crowd of gaming enthusiasts in your bathroom then something is wrong.

Anyway, I took my 3DS with me to Universal Studios Hollywood with me this past weekend. I had a good time. I figured I'd stick my 3DS in my bad and at the very least I'd rack up some Play Coins, the minigame currency the 3DS trades in.

As I wandered about the park, I checked my handheld system periodically. After the studio tour and King-Kong 360 3D, I discovered that I'd apparently passed another gamer! His Mii was wearing a crown and put forth an evil laugh. This gamer was from Canada and had previously been playing Nintendogs + Cats.

Suddenly I felt extremely under whelmed. I suppose it makes sense for Nintendo to want their consumers heading out to evangelize the 3D system, but this wasn't what I was thinking my first StreetPass was going to be like. The sensation of "hey that's cool" wore off faster than a nostalgia-fueled round of Goldeneye 007 on your Nintendo 64.

What's wrong with me? Shouldn't I be thrilled? I got a second StreetPass yesterday, but I still felt like I could have left my 3DS at home. What have your StreetPass experiences like and why am I so uninspired by mine?
