PostSubject: When you go to your local game store   Tue Mar 03, 2015 3:34 pm

When buying a new new pokemon game or getting a event pokemon, what do you do?

Do you walk in with a straight face and just buy the game?

Or do you make up an excuse?

I want to know =D

For the last game X&Y I bought it with a straight face haha but this time I used my little cousin as an excuse. I bribed him with ice cream to come with me =D haha.

i bought it like i would any other game, with great shame and embarrassment. Just kidding, im too good for shame, i had a nice long conversation with the cashier at game stop about the game, he got it too and we talk about how it was and how it compared to  the original and such, and same other games that were coming out at that time. i do that with everyone about anything so im used to it

Hehe I wish I had courage like that. But I like to hangout with different groups of people, not sure that would work out well for me. But nonetheless I like your view on things pokeprincess \(^.^)/

I normally pre-order mine and get it in the post.... But when I went into Newcastle on the 28th of Feb, I talked to the guy behind the counter while I waited for them to check all the stuff I was trading in and talked in length about Pokémon competently lol. I even picked up the event Darkari code. He even went as far as to ask me for a battle... sadly I had left my ds at home coz I didn't wanna risk having it stolen as it was Match day XD

I've got a very diverse group of friends when it comes to video games. There's the Call of Duty YouTuber, the League of Legends fanatic who spits at consoles, the sports game guy who attempts to call himself a 'gamer' just to fit into conversation, and then there's me. I'm the only one who owns a 3DS, the only one who continued to play Pokemon past their childhood, the only one who would prefer a Wii U over a PS4. I'm the Nintendo guy. When my group found this out, nobody even cared. There was no reason for this to be weird and I didn't stand out in the group, because that's pretty much what everyone else was like. I sat down and I thought to myself, "Why would some people think that I'm too old for Pokemon? Really, Pokemon is just a game that interests some people more than others. Just because it's aimed at younger people doesn't mean that age necessarily has to have anything to do with it. I mean, the people on the forum here are all older people*. You look at large Pokemon forums, and most are still older people." 

I go into the game store and pick up a copy of Pokemon, maybe talk a bit to the cashier before I leave. The end, really. I doubt anyone would judge, because they've got their own games that they like to play, and I've got mine. So to answer your question, I neither make a straight face nor excuse. It's just an everyday normality that doesn't make me, or anyone else, feel any different**.

*I'm aware that the reason is likely to do with the fact that young children don't stick around forums much, I'm just saying that it's not some weird taboo that nobody does.

**Yea, there'd still be that one guy who's like, "Ooh, this guy plays kid's games, yada-yada-insert-insult-here," but they're mostly just general CENSOREDs.

Hehe very inspiring, think I'll be walking in next time and getting it as I did the previous ones haha. Thanks for all the posts guys! I'm a shy person when it comes to meeting people for the first time and not knowing what they like. (Totally a bad conversation starter haha) but I'll try to say something xD

I'm a 6'5" natural born Russian who has to duck slightly to get through the entrance to the store, I'm often dressed in black entirely with Marilyn Manson attire, and I also slightly resemble Slenderman, so the cashier rarely says anything about me buying a game for ten year olds. Buying Pokemon is easy for me, mostly due to intimidation factor.

What is this who are you

Read the thing he said because I'm not copy and pasting it.
I have no idea what that is, other than the title and what it's called. And about 6384 people talking about getting it. What even is it like? Is it worth the cash dollars? You know what nevermind I'll just look it up, you aren't gonna reply anytime soon. I should probably delete this but eh, have a thing.

EDIT: It actually looks a lot better than I thought it would. Except for this part:
"The new version of the game was released alongside New Nintendo 3DS in all regions except Australia…"
Dammit Nintendo, every time, I swear to Arceus… I'd actually get it if I had money. I don't.
