On my first appearance on line for the Nintendo Switch at Nintendo New York, I brought Triforce some pizza. Later in the week I heeded a larger calling. I was asked to bring go uptown to acquire two 32-inch pizzas, one of which would be a Poké Ball Pizza.
On Presidents Day, I stopped by the line. That was when I received a message from Triforce explaining the plan to deliver 2 32-inch pizza pies, one of them being a half-cheese half pepperoni with black olives going down the middle to make it look like a Poké Ball. Triforce wasn’t able to bring the Pizza and I CND had to stay at the line so I was the one who had to go up to Harlem to order the two pizzas and bring them down back to Rockefeller Center.
So after 2 missed buses, I got on a bus a bus and headed uptown. When I got there. I went right to the Pizza shop and ordered the two huge pizzas.
Once they were done, I called a Lyft and brought the Pizzas back to the crowd.
In the video below you can see me delivering the pizza two the Switch Line.
Below is a blog of me recapping when I brought over the Pizza. I could get much footage because my camera going crazy.
Sadly because I was busy with MAGFest I did not get too much (Usable) footage from MAGFest but I was able to catch the Nerf War and get some footage of that.
Also, I shot a bonus clip where Margurl (who organizes the Nerf War yearly) faces a firing squad.
Have you heard about Captain Nintendo Dude (CND) waiting for the Nintendo Switch a month before the launch at Nintendo New York, and how Triforce from Empire Arcadia helping him out.
Guess who got dragged in?
Mystic, Valor, Royalty, Harmony, and Instinct.
This weekend I went to MAGFest. It’s something I try to do each year. If you have not gone to MAGFest you do know what you are missing. And if you like video game-based music, then you really really need to check this out. Continue reading

Today I read about the video game website Pixel Empire and how people were calling them out for stealing review from other people’s content. The site did not handle the situation at all when they put out a lousy statement posted with a picture of a crying baby.
As a person who has written for many different outlets, Pixel Empire’s attitude when they were exposed was sickening. You can’t just tell people to “work harder” to get noticed while you are building an online presence with stolen content. Without that content, your website is nothing. If I were to stole a car from dealership and get caught, I can’t just say “Oh, think of this as free advertisement.”
Hopefully PE learns from their errors and works on making content by writing their own reviews, or hiring someone write them for you.
