Hey y'all,

So I've been on the fence about getting a 3DS for a long time now, but what with PAX East around the corner, and what with local multiplayer being the best way to pass the time in line, I'm finally giving in. What games should I expect people to be playing? What are the must-have titles to make me eligible for any in-line pickup games?

Thanks.

What people might be playing: Fire Emblem Awakening, Etrian Odyssey IV, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

What people will probably be playing: Pokemon Black/White 2, Mario Kart 7

What people are actually playing: Mii Streetpass Plazza

This is accurate. Particularly the part where everyone seems to have Streetpass data for Fire Emblem: Awakening, and it is most people's "currently playing" game.

But yeah, I'm sure if you actually want to play something, Mario Kart 7 and Pokemon Black/White 2 are going to be the most plentiful ad-hoc local wireless multiplayer games. But PAX is all about the streetpassin'.

Just for the record, I went into PAX East 2012 with 8 street pass tags, and came home with 630.

@morbid_coffee: Haha, thanks, I'll get Mario Kart and Pokemon, and Fire Emblem (for myself more than anything). And I'll be sure to start rackin' up dem tags. I assume it's like in Battlefield, where I have to stab them first, right?

@morbid_coffee: Hell, I should just go to Pax East for street passes. My 3DS has been feeling pretty damn lonely in Illinois...
