    Triforce, the plucky young maniac who is already standing in line for a Nintendo 3DS, had his efforts scuppered on day two of his vigil, when a new shift of Best Buy workers refused to understand his activities.

    His explanations fell on deaf ears, with staff members claiming he was loitering. They eventually called the NYPD, who moved him on and told him he couldn't wait outside Best Buy anymore. That seemed to work for a short while, as he simply waited on the other side of the street, and has now returned to his exalted place at the doors of Best Buy.

    Triforce's current plan is to keep lining up and running away whenever suspicious Best Buy staff members turn up.

    This is absurd, but you gotta respect the man's plucky determination. Best of luck to the guy! (Also, Destructoid gets namedropped in the video. Check it out!).[/p]

    This is the same guy to get the first Nintendo Wii at the same Best Buy, and have it signed by Reggie Fils-Aime.

    What vigor! What passion! What lifelessness! This man is a true fanboy among fanboys. I say, let him wait in his line. Hope he brought food and shelter.

    Wow... what a determination... to buy a console...

    Isn't it better to buy the console on pre-order and receive it at home? Or to pre-order and get it on the store personally (like some stores on Japan does)?

    Gamers find feats of self-disrespect to be among the most respectable things you can do. We're weird like that.

    If you and some friends did a 24 Hour Marathon of your favorite game, you'd be pretty proud of yourselves, right? The rest of the world would be like "You guys are seriously wasting your time."
    You're right to be proud of yourself. They're right to be disappointed in you. That's just how gaming culture works.

    Do I have to say it? They're only hassling him because he's black.

    Power to the people. As-Salam Alaikum.

    No.

    I don't take pride for these type of things. Don't get me wrong though, I like gaming and I like challenges.

    Now you're just being a dick.

    Let me try putting it in a more blunt fashion. America works differently from Brazil.
