Will be heading to Pensacola, Fl. myself to cover the event if possible.  It's only about 2 hours from my home in Panama City, Fl. :)

I may have to see if I can get out there


Re: Nintendo Reveals Best Buy E3 Wii U Promotion Locations

If there isn't one near you (and there isn't one near me), don't give up hope.  There are still about two dozen locations missing from that list.  Of course, they're probably all the Canadian locations.

I am honestly surprised to see Oklahoma make the cut. Not only that, but it is close by. I will definitely be checking it out.
