Starting on Aug. 19, select Best Buy stores around the country will host qualifying events in eight locations around the country. Players will be divided into two groups based on their age, and both groups will play Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. The first age group, 12 and Younger, will play as Mario on the Nintendo DS "Luigi's Mansion" course using Standard Kart, Standard Wheels and Super Glider. The second age group, 13 and Older, will play as Bowser on the Game Boy Advance "Bowser Castle 1" course using Standard Kart, Standard Wheels and Super Glider. The player with the best Time Trial entry in each age group at the end of the two-day event at each location will qualify for the Nintendo World Championships 2017!

Additionally, anyone who visits these events at Best Buy will be able to try demo versions of the Super Mario Odyssey game, launching Oct. 27 for the Nintendo Switch system and the Metroid: Samus Returns game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, arriving on Sept. 15. Plus, visitors who are My Nintendo members will be able to check in using their My Nintendo QR Code at any of the qualifier event locations to receive 100 Platinum Points. My Nintendo members who are one of the first 200 to check in daily at each location will receive a My Nintendo pin as an added bonus.

I miss the old days when my local Best Buy would have Guitar Hero competitions, which was co-sponsored by the Starbucks that was in the same shopping center. It was a few years back, I remember Guitar Hero was huge back then. Every time I was in the store, there was always somebody playing the guitar demo, young children, even older men with grey hair. I'd also see the occasional young guy who'd play for a long time, and his girl would stand beside him watching, and the girlfriends never had a chance to play.

I miss the old days when my local Best Buy had a VHS rental section.

I miss the old days when my local Best Buy was 3 hours away and didn't know the store existed because we was too poor to go to a place like that. Always had to rely on looking into the electronics section of Fingerhut catalogs to see the latest games and consoles. I wrote to Santa several times telling him what I wanted out of those catalogs and always ended up disappointed. All I got was cheap toys from dollar stores.

I don't miss the old days. GCU is the only reason I ever cared about Best Buy.
