At PAX? Say hi to Dtoid EiC Dale North at his two panels

9:30 PM on 03.22.2013 // Allistair Pinsof
  @DtoidAllistair

Will discuss journalism, JRPGs, and probably corgis

Longtime game and music journalist and -- oh yeah -- Destructoid editor-in-chief Dale North will be available for your viewing, listening, and creeping pleasure at PAX East this week with two awesome panels:

Do JRPGS Really Still Matter (Saturday 3/23 10:00AM - 11:00AM; Archnid Theatre)

"From Final Fantasy to Chrono Trigger, Japanese role-playing games have played an integral role in many of our lives. But some say they’re obsolete. Stagnant. Even dead. It’s 2013: do JRPGs really still matter, or are fans just clinging to a stale genre that reminds them of their childhood? Join Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, Destructoid’s Dale North, and Polygon’s Alexa Corriea and Phil Kollar for a conversation about the past, present, and future of Japanese RPGs."

Why would you WANT to be a video game journalist? (Saturday 3/23 12:30PM - 1:30PM; Naga Theatre)

"Every year at PAX we have panels about how to break in to video game journalism, but are you sure you know why you’d want to? Is the career what you really think it is? Come hear some stories about the challenges and pitfalls of getting to know the video game journalism industry from the inside."

Pro-tip: Talk cameras, corgis, froyo, hair grooming and Atlus to get on Dale's good side, which will probably end up with him firing me and putting you in my place. Just remember to keep your cool. I know, I know: Catching a 3D, photorealistic Dale North in the wild can get exciting.

Also, don't forget to check out our Twitch channel and stay tuned for more written and video exclusive interviews.

Why can't we have more Lovecraftian horror games? It's such a great setting, but nobody ever uses it.

Best purchase I've made in a long time. This little remote controlled BB-8 robot by Sphero is amazing. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/bb8%202.jpg~original[/IMG]

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?

I'm farting right now.

Here's to hoping Nintendo makes mobile games as compelling as Pac-Man 256...

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

It is the middle of the night and Yu-Gi-OH is on TV. Are children with insomnia so common these days?

My hair's done did and my Teddie cosplay is officially ready for next weekend's Comic-Con! Do I impress you, Sensei? [img]http://i.imgur.com/ZNlOmMf.jpg[/img]

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Today at work, I made a reference to the DK Rap in one of my news pieces. Any day that I get to do that is a good day.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.
