Hello! I'm a Black Yoshi!

After meeting a lot of you at PAX '08, I stuck around. Mostly lurking, but trying to keep in touch. I recently had another chance to experience the insanity that is Destructoid live at Blipfest '08, and was reminded why I stick with this site. <3

Hello everybody! I recently went to PAX, and heard of a website called Destructoid. Seemed like an okay enough place for people involved in video games (like myself, he he), so I thought I’d share my experiences.

Let me start off by saying that this was my first time in the United States of America. Things are very different than where I come from, so before I went to PAX I thought I’d take some time to see the local sights…

… indulge in some fine American cuisine…

… become informed with the vast amounts of American literature…

… and do a little shopping in some fashionable American clothing stores…

Eventually though, it was time to go to PAX. The event every gamer (and game icon) looks forward to. Funnily enough it turns out that I wasn’t the only Black Yoshi there…

Not sure who those people behind us were though… Bunch of crumb-bums, camera whoring into our picture. I suppose I should feel flattered though that they wanted to be in a picture with us so badly.

Anyways, seems that not everyone was as welcoming to Black Yoshis. Seems some people already had black covered, and didn’t want us hoarding in on it…

I don’t care if she’s not happy about it, I didn’t appreciate how rudely she treated me!

Thankfully I found some nice princesses who appreciated me for who I was…

Boy, did they appreciate me. ^_^

Now here’s where this story ties into Destructoid. I went to a panel on how to build an and promote an online community, as I’m looking at getting something started that would be aimed at all the Yoshis out there. All of a sudden this fellow with a metal hat came around and sat down nearby. He took the hat off and wandered away, so I took advantage and got myself a nice seat for the panel.

Turns out that this helmet is the mascot for a website called Destructoid, and after speaking with a few people around it seemed like an neat place to visit. :)

All good things must come to an end though, and I along with a few other weary travelers waited at the airport for our respective flights home.
