An avid player of tabletop and video games throughout his life, Conrad has a passion for unique design mechanics and is a nut for gaming history. Conrad formerly wrote news and produced video content for Destructoid (including Sup, Holmes?, Office Chat and Saturday Morning Hangover) and was a regular host on Podtoid.
The mere inclusion of Rodney Dangerfield can vastly improve anything. Films, music, toasters, anything. In particular, the force of Rodney Dangerfield could elevate video games to the level in which they are accepted by the mainstream as a true art form, bringing together people of all races, creeds and tax brackets in peace and harmony.
After a year away from what's probably the biggest gathering of Dtoiders in the US, I'm happy to say that I'll be attending PAX Prime this year. I didn't join in on the fun in 2009 because getting across the country for a weekend of drinking seemed like a bad idea at the time. But something has changed that makes my trip a little bit easier.
Which brings me to the second reason for this post: I'm pulling up stakes. Next month, I'll be making the move from Phoenix, Arizona to Portland, Oregon.
Now, we know nobody in the area and there are only two of us to unload the truck. So, I'm thinking, maybe some of the wonderful people in the Destructoid community would like to come by and lend a hand. More like hoping, really.
If you don't have plans already for August 15th, maybe you would like to join us for some beer, pizza and maybe some vidja gamez once we get a TV set up? Oh, and unloading all sorts of crap from the back of a truck and putting it into a tiny apartment. Say something in the comments here and I'll be in touch.
