If you're going to PAX this weekend, you owe it to yourself to take the new Mr Destructoid helmet for a spin! This thing is ULTRA light (you seriously have to wear it to believe it) and you will have a BLAST walking around the convention with it!

So what are you waiting for? Click here to sign up for a slot before they're all gone!










After seeing the Mega Man Maker (part of our Golden Archives) up on the front page again, it got me thinking: what's your favorite thing Dtoid ever did?

The Dtoid staff and community have come up with some fantastic "stuff" over the past seven years or so, but my personal highlight was probably the "real Dead Island experience" video our old Editor in Chief Nick Chester put together a couple years back.

Don't remember it? Here:



Now, I may be a little bias because of what happens at about the 2:40 mark (hint: that's my kid), but that video was just simple, lighthearted fun, and every time I think about it I smile.



Some of my other favorites were Jim's Geddy Lee 3DS video, Chad's wonderful E3 predictions posts, that month when Watdoom took over (thanks, Gobun), everything this guy ever did, and definitely this ("she said yes!").

Such good memories :) What about you guys? What's your favorite thing Dtoid ever did?

HOLY SHIT PAX IS NEXT WEEK!! We get a lot of questions about avatar adoption around this time every year -- namely, "What the fuck is avatar adoption?!" -- so I've put together a quick FAQ for those of you unfamiliar with this long-standing Dtoid tradition. This literally affects EVERY Dtoider -- yes, even you! -- so please read on to see how you can get involved!

What the fuck is PAX avatar adoption?!

Sadly, not every Dtoider gets to attend PAX. Whether they live too far away, don't have the funds for the trip, or simply can't escape for the weekend, dozens (maybe billions!) of your internet friends will never know the joy of playing videogames in the rain (because Seattle).

For these poor souls, we have the PAX Adopt-an-Avatar program! By harnessing the power of paper and ink, adoptees are able to vicariously enjoy the glory that is PAX no matter what their situation! Their avatars will mingle with Internet celebrities, wrap their thin, papery hands around the hottest new releases and upcoming games, and drown their pulpy livers in drink with the Dtoid staff and community (avatars must be 21-or-older to imbibe alcohol). Pretty neat!

So how does it work? It's pretty simple, really...

I can't make it to PAX. How do I get my avatar adopted?

All you have to do is ask! If you're unable to attend but love the idea of living vicariously through one of your Dtoid compatriots, just post a blog here in the Cblogs or start a thread over in the Forums detailing why yours is an avatar worth adopting! Then, assuming a loving parent-to-be comes along and offers you a new home, you'll provide them with a high-resolution copy of your avatar (something that will look good printed out) and cross your fingers that they'll love you like their own!

bbain has already gotten the ball rolling; follow his example if you're stuck on what to do!



What can I expect if my avatar is adopted?

The level of involvement and creativity is different for each "parent", but here are some possibilities:

You'll be in a lot of pictures.

This one is pretty much a given. Adopting an avatar is a great excuse for people to bug Internet celebrities for their picture. "Hey, you're famous internet celebrity Jonathan Holmes! Could I take my picture with you? You know... for the avatar?"

You'll see said pictures in a recap blog or forum post.

Again, this one is pretty much a given. Half the fun of adopting an avatar comes with recapping the events of the weekend in a post-PAX post for all of Dtoid to see. (Here's an example of one I particularly enjoyed. Individual results may vary!)

Other things might happen.

WHO KNOWS?! The only guarantee is that everyone involved will have a blast!



I'm going to PAX, and I really want to adopt so-and-so's avatar. What do I do?

Tell them! Just send them a PM and work out the details! Then, once you're both on the same page, simply print out a copy of their avatar and bring it with you to PAX! Take them with you everywhere you go, and try to be as creative as possible... but most of all, HAVE FUN!

And that's all there is to it! If you have any further questions just ask here in the comments. And for those of you unable to attend PAX and want your avatar adopted... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Your would-be-parent is waiting!










Now that Chilly's taken over FNF, I feel like there's a giant void inside me that needs filling. I mean, I need SOMETHING to keep me occupied once fapping's rubbed my pud raw and my iPhone's battery has died, leaving me to poop in silence.

So here, have some Skullgirls PC beta keys (redeem via Steam):

This image is only intended to show Mikey's style. Our doodles will be bigger (since there won't be so many of them) and interacting with one another :)

UPDATE 2: Check Mikey's blog for more info and some concept art!

UPDATE: Everyone who has posted a pic/weapon choice in the forum thread should have received a PM from me. If you haven't, please PM me and let me know! And if you haven't submitted your face/weapon ideas yet, do it now! You only have until August 9th!

Friday Night Fights has just commissioned a new blog banner from none other than Mikey Turvey, and YOU have the chance to be on it!

That's right, for just $10, you'll get a Lil' Doodle version of yourself (sporting your choice of weapon) which will be featured on the official Friday Night Fights banner for the rest of eternity. Here's an FBI mockup of what mine might look like:


Big fucking gun

Sound like something you might be interested in? Of course it does! To sign up, just head on over to the forums and post a pic of yourself along with your favorite weapon. (I'll PM people payment details from there.) Once Mikey's received the list of names, photos, and weapon choices, he'll draw a 1000x450 banner featuring all of us fighting each other. Bad. Ass.

So who's in?! You have until the end of the day on Friday, August 2nd to get your name on the list, after which Mikey will begin work on what's sure to be his masterpiece.

Yay!

I created the #HolmesHole you see above as an early birthday present for Jim (I'm sure you can figure out why), but the moment I posted it to the Podtoid Facebook group the community embraced it with open mouth. So far we've seen a HolmesHoleInOne, a DoughnotHolmes, a XenoHolmes, a WillemDaHolmes, and more.

So now I put the question to you, fair Dtoiders: what's in Jonathan Holmes' mouth?

(Keep it safe for work, please!)
