About
Hello. Welcome to my blog. Have a goddamn seat.


My name's Dan. I joined the Destructoid Forums four years ago. I'm a moderator there now. Come down and say things to us. You'll float, too.


An artist's rendition of my "Rape Genie" persona

"Nihil" is the pseudonym I use for writing / gaming on the internet. I came across Destructoid by searching for information on Way of the Samurai 3. Tubatic had the most comprehensive coverage on it I'd seen anywhere.

For that, and for leading me to this community that has changed the course of my life, I thank him.




I started gaming in kindergarten, when the most advanced piece of hardware I could get my hands on was a black plastic handle and an orange button attached to a brick. I used it to blow up little squares on a black and white television screen. A couple years later, I was molested by the girl next door after beating her copy of The Legend of Zelda. I have mixed feelings about the experience.

Unfortunately, over the years, my ability to maintain a passion for games has waned (as in being able to play through them start-to-finish). This is due to various reasons and issues that would be too emo to get into at this juncture. But even though my passion has waned, my interest in them has not, thanks in great deal to the extraordinary friends I've made during my stay here.

PAX is here, and what better way to celebrate NOT being THERE, than to post the rest of my pictures and vids from Saturday and Sunday last year. I had hoped I would eventually be able to tell the rest of my story, however, I guess I should've remembered the fact that I tell most everyone who knows me: I am a shit storyteller. I'm great at making insightful or retarded commentary, but when it comes to following through with something I started, I draw big ol' blanks right in the middle of it and pretty much give up.

It's a flaw in my character (one of many) that I must apologize for. But maybe after you're done going through these pictures and videos, you can find it in yourself to forgive me for withholding them for a whole damn year.

Let's kick things off with some ANGST.

SATURDAY












Thanks, Steezy. =D


Back at the HQ, Kraid brings the jams.



One of my favorites; either someone said something profound, or let one rip.


Couldn't be cooler if you left him in the freezer...


My antisocial ass took a little smoke break outside...



And came back to record Law giving us sweet melodies.

SUNDAY (bloody sunday)



















DESTRUCTOID PANEL, HO

















It begins, as it should, with a song...









Jim tries his hand at break dancing...



It doesn't end well...






Tara Long...


Groin-Kicker Extraordinaire



Ali and Gobun get their tickets to ride the Pain Train. Much amusement was had.




Knut asks the hard-hitting questions...


To which Niero responds...


The rest of the staff decline to comment...


I believe progress has been made this day.


Missing Clown Baby's epic beard...


Oi, it's our favorite Jack Shadow...


I remember when these two crazy kids met at MW-NARP 2010. Now look at 'em...

Fuckin' ridiculous how cute they are. <3

And the panel winds down...





Mmmmmmmm......

A fine back, indeed.

Om Nom joins the conversation!





When you get the chance to get homoerotic with Changston, you don't pass it up.

And that guy's totally pickin his nose. Just sayin'.




After eating pho with Chang, Jack, and Hei, I went on some more lone wolf exploring...






These guys tried to give away dumb paper hats. No one was buying, lol.





Eventually, just before my camera's battery died, I decided to take a smoke break and soak in the city for the last time...




Also, this guy looked silly...



Welp, that was pretty much my PAX last year. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's post-PAX '12 blogs. I gave the passes I bought for this year to Scott, aka CyricZ, and in return, I asked him to adopt my avatar and pick up some pins for me. Because cool kids wear pins on their jackets, or something. Anyway, ANTICIPATION!

I haven't been around much lately, 'cause life is full of bullshit and dick-kicking nonsense, but I'm hanging in there. And I have good news to post about in the near future, hopefully.

I be missin' yous guys something fierce, and PAX may not have been in the cards this year, but like I said before, I'll try my damnedest to make MAGFest.

Til then, keep shinin', you crazy diamonds.
