- I've been nerding it up all my life, basically playing video games since I was a kindergartener and started watching anime when I was in grade school. It left little room for sports, music, and movies until I turned 20. Now i'm watching, listening, playing anything that looks interesting. I ran into this website in late 2008 after a friend told me about HAWP and ever since I've been hooked on Destructoid and it got me into podcasts. Listening to all the hits like your Podcastles, Podtoids, RetroForce GOs, and BitTransmissions. I never really enjoyed blogging and specifically updating stuff like this community blog until now since I started becoming more active on a computer. I hope to continue reading the site and maybe speak up since I tend to be a shy guy. Please don't make fun of me for my poor grammar.
Thank you for reading this stuff
I've frequented this website so much, but never have the chance to do anything fun on the C-Blogs. I hope I can change that this year and catch up with a huge backlog of games to play because of real world and responsibilities. My favorite game's are Final Fantasy Tactics, Magical Drop 2, Time Crisis, Tecmo's Deception, Fallout 2 & Katamari Damacy. Cartoons are the Bee's Knee's and enjoy a music video.
My blog post about the following events are fun photo's I took at PAX East to help draw and write this webcomic i'm trying to start. I had a great time this year having made most of the panels I wanted to see and getting some band photo's which I often never take. I tend to try and take snapshots from the background instead of asking for posed photo's from cosplayer's and other pop-culture enthusiast. Other than that I was just looking for expressions of genuine interest, happiness, and discomfort. It was a huge surprise to me that I got to take the Destructoid community group photo. All and all I had quite a fun trip in Boston and plan to make a more comfortable interview approach to a photo concept I want to do next year at PAX East 2011.
This was the starting point to my trip at the Fung Wah Bus station in New York
After unpacking at the hotel I following up Power glove, I come to find out that the Publik House was a meh idea and made camp at this Pizza Uno. Merriment Ensues.
Waiting in Line for the Keynote Speech
Waiting for the Keynote Speech in the Main Theater with Special Guest Major Nelson.
Major Nelson Lady's and Gentlemen.
After the Keynote Speech I set out to find my own temporary sumo bean bag chair.
I set up base finding a comfy spot on the third floor
My second location was going back to the main stage to see The Protomen and Anamanaguchi
Waiting in line again, but this time finding a nice group of people to play card games with
2 Player Productions Q&A Panel and Guest Commentary on two Penny Arcade Episodes
Robert Khoo and the 2 Player Production Team
After leaving that panel I went off looking for more trouble and ended up taking some group pictures.
Group Picture's GO!
Done, now back into convention grounds and catching up with failure along the way. I attend the Fail Now Panel
I later check out the expo hall to see the split second demo and call it a night with my duck buddy.
I prepare for my last day in Boston, going to four panels and cheesing it when the time was right. I'm out of time and money to stay for the rest of the weekend and I end up not saying goodbye to any of my Destructoid Community Friends, I miss you all.
The first panel of the day, "So You Want to Get into the Game Industry"
Second Panel, "Forcing Your Way In & Coming Out On Top: The Game Industry in Rainbow Color"
Third Panel, "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Game Journalism". Following is the mix up transition with some cool people, i think Samit is in one of these.
Fourth Panel, "Sequelitis Snake Oil: Quack Medicine for the Video Game Industry
After my last panel, I decided to leave immediately. Taking some photo's on my way out I try to beat the rain and walk to the bus station in China Town.
