I'm droobies, a late 20's gamer and a collector of retro games and consoles. Currently, I've got 11 consoles, 10 of which are ready to play at will: Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, Dreamcast, N64, SNES, NES, 32X, Genesis, Master System, and Atari 2600.
I've made a couple guest appearances on RetroForce Go! and Failcast. You may know me from my "artwork" being displayed on a gigantic screen at the Destructoid Panel at PAX '08.
I'd like to preface this blog by stating just how freakin' cool everyone is that came to PAX '08 by way of Destructoid. It just further solidifies Destructoid as THE gaming blog with THE best community. I want to put my balls on all of you.
Picture time get! NAOW!
Serious Dyson digs the robot.
Amtrak knows the robot is everywhere (especially the bar).
Awesome Rio and Awesome Rio's Awesome Mom.
Wardrox reps 'dem PSTriples (it's written on his knuckles if the image is too small). Also, don't read his blog.
Wardrox's mohawk gets an upgrade.
Dan Paladin drinks white russians, just like The Dude.
And they will know us by the trail of empties.
Asian Joe will sex you up.
-D- points a lot, but in a very sexy way.
Spot the "Breeder".
"Shoe on head" spotted at Nordstroms.
I can honestly say that I was having too much fun to snap more pictures. I've got so many great pictures in my head, the digital camera didn't seem so necessary.
Onto obligatory part of the blog where I toss shout-outs.
Dyson - Here's to Disco Naps and growing old but never growing up. Marry me... to Amber. Always glad to be a Beatle, no matter the number.
Chad - Even more amazing in person. Chad: "I love droobies, he's my favorite." Me: "Did you guys just hear that!"
.Tiff - Great to see you again. Amber and I will have to make it out to Cali sometime to take you up on that drunken invitation.
Colette - Wonderful to see you, as always. You possess the looks of an angel with the mouth of a sailor. Every other word out of Amber's mouth when we were around you was "She's so fucking awesome!"
Topher - You were at PAX? Just kidding, hope you had a good time, and it was nice to see you again. I don't want to wait another year to just shake your hand, there better be some serious drinking involved next time.
