Hello, this is the Destructoid New York community blog! It will be used for introducing the wonderful members of community events, parties and other happenings in the tri-state area that the community would be interested in taking part in. This is done for and by community members and is not official Destructoid business.
If you wish to be a part of the NY NARP group, please get in contact with us at dtoid.newyork[at]gmail.com.
With the year coming to a close, Dtoid New York has decided to meet for an end of the year celebration as we head into Manhattan for some good times as we travel around the city enjoying various activities throughout the day. (This means that there will probably be some karaoke session by the end of the night). If you are near the NYC area, please come out to hang with us this Saturday. PM power-glove for updates and additional information on where and when to meet up with the group

Also, with the recent changes to the facebook group system, which rendered the group unusable, I decided to make a new one. If you want to updates for future DTNY events through Facebook, check out this link.
(Note: Try to let me know what user you are on Dtoid when you signup for the group with a message.)
Okay, it's that time of the year. For 4 days this year, the New York Comic Con will be going on with all of the comic, movie, tv, games, anime and toys that you may be interested in the upcoming winter season. Dtoid staff members Dale North, Jonathan Holmes and Samit Sarkar will all be in attendance
On the gaming front, we probably have Max Payne 3, (Rockstar) Rayman Origins, Assassin's Creed Bro, Ghost Recon: FS, Just Dance 3, (Ubisoft) Street Fighter X Tekken, Ultimate MVC3, Dragon's Dogma, Dead Rising: OTR, RE: Revelations, Asura's Wrath, (Capcom) Final Fantasy X-2, Quantum Conundrum, (Square Enix) X-Men Destiny, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, (Activision) Skullgirls (Autumn Games), and a lot more.
If you aren't coming to the convention, we will definitely be doing karaoke on Saturday. So, join us in the city for some awesome Sonic theme music singing action.
If you are going to be in the city that weekend and want to hang out with Dtoid NY, contact power-glove via the Dtoid PM system and you can join us for some good times.
Next week, the DTNY crew will be heading to Dunellen NJ to the 8 on the Break arcade on June 17th for gaming, pinball, and the magic of 3 dollar cheesesteaks. We will be meeting at around 7:00PM, come earlier if you want. Who knows we may get a special moment like the Dan ultra that capped our last time out. If you can't join us for this event, please check out our the Google Group that is in our sidebar for update information on what we will be doing this summer.

[Note] This is a repost of our upcoming Blipfest trip with additional info. Single day tickets are now on sale and the full schedule has been released we will definitely be around on Thursday to see our friend Zen Albatross perform, and on Friday and Saturday as well.
Hey guys, I really wanted to get the word out about this event but this usually one of our biggest gatherings of the year. Dtoid New York is going to be heading to the Eyebeam for Blipfest 2011 concert series on May 19-21st. It is an annual event that we get a really good group for and for the first time, a member of DTNY and great individual, Zen Albatross, will be performing live during the three day festival. There will be plenty of other artists on the bill including Bit Shifter, Nullsleep and the group responsible for the Scott Pilgrim video game soundtrack, Anamanaguchi.
Three day passes are on sale right now and individual tickets will be put on sale in due time. I will let you know as soon as those go on sale. Please save the dates if possible and come hang out with us in the city during that weekend. We may be doing something during the daytime during those dates so if you have other evening arrangements, you can still hang out with a few of us.
Here is the basic info from the Facebook event page:
