Hiya, I am rawnewdlz [ rô. nūd'l s ] Same name across all interwebs and consoles.
Playing vg's has become my escape from the mundane ritual of work/eat/sleep. I no longer stay active or sleep often because I have a baby. I never had many gaming friends, but I hope to be able to catch a game w/Dtoiders whenever I have time and no longer have to listen to random teenyboppers complaining.
If I ever get to cross paths with fellow Dtoiders I wish to high five you for being awesome!
-Tetris on DS
-Shadow of the Colossus (replaying)
-Batman: Arkham Asylum
-Pixel Junk Shooter
Hanging out with the Destructoid community was my main goal during PAX East. I fulfilled that by 200%! For the most part PAX East wasn’t too bad. Here is a quick run down of what took place!
Note: Some of these pictures display a pose known as a “Bboy Stance,” it's a pose used to show how bad ass one is. Let's Go!
Thursday night some of us went to "The Publick House" for dinner. This place has an enormous beer list. Thanks to Zen Albatross I had a Young's double chocolate stout. It was like drinking a chocolate cake, I highly recommend trying it! Afterwards we all went to Uno's to meet up with the rest of the Dtoiders that were coming into town.
Friday we got to watch a rematch of a shark in a pie eating contest against one of the creators of P.B. Winterbottom
The Friday night concert was pretty good, I especially enjoyed Anamanaguchi's sneak peak glimpses of the Scott Pilgrim video game. Fist-pumping was inevitable.

Afterwards we all went back to Uno's which by then had become the Destructoid Satellite HQ. The waitstaff did an excellent job accommodating such a fine group of individuals.
Topher and the Tino
BROWN TOWN! CasualWeaponry, Hamza, Wex, Jonathan Holmes, Samit, Senisan
The Meat Cleaver, Senisan, and Foxhound
Saturday we gathered around to watch Tino almost beat Dragon's Lair
Some of us went to a karaoke bar in somerville and this happened
Necros and Analogue
Zen Albatross was droppin' beats on Sunday!
It was fun times indeed, and I look forward to creating more memories with my fellow Dtoiders. You guys rock!
I unfortunately had a case of the "Nerd Flu" when I came back from PAX, but it was worth it. I met so many amazing people I can't wait to see them again.
My good friend Senisan had introduced me to Destructoid back in 2006. I’ve been a lurker for quite some time, but didn’t sign up until last year when he showed me how active he was in the community. It was very refreshing to actually see that this site was different from all other gaming sites. It even spawned some of it’s own memes! I quickly became involved in the Dtoid New England events thanks to him. This year at PAX was something I could never imagine. Granted I was at PAX in ’07 and it was fun, but ’09 was just too awesome to truly describe. So I’m going to try anyway!
Note: Some of these pictures display a pose known as a “Bboy Stance,” I used to be a "professional breakdancer" and this just happens to be a pose used to show how bad ass one is. Enjoy!
Newgrounds.com had a contest to win a rare pink castle crasher. To enter you had to make an edible pink castle crasher. I entered with an 8 1/2" tall pink castle crasher, made of rice krispie treats, fondant, and love.
I won a rare pink castle crasher figure! Contest winners!
