About
I'm 24 years old and married, and have been playing video games for a pretty long while. I am employed full time as a Quality Assurance Technician in a manufacturing company, so I don't get in as much gaming time as I'd like these days. In addition to gaming, I love to read, whether it be comics or books, tinker with computers or electronics in general, and just hang out with good people.

Current Systems:
-Xbox 360
-PS3
-Wii
-PSP-2001
-PS2
-Dreamcast
-I think there's a Gamecube in one of my closets.

With PAX East fast approaching, I had a thought that I should hop back on here and re-introduce myself and make a confession.

Confession first.

It turns out, I'm bad at the internet. It's a very one sided relationship that I just don't respect enough. I use the internets for informational purposes, but I have a hard time giving something back. Unless its on twitter. I say lots of useless things on twitter and communicate well there because it's quick and easy. But really, I mean I fall behind in places like here, at Destructoid. I like to make excuses like work is so busy (it is) and things like that. Not that I was ever all that active here in the past... the only thing I did somewhat regularly were those paint-toid drawings. But I'm getting ahead of myself now. Here comes the re-intro...

I'm Greg. I used to go by GAPING MAW here on Dtoid, but then I decided to try to unify my internet ID to just one handle, and I changed it to rivalscho0ls. (It's better this way). I love gaming, technologizing, and music. I work as a QA technician at a place I strongly dislike, and I am taking classes in order to get out of what I'm doing. I graduated from Rutgers University in 2008, got married in June 2009, and just bought a house. We close soon, and I'm excited. I get the entire basement to do with what I want.

So, like many of you, I'll be at PAX East this weekend, and I hope to see those that I met last year and meet some awesome new people. Maybe I'll even get rolled into Nick Chester's food katamari again so I can redeem myself and not be the "quiet, weird dude." (It was intimidating for some reasons!)

Anyway, thanks for being awesome and I'll see you guys this weekend.








Here's my interpretation of Podtoid 130, or at least how I felt through much of it. I have nothing more to say here.



Oh, and Samit? Play fucking Portal.

I have to say, in my short time, that this was my favorite Paint-toid to draw, and my favorite Podtoid too. It did take fucking forever to draw though, but it was well worth it. Here she is:



I tried to cram an awful lot in there, and now my damn wrist is paying for it. Hope you guys like it!

So, I decided to bang one out for 128.5, and pretty much right after I started, I realized I didn't have much to work with from this particular episode. So, I made a lazy attempt at it, and I didn't even give Nick Chester legs. Hell, I didn't even draw him or Hamza, and I re-used the old Anthony, Samit, and TPL once again. I promise the new one will be all new drawings, but for now, here's this thing I did.



The Brad Nicholson joke was kind of a throw-away line from Jim somewhere in the middle of the podcast, and the Samit one is pretty obvious I think. Myeh. Definitely not my best work.

For my second foray into the world of Paint and Podtoid, I present to you Samit's Italian Friends, with less emphasis on Italians and more emphasis on War Elephants.



This is for njsykora and those who wanted a sequel to last weeks pile of magnificence. I have to say this blows last week's out of the water. However, my question to you guys is this: should this be a weekly thing? I love Podtoid and I have the time at work to get this done, so other than the pain in my wrist I'm up for it.

The Salemit Witch Trials starring The Perfect Lifeform (One word thanks to First Lt. Brad Nicholson), Brad Nicholson, and Samwitch Sarkar!



That is all.
