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.
-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.
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.
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.
