The #1 community manager podcast on Dtoid!

Ladies and gentlemen, it's my pleasure to present to you the first episode of the new Destructoid community manager podcast, Communitoid!

In this inaugural episode, you'll be soothed by the sexy voices of European Community Manager Beccy Caine, Forum Admins Aaron "Mxy" Yost and Joanna "MOM" Mueller, Community Monster Conor "Jon Bloodspray" Elsea, and little ol' me as we discuss various community highlights from the week, welcome in newbs, and look back on some of our favorite Dtoid memories. EXCITING!

As the show progresses, we'll be opening it up to include other community members and community-members-turned-staff. Wanna be on a future episode? Send a request to aaron[@]destructoid.com! You can also record your own "cold open"! Just send in a "Hi, I'm [your name], and you're listening to Communitoid!" audio file and we'll make you famous.

Hit the jump for a run-down of everything discussed on this episode, and feel free to give us feedback in the comments! Assuming you like what you hear, you can subscribe to us on iTunes, Libsyn, and Feedburner, and follow us on Twitter! (And here's the direct link to this episode!)

Thanks for listening!

Spoiler alerts!

Jo spoiled the ending to Mass Effect 3 between 15:15 and 15:30, and Beccy and Conor spoiled A Song of Ice and Fire: A Storm of Swords between 42:20 and 42:50. Thanks a lot, jerks!

Apologies for the lack of Experience Points lately! I'm taking a short break from writing them, but don't worry. They'll be back soon enough!

Am I the only one excited to play the Forza Motorsport 6 demo?

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...
