Destructoid & Friends gaming calendar - Florida & Texas edition

3:00 PM on 01.09.2009 // Niero Desu
  @destructoid

Our dream of waking up the East Coast to gaming lives on, as Destructoid and various Florida-based gaming companies invite you tournaments, meet-ups, and parties sure to be more fun than your deaf cousin's ice sculpture-themed bar mitzvah. Check out what's going on all around South Florida and Orlando in the coming weeks after the jump. Video above: Community Vibes IV in February, baby!

P.S. Destructoid is turning three years old in March, and we're celebrating in Miami this year. Deets after the jump!

TOMORROW, Miami Beach

Noobie Games on Miami Beach will be hosting its first Halo 3 tournament of the year with $200 in cash prizes, tickets to the Miami Heat, and swag prizes to boot. Check out NoobieGames.com for more information. They've got a sweet store located on the corner of 39th and Alton Road; check out the flyer in the gallery below. Registration begins at 2pm, don't be late!

JAN 15, Fort Lauderdale

SFX 360 and GameWars present 2v2 Call of Duty 4 and Gears of War 2 tournaments at Boomers in Boca, over a thousand dollars in prizes! Registration is $20, space is limited. Check Gamewars for updates, as the schedule may change. SFX 360 is also giving away a free console.

JAN 16–20, Orlando

Remember the Halo wedding? Destructoid is making the drive to kiss the Chiefs and also cover Otronicon, held in the Orlando Science Center, where various classes, game competitions, and classic gaming movies will be shown in the evening. Very relevant to my interests.

FEBRUARY 14, everywhere

Valentine's Day, bitches. As a public service announcement, I'm reminding you hella early to start thinking about your girl/man/beast now, instead of going into a state of panic at the last minute and buying them an animatronic frog from CVS. 

FEBRUARY 21, Coconut Grove

Gamertag Radio brings you Community Vibes IV, a fusion of gaming and music. Expect numerous prizes, such as an Xbox Elite, Zune and games handed out every hour; open gaming sessions and participation in Halo 3 and Gears of War 2 tournaments hosted by SFX 360 & GameWars; musical performances by Mayday;  and more! Destructoid will be there hosting a $200 Street Fighter IV tournament (assuming the game will not be delayed) and giving away all kinds of stuff.

MARCH 7, Miami Beach

Have you ever seen a guy in a robot helmet jog a 5K? If I die in my 30s, you'll know why. We're officially introducing a Geek Circuit to the 5th Annual Ocean Drive 5K for those that wouldn't normally be interested in perspiration. Check it out, it's for a good cause!

MARCH 13–16, Miami (Upper East side)

HOLY CRAP, Destructoid.com turns 3! Since the economy is shit, this year we're staying in town and getting destroyed at our favorite alcohol-dispensing destinations. We'll be in our new office space and everyone's invited to the housewarming. If you were banned for trolling and still come down, we're still buying you shots. More details -- and a contest to fly one Dtoider down free to live the dream with us -- coming up.

July 3–5, Dallas, Texas

Don't live anywhere near Florida? How about Texas? Everyone lives near Texas, kinda! Just a reminder that ScrewAttack's first convention is right smack in the middle of the year and in the middle of the country. We'll be there to pop the cherry and also host some bizarre panels.

OCT 23–25, Miami (Airport area)

Later this year, Miami gets a proper gaming convention, Infinite Bits! The event takes place at the DoubleTree Miami Mart Hotel & Convention Center, and will feature all kinds of awesome. Destructoid will be hosting panels, tournaments, and giveaways for all those that come looking like they've showered recently.  More deets coming soon.

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(

Bought Firewatch this morning, played about 2 hours and started to get really invested into the story until I hit a bug that won't allow me to progress. :(

Fuck it. Fuck Blighttown. Fuck it's poison blow dart campers. Fuck the mosquito freaks. Fuck the fire-breathing bitches. Fuck the lack of visibility. Fuck it's pitfalls. Fuck the fact that I'm going back after 5 minutes of self-loathing.

You know what the weirdest part about having selective hemophobia is? Getting freaked out by an anime like Elfen Lied but being 100% fine with shit like this.

Nobody told me the boxed version of Revelations 2 lagged to shit. I was lucky to exchange it for Xbox money.

Objectively the best part of Heat.

XCom 2 is a good game that feels it needs to punish the player for not being omniscient. Still, it does have its moments. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXZvYRfVFuY

I've reluctantly sauntered back to Hyperdimensia Neptunia: Rebirth 2 after a lengthy hiatus. I'm really not feeling Broccoli nor Red. Maybe Red a little more since she's a waifu protector.
