Dtoid community meetups for the month of July

11:40 AM on 07.01.2011 // Jesse Cortez

No Apparent Reason Parties -- NARPs for short -- are a long standing tradition here at Destructoid. NARPs are parties hosted by Dtoiders for Dtoiders and everyone is welcome to attend a party. It's about playing games and interacting with other people all in the name of having a good time.

Have you never been to a NARP? Well now that its the summer you have no excuse! Destructoid community members throw and organize the best events. For example, look at all the fun that Dtoid Midwest had. They even organized a gaming tournament called "Destructathon" which I hope becomes a mainstay in NARP groups around the world.

Anyway, read on below to see what NARPs are happening this month in San Francisco, Phoenix, Europe, and elsewhere!

Who: Dtoid New York - Powerglove 
What: Dave and Busters
When: July 3rd

Dtoid New York is taking a trip to the Dave and Busters at the Palisades Mall. So come out and play some games with your fellow Dtoiders! Also, shuffleboard.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Duck Hunt was a trickier unlock than I expected. Jigglypuff, you are next on my list! [img][/img]

Yay, this arrived today. Nekro is quite happy, as he's been looking forward to playing this game for a while. [IMG][/IMG]

Dtoid mobile has apparently broken again. This is it. This how the dtoid ends. *black hole opens, dtoid disappears*

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

Why is every Quickpost now spaced out like poems with random amounts of stanzas that never ever rhyme?

Was anybody else here extremely disappointed by the ending of Assassin's Creed 2?

Just tried Fallout 4 on my PC Via my Cousins steam account and nope, it does not run for me very well. Buying the PS4 version it is!

You know who never took any shit from anybody? Dr. Blight.

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.
