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.

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. :(

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.
