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.
February is the shortest month of the year, but that doesn't mean that the Dtoid community slacks off in terms of event planning. Regional groups from around the world are planning some great outings to places like gaming/LAN centers, arcade, movie theaters, and house parties. So in honor of the month that brings us Valentine's day, head to a NARP and share your love of the community with other Dtoiders!
Read on to see what NARPs are happening in Australia, Chicago, San Francisco and elsewhere!

Jordan and I have started a new game in our Couch Campaign, and it's one that I have been excited to play since we first began talking about the project.

And Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is, provided you think train wrecks can be glorious.more
