Dtoid meetups for the month of March

4:20 PM on 03.07.2011 // 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.

March is here, and its time for more NARPs! This month brings a couple of great gaming events that you can meetup with your fellow dtoiders, as well as some new groups! Recently, the community has started up Dtoid Mexico as well as starting a resurgence of activity with Dtoid Florida! So if you are in these areas, make sure to check out the blogs and get involved!

Read on to see what NARPs are happening in Australia, Chicago, San Francisco and elsewhere!

Who: Dtoid New York - Powerglove and Dtoid Midwest - Jon Bloodspray
What: PAX EAST (also, DtoidMidwest's post)
When: Mar 11-13

Holy crap its time for PAX East! As you may know, PAX is sort of like a "coming home" for the Destructoid community. Dtoid New York and Dtoid Midwest members both have plans to head out there. Destructoid usually has a great presence at PAX conventions, and we'd love to meet up with you!

If you are going to PAX East, make sure to check the Google group for all the plans that will be going on!

Who: Dtoid San Francisco - Tactix 
What: Anime Night, North Beach Carnevale, and Super Nerd Night
When: Mar 7 and 8

DtoidSF will be going to a new anime night at Rogue's, organized by some of our own community members! On top of that, Carnevale in North Beach seems like a good thing to check out thats NVGR, but sounds like a blast.

Be sure to follow DtoidSF on Twitter and Facebook as well as check out the Google group for details of these events and others! 

Who: Dtoid Chicago - AwesomeExMachina 
What: Ultimate Gaming Blowout and C2E2
When: Mar 21 and 18

Dtoid Chicago will be going to Ignite Entertainment again, and they are making plans this month to head to Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo! Tickets are currently on sale and last year's inaugural event proved to be a blast!

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.

Wanna ask a question for tomorrow's PStoid? You still have time! While you're at it don't forget to ask one for Riobux too!!

I caught a reflective mumbling about MGSV's open structure and how it doesn't sit well with me, to be published whenever I litter it with images.

I cast my little worm in to the pond for a topic to try to make a blog about today. I fish fish fish but nothing bites bites bites.

I cracked and bought Final Fantasy Dimensions on Android last night. Half off sounded like just the right price, though I wish this came out on 3DS or even the Vita but at least it gives me something to do on the porcelain throne!
