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!

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.
