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.
According to Jonathan Coulton, the month of May brings interesting outdoor recreational activities. In the same spirit of the month, Dtoid Regional Groups from all over the world are making plans to meetup at various events for gaming, movies, and all around great times. As a community, Dtoid just keeps growing, as the community is hoping to reintroduce two new groups, Dtoid Southeast and Dtoid Toronto.
Read on below to see what NARPs are happening in the Midwest, New York, Australia and elsewhere!
This month, members of Dtoid Australia will be going to the usual Mana Bar trivia nights, as well as having a movie night at the house of BLiz in honor of Zombie Awareness month. However, they will also be attending a Miss Burlesque show which seems awesome!
Be sure to follow Dtoid Australia on Twitter and Facebook as well as check out the Google group for details of these events and much more!
Dtoid New York is headed to Blipfest 2011! The guys in DtoidNY call Blipfest one of the largest gatherings of the year, and this year is extra special. For the first time, Dtoider Zen Albatross will be performing during the festival, so you should totally go out and support him!
More information can be found in the emailer, so check it out!
It may not technically be in May, but this is one epic NARP and one that needs planning. In June, Jon Bloodspray will be hosting the Midwest NARP 2011. Word on the blog-o-sphere is that the NARP last year was too epic for words. So if you live in the area, or even just want to fly out to visit, let them know!
The month of May brings the semi-annual BaltiNARP at Procyon's house. This gathering will boast at least 7 TV's and monitors with lost of classic games. Changston might even be on hand with some of his amazing cooking!
That's all for this month! Make sure to check our our city group post from earlier this month for a list of a couple established community groups. More and more keep springing up, so if your area isn't represented, and you'd be interested in heading a group, email me at [email protected]

If you haven't played the game, keep your eyes on this one. It's the very definition of an underrated title. Though I'm not sure what'll happen to the remake that was being shown...El Dango My opinion on Tomba has changed, now I dig it again. Stay tuned for updates.techsupport MGO is a blast and after playing for a few hours as each class, I'm glad I stuck with Infiltrator.CblogRecaps So assuming the terrible blog tools functions correctly, soon there may be a nefarious call to arms. So keep an eye out and hope there isn't a typo due to light-grey on white background text.Jiraya Gonna have a date tonight ? Here's a song for you.
And yes, this is video game related!Nathan D "Everlasting. True love. I am yours." -Rule of Rose T^TShinta MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.Mike Martin Fuck Insecticonsnanashi they pooped in my food they pooped in my food they pooped in my food they pooped in my food https://youtu.be/t-mKHCMhkEURobo Panda Z I have been accused of the greatest of crimes - cookie snobbery.KyWii Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school.

Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!OverlordZetta Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?VIRGO Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game. gajknight Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go. CJ Andriessen My local Best Buy is drowning in Marth & Dark Pit amiibo
