Dtoid's community meetup plans for PAX Prime!

2:00 AM on 08.28.2011 // Hamza CTZ Aziz
  @CTZ

PAX Prime 2011 begins this Friday! Destructoid has been at every PAX since 2007 and each year the show just gets better and better. In fact, the convention center is made up of TWO floors full of games and entertainment this year.

Along with the games, there's going to be a bunch of panels and Destructoid is hosting two panels this year. First up is the "How to Run Your Own Gaming Website and Win at Life" on Saturday at 12:30 PM at the Unicorn Theatre. Then on Sunday in the Unicorn Theatre at 12PM is Destructoid Live with Nick Chester, Jim Sterling, Max Scoville, Niero and myself!

We'll be taking our group picture at the end of our panel on Sunday so make sure to wear your Destructoid gear then. Of course, we'll also be having our nightly meetups from Thursday through Sunday:

THURSDAY:

The Super Indie Friends Mixer!

Join Destructoid and several wonderful indie game companies for our pre-PAX celebration! The Super Indie Friends Mixer will see Hello Games (Joe Danger), Halfbrick (Fruit Ninja), Twisted Pixel (The Gunstringer), VBlank Entertainment (Retro City Rampage), Zen Studios (Pinball FX) and RedLynx (Trials Evolution) all partying it up. The mixer takes place at Gameworks from 8PM to 12AM.

FRIDAY:

Multiple parties/meetups will be occurring Friday night. The big one is the PAX Afterparty hosted by Fangamer.com with The Protomen. The Protomen and a couple other acts will be performing at El Corazon from 8PM to 11:30PM. Tickets are $15 for guaranteed access or you can get in for free with your PAX pass, space permitting.

There are a few other events and parties happening, you'll just have to track them down yourself.

SATURDAY:

2K is giving these ten Dtoiders the VIP treatment to play The Darkness II: TheRemix, Toneman, Clown Baby, Jonny, Swishiee, GrumpyTurtle, Nihil, LK4O4, ryaomon and Zeiss!

They'll be getting hands-on with the Quad-Wielding action and prizes too!

At 12:30PM, Niero, the founder of Destructoid, will be running the "How to Run Your Own Gaming Website and Win at Life" panel at the Unicorn Theatre.

At 8PM, Destructoid will be doing our nightly meetup at Pnk Ultra Lounge. Feel free to dress all fancy!

SUNDAY:

At 12PM, Destructoid Live 2 takes place with with Nick Chester, Jim Sterling, Max Scoville, Niero and myself! We have all sorts of entertainment planned for you, prizes to give out and some cool reveals too. Be sure to wear your Destructoid shirts as we'll be taking the group photos at the panel. 

At 7PM, Destructoid will be doing our last gathering of the weekend at Rock Bottom once again.

Weird brutal death metal song about Majora's Mask (Reminds me of Gorguts)! My life is complete! Lyrics in comments. https://profoundlorerecords.bandcamp.com/track/tales-of-the-majora-mythos-part-1

I SWEAR the Goddess is trolling me. I HATE having dreams where everything's finally okay with my life, only to wake up and realize it's all been a delusional lie. I'm starting to think this is a sign that maybe I should just keep sleeping forever... T^T

It's taking every ounce of power within me to act like a responsible adult and save for this instead of using a credit card to get it now. http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VRCLHYS/ Everyone, tell me bad things about it.

Oh boy, extra damage weren't Ike's only buffs this patch. They also made his n-air combo better, made his Fsmash better (sourspot damage and angle buffs) and increased the range of his f-air. Ike may be tied with Sheik for best f-air in the game now. :D

What's your guys thoughts on repros? I ran into these a couple years ago at a con and I just couldn't resist. I know there are some repro makers out there that reproduce official US releases, and that's wrong, but if a game was never released here?

There's people who defend WB putting season passes in LEGO games. Real talk for a sec, there is literally no reason a season pass should even exist, let alone in a LEGO game of all things. Preordering DLC is pointless. I'm saltier than I need to be.

Remember the Xenogears combat system? That was really fun. They should bring that back.

I hope Bloodborne goes down to $20 again, very tempted to get it. I've been using my Playstations a lot lately and want to continue doing that

So, one of the artists for SMT4, Yasushi Nirasawa, passed away very recently. Quite the shame, as his work was interesting.

Drive Any Track is wild, wild fun. Surprised I only came across it because of the steam sale, I thought I'd have at least heard something about it earlier. Can't wait to see how it progresses!

Quick thoughts about my first hours of XCOM 2: The new Sectoid is a bastard, Shen's daughter looks like she escape from Life is Strange, Tygan has a really cool necktie (i love neckties) and officer Bradford need a drink... a strong one. And a a hug.

In between work and, uh, work, I've been buying PS Vita games. Not playing them. Buying them. There are a whole lotta obscure games on the Vita. And a lot of them involve either dating anime boys or underage girls doing decidedly non-underage-girl things.

The good news: XCOM 2 is installed on my pc. The bad news: It runs about as well as a fat kid on ice.

Glad I can support the site again with HUGE since my life is mostly back in order. Curious though if anyone knows what happened to the Merch Shop for the site.

Give me an open-world game and I'll find a way to mistreat children and the elderly.
