Dtoid's community meetup plans for PAX Prime!

2:00 AM on 08.28.2011 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

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:


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.


Multiple parties/meetups will be occurring Friday night. The big one is the PAX Afterparty hosted by 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.


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!


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.


Plans can change at any moment so it would be a good idea to follow some of the staff on Twitter as we'll be updating everyone if plans change: Hamza CTZ Aziz, Niero, Samit Sarkar, Dale North, Jordan Devore, Conrad ZimmermanJonathan Ross, Jim Sterling, Jesse Cortez, Mr Andy Dixon and Power-Glove.

When I was a lad, I loved this game something fierce. [img][/img] Anyone else ever play the tie in Small Soldiers games? Maybe it's nostalgia, but I remember them being not too bad.

Finally got my surface pro 3. Holy shit I love this little guy. And Windows 10 is better than I thought.
Putting more effort into iOS game review than African American history book report. This is not what Dr. King died for. Or maybe he did, I wouldn't know because I'm not doing the book report. Wha-hey!!

22/31 missions completed on Prototype, fun game with a ton of destruction but crashes on my desktop PC and barely runs on my dad's laptop. And it's distracting me from playing more Fallout 4. But hey, I can slice+disguise as tank commanders and that's fun

Alright so I'm looking for a few games for my newly repurchased DS. I'm already set on RPG as it's all I have pretty much. Were there any good puzzle games? I've heard good things about Professor Layton.
