Dtoid's community meetup plans for PAX Prime!

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.

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

After a summer of on-and-off casual play, I've finally reached lv. 34 in Destiny :')

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.
