Dtoid's No Apparent Reason Parties for the month of July

3:00 PM on 07.13.2010 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

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.

It's Summer time! If you are like me, you enjoy taking some time in the summer to relax and enjoy some videogames.What better way to enjoy said games and gaming culture than with your fellow Dtoid community members? The Destructoid city group leaders from around the world have worked tirelessly to plan some events near you where everyone can meet up and have a great time!

Follow on after the break to see what NARPs are happening in Australia, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, London, Belgium, Texas, and the Northwest! 

Who: Dtoid Australia - FooLiz
What: Burlesque show, Trivia Night at Mana Bar, Medieval Tournament and Movie Night
When: July 13, 24, 27th

WOAH! Those are a lot of dates up there! DtoidAustralia has many events planned this month, all the way from the gaming related trivia nights at the Mana Bar, to the NVGR but equally awesome Miss Burlesque International Brisbane Heats. On top of that, there are plans to be uber nerdy and attend the 2010 Abbey Medieval Tournament as well have a movie night late in the month.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=][img][/img][/url]

Xenoblade X limited edition on Amaxon now. Will probably sell out very fast like usual.

Just got a Vita with a 16GB card for super cheap. What games should I be looking out for?
RadicalYoseph avatarRadicalYoseph
So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
RadicalYoseph avatarRadicalYoseph
Surprise, Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition has already sold out on Amazon.
Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django
Just a heads up, the Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition is up for preorder on Amazon. I think it'll be available elsewhere but you know. Nintendo. Love em but hard to find.
Clicks Clacks avatarClicks Clacks
Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo.

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
