Friday Robot Intermission, Also, shirts, GDC, SXSW, and Dtoid 1 year anniversary

6:12 PM on 03.02.2007 // Niero Desu

Friday. Happy hour. Lights out. Go tell your boss to shove it and that you're not working next week because you're taking a spontaneous trip to San Francisco to party with us. Summa, Ron, Colette, Nex, Dyson, and the man in the mask (yours truly) will be spreading love/diseases March 5-9 at the Game Developer's Conference, blogging everything our beady little eyes can see. We'll also be  meeting some of the most exciting names in gaming privately, so get your questions in so we can channel your curiosity and/or angst. Watch the blog for GDC 2007 articles, assuming working INTERNETS at the show and loaner crib.

If you're attending GDC and want to meet up at one of the parties please let me know that you're going and packing clean underwear. We'll also be in Austin next weekend for South by Southwest covering the interactive conference and every word that drops out of Will Wright's mouth, so now's probably a good time to break up with your girlfriend and start humping the monitor. Our stack of credit cards are looking for sponsors to chair our coverage of both events, so get your company's checkbook out and contact me like right now.

Speaking of soiled clothing, our limited run Also, Cocks shirts are sold out but we'll continue taking orders until this Sunday as promised and do one more run that will ship as soon as we're back. Grab em' here, they're still just 10 bucks. Huge thanks to everyone who put their money where our cock is -- don't forget to send us your action photos so we can post them in the community gallery.

Last but not least: March 16 is the Destructoid one year anniversary party!

We're inviting everybody down to come hang out with us and the Pro Gamer's League, have a great old time, and rape Summa. Two-thirds of the Dtoid family are flying to Miami for our big party at Studio A, co-hosted by Bacardi and sister site Come down for the open bar, listen to the sounds of Aaron LaCrate (must see video), fire breathers, ladies in shiny silver, and witness all the things wrong with today's youth. Here's pics from our last party: Nip Slip Edition

We're also giving away 250 tickets to Bacardi B-Live the following day with Paul Oakenfold, DJ AM, Camp Freddy, and a few thousand half-naked locals. Don't even think about packing a sweater.  You must be 21 and over to attend, click here to RSVP for the party.

Special thanks to Jeffrey for the Resistance jacket photos, Taylor in Osaka and Epileptic gaming for the robot photos, Crecente for having colossal balls, Gregor in Germany for beerbot, and everyone that sent in link tips this week.

Closing thought: The Robot Salesman (HL2, is amazing

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

For friends in UK that want a 3DS XL - 99.99 pounds [url][/url]

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.

Just got my Gwent physical edition. I don't understand special abilities - for example, Arachas have an icon with two knights beneath the close combat icon. Avallac'h has an eye in that same spot. Help? (I'm no longer a squid btw)

Happy Thanksgiving all! Load up on carbs and then get back to playing Fallout 4.

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

Does it mess with anyone else's head that when beating a SMBW level in Mario Maker the music doesn't do that little 'booowoo oop' at the end. [youtube][/youtube]

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]

So it seems I've locked into the Neutral ending for SMT IV and now I need to find specific challenge quests and complete them...? How (un)fun! Google is your friend - the videogame.
