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

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 MiamiNights.com. 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, Machinima.com) is amazing

We need a Dtoid RPG that stars Mr Destructoid, Gardevoir, Macho Man Randy Savage, and MATT DAMON. The hub zone will be Nekro's dungeon.

*Looks at Battle.net* League of Storm Heroes. Magic: The Hearthstone. Diablo. Starcraft. World of Warcraft. Oh, pay $10 to unlock Tychus. ...Guys, is Blizzard evil? I mean really, despicably, EA-level evil?

The Witcher 3 is 30% off on GOG.com, if you thought it was a bit expensive at launch. You get store credit too.

Realized I've turned on my PS3 in the past month or two only to watch Mario cartoon DVDs. I really need to get around to playing something - anything - on it.

Listening to Studio Ghibli Collection at work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_WbO_LPXDo Reminds me that my dad really liked Howl's Moving Castle. He's retired military and serious most of the time but rather enjoyed its fanciful world.

Traded in a bunch of old Star Trek novels and other books at a used bookstore. Made $10 and got Tori Amos' "Strange Little Girls" album along with it. They made me take the William Shatner novels back. Smart clerks.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.
