Please allow me to reintroduce myself, my name is...



Hello, ladies and germs, this is your friendly neighborhood video game accessory coming live into computer screens through the magic of text and a series of tubes. For those that know me, how goes it? But for those of you that don't, which is definitely a great deal of people on here now, here is quick intro. I am power-glove from NYC. Yes, my username is based on the original NES accessory that was used to elevate the careers of Jenny Lewis and Fred Savage and not the power-up for Bomberman by the same name. I first started out as a guy who just happened to find Dtoid through a Rock Band video, a game which was one of the things that I became synonymous with here on the site, done by Daniel "Husky Hog" Lingen and Tiff Chow.

After a while on the site, I attended an tech show known as Digital Life. Over the course of the show, I had a lot of fun, and even got the opportunity to meet Gabe Newell but that was not the highlight of show for me. Towards the end of the event, I noticed an individual who was wearing the famous GuitarAtomik "STFUAJPG" shirt. I decided to say hello,, then introduced myself and talked with a fellow Dtoid member until the show ended. The fellow Dtoid member went by the username "Bronxbomber21" but you may know him a little better as Samit Sarkar, the main Sports man for the site. After hosting several 360 FNF sessions, posting countless news blurbs and doing tipster work (and a lot of Rock Band news), I began to become great friends with the users and the staff on Dtoid. This led up to my first major Dtoid New York event as Phist invited me to hang out with Lauren "Atheistium" Wainwright, who you may know as on of the people on the old Podcastle show, and the rest of the Dtoid New York crew.

A month or so after the event, I was asked by CTZ to help out with a very special project which asked certain Dtoid members to help organize and coordinate events in their local areas. This was the birth of the Dtoid City Groups and began my epic journey with the wonderful members of Dtoid New York. From NYCC to Blipfest and all of our parties in between, it has been an amazing ride throughout. I am proud of the way that DTNY continues to grow on a regular basis with diverse group of individuals who come together for one reason: to have fun. Please if you are in the area, please get in touch with me for some possible fun in the area.

Another important role that I play for Dtoid is that I am one of the people helping in the PAX event(both East and Prime) planning. I am the person responsible for the updates on the PAX blog and one of the coordinators of the meetup. So, if your planning on heading to PAX Prime, check out the Google Group and feel free to contact me if you want to hang out with group during the meetup and do what I can do to help you out.

Well, that's about it. I like video games and playing and having fun with them. Hope to see you fine folks and Jerry and Mike's event in less than two weeks.GET HYPE!
