SF Worldwide NARP Recap

   0
Hey guys!

Its been about a week since the worldwide NARP was held, and yes, its taken that long to recover. So many good times were had that night that we wanted to share some stories and pics with the greater Dtoid community! South van Awesome was the place to be in San Francisco that night, since the whole house was open to NARPage.

For a little description of the place, South van Awesome (SoVa) consists of two apartments in the same house full of Dtoid community and friends of Dtoid. The NARP at SoVa was split into two areas, Upper SoVa had fighting games on 360, classic Atari and NES games, as well as PS3 setup, while Lower SoVa was home to Rock Band on a projector, beverages, and a Wii setup. All in all, this was a very awesome and gaming centric party, where there was always an available console to play games on.

And many games were played! One of the most visited consoles was the Atari, for the purpose of playing Halo 2600 and Custer's Revenge. Yes, Custer's Revenge. In fact, early on, DtoidSF decided to hold a retro game contest to see which community member would get the highest score. Wired|GameLife's Chris Kohler had the highest score for a while, but our own CTZ quickly beat his score on only his second try.

He's a natural.

That score was largely untouched until one moment, late at night, when Crimeminister (host of Dtoid's Communicast) beat his score to the cheers of the crowd and became the Rape King of the NARP. With this title came some swag, which included a Dtoid "Become T-shirt", Puzzle Quest gem, and a copy of Hello Kitty Online. Jealous much?


The final high score for Custer's Revenge

Besides classic retro games, the DtoidSF crew spent lots of time playing more modern games, such as SSF4, Super Smash Bros Brawl, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, not to mention the constant Rock Banding that was happening throughout the entire night. Yours truly ended up passing out fairly early, but from what I heard, the partying kept going until 5 am, when everyone crashed on the various floors. (Sorry for locking your stuff in my room Manic Maverick!)

This was by far once of the most well attended and fun NARPs this year, and we had a blast organizing it. Thanks to all that helped make this NARP a huge succes! Special thanks also goes out Avery Wong and MattyP for taking great photos of the event, and to Nick Hutchins for the video work which will be posted up soon! Check below for some pics, but if you want to see the hundreds of other pics, go to Avery's site here

Welcome to the Destructoid San Francisco group. This blog is meant for all Dtoiders that are in or near the San Francisco area. The purpose here is to set up community events such as NARPs and any type of get together like conventions, cons, industry events, etc. This is done for and by the community because sometimes, just talking to each other on the Internets isn't enough.

If you want to be added to the friend's list or want to set up some kind of party/event, then please just PM me.
