Adopt an Avatar: giving people Handys at PAX

   0
Well, this place has been all about the community spirit lately hasnít it? And you know one of the loveliest community traditions Dtoid members carry out every year? Thatís right, avatar adoption! The wonderful act of Dtoiders going to PAX who take the avatars of the less fortunate members who canít make the trip for one reason or another. Iíve been lucky enough to have had two foster parents take me on the trip in the last two years, Elsa and Corduroy Turtle, and both were kind enough to chronicle my avatarís adventures so I could live vicariously through them.

So I decided that this year I would forgo trying to convince you with an assortment of blatant lies and would instead show you what my avatar has gotten up to, what you can expect, and what kind of people you can meet if youíre willing to give a out a Handy on the sly.

And also make as many handjob jokes as possible.




Jim sterling was quite pleased when he received a Handy in the dead of night.




But Occamís Electric Toothbrush got a Handy in the middle of the street in broad daylight!




Max Scoville will pay good money for a quick Handy.




Tara Long got a Handy when she was least expecting it.




Danny Baranowsky, composer for Super Meat Boy and Binding of Isaac, was so flexible he could lick the Handy he was receiving.




Derek Yu, creator of Spelunky, got a well earned Handy to relieve his stress.




Even Renegade FemShep got a Handy. See? Bioware support all relationship types.




Carmine sympathizers were giving out free Handys to support their cause.




While it should be mechanically impossible for Juri to receive a Handy, Iíve seen plenty of Street Fighter fan art that tells me otherwise.




Mr Andy Dixon Wario got himself a Handy too.




Johnny Cage got a Handy right in the middle of the supermarket, that canít be good for hygienic standards.




Mr Destructoid can get a Handy whenever he wants.




Hamza got a HandyÖ..




...Two years in a row! Could you get me that hat-trick?




The cast of Mega64 all got Handys, the new guy with the dreadlocks did not approve.




All Dtoiders at the meet ups got a Handy under the table.




Of course Neiro got a Handy.




And finally, a picture of Corduroy Turtle giving Ken Levine a Handy.



So what do you say? Would you like to adopt my avatar and give everyone you meet a PAX a Handy? Giving out Handys left and right till your hands are covered in sticky white fluid, by which I mean the kind found at those hygienic hand gel stations I assume they have to help stop the spread of germs at PAX.

Huge thanks again to Corduroy and Elsa for taking all these pictures.

Disclaimer: If you adopt my avatar I hold you under no obligation to take pictures with gaming celebrities or Destructoid staff members or to do anything else if you donít feel like itÖÖÖ..though Elsa did send me some swagÖ..just sayiní.

About Handyone of us since 1:44 PM on 09.14.2009

Welcome to the blog.... you must be bored. anyway im Handy, I'm a student in Ireland and I'm here to talk about whatever may come into my mind....so not much then.

Lets see... Iíve been playing games pretty much my whole life, since my Commodore back in the day to my ps3 now Iíve been hooked. Actually come to think of it I canít remember a time I wasnít playing games. Canít say I have a favourite genre, I like to try a bit of everything, though I will go to town on a good RPG. Iíll have something to fill in this space as soon as my life becomes interesting.

^^^ Seriously, I wrote that like four years ago and still nothing interesting has happened.



Like everyone else on Destructoid Iím at a loss on what to fill this space with so I guess Iíll just catalogue my greatest hits, if you can call a loose collection of lists and borderline pornographic fanart ďgreatest hitsĒ.
