UK NARP - Pics and lulz of the first night

UK Narp this weekend was awesome, but where the fuck was Jim Sterling?

For those of you across the pond you should know, foreigners play vidya games too. And we can't make it to your fancy Miami NARP's so we throw our own every now and then.

This was a three day drinkathon hosted by Bunny Rabbit 2 in wolverhampton.

The first night had the most people but it was mostly drinking and playing Halo, the best gaming happened on night two and the best drinking on night one. You may notice the absence of the British representation Jim Sterling, he came down with a terrible case of Man Flu so we needed to postpone his death match with Wardrox until the horn of fenris sounds and the skies turn red. it will happen people.

Wardrox himself was absent night one as well due to being a n00b and a day late.

A few Dtoiders did turn up and overall we had a decent turn out, bout 15 people there the first night and 10 the second.

(Roll call - incomplete)
Bunny Rabbit Host
McSnowthe whole time
Daddy Gerplex and a friend from gamestation on the second day.
Wardrox on the second day
And a bunch of non dtoiders who live in the area and know us. If you are a dtoider and i didn't know your username comment and ill ad you)

The first night was an international effort, with many pirates and non English europeans.

/\Av The Viking, new to destructoid.

The night ended with a Halo tourney of sorts, no pics of that because by that point i was so wasted i could barely stand.

The set up was pretty neat, 3 HD screens one SD and 3 xboxes, only one PS3 though.

So far Microsoft is in the lead.

Most played games of night one:
1st: Halo
2nd: Crackdown
3rd: Portal

Night two, weatherspoons and the Guitar Hero off coming up.

About Seth338one of us since 1:13 AM on 10.17.2007

Turner, Seth Turner. Second year psychology major and all around awesome individual. Like morality games and RPG's but throw a decent story at me and i'll shut up as well. Raised on original street fighter and metroid, moved from Sonic to Mario and then from Golden Eye, Starfox and Toshingdon to FFVIII. From then on, well everything.

Don't like Halo. Do like Team Fortress. Only sports game i've played is some olympics game with fish on the Sega Megadrive. Not an FPS fan as a rule of thumb, like Half Life games regardless.

Play as many internet flash games as i play console and PC games.

Screw having a now playing list it gets out of date too fast.
Looking forward to:
Fable 2
Saints Row 2
Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness
And probably about other games that grab my eye

It was hard to do a top ten so i did the massive list above and weeded out the best, since i like doing those each will have a quote... some are very limited in script though...
Jade Empire
See my blog post on the subject.
Kang: "Next time, I'm placing explosives around them, explosives shaped like bananas. Stops thieves, monkeys, and monkey thieves all in one!"

Gao the lesser:"I have heard better threats from children."
Player: "You've been threatened by children?"

Master Li: "I recall your earliest lessons. You fell from 1000 feet during the walk of death, which, alone, was odd enough at your age, but you made short work of the walk of maiming and the walk of intense discomfort and tore your head clean off. I comforted you, well, your head, saying that you could just walk if off, because, you know, the cut was clean and then you would punch a mountain. In space!"

Age Of Mythology
Great RTS, a quirky series of mythical beasts and heroes at your disposal as well as some all consuming god powers when you want to shake stuff up. Stands out from the others based on how long i spent playing skirmishes, which i think comes close to the two year mark.
Nothing to quote :(

Breath Of Fire III:
Best RPG i have ever played, every character had a quiqe fighting style and personality, there was plenty to discover and maxing yourself out was a relativly easy task. So long as you don't give up from boredom during the desert your fine.
Ballio and Sunder:"No one has seen us in this form and lived to tell about it!" (Imagine as an anime fan this being the first time i heard that line?"
"A D-D-D-Dragon!"

Metal Gear Solid
One of the first and best story driven games i had ever played, great characters, interesting setting and gameplay and the greatest mullet imaginable.
Liquid:"Tell me! Did you like my sunglasses?"

Pics coming soon:

My Buds
My Self
