GDC '09: Destructoid knows how to party

The Game Developers conference has come and gone, and Destructoid has been working hard to keep you up-to-date with all the latest news....

...but look, Destructoid also drinks. And therefore I bring you pictures of how Destructoid likes to get down!

On Friday, Destructoid decided to have a GDC Awesome Karaoke Party at Annie's Social Club...I arrived at 7:00 PM with Naia and met up with Dyson, Nick Chester, R3y, and Dale North. As the guests arrived and the drinks started flowing, the singing commenced. Here are some of the song choices: Naia and I sang "You Oughta Know"....Ben PerLee sang "Stacy's Mom". Dale North introduced us to "I Believe I Can Fly" complete with inserting the word "bitch" throughout the song. Rev Anthony gave us a great rendition "Don't Stop Me Now". Nick Chester made me cream my pants with his awesome singing skills. And of course, I sang "Billie Jean" complete with fedora flipping and moonwalking on the stage :D :D

Later on in the night, CliffyB and the Mega64 guys showed up. I didnt get a chance to talk to either as I was A) really drunk and B) kinda too busy being a karaoke star! Tia-Marie, the community manager for Justin.tv actually recorded my performances, so if I get a hold of them, I'll be sure to pass them your way :P

Anyway here are some pictures!

Jonathan Ross denies any knowledge of this happening...he's lying.

Lots of us stayed at the party until 4:00 AM, at which point we took a cab back to my place. Suff0cat, Bleach Boy and I attempted to watch Zombie Strippers and ended up passing out at 6:00 AM.

All in all, it was an epic weekend, and further cements the fact that Dtoid knows how to party. I had a great time and cant wait for the next Dtoid get together! <3

About Jesse Cortezone of us since 4:34 AM on 01.13.2007


I am a Ph. D. chemist from the University of California, Berkeley. I have been playing videogames since as long as I can remember! My past favorite games include Secret of Mana, TMNT: Turtles in Time, the Resident Evil series (Jill is SUCH as master of unlocking), FFVII, Smash Bros Melee, and many others.

I've definitely gone through phases in my gaming "career". I used to LOVE fighting games in the time of Tekken Tag and Marvel vs Capcom II (my favorite fighting game), but now I find myself drawn to the more story driven games, and very recently, the music games....:)

But....fighting games are making a comeback! SFIV! MvC3! BlazBlue! Beware everyone, Tactix has put a quarter on the screen and is challenging you for battle!

It was mere chance that brought me to Destructoid back in early 2007, and through it all I've stayed because of the great writing staff, a community that cares, and lots of new internet and IRL friends. Destructoid has changed my life. True story.
