I was going to include all of this stuff in my upcoming first birthday/Destructoid world tour (wherein the world consists of the UK, Canada, the US and Australia) wrap-up post, but once I had finished writing that thing it was 8 pages and that was without any pictures. Seriously, Hideo Kojima is more concise than I am. Anyways, while Iím busy cutting that thing down into something more manageable I figured that Iíd put up a post featuring some of the cool swag that I was sent in the last while. Hope you all enjoy coveting my stuff! :D
First I wanted to put up a new picture of my laptop, which Iíve been getting Dtoiders to sign since PAX. Unfortunately some signatures have worn off, but shortly after PAX I was able to get a hold of a clear adhesive sheet, so even though some of those signatures faded a bit before I got it on the rest are now totally safe. Iím trying to find another sheet to protect the other signatures. But havenít found anything quite yet. Hang in there little black felt marks!

The next picture is me and some of my swag that has been arranged all pretty like.
Included in the swag are Detryís Dtoid secret Santa presents that he sent me (Ninja Gaiden II and Legend of Zelda), which are both fucking awesome games that I didnít already own. Thanks Detry! The Boo-Mario and copy of Dynamite Headdy I picked up while looking through some import/used game stores in LA with Naia and Zero Atma. The Super Metroid cart was generously donated to me by Dyson when I stayed at his place and we almost managed to beat it in one sitting with Topgear (Ben Perlee) looking on in amazement (fuck you Ridley!). The rest of the stuff I received from Colette and Niero just as I was heading to Australia. Iím not sure what else to say other than THANK YOU!!!!! :DDDDD Included in the package was a game gear, a copy of Legend of Illusion Featuring Mickey Mouse, a new Dtoid shirt (which replaces the one that I lost while I was in Africa), a Ninjatown sticker (which I think Iíll be putting on my backpack), and best of all: a Dtoid condom! Now that Iíve taken a picture of it I can go get laid. Iíll be right back...
I just want to once again thank you all for being fucking rockstars, especially the random swag bag from Colette and Niero; that was like Christmas all over again, but sexier and with more robots. While Iím at it Iíd like to publicly thank Aerox , Dyson, Naia and Zero Atma for giving me places to stay while I was in LA and SF. You guys made that amazingly awesome trip possible for me. Iíd also like to thank a number of other stupendous people for a number of other incredible things, but Iíll save that for my 1 year post where Iíll do a run-down of all the Dtoid related traveling that Iíve been doing lately.
I love you too Dtoid. I love you too :D
