PAX Avatar Adoption: Please adopt me!

Every year at PAX, Dtoiders from around the world hang out and play video games together. It's a wonderful experience, but not every Dtoider is able to make it out and join in on the fun. This is where the Destructoid Avatar Adoption Program comes in. Through this program, some lucky Dtoiders may be able to enjoy the awesomeness that is PAX vicariously through their avatars, so long as they beg and plead for one of the Destructoid PAX-goers to take their avatar along with them. Last year, I ended up going to PAX myself and took PK493's avatar along with me. You can check out our crazy adventures here! This year, however, I unfortunately won't be able to make it out to Seattle to party with all my Dtoid friends.

Pictured: Some lovely avatars who have been adopted!

So, without further ado, I present my application for the Destructoid Avatar Adoption Program.

Somebody please adopt my avatar for PAX Prime! I won't be able to see my friends or any cool games this year and it's killing me, but if someone were to take my humble avatar along for the trip, it will surely ease some of the pain I will experience by not being there myself.

If you didn't already know, my avatar is Balrog from Cave Story, and he's sure to bring joy and smiles to everyone's faces with his big, happy grin! He may even score you some points with some of the indie developers, if you plan to hang out at the Indie Megabooth (which you should, because it's amazing)!

Balrog enjoys crashing through rooftops, shouting his favorite catchphrase ("Huzzah!" which is a much better catchphrase than the one that silly Kool-Aid guy says!), and being a toaster (or a bar of soap or something). He is a loyal friend, a dangerous enemy, and an all-around adorable being. Please don't let him down by making him stay here on the boring internets while everyone else is having fun at PAX!

So please, I beg you, adopt my avatar and take him with you on your trip to PAX! And be sure to take lots of lovely photographs, so that your adventures will be remembered for years to come!
