I plan on attending the meet up and sent out word to a few friendly Baltimore/DC area Destructoid community members. Early responses indicate that there should be a few of us along with a couple Destructoid editors.

Oct. 18 is not a good date for me and the meet-up. sorry fellas. I just can't confirm yet, as we're expecting our 2nd child sometime around then. Hope you all have fun while I wait for some water to break.

I won't be able to make it on the 18th either, I work Saturdays and we're still just a bit short on people at work. I'll hopefully be able to make the next one though!

That is a shame you guys won't be able to make it to my last DC meetup. I figured I would tell everyone there, but I am no longer going to be Delaware -- you will have to call me Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. I have accepted a job at HB Studios as a project coordinator. I move to the great white north, at the end of the month to start making games.

Tiny

P.S. Congratulations Lurk

Looks like this will be a going away party for Tiny now. Is it safe to assume you won't be making any 20 hour drives to visit us in the future?

Too bad GenDV and Lurk will miss this one.

Cleaver and I are going to try to get up to the meetup. Been awhile since I have been to one.

Lurk, congrats on the baby. Hope all is well.

Tiny, congrats on the job, too bad for us. Good luck.

Good new. My younger brother has expressed interest in attending this event. He has asked me to RSVP for him. So I guess add a guest +1 next to my name. :) Thanks and I look forward to seeing you all again.

BTW: Grats to both Lurker and Tiny.

Thanks to everyone who came out today and for some making the extra time for a trip up to Arundel Mills. It was a blast seeing many people again, as well as meeting new faces.

A nice sendoff to Tiny who is off to Nova Scotia for work, and thanks for throwing some freebies out there late. Also thanks to Mafafu who kindly brought some Gamestop handouts, and made a nice 2 hour drive.


A big thanks to NinjaJ & BlackCoyote of Goozex for giving everyone who attended a free Goozex shirt, we shall wear them proudly.


As I stated to everyone at the event, we will be holding a Maryland/DC/Virginia meet every quarter wth the next one coming in January closer to the DC area. If anyone knows of a good location with a large enough space, feel free to PM me the info, or your AIM/MSN name or ask for mine, so we can discuss it in further detail.



Current ideas outside of White Flint are Northern VA and Frederick, MD

Look forward to the next meet!

Definitely good times, and thanks to everyone for the well wishing.

The top concerns on my mind, about the move, now include: (Thanks all :) )
1) blood tests to prove I am not an alien
2) car falling through the ice, and the insurance company salvaging it.

Thanks to G-nitro for putting this all together. I will try to make it down for the next one.

Anyone going to the Monday midnight launch of FO3?
I was perusing Rockville BB for an actual, functioning GH:WT drum unit (that failed). That ended up with the employee talking about how kids are chewing on the drumsticks, girls dropping the guitars for no reason...but ended up with the guy advertising the FO3 launch.

How GH:WT >> FO3 is connected, I'll never know. But apparently, Bethesda will be there with Game Dir, Lead Producer, Artist, and Designer. I wasn't into all the hype, but I suppose an autographed copy of FO3 could be useful someday.

This should supplement it:

I will be at the Rockville Best Buy at midnight (live 10 minutes away). I actually wasn't gonna buy Fallout just yet since there are so many games, but having the developers there seems worth it. Hope I wont be bored for long.

If you guys plan something, let me know.

Now playing: Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS), Overwatch (PC)

Made the trip up to Nova Scotia successfully :) -- Though the town is giving more of a stepford wives vibe then a "The Thing" vibe, but I am sure that will pass as I get to know people.

Anyway, thanks again for all the well wishing.

P.S. Has anyone heard from Lurk?

Just wait til it gets colder and the snow piles up higher than your house! ;) But otherwise, you might as well just find yourself a nicely programmed lady to settle down with.

Don't be a stranger to the board!

Glad to know the move was successful and a safe one. Don't forget about the CAG crew down here in the U.S. now.

As for Lurk, I saw him say on Goozex that he would be resuming life shortly. lol Guessing his newborn had him rather busy.

That's great. I hope you have a good transition up there. Don't forget to lookup Greg Sewart.

I am sure Lurk is busy as all get out. I know when I had my baby girl (no.2), it was that much more difficult to keep up. Just like someone told me once, one child, you and your spouse can play zone, two children and you have to go to man to man.

Oh, if anyone is out and about for the GoW 2 launch tonight, my band is playing the Tyson's Corner Mall Gamestop launch. Should be cool, I know we will be giving away a few games to folks that are waiting in line. Come up and say hello to a fellow CAG. Cleaver will be accompanying me to the show and we are going to see what freebies we can snag, lol.
