Hot Mess: 10 Years of Destructoid party photos

There's something about the Mr. Destructoid helmet that brings out the animal in people. I've seen sheepish tiny McChicken-like boys turn into fearless crotch-thrusters, running up on stages and doing what three shots of Jager could not aff...

Golden Week
Welcome to Part 2 of my interview with Yanier "Niero" Gonzalez as we look back at 10 years of Destructoid. In Part 1, Niero and I discussed the early years of the website, its struggles, and its successes. For Part 2, I asked Niero about the future of this website, games journalism as it stands today, and the best game he's played since starting all of this.   read

Destructoid
On March 16, 2006, Destructoid was born. Our founder and overlord Niero has been running it ever since, and the rest is history. We'll be taking a closer look at Destructoid's legacy this week (including this multi-part interview with Niero), but for now, let's reflect on how badass of a month March 2006 was.   read

I can't remember exactly what it was that brought me to Destructoid so many years ago. It had to be an article, probably a review, that attracted me here. I know for certain it was the community that made this my new home for...   read

Sneak peek at upcoming Destructoid shirts

Sup, Dtoid peepers. To commemorate 10 years of Destructoid (March 16!), @Niero asked me to make some t-shirt designs based on some of default c-blog headers we created. I don't think I went too off the deep end with these, BUT it's alw...

Damn, look at Seymour shred Splatoon tunes on his guitar

Splatoon's music was love at first listen. Last year, Nintendo initially drew me to its then-unknown game about squidkids thanks in large part to the kickass theme song. It's now nearly 2016, and I'm not even close to tired of hearing that ...
