Every detail can be thoroughly examined in our gallery. We didn't miss a beat. Maybe we did. If we did miss an angle, let us know in the comments section.  pic by Mikey Turvey

Destructoid's HUGE panel coming to PAX Prime 2013
by Jim Sterling

Destructoid will be live in the house once again at PAX Prime, this time with a panel titled "The HUGE Evolution of Games Blogging." We'll be talking about the changes that have come to the way we talk about games, contending with AdBlock, and the rise of video coverage. We'll also be talking about how Destructoid itself has met these challenges. 

Niero Gonzalez, Hamza Aziz, Dale North, Jonathan Holmes and your old pal Jim Sterling will be on hand to talk about what we do, why we're doing it, and what we're doing in future. 

If you want to see your favorite robot's slaves at PAX Prime, you can witness our HUGE panel at 2pm on Sunday, at the Pegasus Theater during the show. See you there!

Half of Destructoid's readers block our ads. Now what? photo
Half of Destructoid's readers block our ads. Now what?
by Papa Niero

[Webmaster Dojo is a column where I share my experiences running Destructoid, one of the last sites not owned by a media conglomerate or venture capital velociraptor. I'll sling exotic coffee bean water to keep servers on.]

Relax. We're still friends.

Last month, I learned that the primary way we support Destructoid was quickly shrinking due to a browser plug-in: the ad-blocker. On the bright side, it brought some closure on why our ad checks never quite kept up with perky site traffic or growing bandwidth bills.

No, I'm not going to chainsaw your face for installing an ad-blocker. Chances are, though, you understand that blocking ads denies us some coffers and you probably feel a little bad about it, but all ads intrinsically annoy you. That's okay. Still, it is enough for me to say that it's a problem facing my site and other sites like it, and a few weeks ago, I started to appeal to readers to whitelist us -- that mostly failed.

Is asking for nickels the best way to future-proof a gaming site?
