Tokimeki Memorial game stuffed on biggest DS cart ever

It's not often when you hear about girls getting good service in the quest for virtual love, so it's really rather grand to hear good things about visual novels for the ladies getting some love and attention. That's certai...

Heavy Rain: Samuel L. Jackson wouldn't go very far for love

Recently, Sony sat down and chatted it up with a bunch of film-industry people I've never heard of. And Samuel L. Jackson. The topic was supposedly Heavy Rain, although I'm not sure the people being interviewed knew that. In...

Man and videogame are wed, face and palm meet again

You know, when I posted a video of Love Plus a while back to show off its quirky dating sim charm I thought that would be the last we saw of the game here on Destructoid. After all, it wasn't coming to the West any time soon ...

Cross SMW off the list of unique ways to propose

The hopeless romantic in me sort of cringes at the above video as I'm pretty sure that no girl in the world really wants to be proposed to while sitting on a stool in front of a TV while playing Super Mario World, but the ga...

An action game sealed with a kiss: Faith and a .45 details emerge

A little over a week ago, we talked about Faith and a .45, a game notable for its awesome title, interesting backdrop and the fact that it was being made by Total Overdose developer Deadline Games. Now there are some new game...

David is leaving Destructoid, let him give you some swag before he does
by David Houghton

Yes, it's true. After what has been in all honesty the single best year of my life by a very long way, I'm having to leave the Destructoid staff, as I've been offered a new job in journalism which is pulling me away from the site. Leaving Destructoid genuinely has been a very very hard decision to make for me, in fact at times it's felt like the prospect of cutting an arm off. This place has been my spiritual home for far longer even than I've been on staff, and it's given me more than I'd ever have dared to hope for, both professionally and personally.

I can't over-emphasise just how important my time at Destructoid has been to me. In under a year it's taken a guy from northern England who's dreamed of being a games journalist all his life and made that dream happen in the most fun and exciting way he could ever have imagined. After years adrift from my true aspirations, I'm now working in the world I've always wanted to be in, and along the way I've had the pleasure and honor of meeting some people who are now amongst my favorite in the world, both on the staff and throughout the community. In a very true sense, Destructoid has made my life, and while I'm now moving on to the next chapter of that life, Destructoid wrote it and every single one of you guys had a hand in that. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. 

But I won't be totally severing my links with Destructoid (How the Hell could I ever?). I seem to have noticed that we've got a rather good community here, and it's a community I very much want to stay a part of, so while I can't be on staff any more, I'll still be around as much as I can. Also, I'm now in the Destructoid Steam group (Steam name: Davestructoid), so if you ever see me online, hit me up for a game. I'll get you my gamertag when I get my 360 too, and of course, MySpace me up if I haven't already got you imprisoned in my list of digital souls.

But to mark my leaving Destructoid, I want to give you guys something to say thankyou. Over the last year, I've noticed a rather large pile of games swag appearing in my bedroom, which has now grown to the point where it blots out the light from my window and threatens to stop me even getting into and out of bed at all. So I want to give that pile of swag away to the Destructoid community, and that's exactly what I'm going to do. For details of the (admittedly variable) stash and how to get your hands on it, hit the jump.
