Destructoid is referenced as the first of "big video game news sites" in today's paper (Joystiq & Kotaku come after Dtoid I might add ;p). Then later I think the article mentions Dtoid while discussing the GOTY awards.
I know it's just a reference, but still, it's something! In case you're wondering, the article is in the Lexington Herald Leader's new gaming section in the weekender that comes out every Friday. Herald Leader has a circulation of about 112,000 so plenty of people should be reading the article today.
It's a damn good article too, takes up an entire 2 page spread. Goes over all the GOTY awards, recent releases, upcoming, rumors, etc... I really hope it succeeds and he can keep the stories going every Friday.
