Jordan is a founding member of Destructoid, poster of seemingly random cute animal pictures, and tends to be shockingly inoffensive.
Drop him a line if you have a pitch, questions related to anything Dtoid, or just want to chat. For best results, send messages to either jordan [at] destructoid [dot] com or @DtoidJordan
Jordan does a live streaming show based out of Portland, OR with Dtoid's Conrad Zimmerman and his wife Katrina nearly every Saturday at 10:00am Pacific on Twitch.tv/Destructoid called Saturday Morning Hangover. No, they aren't actually hungover ... usually, but might as well be as they play through independent games of dubious quality for your viewing pleasure. Jordan occasionally does a podcast with a few other current and ex-Dtoid contributors, Zero Cool, as well. Hack the planet!
While many Americans are spending the day grilling, drinking, and hanging out with their friends and families, science is happening elsewhere in the world. Much of the Destructoid staff has peaced out already, so content will be extremely sparse today -- but you probably knew that.
We've got Chad's lovely little holiday-themed feature that just went up, and there's also a bit of news on the Final Fantasy VII re-release for PC and Fraser's review of The Journey Down in the queue. And that's about it at the time of writing this.
So, if you had hoped to be entertained by a decent flow of stories today, consider this a kind nudge to go out and burn through the day elsewhere; possibly not even on the Internet. Just a suggestion. Might I also suggest playing Spelunky now that it's out on Xbox Live Arcade? Alternatively, Indie Games put up a solid list of similar games that can be played without an Xbox 360.
If you are reading this now, well, thank you. I assume that means you are a dedicated follower of the dumb (and sometimes not dumb!) stuff we do. Or else you're bored off your ass at work. Either way, thank you for sticking with us. There have been a lot of ups and downs over the years, but I think we're on the right track, at least from the inside looking out. I'm feeling good about the future.
