About
Hi, I started Destructoid. Ever heard of it?



Destructoid used to be my tiny personal blog on the web, and now it's grown into this crazy monstrosity of a gaming community. Needless to say, I'm proud of what we've done and optimistic we can do a whole lot more. I've been at this with all my heart since 2006. I really love what I do, and hope you enjoy our writers' work.

You can learn about the history of Destructoid on Wikipedia, there's a pretty nice article about some of the things we've done in both editorial and charity work.

As for me, I'm pretty busy working on the future version of our site most of the time, so unfortunately I don't get to write as much as I would enjoy doing. I do go outside sometimes. The best thing I've ever done is volunteer. I didn't mean to dress like Luigi, it just kinda happened.



My primary job now as publisher is to keep the editorial team happy and build new features for you guys, our readers. I'm also one of the site's front-end programmers, so I'm always doing stuff behind the scenes. It's a lot of fun for me to switch jobs around the company and do a little bit of everything. I draw inspiration from a few places you may have heard of:



Thanks for checking out my blog today! I realize you have many kitten web sites to visit today, so I appreciate you strolling through my site and supporting what we do.

Finally, I get Dale to do a Snacktaku while senior engineer James reviews 3DS Bass Fishing game. They were baked by GameTrailers' artisan chef and producer Jeremy Hoffman.

I don't know.













Atlus stopped by today to show Dale some new games, but more importantly John Hardin brought us Choco Tacos and Tecate.

Best. Job. Ever.

While your Dtoid engineering team was patching a few nasty problems, Hamza was out networking at GDC night. This rare video documentary captures a wild Hamza actually eating unhealthy food, as he needs to consume something that actually has calories in it if he's going to write up whatever the hell he saw before faceplanting from all the free drinks.

Also, you don't wan tot miss this tweet from Ken Levine:



Fantastic.

Has everyone seen this video yet? It features a younger version of our beloved podcast host Jonathan Holmes before he got old bald and tired, tired, tired, tired.

More importantly, I need this video embedded on a web page for another project I'm working on. You are all now part of my elaborate scheme. All will be revealed soon.
