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.



Left to right: Me, Jim, Rey, Dale, Conrad.

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.

James: Today I was moved to RealityKings. Its a little more intense than working for Fling, which was the quasi-dating thing I signed up for. The guy sitting next to me does Flash design and all he does is pull images and videos of the shit.

Niero: You know, I'm a little hesitant to work for porn. Aside from the obvious reasons, how are you supposed to enjoy porn in your home after you work in it all day?

James: Yeah, everyone there is just like "it's just porn, whatever". I guess I'll get used to it.

Niero: And you'll come home and have to resort to porn about animals in food costumes fisting each other, as the normal porn will have no effect on you whatsoever.

James: Hah! Yeah, just like that Southpark episode. Don't be alarmed if I start bringing Japanese girls over to shit on my chest and torture me.

Niero: Speaking of Japanese weird shit, look at this game I just got. It's called Bobobo-bo-bobobo. Its based on a Shonen Jump manga and anime.

James: (puzzling over the weird box) What the fuck is this? What kind of weird studio makes this?





Niero: Hudson, same guys that do Bomberman. This afro guy walks facing the screen through trees as bad guys jump out of the trees to get him. You have to fend them off using these giant nose hairs, one per analog stick. Sometimes your friends are trapped in crates. If you rescue them they dance behind you. The soundtrack is amazing.

James: Didn't you have another game like this with Maracas?

Niero: Samba de Amigo! I have it right there. That game's very different though. Well, also different from other games too. I gravitate towards this oddball stuff.

James: I remember seeing that when you first got it in all Japanese, you didn't know what the hell was going on but you were enjoying it anyway with all the weir shit on the screen.

Why are you always getting these weird games?

Niero: When you have access to all these games you start looking for the most unusual shit as the normal stuff doesn't hold my attention whatsoever. Careful what you wish for, right?

It's kind of like the porn thing. Same principle.

James: We're lucky. But you know we're both doomed.

Niero: Yup.
