Dale North is Destructoid's new Editor-in-Chief

You may have heard last month, but it's official as of today, October 3: I am taking over as Destructoid's Editor-in-Chief.

What happened to Nick Chester? Today he should be in Boston, starting his first day of work at Harmonix. His dream job. I'm really sad to see him go, as he was a great boss and friend. Covering events with him was never not hilarious, so I'll miss that. But he handed the torch to me, and I'm happy to take it.

I bet you're thinking it's going to be all corgi headers and strategy role-playing games from here on out, aren't you? [Niero put the corgi picture up for the logo!] Nope. I'm not looking to make big changes -- don't mess up a good thing, right? The core team is still as focused as ever on bringing you as much content as we can daily, and I will do my best to guide them. But we hope to find more ways of serving you better, Destructoid. I've got some good ideas in the works, but if you have any requests, please let me know. This is your site, and what we do here is for you.

It's really amazing. I started off here sweeping up cat hair and folding towels about 6 years ago, and now I'm running the whole show. I know that I'm very, very lucky to be writing for the world's best gaming website with the world's best co-workers, serving the best (and craziest!) readership on the internet. If I tried to count my blessings right now I'd just become dizzy and pass out...

...and then I'd need corgi face licks to wake up.

[Thanks so much to Jim Sterling for the amazing header image.]

 

Thanks for all the kind words on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, email and everywhere else. You guys are the best.
