GamePro.com recently ran a poll within their community to vote for their favorite gaming blog. By the will of the Ares, Destructoid had a landslide victory over our beloved Kotaku (and I've also heard AOL also bought and runs a gaming blog, imagine that?). Anyhow, an insider who shall remain nameless just snuck me the hard numbers behind the scenes. Get this:
... you guys totally landslided the GamePro Quickpoll. Out of 200,000 votes, Destructoid garnered 142,000 votes! While Kotaku and AOL Joystiq only got 58,000 combined! Just thought you’d like to hear that.
That is a lot of love, people. Huge robo-phallus thanks to everyone that supported us in our hour of need. We are lucky and privileged to be your choice. Picture me doing the cabbage patch at my desk to our theme song, because I am. Hardcore. Seriously people -- thank you. Even if it just means that one of you actually went through the trouble of hacking it and f*cked it up for everybody. (likely)
Moving on, Destructoid turns ONE YEAR OLD on March 16th (which is also my 29th birthday!) so we are having a very big party MiamiNights.com style at either Studio A or The PawnShop that Friday with a special guest DJ. More party details to come as we approach that faithful date. Additionally, we are also giving away 500 tickets to the Paul Oakenfold concert on the following night. Keep an eye out to win your very good reason to fly down to two parties you'll never forget (or recover from).
PS. If you think the Destructoid Las Vegas video was outrageous, wait until you see what happens when you swarm a packed Miami night club with professional camera equipment. It's like a male/female inner-slut detonator.
PS. from Ron Workman: To the 0.2% of you that voted for AOL Joystiq ... Please recalibrate your mouse because, it clicked on the wrong thing. To everyone that voted for us and Kotaku, thank you so much. You guys ROCK! Am I crazy or does anyone else doubt that this story will be stolen and put on TivoToid?
