Destructoid thanks 142,000 triggerfingers

6:43 PM on 02.07.2007 // Niero Desu
  @destructoid 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 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?

Steam rejected the DP refund. Meh, It's been a long time between when I bought and played it, don't care anymore, heh. Decided to play more MGS4 on PS3 and start replaying Rayman Origins on PC. Fun games that actually work.

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
