It's been eight long, hard years to the day since our beloved robot overlord Niero first pressed the big red button and launched Destructoid into orbit. And what a crazy f*cking ride it has been so far! Mr Destructoid has come a long way since the days of sneaking into E3 wearing an air conditioner on his head, and we owe our success and the fact that we're even still here to each and every one of you wonderful community members. We love you all!
Dtoid has always held a special place in my heart, and that's due in no small part to the love and determination of our founder, Niero. So while he's out celebrating his own special day, I hope you'll join me in wishing him and his robot alter-ego a very merry birthday! And after you're done, head on over to our Forums and find out what it will take to get your very own 8th Anniversary badge!
Here's to eight(y!) more!
