Goodbye, Destructoid

4:00 PM on 11.10.2012 // Chad Concelmo


As some of you may or may not have heard, this is officially my last day with Destructoid.

Man ... I can barely type that without getting upset.

I am starting a new job next week at GolinHarris as a writer for Nintendo. It is an absolute dream come true, but also means that I have to leave a place I love. This website.

Destructoid has completely changed my life for the better. Every single person involved with this site has made me a better person. I am going to miss each and every one of you.

My first idea for this post was to make a top ten list about my favorite moments with Destructoid. From The Memory Card to RetroforceGO!; from making E3 predictions to "Cut that shit!" (ask me about this amazing story at PAX). There have been so many great moments, that listing ten would have been easy.

But when I thought about it: if I really sat down and made a list of my favorite moments with Destructoid, it would only include one item:


It's true.

Every single second I was with Destructoid for the last six years has been perfect. I can't think of a single moment that didn't make me the happiest I have ever been.

Every time I got to write an article and share it with the world I was happy.

Every time I got to work with my fellow editors I was happy.

Every time I got to hang out with some of the most incredible community members this world has ever known I was happy.

Heck, just saying I was lucky enough to have been a part of this amazing site for all these years makes me the happiest person of all time. AND SO RIDICULOUSLY PROUD!

I am honored to have been here. I am honored to see my name alongside all the other editors, contributors, and community members that have ever been a part of Destructoid.

I am not kidding when I say this place changed my life. I am a better person because of all of you. So thank you for that. Thank you for everything. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I can genuinely say I love Destructoid more than dolphins.


More than dolphins.

I love you all. Thank you for making these last six years the best of my life.

Aaaaand ... now I am crying.

I love you, Destructoid. I will never forget you.


A special thanks to Niero. I love you more than words. Thanks for giving me a chance and changing my life.

Taking a break from Fallout 4 to try out Twitch Creative. Catch me painting Chun-Li while listening to an eclectic mix of Alex G, DJ Shadow, and Modest Mouse. [img][/img]

So far from first impressions of my Freedom Planet indie box its 100% more worth it than lootcrate. Whereas lootcrate you get a bunch of stuff you may or may not like, indie box gives you indie games, and stuff related to that game, such as the soundtrack

When one game is rated 7.4 and another 7.6, Are you telling me one game is 0.2 worse than the other. WHAT!?!

I think Microsoft takes the cake for worst console updates. The XBone UI is worse and the fucking controller had an update. What the hell has gaming become?

Well, that's a wrap for the Bloodborne DLC. I liked it. More thoughts and maybe spoilers in the comment section.

a rainy afternoon, and too sleepy for games. Time to go to the animal shelter and try not to fall asleep, surrounded by kittens.

Community Question: Following from yesterday's Community Question, how would you feel if reviewers began assigning two scores to a game? One specifically for the technical aspects/performance of the game, and the other for their own personal enjoyment?

I went back to Persona 4 Golden this weekend, asked Chie to be my girlfriend but then accidentally maxed out my social link with Yumi, changed my relationship status to "It's Complicated" on Personabook. [img][/img]

You know what Fallout 4 mod I want to see? One to fix the interior lightning. It's like the silliest thing to get fixated over, but I can't seem to ignore how white and bright some of those inside lights are.

I wish the Squid Girl outfit was still a dress for boys. I want to live through my Inkling boy and be a cute girly-man, dammit. [img][/img]

Well, it seemed like for two seconds people were finally going to give Star Fox a fair shake, but nope! GameXplain's YouTube audience seem pretty insistent that it's just a Star Fox 64 clone down to the graphics. Sometimes I just don't understand peopl

I don't think it will happen, but if the NX is turns out to be a VR device, I will be the saddest boy in the milky way.
