Get yourself into the latest James Bond game

A few weeks ago Activision announced that they were releasing a new Bond game, 007 Legends, this fall to coincide with the release of the new Bond film, Skyfall and Bond's 50th anniversary. I totally missed the announcement as did...

The Network Round-Up: I Am In Control Day

Ready to get some history laid one you? In 1981 on this day President Reagan was shot. While he was in the hospital then Secretary of State Alexander Haig uttered the words "I am in control here." The media took off with it and Haig was ...

The Network Round-Up: The day Coke was invented

Today's holidays were a bunch of suck so I've gone with a historical fact. On this day in 1886 Coca-Cola was invented. In case you didn't know, the secret recipe for Coca-Cola is totally top secret. In fact the awesome people over at Thi...

The Network Round-Up: Something on a Stick Day

Here's a day I can get behind. Put something on a stick and it's instantly better. It just is. In the past you could only get things like hot dogs and corn on a stick, but these days daring chefs are putting all sorts of stuff on sticks....

The Network Round-Up: Wha's in a name?

All right, folks. New marching orders. Old jokes from movies only a partial part of the reading audience gets and even less think is funny are out, straight forward is in. Welcome (again) to The Network Round-Up. I actually kind of like ...

Wha' Happened: Spinach Festival Day

I have to admit I am not a big fan of spinach. Despite the repeated attempted brainwashings by the nefarious sailor Popeye and his animated antics I never came over to the cult of Spinach. It's just so mushy and gross when it's cooked. T...

Wha' Happened: National Goof-off Day

Sometimes I'm upset that I do these posts at night because I don't realize that the day is some holiday and thus I don't celebrate it. Today I totally missed my chance to goof-off at work all day without getting in trouble. I'm positive ...

Wha' Happened: National French Bread Day

French bread is by far the best kind of bread. Slather some butter on that baby and you've got a simple tasty snack that's as long as a yard stick. Sure, there's garlic bread and banana nut bed, but those don't stand on their own as brea...

Wha' Happened: Extraterrestrial Abductions Day

An entire day for the celebration of alien abductions? I mean, I guess so. I kind of wonder how people celebrate this holiday. Do they go out and stand in a field hoping to be taken up to the stars? Does the family gather around a giant ...

Wha' Happened: National Poultry Day

Hurray for chickens! Aren't they just delicious and everything tastes like them. Fried, grilled or diced up and compressed into a nugget form they just keep on giving. But let's not forget that there is so much more to the world of poul...

Wha' Happened: Niero's Birthday

What? The birthday of this entire wonderful network's founder is totally a holiday. You wait and see. 100 years from now we'll all be getting this day off in celebration. Also, we will be living a lot longer so that we can celebrate. So ...

Wha' Happened: National Everything You Know Is Wrong Day

I'm not making these holidays up. According to Hallmark, the people who make holidays up professionally, every holiday I put here is totally real. Of course since today is National Everything You Know is Wrong Day and you now know this I...

Wha' Happened: National Pi Day

You know it's mighty disrespectful to the flaky crust and fruity filling of pies everywhere that everyone seems to be spelling the name of the holiday that recognizes them wrong. Nah, I'm just kidding. I know all about Pi and its numbery ...

Wha' Happened: Earmuff Day

Yea, you heard right. It's Earmuff Day... or it was. I'm a bit late today so the holiday is technically over in some places, but that shouldn't keep everyone from wearing some earmuffs despite the unseasonably warm weather. Think of what...

Wha' Happened: National Alfred Hitchcock Day

Did you know today was National Alfred Hitchcock day? I had no clue, but it's inspired me to rename this feature so that each day we learn of an awesome new holiday such as this. I mean without this day would have stopped for a second an...

Wha' Happened: The Network Roundup (3/9/12)

Today I was going to try to tie all the posts from around the Modern Method network together with some kind of theme. So before writing this I went around and collected everything that caught my eye and then stared at it for some sort of...

Wha' Happened: The Network Roundup (3/8/12)

I really want an hot dog, but I don't have any. I'm not sure when hot dogs became a thing that I didn't readily have on hand, but this is where I find myself. Sad state of affairs, I tell you. Anyone have any awesome hot dog joints they ...

Wha' Happened: The Network Roundup (3/7/12)

Wha' Happened: The Network Roundup (3/5/12)

Fun fact: There's an entire network of awesome sites just like Destructoid! Maybe you didn't know about them. Maybe you did and forgot about them. Possibly you've been avoiding them because you heard they all had some STDs. Well, I'm not...

L.A. Noire week kicks off across the network

I think it's pretty safe to say that everyone on Destructoid is excited for the release of L.A. Noire, but it isn't the only site on the network excited for the game. That's why the sites of the Modern Method network have joined together li...

Review: Conduit 2

I've spent the past week playing through the short, but inevitably sweet single player campaign of the sequel to one of the most talked about games last year. I then spent some time playing through its new multiplayer modes a...   read

Tribeca L.A. Noire preview and swag to win

Despite Jim's recent rantings the worlds of film and gaming are growing ever closer. We can argue over whether this is a boon or a detriment to gaming all we want, but when this fact means that Destructoid's sister manly brother film site, ...

Zen Albatross rocks us all at MAGFest

I'm a bit late at getting this up, but I had to bring everyone's attention to Zen Albatross's set at MAGFest. MAGFest had a huge Chiptunes component to it and not only did Zen (that's him above) perform in the show, but he also opened up th...

MAGFest photos are one tenth as awesome as being there

Every time Destructoid gets together it is awesome. I haven't had a bad time when I've gotten to hang out with this awesome and totally amazing community. However, MAFest 9 was seriously epic to an extent I couldn't even fathom. From the mo...

D.I.C.K.S. comes in second, still first in our hearts

This past Thursday was a sad day, for it is a day that we discovered that MAGFest's Gamer Iron Chef was rigged! How else can you explain Destructoid's Iron Chef Kickass Superteam (D.I.C.K.S.) coming in second!? Clearly the battle was rigged...

About Matthew Razakone of us since 2:04 PM on 04.03.2009

Monday reviews aren't on Monday. It's old school, trust me.

OK, so I've been and editor for a while now. I probably should fill this part in a bit more fully.

I've been here a while. In most all likelihood longer than you. I was here when the first cblog post went up, and before. I like to believe I rep Dtoid old school. I fell in love with this community the second the cblogs opened up and posted all that I could as Cowzilla3 (you may remember him as an angry banana). I fell off the radar a bit as I started working for other sites and my time got stretched, but I never left Dtoid and finally, one day, my dreams came true.

Now I'm the big cheese at Flixist (and sometimes a Dtoid contributor). If you didn't know me before as Cowzilla3, then "Hi! I'm Matt Razak. Despite all my rage, I'm going to break my rusty cage and run." I feel I should put the customary Dtoid rocks things here, but you already know that. I'd put my regular posts up below, but I don't have any (yet). Needless to say, I love Destructoid and everyone here.

Big group hug.

I'll see you on the weekends and we can celebrate Hammer Day together.

I also write movie reviews for a living. Sometimes I'll post them here. If you liked my review I would appreciate your kind clickage here. It would be most helpful in feeding the starving African orphans I take care of.
