If you read Destructoid 10,000 times a day, you probably love our unofficial Bonus Kun "just off the home page" feature at the bottom of the page. If you're more of a drive-by reader, you'll probably want t...

UncleGamer interview & a Dtoid FAQ


Nov 20

Like Fronz, last week I was a guest on a podcast for an interview about all things Destructoid which, in retrospect, serves as a pretty good FAQ for people that don't know the history of the site (it was originally a scam...

Mastiff Games need a Web site designer

Remember La Pucelle Tactics? It was that type of game where I thought, "Damn, I should pick that up." Then, due to lack of funds, I forgot about it, and it faded into obscurity. That said, I'm glad the company h...

A whole new Destructoid -- coming soon

Nov 10 // Niero Gonzalez
LOGIN AND EDIT YOUR PROFILE TO SET UP AN AVATAR Once you're logged in, you'll see a welcome message appear on the top right corner. This page will have your user options. For the moment, just load one up while we work out the bugs. Yup, it's a little rough. But that changes this weekend. Don't worry - we're going to rescue all of your old comments. I would not have upgraded if we were going to lose those. They'll be back! Why the change? For one, we couldn't handle getting Dugg every other day on Wordpress.  It's not built for the kind of traffic we now pull. Destructoid reaches roughly 1.5 million unique visitors a month now and growing at ludicrous speed -- so the site was starting to slow down.  Elephant is built for high traffic -- you should already feel the speed difference. Secondly, there's all this ninja code we're hush hush about that's coming soon. But I can promise you this -- once we're done, things are going to get very interesting here...  Anyway, it's been a crazy seven months (yeah, we're not even a year old yet -- can you believe that?).  I can't thank our readers enough, especially you regulars that  never miss a comment opportunity. Thanks to all of you for sticking with us on the ups and downs. Oh what's this, a PS3 / 2 Wii contest clue snuck in at the end of this paragraph? Sha, like a triangle. Very insightful, batches! Good luck! Niero Robot-In-Chief
