Join a gaming focus group, get paid if you qualify

Make some money with those heated opinions

Destructoid is sponsored in part by PanelofGamers, a division of VGMarket, that pays gamers to complete focus group surveys from home. Some surveys offered right now are paying $20 per completion.  The names of the companies aren't expressly disclosed as to not give away information for unannounced titles, but you'll be serving clients like EA, Blizzard, Capcom, Sony, and earning a portion of dat Zynga moneyCheck it out for yourself.

Obviously, this is not for everyone. I'd go as far as saying it's not for most of you. These survey are long and can sometimes be tedious, and they're looking for a very specific user in some cases (age/location/existing habits). As such, you may not qualify for all of the work offered.  When it does work out, you get paid, so that's neat.

We hope some of our younger or employed readers will find this service useful. Disclosure: As a media partner, Destructoid earns a commission for making this introduction.

Love, Lost, Live, Lost (2014) - Yesterday was me and my girlfriend's 16th year anniversary together, so I decided to share this song. It deals with being in love, losing that person, moving on, and learning to love again. It's 9 minutes long, too :P

So I'm hearing the UN called Japan in to discus "Banning the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women " Which by Anita's standards = any Violence able to be done. Japan sent a 40 page long NO back to the UN in reply.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T
