Living the dream


Hey new guy, did you know that Destructoid was founded just to get me into E3?

No, seriously.

I learned that popular bloggers were allowed media passes, so I blogged night and day to earn my badge, writing over 1000 posts a year. I had no idea it would be this much fun to run a website (reading the comments, in particular). To promote it I created the original Mr. Destructoid helmet out of spare air conditioner parts to hand out homemade flyers for our first community contest (win a new videocard, pulled from my PC!). This feels like a lifetime ago.

Eight years later my best friends now run the company, and they send professional editorial and video crew to cover the event in detail, publishing hundreds of stories from the show. The illustrious Volpin Props redesigned the sexy Mr. Destructoid you now know today. I can't believe he appeared on the BBC UK. You've come a long way, bot.

True to our legacy, it also pleases me to send new staff* to E3 for the first time to experience all the magic of the world's biggest gaming convention. This is the most interesting and exciting industry in the world, and Mr. Destructoid is the embodiment of our team's love and enthusiasm for videogames.

Living the dream.

*That's our new music editor Grimecraft costumed as Mr. Destructoid, and thanks to Marlene Monzo for the photography. Also, special thanks to Marc Threadingham and Martin S. Hoffs for the BBC UK photo.

Hollywood loves the E3 trailer for Metal Gear Solid V

It should go without saying that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a great showing at E3. Not only was the official trailer a stellar piece of work, and a big indication of how grim the game will be, but the 30-minute ...more

Photo realistic cat heads in Wii U's The Devil's Third

It's weird clicking a mature content warning on a video on Nintendo's YouTube with Mario staring innocently at me. But the collaboration between Itagaki and Nintendo for The Devil's Third, revived as a Wii U exclusive, is we...more
