How I learned to love the videogame flamethrower photo
How I learned to love the videogame flamethrower
by Chad Concelmo

I was never a fan of flamethrowers in videogames.

I am not sure exactly where this started, but I have a pretty good idea: When I used to play Contra III: The Alien Wars with friends, I would do anything to avoid getting the “F” flamethrower for my gun. It was the worst. It had no range, it barely did any damage, and it was just an overall chore to use.  In a game like Contra, having a weapon with a long range is almost a necessity! That’s why the spread gun is so great! Picking up the flamethrower in Contra III almost always resulted in certain death.

This hatred of the videogame flamethrower moved on to many more games in the future. Games like StarCraft and even Ratchet & Clank introduced other similar forms of the flamethrower ... and I reacted to them all the same. I didn’t like equipping them. At all.

But, recently, I have discovered something surprising about videogame flamethrowers.

I kind of love them now.

Paging Tazar and Snaileb to Cancun - Congrats to our Dtoid fanboy winners!
by Niero Gonzalez

 
The backstory: Destructoid turned two (or twenty), so we're putting babies in people in Cancun next week to celebrate and this year we wanted to fly Destructoid's biggest fanboy and a friend to join us. So who should that person be this year? The people have spoken!  Following a near-riot ballot anticipation in the cblogs and a late night internal voting session the collective has chosen none other than TAZAR THE YOOT, an honorable site regular who has a license plate cooler than the guy who actually runs the site! Tazar has selected friend a fellow Dtoid community member Snaileb to join the festivities as his bitch, so that wraps up this year's anniversary contest. We'd like to thank everyone that participated and a special thanks to our runner up Cutie Honey who made an amazing music video. Expect tacky souvenirs from us!
 
Two other anniversary contests remain: A chance to win Grand Theft Auto 4 and Playstation 3 and a killer $5000 custom Turning Point gaming PC.  These contests are ending soon, so get your entry in pronto. Capisch?

Last but not least, I have special announcement to make.  Later this month this little start-up video game company will be moving out of my living room and into a proper office near downtown Miami. I know - serious business! We can assure you that it will be a dive at first, but after the paint dries and our 90x115 foot Deep Throat poster arrives it should then feel like home. Keep an eye on my Cblog as I hope to document the entire process of going from a humble garage based web publisher to a slave-driving business-jerkface who only hires slutty interns from the nearby hippie art college*! We have a ton of new site features planned so expect your cheese to be moved and fondled inappropriately.
 
Seriously though, these are very exciting times and we're happy to give back as much as we can for putting us on the map. Thanks everyone for the support and sharing in the unlikely Destructoid story.

Destructoid's games of the week for 06/10/07: HR nightmare edition!

To whom it may concern, It has come to my attention that the smoke detectors in the lavatories are made entirely out of Papier-mâché. While they make for decorative and festive accoutrements in an otherwise sterile restroom environment, it's entirely possible that they would fail to perform their primary function in the event of a fire. Professionally, Dr. Nex PhD
