Golden Archives: The Destructoid children's alphabet book

Made by the Dtoid Community, March 2009

[Something cool we just remembered from our Golden Archives. Love this! -Niero]

Last year, GuitarAtomik sang, Rio McCarthy made a bunch of awesome, Necros was racy, itemforty drew the staff, RockVillian made a prologue, CannibalCalvin was creepy, LarkOhiya made a Destructoid in Halo 3, DJDuffy made an animation, Butmac got really drunk and Ceark made the Destructoid graphic novel.   

A lot of awesome happened last year, so it was pretty hard thinking of something to top all those incredible efforts. I finally thought of something a couple of months ago and called for artists from the Destructoid community to work together on a special project.

The idea originally was for the artists to just make their own version of the Destructoid robot and bring all the different Destructoids together into one picture. In the e-mail I sent to the 40 plus artists that volunteered, I made an off-hand joke that we should make a children's alphabet book instead. After laughing at my own joke for a little while, I kept thinking about it and realized an alphabet book themed after Destructoid sounded brilliant. So, that's what we have here now.

The aim of the anniversary project was for everyone to draw their own version of the Destructoid robot and relate their image to a letter, symbol, number or made up icon of their choice. Obviously, there were more than 26 people on this project so we unofficially added some new "letters" to the English alphabet.

Here’s a breakdown of everyone that submitted an image to the project:

Traded in a bunch of old Star Trek novels and other books at a used bookstore. Made $10 and got Tori Amos' "Strange Little Girls" album along with it. They made me take the William Shatner novels back. Smart clerks.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.

Grim Fandango......some real good sruff here. As soon as I complete it (vita version, of course) will probably see about a write up. Not perfect, but theres some good stuff here. Glad it got brought back from obsolescence hell.

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.
