This shark is heading off into the open ocean

After nearly nine amazing, wonderful, and crazy years, my time at Destructoid has come to an end. I fell in love with this place ever since I first laid eyes on it, finding myself entranced by the gonzo writing style Ni...

Just sharing some thoughts

Hi!† So there's never a dull moment when you work in the wonderful world of video games. For instance, I just got finished with a move! That Dtoid HQ we had in SF is more or less done. For now at least. Why? Well San Francis...

On Twitch

Why we're shutting down our Twitch efforts as you've known it? Because we couldn't afford it any longer. Since day one, the amount of money we put into Twitch has always been more than we've ever gotten out of it. This was ne...

See this people? YOU SEE WHAT I HAVE TO GO THROUGH TO GET YOU EXCLUSIVES?! For context, the guy feeding me is Nigel Lowrie of Devolver Digital and we were goofing off waiting for some of my people to come through and demo...

Top thirty-seven people cosplaying as 1967 Chevy Impalas.

A basic feature of the human condition is that humans at their basic level have been conditioned to act human. Every once in a while rogue trendsetters break out from the pack in a way that only renegade lone wolves can, dari...

I'm only writing this for a forum badge.

Like many other gamers, Iíve recently jumped back in with an addictive action-RPG series. Unlike many other gamers, the game in question isnít Dark Souls 2, but rather the Fable games. Hey, theyíre addictive to me anyways. I ...

Hi, I'm the CEO of Destructoid - AMA

Hi. So, uh, what's new? Lot's have changed around here, huh? Like, I'm the CEO of this company now. What the fuck is up with that? What's the best way I can say this? My life has been just bonkers lately. I got bumped up t...

WINTER: Superior Driving Skills

For a while now I've credited playing kart racers when I was younger (Super Mario Kart and Crash Team Racing in particular) with making me have good winter driving skills. Sliding around on ice behind the wheel of a go-kart in the Mushroom Kingdom is exactly the same as sliding around on ice behind the wheel of an SUV in Minnesota. Totally. For real.

My top 10 games of 2012

It's funny being in this business. Ask anyone and you'll find out that most people end up talking about videogames more than they actually play them. Usually that's been the case with me, but this year I played a lot more gam...

Did you know my name means I'm The God of Sex?

Everything makes so much sense now. So so so much sense. Tonight on Twitter @Katamayadamcy looked up what her name means on Urban Dictionary. So I did the same thing and oh boy. The traditional meaning of my name falls unde...

Trading NES games for pizzas

Story time! Iím at home, watching TV with my mom and a Papa Johns ad just reminded me of a funny period where I was trading NES game for pizzas at work. Years ago, my dad and uncle owned a game store where we carried everyth...

Role Reversal: Chili Dogs

So it's not really from a video game, but rather based on a cartoon based on a video game. You all remember how much Sonic and Tails loved eating chili dogs in the goofier of their '90s cartoons, yeah? Like the Ninja Turtles and their pizza, Sega's mascots were addicted to chili dogs. So for my role reversal I simply made those two the entree.

Here's a truckload of (possibly) usable game codes

A long time ago, I posted a C Blog where I dumped a ton of game codes sitting in my inbox. Now I'm doing it again! Most of these codes were supposed to be given out during contests. But get this, I'd wager that a good 25% of ...

10 Things you didn't know about me. (11. I procrastinate)

I know I'm a bit behind the initial rush, but I figured it's never too late for another 10 Things blog. Some people had things similar to stuff I was planning on including, so I tried to stay away from that. Here's 10 thing...
