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...   0

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...   0

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...   0

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...   0

I still maintain I was named for a Styx's "Christopher, Mr. Christopher."

Byte-Sized Boos: indie horror quick hits

I've discussed Slender and Slender Man's Shadow in the past, but in their wake has come a veritable onslaught of independent, free games flying a banner of "horror" and trying to get a piece of the YouTube scaredy-cat pie. In...   0

Hold the sausage: will videogames ever be more than playing with the boys?

(EDIT 11/29/2012 - edited the title and a couple of other uses of the term "misogyny" out of things; a friend pointed out I was using the term far too lightly, and it didn't fit the message I intended. Just a terminology ho...   0

Red and Blue, resolving into purple.

This almost qualifies as NVGR, but given Red Vs Blue's basis on Halo, I figure it counts. Kinda personal, tl;dr ahead, so if you're not into that, you can find the Back button easily enough. Of all the things that have ever ...   0

Something to be thankful for: the end of Ctrl-Alt-Del

The Scoville Dewritos Challenge claims another victim.

Can't untaste. All-nighter delirium kind of made the flavor even more indescribably awful, on top of making me rambly and not entirely there. If you're wondering about the logo and the background Halo-age, I did this as a (po...   0

Thank you, for bringing me here, for showing me Home.
