I'm retiring from my editor-in-chief job, so let's have a contest!

It's been a good year for Destructoid. We got more unique views in June 2015 than any other month in the history of the website. There are a lot of reasons for that, not the least of which being that our staff has worked the...

Animal Crossing gets its PONPONPON on

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is almost here, but I'm not seeing much excitement for it. Maybe that's because it's a full priced game that looks to offer just a fraction of the features found in the previously re...
