LONG BLOG

The Good Old Days

   0


This week, Dtoid descends on E3 with an army of bloggers, video editors, photographers and readers, ready to dissect the gaming event of the year form head to toe. But the whole thing started off with a guy in a T-shirt and metal robot helmet who happened to have a blog. That was it. Of course, anytime we wanted to, we could always go back and check out the old days with the wonder of video.

Unfortunately, in a YouTube-related incident, many of the early Destructoid videos disappeared from the video-sharing service. And so, much of what was the early history of this site was lost. Or so we thought.

Through some crafty Googling, I've managed to find the very first Destructoid E3 video from all the way back in 2006. And now, I will share it with you, since I'm sure 99.9% of you haven't seen it before. In a weird way, the more things change, the more things really stay the same, and this little two minute clip is proof of that. It also provides the answer to why there's a unicycle sitting around ModernMethod's offices.

Here is Destructoid preparing for E3, circa 2006:



Ah, sweet memories. :)

About Brian Szabelskione of us since 12:13 PM on 02.11.2007




Oh, hi there. Didnít see you enter. Anyways, welcome to my humble little blog. For those of you not familiar with who I am, the nameís Brian. Iím 24 years old and hail from Findlay, Ohio. I work at the local newspaper here as a copy editor, putting my four long years of college to actual use. Kind of. I think.

For those of you who might recognize me from elsewhere, I work as Assistant Gaming Editor over at Blogcritics Gaming and as Features Editor over at Tomopop. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because I get to do a lot of cool shit with a lot of cool people.

I've been gaming since the relatively young age of around 3 and I've played plenty of games, both good and bad. I'm continuously expanding my gaming collection, which has become more of an archive in recent years as I'm focusing on collecting older, less well-known titles. You'd honestly be surprised on what people are missing out on in bargain bins...



Other than gaming, I love anime, manga, sports, movies, TV, and a whole lot more. I also happen to have something of a legendary love for Cammy, to the point that I am the site's unofficial official Cammy fanboy. And yes, I do play as her in Street Fighter and do so quite well, too.

Also, I am Chad Concelmo's B.F.F., my prize for coming in first in The Great Retro Quiz .18 - ActRaiser. Accept no substitutes. Not even Aerox.
