Hey Dtoiders, sorry for the wacky identity site bug. I accidentally cached full-pages instead of only the database query, so you were getting a page that somebody else saw. No account logins were compromised. I flushed the cache, should be normal soon

Confirming that there's a bug with loading profiles and other Q-post related pages. We hope to have it patched this evening during the midnight hours

 
 
 

Anyone having any trouble with the site since last night's upgrades? The database seems to be more stable, but maybe the site is a pinch slower? Discuss

 
 
 

site's back but qtoid seems to be down. investigating...

 
 
 

What Kevin said! Over the next week we're upgrading parts of the site to handle more load. We'll be offline for an hour tonight. See you later tonight!

 
 
 

Sorry about the extended downtime, unix and hard drive mounting and stuff. Last night's hardware upgrades were complete, the site should be running smoother now! <3

 
 
 

hey Dtoiders, we're going offline tonight between 3-4 AM Central for maintenance. Apologies in advance. Stop by our Youtube if you miss us!



 
 
 
 

As much as I loved Mario Odyssey, I'm looking at this post game like my mom asked me to clean out my closet over the weekend. Why should I?

So super sorry the site was down today - we had a string of old hardware fail and some ancient documentation slowed us down and mistakes were made while recovering. On the bright side, I used the downtime to upgrade our systems. Should be faster now!

Ban this filth: Fake Cuphead games sneak onto Android

Welp, it was just a matter of time. At least six playable ass-to-mouth Cuphead bootlegs are now on the Google Play store. Don't even bother: They are nothing like the run and gun shooter we love. Half of them are ad-filled guides. What's wo...

 
 
 
 

As some of you already noted, Cory was let go today over tweets in very poor taste at one of our vendors. I don't like losing good writers over something that could have been avoided, but it wasnt the first time he was written up. I wish Cory best of luck

Minor site update: I disabled automatic wide-screen resolution as it was causing the right sidebar to be hidden on lower resolution ipads and other mobile devices. Please turn that on in Manage > Preferences if you have a big-ass monitor. Thx!

I keep Destructoid weird. Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage, look:


(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache



My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:



I live in Japan sometimes.



Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:



My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it. When I founded this site in 2006 everybody told me there were already too many gaming websites and it would never happen for me. I ended up selling the site to Enthusiast Gaming and now I help run the biggest gaming convention in Toronto, and continue to work on this site, which reaches millions a month. Basically fuck whatever people think - work hard everyday and don't take no for an answer.

The most important lesson I learned as an adult is that everybody's faking it at their job - and faking it better than everyone else is who gets the job. Also, be nice.
