Ye old video game oddities: Rise from your grave!

About Dan Roemerone of us since 4:38 PM on 08.30.2014

I unironically like pop-punk, collect old gaming magazines, and worse yet -- I'm somehow allowed to do stuff around here.


I've been enjoying and dabbling in Destructoid content since 2014. My goals are pretty simple as of late: Have a complete Offspring vinyl and CD collection, film a documentary, work in games journalism as a full time career, and live in SF eventually. (Okay, maybe not that simple).


I also make video reviews and other videos in general with friends as a side hobby, check out the Infinite Backlog YouTube channel for those said things:

Disclosure: I support NoClip, Mega64, and Alanah Pearce on Patreon. I've also backed Shenmue 3 on Kickstarter.
