Damn, look at Seymour shred Splatoon tunes on his guitar

Splatoon's music was love at first listen. Last year, Nintendo initially drew me to its then-unknown game about squidkids thanks in large part to the kickass theme song. It's now nearly 2016, and I'm not even close to tired of hearing that ...   read

Things I watched on the plane to gamescom

My standards go out the window while I ate the "pasteurized process cheese food" provided by United as an in-flight snack. If you have to designate your product as "food," there is a problem. It tasted like a cheesy Ritz without the satisfy...   read

Steven Hansen: Still Features Editor, also EIC of Destructoid Magazine

As we've just told you repeatedly now, Jonathan Holmes is stepping back from the overarching role of Editor-in-Chief, and various familiar faces are stepping up to absorb his duties as co-Editors-in-Chief. It's a pretty good deal. Holmes is...   read

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 their butts off to...   read

Dtoid/GameFan digital magazine is now free for everybody!

Full disclosure: I was initially against the idea of allowing people to download the debut issue of Destructoid/GameFan magazine for free. That's not because I want money. My paycheck won't change regardless of how many issues of this thing...   read

Destructoid Magazine is here, and it can be free!

Destructoid Magazine Issue 1 is finally here! To clear up any confusion: yes, it is a real, actual paper magazine you can lick. It's 36 pages long (minus ads), which isn't too shabby. Better yet, if you flip the magazine over you'll be trea...   read

I'm back, bitches!

Former OneUps member and Dtoid chief covers Persona 4 tune

Dale North is one of the best singers in the world. The fact that Dtoid was lucky enough to have him as a writer, and later, as an Editor-in-Chief for so long is delightfully puzzling. It's like if you came home one day to find that Aimee ...   read
