Niero talks 10 years of Destructoid (Part 1)

I can't remember exactly what it was that brought me to Destructoid so many years ago. It had to be an article, probably a review, that attracted me here. I know for certain it was the community that made this my new home for video game new...


At GDC today? Come party with the Dtoid Community

In less than 24 hours we'll somehow be celebrating 10 years of Destructoid! Madness. Where to meet: meetup at Hawthron and enjoy happy hour, hosted by GameChops (5-8ish) at 46 Geary St. Preparty responsibility: you're going to need to&...

Aaaand we're back

[Update] Migration complete! Our web servers were physically moved to another location this weekend. I'm very sorry -- we were supposed to be back at 5am but THINGS. What did you do while we were offline?

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 ...

What's up with the forums? A quick update

This was already posted in the forums, but if you didn't catch it just wanted to bump it to the home page: We've relaunched Outer Heaven this weekend.  It's our old forums software: founded in 2006, previously known as the Destructoid ...

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...

Destructoid Voltron EIC photo

My name is Chris Carter and I'm one of your new co-EICs

Hey Destructoid! As you may have heard, Jonathan Holmes is stepping down as editor-in-chief. Because of this, our overlord Niero has decided to split the position into multiple shifts. I'll be handling the US mornings and early afternoons, ...


New Destructoid explained

Here's to new Destructoid - a looser, weirder, multi-headed video game club that never sleeps. Please congratulate Chris, Jordan, Kyle, and Laura on their new managing positions! I'll be in the back handling the poop and pushing us forward ...

Dtoid/GameFan mag photo

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...

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...

You drank our milkshake: E3 stats

Kinda looks like a shark, doesn't it? It's like the Hamza version of how the Andy Kaufman movie ends. We miss that guy and all the editors that came before this month, and now's a good a time to thank them for the legacy work that got us he...

GameFan and Destructoid will crush Cat Fancy Magazine

Huge news today! Starting this summer Destructoid will be publishing a digital magazine with GameFan. It's a 60-page whopper that's half Destructoid on one side, half GameFan on the other but all indie, all enthusiast, all passion. Existing...

This isn't 'goodbye,' it's 'smell ya later'

Hey folks, I'll keep this brief. I'm sorry to say, effective immediately, my role as video handeyman here at Destructoid is coming to an end. It may not come as a huge surprise, as I've kind of faded into the background this year. A large ...

Summa photo

I'm back, bitches!

You may be asking yourself: Who the fuck is Robert Summa? And why is he saying he's back? And why is he calling me a bitch? For those of you too young to remember a baby Dtoid, I'm the former editor-in-chief of this unholy place. Back when ...

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 ...

So what's next for Dtoid video, bath, and beyond?

Destructoid was hit with a one-two punch in the past week. One of our oldest and most beloved staff members, Hamza "Cybernetic Tiger Z" Aziz, has retired his mantle of sidekick to Dtoid founder Niero Gonzalez and is off on his own path. We ...

Dtoid Full Disclosure reddit AMA happening today at 11:30am

It's Friday and I'm wrapping up my first week as Destructoid's editor-in-chief, a title which is apparently now known as "America's Sweetheart." I don't know who decided that, but who ever you are, thank you. So far, I love the job. We've s...
