Hot Mess: 10 Years of Destructoid party photos

There's something about the Mr. Destructoid helmet that brings out the animal in people. I've seen sheepish tiny McChicken-like boys turn into fearless crotch-thrusters, running up on stages and doing what three shots of Jager could not aff...   read

Destructoid
On March 16, 2006, Destructoid was born. Our founder and overlord Niero has been running it ever since, and the rest is history. We'll be taking a closer look at Destructoid's legacy this week (including this multi-part interview with Niero), but for now, let's reflect on how badass of a month March 2006 was.   read

 
Golden Week
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...   read

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
