Destructoid is in my thesis!


Super thanks to you guys!

Just thought I'd share something with you guys. As you probably have heard, I filed my thesis yesterday. Well, in the acknowledgements I made sure to give thanks where it is due:

"I must spend some time thanking the Destructoid community. This website has provided a number of very supportive friendships that I consider as family. There is not enough space to list the many people who have touched my life, but special thanks must be given to Ben PerLee, Chris Healy, Andrew Wooster, Niero Gonzalez, and my family at �South van Awesome�. The support of my friends, both online and offline, was unparalleled and I cannot thank them enough for believing in me."

So there you go. Destructoid is now immortalized inside the walls of the UC Berkeley library from now until the end of time (whenever that may be). Thank you to each and every one of you who has touched my life with your friendship and support. Dtoid is the best! <3 <3 <3

About Jesse Cortezone of us since 4:34 AM on 01.13.2007


I am a Ph. D. chemist from the University of California, Berkeley. I have been playing videogames since as long as I can remember! My past favorite games include Secret of Mana, TMNT: Turtles in Time, the Resident Evil series (Jill is SUCH as master of unlocking), FFVII, Smash Bros Melee, and many others.

I've definitely gone through phases in my gaming "career". I used to LOVE fighting games in the time of Tekken Tag and Marvel vs Capcom II (my favorite fighting game), but now I find myself drawn to the more story driven games, and very recently, the music games....:)

But....fighting games are making a comeback! SFIV! MvC3! BlazBlue! Beware everyone, Tactix has put a quarter on the screen and is challenging you for battle!

It was mere chance that brought me to Destructoid back in early 2007, and through it all I've stayed because of the great writing staff, a community that cares, and lots of new internet and IRL friends. Destructoid has changed my life. True story.
