Destructoid's new ad campaign gets violently happy

   0


Update: The banners were rejected. They asked me to tone it down. Foiled again! Maybe I should just run these on 4chan instead.

I was in New York last week and ran into a guy that runs a popular dating site called /b/ or something like that, the name escapes me. Actually, it's OkCupid. Since we're both independent we thought hey, let's help each other out and run a banner ad trade for each other and see if we can't get our users to give each other's bear aids (tm).

"What the hell kind of banner ads should we run on a dating site?", I pondered.

I know! It should it be about how to meet/scare the ten lovely women that read Destructoid. I can see it now:

"Call Elsa & Atheistium for a good time! -click here-"

Maybe not. Anyway, what I came up with is attached in the gallery below. I hope you're amused and coming over later with the blow torches and chainsaws.

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Niero Gonzalezone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I keep Destructoid weird. Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage, look:


(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache



My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:



I live in Japan sometimes.



Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:



My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it. When I founded this site in 2006 everybody told me there were already too many gaming websites and it would never happen for me. I ended up selling the site to Enthusiast Gaming and now I help run the biggest gaming convention in Toronto, and continue to work on this site, which reaches millions a month. Basically fuck whatever people think - work hard everyday and don't take no for an answer.

The most important lesson I learned as an adult is that everybody's faking it at their job - and faking it better than everyone else is who gets the job. Also, be nice.
