Oh, hi. Unless you're what we fondly call an "oldfag", you might not recognize me. I'm Niero. I founded this site a billion years ago. I definitely don't cblog as much as I should. Shameful! It's not without some sheepishness though, as I've been trying to modernize our software for the last two years (and failed miserably once, on my second go-around now) so I'm usually in my mancave tinkering away at our someday future version of the site. I'm not a good programmer. Luckily I've hired some people. Wheh. More on this later.

Anyway, I'll be at PAX in a few weeks with my robot child Mr. Destructoid. Come find me and demand to try the new helmet on. It now has programmable lights, is 3x lighter than the previous one (believe it!) and instantly makes you a sex magnet. There's also an optional pair of pimp shoes if you're a size 10-11.



When I'm not working on the empire you can find me on instagram or twitter as @ dtoidniero.

See you soon!

About Papa Nieroone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I've been writing about video games on Destructoid for almost 12 years. It would be insane to stop now. I do a lot of stuff behind the scenes here, but mostly my job is to keep Destructoid weird.

Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage:


(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache



My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:



I've been to Japan a dozen times. Tokyo's my favorite place, ever. Good food, good people.



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.

Until then, here's a photo of me doing the nightly site backups of the community blogs:
