LONG BLOG

My neighbor works for Bangbus and I work for Destructoid

James: Today I was moved to RealityKings. Its a little more intense than working for Fling, which was the quasi-dating thing I signed up for. The guy sitting next to me does Flash design and all he does is pull images and videos of the shit.

Niero: You know, I'm a little hesitant to work for porn. Aside from the obvious reasons, how are you supposed to enjoy porn in your home after you work in it all day?

James: Yeah, everyone there is just like "it's just porn, whatever". I guess I'll get used to it.

Niero: And you'll come home and have to resort to porn about animals in food costumes fisting each other, as the normal porn will have no effect on you whatsoever.

James: Hah! Yeah, just like that Southpark episode. Don't be alarmed if I start bringing Japanese girls over to shit on my chest and torture me.

Niero: Speaking of Japanese weird shit, look at this game I just got. It's called Bobobo-bo-bobobo. Its based on a Shonen Jump manga and anime.

James: (puzzling over the weird box) What the fuck is this? What kind of weird studio makes this?





Niero: Hudson, same guys that do Bomberman. This afro guy walks facing the screen through trees as bad guys jump out of the trees to get him. You have to fend them off using these giant nose hairs, one per analog stick. Sometimes your friends are trapped in crates. If you rescue them they dance behind you. The soundtrack is amazing.

James: Didn't you have another game like this with Maracas?

Niero: Samba de Amigo! I have it right there. That game's very different though. Well, also different from other games too. I gravitate towards this oddball stuff.

James: I remember seeing that when you first got it in all Japanese, you didn't know what the hell was going on but you were enjoying it anyway with all the weir shit on the screen.

Why are you always getting these weird games?

Niero: When you have access to all these games you start looking for the most unusual shit as the normal stuff doesn't hold my attention whatsoever. Careful what you wish for, right?

It's kind of like the porn thing. Same principle.

James: We're lucky. But you know we're both doomed.

Niero: Yup.

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Papa Nieroone 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.
