Video game news, rants, and other assorted silliness from the Destructoid Show crew
TikTok is a wild place, full of the most laser-focused “how’d you know I’d be into this?” content I’ve ever come across in any of my feeds. Every day, its algorithm gets closer to figuring out exactly what kind of weirdos we all are. With that extreme granularity, the app means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but if you’re ever in the mood for more gaming content, we’ve got you covered — Destructoid has a TikTok account!
Take it away, Brett and Mary. Tell ’em what we’re about.
To back up for a second, Destructoid recently launched a comedic gaming news show on Snapchat called, well, The Destructoid Show. (If it works, it works!) It’s been a couple of crazy months for co-hosts Brett Medlock and Mary Stowe and our tireless editor, Dan Roemer. Full episodes go up every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, if you’re down.
That said, the video crew has also been building up Destructoid’s new TikTok account.
Brett, Mary, and Dan have settled into a groove with gaming news coverage, over-the-top scripted bits, and off-the-cuff postings whose satire might be lost on some (but oh well). We feel like the time is right for an announcement, so here it is, and we hope you enjoy it.
To that end, here are some of our favorite moments so far:
As much as TikTok can be its own ecosystem, it’d be cool to see these videos reach regular Destructoid readers — folks who recognize the robot beyond the Twitch emote. And hey, if you leave a thoughtful comment, Brett might even give you a literal shout-out.
For more gaming TikToks, come check out the full Destructoid account on the app, or in your browser. We’d happily sit alongside videos of people getting their ears cleaned out. Follow our new head of video Brett Medlock here on Twitter.
