What's up with the forums? A quick update

This was already posted in the forums, but if you didn't catch it just wanted to bump it to the home page: We've relaunched Outer Heaven this weekend.  It's our old forums software: founded in 2006, previously known as the Destructoid ...   read

Things I watched on the plane to gamescom

My standards go out the window while I ate the "pasteurized process cheese food" provided by United as an in-flight snack. If you have to designate your product as "food," there is a problem. It tasted like a cheesy Ritz without the satisfy...   read

I'm retiring from my editor-in-chief job, so let's have a contest!

It's been a good year for Destructoid. We got more unique views in June 2015 than any other month in the history of the website. There are a lot of reasons for that, not the least of which being that our staff has worked their butts off to...   read

Dtoid/GameFan digital magazine is now free for everybody!

Full disclosure: I was initially against the idea of allowing people to download the debut issue of Destructoid/GameFan magazine for free. That's not because I want money. My paycheck won't change regardless of how many issues of this thing...   read

Destructoid Magazine is here, and it can be free!

Destructoid Magazine Issue 1 is finally here! To clear up any confusion: yes, it is a real, actual paper magazine you can lick. It's 36 pages long (minus ads), which isn't too shabby. Better yet, if you flip the magazine over you'll be trea...   read

I'm back, bitches!

Former OneUps member and Dtoid chief covers Persona 4 tune
