Look I drink...and this results in a lot of apologies. Be it to a Catholic Bishop, AOL, or the shopping cart I "allegedly" molested at Wal-Mart. But, I have never ever apologized with a bag of marijuana cigarettes.  Bewa...

Shameless Wiimote rip-off for the Walmart win

A glimpse into madness: The best of Tom Tommy

In my short tenure at Destructoid, I've done a lot of things I never thought I would. I've eaten cocktail sausages with games companies, I've been stranded in the Hilton Hotel with Pure Pwnage and angry Norwegians. I've telephoned Uwe Boll ...
