About Dan Roemerone of us since 4:38 PM on 08.30.2014

I unironically like pop-punk, collect old gaming magazines, and I'm somehow allowed to do stuff around here.


I've been enjoying and dabbling in Destructoid content since 2014. My goals are pretty simple as of late: Have a complete Offspring vinyl and CD collection, film a documentary, and work within games media as a full-time career.


I also make video reviews and other videos in general with friends as a side hobby, check out the Infinite Backlog YouTube channel for those said things:

Disclosure: I backed Shenmue 3 on Kickstarter.
