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, work in games journalism as a full time career, and live in SF eventually. (Okay, maybe not that simple).


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 support NoClip, Mega64, and Alanah Pearce on Patreon. I've also backed Shenmue 3 on Kickstarter.
