The Destructoid Christmas Album- Destructoid


I can’t believe this actually happened.
Earlier this month, I was drinking some wine (maybe more than “some”) and decided to send an almost joking e-mail to the Destructoid family of editors and contributors. It read something like this: “OMG we should totally all record Christmas songs and create a Christmas album to release on the site. AMAZING!”
And now, here I am, typing an introduction to the official Destructoid Christmas Album. Wow. So awesome. I love the people on this site so much.
No further explanation is really necessary. Click here to fill your heart with Christmas cheer. You are not ready for this.

What’s next for Borderlands? This could be it- Destructoid
Details on the next batch of Borderlands content has been leaked… and pretty much confirmed to be real by Gearbox employees. Sounds great to me! Makes me more motivated to actually go and finish the last DLC pack.

The Jimquisition: Your reviews are TEH BIAS- Destructoid

Do you think reviews should be objective? Do you not know how to use the word “bias” correctly? Do you get upset because someone’s review score isn’t the same as everybody else’s on Metacritic? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then you might want to brace yourself for Jimpact.

I realise this video is a week or two old, but I think it’s something that people need to see. I see a lot of bullshit similar to this on Tumblr, and it takes everything I have not to go on a rage rant when I do.

Something a lot of people should hear.

Ashley Davis is my favourite person ever. Wait, did she change her name to Ashley Burch? If she did, that’s gonna get mighty confusing.

Everything I Say Is A Lie

gamejournos:

Guys, I’m done. No more blogging from me. This place is finished. Y’see, after a lengthy discussion with Destructoid’s Dale North he’s made it clear to me that Destructoid is awesome. No, really. They are. I mean, you don’t become one of the biggest gaming sites on the internet by being shit. They have a metric fuckton of readers, like the Twilight novels. The numbers alone! Why attack that? They must be doing something right, surely.

The same with Kotaku. Sure, they post a lot of trash, but they have a qualimpoopillion readers who visit their site every day. I can’t argue with those figures!

And that’s what it’s about at the end of the day, isn’t it? Numbers. Pageviews. Statistics. That is what game journalism is truly about, and the stats speak volumes. Clearly Destructoid were fantastic all along. You finally made a monkey out of me!

Also Jim Sterling is one sexy dancer. Two hours later and I’m still sporting some serious wood.

So where do we go from here? Well from tomorrow the blog will be completely rebranded. I’m keeping the URL as it is, but the site will now be called Game Journalists Are Incredibly Awesome And I Wish I Could Be One But I’m A Failed Writer And I’m Actually Rather Bitter About That But It’s Okay Because Look At All These Awesome Articles These Sites Post. GJAIAAIWICBEBIAFWAIARBATBIOBLAATAATSP will actually be more or less the same as it is now - I’ll just relabel all of the posts I’ve made so far as #so awesome.

Now if you’ll excuse me, the only place to eat anywhere near me is a KFC. Sure they’re not great, but there’s nothing better on the table so I just sort-of make do.

Good night, and remember you can’t trust everything you read.

Imagining Jim Sterling doing a sexy dance is getting me hard. I am okay with this.

This is actually a really well thought out article. I’m not even being sarcastic!

Destructoid Review: Super Mario Galaxy 2

If you’re looking for the negative section in this review, you’re not going to find it; I have nothing bad to say. Going in, I expected to call Nintendo out for treading water, revisiting Super Mario Galaxy in this sequel. They didn’t, though. Instead, they poured in the same creativity and imagination that made me fall in love with games like Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. To me, it feels like they finally felt the freedom and comfort in 3D platforming to get back to that Nintendo magic that we all remember. The end result is a galaxy of surprise after surprise, all coming together in a game that tops even my past favorites, making this the best Mario game Nintendo has released. Everything you’ve ever loved and more about the Mario series is here, and you’ll be missing out on something truly special by passing on this game.
Score: 10 — Flawless Victory (10s are as close to perfect as you will get in a genre or on a platform. Pure, untarnished videogame ecstasy.)
Goodbye, and good luck you magnificent bastard.

Anthony Burch leaves Destructoid

I’m such a softy, I always get sentimental reading posts like this, especially when it’s people like Anthony, who I feel like I know despite having never met him.

So naturally the last line made me lose my shit.

Anthony Burch and Aaron Linde are leaving Podtoid!

Anthony is leaving Destructoid altogether! D: Sad times are these!

The sea is an issue that needs to be dealt with.

These scientists, I don’t know where, have been studying moray eels. Dude, those motherfuckers have two sets of jaws. Like in Aliens- they have their mouth which like, bites fish and then they have this other fuckin’ set of jaws that comes out of their throat to like… bite pieces of the fish off. It’s the fucking coolest yet simultaneously most disturbing thing about like… the planet Earth ever.
So anyway, back on topic-
Man, the sea is fucked up. Really it is, I mean everything in the sea is just wrong.
*laughter* Have you seen those giant squids? Can you imagine running into one of those things? Oh my God…
Yeah! I mean the amount of bullshit that goes on in the sea is unbelievable I mean you’ve got Obama talking about healthcare- why isn’t he dealing with the ocean!? There’s fucking fish with LIGHTS down there!
*laughter*
*silence*
