Community playdate manager no more


That’s right, after almost two years of bringing all of you the latest and greatest Team Fortress 2sday and Friday Night Fights posts, I’m calling it quits.

This has nothing to do with Destructoid, this is completely for personal reasons. I’ve actually been talking about doing this for a while, it’s hard to break away though, especially when you are surrounded by so many amazing individuals (I’m talking about you, TF2 and FNF crowd. Oh, and Andy).

My wife and I are expecting another child, this in and of itself isn’t the sole reason for me stepping down, the new baby plus the fact that my wife has to return back to Europe after the baby is born is really the main reason. I’ll be taking care of our new kid as well as our ten-year old daughter while my wife is gone, all while still working full time (thankfully I work from home).

I want to personally say thank you to Andy Dixon for giving me this opportunity and for all of the help and support you’ve given during my time with Destructoid. I honestly could not have done this without you.

I’ll still be around, I’m not leaving the site for good, I’ll just be a normal community member, commenting on all the various stories posted, partaking in the fun that is the forums and maybe even blogging a bit here and there, although that may be easier said than done, especially over the next few months with the new baby.

You may still hear me on Radio Destructoid every now and then, I believe I still have an open invite to be a regular, so that’s pretty rad.

Anywho, thanks everyone for being awesome, for putting up with my stupid 80’s lyrics in my posts and for not yelling at me too much when I completely botched one of the posts up.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some amiibo to go buy and hoard away...

About ChillyBillyone of us since 7:08 PM on 02.03.2007

I'm the former Community Playdate Manager for Destructoid. Looking to play some games with other Dtoiders? Check out the forums and watch the blogs and front page for all of the fun!

I'm definitely more "collector" than gamer these days. Sure I still play my Wii U/ Xbox One/PS4/Vita and 3DS, and I love them all, but I just don't have the free time to play them like I used to.

I started my gaming life on an old Atari 2600 that my dad bought us for Christmas. I used to frequent the local arcade (early 80's) and I have a passion for anything pinball.

As of this update (2/20/2016) I currently have:

50 Consoles
61 Handhelds
2100 physical copies of various games
350 digital copies of games
Tons of other video game related items

Comic books? Yep, I read 'em. Here are some of my all-time favorites.

Cerberus the Aardvark

Groo the Wanderer

Howard the Duck

Usagi Yojimbo


I also love music, all types really. If I had to pick a favorite album of all time I would have to go with:

The Cure: Disintegration. This album is perfect, from beginning to end.

My daughter is also a gamer of sorts, here she is lavishing in all of her Nintendo plushies:

Oh yea, did I mention that I love Pinball more than any other game ever? Because I totally do.

I also like to doodle when I'm bored, as seen below

I drew that when I was bored.

Sometimes, when I'm not gaming or collecting I'll post blogs, here are a couple recent ones:
