Doing that podcast thing, ask us questions.

The Error Machine Podcast is recording at 6pm (EST) tonight, so send some questions our way. Doesn't really matter what kind of question, gaming or not. Although we will be briefly discussing WWE Fast Lane if you have thoughts on that....


Weekly Top 5: Favorite Opening Sequences

Sometimes the opening of a game is all you need to decide if you want to continue playing. It's the first impression you get for the game, and if it doesn't capture you right away, then all may be lost. Before games started having cin...


Hall of Game: Kirby's Pinball Land

Hey everybody! Welcome to the new episode of my recent adventures in video content! An exciting new venture, for sure. This week, in anticipation for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, I took a look at one of the finer titles on the origina...


My Collection: One Year Later

Whenever you commit to writing a weekly/monthly/whatever series, you get a bit burnt out, just ask OpiumHerz. I can only write so many Top 5 lists before both I and the reader need a break, though I do appreciate all the feedback I ge...


Weekly Top 5: Last Gen Hidden Gems (Console)

It seems like I'm always more passionate about a game when it's a hidden gem. It's like finding buried treasure; you've found this amazing thing and no one knows about it but you. But when it comes to videogames, instead of keeping th...


Weekly Top 5: Non-Exclusive 16-Bit Games

How's that for a category name? Rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it? Over the course of the last few weeks I've written about my favorite Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo exclusive games, so I figured the best way to round out this ...


Weekly Top 5: Super Nintendo Games

Usually I do an honorable mention on these lists, which is basically a cheap way for me to include the game that barely missed the cut and give it some recognition, but this was, so far, the hardest list for me to narrow down. This ea...


Weekly Top 5: Sega Genesis Games

I just recently began reading Console Wars by Blake J. Harris, which chronicles the 16-bit videogame war between Sega and Nintendo. I can't put it down, and I highly suggest it for anyone interested in videogame history. As I'm readin...


An Apology to a Fellow Dtoider

For those of you who don't know, I recently joined the recap team for the Destructoid community blogs, and my recap from this past Friday was met with some controversy. And by “controversy” I mean “a couple people did...

Greetings and salutations.

TheDustinThomas here, you probably don't know me, but I write things here on Destructoid from time to time. Occasionally I get on the front page:

The Most Inexplicably-Often Rented Games At Blockbuster

The Top 10 Videogame Pro Wrestlers

A Retrospective of Pro Wrestling Videogames from the Perspective of a Pro Wrestler

I'm also the host of a pretty sexy gaming podcast that I do with a couple buddies of mine. You can download and subscribe to it here. You should totally do that.

All of my games writing you can find on DToid, but I also write about other things on my personal blog. Here's my top 5 most read blogs:

Let Me Tell You About My $250 T-Shirts

Tempting of the Doon

5 Ways Getting in Shape Has Messed with my Head

Tim Lambesis: A Fan's Struggle to Understand

Why I Already Dislike Planet Fitness

You may notice that most of those blogs are somehow related to pro wrestling. Why? Because I spent 10 years as a professional wrestler before retiring in October 2013 due to back injuries. I actually wasn't too bad.

A bit about me? Well, obviously I love to write. It's not a paying gig yet, but I'm certainly trying to make that happen.

I'm a happily married man, and my wife is smokin' hot.

I have a huge, manly beard.

God comes first in my life above all else. I'm a leader at my church, as well as the head of our media department.

I've been a metalhead pretty much my entire life.

I'm also a die hard fan of The Simpsons.

Other miscellaneous fact.
