Ranking Nintendo's Home Consoles

All aboard the hype train. With the impending launch of the Nintendo Switch, I figured now would be the time to rank Nintendo's home consoles. Despite the Switch being the home/portable hybrid that it is, I will primarily ...


Does Backwards Compatibility Matter to You?

Recently, Grand Theft Auto IV became backwards compatible on the Xbox One. Any time a game becomes backwards compatible, I think to myself "that's rad" and then put on some wicked bad shades and throw on a backwards t-shirt featuring B...


Barbie - Til Games Do Us Part

Hello everyone, Heather and I are back with another episode of Til Games Do Us Part. This time we tackle a beloved game from my wife's childhood, Barbie on the Nintendo Entertainment System. During the video we also cover things like ...


Ghost Recon Wildlands Beta Impressions

Sometimes games come out that defy your expectations. Sometimes games come out that try to break the mold. They open your eyes to new possibilities that you never would have foreseen. They bring something new to the table. But sometim...


The Monday Night Console Wars (Part 2)

This is the second part to my epic comparison between the Console Wars between Nintendo and Sega and the Monday Night Wars between WWE and WCW. I say "epic" not because of how good it is, but based on sheer size alone, as the dtoid bl...


The Monday Night Console Wars (Part 1)

(Hey everybody, before you get started reading this blog, just know that it's very long, easily the longest blog I've ever written, to the point that the Dtoid blog editor won't let me post it all at once. Needless to say, it's a bit o...


Til Games Do Us Part - Home Alone (Genesis)

Hello again everyone. I'm been lazy with posting my new videos, chalk it up to being super busy so I don't have to hold myself accountable. Anyway, the lovely wife and I decided to play some Christmas-themed games in celebration of the...


I still do that podcast thing.

Good evening all. Most of you hopefully remember that before I went away for a bit, I did a podcast. Well, I still do that podcast, and I think it's pretty alright. It's down to just my buddy Lucas and I, as varying circumstances have...


Hall of Game - Earthbound

A little under two years ago, I produced my first real video. That video was a quick and fun review of Mega Man 2. I received a lot of positive feedback, as well as some great constructive criticism. Well, that series has continued in ...


I Want Your Memories!

Well, not literally, I suppose. Some of you may remember that around Halloween, I posted a blog about a special episode we did of the Error Machine Podcast that was dedicated to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, similar to so...


Happy Belated Birthday, NES

(It's been a little while since I've written here on Dtoid, and it appears the editor has changed a bit, so I do apologize in advance if there are any weird formatting issues that I overlooked. Anyway, enjoy!)During the most recent episode ...


It's not goodbye, it's "Smell ya later."

Hey everybody. I've sat here for a few minutes staring blankly at my computer screen trying to find the perfect way to say this. Unfortunately, I've discovered that there is no "perfect" way to say it and I'll just come right out with it: ...

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.
