Once upon a time, some guy decided to scam his way into E3 armed with nothing but unknown gaming blog and some robot cosplay. Six years later, Destructoid has grown by an incredible degree, expanding far beyond a simple gaming blog and uniting gamers all across the globe into an amazing community. None of which would have happened if it wasn't for Niero's ridiculous scheme.
This year, I'd like all of you to show your love for man who made this all possible. Your assignment is simple: wish Niero a happy birthday! But a simple text reply to this thread isn't going to cut it. You're going to have to get creative! Draw or shop a picture, record a song, film a video, make a sculpture, break out the sewing machine, create an animated short, cook some Dtoid-themed nom-noms... the medium is up to you. Whether or not you have any discernible talent is irrelevant as long as it comes from the heart! We'll be collecting everything posted to put together as a huge mixed-media present for the birthday boy from the entire community. As a reward, you'll get this spiffy sixth anniversary badge, and chances are pretty damn good you'll qualify for the Creative Endeavors badge if you don't already have one.
Big thanks to Aurain for designing the badge this year!
Get to work space monkeys! If possible try to have your work of art posted here by the 16th, but late entries will be accepted until the end of the month.
