“Our community demanded a nude cooking show where baby snow leopards maul a Nintendo.” said Yanier Gonzalez, Destructoid’s founder and publisher. “Revision3 is the ideal platform to launch this bold new vision in video game entertainment. Even your grandma will be tickled.”
“When I heard Yanier’s original pitch for a snow leopard/Nintendo nude cooking show, I immediately said: how about a show about videogame news instead,” said Ryan Vance, vice president of programming and production, Revision3. “With this show, we’re extending Destructoid.com’s editorial reach to online video and providing its more than 2 million rabid users a brand new way to interact with this amazing content. We’re extremely excited to be working with the entire D-toid team!”
