Angry Birds: 6.5 million downloads on Christmas Day

What. In. The. Hell? Angry Birds was downloaded 6.5 million times on Christmas Day? It's like every device given at Christmas was gifted solely for use with Rovio's silly game. This massive one-day figure includes both free a...

The DTOID Show: Saints Row & Skyrim As Santa-Sims

Hey guys! Hope your holidays went well. This was The Destructoid Show's Monday episode, but I was too preoccupied with wholesome family-time/being hungover/shooting stuff with a pellet gun to post it when it first went up. I...

Brawl in the Family is back with a new Xmas musical comic

One of the niftiest things that Brawl in the Family's Matthew Taranto whips up every year is at least one longer-than-usual Christmas-themed comic set to music. This year, the strip is a parody of "It's Beginning to Look a Lo...

The Second Annual Destructoid Christmas Album
by Chad Concelmo

[Update: The whole album is now available on Bandcamp! Download the whole thing (and get a special bonus track), pick it song by song, or just press play and listen to it in-browser.]

When we put together the Destructoid Christmas Album last year, we never could have predicted how it would turn out. We created it because we thought it would be an amazingly fun thing to do -- the Destructoid editors singing Christmas songs! -- but we had no idea the thing would end up being filled with all kinds of awesome holiday spirit. I mean, there was just so much goddamn holiday spirit, I think we even brought a snowman to life after recording it.

With so much of that holiday spirit left over from last year, we thought we would do it again!

So, just in time for the holidays, we present to you The Second Annual Destructoid Christmas Album.

This one is bigger, badder, and merrier than ever before!

Click here to listen, or check it out here on Bandcamp. The track list and links for individual songs lie below. HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE! We love you all more than words.

Sonic and friends adorn this Christmas tree

The folks at 8bitfix have a holiday tradition. For the past couple of years, they've decorated their Christmas tree with Perler Bead sprites -- the first was a general gaming tree, the second was Mega Man-themed. This year, i...

A very TF2 Christmas with Rudolph the Red Team Pyro

Thomas Truong whipped up this sweet little Christmas-themed video that parodies "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" with Team Fortress 2 characters. It's an old-fashioned, feel-good musical number to get you into the holiday spirit. Only three days left, guys and gals! Rudolph the Red Team Pyro [Truongasm]

Santa Rockstar HD: Pay what you want for a metal Xmas

I don't know about you folks, but Christmas music tends to send me to sleep, well that and the copious amount of festive liquor I imbibe at this time of year. Old St. Nick seems to share my lack of enthusiasm for it and he's...

All Mega64 wants for Christmas is Just Dance 3

When game publishers ask Mega64 to make a commercial for one of their upcoming titles, do they go in with any knowledge of Mega64's body of work? Do they just think, "Oh! Funny Internet people! Here's some money. Send us the video by Wednesday"? Anyway, here's the Mega64 Just Dance 3 commercial. I said, "What the fudge?" at the 1:38 mark.

EA sings a Christmas carol, officially ruins the holidays

I realize that my criticism of EA's business practices may come across as overzealous at times, but even the most dedicated of the publisher's defenders can't possibly stick up for this video -- perhaps the greatest crime El...

Classic 1940s Christmas drama, Luigi style
