Become Sandy Claws in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Welp, now I feel bad I left my Animal Crossing: New Leaf town to squalor. I assume banditry is on the rise, everyone locks their doors, and floor is filthy with weeds. At least Shrunk's club is booming for the black market s...

You've read the Games Guide, you've read the Hardware and Accessories Guide. I know what you're thinking. "Steven, you goofy-haired jerk, tell me something I don't know."

Fine, smart guy.

Here are a bunch of arbitrary suggestions.

Destructoid Holiday Gift Guide 2013: Hardware/Accessories
by Steven Hansen

Like it or not, Christmas is rearing its frost bitten head yet again. I know you're still a day from sitting through fraught Thanksgiving dinners, but I'm here to remind you in advance and offer you a primer for planning your consumerist immolation.

Early in the week we brought you an exhaustive list of the only games you should buy. Seriously. If it wasn't on that list, there is absolutely zero point to owning it ever and your loved ones will hate you for getting them an off-brand, off-list game.

Just a seething, percolating hate that will end in violence next holiday when you're drunkenly pushed into an armoire by your aunt who sure as heck didn't want a copy of BioShock Infinite when all her friends were talking about The Last of Us. Well who looks stupid and out of fashion now? Her, or the loser whose muffled cries barely escape the armoire? 

Anyway, here's some hardware and accessories you can buy.

Like it or not, Christmas is happening yet again. I know you've yet to sit through fraught Thanksgiving dinners, but I'm here to remind you in advance and offer you a primer for planning your consumerist immolation. 

This list is just games. Hardware, accessories, and miscellany are coming up throughout the day.

Merry Christmas, you filthy animal.

Ring in the New Year with Mega Man Christmas Carol Remix

Mega Man fans are in for one last treat in 2012 -- another Mega Man Christmas Carol fangame! After the first and second iterations, Sprites Inc. is back with a third title, which is a remixed version of the first one with the new engine.

Christmas Carol Remix features five difficulty levels, three characters, new content, and achievements, all on top of a remastered version of the first Christmas Carol. Of course, sick holiday chiptunes make a welcome return.

You can download it for free here -- just be aware that the creator is constantly tweaking the game with balance patches and bug fixes.
