The Order: 1886 trailer tries taking cues from a Gears of War classic

This feels vaguely familiar, doesn't it? A somber trailer punctuated by an eerily haunting, soft-spoken song. Gears of War struck gold with this approach many years back with the "Mad World" trailer. The Order: 1886's a...

Amazon's gift to you is free (good) Android titles and (more) cheap videogame downloads

[Update: There are a handful of new deals on videogame downloads, as well as some decent savings on other stuff -- including some portable hard drives that make great external storage for gaming consoles. All updated dis...

Steam sale: Just Cause 2, Garry's Mod, Goat Simulator

Much to my dismay, the Steam Holiday Sale is still going on. Maybe it'll never end. Maybe discounted PC games are the new standard. And then Valve will further slash the prices of select games -- causing a sale within a sale -- a paradox capable of ripping apart the fabric of this fragile existence. Don't enable Valve and its world-ending ways.

Friendly reminder: If you're giving a console as a gift, download updates tonight

Remember the good ol' days when getting a console as a gift meant matching up yellow, red, and white, hitting the power button, and videogames were mere seconds away? Yeah, that's not how things go anymore. New gaming console...

Telltale Games Collection wraps up five games for $55

Unwrapping gifts has a special feeling about it that almost everyone can identify with. Digital presents aren't as satisfying in that regard, but sometimes a package comes along that's enticing enough to warrant buying yourse...

Tiiiimberrrr! Falling trees will be the death of you in Smash Bros.

At this weekend's Shockwave 11 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament, player Lord Cat God found out the hard way that the Villager's tree isn't necessarily loyal to whoever created it. The result was a room full of suddenly boisterous people, and one of the more memorable and unexpected victories for opponent, Awestin.

Steam sale: The Walking Dead, Outlast, Saints Row IV

Steam's trottin' out its (approximately) two-week train of titles, hoping to sell a few more units of each. As the consumer, you get to give a personal yay or nay on every single one of these. You're the emperor in Gladiator that pauses dramatically before casting a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down. You decide whether these games live or die. You really shouldn't have this much power.

Amazon's trying to steal Steam's thunder with a bunch of PC download sales

Tread lightly, Amazon. You're setting up shop in a part of town that's run by Sticky Fingers Newell and his crew. That's not just bad for business; that's bad for your kneecaps. But, here are all your wares anyway -- PC downl...

Steam sale: Shadow Warrior, Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Alien: Isolation

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. Church, football, monster truck rallies. That's what popular convention says the back-half of the weekend's all about, right? No one thinks there's any room for Steam sales. That's why you should proba...

Brett Makedonski's personal picks for Game of the Year 2014

2014 was the most hectic twelve months of my life. Up until late September, I'm fairly certain I spent more of the year on the road than at home. I did so much travelling that I honestly considered eschewing a top five games ...

Call of Duty's first DLC unleashes a 'freak show like no one's ever seen'

As way of a bit of backstory for the zombies add-on to Advanced Warfare, Activision's released a teaser to semi-explain why hordes of undead have made their way to the military shooter. Seems a bomb was dropped to finish one...

Steam sale: Assassin's Creed Unity, Valkyria Chronicles, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

How will you be spending the second day of the Steam Holiday Sale? I suggest by doing anything other than spending money on games you may or may not ever play. Ever try cross-country skiing? In the red states, they shoot stuf...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Narrative Design of 2014

[Image credit: Mike Lambert] It's impossible to pinpoint exactly what it is that makes for great narrative design. It's just something you know when you see. It's more than an outstanding story (although, that's certainl...
