Laura Shigihara does a song for Animal Crossing's cafe pigeon Brewster

I always love a good Laura Shigihara piano/vocal piece. Though she is probably best known for the iconic credits song from Plants vs. Zombies, these days when her name comes up I mostly think about To the Moon's haunting "Ev...

Little Mac's true calling revealed photo
Little Mac's true calling revealed
by Jonathan Holmes

Believe it or not, but someone at Nintendo actually liked the Captain Falcon's ass tribute amiibo video we did last month. Thanks to that happenstance, I ended up with an extra Little Mac amiibo a couple of days ago. I felt it was my solemn duty to take this fortuitous event as an opportunity for video production, but how do you follow something like Captain Falcon's ass? Rapping about parts of Mac's body would just end up feeling derivative and tacked on.

Or would it? 

If Nintendo likes this episode of Samba de Amiibo as much as the original, then expect to see more amiibo music videos from Destructoid in the future. I'm also thinking of pitching Samus and Sagat to them for release on Nintendo Video. Do you think they'll go for it?

The best One Direction songs to describe indescribable gaming feelings photo
The best One Direction songs to describe indescribable gaming feelings
by Brett Makedonski

It's 2015. It's an age of sexiness and carelessness, a time when Snapchat and Tinder are far more popular than table etiquette apps (much to my chagrin). Yet, this blasted Internet webpage is writing about decidedly unsexy topics like Arizona. Is our target audience residents of retirement homes and scorpion-sting medical wards? No. God no.

I think it's time we freshen things up around here. According to Twitter (hey, I'm hip enough to tweet), One Direction is quite the popular topic these days. All the teens are constantly concerned with Liam's, ummm, "endowment," and how all sex is bad unless it's with Harry.

After perusing the band's Wikipedia page for two minutes, I got to wondering. What if 1D (that's what the kids call them) is really singing some well-veiled gaming anthems? Sure, on the surface, the songs may appear to be ballads crooning to the loves of their lives that week, but I'm pretty sure the love of their lives for forever is gaming.

These are the top One Direction songs that describe indescribable gaming moments, and it's definitely not a reach at tricking people on search engines. Definitely not.
