This Destiny guitar medley is pretty rockin'

One of the best soundtracks I listened to all year was easily Destiny. For all the problems that the game had, it was a joy to listen to, especially while in orbit waiting for a group or a connection. Guitarist Ryan Abu...

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?

PSA: Today is the last day to register for the free Super Smash Bros. soundtracks

If you are anything like me, you put off registering products on Club Nintendo until months (or years) later, when they aren't worth as much. If you bought both the 3DS and the Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. and you have...

Grab some headphones and listen to this Hotline Miami 2 song

The music and gameplay of Hotline Miami are so intertwined in my mind that I'm hesitant to listen to tracks off the sequel's soundtrack beforehand. Oh, what the hell? One can't hurt! This song, "The Way Home, comes from Magi...

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.

OC ReMix celebrates turning 15 with, yep, you guessed it photo
OC ReMix celebrates turning 15 with, yep, you guessed it
by Jordan Devore

OverClocked ReMix has given us a ton of amazing remixes over the years. Longer than I realize, sometimes -- the game music community celebrated its 15th anniversary this week. Crazy.

For the big one-five, the site has released 15 new remixes from 15 different game systems. You can listen to those here, free of charge. Lot of fun titles on the list, including Chrono Trigger, Demon's Souls, and, haha, Super Mario Sunshine. Here's to 15 more years.

Got a favorite OC ReMix album? Mine is Donkey Kong Country 2: Serious Monkey Business.

Grab some free tunes from the Dungeonmans soundtrack photo
Grab some free tunes from the Dungeonmans soundtrack
by Darren Nakamura

I spent a lot of time listening to Hitoshi Sakimoto's work with the soundtrack for Final Fantasy Tactics. Heck, it is still in my rotation for background music during board game nights. From the sound of it, Andrew "zircon" Aversa did the same, as he composed the soundtrack for the Kickstarter-funded roguelike Dungeonmans taking inspiration from Sakimoto.

We have some exclusive tracks available for download. "Cimmerian Cavern" is subdued, and like a musty cave, it almost feels damp itself. "The Tower Invincible" evokes a more adventurous feeling, like a song played by minstrels as knights march into battle. Check them out below, or head to OverClocked for the full album.
