May the Grohl be with you
People are very excited that it's May 4. Internet content creators on digital services such as Facebook.com and Twitter.com are all pointing out the date. I don't get it. Maybe this is like the day a bunch of people put ...
What would Grohl do?
Amazon isn't offering one of the lowest prices we've seen on an Xbox One bundle, but it might have the most packed in. This Assassin's Creed console bundle comes with the standard Assassin's Creed Unity and Assassin's Cr...
Warning: it's another asylum game
Jump-scare horror games, or "YouTube Bait" as they're often now called, are a dime-a-dozen. Especially ones based in an asylum.
Lost Within is a jump-scare horror game that takes place in an asylum (cue the laugh track). Thankfully, it has a handful of redeeming qualities that elevate it above the competition.
This thing plays games, you know
As a device, I really like the the Amazon Fire TV. In many ways I use it more than my Roku 3, mostly due to the ability to play more interesting games from time to time with the native controller. It's also getting a hea...
The Tale of Esteban
Amiibo enthusiasts are all taking a minute to laugh. That's rare because the vast majority of them have been on-edge for the past week, looking to do the near impossible: secure wave four pre-orders. A tweet from Amazon Games...
Now that's a deal
It's not exactly a new concept for Amazon to bundle the hot game of the week with consoles. That's been happening for a while with the likes of Grand Theft Auto V and Dying Light being two of the more recent example...
And some Bethesda stuff too
Psst. Hey, kid. No, not you; go back to licking the wall. I'm talking to your cool friend. The one that doesn't eat paint chips.
You look like the sort of dude that likes videogames -- maybe asymmetric multiplayer ones. But, ...
Offer ends tomorrow
Amazon is giving away 34 Android apps today, and some of them aren't crap. Take a look!
Consider nabbing Kingdom Rush Origins if you're into tower defense, and Five Nights at Freddy's 2 if you're curious about the animatronic jump-scare craze. Familiar titles like Cut the Rope and World of Goo are in here too, as is the largely unknown but lovable-as-heck Deep Under the Sky.
And a bunch of Grand Theft Auto titles
Amazon's really been trying hard lately to get its digital videogames storefront to take off. There's stiff competition out there, as the likes of Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation all handle digital distribution fairly well. And,...
Coming to iOS and Fire devices
Last I heard of Human Head Studios, it had taken over development on Minimum (and, prior to that, was working on Prey 2 until publisher Bethesda finally said stop). The company is now putting out a mobile horror title called...
Plus a few other deals
Plane tickets are expensive. If you want to go check out the Himalayas, you're looking at several thousand dollars. "In this economy?!," Steven might scoff.
A more affordable route to world tourism is through Ubisoft's rendit...
This is an "Amazon Download" update of sorts, as the publisher has just sent word that Sling TV has launched for the Fire TV and Fire Stick.
New apps have also been added, including Telltale's Game of Thrones series, which is...
And some other deals
Two weeks ago, PlayStation announced that moving forward, all PS4s would come bundled with a copy of The Last of Us: Remastered. Amazon's taking that one step further and packing in yet another game at half price.
Right now, ...
Square Enix has joined forces with...Amazon...for a special promotion involving Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. Basically you go online daily to this site, and "battle" enemies in a group effort type deal to earn prizes.
And a few other noteworthy items
Amazon must've had a bunch of download cards left over following Microsoft's holiday promotion featuring a reduced Xbox One bundle. Apart from several unsold Assassin's Creed packaged consoles, how else could you ex...
Said Ripley to the Android Bishop
[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...
Don't make Gabe hurt you
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...
Can't stop, won't stop
[Update: Amazon's discounted Assassin's Creed Unity down to $29.99 for Monday only. That's half off a game that's days more than a month old. Calls for a quick bump, in my opinion.
All these other videogame deals from th...
Only suckers pay $60 for videogames
I'm not sure why we need to keep designating official titles for different days to spur consumerism around the holidays. I mean, people need (and want) to buy stuff; they'll spend money regardless. Black Friday's fine. It's b...
And other stuff you probably don't need
Cyber Monday's upon us -- a second opportunity for those that were too lazy (or wise) to venture out among the Black Friday masses to secure things we don't need for cheap. This is just a couple days later, and all you need t...
'Stimulate me, you heathens!' - The Economy
Merry Thanksgiving, everyone! (And by "everyone," I mean those in the US; happy Thursday to everyone else.) It's on this, the holiest of days, that we remember the Pilgrims that selflessly died so that we may pursue our god-g...
But the stores are so much more fun
Without exaggeration, Black Friday's sincerely my favorite day of the year. That said, it might surprise you to find out that I rarely buy anything on the single busiest shopping day. I love it because I'm a people watcher. W...
There's plenty more to come
Black Friday seems to get here earlier and earlier every year. Recently, retailers pushed the annual shopping extravaganza to Thanksgiving evening. This year, Amazon's prepping the masses for massive savings with a week of ro...
Touch-based action adventure for Fire phone
Til Morning's Light was developed by WayForward in cooperation with Amazon Game Studios, and it's coming exclusively to the Fire phone.
So far we know that Til Morning's Light is set in a haunted New England mansion th...
Also, accessories galore
An informal poll of the Destructoid staff reveals that we're all senselessly excited for this New 3DS. It doesn't make sense. None of us need one. We should be mad at Nintendo for having us wanting another iteration. But we'r...
Amazon was opportunistic
Amazon's recent acquisition of Twitch.TV for more than $1 billion might come as a surprise to anyone that had been following various suitors' attempts to buy the streaming mogul. As of late, it had seemed as if Google was poi...
For more than $1 billion
[Update: It's confirmed. Amazon has officially acquired streaming site Twitch.TV.
"Amazon will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Twitch for approximately $970 million in cash, as adjusted for the assumption of opt...
Catch that Call of Duty: Advance Warfare Xbox One bundle earlier today? It's a custom system that includes the game and a 1TB HDD for $499.99. The controller is also custom designed, and if you were like me wishing it was available separately well good news! It is.
Amazon has it for $64.99.
Will even include a controller
Skylanders Trap Team is heading to mobile devices as well! And like, the full actual game. Activision is claiming console-quality graphics, and it even comes with its own high performance controller.
This is huge! This will a...
And $24 on Green Man Gaming
Our own Chris Carter gave Wolfenstein: The New Order a favorable review but in the weeks since I've come across even higher praise for MachineGames' take on the iconic series. Some of you out there really, truly dig this game...
