The Second Annual Destructoid Christmas Album photo
The Second Annual Destructoid Christmas Album
by Chad Concelmo

[Update: The whole album is now available on Bandcamp! Download the whole thing (and get a special bonus track), pick it song by song, or just press play and listen to it in-browser.]

When we put together the Destructoid Christmas Album last year, we never could have predicted how it would turn out. We created it because we thought it would be an amazingly fun thing to do -- the Destructoid editors singing Christmas songs! -- but we had no idea the thing would end up being filled with all kinds of awesome holiday spirit. I mean, there was just so much goddamn holiday spirit, I think we even brought a snowman to life after recording it.

With so much of that holiday spirit left over from last year, we thought we would do it again!

So, just in time for the holidays, we present to you The Second Annual Destructoid Christmas Album.

This one is bigger, badder, and merrier than ever before!

Click here to listen, or check it out here on Bandcamp. The track list and links for individual songs lie below. HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE! We love you all more than words.

Sonic and friends adorn this Christmas tree

The folks at 8bitfix have a holiday tradition. For the past couple of years, they've decorated their Christmas tree with Perler Bead sprites -- the first was a general gaming tree, the second was Mega Man-themed. This year, i...

A very TF2 Christmas with Rudolph the Red Team Pyro

Thomas Truong whipped up this sweet little Christmas-themed video that parodies "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" with Team Fortress 2 characters. It's an old-fashioned, feel-good musical number to get you into the holiday spirit. Only three days left, guys and gals! Rudolph the Red Team Pyro [Truongasm]

Santa Rockstar HD: Pay what you want for a metal Xmas

I don't know about you folks, but Christmas music tends to send me to sleep, well that and the copious amount of festive liquor I imbibe at this time of year. Old St. Nick seems to share my lack of enthusiasm for it and he's...

All Mega64 wants for Christmas is Just Dance 3

When game publishers ask Mega64 to make a commercial for one of their upcoming titles, do they go in with any knowledge of Mega64's body of work? Do they just think, "Oh! Funny Internet people! Here's some money. Send us the video by Wednesday"? Anyway, here's the Mega64 Just Dance 3 commercial. I said, "What the fudge?" at the 1:38 mark.

EA sings a Christmas carol, officially ruins the holidays

I realize that my criticism of EA's business practices may come across as overzealous at times, but even the most dedicated of the publisher's defenders can't possibly stick up for this video -- perhaps the greatest crime El...

Classic 1940s Christmas drama, Luigi style

We've posted plenty of Dorkly Bits videos in the past, much to your delight or displeasure. I agree that some can be dry or forced, but every so often, something magical happens and everybody is happy. I'd like to think a lo...

Aliens, crime and greed: It's Christmas in DCUO

With the festive season upon us it's time for MMOs to tempt us into ignoring our families and celebrations in favor of new content and Christmas trinkets. DC Universe Online has perfectly captured the holiday spirit with it's...

Help us create this year's Dtoid Holiday Gift Guide!

Slow Enslaved sales due to a 'busy holiday season'

As we've all gathered by now, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West didn't sell as well as hoped in spite of hype and marketing. Namco Bandai has placed the blame on a busy holiday period.  "To be perfectly frank, I think as a c...

Merry Christmas from Destructoid: Tell us what you got!
by Jim Sterling

Merry Christmas from Destructoid, fools! It is Christmas day, where we celebrate the date that Pope Julius I decided upon for the relocation of Jesus Christ's birthday. 

Of course, Christmas is supposed to be about all that peace and love nonsense, but we all know that it's really about the swag. So, once again we ask what kind of neat stuff you received! Share your latest haul with the Destructoid community, and read on below to see what the Destructoid editors received!

Also, HAPPY HOLIDAYS YOU SUGARY LITTLE PIGLETS!

Killzone 3's Helghast get in the Christmas mood

I still remember the awesome holiday wallpaper Guerrilla Games put out for Killzone 2, but it would appear that the Dutch studio has topped itself this year. This time we get a full Helghast choir for our troubles.  Also...

The Destructoid Show Holiday special!

Earlier today, Jon Carnage and I hosted a very special episode of The Destructoid Show. When I say "very special," I mean it in both the heartwarming holiday way, and also in the short-bus kind of way. We counted down our to...
