Valentine's Day-themed event
After a long holiday, Bungie is back to work this week. For the first update of the new year, Destiny will be adding an event not unlike the Festival of the Lost from Halloween. Except since this one is coming in February, it...
Here's what Valve had to say
Five days after we reported that Steam users were seeing account information that didn't belong to them, Valve has issued a public statement regarding that Christmas kerfuffle. A previous comment from a Valve representative c...
If you say 4K or 1080p, I'll cut you
Just three more days (for me, I don't know about you weirdos outside of California) and 2015 is over. Any New Year's Resolutions you have that are related to gaming? I personally want to start playing Rocksmith at least ...
Walking in a winter gamin' land
[Header art by MeanderBot.]
If you're reading this today, you're probably on the toilet, trying to duck away from that weird cousin/uncle/stranger who always shows up on Christmas. I feel you, I'm there too.
Take a deep breath, you'll be fine (and drink the spiked egg nog when you get out). But before you get back up, why not take a trip down memory lane/34th street with us?
The Ghost of Deals Present
It's finally Christmas here in the United States; a country known for big ol' prisons and giving video game consoles as Christmas gifts. Unless something drastic has changed in the past year, the post-dinner console unboxing ...
Snowballs and Beast vs. Slasher mode
Today is Christmas Eve for those who celebrate the holiday, and many folks are preparing to see their families and drink entirely too much egg nog. They'll also get into political arguments, Uncle Billy will get embarrassingl...
Remember the Destructoid Christmas album
Happy holidays, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
It is that time of year when you annoy entertain your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and unsuspecting opponents on Xbox Live with your holiday music. As a professional at annoying entertaining, I figured I'd gift you this virtual mixtape of my favorite ditties to liven up the mood wherever you are.
No Scrooges are allowed to take part
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Mince pies, gingerbread men, last-minute panic buying of presents, and, of course, shutting yourself away from your family for the entire time to take part in some of the many i...
Beating Gabe to the punch
GOG and GamersGate had their respective Winter sales earlier this month, but it's now GMG's turn to bust out the "savings." Today the digital retailer launched their 2015 Winter sale with discounts up 92% off after a stacking...
'Buy my book!' ~ Jay Sherman
While much of modern society has moved on to the world of "electrons and information", there are two demographics that still eat up the printed page: kids and old people. Interestingly enough, these are also the two age group...
Here comes a Snow Day!

Probably the best Xbox One deal?
Update: More bundles selling out! The ones striked-out below are no longer in stock. No word if they'll return for Cyber Monday next week.
If you want an Xbox One, you better be ready at the stroke of midnight Thursday (yep, ...
'Tis the season
It's almost December, and you know what that means: Frenzied shopping for your loved ones (and maybe a few things for yourself).

Wake up the King
Chris gave a nod to Final Fantasy's Geomancer in honor of Earth Day, which I thought was an original choice. It got me thinking about games that are ever so vaguely related to the celebration. I'm sure you have one in mind.
When you're playing Final Fantasy, it's easy to gravitate towards certain marquee jobs. A White Mage for example. Everyone needs a healer, right? You gotta have a Black Mage too. Oh, and a tank, like a Warrior or a Dark Knigh...
Or do you prefer to watch balls drop?
New Year's Eve was always my favorite holiday growing up. Not only were there yummy snacks galore at whatever party my parents dragged me to each year, but the adults were normally so preoccupied with drinking and pretending ...
'Hello!' Interested in a coffin?'
The success of Night In The Woods on Kickstarter once again proved that the best way to win at crowd funding is to create something that people actively want to lob on to their own image/identity. So many games on Kikcstarter...
Time to clear out trading cards, backgrounds, and emoticons
[Update: The auction has been temporarily shut down, most likely due to the incredible amount of Gem Sacks that were being sold on the marketplace, driving the cost down and inflating the auctions. There are suspicions that u...
I'm a total sucker for the holiday season. Christmas cards, particularly those featuring creepy-ass uncanny-valley videogame men wearing festive sweaters, are no exception.
In the hope that I'm not alone, I had to share this ...
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...
Wi U and 2DS bundles
Nintendo announced five new hardware bundles for this Fall season this morning.
The Super Mario 3D World Deluxe Set launches in mid-September. For $299 you'll get the Wii U Deluxe Set, Super Mario 3D World, and Nintendo Land....
Let's hear it
Long weekends are the best weekends. Are you playing anything of particular importance today? Even if you're not, that's fine too! We've all got backlogs. Even the mighty Chris Carter.
For me, it'll be more Advance Wars -- go...
Spread the love
It's Valentine's Day, which means there may be someone in your life that you feel excited (or obligated) to show how much you love them, most likely with candy, cards, or some other physical things. It's a holiday designed to...
Ever since getting partway through its final world, I've been ignoring Plants vs. Zombies 2 -- but Plants vs. Zombies 2 has not been ignoring me. Those push notifications haven't compelled me to return yet, though PopCap's p...
'Tis the season
If you own Mojang's Scrolls, you will be able to give a copy to a friend as a gift this holiday season. All you need to do is log into your Mojang account, and click on the "Send to a friend" button. A code will be sent to th...
Iceland must be weird
I love CCP. They are a bunch of crazy guys, and every time they come out with a video it's always bizarre and amazing. To celebrate the holiday's in EVE Online, the guys at CCP are giving out in-game gifts on an advent calan...
The night St. Nicholas flipped
Certainly one of the strangest releases of 2013, Viscera Cleanup Detail now has a holiday-themed version available for purchase on Steam, Santa's Rampage. Set in the workshop at the North Pole, players must clean the ca...
Hey, let's cyber!
You know what Cyber Monday is, right? It's the same crap from Black Friday, just a few days later. It's a second chance for many that missed the good stuff last week. It's the better of the two, as you won't get trampled.
I hope you have some money left!
Bananas! We've hit you with a ton of deals already, and many of them are still valid, so if you haven't checked our listings yet, check out:
