What game will you ring in the New Year with?

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 ...

Lost Constellation is a pay-what-you-want Night In The Woods ghost story
by Jonathan Holmes

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 look fun, well made, and interesting, but they lack that charm that drives others to wave the game's flag and join up with its developers. 

Would Obama have become President if those "Hope" images didn't make cool t-shirts and desktop wallpapers? Would so many people have proudly backed KONY 2012 if the campaign had targeted an evildoer with a harder to pronounce name? Probably not. Marketing is everything, and though it may sound obvious, the most important part of marketing is being marketable. 

Thankfully, a lot of marketable games are also genuinely great. If reaction to Lost Constellation is any indication, Night In The Woods will fit that bill. This Holiday-themed romp is available now for the suggested price of $5, but how much you pay is up to you. I haven't gotten a chance to play it myself, but if it's anywhere as good as this, we'll all have cause to laugh and be disillusioned at the same time. What a feeling!

Wolfenstein's Deathshead looks like a creepy uncle in this Christmas card

Get your exclusive Valentine's card gaming gifs here
by Jonathan Holmes

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 make us feel like we have to spend money, which is great for the larger economy, but potentially bad for your wallet. 

Destructoid is not immune to these pressures. We want to show you, the Destructoid reader, that we love you. So please, take these Valentine's Day-themed romance .gifs (transformed into .gif form by the lovely Ronin Usagi and Kevin Bacon) and spread them to all you hold dear.

Deal North: Cyber Monday gaming deals
by Dale North

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.

You won't find anything mindblowingly different in our Cyber Monday deals, but there are some good finds if you missed last weekend's action. Have a look and see if there's something you'd like.

If nothing else, be sure to get the Sonic Everywhere Pack at Amazon, which contains a bunch of different Sonic games in one package. Even Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine is included! And if you need a 3DS XL, get the new Mario and Luigi: Dream Team bundle at Walmart and Best Buy now.
