Clean sweep victory in Splatoon 2's final Splatfest of 2017

You know what I got for Christmas last year? Try nothing. You know what I'm getting for Christmas this year? You got it. Yet here they are, the good folk of the Splatoon community, bitchin' about sweaters and socks. I'd kill for sweaters an...

It's beginning to look a lot like Smissmas in Team Fortress 2

Not to get all morbid here right before Christmas, but sometimes, I feel like the odds aren't terrible that Team Fortress 2 will outlive me. (Well, all of us, really.) Valve's eternal team-based shooter is chugging along with updates, and t...

First annual Steam awards nominees have been finalized

Y'know what, guys? Turns out Steam is pretty popular. Over 15 million people participated in nominating games for the Steam awards this year. That's pretty good for a set of awards that didn't exist and no one knew about a few weeks ago. Vo...

Planet Coaster has a big free winter update

Winter levels are some of my favorite themed levels in video games. Don't get me wrong, I could go the rest of my life without ever setting foot in snow again, and that'd be a life well lived. But in games? The sights and sounds are whimsi...

This modder made his own Killing Floor 2 Christmas map

The Killing Floor Twisted Christmas events (in which the enemies wear costumes, Christmas music jubilantly plays in the background, and maps like Santa's lair become available) hold a special place in my heart. Tripwire Interactive isn...

Merry Christmas from all of us at Destructoid! So what did you get today? Sure, some of us are a little too old to be getting showered with presents from parents (or don't have parents around anymore), but whether it's a gift from a friend ...
