Microsoft continues its "Countdown to 2011" Xbox Live Marketplace deals today, this time with Hydro Thunder Hurricane and a… Minotaur. The updated version of the classic water racer will run you 400 MS Points today onl...


Above you will see a video of World of Keflings which demonstrates the musical cannons in the game. So, basically, looks to me to be a more complicated version of Mario Paint.  That's not a complaint, mind you. I'v...

Activision made a tactical error in printing up the pack-in download codes for the limited editions of Call of Duty: Black Ops. Seems they completely neglected to include one gender in the process and only codes for male...


This post is half solid, half rumor. The part about the Meat Boy shirts coming to Xbox 360 avatars is definitely legit. This image, spotted on Super Meat Boy's twitter, is the real deal. The second part part of this post is p...


I've spent a lot of MS Points on Rock Band songs, but very few on Avatar items. By "very few" I mean zero. So Harmonix and MTV Games introducing Rock Band Avatar items seems like some kind of ploy into tricking me to purchase...

Ah, Lara. I can't count the amount of times I've put on your outfit and hung around in bars (I'm a lumberjack). But on the days when I'm feeling like hanging out in booty shorts, a shirt that simply refuses to cover my entire...


Following its rebranding, Rare has updated its website to tease us… with something. The UK developer of titles like Perfect Dark and Banjo-Kazooie has taken down its home page and replaced it with a countdown. "07 Days...


Lost Planet 2 is getting patched! Yay! The patch will fix a bunch of bugs and will rebalance a number of things. Here's the break down from Capcom-Unity of what's getting fixed: Respawning points are changed - e.g. the playe...

Has Microsoft's insipid MS Points system left you with some spare fake cash that is utterly useless on its own? Good! Some new Avatar gear is hitting Xbox Live Marketplace today, allowing gamers with too much money and not en...


This week's Deal of the Week isn't a 3D Realms or an EA DICE joint. Hell, it's not even a downloadable game or add-on. According to Major Nelson, this week's offer at a reduced price is Gears of War Avatar crap. Until next Mo...


The Xbox LIVE Avatar store needs Nolan North masks. Period. But while we wait for the anointed one to receive his digital due, we wouldn't mind dressing up our digital likeness as a Sith Apprentice. Or a Storm Trooper. Or as ...

Seriously? I mean, seriously?  The free Avatar Chocobo pet codes that Square Enix gave away to anybody who promoted Final Fantasy XIII online have apparently become huge commodities on eBay. This of course lends itself t...


I know this is Xbox 360 Avatar news, but don't run away just yet! For once, the new merch is actually quite cool. Of course, as always, it probably costs more than you'd ever be willing to pay. The Marketplace has been update...


[Editor's Note: We're not just a (rad) news site -- we also publish opinions/editorials from our community & employees like this one, though be aware that it may not jive with the opinions of Destructoid as a whole, or ho...


If the state of Avatars in my Xbox Live Friends list is any indication, all my friends are apparently closet Master Chiefs, attendees of PAX 09, steam punk aficionados and Halo Waypoint award whores. Seriously, that floating ...


Because Microsoft can, Microsoft is unleashing downloadable pets over the Xbox LIVE Avatar Marketplace tomorrow. According to Major Nelson, the platform publisher plans to release the following twelve pets for download: Large...


In gaming we are often (if not always) tasked with taking on the role of someone else. We put ourselves into a virtual representation, an avatar. Sometimes we're forced into a certain avatar and other times we're left alone t...


I know a passionate group of individuals were waiting on those Transmorphers-themed Avatar items to come out, but I think you'll have to settle for this Transformers merch instead. Sorry, boys. Today is not your day, unfortun...

I believe the word I'm trying to come up with here is "expensive." Needlessly expensive. Jim recently gave us a preview of a single premium Modern Warfare 2 Avatar outfit and already we have the full set of them to glance ove...


Last week we talked about Modern Warfare 2's upcoming Avatar gear, some of which was suggested might be free. Well, it's out tomorrow, but it sure as heck ain't free! Step right up folks, for a cavalcade of digital clothing t...
