by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The next game to star Mr. Destructoid is BurgerTime World Tour! The news was revealed at our PAX Prime panel on Sunday where we shared the news by throwing McDonalds hamburgers into the crowd. Yes, we have the best ideas ever. In fact, someone even threw a hamburger back at us! It was great. We'll have all the video from the panel up soon.

Until then, know that the 3D revival of the BurgerTime series will be coming to the PlayStation Network, WiiWare and Xbox Live Arcade sometime next month. Follow the BurgerTime Twitter for all the latest updates on the game.

Ms. Splosion Man pinball out August 31, playable at PAX photo
Ms. Splosion Man pinball out August 31, playable at PAX
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Pinball FX2's next pinball table is based on Twisted Pixel's Ms. Splosion Man and it's set to come out on August 31 for the Xbox 360. The collaboration between Zen Studios and Twisted Pixel sees Splosin Man and Ms. Splosion Man 'sploding it up in pinball form. Best of all, the pinball table will only be 240 Microsoft Points.

The table also sees Mr. Destructoid staring right into your cursed soul. It's awesome. The eyes light up and Destructoid's mouth even opens up. You can catch a glimpse of all the action in the debut trailer.

BONUS! The new Ms. Splosion Man pinball table will be playable at PAX this weekend! Just head over to the Microsoft booth to get hands on with the game.

Destructoid wants your balls in Ms. Splosion Man pinball
by Niero Gonzalez

Do you know how long we've been wanting to talk about this?  I swear it's like a walking around with grenades in your shorts!  I'm so ridiculously excited to announce today that Mr. Destructoid is in Pinball FX2 on the Xbox 360!  

This creative collaboration with Zen Studios and Twisted Pixel on their upcoming Ms. Splosion Man pinball table, available later this summer as downloadable content on Xbox Live Arcade. If you read our original announcement you'll now understand what Nick was sheepishly hinting at.  Mr. Destructoid appears on the upper left corner of the pinball table, staring ominously back at the gutter. If you're brave enough to hit him ten times (his eyes light up!) his mouth opens and a sub-mission then commences. BANANAS!

E3: Being Mr. Destructoid

At E3, one lucky fan was able to don the amazing Mr. Destructoid helmet. That lucky person was then able to hang out with me. I then used this magical moment as an excuse to go shoot videos of hot E3 girls. Typical Venom.

Exclusive: Destructoid is all up in Retro City Rampage photo
Exclusive: Destructoid is all up in Retro City Rampage
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Brian Provinciano's Retro City Rampage is coming out for Xbox Live Arcade this summer. The XBLA version of the game will have widescreen support, a challenge mode, a character creator mode, and video replays, and it now features Mr. Destructoid as a playable character! You'll be able to find and equip the Destructoid helmet, which will give you some special powers -- but that will be revealed a little later.

Not only that, but Destructoid is also a PLAYABLE level! At some point during your quest in Retro City Rampage, you will have to find Jonathan Holmes to get a special item. The quest is simple enough -- that is, until Dr. Von Buttnick steals the special item and goes on a city-wide rampage in the giant Destructoid robot!

Boom! Happy birthday, Destructoid readers. We'll have more on the Destructoid quest in Retro City Rampage soon. Until then, check out both of the videos featuring the Destructoid appearances.

Win this Hot Topic hat that looks like Mr. Destructoid photo
Win this Hot Topic hat that looks like Mr. Destructoid
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

[Update] Contest closed! Winners are JTHomeslice ("Despite everyone's protests, Hamza stuck to his idea of nipple tassels attached to hats.), mix and John Wilson!

So there's this hat trend right now where people are wearing beanies that look like animals and other neat things. As some of you have actually pointed out to us already, there's even a beanie that looks like our beloved Mr. Destructoid. No, this isn't an official Mr. Destructoid hat. The design is actually based on the Smoking Robot toy from the 80s, which is what our mascot is based on too.

Still, this beanie is a pretty cool and does a pretty good job at keeping your head warm. Hot Topic sells the hats for just $19.99 and have provided Destructoid with three hats to give out to you! To win, you're going to need to give the picture of me wearing the beanie in the gallery some kind of funny caption.

The best three captions will win the hat. Either simply write it out or put the caption on the image and leave your creation in the comments below. Keep the image safe for work and contest is open to US and Canadian residents only. You have until February 25 at 11:59PM CST to enter. Good luck!
