Rockstar recently unveiled some cool new features for its Social Club, the most notable being the addition of cross-platform "crews" for the purpose of challenging other players in online feuds. We'll see crews play a big part in the multiplayer component of the upcoming Max Payne 3, Grand Theft Auto V, and other future Rockstar titles. In addition to some awesome social features, crew members also get sweet little logos on their in-game avatars. Check out the video of our logo getting created by the guys over at Rockstar!
Crews come in two flavors: public and private. Private crews can be created by anyone -- in fact, you can go make one right now if you want! -- but they're limited to 250 members. Public crews, on the other hand, are created by Rockstar themselves and have no member cap. Apparently it pays to have friends in high places, because Rockstar was kind enough to create a public crew just for Destructoid!
To join, just head on over to the Social Club to create an account, and then click the little yellow Join button on our crew page. We'll be getting the whole crew together next Tuesday when Max Payne 3 releases and kicking ass all over the bullet-riddled Internet, so join up now!
HEY! YOU! Yes, YOU. You're wonderful. Do you know why you're wonderful? Because you (humor me) watch The Destructoid Show, and today... We've celebrated our 300th episode. Oh boy. 300.
Anyway, aside from day-drinking and som...

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.
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.
Following Mr. Destructoid's inclusion in the Ms. Splosion Man pinball table for Pinball FX2, our mischievous mascot has turned up in Arcade Jumper!, an upcoming iOS title by Black Hive Media.

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!
The first TMS challenge for Ms. Splosion Man is now available and features Mr. Destructoid as a chasebot! All you need to do to get this free update is go to the "play challenge" section on the Ms. Splosion Man main menu and download it. Simple!
The challenge is only available until end of day July 31 and the top three in the leaderboards for this challenge will win some awesome prizes. The top three winners of the challenge will get a Ms. Splosion Man light-up statue, a super rare Mr. Destructoid Bobblehead and a bunch of shirts and posters from Twisted Pixel and us. One random contestant will also get a Twisted Pixel prize pack just for competing!
Twisted Pixel plans on having a ton of these TMS challenges all through the year. Oh, and because they really love their fans, you can now get free DLC for the original 'Splosion Man! EXPLODE!
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.
What a pimp.
Special thanks to Kenny Redublo and Tactix for rocking the helmet as well as the lovely girls from Nyko. Want to volunteer to be Mr. Destructoid at an upcoming gaming event that's happening in your city? Email email@example.com and let us know!
It's been a good couple of weeks since I've hamfistedly typed some ridiculous shpeel about how you guys should buy something, and frankly, that's way too long. The infamous Squidbear shirts are back in stock.
