Play fighting games to win bobbleheads, MLG 360 cases

7:15 PM on 07.28.2011 // Jesse Cortez

A while back, Destructoid launched, which is a new way to challenge gamers online for points that can be redeemed for prizes. Since its launch, many people have already signed up to check it out and battle their friends online! If this is your first time hearing about this, I'd highly recommend reading our tutorial guide here!

This week, we are proud to announce that the highly requested Mortal Kombat is now available to play! In celebration of this announcement, we are offering a couple of new prizes that you can earn by redeeming your hard-earned points. We will also be hosting some tournaments to give you the chance to win bonus points towards these and other future prizes! Check below for all the juicy details!

Ways to win points:

As always, you can challenge other players to a host of head-to-head competitions. You set the rules with the person you are challenging in games such as Super Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs Capcom 3, and now Mortal Kombat and Starcraft 2!

However, exclusive to this week, Destructoid will be hosting tournaments through By checking out the "Tournaments" tab at 8:00pm Pacific time on Tuesday and Thursday, you will see a list of 8 player tournaments you can join in! These are "bonus point" tournaments, so called because the winner of any of these tournaments will receive an extra 500 points added to their account! Added to the points that you get from just winning the tournament, and you are almost halfway to claiming a prize!

Don't think you have what it takes to win every match? Well, did you know that also has ways to earn points along on top playing matches? By inviting your friends to play by our referral system, you can earn extra points! Not only that, any time you play a match for points, regardless if you win or lose, you have the option of sharing the results on twitter and facebook for even more points.

For more details, be sure to read the Fight Manual and good luck on winning the prizes!

Tournament List



Currently, these are the prizes that are available to claim as of this post. However, check the official prize list here for the up-to-date details!

Prizes currently available:

Destructoid Bobblehead - 3000 points


Odds are you have heard about the Mr. Destructoid Bobblehead. Since their original run, they have been the prized possession of many community members, featured in the background of a Hulu commercial, and difficult to get a hold of one....until now. Exclusive to, we have one of the few remaining bobbleheads that needs a home. Outside of stealing one from someone else, this may be your last opportunity to win one for yourself. So gather up those points!

Calibur11 together with Major League Gaming present the MLG Vault. This Xbox 360 chassis comes with body panels, a controller cradle, android-head and an exclusive digi-cam finish.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.
