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!


Xbox 360 MLG Vault Case - 4000 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. This case is compatible with all Calibur11 Vault accessories and just looks pretty darn awesome. Save up your points for a chance to win this prize!

To redeem these prizes, once you have the right amount of points, send an email to [email protected] with your email and name on and we will let you know if they have been claimed already.

Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?

After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now.

When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.

I found this weird game called Samurai Heroes for 8 dollars today. Its not bad.

Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.

Played all of Life is Strange today in one sitting. Bloody hell. You should all play it. Only game this year to make me cry. Bravo developers. Possibly the most valuable thing I've ever bought for £10.

Last night, got farther than ever in Wasteland 2. This is my third playthrough-once thru beta, once through the orig version, now on Directors cut. Worth the restart, and it speaks highly of the game that I like it enough to do this. DAMONTA HERE I COME!

GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO. Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.

50 hours in and I can safely say that Xenoblade is the best JRPG I've played in years. Should hopefully be finished in time for X too!

One job down on day I should have off, now for the other job.

I beat Murasaki Baby on PS Vita. Easy 100% trophy. That ending theme tho.

I have 34 games in my Steam queue alone, 4 on xbone, and a handful on handhelds. I have 3 days to make a dent. Time's up, let's do this!

Community Question: To make up for yesterday, I decided to ask a second Community Question today. Have you taken advantage of any Black Friday deals today? If so, what did you purchase? Feel free to share pictures of your spoils, if you have any.

Some Black Friday artwork arrived today ! [img][/img]

Black Friday is getting to me. All these games I kinda, maybe want that are at anywhere between respectable and deep discounts, but I'm not sure if I want to bite. I'm wondering if Godzilla's worth $12? After checking review scores, I'm not sure.

Black Friday slowly seems to creep its way onto Continental Europe, but I'm not complaining! I managed to get my grubby little paws on a new physical copy of The Wonderful 101 for €20! Thanks, America!
Archelon avatarArchelon
Community Question: Since I missed yesterday, I am going to do something a little different today. Are there any questions you would like to ask me for a change? If so, please feel free. I may add a second Community Question later today, as well.

Isn't PES 2016 Free-to-Play model just the demo with extra crap thrown in?
