Hey hey! Who likes The Destructoid Show? (Hold for applause)

Today, we tackle some hard-hitting video game news: Mass Effect 3 has four player co-op multiplayer, and if that wasn't enough -- it also has an online pass system! In other news, Microsoft has assimilated Twisted Pixel studios. Hopefully we continue to see cool stuff from them. The PSN was almost hacked again, or uh, Cereal. Or something. Blizzard decided to get Tara's attention by putting baby animals in World of Warcraft. Ugh. Finally, Battlefield 3 gets a new trailer and a lovely preview.

For the second half of the show, we brought on Jesse "Tactix" Cortez, Destructoid's west coast community-wrangler, to talk about the 24-hour Extra Life marathon we'll be doing this weekend for charity. We also announce some of the winners of Monday's contests, and announce a few new ones. We've got a copy of Battlefield 3 to give away, along with a great Razer keyboard, three copies of Serious Sam 3: BFE, and our kickass grand prize of kickass A40 Astro gaming headphones. Watch the show for the full details. 

Also, be sure you're following us on Twitter and Facebook because we're going to be throwing out some codes for free games and DLC on there for the rest of the week.

Review: The Gunstringer

A skeleton cowboy marionette driven by revenge. Troma's Lloyd Kaufman driving dangerously. A beautiful, unlockable picture of our own Hamza Aziz. A gator that has sex with a lumberjack. Wait, hold on... what now? 

Yup, this is definitely a Twisted Pixel game. Welcome to The Gunstringer, easily one of the most fun and original titles for Kinect.

Starting now until September 11, you can partake in Ms. Splosion Man's second TMS (Title Managed Storage) challenge. As was the case for the first in-game challenge, which featured our very own Mr. Destructoid, real-world prizes will go to the top participants.

You can find and play the new level from the main menu of Ms. Splosion Man. In it are multiple Fruit F*ckers of Penny Arcade fame, all worth big points. Timely, isn't it? The top three on the leaderboards will get swag bags with prizes from both Twisted Pixel and Penny Arcade.

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!

When Ms. Splosion Man launched last week, Twisted Pixel emailed press and was like "We updated the official website, and it's all new." But at the time, it was a lie: nothing was updated when we had received that email. Well,...
