Microsoft: XBL's friends cap will be raised, we promise


Aug 08
// Jordan Devore
I'm afraid to even do a Google search to see how many times this site has mentioned the 100-friend cap for Xbox LIVE, and how many of those times involved someone of authority saying the restriction would be addressed. Now I ...

New statistical data shows what your games are really worth

Jan 08 // Jonathan Holmes
A lot of people's GOTY, GTA IV (Xbox 360) comes in at a shockingly low $20.75, which is about one third of what the game is worth new. My personal GOTY 2008, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, comes in at a respectable $30.70, about three fifths of its retail value, and Dtoid's pick, Left 4 Dead, comes in at a whopping $49.99, one of the highest of the bunch. However, none of them compare to to Wii Sports's mark-up price of $24.00, which is a hell of a lot more expensive than free.  According to Henrick's report, the overall trend is that the more "hardcore" a game is, the less it's going to be worth in the long run. Apparently "casual" gamers tend to hold onto their games for longer, presumably because they actaully value them. "Hardcore" gamers don't get as attached, which I guess means that they don't like the games that they buy as much. So to recap, Hardcore gamers don't like games that much, and casual gamers actually value videogames. Your popcorn has been pissed in, film at a eleven.

Out of all the "GOTY 2008" lists I've read, I couldn't find one that featured a "winning" game that I felt any attachment to, not even Dtoid's winner Left 4 Dead. It seems that gaming journalists are growing more and more out...

Jul 17
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
First off, big thanks to Qalamari for taking over last week's YTMND feature! Plenty of facepalm worthy moments happened during E3 this year and I'm kind of disappointed that most of them haven't been made into YTMNDs yet. Mor...

Jul 03

This makes it two weeks in a row that my favorite YTMND is a dramatic reading. The Monster Hunter reading gets really good towards the end thanks to the sobbing. Fanboys are priceless. Well, except when they abuse the Communi...

Jun 05
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
My favorite of this week's collection is the realistic NES games collection. A lot of work must have went into creating all of the Photoshops of what videogames would look like in real life. Also, Titfish is the greatest YTMN...

May 15
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
Oh boy, a good collection this week. Winners don't do drugs could have only been created while on drugs, the Tetris rap is awesome, and the Destructoid themed ones are fantastic. It's pretty hard for me to pick a clear winner...

YTMND Thursday: Real Sonic is real


May 08
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
I don't know how or why the real Sonic fad picked up again, but I'm not complaining. Is it wrong that I want to spray paint a hedgehog blue and staple a extra tail on a fox and make them run through absurd obstacle courses an...

Apr 17

 YTMND Thursday is mostly so-so this week. That was until I added the Chad Concelmo YTMND. Anything involving Chad Concelmo makes everything just pure bliss. Otherwise, not much else was that great. The FPS Doug and Arno...

Hopefully you all get at least one good laugh from one of these YTMNDs. I'm not exaggerating when I say it's becoming harder to find good ones. Some weeks are good (like last week), and some weeks are just a pain in the ass t...

Mar 20

My two favorites this week are also the worst ones out of the bunch. The first being the Animal Crossing is tragic spoof. I cried at the original so it just feels wrong to have laughed at the spoof. The worst of course is the...

Feb 14
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
My favorite of this week's collection has to be the Power Glove love story. It takes a simple quote and goes compleletly insane with it. Fun fact: I've never watched The Wizard. I know, I know ... The majority of the rest are...

Jan 31

Looks like the drought continues on from last week. At this rate, I might actually have to skip next week's YTMND Thursday completely. Hopefully not, but if you happen across some YTMNDs, please pass them along. Or do what Bl...

Jan 10
