What original Xbox game are you most excited to play again?

When coming up with this week's question, I had a thought. Looking back over the past Destructoid Discusses, I never centered one around the Xbox. Now, part of that reason is I've never owned an Xbox. I have been able to play all three gene...


Xbox users will soon be able to gift games to one another

I've heard people say we have a bias against Xbox. But it couldn't be further from the truth; behind the scenes in the wacky Mad Magazine like halls of Destructoid, Xbox One is spoken pretty fondly of. (Heh, it worked, the fools, they will ...


Husband and wife co-op weekend ruins world record Gamerscore

In what can only be considered a monumental mistake, Xbox gamer Ray 'Stallone83' Cox lost his 'highest Gamerscore' world record, which he has held for eleven years straight, after he stopped gaming momentarily to have marital relations with...


Xbox One avatars are getting an extreme makeover

The underrated anouncement from Microsoft at this year's E3 is the fresh new avatars coming later this year. They are much more animate and have higher quality models than before, now resembling the park-goers from Planet Coaster. There is...


Sea of Thieves can be anything!

I don't remember the last time I saw Sea of Thieves, but it doesn't really thrill me. I'm not big on pirates and the whole open world thing is a little old hat. That isn't to say this doesn't look neat, but I don't know how much I can belie...

Xbox Scorpio is a lock for $499 according to Geoff Keighley

Xbox's press conference will run longer than usual

When it comes to E3, I am a creature of routine. Microsoft's presser on Monday morning, Sony's later that night, some stuff in between, then it's demo and interview time. Structure: Sometimes it's good. This E3 has me all out of sorts. EA's...


Xbox isn't bringing its virtual reality plans to E3

Whatever Microsoft has up its sleeve for E3, it allegedly won't include a virtual reality headset. Despite being the logical time to launch this sort of initiative, it seems as if Xbox's take on VR will be pushed into 2018 or beyond. Accord...


Microsoft's E3 plans don't include Halo 6

Xbox's biggest character won't be at the year's biggest video game show. Master Chief will be standing on the sidelines, not helping anchor Microsoft's efforts at E3 2017. (Well, unless he ends up part of some offshoot project.) A 343 Indus...
