Regarding rumors

Earlier today, we ran a front page story regarding a rumored "Xbox 360 name change." The source was a forum posting on the excellent Cheap Ass Gamer forums. As it turns out, the post was part of a contest, one put in place to prove one thin...

 
 
 

OMG! Where is the Rock Band 2 review?

Rock Band 2 is on shelves today, at least for Xbox 360 gamers. As a few of you might know, I've been playing it in both preview and retail form for about a month. So where's the review? The embargo for the review was up today, on the day...

 
 
 

PAX!

OK, so first of all, I have to say: whatever cooties you guys gave me at PAX are really doing a number of my body. But ... it was totally worth it! I'm kicking myself in the ass for not hugging/kissing each and every one of you guys -- the...

 
 
 

Cool Dtoid exclusive coming tomorrow!

So you guys ever hear of this Xbox LIVE Arcade game, Castle Crashers? Well, tomorrow we'll be running an EXCLUSIVE video play-through of the first 15 minutes of the game. This video will be found nowhere else because well ... we're the ones...

 
 
 

Geometry Wars 2 gamercard ... oh no!

OK, so there's that now. As if it weren't bad enough that I'm constantly thinking about my Geometry Wars 2 scores relative to my friends list, now MyGamerCard.net has this. Honestly, I haven't spent enough time with Geo Wars 2 to get to...

 
 
 

Wii homebrew ... now what?

So I finally got around to installing the Wii Homebrew channel. OK, now what? What programs are necessary? What's the hotness? I played around with a few things, some of which seemed to either turn off my Wii remote or crash my Wii (homebre...

 
 
 

Songs you want in Rock Band update

Thanks to everyone who has submitted their spreadsheets for the "Songs You Want in Rock Band" project (info can be found here). I want to make a small addendum to my original requests: you don't necessarily HAVE to put why you think the s...

 
 
 
 

What songs do you want in Rock Band 2?

Leaks, leaks, everywhere. Whether they turn out to be true or false, are you happy with the alleged set list you've seen so far for Rock Band 2? In less than a few weeks, I'll be going hands on with the new game at this year's E3. That me...

 
 
 

Viva Captivategas!

I just finished packing for tomorrow's trip to Las Vegas. Capcom's Captivate is this week, folks! While you might see some stuff pop up later this week (Gametrailers is said to have a new RE5 trailer this Friday!), all of the excitement is ...

 
 
 

Etrian Odyssey, new users

This is to all of the Destructoid faithful who have had accounts since the beginning of time, post regularly, live in Vent, have one of those wood paddles with the bouncy ball on it with Ron's face printed on it: Because of the nature of ...

 
 
 
 

A wild box of GTA IV swag appears

Along with copies of the game, I also received: A Statue of Happiness miniature A Liberty City Police Department sweater A Liberty City Police Department t-shirt A ton of stickers A GTA IV pool cue (for serious!) Photos in the gallery fo...

 
 
 
 

Metal Gear Online

So I fired this up for the first time tonight and yeah well ... I guess I'm not playing this any time soon. How big is this FIRST update (of two?), and why in the hell is it taking so long? I've estimated, at the rate it's moving now, that ...

 
 
 

Friend Code, Mario Kart Wii

As promised: 5455 9743 3055 Add me, please, and give me your code in return. I'm not sure how much I'll be around today, but I hope to get in some online play. It would be cool to play with people I know/recognize.

 
 
 

Mario Kart Wii is in the house

Our review copy of Mario Kart Wii just landed. The box had skid marks on it (GET IT?), and came packed with an air-freshener. The box smelled great. I'm going to be busting this one open in a few hours, and will post impressions if I feel...

 
 
 
 

Crypto makes me laugh

I scanned this image from the printed itinerary I received when I checked in for THQ's Gamers Day. Something about it made me giggle -- I've always had a soft spot for Crypto, the tiny, ill-tempered alien from Destroy All Humans. Somethin...

 
 
 

No Rock Band DLC announcment today

Just got a quick email from Harmonix's PR letting us know that there will be no announcement for next week's Rock Band DLC today. For whatever reason, they're going to have to wait until Monday. Now don't go speculating about some huge DL...

 
 
 

Dark Sector impressions

Great lighting. Some parts sure are very ... dark. According to the achievements, I'm through 3 of the game's 10 missions, and I've only played for about an hour and a half. There was one instance where one of the enemies appeared to be wea...

 
 
 
 

My Rock Band machine is broken

As of tonight my Xbox 360 no longer functions. The video card seems to have shit itself while my wife and I were playing Rock Band. I could start blaming it on the Music Store patch and start a horrible rumor, I guess, but what's the point?...

 
 
 
 
 
 

I remember when I used to like music ...

It just occurred to me: I'm old. It wasn't long ago that I was actively seeking out new music of all types, going to shows on the regular, and generally not being old and lame. Things have changed -- I have more responsibility, I'm married,...
