  • waitfortomorrow

    Thanks for this and every show you guys have recorded this year. Lots of great laughs in 2009 and hopefully plenty more to come in 2010! Happy New Year!

  • Spargo CXVII

    Thanks for the show Guys and Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!!!

  • NEW P4TH

    Thanks for doing another show Major and I appreciate that you got it done before the New Year, but this show was honestly boring. I really liked last weeks show alot better and the ones before that. This weeks show just got boring after you guys kept talking about that Left4Dead 2 easter egg. I mean it was funny last week and the week before, but here it just kept dragging. I still appreciate that you were able to do another show especially since everyone is busy getting ready for 2010. That said, Happy New Year to you Major and everyone on the Xbox team. Heres hoping 2010 turns out to be another great year for the Xbox 360.

    p.s fingers crossed that were finally be getting some Rare games.

  • LittleBlueAlien

    …and so ends the crappiest year of the 360 so far. Lets hope that 2010 is better.

  • Megamatman

    Stepto is awesome!

  • DarkGin87

    When Joyride coming out? is the game dead now because nothing been mentioned of it since E3

  • DarkGin87

    ‘NBA Fans can now outfit their Avatar with the favorite team jersey’ – Major Nelson
    ….

    ..
    .
    WHAT GIVES??? How come we haven’t seen a free Xbox basketball and Xbox hockey jersey!!! Is it because they are Canadian sports?

  • mchiefvs360

    Hey, it’s New Year in Australia now, so, thanks for your Tweet Major and Happy New Year to all!

  • CARNAGE RULES

    @LittleBlueAlien – 4 stars because u act like a d!ck

    @CDN Crockett – Basketball a Canadian sport? HAhahahaha stop it just stop it thats like Baseball a Great Britain sport

  • TaygetaVendetta

    How DARE YOU mock Onechanbara, Major Nelson. It is clearly the best game series ever. No sarcasm intended.

    Also you need to get back on announcing what XBLA game(s) is coming out for the week on the show, have missed that the past few weeks.

  • mccalejk

    Ignore CARNAGE RULES, he’s just bitter because he has no life.

  • Quaranj

    Thanks, finally got a chance to listen to it all. If e’s enthusiasm is any indication, we might see our Cthulu pets yet. :)

    @CARNAGE RULES: Do your homework, Basketball was invented by a Canadian in 1891 – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Naismith

  • Shonk jr

    I love the benefits of being a gold member
    and how i get treated so well

    I noticed earlier there is a sale on

    3 months xbox live for silver members £7.99 on a silver account

    I just signed in on my gold account

    3 months xbox live sale save 23% £10.99

    not that i would dare ever give microsoft my cc details again
    due to them clinging onto them like a man hanging off a cliff

    its just the bold face cheek of offering gold members less than silver members

  • Shonk jr

    Your not to bright are you carnage rules baseball was invented by the british

  • CARNAGE RULES

    The low I.Q’s in here are making me laugh.

  • CARNAGE RULES

    The low I.Q’s in here are making me laugh.

  • CARNAGE RULES

    How would you know, mccalejk. You’re just poor silver who cant afford .11 cents a day.

  • LittleBlueAlien

    @Carnage Rules – Call me a dick if you want. As far as what was actually delivered, 2009 was a terrible year for the 360 hence why millions are defecting to the PS3. Keep your head in the sand as long as you want.

  • KP ScuzzyBunny

    Who owns the license for the NFL Jerseys? NBA 2k10 did the Avatar gear the right way by putting the teams #1 player (in someones opinion) number on them instead of the generic EA “00”. Who cares who invented the sport…haven’t heard much lately of any basketball leagues in Canada, or baseball leagues in the UK (and I mean professional leagues that anyone outside your own country has heard of).

  • KP ScuzzyBunny

  • Red Son Rising

    Great show this week as always.. thanks for taking my call on kotaku radio wednsday too, that lil 5minute chat about avatars made my day..

    side note: does anyone remember which show they did an XBOX101 about assigning which console automatically downloads items queued from xbox.com? ive gone back thru the last few but i cant find it and im gettin frustrated manually starting downloads on my new ‘primary’ xbox 360.

  • Shonk jr

    add 2 items to the download que and on the xbox goto downloads
    and select download all

    it will be registered to that console then for downloads

  • informedvirius

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL XBOX LIVE MEMBERS AND XBOX TEAM

  • Computerdude103

    Yayy I was so happy to finally hear E say that something was bad (GI Joe). I can’t remember ever hearing him say something negative before. Congrats!

  • a peeking duck

    GI Joe was terrible. I can’t believe I paid to see that trash. :(
