Is the New Xbox Experience wearing off on you? Do you need something shiny to keep you satisfied? Well, wait no longer! Microsoft has detailed what the next update for the Xbox 360 will include when it hits later this summer.

We’re brokenhearted to be forced to inform you that this next update does not include Facebook, twitter, last.fm, Zune Marketplace, or Instant On 1080p. These updates are coming later, presumably near the time NXE launched last year.

You are getting the Avatar Marketplace, Games on Demand, and a sleugh of other features. It’s quite substantial, really. Hit the break for the full press release!

Just moments ago the ticker on the official Battlefield 1943 website rolled over the forty-three million kills needed to unlock the newest map in the fastest growing sensation to hit the downloadable title market.

Xbox 360 fans united together and achieved what some are considering a record of sorts. Not only did the Microsoftites bog down the servers, have over five million kills the first day, but broke forty-three million kills first!

I consider myself to be a man of fairly average intelligence. I only wear a helmet when the occasion  calls for it, and the bus I rode to school was the traditional length. I test well, I received exemplary grades all throughout my educational career – so why is it then that I’m absolutely dreadful when it comes to puzzle games?

You would think that if I’m capable of determining the value of x, I’d also be able to form a row of blocks in Tetris, or group the matching gems in Bejeweled - but that’s simply not the case. Read more… »

Readers, I have something to admit to you. It’s not easy, but I have never played a single Worms title. Of course, I remember the glory days of the two tanks blasting each other on my PC monitor at school, and to your certain dismay, the reboot of that classic has never graced my home desktop or my console.  However, those days are over and I’m finally ready to open a can of Worms 2: Armageddon.

So, hit the jump if you want to live.

First person shooters are not a rare commodity, and the majority that do exist, don’t derserve the $60 price tag publishers slap on there.  You’ve got your Conflict: Denied Ops, Quantum of Solace, Haze, The Darkness (decent, but not $60), Call of Juarez, Perfect Dark: Zero…I could go on.  However, now that companies are starting to test the limits of downloadable gaming we are starting to see original, and higher budget, titles creeping onto each system.

Last week, PSN released their new FPS The Punisher: No Mercy, which hasn’t fared too well critically, and now both sides are getting a taste of DICE and EA’s Battlefield 1943. So, hit the jump and report in, soldier! Read more… »

It’s quite interesting. Despite all of the hubaloo surrounding the Left 4 Dead 2 boycott, the pre-orders for Valve’s upcoming sequel are twice what they were this time last year.

Are you one of them? Read more… »

Shooting stuff is the American way, is it not? Now then, don’t go starting a controversy! You know how we Americans love our first person shooters! Wanna know something else that sounds a lot like a gun? Fireworks! So now we have to decide: Will we shoot guns on TV, or shoot fireworks in the real world? Such a hard decision. Wait!

At the very least, Battlefield 1943 will release for Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network within the next two weeks. Rabbid fans are eagerly anticipating any confirmation on the release date, and perhaps this listing of achievements is enough to make them “feel better”.

Assumedly, these Achievements are very similiar to the PS3 Trophies. None of them are all that difficult, just time consuming. Check out the full list after the jump!
