Everything was going just fine. The podcast was humming along normally. Heck, we made it all the way through fanmail, but then, the Wall Street Journal happened. You know what an "Unsung Videogame Hero" of 2010 was, according to WSJ? Mass Effect 2. Yeah, the podcast pretty much had to stop there. W...

2011 is upon us and, to celebrate, here's a new episode of that Xbox 360 Fancast. This week, we run down Joystiq's top ten games of 2010. We also discuss what little news there is and just generally try to fill up some time. More important than any of those things, however, is the birth of a new he...

It's the second-to-last Monday of the year and ... it feels like it. There isn't much news out there this week, so we take a more free-form approach with episode 193. We've got the usual gabbery (that's a word, right?) of what we've been playing, but we've also got updates on the X3F Flab-Off and s...

The gaming industry is essentially over and done with 2010. All the major releases are out, and the bulk of sales have been tallied. In short, it should be a time for weary developers, publishers and bloggers to rest. And yet, it seems someone missed the memo, as the news just keeps pouring in. Thi...

You're in for quite the piping-hot treat of justice today, as the Xbox 360 Fancast crew find themselves in rare form for the 190th episode of this podcasting institution. There's plenty of punny taglines for our coffee-themed super hero we've concocted in our noggins, but there's also talk of this ...

There's a lot of talk about important things in this week's episode of X3F. We talk up the huge sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops and, of course, the impending sale of Harmonix. These things pale in comparison to the real topic of conversation however, because you must know that there is an intruder...

It's finally here, Xbox 360 Fancast 187. You're all asking yourselves: Did they get that interview with Ice T? The answer, of course, is kind of. Yes, we also talk about video games, giving special time to both Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 and Fable 3. And of course, with Kinect launching in ju...

Put simply, we're all champing at the bit to play us some Halo: Reach. This podcast is a formality, really, something we are forced to do out of some bizarre sense of tradition and duty. If we had our druthers (and early copies, which we don't), we'd be playing Halo: Reach. As it stands, all we can...

It may be a holiday here in the US, but the show must go on! This isn't a traditional episode -- instead, we're just talking PAX Prime 2010, answering some questions from Twitter and addressing some fanmail. We're trying to keep it casual, you know, so pull up a chair, grab a frosty beverage and ki...
