The Joystiq staff, among many other lucky gamers, was fortunate enough to get early access to the Halo: Reach beta this week. Rather than waste all this fun on ourselves, we've decided to check in with you, our loyal listeners. Grab this special Xbox 360 Fancast episode to see what we think of the...

Halo: Reach plays a big part of this week's Xbox 360 Fancast. Our own Xav de Matos played the game for several hours last week, and we grill him for the details (jet packs!). Of course, we also take a few minutes to discuss the news out of Captivate 2010 as well as the other important things that h...

A great many things happen on the Xbox 360 Fancast this week. Of course we talk about the latest news -- including Halo: Reach and the "moistness level" it inspires -- but we also introduce the first X3F produced video game, HinkleBlaster. Also, finally, it's time to roll out our latest recurring f...

Suffice it to say that there is far too much talk about Justin Bieber this week. A week ago, none of us knew who he was. This week? Fascinated. There's also plenty of talk about video games, including the announcement of Respawn Entertainment, the new outfit founded by ex Infinity Ward heads, Jason...

PAX East may be over, but that doesn't mean we aren't done talking about it. Perhaps you've heard that something awfully strange (and illegal) went down there. Yes, the Breach theft. We spend a hefty chunk of the show discussing that this week, along with plenty of news (Halo: Reach!) fan mail and...

PAX East has come to an end, and the whole X3F crew is back together again. In a manner of speaking anyway. We've got two major segments this week. First, Richard grills Alexander and Dave about the magic that was PAX -- as well as some of the news that broke during the show. And second, since Xav...

This is the part in the post where we make some incredible introduction about how this episode -- recorded following day one of PAX East 2010 -- will change your lives. It will, but that's not the point. Forget that. We're here to tell you about two things: First, you really need to get your butts...

Rejoice, for the Xbox 360 Fancast crew is whole once again. This week, we have not two, not three, but all four of the Fancasters present and accounted for. We all even manage to stay for the whole episode. How about that? Together, we discuss the rumored Xbox 360 hardware revisions, supposed USB s...

It's another week of putting up with a sub-par Richard-less Xbox 360 Fancast, we're afraid, made even worse by the fact we're down two people this week -- Xav won't be joining us. Alexander and Dave try to make a show for you all still, but without the love and guidance of the other two, things kin...

It's a tough week for the Fancasters, who soldier on throughout a show without their usual host, Richard. He's the glue that holds this whole mess of madness, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 praise and Halo: Reach beta excitement together, y'know? Still, a podcast is what you expect and we try our best...

We're sure that somewhere, someday, gamers will learn what a boycott actually is. Thankfully, that day is still far in the future, allowing us to bask in the hilarity. Also featured on the show this week: News, mail and gold medal fever. But mostly it's just us jawing about how incomprehensible the...

Update 2: The file should be available for direct download and subscribers now. Yeah, the Fancast is a little late this week. We had a little technical problem. You see, technically, we forgot to hit the record button the first time we did the show. We made sure to rectify this error the second ti...
