Congrats to Destructoid.com - Mr Destructoid playable in Bomberman Live!

by PacoDG


I have emailed Hudson with no reply on whether this is pure lulz coming from the Dtoid guys, which though is possible, this is looking to be pretty true so far. A little background, much like sites such as Joystiq or Kotaku, Destructoid was a gaming blog, but with a little twist, they are more community driven and just a lot more fun, all while still keeping up with the video game news. Destructoid is pure indie, there is no AOL or other such “network” of sites backing them up, pure independent media. So for them to get the connections with Hudson, who is a company that would certainly have the fun enough attitude to support an indie web site that had a recognizable character that represents them (Mr Destructoid) into their game, it all does make sense.

If you see their announcement page for this news (Here) you will see the other new character models and levels that will come in the “Bomb Up Pack 2″ later this month. I have yet to get a press release for the pics of the new characters and levels, so I just await an email back from Hudson to at the least take this out of the Mill o Rumor section. No matter what, hats off from myself and JW here at Xbox360Rally.com for making it into one of the best XBLA games made (if its true!)

For now, here is the other updates that we should be seeing in the DLC pack:

* * Ten New Characters – In addition to Destructoid, other new characters include “Bomberella” the cavewoman and “El Bombito” the matador, resulting in countless new ways for players to customize their in-game Bomberman. Other characters include Alien Bomber, Bomb the Fool, Bomberbell, Flower Bomb, Debbie Downer, Bomber X, and Bomb of Doom. Check out the gallery for a first look at the other characters!

* * Two Additional Levels – New arenas include “Medieval Times,” a level in which bombs and sorcery collide and that allows players to select any gimmick they want, and “Full Tilt,” a level set at a racetrack which features speed circles that dictate how fast players move.
* * One New Game Mode – “Bomb Shelters” will allow players to hide from explosions in a small, fireproof building.
* * Two New Leaderboards – Dominate the competition on two new ranking systems on the Xbox LIVE® network. The new leaderboards will track performance on both a weekly and an all-time basis for the speed circle gimmicks on the new “Full Tilt” map.

  2. Hoodoo Says:

    Sounds awesome if it is true, but where is my Xbox Live Camera support to map my own face (or butt) to the bomberman?

  3. JW Says:

    Hoodoo, if I ever see your ass on XBL, I will hunt you down.


  4. Hoodoo Says:

    Just be glad it is my back side and not the front…. Elephant bomberman.

    Not very fond of destructoid myself. I just don’t see how comments like “Mexicans aren’t people” or “Mexicans don’t know how to use ipods” fit in a gaming podcast. Even jokingly, that’s messed up. They’ve already taken down that mp3, so perhaps they also thought it was uncalled for.

  6. dbqpdb Says:

    Sounds great. But I don’t understand why there are pictures of 11 different chars. They said there would be 10. So there is 1 too much. Which 1 could it be?

    Destructoid.com - we pwn teh innernets. Also, cocks
