Xbox Live Discontinues Original Xbox support, Increased Friend Cap a Possiblity?

Marc Whitten, Xbox Live's General Manager has recently posted a blog over at the Xbox 360 Press website.

He has stated that on April 15th, 2010 Support for Original Xbox games, played through either off of a disc, or through the Xbox Originals service will no longer work on Xbox Live.

The main reason for this has not been stated specifically, but he goes on to say that they will continue to evolve the features of the service, and they need to make changes to the service that are incompatible with Original Xbox games.

I'm just taking a wild guess here and saying that the main change he's referring to is the 100 friend cap on games with a built-in friends list like Halo 2. If so, I would definitely not mind having a higher friends list cap, seeing as how the 100 friend limit has kind of become a burden on me a number of times.

He also mentions something about Natal support with Xbox Live, and I have to imagine that will be something big. I guess we'll just have to wait till more details get trickled out. Until then, you can check out the original article Here.

The Last Airbender TV Spot

I thought they were supposed to keep a lid on these TV spots? Lol.

Oh man, this movie looks good.

Sonic 4 Ep.1 Trailer


This summer, the first of many awesome sonic titles will arrived.

I am buying this day one on XBLA.

The Behemoth finally names it's third game!

Remember a while ago when The Behemoth released Alien Hominid? Then remember how they went on to release the critically acclaimed Xbox Live Arcade title Castle Crashers? Of course you remember! If you don't, you're a jerk. Anyway, a while after that, they announced they were working on a third game, simply known as "Game 3". many Speculated that this was the official name of the game, but Tom Fulp (Head of The Behemoth and founder of stated that this was, in fact, not the official name and it would later be renamed to something more appropriate.

Yesterday, The Behemoth released a new trailer for the game on Youtube, which you can watch below:

That's right folks! We can now start calling this game of the third variety by it's official title:

BattleBlock Theater

The trailer itself doesn't really show much of anything new, beyond the title... however, the game still looks pretty interesting and I'm digging the Soviet Russian inspired soundtrack. What I'm digging even more is the Entirely Acapella track at the end there, good stuff guys, good stuff.

Be sure to keep an eye out for this one, as it's currently slated to be released somewhere early 2010.

TJ What's New? Away We Go

Is Away We Go a tantalizing look into the relationships of people or a uneven mess of hilarity and melodrama?
