Media remote controls in-game custom music (Xbox 360 delight #011)

We'd overlooked this handy little maneuver until just last night. For those of you that like to stream custom music into your games, you can use the media remote to pause, stop, or cycle through the playlist, avoiding the Xbox 360 guide altogether. It's a handy trick if you want to quickly pause the...

Gamer Points -- we're addicted (Xbox 360 delight #010)

It occurred to me, late last night, that I wasn't playing Need For Speed: Most Wanted to have fun. No, I was recklessly building my bounty score in order to challenge and defeat Kira "Kaze" Nakazato (#7 spot on the Blacklist 15), so I could net another 25 gamer points. With the introduction of gamer...

Online co-op (Xbox 360 delight #009)

We know you were bummed when Bungie was unable to include online co-op in Halo 2. We were. As simple as it sounds, including two-, three-, or even four-player gameplay can add an immeasurable fun factor to an otherwise solitary practice. Online PvP modes are one thing, but the ability to work your w...

The demo (Xbox 360 delight #008)

We knew that the ability to download playable demos via the Xbox Live Marketplace was a key feature of the Xbox 360, but we never imaged that one not-so-tiny-download could pack this kinda punch. Enter: Fight Night Round 3 demo, two controllers, and a room full of old pals with never ending scores t...

Do-it-yourself repair (Xbox 360 delight #007)

Since my dysfunctional Xbox 360 was scheduled to ship for repair early this week, I figured some light investigation beforehand couldn't make matters worse. I had no intentions of cracking the console open, but I did want to surf around the Dashboard for any solutions I-or Xbox Support-might have ov...

Getting the girlfriend to join in (Xbox 360 Delight #006)

Last night the Xbox 360 finally managed to get the girlfriend to crack a smile. No big deal, right? Wrong. The longstanding feud between the little lady and the Box began last generation, spurred by my ill choice of words: Girlfriend: "You gonna bring your game with you to your parents' house this ...

It's great at parties (Xbox 360 delight #005)

Having a crowd of non-gamers over for a party is always hard work. Do you try to convince them of the myriad temptations of World of Warcraft? Thrust a PSP or DS into their clammy, alcohol-filled hands? Load up Halo 2 and watch as they try to get to grips with look inversion? Or do you give up on w...

Oh my god, it is so big! (Xbox 360 delight #004)

Size does matter. Computer screens are swell and all, but they're tiny. We sit close to computers because we have to. Ever since purchasing an HD projector (and managing to stay married after my sugar mommy saw the credit card bill!) I've had a number of guests over at Joystiq's outpost in the city ...

Philadelphia goes to war with Tokyo (Xbox 360 delight #003)

In the midst of all of this doom and gloom about Xbox 360 in Japan, there are some positive developments. You know what's cool? I'm in Philadelphia. My buddy CheapyD of CheapAssGamer.com is in Tokyo, but today I played Perfect Dark Zero with him schooled him in Perfect Dark Zero. It's not that I hav...

Microsoft points are oh-so-dangerous (Xbox 360 delight #002)

Like Xbox Live Arcade, the Xbox Live Marketplace is another underappreciated aspect of the Xbox 360 experience. Using a form of currency dubbed "Microsoft Points," gamers can buy Arcade games, gamer icons, console themes and other digital bric-a-brac to customize their gaming experience. Microsoft P...
