Ask X3F: Microsoft Game Shenanigans edition


Ask X3F returns yet again with wild speculation, quick and dirty research, and almost no real information. Just kidding! We're very professional and stuff. This week, we show it off by discussing the benefits of wired controls, anti aliasing, and discussing the current state of Microsoft Game Studios. Find all of this and more -- stuffed to bursting with professionalism -- after the break.

Ask X3F: puzzling hits edition


Another edition of Ask X3F is upon us, boys and girls. In this weeks installment, we discuss many puzzling issues including what happened to Microsoft Point gifting, why X3F giveaways are only open in North America and just what the deal is with Rock Band 1 DLC compatibility. We also ask a very important question: what exactly makes a hit? The Arcade Hits program has been discounting Xbox Live Arcade games for a while now, but we really don't know what makes a 'hit.' Why are some games discounted while others are not. We explore the possibilities after the break.

The mailbag is getting a bit thin this week, so be sure to send in your questions and comments for next week.

Ask X3F: The solitude of space edition


This week on Ask X3F, we discuss important issues like analog stick ... um ... stickiness, Canadian pricing, dead batteries and that all important topic: how do you convince your significant other that he or she needs an Xbox 360? Yes, we take a look at all this an more in the latest installment. Find them after the break. If you've got questions of your own, don't forget to send 'em our way.

Ask X3F: That Virtua Feeling edition


This week on Ask X3F, the community-powered feature where we answer reader questions, we have a lot to cover. We've got Star Trek Online questions, we've got New Xbox Experience questions, we even have questions that aren't really questions at all. We also share a few choice words on exactly why it is that Microsoft can cram a 120GB hard drive into a Zune but decided not to build one into every Xbox 360. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we answer a question we haven't heard since the 90's: Virtua Fighter or Soul Calibur?

Ask X3F: Friendship edition


This week on a newly rejuvenated Ask X3F, we tackle wireless internet stealing sharing, erratic Xbox 360 sign-in problems and the ability of the Xbox 360 Fancast to turn people into (extremely) minor internet celebrities. We also discuss the practice of borrowing games from friends. It's a tricky road to travel. Personally, we've seen some of our best games lost to the abyss thanks to untrustworthy friends (thanks for losing Earthworm Jim, Joey!). However, it can also be a great (and cheap) way to experience games you wouldn't otherwise. Delve dee into this week's edition of Ask X3F and uncover its secrets. No, seriously. Delve.

Ask X3F: Backwards Incompatibility


It's a short Ask X3F this week. Why? Because we have next to zero questions to answer. Sometimes, that's just how it happens. As such, it won't take you very long to read it this week. We know, it makes us sad too. But look at it this way, with the time you save on reading Ask X3F, you can get other things done. Important things ... like chores! Or, failing that, you could always play some video games. We understand that's a pretty popular activity these days.

Fun fact: this is the second time we've featured Chronicles of Riddick as the headline image for Ask X3F. See if you can find the other one. It will be fun, we promise!

Ask X3F: Starving for swag edition


Okay, deep breath. Ask X3F is back the way it was always meant to be. Oh sure, Xav came and filled in for a week, but now it's time to get back to business for real and for true. This week we have got a brand new heap of questions. It seems quite a few folks are curious about the new 60GB Xbox 360. Another reader wants to know what happened to all of our swag (hint: E3). Finally, we deal with the controversial topics of IPTV and inversion. Read on.

Ask X3F ... Xav is not Richard edition


With Richard on vacation a few things were left hanging in the air. What will come of the Fancast this week? Well, it was put on hold so we all could rest. Who will force us to work? Well, we're all drinking lots of coffee to stay awake. What will happen to Ask X3F? Well, about that ...

Loyal readers will know that the last time one of us tried to do an Ask X3F segment the response wasn't exactly positive. But we decided that answering your growing list of emails was more important than anything else so we decided to go ahead (with Richard's approval of course) and take over this week. We assure you Richard will be back to answer all your Xbox-related concerns soon but in the mean time it's Xav's turn to get hated on for doing Richard's weekly feature. This week we cover everything from lost cables to niche games (like Oneechanbara in the image above) not making it Stateside. Read it, learn it, love it. Also, keep all possible flaming creative for bonus points.

Ask X3F: Press Start edition


We hope you like this edition of Ask X3F, because you ain't getting one next week. We're going to be at E3, you see, and we imagine most of your questions will be answered by our non-stop, super awesome coverage of the event. Anyhway, to the questions! This week, we've got questions (and answers) about XBLA release dates, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith guitar compatibility, and achievement tracking. As an added bonus, depending on your point of view, we don't have one question about Halo 3 toys this week. We know, it feels weird to us too. Read on, knowledge seekers!

Ask X3F: Revolution edition


This is it. This is the 26th episode of Ask X3F. We've been doing this for half a year now. In fact, we missed a week at least once, so we've been doing it even longer. It seems like only yesterday when we were answering questions on Christmas morning. Ah, memories. But enough of this sentimental codswallop! It's time to answer some questions. This week we answer queries about Xbox 360 memory units, the DRM tool and box art. Oh, and we should mention this is also the first edition of Ask X3F to include not one, but two haiku poems. Don't bother yourself with silly questions about how (or why) there are haikus in a question and answer column. Just read the column and enjoy it.

Ask X3F: Solid rumors edition


The video game industry certainly sees its share of rumors and, in this week's edition of Ask X3F, we tackle one of the biggest. That is, of course, whether or not Metal Gear Solid 4 will ever hit our beloved white console. We also discuss Street Fighter II HD, Halo toys and Spore. Find a bounty of delicious text after the break.

Ask X3F: DRM Doldrums Edition


After a one week hiatus, Ask X3F returns once again. Where was it last week? Frankly, there just weren't enough questions (or too many questions we aren't equipped to answer). Even this week's batch of questions is fairly small. Still, we must press on, and so we have. After the break, find answers to questions about Xbox 360 controller problems, the upcoming DRM fix and more. Now, start sending more questions!

Ask X3F: Indy's alive edition [update]


Welcome once again to Ask X3F, the community-powered feature where we answer the burningest questions around. This week, we talk Guitar Hero: Aerosmith and Guitar Hero III DLC, DiRT 2, and storage media. Oh, and we also discuss the Indiana Jones game that was announced way back in 2006. It's dropped of the radar since then. What happened to it? Was it canceled? Find out inside.

Ask X3F: Riddick-ulous edition


With so many editions of Ask X3F come and gone, one would think that we would have answered them all by now. But no, man is a curious creature, a creature whose thirst for knowledge will not be slaked. Also, it turns out, people just love asking questions about unreleased games. The most recent game-du-semaine is none other than The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena. Announced just over a year ago, it missed its projected 2007 release and sank into obscurity. What happened to it? Find our best theory (and feel free to submit your own) after the break Oh, and we answer other questions too.

Ask X3F: Guitar queries edition


It's alright everyone, Ask X3F is here. We know you've been waiting, slavering at the chance to sink your eyeballs into another action-packed edition of our column devoted to both Q's and their A's. Rest assured, we are happy to oblige in every possible way. This week, we boldly explore the Xbox 360's lack of mutli-person private chat, overscan problems, and the absence of Bionic Commando: Rearmed. We also do our best to start the Guitar Hero IV versus Rock Band 2 flamewar months and months (possibly even years) in advance. Find out if we're successful after the break.
