The final results can be found in this thread on the forums, and all of the non-Xbox One results can be found graphically

For a long time people have said to me, “Hey Dan, what happened to your podcast, we loved it? Why don’t you start another one?” and every time I had no rebuttal. Two years later and here we are, still no podcast and a small void on the site that needs filling.

Okay, that is a rather silly title, but the point is I was trying to incorporate titles of games into the title of a post about the games, and that should give me a little nerd cred, right? Right? Hey guys, come back...
Seriously though, we have a decent variety of games lined up for November's Community Gaming Events. Payday 2 starts us off with a bang, followed by the game that gets Gackt's vote as GOTY, Defiance. Once we are done with newer... (read more)

If there’s anything we like here at X360A, it’s giveaways. Big ones at that. We’ve given away 35,700 Microsoft Points for a Trials Evolution HD competition before, 50,400 for a Dead Space 3 competition, and 65,100 for an Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood one, but this time, we wanted to go big. So big that it eclipses everything we’ve ever done before on this here site.

As inevitable as rain in England, slow motion breach scenes in Call of Duty and Lindsay Lohan going on a bender, we're proud to announce this year's pre-PAX Prime Community party.
You should know the score by now, you know, considering that this is probably the 5th time we've done this - admittedly we've lost count by now - but we're taking over one of the Taphouse's downstairs back rooms again... (read more)

Remember that one time, when we were at band camp, and the good Mr. Webb helped the folks at Codemasters come up with an achievement list for this game, and it had cars in it, and they went really fast? Well, okay, I never went to band camp, but since the site had a bit of input on the list it just seems fitting to have not just a community race week involving GRID 2, but a forum award for it as well! Starting this Monday, if you race with a staff member in GRID 2 and let them know your... (read more)
