Coming soon to a Bomberman Live! match near you: Destructoid's faithful mascot!
No word on when we'll be getting it, but it will arrive along side many other new costumes in the next DLC pack for Bomberman Live!. So, if being a grumpy robot doesn't suit you, try the punky girl or the pretty pink fairy. And sure, for the macho there's a new executioner outfit as well. You can dress up your Bomberman doll action-figure as hardcore as you, don't you worry.
Actual character model, after the break. Check Dtoid for ludicrously large versions of all the images you see here and much, much more.
[Update]: I'm dumb and can't read. Full details after the break but know this: 10 costumes, 2 levels, 1 mode, 2 leaderboards and all coming September 26th for 250MSP.

We've just received word that this week will be another to spin by -- Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will be released at the usual time this Wednesday. I anticipate the retro-standard price point of 400 MSP. And the xbox.com page backs me up on this.
SEGA continues adding to their SEGA Vintage Collection by giving us what many consider to be the best Sonic game ever (I think I'm in this camp). Do you still have love for good ol' 2D Sonic? Or did the load times on the retail 360 Sonic game sour you completely on the spunky hedgehog (whether in 2D or 3D)?
In addition to Sonic 2, we'll also be getting some new DLC for Bomberman Live! and Band of Bugs. No details yet on what we're getting but we'll let you know when we know.
E-mail after the break.

[Update]: Added a screenshot (click for high-res) which seems to show a massive amount of smoothing graphically. (For comparison, here's an original screen at MobyGames.) Any purists out there upset by this?
Foundation 9 Entertainment has just announced that they have now released 20 games for XBLA. Not sure how they arrived at that number as I count 23, as of today. Could this bit of PR be in response to PopCap's fightin' words about being the "#1 XBLA Developer"?
Perhaps you do not recognize the name Foundation 9. Most likely that derives from the fact that the company consists of "11 proprietary development studios around the world". However you probably know of Digital Eclipse (their downloadable game brand) or Backbone Entertainment (one of their development studios). Both are integral in the XBLA strategy of Foundation 9.
Whether they have 20 games or 23 games on XBLA in immaterial. Either number brings Foundation 9's contribution to around 25% of all XBLA games. They are a driving force in the retro gaming space and have now begun branching out into new games with Bomberman Live. No doubt their support and successes will continue as XBLA grows.
The full breakdown of their XBLA portfolio after the break.
