What did you miss about video games today? What were some of the gaming industry's most popular people tweeting about? I'll give you 10 tweets I found awesome, informative, weird, funny, stupid, or whatever, and then I'll give some commentary on it.
Today, Microsoft revealed the date that they're revealing their next Xbox console. It was a reveal of a reveal. Seeing as how everyone on the internet knows about it now, it's mentioned once in today's tweets. That's all.
Twelve Different Injustice: Gods Among Us Action Figures Are On The Way – News bit.ly/11EtKBI
— Game Informer (@gameinformer) April 24, 2013
If you're a fan of action figures or DC Comics, these should be right up your alley. As the article from Game Informer states, the figures are sold in two-packs with a $29.95 price tag. And Batman, among others, aren't included in any of the packages. How the hell do you leave out Batman?
We will also be showing (for the 1st time ever) DLC character Lobo game-play footage at the C2E2 panel !!c2e213.mapyourshow.com/5_0/sessions/s…

C2E2 is the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, and I'm insanely jealous that I won't see Lobo's game-play footage live among first-time viewers at the event. Lobo will be the first of four DLC characters released. Want to know howInjustice: Gods Among Us is? Check out my review.

There we have it — a next-gen reveal from Microsoft has been confirmed. A few people in our office got this email, just not five times. It certainly is an exciting wait until we have concrete knowledge of the next Xbox. Make sure you tune in, well, basically anywhere on the internet on May 21 at 10am PT. Of course, you'll be able to get all your next-gen Xbox information at GameZone.com.

I'm a huge Disney fan. I want to be angry that someone made fun of Disney, but I can't because they're spot on and too freakin' funny. My favorite is the 101 Dalmations poster.
How am I supposed to diet when there is so much pie?
— Meggan Scavio (@megganpez) April 24, 2013
You don't, Meggan… you don't. By the way, I fully endorse pie as a dessert over cake. F*ck cake. Pie is 10 times better.

- No home
- No computer
- No internet
- The bridge they live under does get good wifi signal from Starbucks
- Kickstarter is only Zach Braff and his celeb buddies now.
@peterskerritt Just spotted a listing here for a Kinect for $60 — or $75 complete with its box.$15 for a box?!HOW COULD I NOT BUY?!
— Robert Workman (@TheDCD) April 24, 2013
Everything is better with Kinect… boxes. Honestly, $15 for a box isn't that bad. I've paid a lot more money for a box before, and it was only for an hour…
