Thursday Night Throwdown 04/07: Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

We revisit our favorite bird-and-bear duo's hard-to-classify Xbox 360 exclusive on this week's TNT!

I'll be honest here: after our recent, relentless string of first-person shooters on TNT, we started feeling the FPS fatigue something fierce. Stepping into the squared circle with WWE All Stars was a suitable palate-cleanser last week, and this week we keep it weird, while also choosing a game that's available outside North America, with Rare's singular Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for the Xbox 360

I bet you didn't even know that game had multiplayer, did you?

Well, it does! And it's nuts. (And bolts. Zing!) If you want to play with us, dust off your kraziest kontraptions and send us a friend request at GBTNT on the Xbox 360. If you don't have Nuts & Bolts yet, you can pick up a Giant-Bomb-endorsed Platinum Hits copy for pretty cheap, and the game is also available through Games on Demand

Either way, we'll be playing from 4PM to 6PM PDT tomorrow, April 7th, and live streaming the whole damn thing. Don't miss it! To get everyone appropriately chuffed for the event, here's a really ineffective Master Chief built in Nuts & Bolts. Enjoy!

EDIT: I almost forgot! We want to try and keep TNT fresh and fun, and your input can help make that happen! If there are some games you'd like to see featured on future TNTs, drop into this thread and let us know.
