Nothing special happened

Yet I can't help but think the historians missed something.

Two Things:

  1. I will have you know I had this graphic done in advance. But only because yesterday counts.
  2. We owe you a co-op day.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 April 2017

...and it's really boring.

For now anyway. Hopefully things will pickup once the full length trailer comes out tomorrow.


Here is the Official Link to the Official Battlefront II Site. Which may not have been posted at the same time as this story.

Amazon shipping fail

By Blackwalt - Posted on 28 March 2017

Fortunately this order wasn't for me...

...and it was only two weeks late.

Too be fair this is most likely Canada Post's fault.

However, my original purchase of this order was February 11th. The product was released March 7th. It shipped March 23rd (two weeks after). It arrived on the 28th.

This is today by the way...

Tales from the Dysclexic Peot

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 08 March 2017

The setting. Bedtime stories with step-daughter. The book. Disney's Never Girls.

The original text:

"Maybe I'll just pop into the kitchen and make some scones."

What came out:

"Maybe I'll just poop into the kitchen and make some scones."

She was holding a poop emoji stuffy in her arms as I said it. Much laughter at my expense ensued.

Oscar Morales

By Akuf - Posted on 14 February 2017

I received a message from my buddy Betty Nukem this morning that I look like Oscar Morales from the Jurassic park game.
Yeah it is uncanny :p


Titanfall 2 is on sale pretty much everywhere for $19.99. Reviewed well and is supposed to have a good single player campaign.


A Q-Bert Roast is waaaay too easy. We do that every time we see him..
