Any advantage I can get!

By Stormblade - Posted on 07 February 2008

I am seriously thinking of purchasing this device . I have read some reviews and it seems to be the best keyboard/mouse adapter for the XBox 360 out there. Frankly, my aim sucks at the best of times and with the freaking controller, it's significantly worse.

It's a little pricey, but I need all the help I can get!

Xbox 360: Winner of the 2007 console wars?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 February 2008

Kombo has an interesting editorial up stating that the Xbox 360 won the console war in 2007.

Most Console War winners are based on number of Consoles sold, giving the win to the Nintendo Wii.

Kombo looks deeper into total revenue, attachment rate and future potential.

While it believes future potential goes to the PS3 enough of the categories are led by the Xbox 360 to give it the win in 2007.

But do they work is the question?

Pretty in ... light red? ...fuschia?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 04 February 2008

Last night's round of Burnout Paradise had Stormblade using a rather unusual colour choice.

Pretty in pink: only Stormblade can carry it off with such panache.Pretty in pink: only Stormblade can carry it off with such panache.

What can we say, pink is his colour.

Yes, I have plenty of Free Time, thank you.

Xbox Live on OSX

By Q-Bert - Posted on 03 February 2008

So, I am now running Xbox Live Friends on my Mac. It's OK. Hard to get going as it constantly gives Java errors when you initially start it. But, once it's up, it seems OK.

The Good News is that I can now see when everyone is playing. The Bad News is that unlike you hosers, I don't seem to have the time to actually play anything. So this application is proving to be just depressing to me.

Stormblade Masters the Art of the Barrel Roll

And MoriceRevek doesn't

Revek and I were working on some more difficult two-player challenges. Some of the required reasonably complex barrel rolls and power rolls. I finally got the hang of it.

Revisiting the magic of K'Nex

By Blackwalt - Posted on 02 February 2008

Using LDraw, MLcad, and an available K'Nex parts library I have drawn up a virtual version of my K'Nex Xbox 360 Controller shelf (for fun, as I wanted to see if I could do it). Yes, I used Lego software to build K'Nex. Hopefully, I don't get sued or my head doesn't just explode randomly. ...Actually, I hope that last part every day. Read more

With the Superbowl playing this weekend, this is of course the time for Superbowl commercials. While viewing some from previous years, I cam accross this gem. It actually looks like us playing any game.

Paradise Lost

By Coxxorz - Posted on 01 February 2008


It quickly became clear from Thursday night's race/stunt/crash-fest that certain members of this clan don't like Burnout Paradise for a reason... they suck at it.


By Noir - Posted on 01 February 2008

What the hell is all the hype about this damn movie. I just came back from watching it and frankly I was not too impressed. I give it a 6/10.

Shaky Cam is just some shitty gimmick and is certainly not original, since it was used in the Shit Witch project (I mean Blair Witch.). The shakiness wasn't even the worse part. It was the fact that the camera was always tilted at an angle.

The movie was short as hell too, I guess those fine art students ran out of money. This was a good thing since as I said before, it was only a 6/10. Read more

It's all a gamble when it's just a game... of Burnout Paradise

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 January 2008

    Ragz to richez or so they say
    Ya gotta-keep pushin'

    Ya treat it like a capital crime
    Everybody's doin' their time

It's on! Burnout Paradise tonight!

Guba saves the day again! She is a super hero, just ask Rolly.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 January 2008

UPDATE: It's on! See above story.

    Take me down to the paradise city
    Where the grass is green
    And the girls are pretty
    Take me home (Oh, won't you please take me home)

I know you all remember our Burnout Paradise plans for tonight.

Except, of course, that maybe...
