Battlefield Heroes - and it's free!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 January 2008

ShackNews has a story on the new Battlefield game – Battlefield Heroes.

It will have a cartoony style similar to Teamfortress 2 and will depend on in-game ads and micro-transactions for funding.

Look for more information in the next issue of Games for Windows.

That's my boy!!!

Video Games are good

Some good video game press for a change as Wired reports that this gamer used lessons learned in America's Army Medic Training to stabilize a car crash victim until help arrived.

Halo 3 for $57.99

By Coxxorz - Posted on 18 January 2008

Oh wait– did I mention it comes with Master Chief's fucking head?!!!

I don't give a rat's ass about the extras, but I have to admit I always did want to have that shiny bastard on my shelf, smiling approvingly (I think) as Karloff and I dole out free samples of Her Majesty's Finest Brew.

So if you're looking for a second copy of the game for your spare console anyway, you can grab this hot deal at Best Buy. Simply take the $79.99 Legendary Edition box (was $149) to the cash and ask them to match Future Shop's $59.99 price. You'll get it for that and 10% of the difference. And don't forget your Reward Zone card!

So grab one and get your ass online pronto... you never know when Sean Connery will make an appearance...

Where's Q-Bert?

By Stormblade - Posted on 18 January 2008

He's not at work, we all know that. In order to be at work, one has to have a job.

It's unlikely he's trying to reproduce. He's succeeded more than once, which many of us consider a minor miracle, and Pebbles is probably swatting him away ... again. Read more

MoriceRevek, Guitar God

MoriceRevek, Guitar God

So I was playing COD4 last night, waiting for Coxxorz to finish dinner and join me (BlackWalt wasn't supposed to join because he was supposed to be spending quality time with his wife, who fell asleep on him. Figures.) when I notice MoriceRevek appear online. I think, great!. We have another HoC member to sacrifice to the COD4 wolves. So I send him an invite. Read more

Timmies' cards just aren't quite ready

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 January 2008

At Christmas I received three Timmies' gift cards. Something I was very happy about.

However, it seems that my regular drivethru stop is not totally prepared for them.

Here is a picture of my third issue with the Timmies' staff. Please note the bottom entry Request Additional tender 129.39. Yes, it was a $130 coffee. Where was I? Starbucks?

Needless to say, this erased my card completely and her simple question "How much money did you have on the card?" kind of tipped me off to the problem.

According to information compiled by the Greenberg Center at Johns Hopkins Medical Center and by the late Lee Kitchens, a past president of LPA, the frequency of occurrence of the most common types of dwarfism is as follows:

Achondroplasia (one per 26,000 to 40,000 births)
SED (one per 95,000 births)
Diastrophic dysplasia (one per 110,000 births)

WTF? Call of Duty 4 error message.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 January 2008

I was originally translating Notice UNLOCALIZED(Failed to recvfrom() socket, error WSAEMSGSIZE. ) as your clan sucks so the server booted you but Q-Bert and MoriceRevek weren't with us so I had to come up with something else.

It's now going in the Lexicon of Death as You guys were so awesome that the server had to boot you!

Yeah, I'm good with that.

Virtual Sega Night this Friday!

By Coxxorz - Posted on 16 January 2008

It's finally happened: Karloff has a new DSL modem and has committed to a night of uninterrupted online gaming bliss!

Clan members, friends, and enemies alike are invited to partake - virtually (we don't need to see your face, really) in all manner of humiliation, from Call of Duty 4 and 3, right down to Halo 3. Festivities begin "at 4:02" according to Karloff, however I would allow an additional 20 seconds for him to heed nature's call...

How on earth is HD-DVD losing to Blu-Ray?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 January 2008

Early Blu-ray adopters to get the shaft as the Blu-ray Disc Association introduces BD Profile 2.0

"They knew what they were getting into," is the official response.

Betanews has the full scoop.


Great, your heart graph is giving me a heart attack. Thanks.


Good to know that someone cares
