Blackwalt, way to go!

For Snuffy D and Coxxorz. Copied and pasted from CodeMasters.
Everyone at Codemasters, especially those who worked directly with Colin McRae, is deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic events of this weekend.
The loss of Colin McRae is deeply distressing. That it involved his son and another so young makes it even more tragic. Our thoughts are with his family and those closest to him and we share in their pain. Read more
Although Pebbles may deny Q-Bert's parenting experience, technically, he has been a parent longer than I.
I got to watch in awe as he taught a valuable life lesson to his four year old daughter.
Q-Bert very careful, patiently, and with great skill showed his daughter how to properly hold a shotgun. "One hand here for reloading," and the "other one here under the stock to reach the trigger." Read more
For those of you who wonder about the differences between French and Quebecois (anyone??), Q-Bert translated this message I sent to him in French.
Je n'etais pas capable de lire l'Angais, mais quand meme, je serais la.
Avec mon XBox 360.
Translated into Quebecois:
J'chus pas capable de lire ton crisse d'anglais, mais m'a etes la quand meme, s'ti.
J'amene mon 360, pis j'vous en crisse toute une....
Obviously, I've been away too long.
I have developed a disease. A sickness really.
It's called Overlord, and it's all Blackwalt's fault.
You know, it started with the usual "I have this game you should see. I think you'd like it." So I watched him for a bit and it looked ok. I then downloaded the demo and it was pretty fun, so I picked up the game on eBay to give it a try.
It's a good thing I don't answer to anyone right now. Read more
An interesting article over at Brandweek titled Strategy: Anatomy Of An Onslaught: How Halo 3 Attacked.
It talks about the advertising campaign informing us of what we already knew: Halo 3 is coming out.
My team and I have finally cleared the escalators from all of the terrorist, and are ready to rescue the hostages. Before we proceed, we resupply ourselves at the conveniently placed crate of weapons and ammo. Better change my smoke grenades to flashbangs so I can stun the terrorists.
Further down the hall, I can hear the terrorists arguing with one another.
"Put down the gun!"
"No you put down the gun!"
"I told you first!"
and so on. Read more
- [HOC] INSERTNAMEHERE killed Teammate
And that pretty much covers our night of Rainbow Six Vegas
I'm gonna keep on the run
I'm gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last nade
If I wind up dead oh well
I'll never remember that I'm playin co-op
I'm gonna give it every grenade I've got
Lady luck please let the incendiary stay hot
Let me kill a mate with every grenade
Viva las vegas, viva las vegas,
Viva, viva las vegas
Or, How to Throw a Grenade with Friendly Fire Turned On
So last night was a gaming night that probably shouldn't have happened. It started with Blackwalt and Stormblade attempting multiplayer in Overlord.
Then, our intrepid heroes decided to switch to 'Old Faithful' - Rainbow 6 Vegas.
This may have, in hindsight, been a bad decision. The comedy of errors began with our heroes starting a game that Revek joined. Both heroes were actively deriding Revek for being unable to work his headset, providing profanity-laced advice on how to fix the problem. Read more
- [HOC] Blackwalt has committed suicide
[HOC] Moricerevek has been killed by a team mate
[HOC] Stormblade29 has been killed by a team mate
I confess. I killed them. It was me. I did it and they deserved it. All of them! Die! Die! Die! Read more
I want one yet...
Is it me or is this thing pretty much useless?
I mean its a cool looking case. It is a missile case. And its a Halo 3 themed missile case. And at $24.99 CDN it's not hugely expensive.
It is, however, small. It holds 5 games CDs, one controller, one headset. I assume you could cram more in or it could hold another controller instead of the headset (or technically, two headsets). It looks like it is designed for wireless controllers only - a wired controller would be a tight fit. Read more
As I have mentioned before, my aim in Vegas sucks. No two ways about it.
I decided to get home a little early yesterday (noon) to practice some more. I have been working my way through the single player mission quite nicely, thank you. I take cover, I aim, I kill. Everything's great.
So, 9:30 comes along and Blackwalt invites me for our nightly venture into mayhem. No problem, says I. I have been practicing. Read more
Guba has stated that she has work related research to do tonight and I will have to find something to do on my own.
Frankly, I am stumped.
No ideas at all.
If you have anything to suggest meet me on Xbox Live tonight around 9:30.
I am sure we can brainstorm and come up with a solution.
