There better be ZOMBIE CATS!!!

By Half-pint - Posted on 13 January 2008

Left 4 Dead delayed til late summer.

From ShackNews, the announcement from Valve that this much anticipated title has been delayed.

Please note that this was announced shortly after Valve bought Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock Studios.

...and mice, zombie mice!

This was so original it deserved to be promoted to the front page

I snapped the CD in half like you said, but then something strange happened. It sort of melted into a pool of shiny metalic liquid, then the 2 halfs moved towards one another and recombined. But that is not all! The pool of liquid then started to grow, and turned into a small robot! It had a tiny little gun, and started to shoot me!! At least it did not hurt, but it sure stung like hell. While it was peppering me with its tiny bullets, it moved to my pile of blank CD's. Now this is the strangest thing of all. While shooting at me, it reached out with its hand towards the pile of blank CD's. Two little tentacles shot out from its wrists, and planted themselves in the pile of CD's. You will not believe what happened next. Every one of those CD's turned into a copy of Windows Bob. Except for the topmost one, which turned into Microsoft Windows Ultimate.

Mojo Rising

    Mr. Mojo Risin', Mr. Mojo Risin'
    Mojo Risin', gotta Mojo Risin'
    Mr. Mojo Risin', gotta keep on risin'

"Yes, I'm back Baby!" And Stormblade is again trailing the pack where he belongs. Coxxorz bounced from middle of the pack to the top. And the rest of you "LOSERS" to quote Stormblade were nowhere to be found. Losers!

Hey Admin!!

I cannot see the polls or the search option after I log in. I can see them fine when I am not logged in, but as soon as I log in, they go away. Are you trying to tell me that my vote is not important? That my opinion does not matter? Should we then switch our polling section to use the Diebold (ack! now the secret service is going to show up at my door!) software? Or are we already using it?

The Unmanning of Blackwalt

By Stormblade - Posted on 11 January 2008

Last night Coxxorz and I witnessed the unmanning of Blackwalt. It was a sad moment. There he was finishing not once or twice, but three times at or near the bottom of the points list in COD4. On the last map, he finished five kills behind me!

Now, for me, this is no big deal. I suck. I admit it. On one map, I finished with ZERO kills. But hey, that's me. Read more

HOC Movie event: In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 11 January 2008

Well ladies, here is another movie that we must support, as it is based on that wonderful game, Dungeon Siege. Forgive me if I do not link to the actual game in the article, I am behind a firewall which prevents me from browsing to it.

With this stellar cast: Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, John Rhys-Davies, Ron Perlman, Claire Forlani, Burt Reynolds, how could it possibly fail? Read more

Wednesday Night Mayhem

By Blackwalt - Posted on 09 January 2008

My original title for this article was Thursday Night Mayhem but seeing as how its Wednesday...

Go figure.

Tonight starting at 9:30.

Stormblade and Coxxorz are already in.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Herd of Cats' style!

Which means no style at all of course.

Well I was talking about a single monitor solution.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 January 2008

It looks like Alienware may have a solution for me.

Of course, there is also the Panasonic solution although with Alienware I would only need a bigger desk, with Panasonic I would need a new house. A much bigger new house.

No sure what gaming system to buy next? This might help.

I think this is an awesome little chart to help people decided what gaming system they should purchase.

Coxxorz fixes Xbox Live

By Blackwalt - Posted on 07 January 2008

Let's try this one: This should fix everythingLet's try this one: This should fix everything

Coxxorz discovers the issue behind the recent Holiday Xbox Live Woes and goes under the table to fix them.

The loose cable heard around the world.

Could this be the one?

By Coxxorz - Posted on 06 January 2008

I know we're all looking forward to Burnout Paradise being the ultimate social racer for 360, but this looks promising. Fans of the MX series should feel right at home with MX vs. ATV Untamed, as it finally lands on our favourite next-gen console. Bike, quads, trucks, stunts, eight unique racing series - it's all here.

Everyone seems to like it well enough, and the video looks good, so let's hope the demo makes us want to run out and buy it. Five mini-games, supports 2-player local splitscreen, and up to 12 players online!

Downloading now...

It's not that I hate Microsoft.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 04 January 2008

Just their Xbox 360 support team. Yes, all of them.

You all know about my continuing and varied problems with MS Xbox 360 Tech Support. Just take a look at HoC node 46 , HoC node 103 (my favourite), HoC node 138 , HoC node 145 , HoC node 235 (kind of), HoC node 339 , HoC node 412 or the slightly misconstrued HoC node 224 which could have been their fault. It could have!!

You can't afford NOT to buy it

By Coxxorz - Posted on 04 January 2008

With Christmas gone and the eggnog consumed, who can honestly say they got what they really wanted? Well now you can have the present your heart actually desires, and affordably too. The Dell 2407WFP-HC is not only bigger and better than what you're using now, it's also $100 off for a limited time.

Seriously, if you can't afford $599 to bring your gaming/porning to the next level, why bother? This thing also has all the video inputs you'll need, so not having the right cable is no longer a valid excuse. Just buy it, whiners!!!

Free Game from Microsoft!

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 04 January 2008

Microsoft has announced that they will be giving out a free game to everybody on Live as a gesture of good will due to the poor network performance experienced during the holiday period.

Only in Canada, eh?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 03 January 2008

Sucks to be Stormblade.

I, however, will be PVRing this to watch after MoriceRevek's LAN party.

    Good news for Canadian Dresden fans (and Dresden fans with Canadian
    friends)! Space will broadcast the unaired 2-hour pilot, Storm Front, this
    Saturday, January 5th, at 8 pm.


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


Good to know that someone cares
