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.

There better be ZOMBIE CATS!!!

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.

By Noir - Posted on 08 January 2008

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...


Walmart is offering E3 pre-order deals. Of primary interest to Herd of Cats is Black Ops 4 available for $50. We may be against pre-ordering here at HoC but that is $30 off.


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


Good to know that someone cares
