MS Xbox Support makes me go hmmmm

By Blackwalt - Posted on 22 October 2007

Microsoft Support has added confusion and disinformation to their campaign against me.

It's working. I have no idea what they are thinking and am totally confused. I really am overestimating their competence and trust me, my estimate is low.

In our continuing correspondence (on varying subjects) they sent me a letter. Not just any letter but a support letter.

New Evil Empire - Best Buy

By Ice - Posted on 22 October 2007

Ok so maybe Evil Empire is overkill, but I am beginning to hate them more then normal. It seems like everyone has a "Must Scam Ice" concept, Best Buy being the most recent.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 22 October 2007

Q-Bert/Jehreg will be so happy. He posted a story about a Xbox 360 Keyboard/Mouse adapter.

MaxConsole.net has posted a first look at a newer version, the XCM XFPS 360 Sniper Edition which promises greater sensitivity, smoothness and ultimately precision.

League of Dysfunctional GentleCats

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 October 2007

Since so many of us have taken advantage of the $9.89 deal for Marvel Ultimate Alliance it has been suggested that we have a Superhero night.

So this morning as I threw Stormblade out of the house he suggested tonight.

So let's. First four players can join the Herd League for four-player co-op. Anyone else can form their own league.

Best Halo 3 suicide ever!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 October 2007

I didn't really understand the point, idea, or advantages of the Halo 3 video capture/theater mode until I saw this clip.

It's hilarious and the player needed the replay to figure out how he had killed himself.

Idiotic packing Gnomes...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 October 2007

I just don't get what packing Gnomes are thinking. I ordered a new keyboard and this is how it was packed for shipping.
The memory stick visible in the pictures is for scale.

Hey Coxxorz!

By Stormblade - Posted on 19 October 2007

I have your PWN3D shirt. At least I think I do. I haven't opened the package to make sure it was right.
And some of you other cheapskates owe me money ... oh yeah ... I haven't given you a bill ...

Herd of Cats joy ride

MoriceRevek – H02 manning the .50 cal
Coxxorz – H07 Warthog surfing
Blackwalt – H01(not shown) driving, somewhat erratically according to the passengers Read more

... It's Alive!! ...

By Stormblade - Posted on 18 October 2007

Yes, I have been out of action the last couple of weeks as my personal and professional lives have been simultaneously imploding. I am slowly regaining the urge to kill things again. Unfortunately, I have now been away from Halo 3 long enough that the modicum of competitiveness I once had is gone. I am sure I will just be cannon fodder (see Q-Bert).

Anyway, I will be back online tonight and ready to die ... er, kill.

Life imitates Xbox 360 – Rainbow Six Vegas

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 October 2007

**Update**: Sensationalism is still alive and well. Not surprising when you consider where I work. Security reports: stolen car, plain clothes cops, the police report "no gun".

In all seriousness.

SWAT has just pursued and taken down an armed gunman in our lobby and parking lot.

Complete with running screaming bystanders, a stolen car and a chase.

True to my HoC camping style. I stayed(hid) in my office until it was over...

This was way better than last year's car bomb

Blackwalt 4, Cozzorz 3

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 October 2007


Red vs. Blue, the Herd of Cats way – by accident.

Last night with a two man Halo 3 party of Coxxorz and myself we got separated by the automatic matchmaking. We didn't realize it immediately but entered into the 8 vs 8 Team Slayer on opposite teams. Coxxorz Blue, Blackwalt Red. Read more
