Okay, so let's put our normally divergent heads together, and come up with a way to get our beloved webmaster a next (current?) generation console, since buying one clearly isn't an option.
I'm thinking contests. Here's my contribution to the list:
• Mountain Dew/7-11: http://www.beinthegame.com/
Maximum of 3 entries per email address per day, and you get a free 48-hour Live code.
• Pepsi "Score Every Hour": http://www.gameonwithsidney.ca/
Starts Saturday, and you can enter hourly (I'll find some PIN codes)
• The Source: http://www.thesource.canadiannetstakes.com/Default.aspx
One entry per week
Left 4 Dead is a upcoming four person cooperative game from Valve on PC and Xbox 360.
The premise has four survivors trying to escape from a ravening horde of zombies. ZOMBIES!!! Can't wait.
Check out the ShackNews Hands on preview.
I have a problem. In the quick reaction world of R6V, I can't hit the broad side of a bus.
I can sneak pretty well, I can cover pretty well (as long as it's not Blackwalt the Uncoverable). I can pinpoint my enemies pretty well. I cling to the wall, peak around the corner, line them up and ...
... miss. Consistently.
Pointing right at a guy, emptying my clip. Only to find I have missed, I need to reload, and then I'm dead.
This is not like Q-Bert's problem (one of many). I don't point at the floor. Nor do I have Revek's problem of getting mauled by rogue doors. Read more
Ok, I am planning to place the order this evening so let me know who's in. We'll arrange a pickup night at Blackwalt's place once it comes in. I have Blackwalt's and Revek's orders, so anyone else just add your requirements to a comment on this message.
Orders close at 8PM tonight.
I assume we are all in for a rematch?
Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of ammo that's ready to burn,
So get those sights up higher
There's a thousand evil doors waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with bullets to spare
Viva las vegas, viva las vegas
Ok, I can no longer properly function without some HoC accessories. Especially the beer stein. Oh, and the M for Moron shirt.
So, are we going to do a combined order or is it every cat for himself ...
... as usual. Read more
Stormblade may have his own take on our evening of Rainbow Six coop.
But my version is slightly different.
Its a good thing that Rainbow Six Vegas only supports four players in coop because I would hate to see what more of us could do. Read more
1. a number of persons forming one of the sides in a game or contest: a football team.
2. a number of persons associated in some joint action: a team of advisers.
3. two or more horses, oxen, or other animals harnessed together to draw a vehicle, plow, or the like.
4. one or more draft animals together with the harness and vehicle drawn.
5. a family of young animals, esp. ducks or pigs (or cats). Read more
The Rainbow Six version of Vegas of course.
And Herd of Cats style. Except that it would be good if someone actually showed up...
Drupal themes are all over the internet. At the drupal site and at others.
Free and pay versions (you get to pay yourself).
Find your favourite and post it for Q-Bert and I.
Q-Bert will install it and I will enable them randomly until we settle on one we like.
User feedback such as Q-Bert's "...Oh Sweeet Baby Jesus! My Eyes!!" when he saw my pick solarflare should also be posted. This makes me think that it stands out and I may make it our primary theme...
So my original call to MS Xbox support was Tuesday August 28th.
I received the "coffin" for shipping my 3RLOD Xbox 360 yesterday, Tuesday September 4th. And while it seems like a week (exactly a week) it was within the 3-5 business days promised. Four in fact. Read more
Too tired to be creative...
In Calgary.. There must have been some stories I can tell from the Rockies. But I'll do that later
UPDATE: Switched to Rainbow Six Vegas!
Viva Las Vegas Pinata!
See the little NHL Logo just above the v-neck? Radical change!! Heretics!!
So after breaking free of the Mad Scientists it appeared that I need to get as far away from the scene as I could. With sketchy plans I head out. Read more
