Not that you had noticed his absence but Coxxorz's disappearance is related to technical difficulties.
Here is his note:
Subject line: Internet broked
> Service ticket opened with Bell.
> Probably not til Tuesday.
> Dialup slow.
And yet I don't feel myself growing fonder of him...
To answer Q-Bert's chat question I have posted a page listing the features of the various Xbox 360 SKUs.
See it and comment/edit at the above link.
Since NO ONE showed for Friday night how about some gaming tonight???
Arrgggh!! We forgot to go to war!!!
I was reminded as we drove my the Coliseum today and I said to Guba, "Arrgggh!! We forgot to go to war!!!"
Now, she knows me pretty well by now but, based on her stare, I'm thinking this had her a little worried.
OXM only scores it 7.5. I had been expecting substantially better.
Not a strong rating. I think they are jaded by too many WWII games and killing Nazis again. The twist of parachuting in only happens at the start of a level (mostly).
Multiplayer has all allies parachuting in and all Axis defending from the ground all the time. They like this except who would ever want to play Axis?
I had been looking at picking this up if there was enough clan interest but with only 3 weeks until Halo 3, I think I'll wait. Read more
I need to kill things on Live.
A kitchen sink replacement and the myriad ways it could go wrong and the 6 trips to Home Depot (2 caused by their staff) have put me in a mood.
I'd rather take it out on AIs than on my family.
I can hold myself back until tonight...
Anyone got one of them lying around?
I got a wireless card from Blackwalt, but the iMac didn't come with the adapter dammit. I wonder why that was overlooked again...
That's my Live handle. I knew Stormblade was a write-off, but my backup, Stormblade99, was taken as well. So that's what I'm stuck with. I should come up with something unique like Blackwalt. At least until a Rapper takes it ...
So how do I set up that playing status thing?
Ok, I admit it.
I have NO idea what took me so long to get an XBox 360. Maybe it was anti-Microsoft sentiment, maybe it was lack of funds (more likely). I don't know.
But when I fired up Call of Duty 3 last night, I just couldn't believe my eyes. I have never seen anything or played anything like that. It was so pretty, I wanted to cry. Read more
They will appear on the left menu.
I created a generic chatroom. I don't know if it will actually stick around. I will drop into the room on occasion in the next 20 mins.
Download them now!
GRAW 2 Throwback Pack 2 just became available and is free.
GRAW 2 Throwback Pack 1 just became free with the release of Pack 2.
And, oh yeah, I am now back online...
And for our slightly slower users, these downloads are available through the Xbox Live Marketplace, not in game.
I am bored at work, so I will upgrade the Drupal engine to a development version so that we may try a Chatroom module. The site may be in "toilet seat" mode for an hour.
If you, like me, are a complete cheapskate and refuse to pay a cent more than you have to for anything, you need this software. It runs on most anything, even Q-Bert's Mac, and it allows you to manage your ebay auction items with consummate ease. It also allows for 'sniping'. Read more
So I was surprised to see EBGames selling magazines again.
In fact the were selling the Game Informer issue that I was looking for in this story.
I know you all remember me talking about Borderlands and its four player coop over live.
Since I was there, Guba had me throw something else onto the receipt.
As you know I love my wife and will do anything to please her (the fear is additional incentive).
See you online. Soon.... Read more
Because with the term 3 red lights of death floating around I was expected a simple reset to fix everything and I was expecting that MS Xbox support would be able to do it from their end. In India.
Yes, a hardware problem but no trouble your Xbox 360 is still under warranty.
"For this problem?"
No completely under warranty.
"Despite this rendition being purchased in January 2006?"
That's what it shows here.
Keep reading, still not to the important part... Read more
