"Let's make sure this time" LAN party a complete success.

Storm, Q-Bert and Coxxorz enjoy the Arthouse film that is DOA: Dead or AliveStorm, Q-Bert and Coxxorz enjoy the Arthouse film that is DOA: Dead or AliveAnd frankly not being able to play with Karloff was a good thing. Of course, he is ignoring the successful hour of play before we broke for supper.

We stuck with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for the entire evening and enjoyed watching Stormblade improve and Q-Bert get worse over the entire evening. Read more

Attention Points Whores

By Coxxorz - Posted on 29 November 2007

At Shoppers Drug Mart on Saturday December 1, spend $50 and you will receive 20x the Shoppers Optimum Points if you sign up for the event here.

If that doesn't grab you, how about these little babies? Need to renew your Xbox Live subscription soon? Why not buy a gold card at Shoppers and earn Optimum points on it! Going to play the new Halo 3 maps that are coming in December? You'll need points for that, and Shoppers sells those now too. Not sure if you'll get 20x points on those (phone and gift cards don't work), but you'll at least get the regular Optimum points if you buy it along with something else.

Sweet merciful Crap

By Coxxorz - Posted on 28 November 2007

This week on Bargain Corner, we have the ultimate in gaming audio goodness: the Logitech Z-5500 speaker system. Some of you may be familiar with Snuffy D's and even my own heart-stopping Z-560 THX-rated computer speaker systems. This is that system's big brother.

This bad boy ups the ante from 400 watts to a ridiculous (for a computer speaker) 500 watts nominal power output. The subwoofer gets an upgrade from 8" to a massive 10". Speakers also increase, this time in number: the z5500 is a true 5.1 speaker system, meaning it has a proper center channel. Add a nice optical toslink input, fancy LCD control pod and a wireless remote, and you've got the makings of something beautiful in your private gaming dugout.

But the best part is the price. While most stores sell these for $500, Dell has the Z-5500 on sale until the end of the month for just Read more

There's a Best Buy in Kanata?

Strange that Snuffy didn't notify us of the Grand Opening on Friday... Trying to keep all the door crasher specials to himself?

While I'm all for another gadget store in the area (more price-matching opportunities, dealing with pimple-faced mouth-breathers), the thing that caught my eye was the guests of honour: Read more

Let's make sure this time...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 November 2007

With Stormblade's impending departure to Denver for six months, his second death should be celebrated. Let's make sure this time (you know what I mean) and send him off in a true Herd of Cat's way.

Yes. A Xbox 360 LAN party which hardly anyone will attend. Well, some of will attend. Just to make sure... Read more

Walked into the site today...

And got blasted by all the banner adds.

All in favor of revoking admin rights to whomever resposible?

I thought I read not long ago that hackers now have a way to take control of your system just by having their banner add show up in your browser. You don't even need to click on the add.

Hot Deals

By Coxxorz - Posted on 20 November 2007

Sorry for the late notice, but it has come to my attention that there are actually some good deals to be had in today's "Dell 5 Days of Gaming Deals."

Unlike previous sales where you could find hot deals on such items as "mousepad" and "sewing machine", right now you can buy a copy of The Orange Box or Call of Duty 4 for Xbox 360 for just $44.99, with FREE SHIPPING.

Yes, I am actually considering buying Half-Life Epside Two and Team Fortress and Portal. Luckily the sale price will probably expire in just a few hours...

Revek wanted me to post this YouTube sequence:


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
