I've been away too long

By Stormblade - Posted on 17 September 2007

For those of you who wonder about the differences between French and Quebecois (anyone??), Q-Bert translated this message I sent to him in French.

Je n'etais pas capable de lire l'Angais, mais quand meme, je serais la.

Avec mon XBox 360.

Translated into Quebecois:

J'chus pas capable de lire ton crisse d'anglais, mais m'a etes la quand meme, s'ti.

J'amene mon 360, pis j'vous en crisse toute une....

Obviously, I've been away too long.

Overlord Anonymous

By Stormblade - Posted on 17 September 2007

I have developed a disease. A sickness really.

It's called Overlord, and it's all Blackwalt's fault.

You know, it started with the usual "I have this game you should see. I think you'd like it." So I watched him for a bit and it looked ok. I then downloaded the demo and it was pretty fun, so I picked up the game on eBay to give it a try.

It's a good thing I don't answer to anyone right now. Read more

How Halo 3 Attacked

By Blackwalt - Posted on 16 September 2007

An interesting article over at Brandweek titled Strategy: Anatomy Of An Onslaught: How Halo 3 Attacked.

It talks about the advertising campaign informing us of what we already knew: Halo 3 is coming out.

Hostage Rescue in the Oasis

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 15 September 2007

My team and I have finally cleared the escalators from all of the terrorist, and are ready to rescue the hostages. Before we proceed, we resupply ourselves at the conveniently placed crate of weapons and ammo. Better change my smoke grenades to flashbangs so I can stun the terrorists.

Further down the hall, I can hear the terrorists arguing with one another.

"Put down the gun!"

"No you put down the gun!"

"I told you first!"

"Sez you!"

"Yo mama"

and so on. Read more

How did we miss this Hot racing game?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 15 September 2007

I know Coxxorz is buying this for sure.

This has been buried because it is releasing the same day as Halo 3.

But still, we should have seen it.

Unfortunately, "with up to two players," is a direct quote.

Friendly Fire is ON!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 15 September 2007

[HOC] INSERTNAMEHERE killed Teammate

And that pretty much covers our night of Rainbow Six Vegas

I'm gonna keep on the run
I'm gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last nade
If I wind up dead oh well
I'll never remember that I'm playin co-op
I'm gonna give it every grenade I've got
Lady luck please let the incendiary stay hot
Let me kill a mate with every grenade
Viva las vegas, viva las vegas,
Viva, viva las vegas

PGR4 has gone gold...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 September 2007

I saw this at TeamXbox.

Bizarre Creations has posted a news release announcing that Project Gotham Racing 4 Has Gone Gold. Complete with a list of all included cars.

Blackwalt: 3, HOC: 0

Or, How to Throw a Grenade with Friendly Fire Turned On

So last night was a gaming night that probably shouldn't have happened. It started with Blackwalt and Stormblade attempting multiplayer in Overlord.


Then, our intrepid heroes decided to switch to 'Old Faithful' - Rainbow 6 Vegas.

This may have, in hindsight, been a bad decision. The comedy of errors began with our heroes starting a game that Revek joined. Both heroes were actively deriding Revek for being unable to work his headset, providing profanity-laced advice on how to fix the problem. Read more

Bio of a Team Killer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 September 2007


[HOC] Blackwalt has committed suicide
[HOC] Moricerevek has been killed by a team mate
[HOC] Stormblade29 has been killed by a team mate

I confess. I killed them. It was me. I did it and they deserved it. All of them! Die! Die! Die! Read more

Halo 3 Missile Case Organizer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 13 September 2007

I want one yet...

Is it me or is this thing pretty much useless?

I mean its a cool looking case. It is a missile case. And its a Halo 3 themed missile case. And at $24.99 CDN it's not hugely expensive.

It is, however, small. It holds 5 games CDs, one controller, one headset. I assume you could cram more in or it could hold another controller instead of the headset (or technically, two headsets). It looks like it is designed for wireless controllers only - a wired controller would be a tight fit. Read more

R6V and me - Part II

By Stormblade - Posted on 13 September 2007

R6V Shotup

As I have mentioned before, my aim in Vegas sucks. No two ways about it.

I decided to get home a little early yesterday (noon) to practice some more. I have been working my way through the single player mission quite nicely, thank you. I take cover, I aim, I kill. Everything's great.

So, 9:30 comes along and Blackwalt invites me for our nightly venture into mayhem. No problem, says I. I have been practicing. Read more

Need help finding something to do tonight

By Blackwalt - Posted on 12 September 2007

Guba has stated that she has work related research to do tonight and I will have to find something to do on my own.

Frankly, I am stumped.

No ideas at all.

If you have anything to suggest meet me on Xbox Live tonight around 9:30.

I am sure we can brainstorm and come up with a solution.

New gaming accessory!

By Coxxorz - Posted on 11 September 2007

Spotted this little puppy at Rogers on my way home tonight. In case you don't reconize it, it's an Xbox 360 Messenger kit. Basically a keyboard that clips onto your controller to allow easy texting. It's so new, it doesn't even have a price sticker yet ($34.99, btw). Looks pretty solid, and despite no lack of keyboards at my place, will definitely be added to my wish list. Seems to be getting favourable reviews, too. Too bad for Blackwalt it doesn't come in black.

Translation – by popular demand

By Blackwalt - Posted on 11 September 2007

Anyone else get their Halo 3 preorder yet?

By Coxxorz - Posted on 10 September 2007

Got the call at home from Blockbuster this evening. Ran out the door as fast as I could. Drove to the mall like a maniac. Hit 3 pedestrians and a baby carriage on the way. Arrived there to find the store full of people laughing and pointing at me. I looked down and realized I was dressed only in my underwear. Then I suddenly woke up from my nap in a cold sweat...


OMG! The price for Assassin's Creed Unity has now jumped to $4.99 CAD on Cdkeys.


If you are interested in the newly released Middle-Earth: Shadow of War but don't want to jump in at $79.99 You can see where it all started with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (Standard Disc Version) for $11.99 at the Microsoft Store.
Now you too can follow the yellow brick road to platform 9¾ while trying to roll a critical hit.


I wish someone looked at me the way you look at your rocket launcher.
