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.

... 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

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

The age old debate begins again...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 October 2007

Xbox video games vs Education fund. With $165.0486850176726614176093708922016 to spend, what to do becomes a great debate.

"Daddy, Daddy, I need to be edumacated!"

"No, no, no, lots of time for that. Give me my money, I need to play Orange Box and PGR4."

National Car Rental - Redux

By Ice - Posted on 16 October 2007

OK National Car rental has annoyed me again.

What did they do this time? Well this time the agreed to reverse the credit card payment they had made on the bogus tire changing charge.
Worse yet the lady on other end of the phone was polite and seemed pleasant, I didn't even have to raise my voice.

So why does this piss me off? Well how else can I be an cutting edge blog if I don't have an antagonist. First I had the mad Monkey Breeding scientist, then I thought I had National Car. Read more

Attention eBay shoppers!

By Coxxorz - Posted on 15 October 2007

I've been a member of Great Canadian Rebates for a little while now, but just recently discovered that you can save on eBay auctions as well. In addition to special coupons and offers (e.g. free shipping) at lots of online retailers, you can also earn rebates on your purchase. The eBay offer is for 30% cash back on their revenue from the auction (i.e. listing fees, not the auction price), which can add up if you're foolish enough to buy big-ticket electronics on there.

Both Amazon and Walmart have The Division 2 pre-order available for $59 CDN - $20 off the regular price.


Please stop talking.
