Analyst: Nintendo 'Could Rival Apple' As Stocks Surge

By Swag - Posted on 03 October 2007

This site is way too Xbox biased, so I decided to post this article about Nintendo. Of course, bashing Xbox and Apple at the same time will probably get me in a lot of trouble here (although if you read the article, Apple is actually complimented).

From the article: "'We believe Nintendo's talent in creating new markets, evident from the launch of the DS and Wii, could bring it close to the level of Apple, whose high valuations are due in large part to its innovative business model.'” Read more

Pink vs. Blue – Xbox 360 controllers

By Blackwalt - Posted on 02 October 2007

Why does this seem wrong?

Microsoft has announced the release of new Pink and Blue wireless Xbox 360 controllers.

I guess this is so that gamers can properly accessorize their controllers with their wardrobe. I guess that the Pink controller will help Q-Bert.

Microsoft also points out that the Instruction Manual for the Xbox 360 controller is available online. I would suspect that a quick perusal of the controller manual might be of some use in improving the Halo 3 skills of some of our herd members. You know who you are.

The calendar.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 01 October 2007

So, Coxxorz asked me to put up a calendar where we could show when we were available for gaming. Took me a few weeks, but it got done.

I'm not saying that I had to spend 20 hours of my time to get it done, but it wasn't 2 minutes either.

I would certainly appreciate it if I wasn't the only one to actually use it to show my availability...

It would be espcially lovely if the person who actually asked for it would use it.

Not that I'm bitching, mind you...

My XFest Musings

By Stormblade - Posted on 01 October 2007

or How I ate TWO Halo Burgers and Lived!!

General Musings:

  • I knew in advance that I was not the world's best FPS player, but HardWOOD and his gang made me (and others) feel like pathetic newbies. It wouldn't have been so bad if I could have used Blackwalt's excuse of having a life away from the XBox, but I don't.

    Xbox from the US

    By Ice - Posted on 30 September 2007

    Work takes me to the land of the even dollar this week. I'll be spending 5 days in the US. At the same time I'm considering purchasing an XBOX. It looks like the prices maybe up to $50 cheaper then in Canada, which would leave the Halo Edition at around $399.

    Does anyone know if there are any concern with Warrenties if I purchase one from the US and tried to have it fixed in Canada. (We know Xbox's never need warrenty work). Read more

    By Noir - Posted on 30 September 2007

    Eric is an old man now. Did he atleast have a sweet gaming session in order to celebrate the occation?

    By Q-Bert - Posted on 28 September 2007

    I have lived this...

    By Blackwalt - Posted on 27 September 2007

    In our real life the role of Cliff is played by Blackwalt and the role of Greg is played by Stormblade.

    With this exact author as a matter of fact...

    From Real Life Comics.

    This is the one instance that I didn't give him book 3 of an impossible to find, low print run, really bad SciFi series.

    What's the big deal?

    By Stormblade - Posted on 27 September 2007

    Halo 3 on white

    I must be missing something.

    I arrived home yesterday, after picking up my new car (yay!) to find Halo 3 waiting for me. I proceeded to tell everyone else to go away and leave me alone as I sat down to play the much anticipated game.

    And I was severely disappointed. Read more

    Halo 3 and HoC standards - such as they are...

    By Blackwalt - Posted on 26 September 2007

    Don't know if we want to bother but it's probably not a bad idea to settle on a standard emblem and service tags.

    Here's how to make what we are using so far.

    There is a Tomcat icon near the bottom of the selection list. Select this and colour it orange (Emblem primary - 3 down, 2 across).

    Pick the cowboy hat from the backgrounds and colour it a red (Emblem background - 2 down, 1 across). Will correct this once I am in the game again.

    Use the X button to Toggle Icon and get rid of the stupid bow tie, and you are good to go (this means emblem secondary colour doesn't matter. Read more


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


    Please stop talking.
