Age old Pirates vs. Ninjas question to be settled with dodgeball

By Coxxorz - Posted on 19 August 2007

Finally, there's a studio brave enough to answer this burning question. Blazing Lizard Inc. aims to do so with a downloadable game on a "to-be-announced" home console system in the first quarter of 2008. In case you're still reading, there is multiplayer support for 8 players online, and 4 players co-op(!)

If you don't believe me, read for yourself.

See? I'm not the only one

Haven't you always secretly (or not so secretly) wished that "Crotch Shots" were worth extra points? Or even worthy of an achievement? I mean why should Head Shots get all the glory? Look at the size of the average terrorist head, compared to their nads. It's huge! Much harder to send Mendoza's men packing with a surgical strike to their nether regions. Not to mention far more painful.

Having Q-Bert as an employee...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 August 2007

...must suck.

"What's the hurry?"
"This is supposed to work!?!?"
"Gawddam, this is hard!"
"The clients keep interrupting."
"I'm not paid enough for this!"
"Just a few more seconds, what's the hurry?"
"Bathroom break, be back in 30 minutes."
waaaaahmbulance, I swear ....

Adding inline images.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 18 August 2007

OK, when you invoke Image Assist, and you select an image, make sure you keep "Not a URL" and then select a size to display. It will select thumbnail by default, which might not be what you wish.

All this together will permit you to display an inline image in your post/blog.

Having Blackwalt as a boss...

"Why doesn't this work?!?!"
"Gawddam, how hard could it possibly be?"
"My clients are calling!"
"I pay you too much!"
"What are you waiting for?"
"I will be in the bathroom if you need me..."

Ok, so maybe that's overly dramatic, but my XBOX 360 replacement shipped today! (insert little girl screech). I will laugh as I step over your charred remains in the near future. (here Patrick ... come out and play!)

BioShock confuses me.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 August 2007

I know, I know, not hard.

But its previews were off the charts, its demo had everyone raving. Bill f***ing Harris said "I was looking forward to this game very much until I played the demo. Now, it's gone from "very much" to "fevered."" Fevered! As Snuffy D and Coxxorz know, I usually listen to Bill F***ing Harris.

BUT... and its a pretty big BUT... it breaks the cardinal rule of Xbox 360 gaming – NO MULTIPLAYER. So what is an HoC member to do?

Not just no co-op multiplayer, but no multiplayer period. Read more

So where is the HOC merchandise?

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 16 August 2007

I see all these nice T-shirts and mugs. but nothing bearing the HOC logo?

I want a MUG!
