Still Running Day 2 - 6

By Ice - Posted on 01 September 2007

So after breaking free of the Mad Scientists it appeared that I need to get as far away from the scene as I could. With sketchy plans I head out. Read more

Coxxorz's absence

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 September 2007

Not that you had noticed his absence but Coxxorz's disappearance is related to technical difficulties.

Here is his note:

Subject line: Internet broked

> Service ticket opened with Bell.
> Probably not til Tuesday.
> Dialup slow.

And yet I don't feel myself growing fonder of him...

Xbox 360 models - synopsis

Xbox 360 models

To answer Q-Bert's chat question I have posted a page listing the features of the various Xbox 360 SKUs.

See it and comment/edit at the above link.

Fine you llamas, forget Friday, how about Saturday night's alright for fighting?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 September 2007

Since NO ONE showed for Friday night how about some gaming tonight???

What if you held a war and nobody showed up?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 August 2007

Arrgggh!! We forgot to go to war!!!

I was reminded as we drove my the Coliseum today and I said to Guba, "Arrgggh!! We forgot to go to war!!!"

Now, she knows me pretty well by now but, based on her stare, I'm thinking this had her a little worried.

Note about Medal of Honor Airborne

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 August 2007

OXM only scores it 7.5. I had been expecting substantially better.

Not a strong rating. I think they are jaded by too many WWII games and killing Nazis again. The twist of parachuting in only happens at the start of a level (mostly).

Multiplayer has all allies parachuting in and all Axis defending from the ground all the time. They like this except who would ever want to play Axis?

I had been looking at picking this up if there was enough clan interest but with only 3 weeks until Halo 3, I think I'll wait. Read more

Friday night KillFest -- please??

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 August 2007

I need to kill things on Live.

A kitchen sink replacement and the myriad ways it could go wrong and the 6 trips to Home Depot (2 caused by their staff) have put me in a mood.

I'd rather take it out on AIs than on my family.

I can hold myself back until tonight...

Looking for Imac G3 wireless adapter.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 30 August 2007

Anyone got one of them lying around?

I got a wireless card from Blackwalt, but the iMac didn't come with the adapter dammit. I wonder why that was overlooked again...


By Stormblade - Posted on 30 August 2007

That's my Live handle. I knew Stormblade was a write-off, but my backup, Stormblade99, was taken as well. So that's what I'm stuck with. I should come up with something unique like Blackwalt. At least until a Rapper takes it ...

So how do I set up that playing status thing?

Over the wall and into Hell

By Stormblade - Posted on 30 August 2007

Ok, I admit it.

I have NO idea what took me so long to get an XBox 360. Maybe it was anti-Microsoft sentiment, maybe it was lack of funds (more likely). I don't know.

But when I fired up Call of Duty 3 last night, I just couldn't believe my eyes. I have never seen anything or played anything like that. It was so pretty, I wanted to cry. Read more

Guess what... You asked for it, here it is. Chats online.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 29 August 2007

They will appear on the left menu.
I created a generic chatroom. I don't know if it will actually stick around. I will drop into the room on occasion in the next 20 mins.

GRAW 2 Throwback Pack 1 just became free with the release of Pack 2.

And, oh yeah, I am now back online...

And for our slightly slower users, these downloads are available through the Xbox Live Marketplace, not in game.

Warning! Update imminent!

By Q-Bert - Posted on 29 August 2007

I am bored at work, so I will upgrade the Drupal engine to a development version so that we may try a Chatroom module. The site may be in "toilet seat" mode for an hour.


The Strange Brigade - Gentleman Explorer Character Pack is available FREE for a limited time.


Please stop talking.
