HoC Accessories Order - Again (sigh)

By Stormblade - Posted on 08 September 2007

Ok, I have put off the order because, as I was compiling the list of goodies, I realized that Revek hadn't bothered to provide a size for the 'Snipered' shirt he wanted. There would be humour value in ordering an XS for him, but since I am paying, and collecting might be difficult, I decided against this. Barely.

SO, that means I will be placing the order tomorrow (Sunday) morning in order to give him time to decide on a size. After that, he'll have to order it on his own.

If any of the rest of you want something in the combined order, let me know.

Operation Help Q-Bert Get an Xbox 360

By Coxxorz - Posted on 07 September 2007

Okay, so let's put our normally divergent heads together, and come up with a way to get our beloved webmaster a next (current?) generation console, since buying one clearly isn't an option.

I'm thinking contests. Here's my contribution to the list:

• Mountain Dew/7-11: http://www.beinthegame.com/
Maximum of 3 entries per email address per day, and you get a free 48-hour Live code.

• Pepsi "Score Every Hour": http://www.gameonwithsidney.ca/
Starts Saturday, and you can enter hourly (I'll find some PIN codes)

• The Source: http://www.thesource.canadiannetstakes.com/Default.aspx
One entry per week

Left 4 Dead is a upcoming four person cooperative game from Valve on PC and Xbox 360.

The premise has four survivors trying to escape from a ravening horde of zombies. ZOMBIES!!! Can't wait.

Check out the ShackNews Hands on preview.

R6V and me

By Stormblade - Posted on 07 September 2007

I have a problem. In the quick reaction world of R6V, I can't hit the broad side of a bus.

I can sneak pretty well, I can cover pretty well (as long as it's not Blackwalt the Uncoverable). I can pinpoint my enemies pretty well. I cling to the wall, peak around the corner, line them up and ...

... miss. Consistently.

Pointing right at a guy, emptying my clip. Only to find I have missed, I need to reload, and then I'm dead.

This is not like Q-Bert's problem (one of many). I don't point at the floor. Nor do I have Revek's problem of getting mauled by rogue doors. Read more

Orders close at 8PM tonight.

HoC vs. the Terrorist Doors - the rematch

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 September 2007

I assume we are all in for a rematch?

9:30ish again?

    Bright light city gonna set my soul
    Gonna set my soul on fire
    Got a whole lot of ammo that's ready to burn,
    So get those sights up higher
    There's a thousand evil doors waitin' out there
    And they're all livin' devil may care
    And I'm just the devil with bullets to spare
    Viva las vegas, viva las vegas

Coffee in the morning. Beer, uh, right after thatCoffee in the morning. Beer, uh, right after thatOk, I can no longer properly function without some HoC accessories. Especially the beer stein. Oh, and the M for Moron shirt.

So, are we going to do a combined order or is it every cat for himself ...

Terrorist doors, 1 – HoC, 0

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 September 2007

Stormblade may have his own take on our evening of Rainbow Six coop.

But my version is slightly different.

Its a good thing that Rainbow Six Vegas only supports four players in coop because I would hate to see what more of us could do. Read more

Random Themery - HoC Style

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 September 2007

Drupal themes are all over the internet. At the drupal site and at others.

Free and pay versions (you get to pay yourself).

Find your favourite and post it for Q-Bert and I.

Q-Bert will install it and I will enable them randomly until we settle on one we like.

User feedback such as Q-Bert's "...Oh Sweeet Baby Jesus! My Eyes!!" when he saw my pick solarflare should also be posted. This makes me think that it stands out and I may make it our primary theme...

Coffin has been received and shipped

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 September 2007

It doesn't look like a coffin.It doesn't look like a coffin.So my original call to MS Xbox support was Tuesday August 28th.

I received the "coffin" for shipping my 3RLOD Xbox 360 yesterday, Tuesday September 4th. And while it seems like a week (exactly a week) it was within the 3-5 business days promised. Four in fact. Read more
