    Blackwalt says: tygerteam broke!!

    Blackwalt says: Tell Q-Bert to fix

    MoriceRevek says: Credit card number please

We're back.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 09 September 2007

Sorry about the short site outage. We suspect Q-Bert was angry about his new profile photo.

Steps are being taken (Q-Bert is out behind the woodshed being whipped as we speak).

It shouldn't happen again.

HoC Accessories Order Placed

By Stormblade - Posted on 09 September 2007

My credit card hates all of you.

The order is coming from the US, so there will probably be customs charges. I will work out the shipping and customs charges as a percentage of everybody's individual order.

We'll arrange pickup from Blackwalt's house once the order arrives.

Maybe we should arrange it as a gaming night, since we'll want to kill things once we get the bill.

Confirmed: No Crackdown 2 because Microsoft Sucks

By Coxxorz - Posted on 08 September 2007

The hotly anticipated sequel to our favourite Xbox 360 game of the year WILL NOT HAPPEN, according to game developer Real Time Worlds.

"Microsoft were a little late in stepping up to the plate to ask for Crackdown 2, and by then we had already started working on bigger, better things".

This, of course, does not preclude the possibility of the publishing behemoth finding another developer to carry the franchise forward. Because switching developers works so well (remember Rainbow Six Lockdown, Unreal II?) Read more

Angelina Jolie Crotch Shot

By Coxxorz - Posted on 08 September 2007

That should get Snuffy's attention.

Since we've blown away our family rating (see Q-Bert's avatar), I thought the timing right to post a revealing photo of Angelina Jolie, spread-eagled in front of the camera.

The bad news:
1) It's a virtual Angelina
2) She's fully clothed
3) It's Blackwalt in drag...

Where is Snuffy D?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 September 2007

It's true, we wouldn't make him an admin but that's because we aren't brain dead yet.

You don't give keys of an online kingdom to a luddite. It's just wrong.

However, he was the driving force to getting the website started and one of the trio of founding members.

He also coined the clan name and got us started as Herd of Cats.

All this to be proud of and he has yet to make an appearance other than this small snippet.

Typical Snuffy, tease us and leave us hanging. Read more

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 08 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:
Maximum of 3 entries per email address per day, and you get a free 48-hour Live code.

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

• The Source:
One entry per week

ShackNews has an update on Left 4 Dead

By Blackwalt - Posted on 07 September 2007

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

HoC Accessories Order

By Stormblade - Posted on 07 September 2007

Melikes the new stein!Melikes the new stein!Ok, I am planning to place the order this evening so let me know who's in. We'll arrange a pickup night at Blackwalt's place once it comes in. I have Blackwalt's and Revek's orders, so anyone else just add your requirements to a comment on this message.

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

HoC Accessories Order

By Stormblade - Posted on 06 September 2007

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 ...

... as usual. Read more

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
