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.

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!

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.

If you, like me, are a complete cheapskate and refuse to pay a cent more than you have to for anything, you need this software. It runs on most anything, even Q-Bert's Mac, and it allows you to manage your ebay auction items with consummate ease. It also allows for 'sniping'. Read more

Finally found the September Game Informer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 29 August 2007

So I was surprised to see EBGames selling magazines again.

In fact the were selling the Game Informer issue that I was looking for in this story.

I know you all remember me talking about Borderlands and its four player coop over live.

Since I was there, Guba had me throw something else onto the receipt.

As you know I love my wife and will do anything to please her (the fear is additional incentive).

See you online. Soon.... Read more

"It sounds like you have a hardware problem"

By Blackwalt - Posted on 28 August 2007

Oh really?

Because with the term 3 red lights of death floating around I was expected a simple reset to fix everything and I was expecting that MS Xbox support would be able to do it from their end. In India.

Yes, a hardware problem but no trouble your Xbox 360 is still under warranty.
"For this problem?"
No completely under warranty.
"Despite this rendition being purchased in January 2006?"
That's what it shows here.

Keep reading, still not to the important part... Read more

Rogers Video 2 for $30 is back

By Coxxorz - Posted on 28 August 2007

Now is the time to catch up on those XBox games you passed over at full price! Rogers Video is selling all previously played video games at 2 for $30. That's right, all.

This is awesome:

I think Microsoft should adopt their marketing strategy, and sell Xbox 360's in both a 1-year lifespan and 3-year lifespan models.

Oh, wait- I guess they already do.

I see dead people

By Blackwalt - Posted on 27 August 2007

Herd of Cat style dead people. Regiments of GRAW2 AI officers dead people. Just how many dead AI officers can you imagine?

Day one - on the run

By Ice - Posted on 27 August 2007

Prior to my escape I had been part of an experiment involving monkey bars and swinging. Apparently my IQ wasn't high enough to warn me not to participate. The results were used by the Mad Scientist to find the correct specimen.

The pain was tolerable but getting worse.... Read more
