As I sit here all alone...

By Q-Bert - Posted on 28 September 2007

The whole herd is at Coxxorz playing Halo 3. Good for them; who needs them anyways. I can make my own fun.... here... all alone... with this pen... and calculator ... and dust bunnies... -sigh-

One more load of wash to do.

-sigh-

I guess I have to move some stuff downstairs for the party tomorrow....

-sigh-


Who needs them anyways....

What's the big deal?

By Stormblade - Posted on 27 September 2007

Halo 3 on white

I must be missing something.

I arrived home yesterday, after picking up my new car (yay!) to find Halo 3 waiting for me. I proceeded to tell everyone else to go away and leave me alone as I sat down to play the much anticipated game.

And I was severely disappointed. Read more

Heroes, a new season

By Q-Bert - Posted on 26 September 2007

I know that HoC is about gaming, but what the hell...

So, I viewed the season opener of Heroes on Monday, and I must say that I am looking forward to the rest of the season. As everyone remembers, the ending of the last season kinda sucked hairy balls.... But if they pull their heads out of their asses, they can use this season to explain and refurb a lot of the goofs they did in that episode.

The rest of this post has spoilers.... Read more

Who thought up using Dune Worms?!?

By Stormblade - Posted on 25 September 2007

I have been trying to finish up Overlord before Halo 3 arrives. Unfortunately, this is one freaking long and convoluted game! I spent yesterday fighting Dune worms. There is only one way to kill them and yes, it is time consuming and involved.

So, since it isn't obvious, but necessary for the story, I am issuing a spoiler alert. If you want to keep reading, scroll down. Read more

Boss... I'm sick and I need to go home...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 September 2007

**cough, cough**

What is it? Halositis something or other...

Symptoms? uhh... red blurry eyes, dry mouth, I can't seem to sleep and my thumbs are sore...

What? Yes, thumbs... and I think one of my legs is asleep...

"Get into the office you f****** lazy ass..." Sorry, boss I think my phones dying, I'm losing you....

A New Car!

By Stormblade - Posted on 24 September 2007

Yes, I finally broke down and did it. After several months of procrastination, followed by several months of pain and agony trying to get my license transfered from NJ, I have gone out and bought a car. My parents are relieved, because they can have their car back. Blackwalt is also relieved because I won't need the CR-V for anything. Read more

Could it be our Leader?

By Ice - Posted on 21 September 2007

You may have herd of Linkedin, its a social networking site for professionals. How do I know about this? Well not because Guba sent me an invite. I admit the person she did sent the invite to is much more professional then myself, but I digress.

So after being invited by a friend, I decided to join, and extend my network beyond those of mad scientest and people that read this blog. Read more

"Not a team player"

By Q-Bert - Posted on 20 September 2007

... well actually, it's the opposite...

I tried to play Supreme Commander last night. I had played a full hour last week, and it was OK; but just OK. So, I turned it off after 5 minutes last night, electing instead to watch Holmes on Homes on the Tivo. Read more

HDMI not so HD

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 September 2007

Not with Rainbow Six Vegas anyway.

So I have used HDMI on my Xbox Elite before. To watch DVDs, not play games. I used it this weekend to watch Casino Royale and was impressed by the quality of the picture. It was sweetness and light and I stared at the TV mesmerized.

The TV in question is a Viewsonic 37" LCD 1080i with a resolution of 1360x768. With HDMI in case you were wondering.

I couldn't wait until I tried gaming through HDMI. Couldn't wait.

Until I tried it that is. Read more

Microsoft Hardware Sucks – except...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 September 2007

The Xbox hardware just pisses me off sometimes.

Damn stupid Wireless headset.

Last night going in for an HoC grenade fest in Rainbow Six Vegas I finally get the headset fully charged as it ran out the previous night.

Let's turn it on. Hey, the lights are flashing and its not syncing with the 360. Dammit. Okay. Off and on. Not resyncing.

Fine push resnyc button on Headset, push resync button on 360. Ah hah. There we go. Synced.

Learning from an experienced parent

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 September 2007

Although Pebbles may deny Q-Bert's parenting experience, technically, he has been a parent longer than I.

I got to watch in awe as he taught a valuable life lesson to his four year old daughter.

Q-Bert very careful, patiently, and with great skill showed his daughter how to properly hold a shotgun. "One hand here for reloading," and the "other one here under the stock to reach the trigger." Read more

Overlord Anonymous

By Stormblade - Posted on 17 September 2007

I have developed a disease. A sickness really.

It's called Overlord, and it's all Blackwalt's fault.

You know, it started with the usual "I have this game you should see. I think you'd like it." So I watched him for a bit and it looked ok. I then downloaded the demo and it was pretty fun, so I picked up the game on eBay to give it a try.

It's a good thing I don't answer to anyone right now. Read more

Hostage Rescue in the Oasis

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 15 September 2007

My team and I have finally cleared the escalators from all of the terrorist, and are ready to rescue the hostages. Before we proceed, we resupply ourselves at the conveniently placed crate of weapons and ammo. Better change my smoke grenades to flashbangs so I can stun the terrorists.

Further down the hall, I can hear the terrorists arguing with one another.

"Put down the gun!"

"No you put down the gun!"

"I told you first!"

"Sez you!"

"Yo mama"

and so on. Read more
