HOC in the field

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 05 November 2007

I was reading this article and came accross a certain quote that stands out like a sore thumb on page 3. I'll let you guys find it. 10 points to the first person who does.

Half Life in 60 seconds

Nothing much happening around here is some silly entertainment.

Heroes saving dolpins?

Just what the hell is this all about?

Heroes: Crossing The Line in the Sand

By Q-Bert - Posted on 01 November 2007

Ooops, I mean Heroes: The Line.

Could they have made it even more bloody obvious ? Read more

Haven't watched Heroes yet.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 31 October 2007

So, no article about it until tomorrow morning.

My Eyes!!! My Eyes!!!

By Stormblade - Posted on 30 October 2007


Blackwalt is a good friend, but sometimes you have to take the bad with the good. Take for instance his propensity for finding obscure, really bad science fiction and fantasy series and buying me the second in the series, knowing full well that I will feel obliged to read it. He also knows I will be unable to find the other books in the series, even if I wanted them. As I have mentioned in my blog in the past, this has happened more than once. Read more

Banished to the Big Smoke ... Without my XBox 360!!

By Stormblade - Posted on 29 October 2007

Yes I am stuck in Toronto for the week. Really, what could be worse? Yes, I don't have my XBox.

So, what to do. Hmm, well I could watch the Leafs ... of course that's kind of like sticking a knife in my eye and twisting it around. Hey! that sounds like fun! Better than watching the Leafs.

I brought Thraxas with me, but I've already read it three times. Got a couple of movies ...

Sheesh, I'm bored already and I haven't even checked into the hotel!!

Note on Magazine oddities

By Blackwalt - Posted on 26 October 2007

I have two magazines that I read regularly. I subscribe to both.

OXM: the Official Xbox Magazine and PCGamer.

Just a quick comment about the impact of Halo 3 on magazine production. Read more

Marvel Ultimate Alliance: Third Dog Night

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 October 2007

Making natural hazards look good

So Stormblade(Colossus) and I (Spiderman) entered into Atlantis last night to save Namor, accompanied by AI Invisible Woman and Captain America.

It did not go well. Read more

Mysterio not so Galactic after all

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 October 2007

So Coxxorz (Deadpool) and I (Captain America) went into Marvel Ultimate Alliance once again last night and discovered that Mysterio wasn't the second coming of Galactus. We also saved the world's mutant population, a large Dam, a five storey mobile lab and discovered that M.O.D.O.K. is a sore loser at Trivial Pursuit. I think it was the two AI characters that made us so effective: Luke Cage and Human Torch. Read more

I think I'll be safe here.

By Half-pint - Posted on 24 October 2007

The pressure of running Herd of Cats is getting to me.

I think I'll hide here for a while. I don't think anyone will find me here.

I feel safe here for some reason.

Heroes: Fight or Flight

By Q-Bert - Posted on 23 October 2007

Wait! Can you hear that ??

It's the sweet absence of Sylar. Isn't that awesome ?

I am not sure I could have sat through another filler episode. So it's good news that this one actually had content. Read more

New Evil Empire - Best Buy

By Ice - Posted on 22 October 2007

Ok so maybe Evil Empire is overkill, but I am beginning to hate them more then normal. It seems like everyone has a "Must Scam Ice" concept, Best Buy being the most recent.

(facts below you can skip to the end for the rest of the rant) Read more

... It's Alive!! ...

By Stormblade - Posted on 18 October 2007

Yes, I have been out of action the last couple of weeks as my personal and professional lives have been simultaneously imploding. I am slowly regaining the urge to kill things again. Unfortunately, I have now been away from Halo 3 long enough that the modicum of competitiveness I once had is gone. I am sure I will just be cannon fodder (see Q-Bert).

Anyway, I will be back online tonight and ready to die ... er, kill.

Life imitates Xbox 360 – Rainbow Six Vegas

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 October 2007

**Update**: Sensationalism is still alive and well. Not surprising when you consider where I work. Security reports: stolen car, plain clothes cops, the police report "no gun".

In all seriousness.

SWAT has just pursued and taken down an armed gunman in our lobby and parking lot.

Complete with running screaming bystanders, a stolen car and a chase.

True to my HoC camping style. I stayed(hid) in my office until it was over...

This was way better than last year's car bomb
