X-Fest 3 - a good time had by all

By Coxxorz - Posted on 30 September 2007

Well, another awesome Halo LAN party is in the books, and I think it's safe to say this was the best one yet. Read more

Xbox from the US

By Ice - Posted on 30 September 2007

Work takes me to the land of the even dollar this week. I'll be spending 5 days in the US. At the same time I'm considering purchasing an XBOX. It looks like the prices maybe up to $50 cheaper then in Canada, which would leave the Halo Edition at around $399.

Does anyone know if there are any concern with Warrenties if I purchase one from the US and tried to have it fixed in Canada. (We know Xbox's never need warrenty work). Read more

Gaming session

By Noir - Posted on 30 September 2007

Eric is an old man now. Did he atleast have a sweet gaming session in order to celebrate the occation?

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.


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


Who needs them anyways....

I have lived this...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 27 September 2007

In our real life the role of Cliff is played by Blackwalt and the role of Greg is played by Stormblade.

With this exact author as a matter of fact...

From Real Life Comics.

This is the one instance that I didn't give him book 3 of an impossible to find, low print run, really bad SciFi series.

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

Halo 3 and HoC standards - such as they are...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 26 September 2007

Don't know if we want to bother but it's probably not a bad idea to settle on a standard emblem and service tags.

Here's how to make what we are using so far.

There is a Tomcat icon near the bottom of the selection list. Select this and colour it orange (Emblem primary - 3 down, 2 across).

Pick the cowboy hat from the backgrounds and colour it a red (Emblem background - 2 down, 1 across). Will correct this once I am in the game again.

Use the X button to Toggle Icon and get rid of the stupid bow tie, and you are good to go (this means emblem secondary colour doesn't matter. Read more

Xbox Live Gold for $39

By Coxxorz - Posted on 26 September 2007

That's right, pay just $39 when you order online at Dell. No need to deal with pesky humans! But for those who don't mind braving the unclean hordes, you could get it for $36.90 by price-matching Dell in-store at Best Buy or Future Shop.

If you do buy online from Dell, make sure you sign up with EBATES first, you'll get a $5 signup bonus, and an extra 1% off your orders (2% or more off computer systems).

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

Man shunned by his friends

By Stormblade - Posted on 26 September 2007

For not yet receiving his copy of Halo 3. (sniff)

Hopefully today ...

Actually, it's kind of sad. I am picking up my new car today, but all I am really hoping is that Halo 3 is in the mailbox. Sad, sad, sad.

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....

Limited edition Halo 3 comes with limited damage....

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 September 2007

TeamXbox has more information complete with pictures.

Glad I picked the regular edition now.

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


Please stop talking.
