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

Sega Rally!

By Coxxorz - Posted on 20 September 2007

I shrieked with glee when I first read that the demo had been released on Live. I couldn't wait to get home. Anticipation turned to disappointment when I realized that this is not the rally game you're waiting for. But whatever, it's a racing game, and you can't go wrong with Sega, right?

Maybe. 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.

Leafs a .500 team

By Ice - Posted on 18 September 2007

Ok Looks like the Toronto Maple Leafs will be a .500 team this year, that is if the first intersquad game is a reflection.

The record after the first game is 1 win 1 lose

So for all those skeptics that didn't think the Leafs would win a game this year. We are 1-1 in games that don't count and that we played against ourselves.

If you wonder why Maurice never posts comments...

By Q-Bert - Posted on 18 September 2007

It's because he never logs in beforehand. Tragic really. All his comments making fun of me will just remain in the moderation queue and rot there.

Really.... tragic...

To the first person who can get me a receipt from EB Games for any used game, dated between June 3 and August 7. Good for one adult admission to an actual movie theatre (my apologies for making you leave the house). Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.

Colin McRae, 1968 - 2007

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 September 2007

For Snuffy D and Coxxorz. Copied and pasted from CodeMasters.

Everyone at Codemasters, especially those who worked directly with Colin McRae, is deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic events of this weekend.

The loss of Colin McRae is deeply distressing. That it involved his son and another so young makes it even more tragic. Our thoughts are with his family and those closest to him and we share in their pain. Read more

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

I've been away too long

By Stormblade - Posted on 17 September 2007

For those of you who wonder about the differences between French and Quebecois (anyone??), Q-Bert translated this message I sent to him in French.

Je n'etais pas capable de lire l'Angais, mais quand meme, je serais la.

Avec mon XBox 360.

Translated into Quebecois:

J'chus pas capable de lire ton crisse d'anglais, mais m'a etes la quand meme, s'ti.

J'amene mon 360, pis j'vous en crisse toute une....

Obviously, I've been away too long.

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
