So this will probably be my last newspost for a week or so. I’ve been getting a bunch of comics done in advance, because on Friday morning, I go in to have all four of my wisdom teeth pulled. I imagine my recovery will only take a few days (fingers crossed) but I’ve gone ahead and done all of next week’s comics anyway. If nothing else, I can relax and game a bit. While on painkillers.
Starting today, if you jump on Xbox Live, you can now purchase the first Ctrl+Alt+Del Gamer Picture Pack. It’s 200 points, and while I’m not sure how much that equals in human dollars, I am told that is a fairly standard rate for these kinds of things. Additionally, the Ctrl+Alt+Del Animated Series Season One is now available on Xbox Live. I believe the episodes are 250 points each. You can find all of it on the Marketplace listed under “Blind Ferret Entertainment”, the producers of the animated series (GamerPics and Themes > New Arrivals >Blind Ferret Entertainment > Picture Pack… episodes are under Game Videos somewhere).
I know the listing for the picture pack says “eleven” pictures, but I assure you, there are twenty pictures there. I was told to do ten, I did eleven, then a few weeks later they came back and asked for nine more, but apparently that change never made it into the description. Just an assortment of characters. If these do alright we’ll definitely make another pack, and I’ll collect some feedback as far as what characters you want.
I’ve got a couple of new shirt designs that I’m hoping we’ll have out before Christmas. The first is pretty self explanatory:
My first reaction was “CCG packs are going to drop from these giant rats and wolves? Are you serious?” But then I figure, “Hey, it’s a one weekend special event, and it’s free cards. Why the hell not?”
I played in a tournament for the card game this past weekend. I came in 68th out of 128, so I guess you could say I juuuuust slid in on the losing half. Was kind of fun though.
Guitar Hero 3… I think I’m just about done with it. I’ll hang on to the game and guitars, because if nothing else we can use them at Digital Overload next year. But I’ll tell you, right now it’s completely up in the air which game we run a tournament for (GH3 or Rock Band).
I can say (with more than a little satisfaction) that we’re dumping Counter-strike from the tournament list this year, and replacing it with Team Fortress 2.
