New parts, New poster, same old club!

Just wanted to let all of you that didn't come to the last meeting (the 25th?) that you missed a great start to a kick ass year. I've finished one of three flyers that I'll be sending out monthly to invite new members to the club. If you're reading this as a new member, or just forgot, here's our club guidelines:
-If you're new to the club, you can be booted at any time for any suspicious behavior or poor sportsmanship.
-All of the school rules during the day STILL apply during the night. Some cussing will be tolerated, but there are still teachers in the building at night so watch your attitude.
-Cheating is NOT tolerated on any level, and if you even attempt to cheat you'll be kicked. (out)
-Bring money for dinner....Ok, that's not a real rule, but we're not made of money.

Phew, now that that's over, I just wanted to let you know that I ordered my new parts and installed them over the last week. I'll be posting stats for my 8600GT (which I'm extremely happy with) later this week.
Happy hunting!

The Orange Box, Final Club Dates, and Cake

Well the much awaited Orange Box was released today and trust me, it's everything you could ever want in a video game. I've played through Portal, gotten all the sniper unlocks in TF2, and I'm on the way to finishing the real fight in HL2:EP2. If you haven't bought it yet, do it right now. On a more related note, the first real V.G.E. meeting will be held October 25th, in room 103 until 8:00. It won't be required this meeting, but if you don't already own TF2, CS:S, or HL2:DM buy them before the next meeting. (Nov 29) I'm only asking you because we're going 100% legal. On yet another note email me at if you have a Xbox360 and a copy of Halo3 to bring. Oh, and the cake isn't a lie.

Halo 3 Forge Fun

Here's some fun stuff I made on Halo 3-Forge:

Did I mention...Halo 3?

So I checked my Best Buy preorder and guess what I found? A tracking number! It looks like they planned the online preorders perfectly and shipped them Friday so they would arrive exactly at the release date. So anywho, just thought I'd let you know that I'm getting it, are you? Also, I just thought I'd let Ben know that I successfully hacked his PSP, although I bricked it twice before I got it right. ^^

Well, now that we've covered the horrible stuff, I just wanted to let you all know about this neat app I found today called Joost. Joost is a fully functional, legal alternative to DirectTV made by the team that worked on Skype. It's in a "closed" beta right now but all you have to do is sign up here with a valid name (no Mr. 1337h4x0rz) and wait for a activation email leading to a download link. Have fun!

(P.S. Pre-order Halo 3 or die)

Updates, free legal DirectTV, and Halo 3!

I just wanted to fill you in about what's happening with the club this year. I could write a long, unnecessarily wordy summary for you, but I'll just put it into a few key points:
  • June will no longer be our adult supervisor, we are still looking for one.
  • The club is still alive, and the first meeting will be held October 19th.
  • We will be featuring full non-profit tournaments for games such as:
    • Counter Strike Source (Scoutknivez Mod and Hostage Rescue)
    • Unreal Tournament 2004
    • Halo 3
    • Dead or Alive 4
  • The club is still not funded, but may be by the end of the year.
  • On a final note, we will be phasing out "game-sharing" and require members to own their own copies of the games we play.
