Gears Of War 2 Patch Hits!

Title update 2 for Gears Of War 2 has finally arrived addressing a number of issues with the online multiplayer. The patch seems to have fixed a huge amount of glitches and exploits which is going to make the online experience much more enjoyable again. The glitches were really starting to piss me off and I stopped playing for a while, but now I hope to play more with the arrival of this latest update.

Epic has released this list of the problems that have been addressed in Title Update 2:

The Storm Has Passed

The team blog hasn’t been updated in a while. The last post was October 30th, the last week before the clusterfuck of games were released. From Novemeber 7th up until December we’ve had 3-4 titles being released every week, all games that have been higly anticipated. This is the main reason that there hasn’t been much in the way of updates, we’ve simply spent all of our spare time playing these new releases.

But it’s getting to the stage now when games are being released at a much slower pace, giving everyone a chance to rest and play the christmas releases. So now updates should be more frequent because more spare time will be invested into the blog.

We’ve done no clan matches, there is no major news, updates or anything like that. We’ve just been doing what we do best.. Playing games!

However you will notice that we have a new banner! Avatars were introduced in the lastest dashboard update, making the old gamercards redundant. Thefore we thought it would be best to change the banner to include our avatars! If you’re confused by whos avatar is whos here’s a breakdown:

Update [23/10/08]

[Tomo’s Saints Row 2 Character]

Just a small post to update you guys on what is going on with us right now:

Mark’s Xbox:
Mark96’s Xbox 360 gave him a E74 error and had to be sent in for repair. Fortunately he just received an e-mail saying that the console has been repaired and is now being shipped back to him. So he should be back online any day now.

The Christmas Clusterfuck:
There wont be alot posted here in the next few weeks because we’re in the middle of the Christmas Clusterfuck. A lot of our time will be spent playing new games that are being shoved down our throats over this holiday season. One of the titles due to emerge on the 7th Nov is Gears 2. When that hits we hope to be able to organize some nice clan matches, so stay tuned for those.

Saints Row 2:
Saints Row 2 was released and we all bought a copy (except for Mark96, due to the above reasons) and myself and Tomo have been murdering the co-op mode. Unfortunately Volition thought it would be a great idea to remove the fantastic game modes introduced and Saints 1 (such as Protect Tha Pimp, Blinged Out Ride & Big Ass Chains) and replace them with a mode called Strong Arm, which involves players trying to complete a mixture of activities to earn cash and win the game. Then to top it all off they removed clan support! Which really rattled my cage. We were hoping to defend our title and beat our previous leaderboard record (7th), but that’s never gonna happen now.

Anyway, moving on a wrapping up, here is something that myself and Tomo found whilst messing around in Saints 2’s co-op:

Bungie weekly update reveals option to retrieve save films on PC!

The latest Bungie Weekly Update has revealed some interesting information regarding saved films.

I’ve always wanted to be able to retrieve my saved films from Halo to view on my PC. Without the need for expensive gear and unlimited hard drive space. Well now Bungie have answered mine (and many other fan’s) prayers and are now allowing the option to ‘Render Video’ and retrieve the file in WMV format

From Bungie.net:

And that new feature is? Render-to-video! At long last, you won’t need to have a video capture card to free your saved film from the confines of your Xbox. Integrated right into the Bungie.net file-sharing experience alongside current features like “Copy to My File Share” and “Download to Halo 3” will be “Render to Video” where your short Saved Films or Film Clips (length and quantity to be determined) can come to life as a computer-playable WMV file which can be downloaded to your computer, or seen on Bungie.net alongside other game content like your Screenshots.

We’re still finalizing quite a few implementation details and trying to determine at what temperature a server melts into a pool of slag that will drip through the datacenter floor. So stay tuned over the next few weeks as we get those last details sorted out. In the mean time, enjoy the Title Update, and keep that great content on your file shares.

So it looks like that the system will simply convert the file into WMV so that you can download it to PC. But there’s no mention of a system that allows you to stream the media direct from Bungie.net. But that’s no bother, that’s what YouTube is for!

I always wondered why Bungie never implemented this from the start, it’s a huge step for the game, but it’s a shame that it’s come this late as most people have moved on from Halo.

It says at the bottom of that quote to stay tuned to the weekly update for the next few weeks, and that there’s still a few things they need to sort before implementation. So I’ll bet we see it at some point before christmas, giving us something else to look forward to!

Also mentioned in the update is that fact that Luke and Brian are in Tokyo for TGS. So could we hear more about the higly anticipated expansion pack at TGS? I hope so.

Update [29/06/08]

It’s been a while since the webpage has been updated and the clan has been neglected the last month or two. This keeps happening and it’s not good, but allot has been going on in all of our social lives and we’ve simply had no time!

Myself and LCDking have been very busy with college work but our academic year is coming to an end now and during the summer everyone is going to have allot more spare time!

Battlefield: Bad Company
Now this has just been released and I was hoping to be able to start some clan matches with this game. Unfortunately EA suck a big one and have left out allot of online features in the full game. There is no option in BF:BC to host a private match, all games have to be played using the matchmaking system. This makes it impossible to arrange any form of clan match.
However it does look like EA are going to be heavily supporting BF:BC. It’s been announced that a new game mode will be patched in shortly and clan support may be added in a later patch! I hate to be pessimistic but previous experiences with EA have taught me that they’re fuckers when it comes to supporting a game, but only time will tell with this one!

Website Content
I’m sure you’ve all noticed my experimental videos floating around. They don’t take me a massive ammount of time to complete and they’re bringing in allot of page views for us! I’ll continue making the videos when I see fit but during the summer the clan is my main proirity.

All of us involved in the team have always been close. I want that to show on our webpage! So i’m hoping that some of you guys can write articles from time to time to help contribute to the team website! It’s easy enough to do and we’re all more than capable. I’ll speak with you guys about it soon and hopefully we can get some great content running on here!

Clan Matches
During the summer we will be playing allot more clan matches! I’ve been talking to quite a few lads to arrange a few games outside of leaderboards such as GameBattles. In the next couple of weeks i’ll start contacting people and arranging clan matches.

I’ll keep everyone posted as usual!

We have a superb team, some of the most experienced players on Xbox Live. That probably comes across big headed but fuck it! We are! When we play as a team, everyone on form, plenty of practice before a game we are unstopable! It’s about time we conquered the world boys!!

CAN I GET A OHHH RAHH!!
