HoC Random Alternate Sign of the Day - 08302015

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 August 2015

Minutes after yesterday's bedroom sign posted a more appropriate version came to mind

Also rushed but way more fitting. Feel free to download a PDF version even if you are not the intended target.

Continue to feel free to:

  • Stick it on any door you can find (downstairs bathroom, under the tree in the front yard, the broom closet under the stairs, the mind boggles at the possibilities)
  • take a photo
  • email it to halfpint(at)herdofcats.ca
  • wait for us to post it
  • comedy ensues (comedy gold!)

Although since we have started we may want to stick to yesterday's sign. Still can't wait to see your ingenuity.

This may have been a rush job to catch a current topic

Still. Not horrible.

Feel free to download a PDF version even if you are not the intended target.

Then...

  • Stick it on any door you can find (downstairs bathroom, under the tree in the front yard, the broom closet under the stairs, the mind boggles at the possibilities)
  • take a photo
  • email it to halfpint(at)herdofcats.ca
  • wait for us to post it
  • comedy ensues (comedy gold!)

We can't wait to see your ingenuity. Neither can Graybush.


Last Minute August Games with Gold: How to Survive

By Blackwalt - Posted on 29 August 2015

Technically three days and it's full name is How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition

Download How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition from the Xbox site.

Synopsis:

    A complete edition including the original crafting survival zombie nightmare plus 6 additional thrilling DLCs. How to Survive now is more fun and tougher than ever. Survive on a zombie infested archipelago, fulfill your basic needs of food, water and shelter while facing natural and unnatural threats. - An eccentric survival guide will teach you to craft dozens of weapons and tools: from fishing rods or bows, to chainsaws or explosives. - 7 islands filled with exuberant flora and fauna.

I may have downloaded it on the 16th but I haven't played it yet as I can't pull myself away from Dying Light. Upcoming September Games with Gold for Xbox One will be The Deer God and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

    Blackwalt (to Coxxorz): “Asps. Very dangerous. …You go first.”

Technically Coxxorz went second. Our molotovs went in first.

HoC experiences Dying Light: so close to multiplayer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 28 August 2015

In typical Herd of Cats style

    I told Coxxorz about this in an Email and he sent back good story so...

Last night I went online and found Stormblade playing Dying Light. The full version. After some learning experiences we figured out how to get into the same game. Shortly after we got into this game SeanMCR came online.

He saw we were playing Dying Light and assumed we were in the demo. He launched the Dying Light demo and asked us to invite him.

Umm...

We fessed up and told him we were in the full version. There may have been some rage. Which was exactly when Graybush came online.

To help me plagiarize a popular saying, here's an Outside Xbox video on the upcoming Dying Light DLC. This allows me to be an o|x fanboy AND contribute to Blackwalt's Dying Light coverage at the same time. Score!

This actually looks really cool and may end up convincing me to buy this game and play co-op with Blackwalt. The thought terrifies me.

HoC experiences Dying Light: Apocalyptic coffee break

By Blackwalt - Posted on 27 August 2015

One of the side quests from the tower is Coffee

I fulfilled this quest in a quick and timely manner. I understood their need.

I also become basically a volatile that can talk when I don't have my morning coffee. Or afternoon coffee.

Note to Graybush, "no zombies for you!"

By Blackwalt - Posted on 26 August 2015

Last night it was Graybush who was sad. Which also made me sad.

For about two seconds.

Last night I was the one who sent out the email. Addressed to Graybush, SeanMCR, and Coxxorz.

    Email from Blackwalt:

      Re: Der Reise

        We should play more Der Riese because I feel like killing more aliens...

Yes I wanted to kill zombies but I had also enjoyed killing aliens so I was okay with whatever we ended up doing.

SeanMCR came online and invited me to play Call of Duty Black Ops so I did. We had reached level eight of Der Riese when we got the message tha Graybush was online and launching Black Ops. Which is when the trouble started.

    SeanMCR: "You know what would be funny?"

    Blackwalt: "Oh god..."

Outside XBox

By Stormblade - Posted on 26 August 2015

I've been following the guys (and girl) at Outside XBox on YouTube for a while now and I figured I should share with you, in case you aren't aware of them already. They have over a million subscribers so I might very well be sharing something you already know about, but whatever.

The fact is, despite being younger and hipper than we are, their play style is so similar to ours you'd swear they followed us! The videos are funny and entertaining as well as informative.

11.47GB now available on the Xbox Store

The same Xbox Store which has the Dying Light Demo release date listed as 2015-08-27. It's the 26th today isn't it? Whatever. It still let me buy it.

    Download the demo and get a taste of hair-rising zombie action in Dying Light. Master your parkour skills and enjoy unprecedented freedom of movement. Explore a true open world where you can go anywhere and climb anything. Experience game-changing day & night system and take on hair-rising quests in 4-player co-operation. Good Night, Good Luck.

Any guesses what we are playing for Sega Nite? Which is tonight by the way.

UPDATE: Stormblade also posted the demo link at approximately the same time.

SeanMCR, "Let's play Der Riese!"

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 August 2015

So I got a message from SeanMCR that made me happy. But then I was sad.

Last night I received an email from SeanMCR. I did need to run the Moricerevek anti-dyslexia filter to understand it properly but apparently it was an invite to play Call of Duty Zombies: Der Riese...

    Email from SeanMCR:

      Der Reise

        Der reise? Da Reese? Whatever...Graybush's in..in half hour.

        You two?

I gather he wanted to play Der Riese. Which made me happy. This was why all the invites on my Xbox One made me confused. Then my Xbox One asked me if I owned the disc for Call of Duty Ghosts and if I did I should insert it now.

HoC experiences Dying Light: Make up your own damn mind

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 August 2015

No flame war for you!

In a last ditch effort (I assume) to prevent the oncoming flame war between Blackwalt and SeanMCR and between Blackwalt and... uh... everyone else Techland has announced the release of a Dying Light demo.

That's right. A demo. A full six months after Dying Light's original release date (January 27th) a demo will be released on Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4. As a late adopter of Dying Light I say now is your chance to understand my addiction and join me in my downward anti-zombie spiral.

COXXORZ RANDOM DEAL OF THE DAY

Dying Light available for $59.99 digitally through Xbox or in-store at EBgames, Best Buy, or Walmart. This isn't a deal or anything I am just posting it.
