Freedrive Stunts make The Crew Wild Run DLC more interesting

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 June 2016

With the DLC The Crew gets a lot more Playful!

Somehow I missed this mode in my previous reading although technically it was added in a recent patch to The Crew: Wild Run. The Freedrive Stunts read like an ongoing series of Burnout Paradise's challenges. Selected on the fly and cooperative.

    When starting a FreeDrive Stunt, the game will give a “personal goal” or a “collaborative goal”. This means, when playing in a crew, sometimes everyone will have to get his own stunt done and other times, everyone will participate to get the challenge completed.
    There are several types of stunts, among them:
  • Driving a certain distance.
  • Drifting a certain distance.
  • Jumping a certain distance.
  • Staying in the air for a certain time.
  • Near miss a certain number of vehicles.
  • Doing wheelies.
  • Smashing elements.

And much more…

More details available on the Official site.

Note: I have not bought either the Wild Run or the season pass. So don't buy it expecting to join me. However, I could probably be convinced...

Let's play Minecraft Tower Defense

SeanMCR (and some zombies) kept me up past my bedtime!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 June 2016

Past 10:30. PAST 10:30!

It was totally unreasonable and completely zombie mode related. SeanMCR had a daily challenge in Black Ops 3. Survive 15 rounds. Sadly it took us two attempts. But that second attempt was a great game, all the way to Round 32. Over twice what he needed.

I am not sure how SeanMCR managed to continue over the constant whining about bedtime but he did persevere and persevered well.

HoC 2016 Fathers' Day... Sunday Drive?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 June 2016

This will be the Fourth Annual Occurrence of no one showing up!

The no one showing up may be related to how late I continually post these.

Today as a tribute to Father's everywhere be sure to show up on Xbox Live at 9:30ish to boot randomly around in The Crew. Why? Why ask why? Just show up.

Another reminder that this is a virtual LAN. It's not that I don't want to see you in person, it's that I don't want to see you in person.

Oddly, I am amazed that I posted it this early! The graphic was a complete rebuild as my backup drive failed.

Games with Gold #2 June 2016: The Crew

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 June 2016

I can't say enough about this game. If you have the slightest interest in driving games you should be trying this

Supports four-player co-op as you drive around a massive re-creation of the US. Drive through New York, Colorado, the Grand Canyon.

I have so much to say I don't know where to start! Some totally random thoughts after the original launch trailer!

Solving an Xbox One controller problem

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 June 2016

A simple solution to a simple problem

So today Rolly is planning a sleep over at a friend's. The entire reason behind the sleep over is to play Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 on his friend's Xbox One. All good except Rolly needs to take an Xbox One controller for himself. Technically I only have one good controller for my Xbox One. The one I use - an Xbox One Special Edition Covert Forces (above right in the photo).

Sniper Elite 4 Gameplay

By Stormblade - Posted on 16 June 2016

Outside XBox again (I like these guys, so sue me) playing pretty much like I would. Actually, I would probably be a little more stealthy.

OXBOX plays For Honor

By Stormblade - Posted on 15 June 2016

I am really looking forward to this one. The gameplay looks intense and the fighting more interactive than standard button mashing.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands official gameplay trailer

This is how it will work with 4 player co-op.

At least, it's how it would work with 4 players working co-operatively. We will never ... and I do mean NEVER ... accomplish this.
