- We are really excited to announce that the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta will take place from February 23 at 6 am EST to February 27 at 6 am EST! You’ll be able to preload the game starting on February 21 at 6 AM EST. You can RSVP for the Open Beta here: www.ghostrecon.com/beta.
- The open beta is entirely playable in co-op! Gather your squad and create your own tactics to defeat the cartel. Prefer to go on stealth operations or dive into the enemy camp guns blazing? It’s up to you to decide!
For those of us who have been obsessed with SW: Battlefront over the past few weeks, much of this will be very funny.
Some of it will hit a little too close to home to be funny.

The cheap TV I picked up from Graybush is starting to add up...
My original repair job on the 37" LG cost me a $2.55 capacitor and a little bit of disassembly and soldering time.
This time I had to replace three different parts. Three! Each one of them costing $1.75. Each! $5.93 total! (and some additional disassembly and soldering).
If this gets much worse I am going to have to start billing some of this back to Graybush!
Three turkeys wandered through my back yard in Arundel this morning.
After careful consideration (for a half-second) I named them Blackwalt, Coxxorz and Graybush.
The Ghosts are a legendary US Elite Special Operations team. Tasked to go behind enemy lines in Bolivia, South America. Their goal: to create chaos that will destabilize and eventually break the alliance between the Santa Bianca cartel and the corrupted Bolivian government.
This. Is. Not. Their. Story.
The Herd of Cats is a mundane, mostly Canadian, lesser known, XBox Live clan. Tasked to go into Blackwalt’s basement in Ottawa, Canada. Their goal: to virtually split into four man tactical teams and randomly create chaos within a virtual recreation of Bolivia, South America.
This. Is. Their. Story.
These. Are. The. Details.
- MoriceRevek’s Bachelor LAN
- Blackwalt’s Basement
- March 18, 2017 (after much discussion)
- 14:00 hours

- BYO... booze, headsets, Xbox One, Monitor/TV, Xbox Live membership, copy of Ghost Recon Wildlands, controllers, required cables, etc
A PDF version of this invite should appear in your email at some point.
The possibility of more details in the future does exist.
Sniper Elite 4 Launch Trailer
Not this Valentine's Day for me though. For some reason Amazon isn't shipping my copy of Sniper Elite 4 until February 17th. With an arrival date of February 21st.
Wait... isn't that an entire week after it's release date? Why yes. Yes it is. Several discussions with Amazon customer service has yet to change anything.
Yes I pre-ordered my copy despite my ban on pre-ordering. This is a Rebellion game and since our foray into Zombie Army Trilogy I figure we owe them some loyalty. Anything I can do to pump up their numbers I am going to do.
PS- Pssst! Rebellion? Any time for Zombie Army Trilogy 2.
I got mine! Have you got yours?
Email from Ubisoft:
Blackwalt, download the Closed Beta now!
- GHOSTS, GEAR UP FOR THE CLOSED BETA!
We're happy to invite you to participate in the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon® Wildlands Closed Beta on Xbox One. Play with your friends all weekend to defeat La Yuri and El Polito of the Santa Blanca cartel!
And just in case you forgot to apply to the closed Beta when I told you to! please appreciate this addition to the email:
- INVITE UP TO THREE FRIENDS ON XBOX ONE.
Once invited, your Ubisoft friends have 48 hours to confirm. Any unaccepted invitations will be returned to you.
Fortunately for you guys I don't have three friends. Just you.
And weapon customization as well which begs the question, can I attach an axe to my shotgun?
All I really need is female avatars and shotguns. Everything else is gravy. Although I would be happy playing as Angelina Jolie again.
Star Wars Battlefront MVPs on Sega Nite (Yesterday)
So last night there were actually four HoC members playing in Star Wars Battlefront for the second week in a row.
When the above screen came up at the end of the round with Blackwalt (me!) as MVP of the round we were all a equally impressed as we were surprised. I think I was the most surprised of all.
Still I was feeling pretty good about my Star Wars Battlefront prowess.
And then, Graybush...
With such a huge turn out last week how can we not play Star Wars Battlefront again!
Posted as a reminder that Sega Nite is tonight and we are planning on playing Star Wars Battlefront.
Note that a 3.9GB patch was released yesterday so try to install it in advance. It installed very slowly for me but your mileage may vary.
See you online!
For Herd of Cats four players is huge.
