HoC Xbox One Game Recommendation #4: Titanfall

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 November 2014

Coming out of the comments and into the limelight

TitanFall was originally further down the recommendation queue until I spotted the Collector's Edition in a local EBGames. For $229! It was in a box so large we would not have been able to fit it in our car. Not that I didn't think of going back and getting the CRV because I totally did think of doing that. This was one massive, huge, gigantic box and I wanted it. Which is why I was crying as I walked away to my suddenly too small car.

A Meghan Trainor Parody

I hate to admit this but Coxxorz and I were just talking about the original Meghan Trainor version last week during a coffee run. Mostly me to be fair to Coxxorz.

And the five guys in this video? They have the same amount of rhythm as we do. Yes, none.

Escape Dead Island Trailer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 November 2014

How did I not hear about this until recently?

There is a reason!

Do not buy this until you have at least glanced at the (not positive) reviews. This series is supposedly separate from the Dead Island, Dead Island Riptide, and Dead Island 2 series.

Anyway, just released this week, $39.99 price point, Xbox 360/PS3 generation, at this point skip.

PS- I can see that at some point someone said "can we make Dead Island look more like Borderlands" and it stuck.

Xbox One: Adding External Storage

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 November 2014

This turned out to be anti-climatic after I looked into it

Today a friend asked me to help him out with connecting an external hard drive to his Xbox One. A real friend, not a friend like you guys. So for him, I looked into it.

Turns out all you need to do is plug in an external hard drive and format it. Wow Microsoft, really? What's with that? How un-Microsoftian of you.

There is a little more to it than that but not much.

I have been saying this for years!

Is there enough room here for me to apologize for this? Guess not. Too bad.

I find myself debating buying games I don't have much interest in to justify the XBox One purchase. There aren't even any good Zombie games! Ugh.

An accurate review of Assassins Creed Unity

It really does seem that Ubisoft is trying to become the new EA. Not a target I would think anyone was aiming for.

Every time I read about the required Cell Phone/Tablet App I realize that neither my phone or my tablet are capable (not new enough) to run the Assassins Creed companion App. I wonder how many legitimate buyers are locked out of a chunk of their game due to similar issues. I do realize there are a lot more contentious problems before this one but still.

PS- I guess my copy of Assassins Creed Black Flag will remain in the shrink wrap...

Via Nerd Approved.


GameDealDaily is selling Assassin's Creed Unity (Xbox One download) for just $37.49.


EB Games is offering $100 for select PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles when traded towards a PS4 or Xbox One until Nov. 30th.
