Sega Nite - 011817

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 January 2017

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.

Based on Stormblade's attempted murder (of me!(again!)) in Star Wars Battlefront.

While we all accept that he could not intentionally crash his TIE Fighter into me (in Star Wars Battlefront) we all also accept that he totally would have if it was allowed.

Will we see Deadpool costarring with an Oscar soon?

I don't think Negasonic Teenage Warhead believes it is a possibilityI don't think Negasonic Teenage Warhead believes it is a possibility

Adding to Ryan Reynold's Year of Deadpool, the Deadpool movie has a legitimate chance at receiving an Oscar nomination.

For Best Picture.

Um, Deadpool Could Actually Get a Best Picture Oscar Nomination

While this sounds wrong the talk did not begin with Deadpool's Golden Globe nomination for Best Musical or Comedy Film (it didn't win, boo!). It started after Deadpool won a Critics’ Choice Award and was nominated for a Writers Guild Award.

Still, no one thought a Oscar Best Picture nomination was more than a pipe dream. Until...

Sega Nite with Stormblade (I know!) and Graybush

We never expected to finish a round 1st, 2nd, 3rd. In any game, let alone Star Wars Battlefront.

In any game with more than three players that is.

And Coxxorz just joined. Time for the top four spots!

Loosely based on HoC Random Peer Pressure of the Day - 010717 and on the additional fact that my copy of Star Wars Battlefront may have arrived today and that I may be installing it.

As usual it is Graybush's fault

This excludes all those times when it was Stormblade's fault, Q-Bert's fault, and/or occasionally Coxxorz' fault

One night after our 0% experience in Ghosts

We did start our night with Ghosts along with SeanMCR but he bailed fairly quickly after our first round. Wanting something a little different Graybush and I switched to Zombie Army Trilogy. Strangely enough it was Graybush's choice.

I went down fairly often, needing Graybush to revive me each time. The video is one of the closest occurrences. We didn't quite hit zero but it was very close.

So. Funny story.

Since Star Wars Battlefront's release in November of 2015 it has been mentioned on HerdofCats many times. A list is included after the jump. A significant number of these have been by Stormblade lamenting that HoC has not jumped on the Star Wars band wagon and joined him online. We still haven't. Coxxorz' even purchased a copy at $29.99 during a summer sale and still has it safely stored in the shrink wrap.

My primary issue was the initial cost of Star Wars Battlefront. $79.99 for the game and $69.99 for the Season Pass. Expensive enough even if the internet hadn't exploded over the lack of content in the initial game release.

Then along came Graybush, late on a Friday night (yesterday) while in the middle of a round of Zombie Army Trilogy.

Graybush and Blackwalt return to Call of Duty Ghosts: Extinction

We didn't remember how to play.

Thursday night Graybush kept me up late playing Ghosts while I simultaneously watched the World Junior Hockey Gold Medal game. Now I can usually pull myself away from gaming or from watching hockey to go to bed on time but it appears I can not pull myself away from both at the same time.

We had a moment during a failed, glitched challenge that was, well, close...

I keep hearing this from everywhere...

... yet I still haven't been tempted to buy Titanfall 2. I haven't bought Battlefield One either and I do own Titanfall 1.

But still not tempted.

Yet.
