Rebellion is asking us to vote for them

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 September 2017

Or maybe, since they used three separate emails, they were just spamming me

They are up for two different awards at the GamesRadar 2017 Golden Joystick Awards. So, you know, go vote for them. Or someone else. Whatever.

Rebellion has been short listed for two categories:

  1. Best Audio - Sniper Elite 4
  2. Studio of the Year - Rebellion

Vote here if you want.

Assassin's Creed Origins gets a limited edition headset

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 September 2017

Stormblade just took out a second mortgage...

    The cans in question are the Assassin’s Creed Origins Utopia by Tournaire handcrafted headphones, created through the combined talents of a 3D artist, an art caster, and a goldsmith, all of whom "worked together with the [Tournaire] jeweler for several months." The headphones—aural artwork, really—are made exclusively in France, and will feature an average weight of 150 grams of 18k gold per set. Only ten will be released to the public, and they will sell for €50,000 each, which works out to just shy of $60,000.

Only $60,000.

For the rest of you that are only casual fans you can pickup the slightly cheaper Assassin's Creed Origins: Listen Wireless.

US Navy will use Xbox controllers to steer submarine periscopes

By Akuf - Posted on 19 September 2017

They should at least use the Elite controller.
Also, $38,000 really?

Freestyle Playground: Destiny 2 Live Action Dance Trailer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 September 2017

Destiny 2 launches today. Japan helps you celebrate with the following launch trailer

Thanks Japan.

Stormblade is already warming up his dance moves for the next HoC LAN Party. A restraining order against Q-Bert is in the works.

Here is a link to HoC Dancing in the original Destiny. Stormblade is missing but I put his dancing links in the above paragraph.

Note: I have not picked up a copy of Destiny 2. Is this something we are doing? I am trying to stretch my gaming budget across this Autumn and it is not going well...

Do You Even Game Bro: Dead Alliance Review

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 September 2017

We may have dodged a bullet not picking up Dead Alliance on launch

We did talk about Dead Alliance on Herd of Cats but I am glad we waited to pick it up. Such a good idea for combining zombies and multiplayer battles. Too bad it didn't come to fruition.

Destiny 2 Live Action Trailer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 02 September 2017

Not the puppies!

    Everything you love about Earth is gone. Except for the Last City. And now a psycho rhino named Ghaul is coming to take that away too. On September 6, it’s time to grab some big guns, unite our scattered heroes, and take back our home.

Nathan Fillion rocks!

And yes, we are more cat people. I seem to remember we played the original Destiny quite a bit across both the 360 and the One. However, I am still not sure whether I am picking this up or not. Too many games coming out, too little budget. Will have to see what everyone else is planning.

Releasing September 6th by the way. That is this week!

Ark is here!

By Coxxorz - Posted on 29 August 2017

After two years in "Early Access" status, Studio Wildcard has finally officially released Ark: Survival Evolved with all new content and servers. Unfortunately they have also retired many existing low-population servers to do so, resulting in much table flipping. Luckily the smarter gamers among us play on more than one. Read more

Catching up with Monster Hunter: World

By Blackwalt - Posted on 26 August 2017

I realized I am posting hand-ons before we even talked about the game

    Monster Hunter: World™ introduces a living, breathing ecosystem in which players strive to become the ultimate hunter. Explore a vast new continent and slay terrifying monsters in heart-pounding co-op battles for up to four players. The first worldwide launch in the series on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in early 2018.

So it is possible, although unlikely, that I occasionally go off on tangents about different games. Sometimes this works out (Borderlands, Dead Island) and sometimes it doesn't (Operation Raccoon City). Sometimes the games are only of interest to certain Clan Members (The Crew, Ark Survival Involved, Fortnite). If nothing else, it does provide us with content.

Monster Hunter: World appears to be one of those tangents. It will probably land in the third category edging toward the first. It is a four player cooperative game, it is open world, and it targets giant monsters which appear to be a cross between dinosaurs and dragons. No zombies that I can tell but it still hits many of the HoC Points of Interest.
