Xbox Live down again. For Xbox 360 users

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 December 2014

At least this time Microsoft is aware they are down

Me? I really just want to play...

I am also confused about the second paragraph in the outage note. The first paragraph says you can't get online. Doesn't this make the second paragraph pointless? Not to mention the additional services listed.

They keep claiming to be the store for gamers and then...

...they sent out their Last Chance Black Friday Ad.

I clicked on the Dead Rising 3 image because I am keeping an eye on that one. I discuss my exact issues with their pricing practices after the break.

Random Denial of the Week

By Coxxorz - Posted on 02 December 2014

So after initially not being able to log into Xbox Live, and then being able to log into Live but not play anything due to the ongoing DDOS attack, I thought it might be informative to check Microsoft's official service status page to see exactly what's affected.

Not so much:

Really Microsoft?

Xbox Live taken down by DDOS attack

A lounge of lizards have taken down Xbox Live

Technically a group called Lizard Squad but if they had bothered to look into it they would have discovered that a group (or herd) of lizards is called a lounge. So there.

From Attack of the Fanboy:

    The Lizard Squad taking down Xbox Live was a “Christmas Present” to Microsoft the group said. They threatened this is just preparation for more things to come during the lead up to Christmas.

And for people that support this group of hacktivists, good on you, they have stuck it to the evil corporation Microsoft.

However, speaking for millions of paying Xbox Live members I would just like to play Destiny on my Xbox so could you stop. And don't ruin my Christmas either, I've asked Santa for new video games.

To be more clear, Microsoft aren't the ones being punished here, the millions of gamers you are keeping off Live are.

PS- The only reason I am writing this story is because I can't get on live!

I am soooo sorry....

HoC Random Advent Calendar of the day - 11302014

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 November 2014

Rolly has not really appreciated the store bought versions

We had been planning this advent calendar for a few weeks. Yesterday, Rolly told us we needed to go to Chapters tomorrow to buy him an advent calendar of his own. Our last production steps may have been rushed but our papercraft, Minecraft Advent Calendar greeted Rolly when he woke up this morning. The Minecraft blocks are full of Lego from the Minecraft Crafting set. I am not spilling any secrets here, the manual was provided next to the boxes.

The character on top is Rolly's Minecraft character. He created the skin himself.
