By Blackwalt - Posted on 11 June 2019

    It's been one week since you looked at me
    Cocked your head to the side
    and said I'm angry

              - Barenaked Ladies

One week left until I can play Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It just seems like forever.

HoC Random Eight Whole Days of the Day - 06102019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 10 June 2019

Eight days! That's, like, more than a week!

It is possible that I might be starting to regret my totally awesome purchase of Assassin's Creed Odyssey while in Greece.

Particularly since the promised Discovery Tour made so popular in Assassin's Creed Origins has yet to be released. The Discovery Tour option being one of the primary reasons I picked up the game. The chance to tour the actual locations I am visiting back when they were not ancient. Or ruins.

The kitchen for our Greek Cooking Class in Nafplion had a theme

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 June 2019

Just a reminder that Herd of Cats is tweeting from Greece

No real reason for the reminder except for the time that I tweeted some of my best stuff from the New York Makerfaire and none of you even noticed...

HoC Random Oh-oh of the Day - 06072019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 07 June 2019

So, everybody remember yesterday when I bought a Greece based game while in Greece?

It took a while to sink in but I am in Greece.

My Xbox One is in Canada.

This seems to be a problem. It will be eleven days until I can even start installing it, let alone playing it.

Eleven days!

HoC Random Spam of the Day - 06062019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 June 2019

I did not respond or click on any of the dubious links...

    Dear friends,

    This is a quick note to tell you that Giulia and myself will be wed on Thursday June 13, 2019, in the afternoon at City Hall in Ottawa. It will be a mini-ceremony lasting all of 10 minutes. My cousin Revek and my father will be present. There won't be a reception that day.

    We will be taking a video of the ceremony, as Giulia's father, and my mother, won't be able to attend. We will put the video on Youtube.


I put this right next to my Nigerian Prince emails.

HoC Random Video Game of the Day - 06062019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 June 2019

It somehow seemed appropriate to buy this game in Greece

    Described on the Official Web Site as Assassin's Creed Odyssey, embark on an epic journey in Ancient Greece to become a legendary Spartan hero.

Ancient Greece! See, appropriate.

We had our own epic journey in Athens to obtain this legendary artifact.

HoC Random Fixer-Upper of the Day - 06032019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 03 June 2019

The last owner really let this place go, I hope they find a good realtor

I did not make an offer.

Apparently, despite it's decriptitude they gave it an ostentatious name, The Parthenon.

I mean, really, how is ever going to sell now?

Herd of Cats goes to Greece

By Blackwalt - Posted on 02 June 2019

So I may not have mentioned my June plans

Reached Athens today. So far lots of old rocks and street cats.

Ottawa Comic Con 2019

By Akuf - Posted on 13 May 2019

Ottawa Comic Con has come and gone.
This year was a blast
I made a new Thanos costume and The Mountain

I also, realized how a Starbucks cup can trigger idiots

I was having a coffee in my civvies
Then I suited up and grabbed my coffee and someone said the Starbucks cup is hilarious, it took me a second and then I laughed, and walked around with it

More Pics after the jump

Razer Toaster.. WTF?

By Akuf - Posted on 03 May 2019

Ok I'm still unsure if I believe this or not
It started as an April fool's joke but it has become reality?
