Pre-Order Trailer: Surviving Mars

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 February 2018

Colonize Mars before Elon Musk beats you to it!

Available March 15th, 2018.

    In Surviving Mars, players will lead a colonization effort on the surface of Mars, from the very first rovers and supply drops to the construction of suitable habitats for brave settlers from Earth. Every colonist will be vital to the mission as the colony struggles to gain a foothold where the environment is hostile and resources are scarce. With each success, however, players will gain the ability to expand further, and even establish a thriving society – and lead a new generation that has never known the Earth.

Via Pure PlayStation which I know is just wrong but there will be an Xbox version.

Monster Hunter: World - Launch Trailer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 28 January 2018

I would not rush out. Particularly on Xbox One

The first game I have paid full price for in a while. I think I would have enjoyed it more at a reduced price.

HoC Random Arm Wrestling of the Day - 01282018

By Blackwalt - Posted on 28 January 2018

During a Monster Hunter World coop day

So steam punk Pwn Call discovered the Arm Wrestling mini game within Monster Hunter World and immediately challenged my barbarian princess. My Princess may have been over celebratory.

QUICK NOTE: unless something about Monster Hunter World really interests you skip it for now.

OMG! Revek! Revek! Revek!

They have posted a co-op trailer for Metal Gear Survive

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 January 2018

Although, for me, Ballroom Blitz doesn't really work

I did enjoy watching the zombies dangle from balloons. That was awesome. I wonder if you can do that to your teammates?

I didn't play the Metal Gear Survive Beta last night as I am trying out Metal Gear Solid V the Phantom Pain to help me figure out the controls.

Just so you know, the controls are completely different!.

The single player looks more interesting to me than the co-op survival mode

I have played the Metal Gear Survive and, while not completely enamored, I am plan on playing it some more. Being unfamiliar with the Metal Gear gaming interface hurt a lot.

Random notes about Metal Gear Survive after the break...

Metal Gear Survive Beta now available on Xbox One

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 January 2018

Wasn't interested until I read "Play METAL GEAR SURVIVE’S CO-OP mode before the release of the full game!"

And, to be fair, I knew nothing about this game until I saw the Beta was available. Reading up on it now. Will let you know...

Download the Metal Gear Survive Betafrom the Microsoft Store or you can find it directly from your Xbox One.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 16 January 2018

Free! Zombies! Survival! Free! Download it now!

    London is falling. Are you prepared? The Last Blight is upon us. It was foretold. For the second time in history, a great plague has shrouded London in a fog of death. Big Ben tolls as thousands of unprepared die, or worse, are infected by a sickness more gruesome than death.

    You’re still breathing, for now, but how long will you survive the labyrinth of London’s streets and underground canals, abandoned by the outside world and surrounded by infected? The horrifying remains of humanity, ravaged by the terrifying disease, are shuffling through the streets, waiting at every turn to prey on your living flesh.

    The nail-biting survival experience of ZombiU™ has been upgraded for download on next-gen consoles and PC. Zombi takes the power of the latest generation of hardware to bring you a new level of horror. Test your will to survive, but beware: death is permanent, and one wrong move can cause you to lose everything.

Actually $4.00 at Dollarama but still...

This is the complete edition with the included guitar. For Wii U.

While the Guitar is universal, the included USB dongles are platform specific.

HoC Random "My Car!" of the Day - 01112018

By Blackwalt - Posted on 11 January 2018

Sega Nite. Far Cry 4 - Valley of the Yetis DLC.

Playing cooperative Far Cry 4 Coxxorz and I came across a trader in danger. We immediately jumped out of our jeep (stolen jeep) to rush to his aid. And to buy more stuff. While Coxxorz went to the traders aid I discovered a more pressing problem with our ride.

I forgot the parking brake!

I only wish my Xbox One had also recorded the dialog between myself and Coxxorz.

Almost better than yesterday's achievement

In Far Cry Primal again.

    BEES!      10

HoC Random Achievement of the Day - 01082018

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 January 2018

Far Cry Primal

    Here Kitty      20

    Tame the bloodfang sabretooth.

Still not my favourite achievement but pretty close.

Far Cry Primal was well worth the $22 CDN from the 2017 Xbox Countdown Sale.


Please stop talking.
