HoC Random One Last Day of the Day - 06172019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 June 2019

Of course, tomorrow is technically an all day travel day so anything may still happen

After three separate flights to get back to Ottawa it is possible that I won't even manage to turn on my Xbox, let alone install Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

HoC E3 2019 Update: Xbox Elite Controller Series 2

By Blackwalt - Posted on 12 June 2019

Much more exciting than the upcoming Scarlett Console

At least to me...

When I told Guba about the new Xbox Console she quickly responded, "No, not until christmas!" Once I finished inwardly crying (and outwardly I admit) I remembered that the new console isn't releasing until Christmas. Hah! "No problem, Guba, I will totally wait..." until Christmas 2020! Wait, what? Yes, Christmas 2020 is the actual release date which I hadn't bothered to notice. This time there was no inward crying, it was all outward. Loud, damp, and, face it, a little messy.

Fortunately, the new Elite Controller (Series 2!) will be launching on November 4, 2019! Which, for those keeping track, is before this Christmas! Whoot!

Ihave yet to find a pre-order link for Canada but I am sure they are out there!

CNet has more: Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 brings Bluetooth, Scarlett compatibility

    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.

Special thanks to wlop for the "borrowed" graphic.
