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

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.

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.
