HoC Random Burt Reynolds of the Day - 09102018

The Mayor. Saints Row the Third

Burt Reynolds 1936-2018

While everyone else remembers him in Smokey and the Bandit gamers will always have him as the Mayor of Steelport in Saints Row the Third. Playing himself, duh, cause who else could keep that town running.

HoC Random Benchy of the Day - 09012018

Our summer project arrived last Thursday. It was slightly back ordered.

However, a determined 12 year old made sure that our 3D printer kit was assembled as soon as possible. We expected more issues calibrating but we were getting acceptable results quickly. This was our second attempt at our second print. Human error ended the first attempt early...

Print time was approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Extinction never got the love it deserved!

Cough... Sega Nite... Cough.

Rainbow Six Siege had an awesome zombie survival mode

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 August 2018

And we missed it!

Zombie-ish technically and it lasted for one month only and disappeared six months ago.

I only mention it as rumours are swirling that it may come back. Hopefully permanently.

    Operation Chimera, which launched earlier this week, is the start of the new season for Rainbow Six: Siege. The biggest addition is Outbreak, a three player co-op game mode where operators fight against an army of grotesque infected enemies. It is a mode that focuses first and foremost on teamwork. More details available from Kotaku

This looks like the closest we will see to Extinction for a while so I hope it comes back.

You know there's a problem when you can't sign into Xbox Live, and their Twitter feed sends you to the status page, and the status page is unavailable. Microsoft denial at its finest!

Maybe a status update on the status of the Status page is on their Twitter feed now...

HoC Random Opposite Day of the Day - 08142018

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 August 2018

So HoC received an email from Stormblade

    From: Stormblade
    Subject: Wednesday Game Night
    Date: Today

    I know that has fallen to the wayside and I am at least partly to blame for it, but I thought I would reach out to see if anyone is interested it attempting a revival of SEGA night.

    I now have Vermintide II and I have pre-ordered Strange Brigade, both of which suit our general (ahem) ‘playing’ style, and of course there are oldies but goodies.

    Anyway, just throwing it out there.

Speaking of throwing it out there... No Man's Sky, Conan Exiles, and Zombies.

Taking one for the Team: co-operative not-Zombie style (#5)

By Blackwalt - Posted on 11 August 2018

I think we all knew this was coming...

First mentioned on Herd of Cats back in July 2016 by Aku, No Man's Sky has always been a game that interested me.

The Xbox One version with the NEXT patch is providing a improved experience to Xbox players vs the original PS4 release two years ago. Particularly the inclusion of multiplayer. Yes, No Man's Sky is now four player coop. Magic words for HoC.

Technically, I have yet to click on the Buy button but it is only a matter of time.
