I'm not coming out of this box until you fix the AC!

As always, the box the fan came in is more fun than the fan itselfAs always, the box the fan came in is more fun than the fan itself

I expect he will only hold out until the next food can is opened...

Less pathetic bonus pic after the break.

HoC Random Streetlight of the Day - 06182018

How many people does it take to change a light bulb?

The City of Ottawa and Hydro Ottawa just reached the halfway point of LED streetlight replacement. Right across from Herd of Cats HQ. So we went and took pictures and even spoke to the Mayor.

This is light number 29,000 (of, one would assume, 58,000 total). Two more years before the project is finished.

More exciting pictures after the break...

Strange Brigade pre-orders now available in Canada

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 May 2018

EBGames now carrying the Collector's Edition pre-order

When Rebellion sent me a PRE-ORDER EDITIONS EXPLAINED! email explaining how to pre-order different versions of Strange Brigade it turned out that none of the options were available yet in Canada.

It turns out that it was only a matter of time. And that time is now. You can pre-order at EBGames Canada as I proved to myself this past Monday.

Just letting you know that if you want to build your own Zeppelin on August 28th that option is now available.

Woohoo. Another Battlefield game.

Apparently the female characters in the game are causing quite a stink. All I can say is dibs.

Games with Gold: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 May 2018

This is one Games with Gold that you don't want to miss

I have never been a huge Metal Gear Solid fan so I was as surprised as anyone at the sheer amount of hours I put into Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

When I discovered Metal Gear Survive and it's four player coop zombies I had issues with the controls. Hoping to get some assistance with the non-standard controls I picked up The Phantom Pain used for $20. Easily the best gaming purchase on my Xbox One this year. I can't explain how much of Coxxorz's time I wasted talking about this game.

More than any previous Games with Gold this is one you need to try. Stealth, weapons, mechs, a dog, a horse, a bikini clad sniper (female fortunately), and even zombie type things. Rated 90% at GameRankings.

The best recommendation I can give is that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the single player version of what I expected Ghost Recon Wildlands to be.

HoC Random Stuff for Sale of the Day - 05232018

By Blackwalt - Posted on 23 May 2018

Have, don't want, don't need

But you can have any of them. Or all. I don't discriminate, cause if I did none of you would be on my friends list. Particularly you. Yes, you.

  • Final Fantasy XV - Royal Edition$30
  • Red Dead Redemption - Game of the Year Edition$10
  • Biogenik Controller Thumb Grips – $5

Contact me through the usual methods or just drop by cash in hand. I don't take credit from you guys. Totally ignoring the hypocrisy of the money I owe Coxxorz and Dan Solo.

Taking one for the Team: co-operative Zombie style (#4)

By Blackwalt - Posted on 22 May 2018

I know cooperative 4-player zombie games isn't really our thing but...

State of Decay 2 releases today and with the the sequel to 2013' State of Decay now supporting four players I figured it was worth an experiment. Early reviews seem to be bouncing around a little so you may want to wait on an HoC verdict. On the other hand if you are interested feel free to join me in taking one for the team and we can fully test out the cooperative portion.

See you online. Or not.

PS- Probably not...

PPS- Not that it matters but State of Decay 2 ticks all three of the Xbox One X Enhanced game options: Xbox One Enhanced, 4K ultra HD, and HDR.
