A future home for my Xbox Series X

By Blackwalt - Posted on 29 November 2020

With no plan to buy one soon

I am not saying I won't, I am just saying I have no plan to buy one.

So here's the thing – I didn't even attempt to pre-order an Xbox Series X. I didn't even plan on buying an early version. Our Clan plans – except for Graybush who got his hands on THREE! – discussed over several Sega Nites and one or two coffee runs were to wait.

To wait and see how things turned out and, perhaps more importantly, wait to see if there was a special edition announced.

The thing about the fridge design of the Xbox Series X is it lends itself to easy redesigns.

But then, then, the Xbox Series X was released and...

I have mixed emotions about this

I am not sure if I should be proud or ashamed.

Probably ashamed ...

HoC Random "YOU LIE!" of the Day - 11062020

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 November 2020

Stupid Xbox is just torturing me

I wouldn't mind except every other dashboard message is "Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is ready to play!"

PS- Of course I tried, and no, it's not playable.

HoC Random Kill, Kill, Kill of the Day - 11052020

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 November 2020

Showing the boys how it's done in Call of Duty Black Ops II

And in order: one bullet for Pwn Call, one bullet for Graybush, and one bullet for Stormblade.

Please note that normally I am the one being shown...

Our recent tendency on Sega Nite has been to work our way through older Call of Duty titles. With Graybush and his squirrels hosting.

Graybush hates hosting as much as the rest of us so he takes it out on us by forcing us through many unseen and unplayed game modes.

HoC Random Addiction of the Day - 10242020

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 October 2020

I didn't know Fallout 76 had a live action trailer! I love those!

So in tribute to Microsoft's purchase of Bethesda I decided to try Fallout 76. Which supports coop multiplayer by the way.

And while it is presently on sale for $21.99, it is also on Xbox Game Pass which is how I am playing it. AND is free to play this weekend.

I did suffer a mild addiction to Fallout 3 (playing it well after release) but did not enjoy Fallout 4 at all. Barely putting any time into it.

HoC Random Love Note of the Day - 10152020

By Blackwalt - Posted on 15 October 2020

Do I get love notes from Starbuck's Baristas? No... But Roland?

We tend to go to Starbucks a lot. With Coxxorz, as a family, just Rolly and I. A lot.

Several years ago Roland's favourite barista left our primary Starbucks location and we lost track. When Guba and I went to a different Starbucks we ran into said Barista. After catching up we ordered a snack to take home to Rolly. It came with the above personalized love note.

Needed bigger coffee cups. Figured they might as well be HoC.
And a new mouse pad for good measure.
