Ark 2 announced at The Game Awards

By Blackwalt - Posted on 12 December 2020

Starring Vin Diesel

More dinosaurs with Pwn Call! And without Stormblade and Greybush (they are afraid of dinosaurs).

And we're back!

This is what I get for asking Q-Bert to fix my email...

Which we aren't sure IS fixed.

Play as Milla! In Monster Hunter World cross over

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 December 2020

Now I have to reinstall my copy of Monster Hunter World

Yes, I already own Monster Hunter World. See these stories:

And, of course, Stormblade's reference to the movie starring Milla Jovovich which totally explains the cross over.

Read all the details at Capcom.

HoC Random Bad Connection of the Day - 12012020

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 December 2020

An unscheduled Sega Nite of jumpiness, warping, and lag. But it wasn't SeanMCR.

While SeanMCR was there, the bad internet connection was all mine. All mine.

My evening of Black Ops Cold War was rife with bad connections. Graybush and Stormblade were laughing at my character's entertaining movement and complaining about my poor voice communication. I did a quick Speedtest (without proper implementation) and discovered that my upload speed was missing. Absent. Absconded without me.

My expected 10 Mbps was coming in at less than 1 Mbps. I know you never get your full advertised provider numbers (75 Mbps DL and 10 Mbps UL in my case), particularly without setting up a proper test connection (only one machine connected to the Modem). But still, I usually see better upload numbers on average. SeanMCR was enjoyng being on the opposite side for a change. This despite an ample amount of swearing coming through his microphone.

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

By Stormblade - Posted on 20 November 2020

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

Probably ashamed ...

Happy new Assassin's Creed Day

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.
