Now I want an Amazon Alexa

Destiny 2 Ghost Skill AND a Ghost Replica speaker releasing for Amazon Alexa

    Your long-held dream of owning your own Ghost companion is becoming a reality. Sort of. Activision and Amazon have announced a new Alexa Skill that allows you to issue voice commands to Destiny 2, along with a Ghost replica speaker.

Although this needs an Alexa to work ($99), which I don't have, and a copy of Destiny 2 ($49), which I also don't have. With the Ghost coming in at $90 USD, that is a additional investment to get it to work.

However the idea of a Destiny Ghost hanging beside my gaming station as a digital assistant is now something I can't get out of my head...

"Brothers" till the end

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 November 2017

While there are two HoC Live comics in development this one jumped ahead due to the immediate need to more accurately portray the HoC version of Brothers Till The End.

This took us a long time. Not due to the difficulty or the length of the campaign but because we only played it piecemeal. One coop day and then the occasional Sega Nite when no one else made an appearance.

So I'm glad Microsoft came up with this Clubs feature, to keep our friends better organized. Clearly they know us. But as I mentioned to Blackwalt earlier, I have yet to see it accurately display how many of us are online. This despite knowing full well we are online! (see above).

I mean, the only other explanation would be if nobody accepted the Club invite...

Amazon Prime Release Date Fail

By Blackwalt - Posted on 03 November 2017

So Amazon Prime made me want to go to EBGames. How wrong is that?

So here is the thing. Yesterday I posted a story about my Call of Duty: WW2 being shipped from Amazon! It was a happy story. An upbeat story. One complete with a guaranteed delivery date of November 3rd, 2017.

Guess what an Amazon Prime guaranteed delivery date is worth?

Yes, exactly that. Nothing.

I spent the day alternating between a message from Amazon Prime saying my order had left the warehouse and was with the shipping provider AND a message from Canada Post saying that an electronic shipping label had been printed.

My query to Amazon was answered with an assurance that I would be receiving my package today, "I contacted our shipping team with high priority and confirm that your order #701-1730499-7304210 will be delivered today by the end of business day November 3, 2017."

This was not the truth.

Attack of the Zombie Turkeys

You will never encounter anything quite as terrifying as an attack by a Horde of Zombie Turkeys

For our most recent secret Coop Day Pwn Call and I vacillated on our game choice for weeks. Finally settling on How to Survive 2 for a whopping $4.95 (CDN). We took advantage of the Xbox Schocktober sale to pick up this 4-player, cooperative, zombie survival game. The sequel to August 2015's Games with Gold How to Survive which SeanMCR called "the worst zombie game I've ever played."
