The Division 2 Beta is on right now

By Blackwalt - Posted on 07 February 2019

And I have sent out keys!

The following members of the Herd should have received Beta codes for Xbox One (through HoC Procurement):

  • Pwn Call
  • Graybush
  • SeanMCR
  • Stormblade

Chosen completely randomly and it is just statistically unlikely that it is the same individuals as last time. Statistically unlikely but still possibly random!

Don't despair though, I have one key left right now. One for now, they keep showing up in my email... I also think Pwn Call's code will let him invite three other Uplay members but I am not sure.

Contact me quickly if you want that one last code. All codes are for Xbox One.

The Beta runs from today until this Sunday February 10th.

Microsoft's classy Superbowl 2019 Ad

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 February 2019

Good on them to show everyone this is available

I think it surprised a lot of people that Microsoft went this direction instead of promoting their latest whiz-bang Xbox release or Game Pass.

Maybe we can use the Adaptive Controller to improve Q-Bert's gaming. "Look you can use your feet to help." *Q-Bert dies*

No, your feet. *Q-Bert spawns. Q-Bert dies*.

Wait... *Q-Bert spawns. Q-Bert dies*. You know what? Never mind.

*Q-Bert spawns. Q-Bert dies*.

More battle royale, this time in the Titanfall universe

No Titans though. It claims tactical, squad based play.

We could always just try it as it is FREE. And available today (now).

HoC Random Small Batch Rye of the Day - 02032019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 03 February 2019

Really, really small batch. Exclusive you might say.

My local beer brewer, frustrated by my refusal to drink his beer, moved into distilling to meet my preference for rye. Not sure if he was interested by the challenge or interested in slowly blinding me. Could be either, or both.

Every time I drink from you, I go blind.
Every time I drink from you, I go blind.
In the mornin' I get up, and I try to see
Feel alive, but I just can't see.
Every time I drink from you, I go blind.

HoC Random Pumpkins of the Day - 11012018

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 November 2018

Why do I always post these after Halloween?

A mummy (Guba's pick), Bowser (Rolly's pick), and a dying battery (Blackwalt's pick). A better picture of the mummy pumpkin is available after the break showing that it is carved from a white pumpkin which helps to sell the mummy design.

I'm back kind of

By Akuf - Posted on 28 October 2018

As a lot of you know I took a break from building and everything for almost two years for to health reasons.

Built in just under 38 hours for two weeks.


Please stop talking.
