Revisiting Zombie Chronicles: Ascension

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 May 2017

Game: Call of Duty Black Ops. Map: Ascension

In an article yesterday I read about a Playstation player who missed playing the original Zombie Chronicles maps once he retired his PS3. This lead me to realize how lucky we were to have backwards compatibility on the Xbox One. Compatibility that included the three Call of Duty games that included the Original zombie maps. While waiting for the Xbox release of Zombie Chronicles I decided this would be the ideal chance to revisit the original maps in their original forms. One player, one attempt... How bad could it be?


Number five: Ascension

Remember how I keep hoping that this will get better? Turns out this doesn't happen in Ascension although I thought it was going well. Still no double digits.

The stakeout! I think the happiest I have been replaying these classic zombie maps was when I found the stakeout on the wall and had enough money to buy one. My favourite shotgun from the zombie maps and I demonstrated it on as many zombies as I could find!

I managed to find the Tickle trunk and even get a LMG. I worked my way to the open area and was about to set up in the back room that we usually camped. I never managed to open the large door as the zombies coming out of the mud took me out. This was when I realized I had forgotten to buy Quick Revive.

Oh yeah. Zombie Sega Nite

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 May 2017

Maybe you guys can show me how to play some of these maps

We can stick with the classic Zombie Chronicles maps or move on to some of the ones that aren't included in the remastering: Five, Die Rise, Rise of the Dead, Mob of the Dead, Der Riese (NO!), and others.

Zombies!

Revisiting Zombie Chronicles: Kino Der Toten

Game: Call of Duty Black Ops. Map: Shi No Numa

This lead me to realize how lucky we were to have backwards compatibility on the Xbox One. Compatibility that included the three Call of Duty games that included the Original zombie maps. While waiting for the Xbox release of Zombie Chronicles I decided this would be the ideal chance to revisit the original maps in their original forms. One player, one attempt... How bad could it be?


Number four: Kino Der Toten

Still no double digits and I am starting to suspect I may not see them in this series I suspect I may be revisiting some of these just to see if I can do better.

I barely remembered Kino Der Toten and found myself looking all over for windows and wall weapons. I even forgot which way we usually went through the map. Although I did remember to buy Quick Revive this time.

Revisiting Zombie Chronicles: Shi No Numa

By Blackwalt - Posted on 23 May 2017

Game: Call of Duty World at War. Map: Shi No Numa

In an article yesterday I read about a Playstation player who missed playing the original Zombie Chronicles maps once he retired his PS3. This lead me to realize how lucky we were to have backwards compatibility on the Xbox One. Compatibility that included the three Call of Duty games that included the Original zombie maps. While waiting for the Xbox release of Zombie Chronicles I decided this would be the ideal chance to revisit the original maps in their original forms. One player, one attempt... How bad could it be?


Number three: Shi No Numa

Remember how I was talking about double digits? Shi No Numa was not that time. It's not looking good for Kino Der Toten either.

I remember Shi No Numa was never one of our favourite maps.

Despite this I did manage to buy a trench gun which I quickly replaced with a PPSh-41 and MG42 out of the Tickle Trunk. I got out to the Fisherman's Hut and for the first time in my revisitation of the original Zombie Chronicles maps managed to buy a perk. Juggernog.

Revisiting Zombie Chronicles: Zombie Verrückt

By Blackwalt - Posted on 22 May 2017

Game: Call of Duty World at War. Map: Zombie Verrückt

How bad could it be?


Number two: Zombie Verrückt

Okay. Technically 6 is better than 5. Just not much better. I think I should have rethought this one attempt deal and gone with a best of three. Too late now...

Strangely I discovered that according to the game this map is called Zombie Verrückt. For some reason I had always assumed it was just Verrückt but there it is in the screenshot: Zombie Verrückt. Huh, who knew?

Revisiting Zombie Chronicles: Nacht der Untoten

First up: Nacht der Untoten

I remember when World at War first came out and we all had to wait for Stormblade to finish the game before Zombie Mode could be unlocked and played. This was before the patch which unlocked it for all players. I also remember the sheer number of nights lost to our first experience with zombie mode.

The Orville Official Trailer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 May 2017

Good to know we no longer need to fear the banana

This is a Star Trek spoof coming from Seth Macfarlane. I was trying to remember what it was called when I was talking to Coxxorz about it.

All he cares about is the return of Adrianne Palicki to TV. He's missed her since she left Agents of Shield. Where she played Bobbi "Mockingbird" Morse.

I think this is as close as we will get to Galaxyquest on TV. The trailer was a lot better than I was expecting.

Sega Nite called on account of hockey playoffs

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 May 2017

Try again tomorrow

Seriously, come back on Thursday. We'll kill zombies then.

Another Black Ops 3 Zombie video

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 May 2017

I think... I sent the embed string to myself but can't see it from here

Is this the 8 Days of the Undead thing? I really don't care too much for two reasons:

  1. I can't see the video from here
  2. It isn't out on Xbox for another month


Alternate Zombie Sega Nite

By Blackwalt - Posted on 16 May 2017

Since most of us will be watching the NHL Playoffs instead tomorrow

Why not reschedule Sega Nite for tonight? Or even Thursday? Why not both!

As an added benefit this will keep Stormblade from ever finding us online...

Star Wars Battlefront NERF

By Blackwalt - Posted on 16 May 2017

Battlefront. NERF.

NERF Rival Star Wars Battlefront II Blaster And Face Mask Set Is Coming To Gamestop

Since I already have two of these in a non-branded version I am working under the assumption that I will not be allowed to buy a third. I post this so that Stormblade knows about it and can pre-order one.

Personally I am waiting for the NERF Rival Nemesis and Rolly has his eye on a NERF Rival Khaos.

HoC Random Gee Bees of the Day - 051417

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 May 2017

Not the Gee Bees you are thinking of, this Gee Bees

Although it is a Mother's Day gift for the Gee Bees you are thinking of. She discovered the Community Supported Pollination Project and wanted to be a part of it. Rolly, who is aware of the slow disappearance of our bee population, couldn't wait to purchase it as a Mother's Day gift.

Special thanks to the staff of the Gee Bees Honey Company who went out of their way to make this happen for Mother's Day. Particularly when working around my own "efforts" to organize it.

Technically it is Gees Bees (both plural) but that didn't work as well for the story so I took some liberties.
