Activision now patenting pay to win...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 October 2017

Update: Massive fact checking as I had a major fact wrong. Fixed.

You don't need to watch the Youtube video, I just couldn't come up with a better graphic...

Apparently Activision has submitted a patent which suggests matching weak players against strong players intentionally to help convince them to purchase microtransactions. You know, the usual pay to win online scum and villainy but now patented.

Revek turned 50

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 04 October 2017

So last Saturday I turned 50, and Stormblade, Blackwalt, Q-Bert were there with their families. Fun times were had.

Stormblade gave me a dictionary and mad lib pads and Q-Bert gave me a reddit t-shirt.
Blackwalt.... Well.... Let's put it this way. The card on top of the bag that he gave me was addressed to "Princess Revek". Foreshadowing I think. As you can see from the picture, it was a collection of DC super-hero figurines, their associated story book, hotwheel car and pezz dispencer.

Rebellion has been short listed for two categories:

  1. Best Audio - Sniper Elite 4

Vote here if you want.

Assassin's Creed Origins gets a limited edition headset

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 September 2017

Stormblade just took out a second mortgage...

    The cans in question are the Assassin’s Creed Origins Utopia by Tournaire handcrafted headphones, created through the combined talents of a 3D artist, an art caster, and a goldsmith, all of whom "worked together with the [Tournaire] jeweler for several months." The headphones—aural artwork, really—are made exclusively in France, and will feature an average weight of 150 grams of 18k gold per set. Only ten will be released to the public, and they will sell for €50,000 each, which works out to just shy of $60,000.

Only $60,000.

For the rest of you that are only casual fans you can pickup the slightly cheaper Assassin's Creed Origins: Listen Wireless.

Destiny 2 launches today. Japan helps you celebrate with the following launch trailer

Thanks Japan.

Stormblade is already warming up his dance moves for the next HoC LAN Party. A restraining order against Q-Bert is in the works.

Here is a link to HoC Dancing in the original Destiny. Stormblade is missing but I put his dancing links in the above paragraph.

Note: I have not picked up a copy of Destiny 2. Is this something we are doing? I am trying to stretch my gaming budget across this Autumn and it is not going well...

Do You Even Game Bro: Dead Alliance Review

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 September 2017

We may have dodged a bullet not picking up Dead Alliance on launch

We did talk about Dead Alliance on Herd of Cats but I am glad we waited to pick it up. Such a good idea for combining zombies and multiplayer battles. Too bad it didn't come to fruition.

OMG! The price for Assassin's Creed Unity has now jumped to $4.99 CAD on Cdkeys.


If you are interested in the newly released Middle-Earth: Shadow of War but don't want to jump in at $79.99 You can see where it all started with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (Standard Disc Version) for $11.99 at the Microsoft Store.
Now you too can follow the yellow brick road to platform 9¾ while trying to roll a critical hit.


I wish someone looked at me the way you look at your rocket launcher.
