Back to normal

By SeanmcR6 - Posted on 22 November 2015

Now that the lan party has happened and everyone has finally played the (lame) campaign mode, we can get back to our regularly scheduled game mode...ZOMBIES!

Graybush, Stormblade and myself took The Giant. What's become my favourite version of Der Riese.

A couple warm up matches, then a short break for food n such and we started in earnest.

New HoC record for this version of the map! 31

Who are you people?

By Stormblade - Posted on 19 November 2015

I've been playing Star Wars Battlefront, on my own, for the past few days. I have been running around Hoth, Tatooine and Endor, fighting off Stormtroopers, AT-STs and drones. I have flown X-Wings, snowspeeders and speeder bikes. I have wrapped tow cables around AT-ATs and bring them down. I have fought Darth Vader (and lost, obviously).

And where the HECK are ALL OF YOU?!? This is Battlefield meets Star Wars. This game was MADE for HoC.

Who are you people?!?

Please support Activision...

Please help support independent developers! They need your help and understanding as they struggle to keep up with the relentless and savage demands of the gaming community. Take the challenge system in their new Black Ops 3 game. While it is the third iteration of said challenge system, we cannot expect it to be error free. That would be selfish. Read more

Halloween 2015

As I'm hard at work on Nomura's Batman for OPX2015, I didn't have time to make anything extravagant for Halloween this year. So, was dared to Pierce's Juggerknob (aka pillow fight man) from the show community.

Splatoon Weapon of the Week

By RocketRoland - Posted on 19 October 2015

Hello, I am RollyC and I am going to be covering the gold dynamo roller today.

The gold dynamo roller has a lot of range. In fact it has the highest range of any roller at a astounding 72 range. Its other stats are the lowest of any roller at 30 ink speed and 20 handling.

The sub weapon is a splat bomb. A splat bomb is a pyramid shaped explosive which operates on a timer mechanism. It only explodes on the ground and will not detonate in midair. The special is inkstrike which causes a tornado of ink wherever it hits.

You have to be at least level 20 to buy it and it costs 25000 gold.

*cough*

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 1

By Stormblade - Posted on 06 October 2015


No. 1 - Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

TaDa! I know, I know, you’re all surprised. Me choosing an Assassin’s Creed game as my number 1 most anticipated game. Although it is rather obvious, it wasn’t necessarily a slam dunk. Assassin’s Creed: Unity was a major disappointment. Oh, I played it all the way through and enjoyed it for the most part. Unfortunately, I had HIGHLY anticipated it, especially after loving Black Flag. AC Unity was so broken at launch it was unplayable. Also, the idea of cooperative assassins missions just never resounded with me (and I was not alone). My son got it for me for Christmas 2013 and I didn’t actually play it until this past Spring.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - honourable mentions

By Stormblade - Posted on 05 October 2015

Honourable Mentions

I decided to enhance the suspense of revealing the No. 1 pick by listing some games that didn’t make my list, but will probably end up in my collection anyway. Of course, the only way you don’t know what the No. 1 game is would be if a) you don’t know anything about me at all and b) did not pay attention to the game box covers in the banner. Whatever, going for suspense anyway.

There are so many games coming out in the near future, it’s easy to feel like a kid in a … er … ebgames shop. Here’s four that just fell short of my list.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 2

By Stormblade - Posted on 04 October 2015


No. 2 - Star Wars: Battlefront

I have not been this excited about a Star Wars games since ... oh man ... since X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter. That was 18 freaking years ago!! (pauses to contemplate old age...).

That being said, it was a great game. It felt like you were in the Star Wars universe. Or at least the part of it I enjoyed. I have never been that keen on being a Jedi. It was always the epic battles that I thought were cool.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 3

By Stormblade - Posted on 03 October 2015


No. 3 - Rainbow Six Siege

In a simpler time when cooperative video games were fun and the Herd of Cats always got along, some of the most fun we had playing together was playing Rainbow Six Vegas. Okay, it's possible we didn't always get along, but we really did have fun playing Rainbow Six Vegas.

In fact, if you look through the Lexicon of Death, many of the phrases listed there came from our days playing R6V. This was during the heady days of the initial CoD games, which were the cause of one of the most dangerous mistakes in R6V. This was to 'mistakingly' throw a grenade when trying to crouch. The reason this was a problem was in Rainbow Six, friendly fire was on. One had to pay attention for single word phrases like 'crap!', 'dammit!', or 'oops!' and then one had to run. Fast. The fact that we were able to get anywhere in this game with friendly fire on is still amazing to me today.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 4

By Stormblade - Posted on 02 October 2015


No. 4 - Call of Duty: Black Ops III

There is only one reason Call of Duty: Black Ops III is on this list. It's been a long time since I have been a fan of multiplayer in the Call of Duty franchise, so that is certainly not the reason I am anticipating this game. I am also not particularly interested in the single player mission, although I will probably play it through.

No, there is only one word to describe why I am anticipating this game and why it ends up number 4 on my list. That word is: Zombies. Treyarch's take on zombie multiplayer has no equal. Ever since it first appeared in Call of Duty: World at War, the zombie maps have been the reason that I have remained loyal to the Call of Duty franchise.

This will be Treyarch's first attempt at zombie mode on the Xbox One and it's exciting. Bringing in new maps with new characters as well as reintroducing old maps with our favourite Nazi Zombie hunting quartet, elevates this title from a resounding ‘Meh’ to an eagerly anticipated game in my eyes.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 5

By Stormblade - Posted on 01 October 2015

There are a bunch of games coming out for the Xbox One over the next few months that will hopefully rid us of the drama of the last couple of weeks. It will be nice to finally have games available to us that we can play together and that don't suck. I'm really hopeful on the ‘don't suck’ part.

I decided to make a list of the games that I am most anticipating so that everyone else knows where I stand. I hope some of these games will also appeal to other clan members, but these are games I will play anyway no matter what the rest of you do.

Without further ado, on to number 5:

COXXORZ RANDOM XBONE DEAL OF THE DAY

iTunes Store is selling Call of Duty: Zombies for just $1.99 ($2.79 CDN?)

HOC RANDOM XBOX ONE DEAL OF THE DAY

The EA Publisher Sale has TitanFall 2 on sale for $40 in the Xbox Marketplace (normally $99). If you prefer more pickup the Titanfall 2/Battlefield 1 Deluxe Bundle for $56.10 (normally $169.99). So tempted but no (not yet).
