Games with Gold #2 June 2016: The Crew

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 June 2016

I can't say enough about this game. If you have the slightest interest in driving games you should be trying this

Supports four-player co-op as you drive around a massive re-creation of the US. Drive through New York, Colorado, the Grand Canyon.

I have so much to say I don't know where to start! Some totally random thoughts after the original launch trailer!

Solving an Xbox One controller problem

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 June 2016

A simple solution to a simple problem

So today Rolly is planning a sleep over at a friend's. The entire reason behind the sleep over is to play Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 on his friend's Xbox One. All good except Rolly needs to take an Xbox One controller for himself. Technically I only have one good controller for my Xbox One. The one I use - an Xbox One Special Edition Covert Forces (above right in the photo).

Forza Horizon 3 at E3

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 June 2016

All the awesome games at E3 and the one I am most interested in is...

I know! I was surprised too!

    You’re in charge of the Horizon Festival. Customize everything, hire and fire your friends, and explore Australia in over 350 of the world’s greatest cars. Make your Horizon the ultimate celebration of cars, music, and freedom of the open road. How you get there is up to you.

Four player co-op campaign! Now all we need is for Graybush to start playing racing games...

Sniper Elite 4 Gameplay

By Stormblade - Posted on 16 June 2016

Outside XBox again (I like these guys, so sue me) playing pretty much like I would. Actually, I would probably be a little more stealthy.

OXBOX plays For Honor

I am really looking forward to this one. The gameplay looks intense and the fighting more interactive than standard button mashing.

This looks awesome!

OMG! WTF! SeanMCR is online!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 June 2016

The question is, is he still on fire?

Welcome back! But please no more rage quitting. There's nothing left to burn.

This is how it will work with 4 player co-op.

At least, it's how it would work with 4 players working co-operatively. We will never ... and I do mean NEVER ... accomplish this.

So yeah, DOOM came out

You should be interested...

On the other hand, instead of jumping in full price you could wait until the price drops to a reasonable amount. Like Rainbow Six Siege. Coxxorz and I waited until it dropped to $29.99 which coincidentally was close to six months.

Considering the sheer amount of internal microtransations built in to Rainbow Six Siege I was happy I didn't buy it at full price. I would have been more pissed of than I am.

Note: This isn't abuse or sarcasm. This is content.

Full map reveal: Ghost Recon Wildlands!

Second thoughts about Ghost Recon Wildlands disappeared when I started enjoying Rainbow Six: Siege

HoC Random Sacrifice of the Day - 06102016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 10 June 2016

Rolly C and Blackwalt play Goat Simulator

I would just like to state for the record that I believe Rolly C should be presenting a better role model to me. Leading me down the path of ritual sacrifice is not representative of proper life choices.

Also for the record, only one human was sacrificed for the achievement... and four goats. Since we were playing as goats, technically, that may have been worse.

Some Overwatch Fun

By Akuf - Posted on 09 June 2016

I wish I had a video of this.

I was playing as Reinhardt (naturally)

He has an ability where he can charge and take everyone in his path.

So, I used this ability when I saw a bunch of my enemies lined up.

I charged caught four players and flew right of a cliff...

If that is not an HoC moment I don't know what is.

Oh and I got play of the game.


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


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).


Did Princess Leia just kill me?
