IKEA instructions for Game of Thrones Night Watch cloaks

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 August 2017

Official instructions!

Once the Game of Thrones costume designers let leak that they had used IKEA carpets for the Night Watch cloaks it was only a matter of time before IKEA noticed. IKEA Norway was first, releasing the above IKEA instructions for makiing your own Game of Thrones Night Watch cloak. Just like Jon Snow wears on the show.

You can read more details at the Daily Mail.

They have the IKEA name listed as Vinter which doesn't exist on the Ikea.ca site. I did find two alternatives which match in different ways.

The fine folks at Rooster Teeth bring us another episode of their "In Real Life" series. Would a Fortnite style wooden fort hold up against the zombie horde?

Watch and find out...

For our Tenth #3: Dr. Seuss

I can't help but think that yes is the wrong answer here

For our Tenth #2: Ten Hours of Nyan Cat

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 August 2017

Only the strong can watch it all

I am not one of the strong...

So... for our Tenth... Ten Cats

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 August 2017

It's an (unrelated) comic strip...

It's also video game related as they mention Call of Duty right there in the last panel between shrimp and chicken.

HoC Random Upcoming Anniversary of the Decade - 08132017

By Blackwalt - Posted on 13 August 2017

August 14, 2007 was an ignominious day

So tomorrow is August 14. 2017. And at some point last week I remembered that it will be the Tenth Anniversary of HerdofCats.ca. This did not spur me into planning anything. I guess this means I will be counting on you guys for content tomorrow.

Hello? Anyone? Damn crickets.

So yeah, anyway... I haven't done or planned anything other than remembering that it is tomorrow. Seems almost appropriate somehow.

Windows Central: First look at the new Xbox Avatars

By Blackwalt - Posted on 13 August 2017

Whoot! Yay! I guess...

    Microsoft has been working on new Xbox avatars for quite a while, having teased them several months ago. They're nearly ready for prime time as part of the Fall Creators Update for Xbox One, and we got an early look.

Video after the break.

I also captured video but for some reason I appreciate the picture more.

Collectors Edition unveiled for Call of Duty: WWII

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 August 2017

Complete with Commemorative Bronze Statue

We here at HoC are busy arguing between this, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and Crackdown 3. Getting a little too close to call. Bad enough with just the standard editions. All the special, collectors, valor, limited, super deluxe versions just complicate things even further.

Contents of the two different Valor editions of Call of Duty: WWII are listed after the break.

HoC Twitch Experiment: Black Ops III kind of a fail

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 July 2017

It turns out there may have been a reason.

Two out of four HoC members would not join the Party Chat stream. One refused and one didn't want to figure it out (too busy killing zombies). The third connected before I even finished asking. So SeanMCR and I chatted to the world (and sometimes empty air when chatting with the other two).

First Look: Call Of Duty World War II's Zombie Mode

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 July 2017

Official Nazi Zombies reveal trailer

    Sledgehammer Games delivers an original and terrifying new co-op survival experience in Call of Duty®: WWII Nazi Zombies.

This village holds a shadowy secret key to an unimaginable and monstrous power. Nothing is as it seems in this zombies horror, as a dark and sinister plot unfolds to unleash an invincible Nazi army of the dead.

    A new horror rises on November 3.

HoC Sega Nite Twitch Experiment ran for two hours

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 July 2017

And worse, it's archived for your amusement

There were no issues other than sarcasm and bad play. Neither of us noted any lag issues. There was, obviously, a time delay in the broadcast. Oddly, my time delay was less than Pwn Call's.

Coxxorz/Pwn Call was required to download the Twitch App on his Xbox One but we think this was just Twitch self propagating. We think the only required step is to go into your party chat window and approve Broadcast streaming. Working this out lead to ten minutes of me talking to myself. Online.

We had a pick on Stormblade moment 12 minutes in. It was sadly disappointing as neither of us had prepared for it. You would think we could just whip this stuff off but apparently we need to work at it.


The Strange Brigade - Gentleman Explorer Character Pack is available FREE for a limited time.


Please stop talking.
