Not buying one even if I find it in As-Is. Coxxorz though...

Still prefer the Vinter or our own original Denta.

Which we all knew was going to happen once I posted the last story

Despite EBGames best effort to disguise it, the full name of the game is Generation ZeroDespite EBGames best effort to disguise it, the full name of the game is Generation Zero

But let's face it, we all knew they had me once I saw cooperative open world. The giant robots are just a bonus. As are all the other sizes of robots.

Considering I just found out about this game today though, I may have made a rash, rushed decision. I will let you know.

I only got a chance to write this as I am waiting for the game to install.

Open world, coop, giant robots

Generation Zero

So it's out now for $39.99 ($5 more digitally) and I had no idea it was even coming.

It's not reviewing really well (43%) but is still capturing a lot of interest, shows a lot of potential, and the developers have put out good communication about future plans and fixes.

More info after the break.

Official Trailer: Dora and the Lost City of Gold

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 March 2019

You may say this is not of interest to us here. I might say that I already ordered my tickets.

    Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.

Xbox One patch for The Division 2 is only 42.3GB

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 March 2019

In the words of Stacey Pilgrim, "Oh that's not that bad."

Technically better than the threatened 48-52GB.

As of March 18th, 2019. May vary in the future.

Official release of Day Z announced for March 27th, 2019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 13 March 2019

Coxxorz keeps talking about Day Z. I think I'll let him go first...

    With the need to manage your character's basic survival requirements and the looming danger of permadeath restarting your progress, DayZ is an exceptionally immersive game. Despite not directly featuring any storytelling mechanics, the post-apocalyptic open world of DayZ presents a unique online sandbox where every decision adds up to create your own personal story. When all 60 players on a server engage in this completely unscripted survival scenario, the resulting emergent gameplay leads to intense player interactions — some action-packed and short, and some involving long, sophisticated roleplay with very real emotions that you remember long after.

Technically it is just leaving Game Preview status. More info available through Bohemia Interactive.

HoC Random Day 1 Patch of the... HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 09 March 2019

The Division 2 Day 1 patch has been revealed at a whopping 90GB!

Technically 88-92GB and, fortunately, only for the PS4 version.

Xbox One owners get away with a meager 48-52GB.


And since Ubisoft states that the final install size will be 88-92GB this means that PS4 owners are re-downloading the entire game. At what point do you stop calling it a patch?

More details available on the Ubisoft Support Site although not with much, if any, of an explanation for the massive download size:

    The Division 2 will be releasing on PC, Xbox One and PS4 alongside a Title Update 1 patch. This patch includes various bug fixes and improvements for the main game.

    Xbox One and PC:

    - If you purchased a physical copy of the game, begin by installing the game. You will then be prompted to download and install Title Update 1; expect a 48-52 GB download, depending on your region and preferred language. Whether you installed the game from a disc or bought it digitally, the final HDD install size, including the patch, will be 48-52 GB.

HoC Random Indo-Brazilian Cattle of the Day - 03082019

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 March 2019

Just Cause 4 has some awesome tether mods

Plus cows! I realize these aren't cows exactly but they are bovines (Indo-Brazilian Cattle maybe?) of some kind.

Who knew cows can fly!

My favourite part in the video is where the cow with just Boosters (that I had forgotten about) flies in from off screen.


Please stop talking.
