How do they make No Man's Sky look so appealing?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 July 2018

Now with four player coop. Available July 24th on Xbox One

My biggest issue is the $69.99 price for a two year old PS4 game. Even with the patches I am thinking this should be launching at a lower price point. The PS4 version, new, is $29.99 at Amazon right now ($14.99 CAD used at EBGames). That $40 price differential is a little much to take. And let's remember that it is No Man's Sky.

The four player base building looks good but I was wowed by the four player star fighter formation flying. Which is what the other three HoC members would be doing. I would be busy trying not to crash into things. Like the planet!

I'm not coming out of this box until you fix the AC!

As always, the box the fan came in is more fun than the fan itselfAs always, the box the fan came in is more fun than the fan itself

I expect he will only hold out until the next food can is opened...

How many people does it take to change a light bulb?

The City of Ottawa and Hydro Ottawa just reached the halfway point of LED streetlight replacement. Right across from Herd of Cats HQ. So we went and took pictures and even spoke to the Mayor.

This is light number 29,000 (of, one would assume, 58,000 total). Two more years before the project is finished.

More exciting pictures after the break...

Strange Brigade pre-orders now available in Canada

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 May 2018

EBGames now carrying the Collector's Edition pre-order

When Rebellion sent me a PRE-ORDER EDITIONS EXPLAINED! email explaining how to pre-order different versions of Strange Brigade it turned out that none of the options were available yet in Canada.

It turns out that it was only a matter of time. And that time is now. You can pre-order at EBGames Canada as I proved to myself this past Monday.

Just letting you know that if you want to build your own Zeppelin on August 28th that option is now available.

Woohoo. Another Battlefield game.

Apparently the female characters in the game are causing quite a stink. All I can say is dibs.

Games with Gold: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 May 2018

This is one Games with Gold that you don't want to miss

I have never been a huge Metal Gear Solid fan so I was as surprised as anyone at the sheer amount of hours I put into Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

When I discovered Metal Gear Survive and it's four player coop zombies I had issues with the controls. Hoping to get some assistance with the non-standard controls I picked up The Phantom Pain used for $20. Easily the best gaming purchase on my Xbox One this year. I can't explain how much of Coxxorz's time I wasted talking about this game.

More than any previous Games with Gold this is one you need to try. Stealth, weapons, mechs, a dog, a horse, a bikini clad sniper (female fortunately), and even zombie type things. Rated 90% at GameRankings.

The best recommendation I can give is that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the single player version of what I expected Ghost Recon Wildlands to be.


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


Please stop talking.
