So. Funny story.
Since Star Wars Battlefront's release in November of 2015 it has been mentioned on HerdofCats many times. A list is included after the jump. A significant number of these have been by Stormblade lamenting that HoC has not jumped on the Star Wars band wagon and joined him online. We still haven't. Coxxorz' even purchased a copy at $29.99 during a summer sale and still has it safely stored in the shrink wrap.
My primary issue was the initial cost of Star Wars Battlefront. $79.99 for the game and $69.99 for the Season Pass. Expensive enough even if the internet hadn't exploded over the lack of content in the initial game release.
Then along came Graybush, late on a Friday night (yesterday) while in the middle of a round of Zombie Army Trilogy.
Graybush and Blackwalt return to Call of Duty Ghosts: Extinction
We didn't remember how to play.
Thursday night Graybush kept me up late playing Ghosts while I simultaneously watched the World Junior Hockey Gold Medal game. Now I can usually pull myself away from gaming or from watching hockey to go to bed on time but it appears I can not pull myself away from both at the same time.
We had a moment during a failed, glitched challenge that was, well, close...
I keep hearing this from everywhere...
... yet I still haven't been tempted to buy Titanfall 2. I haven't bought Battlefield One either and I do own Titanfall 1.
But still not tempted.
to explore strange new worlds and perhaps glitch all over them
Okay, the glitch comment is funny but I don't want you to think this game is only glitches. It is just fair warning that this is a Game Preview game. I am still enjoying it but I have found issues. My biggest is with vehicles and joining them together in a train. Often (very often) one of the cars glitches and start jumping in place. It seems like one of the tires gets stuck in the ground and won't let go. Next to impossible to use after that and quickly gets abandoned. Along with whatever valuables it may be carrying. Future archeologists will surely puzzle over the prolific abandonment of Astroneer vehicles all over (mostly under) the planets I have settled.
But I am still playing this game and still enjoying it. This Star Log is about a funny moment I experienced with RollyC. Did I happen to mention that this game supports coop? Four player coop in fact.
I am almost afraid to post anything nowadays as I am afraid it will disappear in the site change over. But this needed to be shared.
Coming out of this comment series and the whole site change situation.
The sad part is with Q-Bert as Elsa and Stormblade as Anna that leaves me and Moricerevek fighting over Olaf the snowman or Sven the reindeer.
There is an additional delay in the site change over
Stormblade is in an discussion with Q-Bert about saving all the stories in a migration versus a complete rebuild.
More work involved but as long as I am not that one doing it I am all for it.
Of course, the little I have already done may end up being sacrificed and that just makes me sad...
Did anyone else get that? Sweet? ... ugh, I'm so old.
I would blame Q-Bert if it totally wasn't my fault
The change over to the new site is going slowly. This slowness is caused entirely by my laziness. Not Q-Bert as you would obviously suspect.
Unfortunately my laziness factor is not decreasing...
Hopefully something will happen eventually
I never knew I needed this.... Until I saw it.
Los Angeles traffic jam.
Road rage, anyone?
