Herd of Chris PSA: Q-Bert pressed the button

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 November 2016

So the site was down for a couple of hours and there may be some aftermath

And it is totally Q-Bert's fault:

    I had to upgrade KC's operating system to Ubuntu 16.04 because of security upgrades. That forced PHP7 and removed PHP5.4 automatically. HoC is Drupal 6. Drupal 6 doesn't run with PHP7. So, HoC got pooched and Moricerevek reported it inside of 10 mins, which shows you how much he relies on HoC for his personal view of the world.

So what you see now is a temporary fix but we have a new site under construction and Q-Bert will switch it over if I ever get around to building it.

Just wanted you to know why I am updating even less than normal.

PS- 15 years for Halo. Watch Dogs 2 is out. Random Stormblade abuse. Black Friday! Cats are funny.

I am pretty sure this is Graybush...

Not sure if he is looking for the super moon, hunting zombies, or just another Tuesday.

Herd of Cats: now a club on Xbox Live

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 November 2016

Apparently the Xbox Holiday Update added clubs to Xbox Live

I discovered this when I found Stormblade spamming my mailbox with "where is the HoC Club? Where? Where? Where?"

I showed him though. No HoC club for him! "Herd of Cats" however? There may be one of those.

HoC Random Question: Call of Duty Infinite Warfare

By Blackwalt - Posted on 04 November 2016

I have been meaning to ask and since it is launching today for early purchasers...

Is anyone planning on buying this years Call of Duty iteration?

To be honest, even with a new Zombie Mode, it fell off my list. Since we have barely played Black Ops 3's new zombie maps is it worth picking up this year's version?

Let me know in the comments or with direct verbal or text abuse. I do so love hearing from you guys.

My Amazon Prime 20% off is only good for two weeks so there is a deadline on this.

The second Wonder Woman trailer just arrived

Owen Grady reporting for duty

Missing from the photo is a stuffed dinosaur which accompanied him while trick or treatingMissing from the photo is a stuffed dinosaur which accompanied him while trick or treating

With Rolly's fascination with the Lego Jurassic World video game, Jurassic World Lego, and the Jurassic World movie it should have been no surprise who he picked for his 2016 Halloween costume. He resisted all attempts to add stubble with makeup and had little success growing his own the week before Halloween.

See Owen Grady joined by Dr. Ellie Sattler and Dr. Alan Grant after the jump.

The Dyslexic Nightmare

I dreamt last night that I could no longer remember how to spell any words in French. At least I still have English.

Assassin's Creed!!

By Stormblade - Posted on 02 November 2016

So, the Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection is being released soon (Nov 15) on XBox One and that other thing from Sony. It will be remastered for next-gen consoles (i.e. pretty). It will include all single-player content from AC II, AC: Brotherhood and AC: Revelations, but none of the multiplayer. It will be CAD $80. Gulp.

HoC Random Pumpkins of the Day - 10312016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 October 2016

The HoC 2016 Edition Pumpkins. Our contribution anyway, I assume you guys have some as well.

So very poorly lit and photographed we have (top to bottom) Pokeball, Suicide Squad, and a cat. You will have to guess which pumpkin belongs to whom. I carved them all but each family member picks their own theme/pattern.

See more poorly photographed pumpkins by clicking on the Read more below.

For authenticity he painted the landscape himself. The perm, however, is not his real hair...

SHOCKTOBER! Xbox One Halloween sale!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 October 2016

All zombies all the time!

Except some of these games don't have Zombies. Do your best anyway.

Games of interest:

And there are many others that you can peruse on Xbox.com or check out directly from your Xbox One dashboard.

I am thinking it is finally time to pick up State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition which I was avoiding due to it's single player nature.

HoC Random Poster of the Day - 10292016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 29 October 2016

I can't help but think he phoned this in

This past weekend we had a 4-player LAN coop day for Vermintide. Before the event I sent an admittedly late request to our Head Designer for a poster.

I did say to do nothing major. I guess I got what I deserved for setting the bar so low.

Sadly, not quite as sarcastic as his previous work.


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


I wish someone looked at me the way you look at your rocket launcher.


To Graybush and his XM-52 (Black Ops 3 Zombies):.
