Zelda: Breath of the Wild is supposed to be quite good

By Blackwalt - Posted on 03 March 2017

I wonder if Rolly will loan me his Wii U?

“Possibly the Best Game Ever Made”.

Whoopsie. Bolivia doesn't like being the bad guys

Ghost Recon Wildlands creates a diplomatic incident between Bolivia and France

Verbatim from Reuters:

    The Bolivian government has filed a formal complaint with the French embassy about a video game produced by a French company that portrays the South American country as an area controlled by drug traffickers, authorities said.

Oscar Morales

I received a message from my buddy Betty Nukem this morning that I look like Oscar Morales from the Jurassic park game.
Yeah it is uncanny :p

To much of this is familiar.

For those of us who have been obsessed with SW: Battlefront over the past few weeks, much of this will be very funny.

Some of it will hit a little too close to home to be funny.

HoC Random TV Repair of the Day - 021117

By Blackwalt - Posted on 11 February 2017

The cheap TV I picked up from Graybush is starting to add up...

So you guys probably don't remember when I picked up the Best LAN Swag ever from Moricerevek. Buried in that story I mentioned how the $2.55 TV from Graybush was developing issues.

My original repair job on the 37" LG cost me a $2.55 capacitor and a little bit of disassembly and soldering time.

This time I had to replace three different parts. Three! Each one of them costing $1.75. Each! $5.93 total! (and some additional disassembly and soldering).


If this gets much worse I am going to have to start billing some of this back to Graybush!

Three turkeys wandered through my back yard in Arundel this morning.

After careful consideration (for a half-second) I named them Blackwalt, Coxxorz and Graybush.

The Ghosts are a legendary US Elite Special Operations team. Tasked to go behind enemy lines in Bolivia, South America. Their goal: to create chaos that will destabilize and eventually break the alliance between the Santa Bianca cartel and the corrupted Bolivian government.

This. Is. Not. Their. Story.

The Herd of Cats is a mundane, mostly Canadian, lesser known, XBox Live clan. Tasked to go into Blackwalt’s basement in Ottawa, Canada. Their goal: to virtually split into four man tactical teams and randomly create chaos within a virtual recreation of Bolivia, South America.

This. Is. Their. Story.

These. Are. The. Details.

  • MoriceRevek’s Bachelor LAN
  • Blackwalt’s Basement
  • March 18, 2017 (after much discussion)
  • 14:00 hours
  • Xbox One. Xbox Live
  • A copy of Ghost Recon Wildlands (release date March 7, 2017)
  • 4-player cooperative (?) teams – randomly assigned
  • BYO... booze, headsets, Xbox One, Monitor/TV, Xbox Live membership, copy of Ghost Recon Wildlands, controllers, required cables, etc

A PDF version of this invite should appear in your email at some point.
The possibility of more details in the future does exist.


This Valentine's Day – Timing is Everything

Sniper Elite 4 Launch Trailer

Not this Valentine's Day for me though. For some reason Amazon isn't shipping my copy of Sniper Elite 4 until February 17th. With an arrival date of February 21st.

Wait... isn't that an entire week after it's release date? Why yes. Yes it is. Several discussions with Amazon customer service has yet to change anything.

Yes I pre-ordered my copy despite my ban on pre-ordering. This is a Rebellion game and since our foray into Zombie Army Trilogy I figure we owe them some loyalty. Anything I can do to pump up their numbers I am going to do.

PS- Pssst! Rebellion? Any time for Zombie Army Trilogy 2.

And not surprisingly, today is Wednesday. See you online

Star Wars Battlefront again but we are changing things up this week by inviting Q-Bert.

Based totally on the comment posted on this story.

And this is exactly what it felt like by the way...

Character customization in Ghost Recon Wildlands

By Blackwalt - Posted on 29 January 2017

And weapon customization as well which begs the question, can I attach an axe to my shotgun?

All I really need is female avatars and shotguns. Everything else is gravy. Although I would be happy playing as Angelina Jolie again.

HoC Random MVPs of the Day - 012617

Star Wars Battlefront MVPs on Sega Nite (Yesterday)

So last night there were actually four HoC members playing in Star Wars Battlefront for the second week in a row.

When the above screen came up at the end of the round with Blackwalt (me!) as MVP of the round we were all a equally impressed as we were surprised. I think I was the most surprised of all.

Still I was feeling pretty good about my Star Wars Battlefront prowess.

And then, Graybush...


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.
