OCC2017 is Around the Corner

OCC2017 is around the corner
I've been working on Imotekh the storm lord since about mid January.

Certain events and weddings did cut into my progress time but that's OK it's always good see old friends.

Did a walk test today to ensure that I can walk with platforms. Because I'm too short to begin with.

Thankfully, it all worked out

HoC Random Orienterers of the Day - 043017

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 April 2017

UPDATE: Lucky 18! (Novice)
UPDATE UPDATE: Bruce Pit map with route added after the jump.

We signed up under the team name Herd of Cats

Strangely I was not involved in that decision.

We had fun finishing the Novice course in just under 52 minutes. Very fortunately Rolly C was there to keep Blackwalt from veering off onto his many suggested shortcuts.

Despite appearances I was quite happy to be there. I wasn't even complaining at the time (much).

HoC Random Armed Cat of the Day - 042817

By Blackwalt - Posted on 28 April 2017

Police called to reports of a cat up a tree... armed with a rifle

I know you think I am making this up but I am not.

In a Facebook post, the Newport Police Department said they warned the moggie:

    The post read: "Reports of an armed cat this morning were unfounded. The feline was contacted by our canine and was determined to be in possession of a non-lethal branch."

    "The cat was given a verbal warning for posing with what could be mistaken as an assault rifle while wearing poor camouflage attire."

And we can't forget this bit: Police reassured the public the cat was not armed nor dangerous.

Which is clearly wrong as all cats are dangerous!

Forza meets Whiplash

By Stormblade - Posted on 26 April 2017

Forza Horizon 3 has been the first racing game I have truly enjoyed since Burnout Paradise. Now, it would appear they're going to make like the last racing game I truly enjoyed before that: Whiplash.

If you don't know Whiplash, you are too young to be here.

Oh, and Hot Wheels!!!!

Oh yes please!

The only thing I am concerned about is the number of grenades we will face when Graybush makes us play it on Veteran ...

Hot Wheels coming to Forza Horizon 3

By Blackwalt - Posted on 26 April 2017

I know what Coxxorz will be playing May 9th

    Arriving on May 9, the expansion features six themed islands off the coast of Australia, all connected with Hot Wheels track, plus iconic Hot Wheels rides like Twin Mill, Rip Rod and the Bone Shaker. Best expansion idea ever.

They also seem to be going the other way around as well...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 26 April 2017

Sega Nite! Sega Nite! Sega Nite!

Hopefully the two week old reminder is enough and there is no longer a copy of Black Ops 2 stranded, lonely and forgotten, in Arundel.

Zombies. Tonight. Backwards compatible.

Be sure to install it and all of the additional DLC beforehand.

Today of all days is Moricerevek's Day

HoC already celebrated but there is some kind of official recognition today. Congrats to Moricerevek, condolences to his partner.

P.S.- although we all knew Moricerevek would make a good wife someday.

Fifty Years Ago Today

By Blackwalt - Posted on 16 April 2017

Nothing special happened

Yet I can't help but think the historians missed something.

Two Things:

  1. I will have you know I had this graphic done in advance. But only because yesterday counts.
  2. We owe you a co-op day.

Okay, fine. Technically it does have an option to sign up for Star Wars Newsletter.

I am not saying that it is worth it but cdkeys has Assassin's Creed Unity Digital Codes available for a whopping $2.99 CAD. That or a cup of coffee. Your call.


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