STAR WARS: Squadrons - I've drafted my squadron

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 September 2020

How about you?

On October 3rd, four and a half members of Herd of Cats may be gathering together (Covid Safe!) in an undisclosed location to enjoy the release of Star Wars: Squadrons. Side undecided.

While we do plan on enjoying the co-operative mode, if some of you managed to join us virtually we would be more than willing to try some of the Dogfight and Fleet Battle modes. Maybe.

I never thought I would say this ...

Turns out that Stormblade could be an effective assassin

Oh the hours (days ... months ...) lost to this

Since downgrading my Hackintosh to Windows 10, I decided I could at least enjoy some PC gaming (the only thing this machine is really now any good for). I signed up for GOG and one of the sign up perks was some game deals. I bought Witcher 3 (yes, again) and also noticed that for $13 I could get Warcraft I and II! Nostalgia city! Read more

How come I am only just hearing about this?

By Stormblade - Posted on 11 September 2020

And why are we not playing it??

EDIT: And it's on GamePass!!!

$599 CDN is the Final Answer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 10 September 2020

Less than a direct currency exchange, more than Stormblade's jar of pennies

Xbox Canada Tweeted the Canadian price today.

And $499 USD is the answer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 09 September 2020

Start saving now...

So $659 CAD? With $699 CAD at EBGames?

Oh yeah, November 10th, 2020, is the date.

Now I have to go count that jar of pennies Stormblade left when he moved out.

Xbox Series S no longer a rumour

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 September 2020

The smaller Next Generation Xbox Series Console is officially announced

UPDATE: promo video added after the break.

Xbox Series S | Next-gen performance in the ˢᵐᵃˡˡᵉˢᵗ Xbox ever. $299 USD (ERP).

No optical drive in this version, so backwards compatibility from physical discs will not be a thing.

Unfortunately the announced $299 USD price means that the rumoured $599 USD Xbox Series X price is probably accurate. Hopefully it isn't more than that. (Although I am also reading that $499 USD is a strong possibility).
