Planes, Trains, and Automobiles... and boats.

HoC Random Mobile Game of the Day - 08212017

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 August 2017

It is the perfect HoC game as it involves yelling at each other

RollyC discovered this game at his Game Changers Summer Camp and forced his parental units to download and play it. Fun was had.

2-4 players. Cooperative. In the same room only (well... within yelling range).

More info at the Official Game Page and a trailer is provided after the break.

IKEA instructions for Game of Thrones Night Watch cloaks

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 August 2017

Official instructions!

Once the Game of Thrones costume designers let leak that they had used IKEA carpets for the Night Watch cloaks it was only a matter of time before IKEA noticed. IKEA Norway was first, releasing the above IKEA instructions for makiing your own Game of Thrones Night Watch cloak. Just like Jon Snow wears on the show.

You can read more details at the Daily Mail.

They have the IKEA name listed as Vinter which doesn't exist on the site. I did find two alternatives which match in different ways.

I can't help but think that yes is the wrong answer here

For our Tenth #2: Ten Hours of Nyan Cat

Only the strong can watch it all

I am not one of the strong...

So... for our Tenth... Ten Cats

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 August 2017

It's an (unrelated) comic strip...

It's also video game related as they mention Call of Duty right there in the last panel between shrimp and chicken.

HoC Random Upcoming Anniversary of the Decade - 08132017

By Blackwalt - Posted on 13 August 2017

August 14, 2007 was an ignominious day

So tomorrow is August 14. 2017. And at some point last week I remembered that it will be the Tenth Anniversary of This did not spur me into planning anything. I guess this means I will be counting on you guys for content tomorrow.

Hello? Anyone? Damn crickets.

So yeah, anyway... I haven't done or planned anything other than remembering that it is tomorrow. Seems almost appropriate somehow.

Whoot! Yay! I guess...

    Microsoft has been working on new Xbox avatars for quite a while, having teased them several months ago. They're nearly ready for prime time as part of the Fall Creators Update for Xbox One, and we got an early look.

Collectors Edition unveiled for Call of Duty: WWII

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 August 2017

Complete with Commemorative Bronze Statue

We here at HoC are busy arguing between this, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and Crackdown 3. Getting a little too close to call. Bad enough with just the standard editions. All the special, collectors, valor, limited, super deluxe versions just complicate things even further.

Contents of the two different Valor editions of Call of Duty: WWII are listed after the break.

HoC Twitch Experiment: Black Ops III kind of a fail

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 July 2017

It turns out there may have been a reason.

Two out of four HoC members would not join the Party Chat stream. One refused and one didn't want to figure it out (too busy killing zombies). The third connected before I even finished asking. So SeanMCR and I chatted to the world (and sometimes empty air when chatting with the other two).
