Just in time for this week's Sega Nite!

First Black Ops. Then World at War. Now Black Ops II. What's next? Black Ops 3?

You know what this means.

Yup. More Zombies!!!!

Amazon shipping fail

By Blackwalt - Posted on 28 March 2017

Fortunately this order wasn't for me...

...and it was only two weeks late.

Too be fair this is most likely Canada Post's fault.

However, my original purchase of this order was February 11th. The product was released March 7th. It shipped March 23rd (two weeks after). It arrived on the 28th.

This is today by the way...

Tales from the Dysclexic Peot

By MauriceRevek - Posted on 08 March 2017

The setting. Bedtime stories with step-daughter. The book. Disney's Never Girls.

The original text:

"Maybe I'll just pop into the kitchen and make some scones."

What came out:

"Maybe I'll just poop into the kitchen and make some scones."

She was holding a poop emoji stuffy in her arms as I said it. Much laughter at my expense ensued.

No Good Deed - Deadpool 2 Teaser

With just a little too much Ryan Reynolds...

Some things should be left to the imagination. Not mine though, maybe Moricerevek's.

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

I wonder if Rolly will loan me his Wii U?

Read more at eTeknix who talk about Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the following understated terms:

“Possibly the Best Game Ever Made”.

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.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Revek WildLAN - March 18th, 2017

By Blackwalt - Posted on 11 February 2017

2017-03-18 14:00


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.



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.


To Graybush and his XM-52
