Star Wars Battlefront NERF

Battlefront. NERF.

NERF Rival Star Wars Battlefront II Blaster And Face Mask Set Is Coming To Gamestop

Since I already have two of these in a non-branded version I am working under the assumption that I will not be allowed to buy a third. I post this so that Stormblade knows about it and can pre-order one.

Personally I am waiting for the NERF Rival Nemesis and Rolly has his eye on a NERF Rival Khaos.

HoC Random Gee Bees of the Day - 051417

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 May 2017

Not the Gee Bees you are thinking of, this Gee Bees

Although it is a Mother's Day gift for the Gee Bees you are thinking of. She discovered the Community Supported Pollination Project and wanted to be a part of it. Rolly, who is aware of the slow disappearance of our bee population, couldn't wait to purchase it as a Mother's Day gift.

Special thanks to the staff of the Gee Bees Honey Company who went out of their way to make this happen for Mother's Day. Particularly when working around my own "efforts" to organize it.

Technically it is Gees Bees (both plural) but that didn't work as well for the story so I took some liberties.

I ran so far away ... I couldn't get away

Best comment from the YouTube page:

I honestly feel bad for Infinity Ward because this DLC is getting more hype than the entirety of IW ever got - bulldog5215219

Best comment from an HoC member:

Just saw an ad on my phone for the remastered zombie maps. Damn PlayStation. - Coxxorz

PS- The song is a cover (by Hidden Citizens) of Flock of Seagulls' I Ran. You can listen to a full version on YouTube (from Season 5 of Teen Wolf)

May 16th for PS4, probably June 13th for Xbox One

June 13th is the Tuesday one month later but they may have to stick to June 16th to match whatever legal agreements they have.

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!

By Stormblade - Posted on 26 April 2017

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


OMG! The price for Assassin's Creed Unity has now jumped to $4.99 CAD on Cdkeys.


If you are interested in the newly released Middle-Earth: Shadow of War but don't want to jump in at $79.99 You can see where it all started with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (Standard Disc Version) for $11.99 at the Microsoft Store.
Now you too can follow the yellow brick road to platform 9¾ while trying to roll a critical hit.


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