HoC Random Meme of the Day - 09252016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 25 September 2016

This occurred to us last night playing Halo the Master Chief Collection

I am slowly working my way backwards through the Halo games. Having completed Halo 5, Halo 4, and Halo 3 Coxxorz joined me for part of my journey through Halo 2 Anniversary: Chapter 4: Outskirts.

And it was good until we started "Ladies Like Armor Plating" on Chapter 5: Metropolis. There was a domestic dispute with Sheila. It didn't end well. Grenades may have been involved. And/or a rocket launcher. Some of us didn't make it.

HoC Random Astroneer of the Day - 09242016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 September 2016

Four player co-op space survival

    As an Astroneer, you must find a way to dig out a life on one of a multitude of harsh new worlds. Blast through the terrain to uncover precious artifacts and materials you can use to fuel your quest to become a wealthy baron in the stars. Along the way, discover oddities, raise questions, and uncover mysteries.

    Perhaps not all is as it seems.


    Unlike another recent procedural space exploration title……Astroneer will support online co-op for up to four players.

Coming to Xbox One Game Preview December 2016. Co-op survival. We are doomed.

HoC Random Dice Towers of the Day - 09192016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 September 2016

This past Sunday was truly the Day of the Dice Towers

In two week's time Rolly will be hosting a Dungeons & Dragons party for his birthday. Five of his friends will be joining him on his quest. As part of the planning process we have decided to gift all of the attendees with a set of Dungeons & Dragons dice.

Upon further discussion we thought it would be a nice idea to also provide everyone with Dice Towers for their new dice. I had built some Dice Towers before with Hirst Arts bricks but figured I could do something more appropriate (ie: cheap and temporary) out of paper, cardboard, or foamcore. This led to a significant amount of websites and forums that I had never delved into before. Or probably will again.

I came up with four prototypes over the space of the day:

Microsoft sends out your Warthog Redemption Code through Xbox Live messaging

Previously some of us were discussing how Microsoft/Xbox would be sending out the Warthog Redemption Codes.

They will be sent using the Xbox Messaging System. I received mine on September 15th.

A couple of notes about earning the Warthog for Forza Horizon 3:

A funny thing happened on the way to the Horizon Festival

By Blackwalt - Posted on 16 September 2016

So Stormblade and Blackwalt played the Forza Horizons 3 demo (together)

One thing important to note about Forza titles is the AI drivers are populated from your Xbox Friends List. If your friends have played a recent Forza title your AI Driver is a Drivatar. An AI built on top of your driving history. In theory an AI that will drive similar to how you have driven in Forza. All good.

My drivatar has been updated from Forza 5 and Forza Horizons 2 as well as the Forza Horizons 3 demo. Stormblade's has been updated from the Forza Horizons 3 demo. Which is not relevant here.

It's a nice night for a drive, isn't it

Sega Nite! Join us in the Forza Horizon 3 demo and help us determine if it is worth buying

2-12 players supported in the demo which I know you have already downloaded.

Come on. It's only a measely 18GB.

See you online.

So far I have dodged crocodiles (may have been an alligator), raced helicopters and driven along a beach front through the water. Oh, and there were caves.
