Everything’s under control. Situation normal

Loosely based on HoC Random Peer Pressure of the Day - 010717 and on the additional fact that my copy of Star Wars Battlefront may have arrived today and that I may be installing it.

As usual it is Graybush's fault

This excludes all those times when it was Stormblade's fault, Q-Bert's fault, and/or occasionally Coxxorz' fault

One night after our 0% experience in Ghosts

We did start our night with Ghosts along with SeanMCR but he bailed fairly quickly after our first round. Wanting something a little different Graybush and I switched to Zombie Army Trilogy. Strangely enough it was Graybush's choice.

I went down fairly often, needing Graybush to revive me each time. The video is one of the closest occurrences. We didn't quite hit zero but it was very close.

So. Funny story.

Since Star Wars Battlefront's release in November of 2015 it has been mentioned on HerdofCats many times. A list is included after the jump. A significant number of these have been by Stormblade lamenting that HoC has not jumped on the Star Wars band wagon and joined him online. We still haven't. Coxxorz' even purchased a copy at $29.99 during a summer sale and still has it safely stored in the shrink wrap.

My primary issue was the initial cost of Star Wars Battlefront. $79.99 for the game and $69.99 for the Season Pass. Expensive enough even if the internet hadn't exploded over the lack of content in the initial game release.

Then along came Graybush, late on a Friday night (yesterday) while in the middle of a round of Zombie Army Trilogy.

Graybush and Blackwalt return to Call of Duty Ghosts: Extinction

We didn't remember how to play.

Thursday night Graybush kept me up late playing Ghosts while I simultaneously watched the World Junior Hockey Gold Medal game. Now I can usually pull myself away from gaming or from watching hockey to go to bed on time but it appears I can not pull myself away from both at the same time.

We had a moment during a failed, glitched challenge that was, well, close...

HoC Random Gaming Truth of the Day - 010217

By Blackwalt - Posted on 02 January 2017

I keep hearing this from everywhere...

... yet I still haven't been tempted to buy Titanfall 2. I haven't bought Battlefield One either and I do own Titanfall 1.

But still not tempted.

to explore strange new worlds and perhaps glitch all over them

Okay, the glitch comment is funny but I don't want you to think this game is only glitches. It is just fair warning that this is a Game Preview game. I am still enjoying it but I have found issues. My biggest is with vehicles and joining them together in a train. Often (very often) one of the cars glitches and start jumping in place. It seems like one of the tires gets stuck in the ground and won't let go. Next to impossible to use after that and quickly gets abandoned. Along with whatever valuables it may be carrying. Future archeologists will surely puzzle over the prolific abandonment of Astroneer vehicles all over (mostly under) the planets I have settled.

This is my latest base. See how happy my character is.This is my latest base. See how happy my character is.

But I am still playing this game and still enjoying it. This Star Log is about a funny moment I experienced with RollyC. Did I happen to mention that this game supports coop? Four player coop in fact.

Herd of Cats’ Frozen parody

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 December 2016

I am almost afraid to post anything nowadays as I am afraid it will disappear in the site change over. But this needed to be shared.

Coming out of this comment series and the whole site change situation.

The sad part is with Q-Bert as Elsa and Stormblade as Anna that leaves me and Moricerevek fighting over Olaf the snowman or Sven the reindeer.

Astroneer now available on Xbox One Game Preview

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 December 2016

As mentioned previously on Herd of Cats

$19.99 but with a Try for Free option.

Oh yeah. Four player drop in/drop out coop.

Sorry for not posting a lot but I have no idea when the change over is happening. Direct all comments and complaints elsewhere. I am fully confident.

Is this Stormblade?

By Akuf - Posted on 10 December 2016

Cover your ears: the admins are arguing

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 December 2016

There is an additional delay in the site change over

Stormblade is in an discussion with Q-Bert about saving all the stories in a migration versus a complete rebuild.

More work involved but as long as I am not that one doing it I am all for it.

Of course, the little I have already done may end up being sacrificed and that just makes me sad...

Fox on the run ... Sweet!

By Stormblade - Posted on 04 December 2016

Did anyone else get that? Sweet? ... ugh, I'm so old.


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.
