Doom Open Beta Now Available To Pre-Download


Much like the Battleborn open beta which is available to pre-download right now on the Xbox Store, the Open beta for Doom is now also available to pre-download too. I remember being blown away when Bethesda showed it off at their own E3 event of last year, so you can bet your ass I'm pre-download my beta as I'm typing this up. 

The Beta is expected to feature only two levels, those being ones called Heatwave and Infernal. We will also only get two modes to play with levels, those modes being Team Deathmatch and Warpath. You can also expect never-before-seen weapons, armor sets, taunts and hack modules joining in on what looks to be a ton of bloody gory fun.

The beta times are listed on the Xbox store as Starting on April 15th at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time (UTC - 4), with the beta set to end two days later on April 17 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (UTC - 4. When checking the times in the UK with those times given it seems to point to a 5am start time for us, but I will update this post if I find out that isn't the case at all



Doom is set for a full release on May 13th on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Review - Venom Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack

If you thought my last review about a charging dock must have been hard work to make an interesting read, how do you think I feel doing it for a Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack? You have already read (I hope) my thoughts on my previous way of getting all that power to my controller of many worlds, with this one being less shorter than that just because this pack is a lot more basic when it comes to what you get in the box. It's also worth noting that for a few quid more you can hook yourself up with the docking station version of this pack if you wish, so be sure to check out links to both products at the end of this post (neither of which will give me anything if ordering off. Just so you know).

I've dealt with Venom a few times in the past when it comes to reviewing their items. With me being lucky (depending on how you look at it) enough to getting my hands on some of their headsets and reviewing them elsewhere in the past. The one worry I had spending some money on a Venom…

HXR Plays - Overwatch Opening Intro + Reaper Gameplay

Today I start a little series on here where I have a little play with 1 of the 21 characters available in the massively addictive game that is Overwatch.

Today sees me show off the opening intro, as well as playing a game with the character known as Reaper. He falls into the offense side when it comes to character selection, and is great if you enjoy a bit of right in your face combat.

Reaper like the other 20 characters in the game has a few specials to play with outside of his standard weapon. Not only do his standard Hellfire shotguns pack a mean punch at close quarters, but he also has Wraith Form (invincible for a short few seconds but not able to shoot), Shadow Step, which is a fancy way of saying teleporting from one place to another, and finally we have his charged special known as Death Blossom. This special sees Reaper spin around for a few seconds while unloading his deadly shotguns, killing anyone who is stupid enough to get in the way.

More gameplays on the way with me h…

You can now download the two brand new choices seen in the title above on your Xbox One and 360, as late last night they were added to Games With Gold section of your console.

Here are both the trailers and links for you to go get downloading. Let me know what you think of either game in the comments below or over on the Twitter & Facebook accounts.
