HXR News: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Gets A Two Week Release Delay
With so many betas doing the rounds the last few weeks, you can totally understand why as a Dad of two and the juggling of playing all these great games, it's only now I've seen this news. Erik Odeldahl, Design Director for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, has posted a small blog post on the official website to let us know that the game will now be seeing a two delay in the UK, as the team want to make sure they have the opportunity and time
to address player feedback from the Closed Beta. With the delay only a small two weeks extra wait, you can now expect to be able to play the game for yourself on June 9th.
There will be a blog post up about the beta very soon with some thoughts and gameplay, so be sure to look out for that.
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.
Over the last week or so, if you're anything like me you've been pulling your hair out trying to get your Now TV app to load up and not had much success. Like me you've been met with nothing but an error code and a timed out screen, and no real help on how to fix it.
I'm sure you've tried to reinstall the app, hard reset your console, the lot. Like I said I've been there, so was bloody annoyed to find out how easy it is to get the app to work, which I did so for the first time this very morning by doing the below trick.
Before I pass on this nugget of information, just so you know MS and the guys behind NOW TV are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. Use this trick for now though so you can get use of the passes you have paid for with your hard earned cash.
Step one: Turn on your console and sign out of your Xbox Live account. Step Two: Go to the Now TV app and try starting it up like you normally would Step Three: Watch as it finally gets past the logo s…
Crayola Scoot was one of those games I went into knowing what to expect. This after watching many preview videos who all seemingly found it hard not to mention a Tony Hawk's games while showing what it offered. Kinda like when you see a new top-down-racer and have to hold in games like Micro Machines, or a new fighting game and end up dropping Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter in the mix. We all do it, and half the time the actual gameplay doesn't come anywhere close to the classic games we mention. Deep down inside I knew this would be the case when loading up Crayola Scoot for myself, but I had to see it with my own eyes of course, as I'm not afraid of ever being proved wrong. Sure enough, the only similarities to this and a Tony Hawk game are the fact you ride on a thing with wheels around areas and perform tricks, and that boys and girls is where it ends.
Crayola Scoot goes for the bright and colourful world seen in games such as Splatoon, with the game certainly aimed …
