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.
A year ago today I decided to bring back Honest Xbox Reviews with the hope that people would actually come and read whatever words I typed up on review items that I got my hands on. Like the little box on the side of the blog has said since this started, I know I'm not the greatest when it comes to forming words into a sentence, but hopefully, my passion and enjoyment of typing comes across in what I do.
I've been doing this now for what feels like forever, with this name being used on a website previously, and then Honest Games Reviews being my writing home. Sure this journey has had its ups and downs over the years, but I still enjoy getting to meet new people on social media and also offering reviews that don't hold back or tiptoe around something being utterly pants because it might end with me being ignored in the future
If you've followed me from day dot (I'm talking HXR first time around) you will know I always try to give back to those who support and re…
