Return Of An Old Friend


This may not mean a lot to most of the people who read this, as unless you have followed me on Twitter from the very start you won't know where it all began for me. HXR was always and will always be my little baby. A simple site and name to many of you, but to me it's something that I and co-creator Rob worked our asses off to make not the greatest website perhaps, but indeed something at least I was proud of, right until we shut up shop and become that multi-format site that it became today.

The story of why I was removed from the other site is not any secret or dark thing that needs to be hidden away. I'm not bitter or annoyed with what both David and Gary (hosters of HGR) did by changing all my passwords and removing me from something I helped create and keep active for so long. I'm just let down by their actions in the last few weeks. The one big letdown is when asking for my written and video work to be taken off the site and YouTube as I start all over again, only for David to tell me all my work belonged to them. I think I show the kind of person I am when letting them keep a site, a YouTube account, and also a Twitter account that I spent a stupid amount of time on, which saw me in turn missing out on time with family as I tried my best to stop it from sinking and being unactive.

My main goal now is to try my best to make MY blog a success, and I am going to work my arse off to make that happen. Is this site going to be able to capture what the old HXR website offered right away? More than likely not if I'm honest. But it will have the passion and honesty that both the previous HXR  as well as the HGR site had up until my leaving. Now less looking back and more looking forward. Thanks again if you followed me from elsewhere and enjoyed what I did in the past. Now be sure to share me about with your followers and friends, as sharing is caring you beautiful people.

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…

Review - Stay

Games these days are deeper than ever before. Gone are the days of most games offering the happy go lucky cute games we played in the past where everything was rainbows and happiness, with games these days more than happy to delve and dig deep when it comes to subjects that many hate to speak with others about without feeling some sort of shame. Even though many of us are perhaps going through the same sort of thing, only we hide it too. Stay was one of those games that I only found about recently upon getting an email about its release and posting about here. So I went in not really knowing what to expect from it, only from what I saw in that email seemingly being a cool idea and concept before playing.

Stay opens up with you meeting a person called Quinn in a room just doing some stuff, only when climbing into bed for the night a mysterious figure appears over him and knocks him out. Quinn wakes up to find himself locked away in a dark, damp bunker, with the only means of outside c…

Review - Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War

Boy, has my getting reviews out in a quick fashion gone to pot the last few weeks. Life has been a kicking me in the balls the last couple of months, which you would know if you stay in touch with me on social media, with illness hitting and just a few personal things that needed my full attention being some of the reasons even looking at my review pile brought me out in a cold sweat. Shadow of War hit my doormat what feels like ages ago now, and with it came outrage too, with gamers kicking off what I like to call the 'we ain't taking your crap anymore' period we currently find ourselves in. That said, and with the X release now upon us, Shadow of War is always mentioned as one game many buyers of the console were saving for it, so it just goes to show how quick gamers can have a change of heart these days.

I was always going to play this sequel after enjoying Shadow of Mordor a lot. So this outrage was not something that dampened my excitement for Shadow of War at all, …
