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.

HXR Blog - One Year Old / Giving back To You Lot (GIVEAWAY)

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…
