HXR News: Battlefield 4 Premium and Battlefield Hardline Premium Now Free With EA Access

It came to my attention yesterday afternoon that Battlefield Hardline Premium was showing up as free thanks to a person on Reddit having an eagle eye for such things. Thinking it was a glitch in the system what with a DLC pack from it being a free download in Deals With Gold this week, I of course downloaded it asap thinking it was only a matter of time before it was fixed. Turns out EA are just being bloody nice, well more EA Access should I say.

Both Battlefield 4 premium and Battlefield Hardline Premium are now free with the service, with Hardline premium only being available for a short time, while BF4 premium is there for good. Both packs offer all the DLC and much more for both games, so if you are yet to try either of them out then now is the perfect time.

If you're not an EA Access member and have both the games and have Xbox Live Gold, then be sure to download both the Dragon's Teeth DLC pack for BF4, and the Robbery DLC for Hardline, as both are free thanks to Deals With Gold this week.

Since launch many have stuck there nose up at EA Access just because it is EA, but once again they show this service is something both old and new Xbox One owners should at least try out before dismissing it. Both Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline are in the vault and free to play to, so your getting two fantastic shooters will all the DLC and much much more for under £20.00 a year.

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.

Is Your Xbox One Now TV App Not Working? Check Out This Simple Fix

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…

Review - Crayola Scoot

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 …
