HXR Quick Look - Snooker Nation Championship (Now Over)


The game preview program on the Xbox One has seen some great releases since it was announced back at E3 of 2015. I've personally enjoyed games like Ark: Survival Evolved, Subnautica, and also getting to experience We Happy Few before it gets a full release next year. I will admit that perhaps Snooker Nation Championship didn't get the Internet flowing with excitement like the games mentioned above, but none the less I picked it up due to the low price that it had, with it costing just £4.79.

Me and snooker don't have a long loving relationship like many men my age tend to have with it. Sure I used to be forced to watch it on TV as a kid thanks to my Dad, and I may have even had a table in our kitchen for a couple of years, but it was never a sport (It's a sport right?) that I took that much of an interest in. In terms of games though I've always had a little soft spot for games with balls (leave ittttttt), and have fond memories of both pool and snooker games back in my younger years and playing them with my two older brothers.

Snooker Nation Championship offers you a few modes to play for such a low price, which I show off in the below video, as well as showing off some gameplay. A review for this will come once the game is available as a full release, but for now I don't really have a bad word to say about the game. It offers a decent career mode, as well as online play for you to play against friends. For under £5.00, I'd say that's good value.

Even better, I have two codes to giveaway to any of you out there reading this. Check out the below giveaway to see how you can be in with a chance of winning a code for the game.

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.

Review - Venom Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack

If you thought my last review about a charging dock must have been hard work to make an interesting read, how do you think I feel doing it for a Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack? You have already read (I hope) my thoughts on my previous way of getting all that power to my controller of many worlds, with this one being less shorter than that just because this pack is a lot more basic when it comes to what you get in the box. It's also worth noting that for a few quid more you can hook yourself up with the docking station version of this pack if you wish, so be sure to check out links to both products at the end of this post (neither of which will give me anything if ordering off. Just so you know).

I've dealt with Venom a few times in the past when it comes to reviewing their items. With me being lucky (depending on how you look at it) enough to getting my hands on some of their headsets and reviewing them elsewhere in the past. The one worry I had spending some money on a Venom…

You can now download the two brand new choices seen in the title above on your Xbox One and 360, as late last night they were added to Games With Gold section of your console. I'm really keen to get digging back into Forza Horizon myself, but Earthlock is always worth a look, as with it being free you don't really have nothing to lose. Here are both the trailers and links for you to go get downloading. Let me know what you think of either game in the comments below or over on the Twitter & Facebook accounts.
