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.
Winner was chosen and sent code.

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 …
