Uno Returns To Consoles This August


I totally meant to get a post up about this when it was announced on July 19th, but never got around it. So yeah, Uno returns to consoles on August 9th, and if you're anything like me you have nothing but fond memories of it when playing it on your Xbox 360 back in the day.

If you've not played an Uno game before (where the hell have you been), it's a card game in which players take turns trying to get rid of colour coded numbered cards as quick as they can by matching a card in their hand with the colour or number card shown on the top of the playing deck. You also get cards that can change the colour that needs to be played, which also make the next player pick up a bunch of cards too.

This version of Uno will have a variety of online and social features, with players also having the ability to drop in and out of games, as well as using voice and video chat. Also things such as weekly and global leaderboards, interactive tutorials telling you all you need to know before every match, 4 new cards such as the Wild Blue Yonder card, which allows you to protect yourself from drawing cards while passing the penalty down for hilarious results (says the press release). You will also have new themes, with a Rabbids branded theme included with the game.

I shouldn't be this excited for a simple card game, but I am. Expect a review and some gameplay around launch.

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 - 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…

Review - The LEGO movie 2 Videogame

I've lost track of how many LEGO games I've owned or reviewed in all the years of doing this review stuff. With each one not really changing that much from the last, but seemingly always being there for me when a gaming funk hit and I've just not felt like playing anything too tasking. The memory of the first LEGO Movie game has seemingly been lost in my mind when thinking about it right now while typing up this intro (good job I write stuff down) but turns out now checking the previous review link I thought quite highly of it. LEGO movie 2 follows pretty much the same concept as every other LEGO game story in the past, but let's explain that for the zero people that have no idea what that is, and also the shocking new story full of twist and turns with this new game (note sarcasm).

LEGO Movie 2 kicks off with cute aliens coming down and attacking, and it's up to you and your cast of characters and unlockable items to take them down. Honestly, the story is probabl…
