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.

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 - Stay

Games these days are deeper than ever before. Gone are the days of most games offering the happy go lucky cute games we played in the past where everything was rainbows and happiness, with games these days more than happy to delve and dig deep when it comes to subjects that many hate to speak with others about without feeling some sort of shame. Even though many of us are perhaps going through the same sort of thing, only we hide it too. Stay was one of those games that I only found about recently upon getting an email about its release and posting about here. So I went in not really knowing what to expect from it, only from what I saw in that email seemingly being a cool idea and concept before playing.

Stay opens up with you meeting a person called Quinn in a room just doing some stuff, only when climbing into bed for the night a mysterious figure appears over him and knocks him out. Quinn wakes up to find himself locked away in a dark, damp bunker, with the only means of outside c…
