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.

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 - Stay

Games these days are deeper than ever before.

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…

Review - Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War

Boy, has my getting reviews out in a quick fashion gone to pot the last few weeks. Life has been a kicking me in the balls the last couple of months, which you would know if you stay in touch with me on social media, with illness hitting and just a few personal things that needed my full attention being some of the reasons even looking at my review pile brought me out in a cold sweat. Shadow of War hit my doormat what feels like ages ago now, and with it came outrage too, with gamers kicking off what I like to call the 'we ain't taking your crap anymore' period we currently find ourselves in. That said, and with the X release now upon us, Shadow of War is always mentioned as one game many buyers of the console were saving for it, so it just goes to show how quick gamers can have a change of heart these days.

I was always going to play this sequel after enjoying Shadow of Mordor a lot. So this outrage was not something that dampened my excitement for Shadow of War at all, …
