LucidSound To Bring Official Licensed Products To The Xbox One Later This Year


I'm yet to get my hands on a LucidSound Xbox One headset to review for the site sadly, but with gaming TV legend Alex Verrey (Big Boy Barry from many a Gaming show if you're old enough to remember) behind the PR, it's no surprise to learn that the company were recently given an official Microsoft License to begin producing headsets for both the Xbox One & Xbox One S.

LucidSound already have three gaming headsets available, those being the LS30 Wireless Universal Gaming Headset, the LS20 Amplified Universal Gaming Headset and the more recent LS40 Wireless Surround Universal Gaming Headset. The new range of licensed products promise to offer features tailored to the Xbox gamer, with further details on this and future headsets expected later this year.

Now like I said at the start of this post, I'm still yet to actually get my hands on one of these headsets and see the quality that they have seemed to offer to other reviewers out there on the Internet, so I can't talk from a hands-on experience like those have when covering this news. My one worry for these headsets is what price LucidSound will deem any headset they release in the future now they have the license, with previous headsets (when launching at least, not so much now some time has past)  being more at the high-end price, rather than a budget and affordable headset for your average gamer who doesn't have a bucketload of cash to spend on a headset. Time will tell I guess, and with more headsets out there for gamers to choose from, this can only mean companies working harder at bringing us better products.

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…
