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 - 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…

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…
