Oddworld: Soulstorm Set For Release Late 2017


One thing I remember when doing reviews and news for my old writing place was getting to see how loved Abe and Oddworld actually was, so the fact I've not seen the Internet go crazy for this news just yet (or I might have missed that day) has been a massive surprise. I played the last game in both old and new form (well tried to I think you would call it) with my love for the Abe fart button being a memory in gaming that will stick with me until I'm in the afterlife somewhere. So the chance to press that fart button once again is surely a reason to keep an eye out for this.

Oddworld Inhabitants Inc revealed that the follow-up to Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will be released in 2017 and it shall be called.........Oddworld: Soulstorm (name of the post kind of gave it away already). No platforms have been confirmed just yet, but Sony seeming to be more the company most interested in it by being the only ones I've seen retweeting the above image out when it was revealed late last week on the Oddworld Inc Twitter account.

The press release gave some decent facts on when the game takes place and what you can expect, so rather than me typing that up here is what it said.

"Oddworld: Soulstorm picks up from Abe’s genesis and directly follows on from the overthrow of RuptureFarms and the liberation of his blighted workmates.  Having defeated Molluck The Glukkon, his former boss and RuptureFarms’ meanest inhabitant, Abe soon finds himself - along with 300 newly emancipated Mudokons - without food, water or a place to call home. Stranded alone in the desert, they find solace in a strange new brew - a delicious drink that has insidious ramifications for their newfound freedom".

Go follow the Oddworld Inc Twitter account to be kept up to date with this game, but I will also do my best to keep you updated when platforms and price and such things are announced.

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 - Crayola Scoot

Crayola Scoot was one of those games I went into knowing what to expect. This after watching many preview videos who all seemingly found it hard not to mention a Tony Hawk's games while showing what it offered. Kinda like when you see a new top-down-racer and have to hold in games like Micro Machines, or a new fighting game and end up dropping Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter in the mix. We all do it, and half the time the actual gameplay doesn't come anywhere close to the classic games we mention. Deep down inside I knew this would be the case when loading up Crayola Scoot for myself, but I had to see it with my own eyes of course, as I'm not afraid of ever being proved wrong. Sure enough, the only similarities to this and a Tony Hawk game are the fact you ride on a thing with wheels around areas and perform tricks, and that boys and girls is where it ends.

Crayola Scoot goes for the bright and colourful world seen in games such as Splatoon, with the game certainly aimed …
