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.

HXR Blog - One Year Old / Giving back To You Lot (GIVEAWAY)

A year ago today I decided to bring back Honest Xbox Reviews with the hope that people would actually come and read whatever words I typed up on review items that I got my hands on.  Like the little box on the side of the blog has said since this started, I know I'm not the greatest when it comes to forming words into a sentence, but hopefully, my passion and enjoyment of typing comes across in what I do.

I've been doing this now for what feels like forever, with this name being used on a website previously, and then Honest Games Reviews being my writing home. Sure this journey has had its ups and downs over the years, but I still enjoy getting to meet new people on social media and also offering reviews that don't hold back or tiptoe around something being utterly pants because it might end with me being ignored in the future

If you've followed me from day dot (I'm talking HXR first time around) you will know I always try to give back to those who support and re…
