AQUA KITTY UDX: Xbox One Ultra Edition Coming To Xbox One Tomorrow (Feb 3rd)


Checking my emails last night before going to bed, I was surprised to see that someone from Tikipod (the publisher of this game) had without me doing anything decided to get in touch and provide a review code for this upcoming release. I've laid off indie reviews for a little while now due to things being super busy at home, and also just because there isn't enough time in my day to cover every release, and I hate not giving every little guy a chance a fair shoutout. If a publisher takes time out of their day to get in touch with me by themselves mind you, well I just got to return to love, haven't I?

AQUA KITTY UDX: Xbox One Ultra Edition is coming to the Xbox One tomorrow (Feb 3rd), and will cost you the small price of just £6.39 if you live here in the UK. Have I seen much of this leading up to release? Well no, no I haven't. I have however given the below trailer a quick look at while downloading the game this morning, and judging by that it looks to offer those shmup fans out there something that they might enjoy. First look I instantly thought of games such as Defender back from when I was a kid, but no hands on time for me as I type this post up stop any sort of opinion coming out of my fingers. Expect some basic gameplay from me on the YouTube channel sometime over the next few days (ps: I suck at shoot 'em ups), with an honest review to follow on this very soon.

Features
An all new, 13 level DREADNOUGHT MODE which plays like a fine blend of Uridium and Defender.
Remastered music, plus all new music tracks and sfx in Dreadnought mode.
Optional local 2 player coop, great if you need an extra cat buddy to help you out!
HUD art retooled and enhanced for greater clarity on busier levels.
Rebalanced levels, such as extra weapons for INFINITE MODE, and reworked CLASSIC MODE levels.
Depth based weapon generation system, allowing you to tactically choose which powerup is spawned and where.
Tricky ARCADE MODE which fuses the gameplay of Defender with the upgrade system of Gradius.

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 - 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…

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 …
