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 - 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…

Review - Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War

Boy, has my getting reviews out in a quick fashion gone to pot the last few weeks. Life has been a kicking me in the balls the last couple of months, which you would know if you stay in touch with me on social media, with illness hitting and just a few personal things that needed my full attention being some of the reasons even looking at my review pile brought me out in a cold sweat. Shadow of War hit my doormat what feels like ages ago now, and with it came outrage too, with gamers kicking off what I like to call the 'we ain't taking your crap anymore' period we currently find ourselves in. That said, and with the X release now upon us, Shadow of War is always mentioned as one game many buyers of the console were saving for it, so it just goes to show how quick gamers can have a change of heart these days.

I was always going to play this sequel after enjoying Shadow of Mordor a lot. So this outrage was not something that dampened my excitement for Shadow of War at all, …
