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.

Review - Venom Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack

If you thought my last review about a charging dock must have been hard work to make an interesting read, how do you think I feel doing it for a Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack? You have already read (I hope) my thoughts on my previous way of getting all that power to my controller of many worlds, with this one being less shorter than that just because this pack is a lot more basic when it comes to what you get in the box. It's also worth noting that for a few quid more you can hook yourself up with the docking station version of this pack if you wish, so be sure to check out links to both products at the end of this post (neither of which will give me anything if ordering off. Just so you know).

I've dealt with Venom a few times in the past when it comes to reviewing their items. With me being lucky (depending on how you look at it) enough to getting my hands on some of their headsets and reviewing them elsewhere in the past. The one worry I had spending some money on a Venom…

You can now download the two brand new choices seen in the title above on your Xbox One and 360, as late last night they were added to Games With Gold section of your console. I'm really keen to get digging back into Forza Horizon myself, but Earthlock is always worth a look, as with it being free you don't really have nothing to lose. Here are both the trailers and links for you to go get downloading. Let me know what you think of either game in the comments below or over on the Twitter & Facebook accounts.
