Xbox One Owners Ignored With Latest Pre-Order Incentive For Sniper Ghost Warrior 3


A few days ago the guys behind Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 decided a little pre-order incentive boost was needed to boost sales of their upcoming game, little did they know (amazingly) how peed off this would make a section of the gaming public they were releasing it to.

You see, CI Games thought a season pass edition ($29.99 worth of content says the website) would be a great idea, but that edition has one flaw, they decided to make it available only to those pre-ordering on the PC and PS4, ignoring the Xbox One portion of their market without even making note of why they were missing out. Now while it's normally easy to ignore little bits of console exclusive DLC, many fans have let their feelings known about this on Reddit and Twitter and such, making this become a game many that maybe were going to check out, now become something they will flat out ignore when it comes to its release on April 4th. You can see the DLC that will be included in this free PC/PS4 season pass in the image below, which will no doubt be DLC on the Xbox One version too, but with Xbox One Owners having to dig into their pockets again if they want to try it out. As you can see it offers two single player expansions, as well as two new maps for the online portion, so it isn't pointless DLC at all.

We tend to see these console exclusive deals for what many would say "bigger games" but it certainly seems a very odd choice for a game as what many see as the ugly looking sibling when it comes to games with Sniper in the title, let alone one that has a release way before this game will hit shelves.

Like I say, no one has really come out yet and said if this is because a company has paid for such an exclusive deal, or it's just silly stuff from the people behind the game. A statement on the blog post announcing this news also seems to act as if Xbox One gamers buying the game mean nothing to them either, with the CEO of CI Games, Marek TymiƄski, saying "We have a long-term investment in our community and believe that this season pass is a huge value to them" Making those excluded Xbox One buyers of the game feel even better there Marek, great job. Hopefully both Marek and those at CI Games see sense if this isn't any sort of exclusive deal and fix it before its too late.

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, …
