Did You Like Lifeless Planet? Then Lifeless Moon Is Something You Need To Know About

I reviewed Lifeless Planet way back in 2015 when it launched onto consoles, with the game getting a 2.8/5 (what kind of di** gives a 2.8) when I reviewed it when I was part of Honest Games Reviews. Without reading through that review all over again, I think back and remember having an okay time with it, with the only bad thing being that it was very much a one time play and done with it experience.

The three-person core team at Stage 2 Studios today announced a new game is on the way in Lifeless Moon, with the blog page going on to say that the game is more a prequel than it is a sequel to Lifeless Planet. While Lifeless Moon looks to offer more of the same to that of the previous game, the small FAQ post on the blog page does say that Lifeless Moon will have a deeper focus on puzzles than that of Lifeless Planet, with the core experience being one of exploration and also discovery.

The events of Lifeless Moon take place in the early 1970s during the first human missions to the Moon. with the game being set before Lifeless Planet, but also being loosely connected to it. Other than that, all we know currently is that "during an expedition to the Moon, two astronauts find themselves in a familiar town back on Earth. They soon find the town is the beginning of a strange and mysterious journey".

The game is set for a release in 2018 with no formats being confirmed as of yet, but a Kickstarter is planned (WHICH I WILL ADD HERE ONCE IT GOES LIVE). This post is more to make people aware of the game than it is to say the game is coming to the Xbox One. Sure that may happen, but only time and a successful Kickstarter will make that possible.

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 - RiME

Trying to keep a review of a game like RiME spoiler free is a bloody tough task to do, let me tell you. Like so many games these days, RiME isn't just simply a game but is also an experience in which to get the most out of you need to stay well away from idiots like me whose role it is to tell you how good something is. If you know me well enough by now you will know spoilers are never my thing when it comes to reviews. I'm lucky enough to enjoy games without paying my own cash for then every now and then, so those who do go out and spend their hard-earned cash on games need to have the same experience I did with a certain game, and not have a buffoon like me ruin all the best bits for them. If you don't mind spoilers and want a more detailed review of things when it comes to RiME I suggest going elsewhere. This review will be me tip-toeing around things while trying my best to explain why RiME might just be my most enjoyable gaming experience of 2017 so far.
