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.

HXR Blog - One Year Old / Giving back To You Lot (GIVEAWAY)

A year ago today I decided to bring back Honest Xbox Reviews with the hope that people would actually come and read whatever words I typed up on review items that I got my hands on.  Like the little box on the side of the blog has said since this started, I know I'm not the greatest when it comes to forming words into a sentence, but hopefully, my passion and enjoyment of typing comes across in what I do.

I've been doing this now for what feels like forever, with this name being used on a website previously, and then Honest Games Reviews being my writing home. Sure this journey has had its ups and downs over the years, but I still enjoy getting to meet new people on social media and also offering reviews that don't hold back or tiptoe around something being utterly pants because it might end with me being ignored in the future

If you've followed me from day dot (I'm talking HXR first time around) you will know I always try to give back to those who support and re…
