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 - 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, …
