EA Kick Off E3 With EA Play (Game Trailers Galore)

Last night saw EA kicking E3 off with their own show, with EA play giving them a chance to show what they have in store for gamers for the next year and a bit. A few games stood out for me which we will get into a bit. But first I'm going to get the sports games out the way, as those didn't really give much away in terms of looks but a few new details on what to expect did. I will link to trailers in the post rather than sticking them all up on the site. To view them just click the CLICK ME part after I speak about each game.

Madden 18 will feature a FIFA like Journey mode this year, with the story for this being called Longshot. Playing the game as Devin Wade, much like the Journey, the goal is taking your guy to the heights of stardom after a three-year break from the game (Official website doesn't cover why the long break away). If it gives me a reason to check out the game not being an American Football fan, then I'm all for it. CLICK ME.

FIFA 18, well nothing really happened in truth, other than a bit more talk about Ronaldo and how this is, of course, going to be a best FIFA game to date. We also see Alex Hunter return in yet another Journey mode for FIFA 18 (Release Date - Sep 29th). Two trailers here, one for gameplay (more like that fancy replay looking gameplay and not actual stuff) CLICK ME, and a trailer Showing off the second Journey CLICK ME.

Now for a game that I'm certainly interested in, that game being Need for Speed Payback. Looking like the standard Need for Speed with the Fast & Furious turned up to a 10,  the gameplay that was shown also had shades of Burnout too. CLICK ME.

A Way Out is a game from the guy and team behind a game I loved, Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons. A Way Out looks to offer a unique offline and online co-op only experience, with you and a friend/random online person in control of two characters. Certainly, one to watch before its release in early 2018. CLICK ME FOR THE REVEAL. CLICK ME FOR THE GAMEPLAY TRAILER.

Then we had NBA LIVE 18. I got nothing. Well, a free demo is coming in August, that's about it. CLICK ME.

Then Battlefront 2 took over for the rest of the show for what felt like an eternity. Offering a story mode around this time around, I was looking forward to seeing a bit more about that, but EA went with a bucketload of MP stuff. Looks good, but I'm still worried that things may be short-lived much like the first game. Fingers crossed it isn't. I'm sure we will see more of this game at the Sony brief. CLICK ME.

Battlefield 1 DLC. CLICK ME.

Now we did get a tease for the Xbox brief too, with Bioware having a new game called Anthem set be shown later this evening. Watching IGN last night for the EA show, their guys seem to believe it's a Destiny like game. I certainly think it will be something that is being used to showcase the power of Scorpio, but I guess we find out all the facts later tonight. Set for release of Fall 2018 CLICK ME FOR THE SHORT TEASE.

So how did EA do for you? I personally think the show itself focused way too much on Z-list celeb like influencers and online celebs, when as gamers we don't care about all that, we just want the games. Peter Moore was deeply missed too. I'm looking forward to some of the games, with most I've talked about today certainly being on the must review list when they release. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Enjoy the post or do you prefer trailers right in the post? let me know if this works for you and I will do it for the other shows too. See you tomorrow with the Xbox post ;)


  1. Thanks for putting all the info in one place for us, mate! I wasn't planning to watch the EA part but ended up doing so. There wasn't really much I was interested in. "A Way Out" might be AMAZING but I'm much more of a single player guy and the Bioware thing (ADVENT? Previously Project DYLAN?) looked good but is probably going to be a "Destiny" type thing. Hopefully, The really good stuff will come tonight!

    1. Damnit,Bioware game is ANTHEM. "Advent" are the baddies from Xcom2! Playing it recently and got confused!

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.

Is Your Xbox One Now TV App Not Working? Check Out This Simple Fix

Over the last week or so, if you're anything like me you've been pulling your hair out trying to get your Now TV app to load up and not had much success. Like me you've been met with nothing but an error code and a timed out screen, and no real help on how to fix it.
I'm sure you've tried to reinstall the app, hard reset your console, the lot. Like I said I've been there, so was bloody annoyed to find out how easy it is to get the app to work, which I did so for the first time this very morning by doing the below trick.

Before I pass on this nugget of information, just so you know MS and the guys behind NOW TV are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. Use this trick for now though so you can get use of the passes you have paid for with your hard earned cash.

Step one: Turn on your console and sign out of your Xbox Live account.
Step Two: Go to the Now TV app and try starting it up like you normally would
Step Three: Watch as it finally gets past the logo s…

Review - Crayola Scoot

Crayola Scoot was one of those games I went into knowing what to expect. This after watching many preview videos who all seemingly found it hard not to mention a Tony Hawk's games while showing what it offered. Kinda like when you see a new top-down-racer and have to hold in games like Micro Machines, or a new fighting game and end up dropping Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter in the mix. We all do it, and half the time the actual gameplay doesn't come anywhere close to the classic games we mention. Deep down inside I knew this would be the case when loading up Crayola Scoot for myself, but I had to see it with my own eyes of course, as I'm not afraid of ever being proved wrong. Sure enough, the only similarities to this and a Tony Hawk game are the fact you ride on a thing with wheels around areas and perform tricks, and that boys and girls is where it ends.

Crayola Scoot goes for the bright and colourful world seen in games such as Splatoon, with the game certainly aimed …
