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 ;)

Review - Venom Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack

If you thought my last review about a charging dock must have been hard work to make an interesting read, how do you think I feel doing it for a Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack? You have already read (I hope) my thoughts on my previous way of getting all that power to my controller of many worlds, with this one being less shorter than that just because this pack is a lot more basic when it comes to what you get in the box. It's also worth noting that for a few quid more you can hook yourself up with the docking station version of this pack if you wish, so be sure to check out links to both products at the end of this post (neither of which will give me anything if ordering off. Just so you know). I've dealt with Venom a few times in the past when it comes to reviewing their items. With me being lucky (depending on how you look at it) enough to getting my hands on some of their headsets and reviewing them elsewhere in the past. The one worry I had spending some money on a Ven

Earthlock: Festival of Magic (XB1) & Forza Horizon (360) Now Available With Games With Gold

You can now download the two brand new choices seen in the title above on your Xbox One and 360, as late last night they were added to Games With Gold section of your console. I'm really keen to get digging back into Forza Horizon myself, but Earthlock is always worth a look, as with it being free you don't really have nothing to lose. Here are both the trailers and links for you to go get downloading. Let me know what you think of either game in the comments below or over on the Twitter & Facebook accounts. Earthlock: Festival Of Magic (Xbox One) Forza Horizon (Available on both 360 and Xbox One via backwards compatibility)

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 wi
