Need For Speed Payback Trailer And Release Date Revealed

Excuse the lateness in getting this out, but a week of trying to wrap reviews up and keep two kids occupied on half term has taken its toll. EA announced this week that Need For Speed Payback is set for a release on November 10th, with a shiny Fast & Furious like trailer to go with it. The game sees you take control of three characters, those characters being Tyler (the Racer), Mac (the Showman), and finally Jess (the Wheelman). The game is set in the underworld of a place called Fortune Valley, with the story set to be a quest for vengeance against the House, a cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. Going through a variety of challenges and events if you wish to get these three characters what they want, the game also features the deepest customization options ever, with players able to craft and personalise a unique ride, or spend hours finding and tuning an abandoned derelict into a supercar.  If you enjoyed previous games in the series, then this looks likes one to watch when it comes releases on November 10th.

Of course, you get to try it out first on Xbox One when it comes to early play on EA Access the week before release. On November 2nd EA Access members will get the standard ten-hour trial, with no mention of a cutoff point in terms of story progression in the press release, but will know more about this closer to the release.

People who pre-order also get a few free gifts, with the basic pre-order giving players a Need for Speed Payback Platinum Car Pack, gaining them instant access to five iconic cars, all of which also have exclusive blue tire smoke. The cars in this pack are a Nissan 350Z 2008, a Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967, a Dodge Charger R/T 1969, a Ford F-150 Raptor 2016, and wrapping things up, a Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016. Going that extra mile and pre-ordering the Need for Speed Deluxe edition, players are given access to the full game three days early (November 7th) too. Along with this, deluxe buyers will also gain access to exclusive customization items such as the Deluxe Edition license plate and NOS colour, in-game discounts, Rep bonuses, plus everything the Platinum Car Pack has to offer, and more.

You can pre-order the both STANDARD and DELUXE editions now on the Xbox store, which you can do so by clicking the version you want on this very post. I will be sure to bring you some early footage of the game when it comes to EA Access later in the year.

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 with me h…

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, …
