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 - 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 Venom…

Review - The LEGO movie 2 Videogame

I've lost track of how many LEGO games I've owned or reviewed in all the years of doing this review stuff. With each one not really changing that much from the last, but seemingly always being there for me when a gaming funk hit and I've just not felt like playing anything too tasking. The memory of the first LEGO Movie game has seemingly been lost in my mind when thinking about it right now while typing up this intro (good job I write stuff down) but turns out now checking the previous review link I thought quite highly of it. LEGO movie 2 follows pretty much the same concept as every other LEGO game story in the past, but let's explain that for the zero people that have no idea what that is, and also the shocking new story full of twist and turns with this new game (note sarcasm).

LEGO Movie 2 kicks off with cute aliens coming down and attacking, and it's up to you and your cast of characters and unlockable items to take them down. Honestly, the story is probabl…
