DLC Review - Dovetail Games Euro Fishing: Foundry Dock

The test for me today is to make you guys feel the need to read a review to the very end about a digital lake in a fishing game. Still here? Then I've won half the battle.

Euro Fishing was a game I really enjoyed (and seemingly still do after getting addicted to it again thanks to this DLC) when I reviewed it back in June of Last year. Admittedly since the review went up on the site way back then, my time spent on the game has been somewhat limited what with trying my blooming best to get somewhere with all of this reviewing malarky, but I have found myself going back every now and then for my moment of zen.

This Foundry Dock DLC was a reason for me to get back into the game over the last few days but is the new area really worth the asking price of £8.99/$10.99
As a fan of the game previously, had I dropped £8.99 I would have been somewhat disappointed as to what I got in return, what with this new area not really having anything new about it over the other areas in the game when it comes to what lies under the murky waters. You're essentially paying for the area and not any new stuff to catch other than 20 new boss fish, with this lake also having the standard Roach, Tench, Bream, and Catfish there to catch too, so the £8.99 asking price does seem a little steep for what you get once you realise that.

While much hype can and has been put on the urban setting that the area is set in, can we really lie to ourselves here and say that it looks top quality? Euro Fishing has never looked top quality, so to sell me an area that looks like something that is set on a back lot of something that I would find in Farming Simulator is pushing it a bit too far if you ask me. Does it reallyyyyyy offer anything different from the previous lakes available in the full game? No, no it doesn't. But there is something there that might make it a decent purchase for those who have lost hours in the game already, as I'm sure by now they are fed up with looking at places such as Presa Del Monte Bravo and ST Johns Lake. The DLC also offers ten new achievements too, so the pull for those guys to come along and buy this for those is there as well.
 
Overall: Perhaps a little bit too pricey for what you get in return I'm sad to say, with this DLC not really offering anything different over the current set of locations in the game as things stand. Maybe hold off for a DLC sale where you can pick it up for a lot less, or even when the game and DLC bundle is lower than the asking price of £19.99/$24.99

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

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

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.
