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

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, …
