Quick Review - DeadCore

If you never saw my tweet recently, the next few reviews are going to be a bit basic with less waffle and me just getting to the point if they are worth your time or not. I'm doing this simply for the fact I want to get them done and dusted. DeadCore has been one of the games which has had me going back and forth on my thoughts on the game, making for a tough final review that I'm typing today.

DeadCore is one of those games that will see a mixture of feelings from gamers who decide to pick it up, partly thanks to the mixture of genres that make the game up. Part platformer, part puzzler, part driving you bloody crazy. DeadCore has been one of those games which has challenged me to levels that I've not seen since surface since playing Dark Souls, a game which I felt like I was headbutting a digital wall on repeat.

The game sees you given a level that has a start and an end, with your goal being to get there by any means possible. While the first level eases you in gently (sort of), I'm now at a point where I'm expected to do a number of things just to get across to another platform. As you work your way through these levels you are unlocking new skills that you will need, so things like dash, double jumps, and a gun to shoot objects all start coming in to play the deeper you get. Like I said, I'm currently on a section which requires me jumping onto one of the many jump spots which have a boost pad on them and then dash through lasers and repeat (click here to witness the pain). I've hit my wall after a good hour of trying now, making the game something I'm just failing to enjoy anymore.
For those that want a such a challenge, the game offers a decent amount of levels, with the option to then speedrun them once beaten to try and do well against others on the leaderboards. Each level also has things to find by exploring, so things like logs and tracks are there if you fancy taking a look around.

Overall: I personally just stopped having fun with DeadCore within the first few hours, with the difficulty ramping up to a level that seemed to have the simple goal of just wanting to pi** you off. DeadCore just became something I stopped feeling the need to want to load up anymore. If you like a challenge though, the game might be something that you could enjoy.

  1. Don't think this is for me. Watching videos of it looks frustrating, never mind playing the game!

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.

Is Your Xbox One Now TV App Not Working? Check Out This Simple Fix

Over the last week or so, if you're anything like me you've been pulling your hair out trying to get your Now TV app to load up and not had much success. Like me you've been met with nothing but an error code and a timed out screen, and no real help on how to fix it.
I'm sure you've tried to reinstall the app, hard reset your console, the lot. Like I said I've been there, so was bloody annoyed to find out how easy it is to get the app to work, which I did so for the first time this very morning by doing the below trick.

Before I pass on this nugget of information, just so you know MS and the guys behind NOW TV are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. Use this trick for now though so you can get use of the passes you have paid for with your hard earned cash.

Step one: Turn on your console and sign out of your Xbox Live account.
Step Two: Go to the Now TV app and try starting it up like you normally would
Step Three: Watch as it finally gets past the logo s…

Review - Crayola Scoot

Crayola Scoot was one of those games I went into knowing what to expect. This after watching many preview videos who all seemingly found it hard not to mention a Tony Hawk's games while showing what it offered. Kinda like when you see a new top-down-racer and have to hold in games like Micro Machines, or a new fighting game and end up dropping Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter in the mix. We all do it, and half the time the actual gameplay doesn't come anywhere close to the classic games we mention. Deep down inside I knew this would be the case when loading up Crayola Scoot for myself, but I had to see it with my own eyes of course, as I'm not afraid of ever being proved wrong. Sure enough, the only similarities to this and a Tony Hawk game are the fact you ride on a thing with wheels around areas and perform tricks, and that boys and girls is where it ends.

Crayola Scoot goes for the bright and colourful world seen in games such as Splatoon, with the game certainly aimed …
