One Of Those Annoying Update Posts

For those that follow on Twitter, me saying this stuff will be pretty common knowledge by now, but this is for those that missed it and more for PR and publishers waiting for reviews from me. The last two months have been both draining and hard, with real life stuff sucking up most of my hours, and family things coming to a point where I feel more time was needed in that department. I reached a point where writing or being the jolly guy I am on social media just wasn't a thing I could do anymore, finding myself just boxing things up and watching days fly by with the stress at what was being put on me at the time.That and the feed was becoming more about my life than video games, and who wants to read out my life?

Only last week were things fully sorted with the stress of what was taking place finally being taken off my shoulders, with the last week or so being all about me getting off my lazy bum and getting a job that will start to bring money into the house.  I go out to my first job interview in ten years, what with bringing up two kids while the Wife was the one who brought the cash into the house. Things will return to how they were very soon, but it may just take a bit to adjust.

I just want to say sorry to those PR and publishers who have sent games to me in the last few weeks that still sit unreviewed. I am working on them slowly, but the backlog is about 8 games strong now, so trust me I will get to that game at some point. Being just the one guy and not really having those around I can fully trust to cover bigger releases, the stress of seeing them grow has made me stop requesting or emailing about many other games out in that time. So yeah, the reviews will come out in the next couple of weeks, and just sorry I couldn't get them out sooner for you. Trust me, it annoys me more than you when I put out delayed content.

Twitter people who have seen me go from being active to tweeting a few times a day, do not worry. Once I feel ready to be me again I will be back filling up your timelines with pointless stuff so you remember you follow me, to then unfollow me. Thanks to the few who got in touch via DM's too, it meant a lot when I was in a rough spot feeling like I had no one to speak with. Love you guys. I've tried to be me again on social media in the last week or so and I just don't feel up to it yet, so will take a break for a week or so and hopefully come back less moany and more myself.

See you soon,
Tony

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.

HXR Blog - One Year Old / Giving back To You Lot (GIVEAWAY)

A year ago today I decided to bring back Honest Xbox Reviews with the hope that people would actually come and read whatever words I typed up on review items that I got my hands on.  Like the little box on the side of the blog has said since this started, I know I'm not the greatest when it comes to forming words into a sentence, but hopefully, my passion and enjoyment of typing comes across in what I do.

I've been doing this now for what feels like forever, with this name being used on a website previously, and then Honest Games Reviews being my writing home. Sure this journey has had its ups and downs over the years, but I still enjoy getting to meet new people on social media and also offering reviews that don't hold back or tiptoe around something being utterly pants because it might end with me being ignored in the future

If you've followed me from day dot (I'm talking HXR first time around) you will know I always try to give back to those who support and re…
