Train Sim World: Founders Edition Coming To Xbox One This Week

Every now and then I like a little change. Not too much, but enough to mix things up a little, and you can't get more different than taking control of your own train. Train Sim World: Founders Edition comes to Xbox One this Friday, with the game setting you back just £24.99/$29.99, which a blooming steal if you ask me.

Train Sim World is a first-person train simulator which will give players the experience of being a train driver, a first on the Xbox One if I'm not mistaken (watch me be wrong). Train Sim World: Founders Edition will teach you the basics via some quick tutorials, but with that out the way they will then give you a fully-functioning cab to control without any assistance. The more the weekend has gone I've found myself getting more excited about loading this up some point this week (just awaiting code). If you feel like seeing what this is all about at some point this week, be sure to check me out on social media, as there is a high chance I will be speaking about this quite a bit over there, with a review coming late next week.
These types of games tend to have a lot of buttons to mess about with, but the press release states that the game has an intuitive interface designed for the Xbox controller, so hopefully it's all pretty simple to pick up and play.

Service mode is one mode which the press release talks about, with this mode seeing a timetable based on real-world activities. Here you can carry out duties and choose to be either a driver or a passenger. You will have a timetable to keep and passengers to transport on-time, so a decent little challenge by the looks of things.

You can pre-order the game by clicking here to be taken to the Xbox One store.

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.

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…

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.
