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.

More gameplays on the way with me h…

Review - The LEGO movie 2 Videogame

I've lost track of how many LEGO games I've owned or reviewed in all the years of doing this review stuff. With each one not really changing that much from the last, but seemingly always being there for me when a gaming funk hit and I've just not felt like playing anything too tasking. The memory of the first LEGO Movie game has seemingly been lost in my mind when thinking about it right now while typing up this intro (good job I write stuff down) but turns out now checking the previous review link I thought quite highly of it. LEGO movie 2 follows pretty much the same concept as every other LEGO game story in the past, but let's explain that for the zero people that have no idea what that is, and also the shocking new story full of twist and turns with this new game (note sarcasm).

LEGO Movie 2 kicks off with cute aliens coming down and attacking, and it's up to you and your cast of characters and unlockable items to take them down. Honestly, the story is probabl…

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 …
