Review - AVICII Invector

Upon hearing about the release of Avichi Invector, I was always at some point going to give it a look, either via review code or picking it up by myself. Costing just £14.99, it takes a decent collection of songs from a Swedish DJ who sadly took his own life back in 2018. I won't sit here and act like I was the biggest fan of his work going in, but this game if anything celebrates his talent, and will also open your ears to some absolute bangers if you only know a few of his songs like myself. 

The game itself has a few little story like videos littered in between the six worlds that feature, with twenty five songs in total to play. The story might have some meaning behind it, but if it did it went right over my head if I'm honest. Each world you visit gives a different backdrop when playing songs, but your eyes will not actually enjoy it that much as they will mainly be focused on the play area. You do have a few sections in each song where you fly around a bit to go through a few rings. But, other than that you're very much tied down to the Guitar Hero/Rockband Guitar fret most of us are accustomed to in these types of games.
Three modes of play in single player, with easy, medium, and hard being the choices you have when you want to test just how good your reflexes are. Easy offers more and more of a challenge the deeper into the track list you get, with harder settings just throwing in more buttons and also less hand holding when it comes to where you need to be on the play area to carry on your button pressing streak. For me though easy was a happy place for me, and hard songs were okay in the early going, but much like easy mode became more challenging the deeper I went into the track list.
The game itself is pretty much what you would expect from a game in this genre. Press buttons when required to score enough to clear that level, with leaderboards both overall and friends visible too if that's your thing. Easy mode keeps things simple with a few button presses. Harder difficulty ramps it up by moving buttons around the field of play without any noticable prompts, and just adding in the Y and B button too. But I've kind of said this already. Do well and will also gain speed boosts which you activate by pressing RT, with this also throwing a multiplier your way for doing so when hitting any buttons while you fly through the track. That's pretty much it.
Local MP is here too for Upto four players, with each player able to choose what difficulty they want to play.
Overall: Enjoyed this a lot, purely because it opened my ears to a DJ I perhaps might not have bothered with outside of a few chart hits. This game will be great for people who enjoyed games such as Aaero, and even more so if they enjoy Avicii and what he had to offer. Those of us less educated out there on this talented man will get a fun time playing through a decent game while being brought up to speed with everything he had to offer.

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 Ven

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 wi

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.
