Lets Play: Override: Mech City Brawl

Love robots? Love fighting games? Well we have just the game for you! It’s called Override: Mech City Brawl and it is a LOT of fun! We suggest that you mainly play with friends as it’s a lot more enjoyable with a buddy than without. Don’t have a buddy in the house with you? Fear not as there is online multiplayer to get your robot beat em up fix!

Features

There are a rang of different mechs to take a hold of. Like many fighting games, each character has their own play style, special moves and finishers. The environments that you fight in are totally destroyable too, therefore you’re able to completely obliterate entire cities on your quest to become the king of the mechs! Especially since your fists are the size of skyscrapers!

There are a total of 12 characters that you can play in and a whole host of famous cities to duke it out in. Such as Tokyo and San Francisco, countries also include Egypt and Mexico, quite the mix of environments!

As well as multiplayer users are also able to fight in co-op mode. Sounds weird doesn’t it? A co-op mode on a fighting game. Tag Team mode? Nope. Something very very different and very very cool, if we say so ourselves! In co-op mode 2-4 players take control of one part of a mech! Speaking of mechs, they are fully customizable to whatever you desire.

Story mode takes you along a journey to defeat the alien invasion and save the world, so you got to use the same drill-powered horns or old fashioned mouth lasers that you do to defeat your foes in multiplayer to help save the world in story mode.

(Override: Mech City Brawl)

First DLC

Following the launch of Override: Mech City Brawl, Stardust a downloadable DLC character, the games first post-launch DLC will bring this incredible mech to gamers. The mech has a penchant for posing extravagantly and kicking up hooves of steel, unleashing an all manner of aerial launches and sassy shooting stars.

Owners of the Super Mega Charged edition of Override: Mech City Brawl will get this character for free! As well as Stardust, any future mechs released, owners of the Super Mega Charged edition will also recieve them for free. If you purchased the normal edition it will cost you £3.29, Stardust will come to consoles on December 14th.

Overall this game is tons of fun and a very unique spin on the fighting genre. We especially liked the co-op mode and found it challenging yet tons of fun. If you’re looking for a breath of fresh air in the beat ’em up genre, look no further than Override: Mech City Brawl!

Action Games

 

Action games are the biggest sellers for all games consoles, including the PS4. This is because there is so many that can be said to be adventures, and some of them are exclusive to this console.

 

Street Fighter, Persona, The Last Guardian, Uncharted, Bloodborne, Spider-Man, Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War are just a few of them, there are many more that you can only play on a PS4.

 

Call of Duty, Doom and Fallout are among the ones available in formats for other consoles, but that does not detract from what great games they are.

Another incredible game that would be perfect for stockings this year is Strange Brigade. This game is fun, fun, fuuuuun!! It’s very enjoyable by yourself defeating hordes of the undead. However, get a crew together and this levels of excitement and enjoyment go through the roof!

The graphics draw you in to a world that is full of might magic and mystery. Yet at the same time having an underlying notion of danger when the undead appear. You know you’re in danger! Yet the locations are so pretty!

What makes Strange Brigade different to many other co-op games available today is that the levels and the game will change slightly depending on the numbers in your team.

Nintendo are calling the cardboard kits, ‘Toy-Cons’ and are designed to be solely used with the Nintendo Switch. Just by following the onscreen instructions that are displayed on the Switches touchscreen.

The Toy-Cons are so versatile that you can either use the Toy-Cons independently of the screen itself and you watch what’s occuring on screen. I.e: Fishing. Where all the computing is done inside the joy-con controller, or by using the whole console itself to find new ways to play! An example of this would be the use of a motorbike, whereby the switch is placed in the center of the ‘Toy-Cons’ and ‘Joy-Cons’ are placed either side and the accelerometer acts as a steering mechanism.

The most impressive of the lot was the use of a HUGE contraption, with the Robot ‘Toy-Con’. This cardboard accessory is HUGE and is placed on a users back and utilises cables to detect a users movement. (Read More) (Purchase)

Netflix On Sky

Netflix On Sky Is Here!

From today, if you are a Sky Q customer you can sign up to a new service. A service called ‘Ultimate On Demand’. It features Sky’s existing catch up and box set services, plus Netflix! Therefore bringing 500 of the best UK and US series, along with the full Netflix service – offering you the ultimate TV binge-watching bundle. Netflix on Sky is looking like quite the offering!

“We want Sky Q to be the number one destination for TV fans. Partnering with Netflix means we will have all the best TV in one great value pack, making it even easier for you to watch all of your favourite shows”. Stephen van Rooyen, Chief Executive Officer, Sky UK and Ireland.

Netflix on Sky costs an extra £10 a month if you want to join. But you’ll receive all of Sky’s ‘On Demand’ stuff as well. Like Netflix’s £10 package you’ll also be able to stream Ultra HD content up to four concurrent screens. However, if you only have Sky Q’s Entertainment subscription, you’ll only receive the standard Netflix plan. No 4K content and 2 screens, this will cost the regular £7.99. The Netflix subscription through Sky is a 31 day rolling contract and payment for ‘Ultimate On Demand’ will be added to your monthly Sky bills.

“Innovation is at the core of Netflix. We are delighted to partner with Sky to offer fans a new and exciting way to access the best of entertainment from around the world.” Chris Whiteley, Director Business Development UK/IE, Netflix

Existing Netflix Susbcribers

If you already have both Netflix and Sky you can merge or move your subscription into one. You can simply sign into Sky Q’s own Netflix app. This will help many users who have Netflix and Sky as by amalgamating the services it means you don’t have to load up two separate apps. Nor do you have to have a smart telly or any other type of device that has Netflix on it. Existing Netflix subscribers will keep their profiles and their recommendations and ‘continue to watch’ shows. Much like how it works already when you watch on various Netflix-supported devices. Furthermore, recommendations through “Ultimate On Demand” for both Sky shows and Netflix shows will share the spotlight on Sky Q’s homepage.  Plus if you have both services you will have a lot more content to pick from! Save a bit of money (If you were paying for both already) and get tons more content as well! What’s not to lose!

However if you are a Sky+ customer you will have to upgrade your current Sky subscription to Sky Q to access Netflix on Sky. Consequently to access the Ultra HD content on Sky Q, customers must have a 2TB Sky Q box, and a “Sky Q Experience” (previously Q Multiscreen) subscription.

Customers can sign up to ‘Ultimate On Demand’ here
