X35 Earthwalker The Callisto Protocal

The Callisto Protocol is a survival horror game developed by ‘Striking Distance Studios‘ and published by ‘Kraft‘. The Callisto Protocol is said to be coming out out the 2nd of December 2022 on the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC. The Callisto Protocol is aiming to set the standards and bar for survival horror games. X35 Earthwalker will know if it can succeed or not. Let’s take look.

The Callisto Protocol takes place on the moon… Jupiter’s moon called… Callisto, It’s the year 2320. So a little bit ahead of where we are right now. The action takes place in prison. Maximum security black iron prison. It’s another day in good ol prison when inmates start transforming into horrible creatures. There’s screaming, panic, running, death and chaos everywhere. Players control a scumbag called Jacob Lee. Surviving is priority one right now.

X35 Earthwalker The Callisto Protocal

Now off course everyone when they learnt about The Callisto Protocol or saw it, they thought of Dead Space. Understandable for sure. Gamers loved Dead Space. Gamers wanted a sequel. So many are welcoming The Callisto Protocol and treating it like the sequel they never got. Being compared to Dead Space is a good thing. It’s futuristic, a survival horror, dark, humanoid creatures, space suits and more similarities. In Dead Space it’s ‘shoot the limbs’ but in The Callisto Protocol it’s ‘shoot the tentacles’. We like that.

There’s off course something messed up happening in black iron prison. Inmates don’t just turn into monsters for no pure good natured reason. Discover these secrets which have been described as disturbing. The worst part?… Is that it looks like it’s under the surface of Callisto. It’s going to get dark. This means, expect loads of silence, jump scares and some… dead space. The official website describes The Callisto Protocol horror as “Blending atmosphere, tension, and brutality with terrifying moments of helplessness and humanity”. We did wonder about this. The balance between atmosphere, tension and enemy encounters is important. A game like The Callisto Protocol needs many enemy encounters but there needs to be constant tension and the feeling that you are really never safe. Jump scares have to be majority good ones with a few cheap ones. We will leave this matter here.

X35 Earthwalker The Callisto Protocal

We checked out some The Callisto Protocol gameplay and it’s what we expected. If you enjoyed Dead Space then you will most likely enjoy The Callisto Protocol. Unlike Dead Space though, The Callisto Protocol has more emphasis on both long and close range combat. You will need to get up and close to your enemies at time and literally fight back. The enemies are said to ‘rapidly evolving creatures.’ We want to see how they apply this mechanic in the game. Hopefully they do it much better than Phoenix Point did. Players will be proper scavenging for gear, weapons and even abilities. The Callisto Protocol has also stated it has “a pulse-pounding story where unspeakable horrors lurk around every corner”. We won’t them to stay true to this.

Overall The Callisto Protocol looks like it’s going to be fantastic game. The developers ‘Striking distance studios’ have to be trash at their job to mess this up. We like the tactical side of The Callisto Protocol with regards to the targeting tentacles, appendages, cutting off legs and destroying limbs. Players will need to not panic and have precise aim. We will see if The Callisto Protocol will set the new bar for survival horror or fail. The developers ‘Striking distance studios’ have done an excellent job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker are definitely looking forward to this game. Now The Callisto Protocol may have a deadly, dark, disturbing world but it’s still too tame for… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Hello Neighbor 2 X35 Earthwalker

Hello Neighbor 2 is a stealth ‘horror’ game developed by ‘Eerie Guest’ and ‘Tiny Build‘ and published by ‘Tiny Build’. Hello Neighbor 2 is said to be coming out the 6th of December 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC. Hello Neighbor was fun but disappointing in some cases. X35 Earthwalker waits to see if Hello Neighbor 2 does better. Let’s take a look.

Hello Neighbor 2 is described as a horror game but let’s be honest… Hello Neighbor isn’t scary at all. Nothing about it is scary. They should remove ‘horror’ from the description. Hello Neighbor 2 has the same formula and style, except it’s much bigger. You all have to go full detective mode, travel around the area, sneak, take, unlock and find to progress. It’s a mystery for sure as to what’s going on. There’s also a bird man. Yep. You heard right… or read right. It already looks like a complete step up from the first game. You love to see it. YES, YOU DO!

Hello Neighbor 2 X35 Earthwalker

Hello Neighbor 2 has a new enemy. The bird man. This guy is easily worse than the Neighbor. A much bigger threat. This guy is faster, far more active and has more abilities in an earlier demo. We hope his abilities carry over. From what we saw, of an earlier demo, the bird man is real fast and is always running around. He doesn’t even walk. He hardly stops for anything unless it’s to pick things up. Which is the other other big ability. He grabs items and will move with them. Either takes it in the house or… throw it at you. The bird man can hurl objects, that you can pick up, at you to know you down so he can get you. This guy isn’t joking… and neither is Hello Neighbor 2. This guy will throw trash at you to knock you down just so he can grab you. Again, this was in the demo.

Hello Neighbor 2 X35 Earthwalker

We checked out some Hello Neighbor 2 gameplay and it’s what we expected. We do need to see a more clear improvement of graphics and visuals. We will be keeping an eye out for attention to details. We like that there’s more going on. There’s police, residents, businesses and more. There’s even expansions on the way which would bring in new characters too. The bird man even has equipment. He will be on the hunt and you will notice it as well. A bigger world with puzzles must mean there are stuff to look out for. Collectibles maybe… or components. What exactly is it? X35 Earthwalker finds the answer obvious but hey he’s way smarter than the average smart person.  

Overall Hello Neighbor 2 looks like it’s going to be a good game. The last one did the story terribly and left it madly incomplete and unsatisfactory. Hello Neighbor 2 needs to do the story much better and we believe it will. There’s more to say but we are keeping this one shorter. Hello Neighbor 2 has more room now to work with. Hope the devs don’t waste it. the developers ‘Eerie Guest’ and ‘Tiny Build’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what this game truly has in store. Now Hello Neighbor 2 may have a bigger better world but it’s far to small for… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Gungrave C.O.R.E

Gungrave G.O.R.E. is an action shooter game developed by ‘Iggymob Co‘ and published by ‘Prime Matter‘. Gungrave G.O.R.E. has come out on the 22nd of November 2022 on the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC. Gungrave G.O.R.E. wants to be about that action. X35 Earthwalker likes action. Let’s take a look.

Gungrave G.O.R.E. has a very simple story. There’s a drug called Seed. Seed is incredibly dangerous and ruining the world. El-alcangel is an organisation that trying to destroy Seed. Raven clan is the organisation that wants to spread seed everywhere. Beyond the grave and Mika, thanks to quartz, learn that raven clan is in scumland. So they go there to finish them off. That’s it.

X35 Earthwalker Gungrave C.O.R.E

Forget about elegance and fancy stuff with this game. Gungrave G.O.R.E. is all about the action. The name even suggests this. So just get out there and start shooting. Many players love to be powerful, shoot and story whatever is in their path. Sort of like Doom Eternal. Gungrave G.O.R.E. just lets’s players have fun and shoot. Your character Beyond the grave is superhuman and invincible because after he died, he was revived using necrolization. Just accept it.

We won’t go into all the details but there are multiple significant characters in Gungrave G.O.R.E. and they stand out from each other. They certainly don’t behave the same way. Turonty, Ganpo, Yensen, Zell and much more.

X35 Earthwalker Gungrave C.O.R.E

We checked out some Gungrave G.O.R.E. gameplay and it’s sort of what we expected. Fire and blast away. There’s a simple system for everything in Gungrave G.O.R.E. The shooting system has auto aim and it applies to both enemies and destructible objects. You have shields. Shields work like shields in Halo Infinite. They can recharge if you aren’t taking damage for a while. There’s a beat count which measures how many times you have shot enemies. Keep the beat score high. The higher beat. score means more rewards after beating the level. You can knock on, dodge shoot, dodge, melee attack (funeral strike), death tornado which can be used to reflect missiles back or knock back enemies. There burst mode and storm barrage too.

Overall Gungrave G.O.R.E. does look like it’s a good game. There’s lots of mechanics in the game, special abilities and moves. It’s all about the action and it delivers action. There’s chains, slams and ultimate specials like Fury mode and demolition shot which allow for complete destruction and damage buffs. The game does look good, the effects like particles are very good, the action isn’t lacking and the main character Beyond the grave acts very stylish and relaxed about everything. Almost reminding us of Dante from devil’s may cry. Gamers like those types. The developers ‘Iggymob’ so far have done a good job. X35 Earthwalker wanted more action, hopes for more creative enemy variety and one more thing that we won’t mention. Let’s see if the developers can think good like X35 Earthwalker. Now Gungrave G.O.R.E. may have loads of action but it’s too stale for… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker The Awakening of Mummies

The Awakening of Mummies is an action puzzle game developed and published by ‘Virtual Arts Studio‘. The Awakening of Mummies I said to be coming out the 16th of November 2022 on Xbox, 17th of November 2022 for Nintendo Switch. It’s already out on PC off course. Puzzles and mummies. X35 Earthwalker hasn’t got anything against mummies. Let’s take a look.

The Awakening of Mummies is very simple. There’s a pyramid. There’s many sleeping mummies. Cleo is an evil pharoah and she has imprisoned mummies. Strange right? Anywho… you have to wake them up and lead them out safely. There you go.

X35 Earthwalker The Awakening of Mummies

So this is where players puzzle solving skills are needed. The Awakening of Mummies keeps it simple. You will end up leading groups of mummies. There are dangers of course. There are wholes in the ground and even spikes which will kill your mummies. Avoid them. Make sure to collect the correct runes of each mummy and then get them all to their own totems… at the same time (we hear). Then just open the door and proceed to the next chamber in the pyramid.

X35 Earthwalker The Awakening of Mummies

We checked out some The Awakening of Mummies gameplay and it’s what we expected but simpler. The mummies are kind of cute. Got cartoony eyes and physics, like when they step over a hole. Keep them safe at all costs. Also Cleo is just there. She’s just chilling we guess. She can be seen and shoes just watching things happen. When you successfully get the mummies out she gets angry. So why won’t she do something? We see what this game is doing.

Overall The Awakening of Mummies seems like a good game for how simple it is. It’s nothing complicated. If you want a nice simple puzzle game with a classic style but cartoony then The Awakening of Mummies does that. It’s either you like games like this… or you don’t. That’s all. The developers ‘Virtual Arts Studio’ have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker have conquered every puzzle he has faced. Now The Awakening of Mummies may have an evil Cleo but she ain’t a problem for… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is a good game. It has its problems and they are very clear but we are focusing on the combat. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin has fantastic combat gameplay and mechanics. X35 Earthwalker has gone crazy in the combat and off course mastered it. So we can take his word for it. We will keep this G-blog quite short. Let’s take a look.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin has fast paced combat. If you aren’t trash and actually play on high difficulty then this game will be difficult. Some enemies will trash you and even making one mistake can lead to death at times. Players will need to have good reflexes and a decent level tactical mind. There’s multiple styles, mechanics and abilities. If we dived in ands broke things down then this would be large G-bog for sure.

The main thing is that there’s multiple classes which can have different weapons from maces, swords, dual blades and even your fists. Each class you can enter the battle settings which determines your weapon (if your class can handle multiple weapons), combo abilities, equipment and command abilities like Light bringer. This is where all the customisation and style design takes place. Equipment level determines your character level. Combo abilities can be done in specific sequences of attacks and can truly lower enemies break meter. command abilities allow for powerful effect that can change the course of the battle. Command and combo abilities both require MP.

Now if you are a lower level than what the level recommends, then you will actually suffer in Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. The enemies will do much bigger damage but even worse is they drain your break gauge extremely fast. Once the break gauge is drained you are temporarily just sitting there. Meaning you get punished heavily. This is another reason why combat is intense. On high difficulties and being a bit under levelled or facing a really strong enemy, the battles become very intense. You have to focus, time your attacks and dodge/block everything. Getting hit once really costs you. Also the enemies break gauge is harder to reduce as well. Sometimes those fights are the better ones.

Players must be careful of their health and, manage their MP wisely as both can go down really fast. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin has multiple options for multiple things. You can straight up block or use the soul shield. Soul Shield lets you block an attack and restore MP while also increasing your max MP. You can also quickly follow up a successful soul shield with an attack. So why use regular block like ever? Well that’s because unlike soul shield, blocking can block against multiple attacks in rapid succession. Soul shield blocks that one attack. So any attack like a volley of projectiles counters soul shield as you block the first projectile but all the others will strike you.  Soul shield also drains your break gauge making stunning you all the more easier if used wrongly. So pick which defensive option based on the enemy and situation.

X35 Earthwalker Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin

There’s a few classes that truly dabble in magic. The mages are powerful and can bring out some serious effects and attacks. The sage is better as it can use both attack types of the mages. elemental attacks and powerful buffs for yourself and the team. There’s even an Ultima attack which completely destroys all things… most of the time. Strongest attack in the game and is a boss slayer. Then there’s the Ninja class which has resources exclusive to the class which can be used to activate a few powerful abilities and even perform elemental attacks or throw shurikens (regular and big). Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, smartly, allows you to switch between your two selected classes. So switching up the abilities and getting optimal is an option here.

Overall the combat in Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is excellent. The combat is the best thing about the game. When you master it, memorise enemy attacks and upgrade your classes, the combat rises to a different level. You end up really enjoying it. Soul shield, combo abilities and then finishing them off. By the way, the executions for these enemies are very good for the most part. Skeletons get stepped on, head ripped off and then used to destroy them. Flying bird hybrids get swung and smashed into the floor… hulk and Loki style. An aquatic enemy gets its back broken. Final Fantasy Origin: Stranger of Paradise do need to add more flavours to the combat and give players more free control when it comes to elemental attacks. X35 Earthwalker sees all the changes the need to make but this ain’t the G-blog for that. Now Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin may have excellent, fun combat but it’s still not up the level of… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Vampire Survivor

Vampire Survivors is an action rougelike game developed and published by ‘Poncle‘. Vampire Survivors did come out already on Mac and pc the 20th of October but it’s finally coming to consoles… Xbox on the 10th of November 2022. Players are definitely going to give the a try on Xbox. Alrighty then. X35 Earthwalker is the number one ranked when it comes too game. Let’s take a look.

Vampire Survivor shouldn’t need that much explaining. It became quite popular for sure. You control one of many different characters and face off against hordes of endless enemies. Well it’s not truly endless as you need to survive… Until Dawn. Get it? The game Until Dawn. Reference skills on point. 

X35 Earthwalker Vampire Survivor

Each character has different abilities and starting weapon. As you kill and survive, you can get experience points to level up and hopefully get new weapons. You can come across chests which gives you upgrades. The upgrades make all the difference. For example if you have the Bible item, which is already powerful, but upgrade it to its final form, it like the best at keeping enemies away. It forms a powerful ring around you harming everything. So yeah. 

X35 Earthwalker Vampire Survivor

Vampire Survivor is a difficult game… for average or bad gamers. There is a formula to this game. Some weapons are clearly better than others. Some Weapons upgrade final forms are clearly more useful than others. If you play enough, pay attention and maybe take notes then you will find the perfect ways to get all your weapons to the final form and dominate. We are glad to see that updates have come to the game and new things are here.

Overall Vampire Survivors is going to be good fun. The game relies on being addictive and pulling players in. You can’t just play this game three times and be done with it. You have to keep playing. There’s actual money to earn so you can upgrade your characters permanently. There’s combos to discover and levels to conquer. Also a grim reaper keeps showing up to kill soo yeah… watch out for that. The developers ‘Poncle’ have done a good job. We at X35 Earthwalker will give this game a couple of tries. Now Vampire Survivors may have all the ghouls but none of them are a problem for… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Skyforge

Sktyforge is a massive multiplayer online role playing game (mmorpg) developed by ‘Allods Team’. Skyforge is a big game and has a massive universe. X35 Earthwalker has played this game for a very long time and did multiple grinds too. So veterans we are when it comes to Skyforge. There’s good things about Skyforge but we wanted to do a quick G-blog abut a few negatives. Let’s take a look.

X35 Earthwalker has made many Skyforge videos, written about it multiple times and even did multiple livestreams. We know and can see all the good and cool stuff about Skyforge. It’s problem is that in the year 2022 with all the other mmorpgs, Skyforge look weak. Skyforge is like 90% grind and it does get boring real quick. This is such a waste as loads of potential is here.

X35 Earthwalker Skyforge

Skyforge has some of, it not the most impressive and coolest areas. Just check out the world in Skyforge and you will be amazed. When you enter the ‘divine observatory’ and then go to the park, you will be like wow. The lights, the city, the buildings and it’s so large… the view and what you can see. When you go to the port and see the sea and the massive ring like structure in the air, you have to wonder what is it. these areas and many many more make you wish you could explore these areas. 

So players need more areas and more freedom. The exploring actually has to matter. Skyforge just has levels with an A to B while Tera and Black Desert have full areas that can be basically fully explored. The classes are not balanced and some need to be reworked or much stronger. The necromancer class is trash. Hate it. Not enough damage and easy to be killed. Gunner does too little damage for what it is. It’s suppose to be a powerful big gun heavy firepower but it’s weaker than a tank class. The paladin class is so strong even though it’s suppose to be a tank, not damage. Fix the classes.

X35 Earthwalker Skyforge

The power levels need to not only be more obvious in combat but better explained. Skyforge is also known for being cryptic. Many players had to go online to learn crucial and some basic stuff about the game. Like how to get stronger. X35 Earthwalker made his return to Skyforge and aimed to increase his might. He rose by a lot actually but still feels weak in combat. Minion enemies are still doing good damage and capable of killing. Unless you go into your junior god form, you will get washed by your enemies. This includes giant rat creatures. 

X35 Earthwalker Skyforge

It’s gotten crazy. Some levels are clearly hated and boring. Get rid of them. You have no choice concerning which level or mission in the directives. The draconian enemies has that one unit who goes active camouflage Halo style and when it’s like that it can’t be targeted. It’s immune to almost all forms of damage and gets to run away from the fight. It’s not a difficult enemy but an annoying enemy. It wastes your time. Get rid of that enemy. It’s smaller stuff like that as well. Fix the whole story and campaign issue to remove confusion. There’s no real story in Skyforge. Black desert and Tera have one and it’s more fun and engaging. Skyforge still has the “welcome… now be free approach” with no information.                                    

Overall Skyforge got a lot to work on. They ned to improve visuals, frame rates do the changes we mentioned and off course more. We would say more but we are keeping it short. Currently both Tera and Black Desert are better games without question. The modern trailers for this game are cool for sure but the gameplay ain’t as clean or good as the trailer. We want Skyforge to be a much better game. Developers, either make it happen or watch the slow fade continue. Now Skyforge has junior and elder gods but they are mortal peasants compared to… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Counterattack

CounterAttack is a side scrolling shooter developed by ‘Relative Games‘ and published by ‘Relative Software‘. CounterAttack is said to be coming out the 5th of November 2022 on the Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One. counterAttack is already a released game on Linux, Mac and pc. CounterAttack is coming to consoles… the Xbox Series X. X35 Earthwalker is the best in the gaming industry. Let’s take a look.

X35 Earthwalker Counterattack

The story here in CounterAttack is simple. Earth is under attack. So defend it. Basically. The enemies this time are ‘Automations’. Created by humanity themselves. They have rebelled against us and now we got a problem. The solution is to fight back with the ‘Experimental Space Fighter Program’. Basically pilots who pilot powerful space ships made for combat. Blast away, evade incoming fire and try to survive. You know the drill.

CounterAttack has an amazing feature that many other games don’t have and that is… local co-op! So locally you can do 1-4 and online you can do 2-8. The amount of good games that don’t have local co-op is pathetic. A game like this does need local co-op. So  gather friends and family and go blast some ‘Automations’.

X35 Earthwalker Counterattack

Each pilot is different as they have their own ship and unique ultimate weapon. So check them all out first. Carl has the Plasma Strike, Biff has the Big Biff Laser, Joe has Overcharge, Jinx has the Hack Wave, Ayumi has the Tactical Nuke, Sarah has the Quantium Shield, Marcus has the Mesonwave and Sloane has the Fighter Squadron. So yeah, Looking forward to finding out who has the best ultimate weapon and who is the most versatile in use.

X35 Earthwalker Counterattack

We checked out some CounterAttack gameplay and it’s what we expected. The graphics and visuals are not very good though. It’s the simple style that they went for. Gameplay is more important though and that’s definitely there. You can unlock upgrades to make you more powerful. Enhance your ship and maybe do it your way. Equip attachments to basically create new weapons as in how they function. We hear there’s over 500 attachments concerning your ship. There’s even 3 endless survival modes. Sounds like quite a semi packed game.

Overall CounterAttack sounds like a very good game. CounterAttack is cross platform for multiplayer. This means Linux, Mac, pc and now off course, the best, Xbox. The story mode has 32 levels. There’s even a level editor, so players can of crazy with that. Medium high levels of customisation. The variety of enemies is a big factor that we need to see. The developers ‘Relative Games’ have done a good job with this game. X35 Earthwalker himself will see what becomes of this being on console. Now CounterAttack may have 8 different pilots but all of them together accomplish nothing against… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Signalis

Signalis is a survival horror game developed by ‘rose-engine‘ and published by ‘Humble games‘ and ‘Playism‘. Signalis is said to be coming out the 27th of October 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC. Signalis is here to bring a new dark adventure. It’s cool to see new games try things out and bring their mix to it. X35 Earthwalker notices such things. Let’s take a look. 

Signalis is set in a dark and dangerous world. Mysterious world too but let’s calm down for now. Players control a lady called Elster. She’s described as a “Technician Replika”. Her goal? To find her “lost dreams” and lost partner. Sounds strange but wait until you see what’s happening.

X35 Earthwalker Signalis

We hear that Signalis has “cosmic dread” and not just survival horror but ‘classic psychological survival horror’. This makes a difference as horror and psychological horror have clear distinctions. We have spoken about this multiple times already so go read our previous G-blogs. Psychological horror games better deliver.

X35 Earthwalker Signalis

There’s puzzles and mysteries to solve and understand. It’s not just kill monsters and manage your resources. This is a cold world and players will need to explore the derelict spaceship. It’s a “doomed facility” and there’s another secret beneath it. Now off course Signalis is a survival games so managing your weapons, resources, ammo etc is a big factor and we hope that Signalis actually balances the difficulty and level of resource management to create a good and difficult experience.

We checked out some Signalis gameplay and it wasn’t really what we expected in terms of the camera view and art style. We do like how dark the game is. They going for some atmosphere round here. We see the Dead Space stomp attack for enemies on the ground. There’s multiple weapons like automatic weapons and even a shotgun. There’s always a shotgun. Signalis seems to actually have something going on here. 

Overall Signalis seems like a good game. There’s a cool design style here. This game isn’t our style. There’s off course many who will be into this. The developers ‘rose-engine’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep man ear open for news concerning this game. Signalis may have a cold world with mysteries but it would be solved instantly by… he ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Great Games

X35 Earthwalker being the greatest and smartest gamer and person on earth, has off course come across many games. Not all good games got the spotlight. Some were under the radar and just didn’t really get noticed. This time X35 Earthwalker just wanted to go over a few games briefly. So they get mentioned and hopefully bring up some good memories for other gamers. Let’s take a look.

Now off course there are tons of good games and many great games but we can only choose a few for this G-blog. Now these aren’t the best games or games that defined an era or whatever. Just good games we remembered when we sat down for a moment and did some casual thinking. 

World of Van Helsing Deathtrap. Now this X35 Earthwalker and this game got way back. You like tower defence? Yah! You like facing enemies head on? Yah! Then World of Van Helsing Deathtrap is for you… probably. It’s a very good game and we spent hours in it. There’s lots of levels and challenges. Your character gets in the fray and fights the hordes that come along with the towers you build. Many towers with different effects and elemental attacks. There’s many, many different enemies, including champions and worst of all… the… the lord of the swarm. The lord of the swarm will NOT be talked about but let’s just say that it’s arrival is ALWAYS announced. We might come back and try this again.

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is another good game from the past. This isn’t a big game but quite a big adventure. You go through 5 completely different areas with five completely different characters weilding ‘V’ (roman numerical) different factions of basic, elite and champion units. There’s numerous strategies and builds you can run in battles. Players must align three of the units by matching colours to create attack formations or walls. Move troops around, delete some and call in more to get as much alignment and links as possible. We have had multiple battles and X35 Earthwalker defeated many more experienced higher level players, like in the video above. This game is good fun and has a challenging story mode. The story difficulty is old school and gets real hard towards the end, to the point where it’s actually unfair. There’s unlockable characters and units to find and earn through the story too. You got to love it.

Who likes explosions? Saying yes doesn’t make you a terrorist. More likely means you like Mega bomberman. We do. Bomberman Battlefest was at the time the best bomber man game. Multiplayer was crazy. Lots of room for games with the family, the friends or even online. Off course there isn’t anyone online anymore but in the past there was and some players were dedicated Bomberman players. We even faced a dude with a jester hat who when had the remote control bombs was almost unstoppable. Bomberman Battlefest brings back the classic bomber man gameplay and adds the modes and items. The different types of bombs are here off course like pass through bomb and bouncy bomb. There’s even the dangerous bomb which at max strength covers basically a quarter of the screen. There’s team modes, keep the crown and more. The CPU are not bad either. At the highest difficulty, they can be a problem from time to time.

Here’s just three games that came to our mind during that quick think. World of Van Helsing Deathtrap, Might & Magic Clash of Heroes and Bomberman Battlefest. These are also games that you can come back to and not get bored. They are that good or fun. Now these games may still be fun and hold up but they aren’t as fun as… the ‘Earth Walk!’
