X35 Earthwalker Deadcraft

Deadcraft is a zombie survival action game developed by ‘Marvelous‘ and published by ‘XSEED games‘. Deadcraft is said to be coming out the 19th of May 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and PC. Deadcraft is not trying to be another zombie game. It has interested us. X35 Earthwalker will have his say. Let’s take a look.

So here’s the run down of what’s happening Deadcraft. It’s a world that has been completely ruined by a deadly virus. You control a guy called Reid. He is half zombie. Now being half zombie comes with it’s challenges. People may not like you or trust you. This means you can’t just live with humans in a colony really. Your survival is one thing. Survival. You got to survive. In this ravaged world. 

X35 Earthwalker Deadcraft

Now there’s multiple things you need too do to make that happen in Deadcraft. You can arm yourself, grab all kinds of weapons and get to work on all dangers that comes your way. You can also grow your own army of zombie followers. This alone is a very cool concept. It’s not just slay the zombies and it’s not just destroys the humans. You are in between the two. You can communicate and co-operate with the humans. This off course leads to visions, impacts and opportunities.

Remember we mentioned survival? Well. Yeah, they are taking that sort of seriously. Not as serious as Metal Gear Survive though. In Deadcraft, players need to get food and water. You will also need money too. So earn your living. We did mention that you can communicate and co-operate with humans. So survival does take some work. You can’t just sit there. You could always just take what you want by force.

X35 Earthwalker Deadcraft

Deadcraft takes things to another zombie level. You are half zombie, remember? This comes with abilities your own. They are quite comical. Some have to do with your messed up arm. There’s powers for sure. There’s also a crafting system too. You can build some real nonsense weapons and defence turrets etc. Watch the official trailer and you will see examples of that. This game has a Deadrising silliness but not as comical and silly. You can get creative, have fun and fight for your survival while keeping your brains. 

We checked out some Deadcraft gameplay and it’s what we expected for the most part. It’s serious but goofy still. It’s destroying zombies and crushing humans. Running an army. Fighting with allies, crafting all kinds of stuff and being cool while doing it. Just look at the gameplay for yourself.

Overall, Deadcraft seems like a good game. It’s definitely doing something different and we like that. Half zombie dude with abilities, trying to survive in this messed up world. Deadcraft has what it takes to explode. Deadrising fans should like this. We definitely need to see more of this game though. We need to see more of the combat and other factors. The developers ‘Marvellous’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what Deadcraft brings. Now Deadcraft may have a half zombie but that is not impressive when you compare it to… the ‘Earth Walk’

X35 Earthwalker Source of Madness

Source of Madness is an action rougelike game developed by ‘Carry Castle‘ and published by ‘Thunderful‘. Source of Darkness is said to be coming out the 11th of May 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and PC. Source of madness has got something going on here with it’s design approach. Looks different from others. X35 Earthwalker has his say. Let’s take a look.

Source of Madness is an action rougelike but it’s been described as a “side-scrolling dark action rougelite” game. Side scrolling is nothing weird so who cares but the dark action part is what should grab attention. Source of Madness definitely delivers with this. It’s a dark and horrifying world. Basically what’s happening is that you are a new acolyte and you head out on a nightmarish oddyssey. This is all set in a place called ‘Loam Lands’. This place is messed up. Like you wouldn’t want to live here, messed up. Yet here you are and expect darkness, evil and madness.

X35 Earthwalker Source of Madness

There’s so much madness in Source of Madness that there’s even a place in the Loam Lands, called the Tower of Madness. The mysterious citadel of the moon. Exploration is required and you need to brave the dangers. There’s so much dangers, ambushes and lots of monsters. They are designed to creep you out. Look disturbing, gross and like they will leave a cursed rash on you. Some described it a s lovecraftian inspired. Now check this out. Here’s the quote concerning the monsters, “The horrific monsters you face are never the same, concocted with procedural generation and animated using a neural network AI.” Think about that for a moment. If this is literal, that would be awesome and we would love to see how that works. This could be the big mechanic… if they get it right. 

X35 Earthwalker Source of Madness

Source of Madness is all about exploring, staying alive, fighting dangerous creatures and off course finding gear. We mean equipment like rings, equipment, robes and armour like stuff. after all this is a magical world. Expect magical battles and attacks. It’s not your simple stand still casting spells. It’s movement, action and pressure from enemies coming after you. Take a look at some gameplay and you’ll see what we mean.

We checked out some Source of Madness gameplay and it”s not what we expected at first. Source of Madness definitely looks like a good game. Very different too. Something new. We do have some concerns though. The visuals just alright in our opinion. Not impressed. There is some form of communication with beings in the game. There’s mysteries to uncover and understand. What’s happening, how did this all start? Is there a way to fix things? Players will need to find out for themselves. 

Overall, Source of Madness looks like it’s a good game. Looks like it’s setting itself apart from others. We like how the world is designed. It’s clearly fictional, loads of danger, magical and interesting. We like the style. We have some hope for this game. We do wonder about the weapons and variety available in Source of Madness. A game like this has to have brutal difficulty with an insulting mode for those who need it easier. They need to nail that new mechanic this game has. Do it right! The developers ‘Carry Castle’ have done a very good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep and eye out for this game. Now Source of Madness may have disturbing creatures but they don’t mean a thing to… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Elden

Elden Ring is an excellent game for sure. There’s no questions about it. FromSoftware did a lot of things right and does them well. We like the very big world of Elden Ring. We like the variety off enemies and the numerous bosses for you top fight, sneak around, avoid and even outsmart. We like that some enemies have certain weaknesses that can, with knowledge, be exploited. We like the variety to the lands in between. There’s different temperatures, levels of greenery and more. Yet even with all of that and more, the game still isn’t perfect. Elden Ring has problems… but here’s it’s biggest problem. Let’s take a look.

Quite simply it’s the strength build. Or lack there of. The strength build sucks!!! We hate it and it’s running the game for us. X35 Earthwalker himself is losing interest in the game because of the strength build. We don’t want to hear from those ‘know it all losers’ who have over 200 hours, done everything, have two giant super swords, strength stat at 80+ and that one boss who everyone found hard, they beat in two hits. We ain’t trying to hear from you sad lot. There’s no real reason to being a strength build. We started of with the strength and beat numerous bosses including margit the fell omen, renalla girl of the full moon, tree sentinel the tree hugger and crucible knight the scumbag (including when the knight teamed up with that beast boss). We did it all with the strength build just so you know that we have experience and did go far with the build.

When you look at the mage builds they are the easiest baby difficult off course but they are the most fun and coolest. They have over powered broken spells like calling down a meteor shower like attack. A huge kamekameha like magic beam from dragon ball z. You can bring forth a ball of fire looking like the sun, like you’re escanor from seven deadly sins. There’s all kinds of crazy magic that it’s no longer Elden Ring… it’s Final Fantasy XIIII. Now look at dexterity. It’s fast, swings fast, has more than enough time to avoid hits even after hitting. Plus they loaded with bleed effects which does crazy damage. Get the samurai class and dual wield the uchigatana and you set for the longest time. What does strength have? Think about it.

When you think of a strength type characters, you imagine that they are very strong, can take hits and stand up to strong enemies. Instead you have slow swinging weapons and their recovery time with such weapons are slow too, meaning it’s easier for enemies to punish you. Poise doesn’t matter in this game unless you are like new game plus 7 or whatever. Bosses attacks still rock you regardless. You don’t do amazing damage and you still die in three swings. Strength is slower than the dexterity builds, easier to punish than dexterity and don’t have as awesome weapons as dexterity. Also since you are investing points in hp, strength and endurance, you won’t have enough points in faith or intelligence etc to use those cool and crazy incantations and spells. All the really cool weapons with interesting effects require extra stats you wouldn’t invest in. Strength is boring (as Saitama would say). The weapons except for end game stuff are boring, you have all the disadvantages, poise doesn’t help. Strength needs some love. Developers did not balance things at all. We going straight to renalla to change our build. We are done with strength!

You might think this isn’t a big deal but that’s because you aren’t thinking deep enough. We don’t blame you, no one is as intelligent and wise as us, let alone X35 Earthwalker himself. When you are a strength build from the start and make your way through the game, you learn that you are basically playing hard mode and simple. Mage is baby/easy, dexterity is medium while strength is hard to brutal. So you are having the hardest time. On top of that, the majority of cool/interesting/epic weapons aren’t for you. Do you know how many times we find a new weapon or whatever, just to check it out and see that we can’t use it. We don’t get excited when a weapon shows up anymore. What’s this? A flaming super sword once wielded by the gods themselves? Can’t use it! X35 Earthwalker was stuck with the starting weapon for a very long time. Can’t use cool spells either. You get bored. Fighting bosses get boring too. The boss does its combo. You dodge everything, if possible, then there’s an opening so you swing once… ONCE. Then you have to back off or start rolling again. Why? Because if you take a second slow swing the boss would hit you before you have time to roll. That’s why. It’s dodge, dodge, dodge, dodge, swing, then dodge, dodge, dodge, dodge and swing again. That’s not really fun. It’s getting boring. 

Overall Elden Ring off course as said before is an excellent game. This is the biggest issue with the game in our opinion. It’s definitely negatively impacted our experience. Positive experience overall for sure. Enjoying the game but lately this big problem has slowed us down. Now Elden Ring may have strength classes but they are too pathetic for… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Trek to Yomi

Trek to Yomi is an action adventure game developed by ‘Leonard Menchiari‘ and ‘flying Wild Hog‘ but published by ‘Devolver Digital‘. Trek to Yomi is said to be coming the 5th of May 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC. We see the colour scheme, we see the samurai weapons and know what’s up. X35 Earthwalker always knows. Let’s take a look.

Trek to Yomi has a simple story concept. Players control a young swordsman named Hiroki. You made a vow to your dying master to protect your town and the people you love against ALL threats. So being a samurai and all, your honour is top priority. You must keep your vow… or should you? So yeah, grab your weapons, get tactical and fight for your life.

X35 Earthwalker Trek to Yomi

So don’t just sit there. You must get going. “Voyage beyond life and death” is how they described it. Hiroki must confront himself and decide his path forward. Quite the description. The fact that you must DECIDE your path means there are multiple paths. So is there a whole ‘your choices have consequences’ mechanic going on? When you go through this game, make sure to check out the environment and surroundings. Have you seen the rocks, the lighting and how the lights go through the trees above? Definitely take a look.

X35 Earthwalker Trek to Yomi

Trek to Yomi is also said to have camera angles and visuals to help create a “true cinematic” experience. Doing the whole old school samurai movie. So take note of those angles. Hiroko is doing all this with a huge burden. He has failed to keep the promise before. So get up and do a beer Jon this time. We are sure you not you noticed by now but Trek to Yomi is black and white. Games that go black and white have a heavy reason for it and are demanding to be taken seriously. We won’t yet.

X35 Earthwalker Trek to Yomi

We checked out some Trek to Yomi gameplay and it’s not exactly what we expected. Remember when we said that you must protect against all threats? We didn’t say armies. There’s swordsmen off course as that’s obvious. Samurai and blades and all. There’s also supernatural beings as well. This is a very good addition to the game. Just human enemies would be boring in a game like this. Adding supernatural beings does spice things up. So know we have to wonder what will the supernatural enemies be. We expect creativity and actually cool enemies. It’s Japanese mythology after all. We expect some messed up stuff. The animations are fantastic though. We are digging that for sure.

Overall Trek to Yomi looks like it’s going to be a good game. The combat reminds us of batman Arkham city. Multiple hits, counter, they surround you, they come at you one at a time. Yep, that style. This means timing is key and maybe being patient. This doesn’t seem like a hard game though. Might even be too easy. We will again say that the visuals are excellent. We liking how the leaves and trees look in the back. How the wind blows them. The developers ‘Leonard Menchiari‘ and ‘flying Wild Hog‘ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to keep an ear open for this game. Now Trek to Yomi might have samurai weapons but those things are useless against… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Bugsnax

Bugsnax is an adventure game developed and published by ‘young Horses‘. Bugsnax is said to be coming to Xbox and also on the Nintendo Switch on the 28th of April 2022. Bugsnax doesn’t really need an introduction really. It was talked about, quite a bit and wrongly made fun of. X35 Earthwalker knew this game wasn’t lame. Let’s take a look.

This will be a quick G-blog. Bugsnax is coming to Xbox and with a big update but more on that later. Here’s a quick story intro. The adventure of bugsnax takes place on Snaktooth island. The beings that live here are basically half bug and half snack… for some reason. Yes, you can eat them. We wouldn’t though. Basically Elizabert Megafig who’s an explorer, showed up at the island and is now gone missing. So yeah, go find her and watch out for the food creatures.

X35 Earthwalker Bugsnax

So expect weird characters, silly characters and funny moments. Use your wits and equipment to capture certain Bugsnaxs. You need to solve the mysteries of Snaktooth Island. There’s exploration required. People have spoken well about this game… only after people gave it a try. 

X35 Earthwalker Bugsnax

This isn’t just Bugsnax. It’s coming with a big update bringing new things. The update brings “around three hours of new story and quest content.” This island came up from the sea. So what’s that about? Also, this island for some reason has Bugsnaxs but they are “giant-sized”. They are much bigger than normal and can even bully you. We saw one bounce a person away. So watch out for burger Bugsnax

All Bugsnax players will also get a free new update: The Isle of Bigsnax! adds around three hours of new story and quest content where you explore a strange island that has risen from the sea, crawling with giant-sized Bugsnax.

X35 Earthwalker Bugsnax

We checked out some Bugsnax gameplay and it’s what we though it is. There’s definitely a lot going on in this world and the character interactions have a a lot of the highlights of this game. So don’t rush through anything. 

Overall Bugsnax seems like a good game. Not it’s not explosions and battle Royale but it has it’s own whimsical silly style. Now that it’s coming to the most powerful console, the Xbox Series X, you can now have the best Bugsnax experience. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to keep an eye on this game. Now Bugsnax may have tasty creatures but they aren’t as tasty as… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Winter Ember

Winter Ember is a stealth actin game developed by ‘Sky Machine studios‘ and published by ‘Blowfish studios‘. Winter Ember is said to be coming out the 19th of April on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC. Winter Ember is coming quietly and plans to stand out with subtle details. X35 Earthwalker likes good useful details. Let’s take a look.

Winter Ember is set in a “victorian-esque” world. Players control a character called Arthur Artorias. He’s described as a faceless man. He is on a mission. Hunting for answers and revenge. Basically Arthur has been exiled for almost a decade. He now returns to the city called Anargal. This is where it all happened. Where he was stripped of his family, fortune and past. It’s time for action. Maybe quiet action though.

X35 Earthwalker Winter Ember

Now there’s a problem. A group called ‘greater heaven’ have taken control of the city. This group is tyrannical. They are militant and religious. You are no match for them in a head up battle. So this is where the stealth comes into play in Winter Ember. Sneak along the beams of houses and buildings. Go from shadow to shadow. Camp around a corner like it’s Call of duty and then pick your moment to strike. Cut down the number of enemies before getting into a brawl with them. There’s a lot built around the stealth mechanics and factor in Winter Ember.

X35 Earthwalker Winter Ember

There’s going to be a number of places and things to explore. Even hidden passageways. So get exploring. Stop being a coward. Be almost one with the darkness. Those corners must be hugged. We do like what we are seeing concerning the arrows that Arthur can have access too. The arrow crafting system in Winter Ember is deep. It’s said that there’s over 30 different arrows for players to craft. For example there’s a water missile arrow which can be used to extinguish fires and flames which off course creates dark areas for you to sneak in. There’s arrows with ropes, so you can reach high up areas. There’s smoke arrows that can be used to blind enemies. What about a poisonous arrow? Well… get crafting.

X35 Earthwalker Winter Ember

We checked out some Winter Ember gameplay and it’s not exactly what we expected. there’s real combat. You can face enemies head on. Pick your fights wisely. There’s lots of mysterious to discover and uncover. There’s also lots of treasure too. You must increase your visibility by direct sight. If you haven’t seen it, then you don’t know what’s there. Peep through key holes to spot enemies who might ambush you. There’s three different skill trees: Stealth, utility and combat. There’s over 70 different active and passive abilities for players to obtain and use for their revenge. We do like what they have done here.

Overall Winter Ember looks like a good game. We like that Winter Ember is trying to stand out with details. for example you can knock out an enemy but then that enemy will eventually wake up. Instead you can kill the enemy by slicing their throat. They stay dead but other guards or people will see and be alerted by the blood stain or mess you made on the floor, wall or carpet. Characters actually recognise blood and that something is wrong. The developers ‘Sky Machine studios’ have done a very good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to listen for what this game brings.

X35 Earthwalker souldier

Souldiers is an action adventure platformer game developed by ‘Retro Forge‘ and published by ‘Dear villagers‘. Souldiers is said to be coming out the 19th of May 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and PC. This game looks like it’s bringing some battles. X35 Earthwalker is the master of battles. Let’s take a look.

X35 Earthwalker souldier

Souldiers has a bit of a strange universe. Not too strange though. Basically here’s what happened. You and your fellow soldiers re out fighting… for glory reasons. You all get sent to Terragaya. Terragaya is a mystical land that’s on the edges of the afterlife. Caught between the living and the fallen. So expect mythological creatures, expect death, expect enemies. Expect exploration and totally not natural stuff.  Your mission? To find the Guardian and therefore more on to the next world. 

X35 Earthwalker souldier

There’s three characters classes to pick from in Souldiers. Scout, Archer and Caster. Each one off course is different. Different weapons and therefore different ways of fighting. There’s magic, there’s archery and there’s shield and sword. the stats are health, attack, defence and agility. We are sure anyone can figure out what those represent. Right out the jump we are looking at the archer class right now. We hope the scout class (shield and sword) doesn’t become the plain basic one. Hopefully all classes become actually cool and fun to use. Powerful in their own ways. Oh and one more thing… the soldiers can’t die. How trippy is that?

X35 Earthwalker souldier

We checked out some Souldiers gameplay and it’s what we expected from a game like this. Souldiers has very nice animations. there’s multiple mechanics going on here in the combat. The Archer for example can fire different types of arrows. The arrows are on a cool down, so no spamming around here. You can upgrade your character and make your abilities and attacks more powerful. Enemies have the chance to dodge your attacks. So manage your mana, arrows and use your potions right. There’s masteries which is like an upgrade tree with mostly passive abilities to make you better.

Overall souldiers looks like a very good game. We like the environments and levels. Lots of colours around here. The enemies are aggressive and some have their own special abilities. A bat might yell at you… that’s scary. You can interact with the environment and some objects like turn a wind mill to produce wind to clear away poisonous gas. There’s lots of platforming and exploration required here so look around. The developers ‘Retro forge’ have done a very good job. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an eye open for this game. Souldiers may have undying soldiers but they will stay dead if they faced… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Aliens: FireTeam Elite

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is good hard fun. This is a game that has a lot going on and does many things well. If you just want straight action, explosions, bullets, fire and more then aliens: Fireteam Elite is for you. X35 Earthwalker, Diamondz L45 and N63 Prodigy have dominated the xenomorphs. Whats’s very good is that the xenomorphs fought back and has destroyed us a few times. We have written about this game before. Here’s a quick G-blog about this game.

X35 Earthwalker Aliens: FireTeam Elite

There’s many weapons and they actually function differently with their own strengths and weaknesses. This s a big deal because many games have lots of weapons but many are just an improved version of another making some weapons pointless. We aren’t talking about upgrades and progression like in a RPG. In Aliens: Fireteam Elite it’s different. The pulse rifle in the right hands is more powerful than the smart gun (both iconic guns by the way). The smart gun has smart aiming and allows you to easily handle swarms of enemies and frees up mental pressure that this game brings. Yet the pulse rifle requires good accuracy but when combined with the attachments and certain modifications, especially with the Gunner class, it dominates. There’s a strong rifle that behaves like a mini sniper rifle but if you can’t aim then that gun is trash. You see our point? If not then go boost your IQ.

X35 Earthwalker Aliens: FireTeam Elite

Variety is written all over Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Over 30 weapons, more than 70 attachments. The classes: Doc (Doctor), Gunner, Technician, Recon, phalanx and Demolisher are unique from each other and all are very good… except for two. The phalanx class sucks. It’s terrible. Unless you guys can show us something. We also aren’t a big fan of Recon. We see no real use for it. Just use something else. Yes some classes are better than others but they clearly do their own thing and we can win with each class. Players should get creative in Aliens: Fireteam Elite and find what works. We did and we definitely have combos and attachments to go with it.

X35 Earthwalker Aliens: FireTeam Elite

Don’t worry about not having a challenge. Aliens: Fireteam Elite has multiple difficulties. Normal mode is hard for many players. They can’t beat the game in the normal mode. There’s two more difficulties above that and they are brutal. We mean brutal. The xenomorphs are stronger, do more damage, can take more hits, harder to detect, the stronger units grab attacks can maybe even one shot you. Talk about unfair. You need the best weapons, good attachments and solid team work. If you lack any of those, you have no chance at all! There’s many types of xenomorphs. There’s said to be 11 different Xenomorphs. The big boss ones are just so stupidly annoying. 

Overall Aliens: Fireteam Elite is an excellent game. Multiple levels, high difficulty and can raise it to extreme difficulty where death is almost guaranteed. the horde is an actual horde at times. Many weapons, attachments, lots of combat, different xenomorphs and a whole lot of room for teamwork. Communicating at all times is key, covering your sides and deciding what is the bigger threat in the situation. We had lots of fun in Aliens: Firebase Elite. Lots of tough times too as the game is hard and can get you frustrated. Regardless Aliens: Fireteam Elite is worth playing and more should give it a try.

X35 Earthwalker Dolmen

Dolmen is an action role playing game developed by ‘Massive Work Studio‘ and published by ‘Prime Matter‘. Dolmen is said to be coming out the 20th May 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC. X35 Earthwalker being the smartest gamer to ever live, saw Dolmen and so now he speaks. Dolmen definitely looks like it could be special. Let’s take a look.

Let’s keep this simple for all of you, we are assuming, wonderful readers. Dolmen is set in a futuristic sci-fi type universe. Humanity has been colonising. They colonised several star systems. They also have space travel technology. They also have “genetic manipulation” basically making it so that humans can adapt to any planet condition. There’s an alien species called Vahani who are causing some problems. The key to all this is a crystal called Dolmen. Yep, we said it.

X35 Earthwalker Dolmen

All the action will take place on a planet called Revion prime where there’s an abundance of Dolmen. The Dolmen crystals are your top priority… well after surviving that is, get the crystals. It has been said that “Surviving is the last thing this world wants you to do”. Dolmen is one of those it’s easy to die games. Dying means your timeline gets eliminated. Exploration of Region prime is key. There’s many secrets for players to discover. It has been stated that you grow stronger with each battle. We would like to see how that works.

X35 Earthwalker Dolmen

There’s various weapons which can be used in combination with moves. We always believe that mobility is a big factor in battle. Players can go from melee to range, to melee once again. Of course one mode is better than the other concerning certain enemies. There’s also an energy mode which applies energy to your melee weapons causing elemental status effects. This should obviously be to counter the specific weaknesses of enemies. Now you can’t spam that as Dolmen requires the management of energy. Energy is also used for ranged weapons. So no spamming. 

X35 Earthwalker Dolmen

We checked out some Dolmen gameplay and it’s also going for that popular style of easy to die while some enemies are powerful. Think of Elden Ring how you can die so fast. Players must time their dodges, do high damage, get mobile, know when to be melee or ranged. The world doesn’t look that impressive. For the futuristic setting, alien race, advanced technology and the use of energy. We expected an impressive looking world. We have high expectations for Dolmen. So let’s be patient and see the improvements. The combat speed matters.  

Overall Dolmen looks like a nice game. Has the potential to be crazy but games have been failing semi recently so yeah, we will wait. When dealing with alien races you have full license to get creative. If the enemies look cool, we already on to something good; however the enemy we saw in the release date reveal trailer was lame. Didn’t feel threatened or impressed at all. We will leave this here. The developers ‘Massive Work studio’ have done an alright job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an eye out for this game. Dolmen can easily become special but currently it’s a common for… the ‘Earth Walk!’

X35 Earthwalker Godfall

Godfall is an Action Role Playing Game developed by ‘Counterplay Games inc‘ and published by ‘Gearbox Publishing‘. Godfall is said to be coming out on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Xbox One on the 7th of April 2022. Godfall is already out on PS5, PS4 and PC but we haven’t seen or heard anything significant about it back then. Godfall is suppose to be coming in hot. X35 Earthwalker will see for himself. Let”s take a look.

Here’s some quick small information concerning the story or lore of Godfall. The place of focus is Aperion. It’s “on the precipice of ruin”. Players control a valerian knight. Valerian knights are described as god-like warriors who can equip valorplates. Valorplates are legendary armour sets that make these knights become “unstoppable masters” of melee combat. Make your way through the elemental realms to find and fight macros. Who’s macros? Some dude described as the mad god. Yeah, go beat him up or something.

X35 Earthwalker Godfall

Godfall is all about big action. Godfall has been described as a looter slasher game. Godfall is also described as “fantasy universe filled with heroic knights and arcane magic”. Heroic knights tells us a bit about the game as knights are very versatile depending on the universe they are in but generally have variety options in their arsenal. We expect armour types, armour effects, armour designs and more. Arcane magic is a broader term. Arcane magic can mean anything, so we hope for a creative amount of magics and abilities. Big fantasy worlds must have large amounts of creativity. Not just the standard lame magic groups.

X35 Earthwalker Godfall

Now being a looter slasher means that there has to be lots of loots and things to find. Not every rpg game gets equipment and loot right. Drop rate, rarity chance, equipment effects, rarity actually being special, full pool of loot, can you get the same loot, can you do something with duplicates, equipment sets and do they have benefits, are equipped items visible and can that be toggled, how effective are the valourplate, how much difference do they make overall. We have lots of questions and don’t think Godfall will get it right. A game like this should have and does have multiplayer options. Godfall can be played solo, a couple or a team of three. Is there difficulty balancing for teams vs solo, are their benefits for playing solo and benefits for playing in a team. Or will team players always have the dominance and advantage over solo players? Games like Skyforge failed at this. 

X35 Earthwalker Godfall

We checked out some Godfall gameplay and it’s almost what we expected. It’s fast, heavy, melee action. You have to time the dodges very well. Can get punished. Feels like a faster Elden Ring in a way. We do like the combat and it’s a good speed but the enemies seem inconsistent. Now off course Godfall coming to Xbox consoles is a year or two later from original launch so things should be better now. There’s lots we have taken notice of like the attributes: might, spirit and vitality. We want to keep this short so we won’t dive into them but Godfall has lots of potential but clear concerns already. 

Overall Godfall looks like a good game and it certainly would benefit heavily from being on the Xbox Series X and S with how strong those consoles are. It’s strength is the combat and action. The bosses are humanoid but don’t come off as intimidating. More like a fair fight approach. The visuals are not impressive or up to the level that we expected. The particle effects are alright. The developers ‘Counterplay Games’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what’s up with this game and whether it’s coming in hot or not. Now Godfall may have so called god-like knights but even those are just brats in the eyes of… the ‘Earth Walk!’
