Doom 64 is a first person shooter action game developed by ‘id Software‘ and published by ‘Bethesda Softworks‘. Doom 64 is said to be coming out the 20th of March 2020 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC. Now this game is a classic for sure and the demons are back. Let’s take a look.
Doom 64 is basically sort of still Ultimate Doom. If you know Ultimate Doom then you know what to expect. There isn’t that much to say about Doom 64. You literally fight and kill demons through 32 levels. Grab your shotguns, chains guns, plasma guns, BFG, rocket launcher and more and destroy all kinds of demons. The objective is to find and defeat the mother of demons (whatever that is) and off course stop hell. Can someone please explain why demons can be killed by an earthly shotgun?
Now there is a cool catch though. The developers of Doom Eternal are saying that if you pre-order Doom eternal before the 20th of march 2020 then you get a free digital copy of Doom 64. This is a very cool deal, not as good as the Doom 3 Resurrection of evil deal where when we bought the game, in the extras menu you had the option to play Ultimate Doom, Doom 2 and Doom master levels. Still a good deal though. Players can get two games for the price of one.
We checked out some Doom 64 gameplay and it’s what we expected and it’s definitely what you are expecting if you know anything about the game. Run fast and shoot, open doors and shoot, collect keys and shoot, pick up weapons and shoot, go berserk and punch but when that runs out you will shoot. You get it. Players must remember that like with other Doom games look out for secret rooms and areas that have powerful weapons, lots of ammo and even power ups.
Overall Doom 64 isn’t anything new to add on about. We do like the difference art style when you compare Ultimate Doom and Doom 64. The Unmaker is a powerful anti- demon weapon that is only found in Doom 64 and not the previous Doom games so players get a chance to try that thing out. The developers ‘id Software’ have done a good job with all of this. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to keep an eye out for this game. Now Doom 64 may be a classic blast from the past but this blast is far too small to phase… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is a new action zombie shooter game developed and published by ‘Rebellion‘. Zombie Army 4: Dead War is said to be coming out the 4th of February 2020 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Now zombie games are basically all about the same thing. Zombies are dumb and come at you in numbers. So let’s see what’s different.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is all about zombies. Players will continue the alternate history of the Zombie Army Trilogy. So to recap, zombie hitler has been defeated sent into Hell and his army lost. Suppose surprise though as the zombies are back. This time they want brains more than ever before. So it’s up to the player to face the horde once again.
Let’s get something very clear. It’s a zombie game so players should know what to expect. Expect a whole horde of zombies with off course some variety. Well in Zombie Army 4: Dead War players can expect shadow demons, grabbers, explosive suicide zombies a zombie tank and of course the armoured ones.
The melee has been boosted in Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Expect some powerful crazy melee weapons and even techniques like takedown moves, stomping on zombie heads and more. Remember the Sniper Elite series? Well you expect some stuff from there here in Zombie Army 4: Dead War like the slow motion of bombs, bullets and more destroy the organs, body and bones of the enemies. Witness the destruction.
Expect deeper character customisation and progression in Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Get upgrades for turrets and even the ability to take them with you. Level up slaying abilities to be that destructive power or be a serious tank who can take all the damage for your allies. Also, because it’s trendy, there are taunts, and emotes. Don’t forget the different outfits. Zombie Army 4: Dead War is all all about slaying both literally and in looking good. Get it?
We checked out some Zombie Army 4: Dead War gameplay and it’s what we expected. Sort of reminds us of Left 4 Dead and World War Z in some ways. We like that there is multiplayer and we like the weapon upgrading system like adding an electric mod to fire off electric rounds. There’s also a bigger horde mode where the longer you are alive, the larger the map gets which is interesting. Things look cool so far.
Overall Zombie Army 4: Dead War looks like another cool zombie game where you face hordes of enemies as a team, set up traps, turrets and use whatever you got to defend against the horde. Different types of zombies and enemies, melee, upgrades etc. You know what to expect. The developers ‘Rebellion’ have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker look will keep an eye out for Zombie Army 4: Dead War and see what it gets done in the gaming world. Now Zombie Army 4: Dead War may have a zombie hitler and zombie army but even that’s a complete joke if it faces… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Darksiders Gensis is a new action adventure game developed by ‘Airship Syndicate‘ and published by ‘THQ Nordic‘. Darksiders is said to be coming out on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS4 the 14th of February 2020. Now from what we hear Darksiders Genesis is suppose to be a bit of a crazy ride. Let’s take a look.
Now Darksiders Genesis takes place before the events of the original Darksiders game. Darksiders Genesis is also bringing in horseman Strife. Strife is here now so fans can be happy about that. The story basically is that War and Strife have got their newest assignment. Their target is lucifer, who plans to shake the balance by granting power to the master demons. War and Strife must hunt down the master demons and solve what’s truly going on.
So basically if you’ve played Darksiders before then expect something different. It’s a top down shooter combat game. So prepare for that. You’ll be fighting demons and angels, swapping between War and Strife depending on what’s best. You also get much stronger by acquiring creature cores, abilities, weapon enhancements and items.
We checked out some gameplay and it just looks like another top down action game. We like that you can switch between Strife and War with ease and mix things up. The action looked mostly smooth and the music is definitely good. We haven’t seen anything that makes us go “wow” yet but it definitely works well. The bosses though look like big trouble. Legion boltspitter looks like he could ruin your whole life but obviously the horsemen will win somehow.
Overall, Darksiders Genesis seems like an alright game. Fast, action packed and enemies not far away. The graphics look good for what it is. Sadly Darksiders is another game/project that gets inspiration, ideas and stuff from the Bible and gives no credit to it. We don’t respect that at all. The developers have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will just have to wait and hear how Darksiders Genesis is received. by the gaming community. Now Darksiders Genesis may have demons and monsters but those are a joke compared to… the Earth Walk!’
One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a new action fighting game developed by ‘Spike Chunsoft‘ and published by ‘Bandai Namco‘. One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is said to be coming out on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC all on 28th of February 2020. Now many know who Saitama is and what he does. Let’s take a look.
One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is all about Saitma and the One Punch Man universe off course but it’s all about 3v3 battles. So team work. Gamers can build teams made up from the characters of the One Punch universe. Full list, currently shown on the website, of the in-game characters are: Deep Sea King, Silver Fang, Hellish Blizzard, our guy Genos, Carnage Kabuto, Terrible Tornado, Mumen Rider, Vaccine Man, Saitama (off course), Speed-O’-Sound Sonic, Mosquito Girl and Atomic Samurai. Now it has been stated that there are more characters but not revealed. We know about a lot of them.
There isn’t much to say here. Seriously though, if you’ve watched One Punch Man then you know what to expect, powerful monsters attacking pretty much every day and heroes are needed to defeat them. So just apply the context of this game that it’s going to be 3v3 combat. This is game in terms of concept is similar to ‘Jump Force’ in terms of a 3v3 team battles. Which raises a question and big issue for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. Why are they doing this concept and gameplay. Why create a game that’s like Jump Force. Both are 3v3 and both have anime characters except Jump force has some One Punch Man and a whole lot more. Yes One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is solely focused on just One Punch Man but still not different enough. We need to see more.
We checked out some gameplay and it’s what we thought it would be. We saw some additional characters like King, Tank Top Master, Metal knight and Stinger. The combat seems combo based and has strong focus on character resource management. Keeping an eye on health, abilities, timing, weaknesses etc. It’s a team based beat em up game with your favourite or known characters of One Punch Man.
Overall One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows seems like a good game definitely. Graphics and sounds are very anime sounding and that suits it well given where it comes from. We just hope there is more to this game then just 3v3 beat em up. The developers ‘Spike Chunsoft’ have a done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to keep an ear out open this one. Now One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows may have Saitama but even he is completely weak when compared to… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Demon Pit is an action arcade first person shooter game developed by ‘Psychic Software‘ and ‘Doomcube‘ and published by ‘Digerati‘. Demon Pit is said to be coming out on the Xbox One 24th of December, Nintendo Switch 25th of December and PS4 the 17th of December all in 2019. It’s already out on PC. This game is suppose to keep the action going. Let’s take a look.
In the world of Demon Pit, players control a demon hunter. This demon hunter spent years in the mortal realm slaying and destroying demons and their kind. This however did not cleanse his soul. The hunter faced judgement and was judged… eternal damnation. So now it’s off to the pit… the Demon Pit.
Here in Demon Pit players must take on, battle and survive endless waves of demonic enemies. You will do this armed with a good amount of ranged weapons like flamethrowers, shotguns, grenade launcher, a machine gun, plasma gun (by the looks of it) and hopefully more. You also have a soul grapple which let’s you grab something and be pulled to it at extreme speed. You can us this to evade, close the gap or get to something quickly.
There’s more to Demon Pit. The level or pit you are fighting in is said to be constantly changing. So maybe things will be a flat terrain for now but later pillars might be a part of the arena, or maybe walls, or maybe elevated platforms or even a cage. Things won’t be the same for long. The best players can adapt to what’s happening.
It has been confirmed that there are 10 types of enemies and we have seen some of them. There’s a basic skeleton melee enemies, an armoured axe and shield enemy, floating skull enemies and a giant skull spider creature with guns on both sides. These are just examples. There’s also 7 different weapons. We named 5 earlier in this gaming blog post.
We checked out some Demon Pit gameplay and it’s what we expected. An honest game indeed as players get what’s on the box. You literally run around, avoid enemy attacks and slay all the demons that face you. Since Demon Pit is arcade style there’s a whole score system. You can get multipliers to increase your score by continuously kill enemies fast for example. So the arcade side of it is there.
Overall Demon Pit seems like a simple fun game that gets right to the point and what you see is what you get. You fight endless waves of demons and that’s it. Try to get the high score and there will be an online leaderboard too. The developers ‘Psychic Software‘ and ‘Doomcube’ have done an alright job with this game. It’s graphics are great at all, we expect more in 2019 even for a classic style game. The concept is simple. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what Demon pit does. Now Demon Pit may have endless waves of demons but even that isn’t enough to stop… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Beacon is a new sci-fi action rougelike game developed and published by ‘Monothetic‘. Beacon is said to be coming out on Xbox One in the last quarter of the year 2019, there hasn’t been given a set date though. Beacon is already out on PC the 27th of February 2019. Now this game has something interesting going on. Let’s take a look.
Now in the world of Beacon, players control Freja Akiyama who is a space privateer. She has a mission. Freja needs to find her crashed ship’s emergency distressed beacon. So it’s obvious that the player is stranded here as the ship crashed. When Freja came to and looked through the remains of the crashed ship, she finds what looks like her body. It is her body. Basically the ship also had a cloning bay. This means that when Freja dies she gets cloned and the clone continues on. This changes everything. A bit more on this later.
This world where you crashed on is an alien world and definitely a hostile one. So going around to find what you need is going to be problematic. You are armed though. You have your gun so you can fight back. In your journey you will find weapons and useful items. Not only that but here comes the interesting concept of Beacon that changes everything. Players will also be obtaining the DNA of fallen enemies. With their DNA, when you die, you get the chance to to apply their DNA to your own. This will give you physical mutations which off course gives you different stats, abilities and changes up the gameplay quite a bit. So every time you die, your nest run will be quite different.
This begs the question then, just how long have you been here? In Beacon, when you die a clone is made. Since you came to and found your dead body, that means you are a clone. Is that body the original body or just another clone. Does this cycle ever end? Either way this gameplay mechanic, where you can use enemies DNA to change yourself and get different abilities, is what’s going to make this game stand out. So how many different enemies are there, transformations can you take?
There’s a number of stuff going on in Beacon. There’s more than 75 different mutations. That’s good. There are unique weather types with storm events, so watch out for Tesla storms and polluted tornadoes. More than 75 weapons. 5 randomly generated levels so expect to go through a cryptic prison vault, a forest, swamp and more. More than 125 items and there are 4 item classes like one time use, passive, grenade mods and re-usable auxiliary. There’s over 50 enemies and 8 champion variants. There are different factions of enemies too like Native, Onyx, Prism, Solus and uncharted.
We checked out some Beacon gameplay. It does look cool. We really like what we see so far. We like the concept. We like that the different enemy factions will fight each other also which makes things more realistic and gives a better universe. We know there are huge boss fights like the excavation spider and the Solu hivemind. Variety is always good so the amount of enemies, weapons and mutations is very good. Definitely liking this. Beacon is fast paced too.
Overall Beacon does seem like a very good game. We definitely will need to see more gameplay but there’s enough information. The graphics are okay, we thought things would be sharper. Music and sounds are good though and we do like the environment designs of the levels. The developers ‘Monothetic’ have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker look forward to when Beacon comes on to the Xbox one. Now Beacon may have clones and DNA mutation but what’s more real and pure is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Terminator: Resistance is a new first person shooter action game developed by ‘Teyon‘ and published by ‘Reef Entertainment‘. Terminator: Resistance is said to be coming out December 3rd 2019 on the Xbox One and PS4 but the 15th of November on PC… in the US; however in the UK it’s released the 15th of November on the Xbox One and PS4. So different dates for the two locations. A new terminator game huh. Let’s take a look.
In the world of Terminator: Resistance things are taking place pretty much 30 years after Judgment Day (the fake judgement day). Terminator: Resistance is all about a new hero. This hero is called Jacob Rivers. He’s basically a soldier in the resistance pacific division. He isn’t anyone of interest as he’s not a high ranking soldier either. He’s just a private. Jacon Rivers learns that Skynet has marked him for termination as he’s declared to be the latest threat.
So anyone who has watched the Terminator movies and know about them can guess what to expect from Terminator: Resistance. Everything that takes place is leading up to a major league battle which will decide everything. You must decide the fate of mankind in this war against machines and off course you must destroy Skynet’s defence grid. Sounds familiar? Well you are getting the Terminator experience here.
Terminator: Resistance takes place in a post apocalyptic Los Angeles, you can explore the whole area, complete the main story which will help you move up through the ranks of the resistance. There’s also side-quests which are about helping your friends.
You know a future based game is going to have some cool weapons. Terminator: Resistance has a whole arsenal of weaponry but you have to earn them, either through trading or even crafting. In this world, you must search for scraps. What we can tell you though is that the weapons are based on plasma. There are some weapons that are good for just getting out there and shooting everything while others assist in stealth, sneaking around and even hacking.
The enemies are off course the machines. Players will face some well known machines like the T-800. Expect different skeleton looking machine monsters who are unforgiving and want you dead. Such is the world of Terminator: Resistance. Also there are a good number of enemies who are brand new as in you’re going to get a surprise when you meet them.
We checked out some Terminator: Resistance gameplay and it’s quite what we expected. A destroyed world with flames and dying humans everywhere. There are numerous machines who are merciless and you need to shoot them to death. Helping and finding survivors, uniting and search dead machines for parts and scraps. We saw the armoured spider and spider scout enemies. The gameplay looks good for a first person shooter.
Overall. Terminator: Resistance seems like a good game so far. It definitely does it’s job as a first person shooter but it adds a few extra elements like the stealth/sneaking and the scavenging with crafting. The enemies are a clear threat. The graphics look very good and the sounds are good too. The developers ‘Teyon’ have done a good job with this game so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what Terminator: Resistance has to offer. Now Terminator: Resistance may put up a fight but it doesn’t stand a chance against… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Tanky Tanks is a new tank action shooter game developed and published by ‘EpiXR Games‘. It came out the 8th of November 2019 on the Xbox One and not the PS4 or Nintendo Switch. It is already out on Mac and PC. There is very few games like this. We just had to check this out. Let’s take a look.
In the world of Tanky Tanks, players control tanks. What a surprise? You control tanks and fight other tanks in fast paced action. Well it can slow down depending on what’s going on and how you and your opponents play. There isn’t a story or anything as it isn’t adventure. Just turn on the game, control tanks and blow the others up.
The controls are simple, you control the aiming and moving of the tank differently so like a twin shooter basically. You have shots that do come back on like a cool down. If you rapid fire of all your shots you must wait a while before you can fire again, promoting more accurate firing and not panic. Your shots can rebound of the walls. So you can hit things around cover if you are accurate enough. Walls will get in the way and Walls and structures can get in the way and block your view of missiles or tanks behind them so be careful. You also get mines which you can plant to block of paths or blow up a target. Mines can be shot though and they will explode.
Now when you see gameplay of Tanky Tanks some gamers will get flash backs or remember another tank game. Ever played or heard of Wii Tanks? X35 Earthwalker does and he loved it. It was so much fun. Wii Tanks made players go through 100 levels of enemy tanks trying to take you out. The levels where different in design and some with a certain combination of types of tanks caused some real problems. There were tanks that couldn’t move at all but just fire when it was possible to hit you in some way. Other tanks were more aggressive and really knew how to use the rebounds. We hope that Tanky Tanks takes what was good about Wii Tanks and make something even better.
Tanky Tanks seems have to the same style in terms of gameplay mechanics. Tanky Tanks has multiple game modes like normal which is normal, invisible mode where enemies are invisible, bomb mode where you can only use bombs, speed mode where everything is twice as fast and there’s a few more. The types of tanks seem to be the same types too. (Update) We have played the game recently and it does remind us of Wii Tanks very much and in the good way. Tanky Tanks is definitely challenging and has some key differences.
We haven’t played solo mode yet but we did co-op normal mode and we beat all 50 levels on our first try. It wasn’t easy though. X35 Earthwalker and Diamondz L45 had the advantage because they are veteran tank players from Nintendo Wii Tanks. The tanks so far are in less variety, dumber but stronger. Nintendo Wii Tanks had brown tanks that couldn’t move, grey tanks that move and had single fire, green tanks with faster missiles, light green with multiple rebounding missiles and even more tanks like red, yellow, purple, white and black. In Tanky Tanks the tanks all look similar which is a downgrade. Tanky Tanks have tanks that are dumber, you can trick them into shooting a wall they are right next to to bounce the missile back into them. They are also slower to shoot in most cases. Tanky Tank have stronger tanks though as some tanks are bigger and take multiple shots to destroy. Some tanks have regular missiles while others have slower but bigger, stronger missiles while others have smaller high speed missiles that looks like a laser from Super Man. Overall we wish there was more variety in the tanks and come colour.
We not only checked out some Tanky Tanks but played it too. It’s still a lot of fun and co-op mode can get scary at times especially when your partner is dead and it’s all on you to get the victory. The game got intense multiple times and that’s a good thing, you should be slightly afraid of these tanks but get enough courage with your skills to get out there, dodge missiles and take them on. Tanky Tanks does force players to multi task. You must manage your tanks movements, control your aiming, keep your aim cursor on the screen (as it can go off), see where bullets are coming from etc. You have to focus! Another thing that Tank Tanks has that Wii Tanks don’t have is stage hazards. That’s right in Tank Tanks you can expect some levels to have natural obstacles. For example in some levels we saw basically pendulums or swinging axes. They block your missiles but will destroy whatever it hits, so don’t touch it. We also saw spikes on the ground that will destroy your tanks. Talk about mixing things up.,
Overall Tank Tanks is definitely a good game, we just hope that more work is done and added into it. Overall we still prefer Wii Tanks but Tank Tanks has their own thing going on in terms of multiple game modes, cooler mines, tanks with health and even a big boss looking tank is all great stuff. The graphics are very good indeed but the lack of music is strange. Eventually all you here is your tank moving then when you stop it’s dead silent. That’s not good. The developers ‘EpiXR Games’ have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker are looking forward to what more Tank Tanks has to offer. Now Tanky Tanks may have strong tanks but those things don’t stand a chance against… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Death’s Gambit is a action role playing game developed by ‘White Rabbit‘ and published by ‘Adult Swim Games‘. Death’s Gambit is said to be coming out on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch 2019. Is already out on PS4 and PC but we never heard about it while it was on these two. This game is said to be challening. Let’s take a look.
In the world of Death’s Gambit, players control Death’s right hand guy. You are the agent of Death. Sounds cool? Maybe, maybe not. After all what reward does a faithful servant of Death gets? Think about it. In this place called Siradon there is a big secret, a way to gain immortality. Now off course such a secret and mysterious place won’t be left uninhabited or unguarded. The player must visit these guys.
There are knights, beats, monsters and even more horrors. Don’t be surprised, after all this place has been described as an alien medieval planet. The battles are the challenging part. The combat requires precise actions and decisions. Think of it like Dark Souls. If you don’t time your dodges, blocks and attacks you can suffer and die real quick.
Now concerning the weapons, each one has their own set of abilities. So combine your weapon abilities with different equipment to find the style that works for you. There are many areas for you to explore. Death’s Gambit is an expansive world. There’s the obsidian vale, sanguine city, witch woods all containing some interesting characters who have stories of their own.
There are seven different classes for you to play in Death’s Gambit, multiple talents from the skill tree. You can customise your character with swords, scythes, halberds, bows and more. Spells and all.
There’s game modes like new game plus and heroic mode which is basically a tougher boss fight mode. There are side areas and multiple things for players to do. Developers claim Death’s Gambit is non-linear.
We checked out some Death’s Gambit gameplay and it’s what we thought it would be. From when we knew it was 2D we knew what to expect. There are some real dangerous bosses who will give quite the fight. There are huge monsters who will always look down on you while others are famous beings, practically legends. Each boss has their own trick for players to figure out and they force you to mix up what you do.
Overall Death’s Gambit seems like another 2D difficult action game where a number of players will most likely rage. The graphics are alright and the sounds are alright too. Again this is a game for specific gamers. Not everyone is going to be on this. We need to see something special to get X35 Earthwalker into this. The developers have done an alright job with this game. Now Death’s Gambit might have mysterious dangerous lands but what’s more dangerous is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Munchkin: Quacked Quest is a new action role playing game developed and published by ‘Asmodee Digital‘. Munchkin: Quacked Quest is said to be coming out the 19th of November 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. Now we have never heard of this game. So let’s take a look.
In the world of Munchkin: Quacked Quest, everything is silly and meant to be a joke. Even their websites keep mentioning laughing. There isn’t a story as far as we know. It just seems to be all multiplayer chaotic fun action. You and the other players will be facing numerous enemies and trying to grab… ducks? Wait… ducks? Yes, ducks.
Yes the whole Munchkin: Quacked Quest seems to be about ducks. Players must capture ducks and this is what players betray each other for… ducks. Players must capture ducks. It’s all about the ducks.
The dungeons are randomly generated so expect different things each time. Also expect the challenges to not be normal either. They are said to be different and crazy.
Now there is character customisation. There are four races to choose from and there’s four classes to choose from too. You can mix and match though so you could create an orc wizard, dwarf priest and much more.
A big theme in Munchkin: Quacked Quest is betrayal. Yes you are working together with others but at the end of the day it’s all about the ducks. Every player is out for the ducks but you need to make sure it’s you who gets them so remove and take out whoever stands in your way. This means you can throw your friends into pits, no regrets.
There’s treasures that you need to get to first, there are legendary weapons that will give you the definite advantage. One legendary weapon is called the “Rat-on-a-Stick”. No comment. So make sure to smash all the objects in the room in a hopes to find loot.
We checked out some Munchkin: Quacked Quest gameplay and it’s sort of what we expected but slower than we thought. The gameplay is silly, the universe is sort of wacky. Nothing special, nothing stands out but at the end of the day it’s another multiplayer game. It’s a local multiplayer game with big bosses like a dragon. So bring your friends and ruin some friendships.
Overall Munchkin: Quacked Quest just seems like an alright game for gamers who want something fun and silly. Nothing serious, nothing super competitive but just to have a few laughs. The developers ‘Asmodee Digital’ have done an alright job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to hear what Munchkin: Quacked Quest gets up to in the future. Now Munchkin: Quacked Quest may be about the ducks but what’s way bigger is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
