Dead or Alive 6

Dead or Alive 6 is the latest action fighting game, in the Dead or Alive series, developed and published by ‘Koei Tecmo Games‘. Dead or Alive 6 is coming out the 15th of February 2019 on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. What will the latest Dear or Alive game offer? Let’s take a look.

Dead or Alive has been a long running series. There has been lots of discussions and forums concerning Dead or Alive 6. What we at X35 Earthwalker hope is that the developers focus on making good mechanics, balancing everything as best as possible and throwing in some new things to make everything exciting. Developers have to know when to it’s time to listen to fans for feedback and when to go ahead with what they wanted for their game. 

Dead or Alive 6

Now when it comes to the story of Dead or Alive 6 that’s quite complicated and all over the place. Not to mean that it’s a bad story, but it’s like Tekken, where every character has their own story and something going on. For example Helena who is the president of the new DOATEC is threatened by a person who has special powers. Kasumi left her clan and is now a runaway ninja who’s secretly living in a mountain village. So you’ll have to play as the characters to learn and see what’s going on, which isn’t a bad idea.

Dead or Alive 6’s fighting mechanics is based on a triangle system. Throws, strikes and holds. Holds beat strikes, strikes beat throws and throws beat holds. If you successfully land a attack on the type it is strong against then you deal more damage and is counted as a hi counter. A completely new system is the break gauge system. The break guard is a new special attack meter that gets filled up when landing or taking hits and even blocking. Players can use the break gauge to execute moves like the break blow and break hold. The break hold is the strongest hold in the game and can return lower, middle and upper attacks. The break blow can parry an strike while delivering a powerful strike. There’s the fatal rush is basically four punches or kicks stringed together as a combo.  

Dead or Alive 6

In terms of the characters, there are three new ones shown on their official website while hinting there is more. They are Kokoro, La Mariposa and Nico. La Mariposa, the ‘Immortal Butterfly’ is a luchadora wrestler excels at Aerial attacks and having tricky movements. Nico, the ‘lightning Technomancer’ is naturally skilled at martial arts and has three EMF rings that boost her speed and attacks. Kokoro, the ‘Ba Ji Dancer’ specialises in Ba Ji Quan using mid range elbow and palm thrust attacks. Watch out as she also has number of throws that could mess you up. The variety amongst characters so far look good. 

In terms of the stages, in Dead or Alive 6, there are some and they look very good. There’s ‘The Muscle’ which is a large wrestling ring which as the words muscle spirit on the walls of the building. Didn’t Zangief talk about muscle spirit in Street Fighter V. There is ‘Lost Paradise’ is basically a cool jungle setting with some unfinished wooden structures around as well. There’s even a dinosaur in the area too. ‘Forbidden Fortune’ is a old pirate ship that has bones and a lot of history. These ruins are not safe and that’s a fact. The ‘DOA’ colosseum is new, ready looks great. The roaring fans cheering for their fighters and ring ropes that have some hot consequences for whoever touches them. ‘Zero’, research facility, ‘Miyabi’, an old street in a Japanese village and ‘Hidden garden’ a secluded and calming spot are all new and ready for fighters.

Dead or Alive 6

We checked out some Dead or Alive 6 gameplay and it’s definitely a step up from the last ones. There are even danger zones in some stages. These zones are bad news for any fighters who get knocked into them as some animation takes place dealing that fighter big damage. This reminds us of Injustice 2 and their stage animations. For example, remember that Lost Paradise place we mentioned well that stage has a danger zone and it’s a large dinosaur that attacks which cause an explosion that deals bit damage. Another stage has what seems like a kraken which uses it’s tentacles to attack fighters. These are definitely worth using against your enemies.

Overall Dead or Alive 6 seems like a good game so far. The graphics are very good and how the stages look very detailed. The sounds are good too. We like how the fighters have varied fighting styles with some real martial arts like Jeet Kune Do, T’ai Chi Ch’uan and Taekwondo. The developers ‘Koei Tecmo Games’ did a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker look forward to seeing fully what Dead or Alive 6 has to offer this time. Now Dead or Alive 6 may have a fancy tournament but even that is completely lame when compared to… the ‘Earth Walk!’

My Hero One's Justice

My Hero One’s Justice is a new action fighting game developed by ‘Byking‘ but published by ‘Bandai Namco‘. My Hero One’s Justice is coming out the 26th of October 2018 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. Fine we’ll say it… Plus ultra. Let’s take a look.

If you couldn’t figure it out (get out from under your rock) My Hero One’s Justice is a fighting game of the popular anime called ‘My hero academia‘. That’s right so all the popular characters, both hero and villain are here and ready to clash big time. Is there a story yes, and players can experience both sides. Basically players must fight for the justice you want. So if what you want is for the heroes to defend those in need and prevent evil or be the source of evil and cause massive destruction, then well you must fight for it.

My Hero One's Justice

So pick the character you want and bring your justice to life in My Hero One’s Justice. Off course if you are Tomoura shigaraki and want to cause trouble then expect All might and Izuku Midoriya as obstacles. Also if you are a hero like Shoto Todoroki and want to save the day well, what makes you think the bad guys will let you? So expect many characters like Shota Aizawa, Tenya Lida, Ochaco Uraraka, Katsuki Bakugo, Chizome Akaguro (hero killer stain), Himiko Toga, Dabi and more. Players can even play as Endeavor who is available only to those who pre-order. 

Now players can use almost anything in the battle field to their advantage. For example the environment is destructible so destroy buildings and walls to make extra paths, cover to use or to extend combos. So even get use to using the buildings and walls. My Hero One’s Justice also allows sidekicks. You can have two sidekicks and like in other beat em up games can be used to make powerful attacks, extend combos, interrupt enemies or even as a distraction. Strategy is needed here so experiment and find out what works.

My Hero One's Justice

Off course a fighting battle game like this will have online combat. So Detroit smash heroes and villains from around the world to make it clear who’s better. If you are really competitive, then check out the leaderboards and fight your way to the top earn the right to call yourself the number one villain or hero. Not that it matters as neither number even stands a chance against X35 Earthwalker. Rumour has it that both All might and All for one got one shotted by X35 Earthwalker himself.

We checked out some gameplay and it looks fast paced. Characters can dash around; however Tenya’s dash lasts longer and stronger (as it should be). Players as we mentioned can fight along walls, get into the air, evade projectiles, combo like crazy and use powerful ultimate moves (not sure if they are called ultimate or not). My Hero One’s Justice so far does look very good, fun and action packed indeed. It is also quite clear that there are layers to the strategy and things can get sort of deep. So be prepared for that. Also there’s some character customisation and cool and silly stuff you can add to make your character your own.

Overall My Hero One’s Justice is looking good. The graphics are good, the sounds are good, the actions is smooth, the effects are cool, the locations and environments are familiar but we hope they get creative with the battle fields. More information concerning the story would be nice but let’s stay patient. The developers ‘Byking’ did a very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker are looking forward to seeing who will be on the receiving end of the United States of smash. Now My Hero One’s Justice may be looking cool now but it’s coolness is in fact lame when compared to… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Omen of sorrow

Omen of Sorrow is another one of those games that is unique and got our attention. Omen of Sorrow is described as a classic 2D four button fighting game, developed by ‘AOne Games’. It has been stated to come out on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The date is dodgy as well probably 2018. Now this game is said to have deep combat mechanics to mix things up and create a better experience for gamers of different skill levels. Let’s take a look.

Omen of Sorrow has gotten quite a bit of attention. The reaction from gamers have been mostly positive. Literally, most of the comments have been good. There isn’t that much information on the game but we at X35 Earthwalker checked out some gameplay. So far we aren’t impressed. We actually do not see what makes the combat deep here. We can’t see any deep combat mechanics. Off course you’ll probably find out when you play it but we don’t have the game and can only go by the information given to us.

Omen of sorrow - X35 Earthwalker

In terms of the characters we know of five currently. Gabriel who looks like Van Helsings son but didn’t keep his fighting style. Dr Hyde is well… Dr Hyde. You know… the guy who is a monster version of a normal doctor with great strength. Cabal, who is basically a combination of a werewolf and an Ing from Metroid prime 2. Zafkie, who is an angel. She has angelic wings, she descended from the sky and talks about vanquishing and stopping evil before it can hurt others. Lastly Radegonda who is like a female version of the red devils from ghouls and ghosts but more grey and has butt cheeks. These five all have nothing in common except for the two humans, that’s if Gabriel is a human. The variety is looking good right now.

Omen of Sorrow is definitely a good looking game. The graphics are great. Omen of Sorrow was made with unreal engine 4 graphics. The combat is very smooth and the action just flows nicely from each attack and strike. The sounds are good as well and works well. This game was inspired by mythology and horror. 

Overall we at X35 Earthwalker think that Omen of Sorrow is just okay right now. We don’t see why this is unique from other fighting games. We don’t see what’s so special. This doesn’t mean the game isn’t good. It’s clear that a lot of hard work went into this game and the developers, ‘AOne Games’ did a great job here. We just need to know and see more before we can change our verdict. You gamers might love this so don’t let us stop you. Omen of Sorrow is worth checking out
