Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition is a turn-based strategy RPG developed by ‘Snowhound Games‘ and published by ‘1C Entertainment‘. Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition is said to be coming out the 24th of March 2020 on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC. We have never heard of this game. We hope it’s good. Let’s take a look.

Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition is set in a dystopian future. Mankind has been scattered through the galaxy. Human society is also changed. There are two classes, basically the poor and those who are well off and cozy. Well players control someone who’s poor and a stateless outcast. So you live off scraps wherever you can find it. Now rumour has it, there is an alien derelict ship rumoured to be somewhere in the deep sky sector. Why do you care? It’s what’s going to help you get citizenship and a better life on a decent planet. Yep, simple story.

Simply put, Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition is all about recruiting others to join your team. You must build them up, train, get stronger and gather items, materials, weapons and more. Scavenging is the main thing here and you must travel from room to room, which is procedural generated by the way, to find stuff and fight of attackers. You can return to home base and that’s where you can upgrade your gear.

 We aren’t going to say much about this game as it’s really clear what to expect from this. What also stands out is the art style. It’s comic book art style and it’s good to see something different from time to time. The most interesting thing for us about Deep, Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition has to be the monsters you can fight to get loot. How a game presents and design their monsters makes a big difference. Players can also explore alien ships, space stations and also planets which aren’t very safe. 

We checked out some Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition and it’s what we expected from a game like this. This definitive edition is the base game plus two downloadable content: “New Prospects” and “Station Life.” These off course add new gameplay features, enemies, character upgrades, missions other stuff. We just need to something bigger or more interesting to get us to want to play it. It has a very different style but art style isn’t enough. 

Overall, Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition does seem like a good game, not our kind of game but still good. It’s got some deep mechanics but we need more for us to get into it. The art style is done well and looks good. There are two modes, story and arena players will play it more than once because of the procedural generated rooms thing. The developers, ‘Snowhound Games’ have done a good job with this game. Now Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition may have comic style graphics but what will always look better is… the ‘Earth Walk!’

7th Sector is a new adventure game developed by “Noskov Sergey” and published by “Sometimes You“.  7th Sector is said to be coming out the 5th of February 2020 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. It already came out on PC the 5th of March 2019. 7th Sector’s style should remind you of something. Let’s take a look.

So yeah, not much information is given concerning this 7th Sector. Once again, we don’t go to the PC released from last year for information. What we do know is that players are in a world that’s described as cyberpunk. It’s also very mysterious. So don’t expect things to be normal. In this world players will need to discover the story of this place. This can be done by gathering scattered information, which means looking for them, so don’t get lazy.

This journey will be quite the unique experience. Players are basically a spark but clearly conscious and can take over mechanical beings like robots, or enter exposed wires to manipulate and control terminals etc. Like an alpha ghost in the machine or shell. There is going to be puzzles that require a bit of brain power to solve. Nothing crazy that we know of.

Now off course there is going to be some threats and dangers. There are some mechanical units that has what looks like a mounted rifle or machine gun. They will shoot you if they see you… well not at the spark but whatever body you possessed. There are other threats too in the form of the environment like large heavy machines slamming, moving, grinding, falling heavy objects etc. So you have to time when you pass through, when to do something and hide or even fight hostile machines.

We are sure that 7th Sector will remind some players of probably another game. Let’s say it together now… Inside. Yep, you have simple controls, in a mysterious world, environmental and living dangers, on a journey, lots of mystery. Now the style of the game and the mechanical world and beings does to some extent remind us of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee. These are two games that many gamers enjoyed and did things very well, from the world to the gameplay its self. 

We checked out some 7th Sector gameplay and we like what we see so far but more than how we liked Inside. There’s more going on here, actual combat, a so far col looking world. We like that there’s multiple characters to control and they have their own abilities which will help you progress through the game. 7th Sector has the feature where your actions and choices will decide what ending you get.

Overall 7th Sector looks like it’s here to bring players a new experience. We hope that the combat is in decent supply as games like this tend not to work well with lots of combat. We hope the dangers in this game actually feel like real threats. The graphics and visuals are very nice, the sounds are good too. Let’s hope the translations are good though. Now the developers “Noskov Sergey” have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what 7th Sector really brings to the consoles. Now 7th Sector may have machinery control but but that control is real weak when compared to the powerful mind of the… ‘Earth Walk!’

It Came from Space and Ate Our Brains is an arcade top down shooter game developed and published by ‘Triangle Studios‘ but also published by ‘All in! Games‘. It Came from Space and Ate Our Brains is said to be coming out the 28th of January 2020 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS4. It’s already out on PC though. Aliens wanting brains is strange. Let’s take a look.

It Came from Space and Ate Our Brains at first look will give players an exact idea of what this game has to offer. Pretty much everyone knows what arcade top down shooters are about. Run around, get items, survive while firing like crazy at the hordes of enemies that are coming after you. This is what’s going on mostly in It Came from Space and Ate Our Brains. 

Basically the story of It Came from Space and Ate Our Brains is that a dangerous alien race has shown up. They invaded earth and mercilessly feed on brains. Human brains. Players control a guy who is described as no-nonsense. This guy has two things in life: a weapon and a flashlight. For some reason the military is not doing well at all and everywhere you look, there’s chaos. You have to save the world again.

We checked out some It Came from Space and Ate Our Brains gameplay. There’s a campaign which has 6 missions, this whole game is local co-op and there’s suppose to be a whole range of weapons. There’s even special abilities too called powers. There are different modes like setting a highscore and survive for as long as possible. Just expect a whole bunch of enemies all coming for you as you make your way, so be prepared to fire… a lot.

Overall, It Came from Space and Ate Our Brains is just another arcade top down shooter game. The graphics are okay for what it is and the levels don’t seem all that interesting but there are some mechanics that does add some elements to the fights. So far there isn’t anything that makes us want to play the game or interests us. Definitely isn’t the best looking game of it’s type but it’s still a whole game that got developed through work. It’s something you must check for yourself. The developers have done an alright job with

Overpass is an off road simulation racing game developed by ‘Zordix Racing‘ and published by ‘Bigben‘. Overpass is said to be coming out in the first quarter of 2020, most likely February, on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch PlayStation 4 and PC. Overpass claims to be very different from all the other games. It’s to do with the off road stuff. Let’s take a look.

Overpass is all about the off road action. So expect nice smooth tracks. There will be none of that. All the terrain will be hazardous and dangerous. Go through the woods, across mud, up hills and not just simple hills but also steep hills with risky slopes.  Like literally this isn’t just racing. It’s more like obstacle courses with variety.

Since Overpass is about driving, let’s focus on the vehicles. We know that there are quad based vehicles and buggys. The best way to describe Overpass in terms of their vehicles is to think of the game ‘Smugglers run’. That was a real fun game. You had so many rigged and tricked out vehicles that were all made for the huge hills, rough terrain and annoying trees. They were rough vehicles, not polished or smooth looking at all. So Overpass should be like that.

The developers have made it clear that Overpass has a very detailed and realistic physics engine. This physics design is said to allow players to have “precise and meticulous control of your speed and acceleration”. This adds a skill requirement. So if players do not master this skill then their vehicle may flip over, lose grip or momentum. Brands like Suzuki, Artic Cat and Yamaha are here on the vehicles too. 

We checked out some Overpass gameplay and it’s what we expected from what we have seen. There’s some creative obstacle courses, lots of wild tracks and tests for the players to face. There’s 2 or 4 drive wheels, differential locking, transmission type: “the player has been given all the tools they need to discover the real vehicle options that will let them adapt their driving to the terrain”. We are currently liking what Overpass is doing here by going for a different racing approach. It’s more like an adventure than a race. Going across bridges, balancing and managing speed while tackling slopes, going over absurd roads and blocks etc. It’s different and really does represent some real off road driving. Hopefully there will be great variety amongst vehicles.

Overall Overpass seems like another racing game but more like a hybrid between ATV quad power racing 2 and Smugglers Run. There’s a career mode where you get to manage your vehicles and choose which is the best for each track. The graphics look very good. We d like what Overpass is ten  to do though. The developers Zordix Racing have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what Overpass will do. Now Overpass may have the vehicles for off road racing but one thing that’s perfect for all terrain is… the ‘Earth Walk!’

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!’

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!’

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!’

Infliction is a horror game developed and published by ‘Caustic Reality‘. Infliction is said to be coming out in the fourth quarter of 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS4. Infliction is already out on PC though. Now horror games like infliction tend to have similar patterns. We hope this game is different. Let’s take a look. 

In Infliction, players must explore a suburban home which once was a happy home but now is the home of tragedy, sorrow and off course horror. Obviously something bad has happened here. The player must explore the place, look around and basically discover what happened here. Not sure why we are doing that. Infliction doesn’t state if the character we control is with the police, FBI, detective, journalist, nothing. We are just here. Strange.

Now i wouldn’t be a horror game if all you did was look around. You are not alone. There’s something here in the house with you. Whatever it is it’s full of rage and definitely grief. So two things are going on here. While you are exploring, reading and finding clues as to what happened here, this being is also hunting you. If it gets the chance it will take out all its issues and anger on you. So yeah, death and all that. Beware…

Now there are some hints on the official website that gives some information concerning the whole situation. The word absolution is being used. This suggests that our character, whoever they are is somehow involved and needs to earn forgiveness but the looks of it. Also the whole Infliction experience is said to be unpredictable which is a good thing. Players need to be kept guessing, especially in horror aspects like this. 

Since the house was were a happy family was living then expect Infliction to being dealing with matter relating to everyday life and mature topics. These stuff are being fused with the supernatural. Infliction is about making the player very uncomfortable by letting them relate to what’s going on here.

We checked out some Infliction gameplay and there isn’t much to say. Games like infliction have been done before and you basically know what to expect. Infliction even reminds us of Visage. You’re in a house, exploring and evil is there basically so keep away. Many gamers and YouTubers off course enjoy this stuff like how CoryxKenshin did. The main difference with Infliction though is that not only can you hide from the danger by hiding under the tables and beds but you can get or use light sources to stun the spirit to give you some time to escape. A camera is an example of such a light source.

Overall, Infliction seems like another indoor house exploring horror game where it’s all about the atmosphere, tension and making players afraid to enter. Song of Horror, Visage, Silver Chains are all examples of this. So players should understand what kind of experience they will be getting. The developers ‘Caustic Reality’ has done a good job with this game. they do need to make it stand out more from the other similar games though. We at X35 Earthwalker will just have to see what becomes of Infliction. Now Infliction may have an angry sprit but even that spirit has to stay calm when it comes too… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Weakless is a new adventure puzzle game developed by ‘Punk Nation‘ and ‘Cubeish Games‘ but published by ‘Punk Nation’ only. Weakless is said to be coming out the 29th of November 2019 on the Xbox One and PC. It hasn’t been announced if Weakless is going to be on the Nintendo Switch and PS4 yet. Let’s take a look. 

Basically in Weakless players control two characters. Their kind is called weavelings. Their names seem to be ‘Deaf’ and ‘Blind’. What charming names right? Why are they called that? This is because Deaf is literally deaf and Blind is literally blind. This is also the whole point of the game. Players must have these characters work together to progress through this world. This world has what’s being described as challenging puzzles. Both characters are needed for success. 

Now in Weakless you might be wondering why not just have the one who can see lead the other one around as seeing is better than hearing. Well both of Deaf and Blind have more than learnt how to deal with their disabilities. They have developed some extraordinary abilities.  Blind is the older and way more calm of the two and is the one to look after Deaf. You can only control one character at a time which also means you can use their senses one at a time. So knowing when to use who and what they can do is key for Weakless.

So what’s going on in Weakless? What’s Deaf and Blind out here doing? Basically they want to protect their village and off course the weaveling people. This can be done by bringing back the flow of Resin, which is life energy for all living creatures in the Weakless world. Without the flow of Resin the world is in danger from the advancing rot. 

Now Weakless takes place in a very different world indeed. This world is full of different locations and areas. So make sure to take a moment to observe the surroundings. Players can expect natural basins, caves, ruins and more. A variety of locations is pretty much always a win in video games. 

We checked out some Weakless gameplay and it’s quite interesting, especially with the puzzles. Blind has exceptional hearing while Deaf can bring light wherever he goes. They truly have to work together. The puzzles and the environment in multiple ways do remind us of Pikmin. There’s a number of secrets in the world of Weakless. Deaf even has a sketch book where players can check out and see what Deaf thinks about the whole situation. 

Overall Weakless seems like another adventure with some puzzle elements. Sort of like Abe and Munch from Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee where you must control both characters, think things through and use their skills. Just seems like a good game but we definitely like how different Weakless is. The developers ‘Punk Notion’ and ‘Cubeish Games’ have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what Weakless accomplishes. Now Weakless may be about teamwork but even working together won’t help you beat… 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!’
