Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is a new card strategy game developed by ‘Fantasy Flight Interactive‘ and published by ‘Asmodee Digital‘. It is said that Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is coming out the 8th of August 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. There was already an PC early access but we don’t care. Let’s take a look.

Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is set off course in the world of Lord of the Rings. This game is straight forward and not much to explain except the details. It’s a hard strategy game so gamers should know what to expect. Collect cards, hopefully some powerful ones and build a deck. Use that deck to battle destroy your enemies and progress through the world. 

So basically the dark forces of Sauron are here and causing all kinds of trouble. Darkness and their evil is spreading. Off course heroes are needed. Players will also control and lead three heroes who are off course who are famous and the Lord of the Ring fans should know. Make your way through the campaigns but that won’t be easy. Expect Spiders, Orcs, Battle Uruks and much more. If you know the Lord of Rings universe then you should know what enemies and monsters to expect.  

Now from what we know, there’s quite a lot of strategy to this game. There’s off course lots of abilities and hero powers but there’s also your heroes will power, a fate pool, sphere of influence and more. All these must be taken into account when developing strategies and coming up with different ways to take down your enemies. So this isn’t straight forward simple steam roll gameplay. The situation and enemies must be taken into account, including the circumstances. 

We checked out some gameplay and it’s mainly what we though it would be. We like that features of the game and how the cards work is explained well. The arrows could have been better at pointing to things though. Remember that each hero has one o four spheres of influence: spirit, tactics, leadership and lore. They allow specific reinforcement cards in-game. Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is constantly being compared to Hearthstone with similar style in design and combat but that isn’t an issue for us here and as many games have similar styles but off course different games. Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is looking like a real story so far.

Overall, Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is looking good so far. The graphics are good for what it’s about. The sounds and voices are very good. Again, instructions are gone well and this game does become straight forward to play. Heroes and units can be equipped and strengthened. The variety of enemies is big enough from what we can see. We just hope they get more creative and add more. The story gives the impression that you’re on a real adventure. The developers ‘Fantasy Flight Interactive’ have done a very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an ear open for Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game and see what it’s got. Now Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game may have a big adventure but nothings bigger than the ‘Earth Walk!’

Aritana and the Twin Masks is a new action adventure game developed by ‘Duaik‘. Aritana and the Twin Masks is said to be coming out the 16th of August 2019 on the Xbox One. We heard it also plans to be on PS4 but no clear date has been given yet. Now this game does look interesting and as room for creativity and things to make it awesome. Let’s take a look. 

Not much information given concerning this game but this isn’t the first time Aritana has been mentioned. Aritana and the Twin Masks has been called the second adventure. We certainly haven’t heard of the first. This means that fans would know about this games world and the history of the characters. Probably. What we  do know is that Aritana and the Twin Masks is suppose to be a big adventure and the story is all based on Brazilian mythology. This means players can expect unnatural events, creatures and laws. This also means this game has good opportunity to make it as imaginative and fantasy based as possible. 

You off course play Aritana and follow him on his adventure to save the tree of life. Tree of life? Many things get their inspirations and ideas from the Bible. The tree of life was in the garden of Eden. Read Genesis 3:22, just saying. So this tree in Aritana and the Twin Masks is in danger. Now it wouldn’t be a game if you just walked up to the tree did a chant and then all was well. It’s a whole adventure with a massive forest, tropical fruits that magical powers derive from and the gods. You are armed with a bow that’s powered by a god. Sounds powerful. So is it infinite arrows or explosive or can it hit things that aren’t visible or really there? Questions. 

Aritana and the Twin Masks is certainly big one environments and explorable areas. It’s not just a forest players will explore but there’s even a temple. A lost temple. How do you lose a temple anyway? That temple will contain artifacts that you can mix in different special potions to create all kinds of effects and useful variables in your adventure. There are many powers in this world and some of them are needed. For example some will allow you to be able to solve certain puzzles. Yes, puzzles.

We checked out some Aritana and the Twin Masks gameplay and well it does look cool but not exciting. Aritana and the Twin Masks does remind us of an old game on the PlayStation 2 called Brave. Both based on mythology, both action adventure with puzzles. Like Brave it’s cool but not exciting our awesome. It’s graphics isn’t the best but good enough.  We are liking the amount of mystical things that happens in this world. We are liking the abilities and find it funny how totems are basically enemies. 

Overall Aritana and the Twin Masks does seem like an alright game. The music is very good and the sounds are good too. It’s just the graphics that don’t stand up to the standards in 2019. We like the creativity and hope for a more interesting variety of enemies. The developers ‘Duaik’ have done an alright job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see more of this game as time passes. Now Aritana and the Twin Masks may have a mystical world but even that world is simple when compared to.. the ‘Earth Walk!’

Metal Wolf Chaos is a new action mech shooter developed by ‘General Arcade‘ and ‘FromSoftware‘ and published by ‘Devolver Digital Games‘. Metal Wolf Chaos is said to be coming out the 6th of August on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Is America ready for this one? Guess we’ll have to find out. Let’s take a look.

The world of Metal Wolf Chaos is set in America. Basically what’s going on is that the vice-president Richard Hawk has started and lead a full scale rebellion in an attempt to take over America and guess be in charge. The current president Donald- we mean Michael Wilson must defend America. Since he is president, it’s his job to take America back and he’s doing it by any means necessary. Now this would be so easy and just have to call the police if it weren’t for Richard Hawk having a mechanised army. He commands legions of them. President Michael Wilson will use his own advanced powerful mech, which has loads of firepower and weapons, to battle all across America and save the nation. Simple story and it makes sense. 

So basically a remake and we know the deal with remakes. There isn’t that much to say about them. What we do know and hope is that they get all the required elements of a remake or modernising game. The first things many gamers look for and expect of a game like this is the graphics and visuals. Metal Wolf Chaos has received a visual upgrade but still doesn’t look as great as your average  2019 game. Reminds us more of Duke Nukem 3D in a way but obviously better visuals though. The developers need to step up on graphics. The controls have been improved and that should be instantly noticeable. Also expected will be 4K as that’s what many seem to care about now. 16:9 viewing is supported for modern screens.

We checked out some Metal Wolf Chaos gameplay. If you know the original game then you know what to expect. It’s sort of what we expected though. You literally run around blasting everything. Using powerful weapons, strafing, locking on, dodging and even getting physical with your enemies. Lots of action. The game certainly delivers on the action. Classic players would like the style to because of how it controls and what you are capable of doing. Expect tanks to come after you, aircrafts, missiles, bullets and much more all here to take you down. After all you ain’t getting your country back that early.

Overall, Metal Wolf Chaos seems like a alright game. Honestly hope the graphics improve way more. The action is solid from what we can see so far. Many gamers would jump in just to zoom around and blow stuff up in many different ways with different weapons. The developers ‘General Arcade’ and ‘FromSoftware’ have done an alright job with this game so far but more is needed. We at X35 Earthwalker will just have to wait and see what becomes of this game. Now Metal Wolf Chaos may have action and explosions but nothing more explosive than… the ‘Earth Walk!’

River City Girls is a new actin brawler game developed by ‘WayForward‘ and ‘Arc System Works‘. River City Girls is said to be coming out the 5th of September 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. This game is suppose to be a whole lot of butt kicking. Let’s take a look. 

In the world River City Girls, two young ladies called ‘Kyoko and Misako’ where just going about their day when they learnt that their boyfriends got kidnapped. How they got kidnapped was serious business but typical. Basically the both of them were just strolling down the street when a van pulled up next to them and dudes jump put with bats, snatch up the two boyfriends and gave them a real beating. Bruises and all. Honestly they could have prevented that but seemed to caught off guard and slow to react. Also the guys who jumped them looked like police or security. Since they didn’t have a police van it’s safe to say it’s a group that dress up like officials or something like that. 

So what do young ladies like Kyoko and Misako do in City River Girls? They called the police and left it to the law… Just joking, they grab a bat, put on a knuckle duster and head out through the 6 regions of River City kicking all kinds of buttery themselves. Punches, kicks, throws, hurling objects and more. Now when you see the graphics style of the game and the gameplay, some gamers will be reminded of Scott Pilgrim vs the world: The game. They are both arcade style, olden time beat em up games. Very 16-bit looking with the health bar, money and score. This type of style can work very well. Scott pilgrim vs the world: the game certainly pulled it off, so River City Girls can too.

So yes, players must fight there way through. Enemies will show up and try to take you out. Just beat them up and keep it up. Games like this are straight forward and easy to understand and get on with. We are glad to hear that there is strategy to this game in terms of the combat. You can counter attacks which off course means timing is required to pull it off. There are different combos for players to use and master so variety seems to be present here. Off course there are special attacks and we hope they come in good variety too. What is different from Scott Pilgrim vs the world: The game is that there are side quests and the ability to recruit fallen enemies as allies in combat which is definitely awesome but how did the girls do that. Did the fallen foes respect how they got beat up and decided to join? 

Now in terms of music we know that River City Girls have synth-pop soundtracks which happens to feature Chipzel, Megan McDuffee, NateWantsToBattle and Christina Vee. Don’t know any of them. The game also is going for that fun comical kind of style too as there are anime like cutscenes and the intermissions have a manga style to it. From our experience we can tell that the boyfriends will be playable characters which will be an awesome move. Also you can buy items, gear and more in order to boost your characters stats. The first time we played Scott Pilgrim we didn’t know how to boost our stats. It was by accident so we are glad that River City Girls makes that more clear. 

We checked out some River City Girls gameplay and we saw quite a bit. The trailer does a good job. Cheerleaders are enemies, dudes who have Elvis hair, regular dudes in school uniform and the guys who have the same uniform as the guys who kidnapped the boyfriend. Fight in the streets, the arcade, school areas like the sports hall and more. One thing we noticed is that the game does look too easy right now. Scott Pilgrim vs the world: the game eventually got too easy and gamers ruined it by continuously spamming the special move with Scott making even the final boss a joke. So River City Girls needs to make sure the game is a challenge. 

Overall, River City Girls seem like. good game for now but it hasn’t made us want to play it yet. It’s currently interesting, looks fun and seems we do want to know more about this game. We know there are gamers who will find this real cool and that’s good. The developers ‘WayForward’ and ‘Arc System Works’ have done a good job with this game. Now River City Girls may have butt kicking girls but nothing kicks butt more than… the ‘Earth Walk!’

The Blackout Club is a new first person co-op horror game developed by ‘Question‘. The BlackOut Club is said to be coming out the 30th of July 2019 on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. From what we know it’s a co-op horror game and those are the hardest horror games to successfully make. Let’s take a look.

In the world of The Blackout Club. There’s a small modern town where a group of teenagers live. You, the players, are also a teenager. For some reason, every morning you wake up to find yourself covered in scratches or mud. You also have no memory of the night before. No, the isn’t because of alcohol. It gets worse, sometimes you can have no memory or recollection of whole days. They come to the conclusion that this isn’t sleep walking either. There are other teenagers just like you who are experiencing the same things. They group together becoming friends and forming a team or should we say club to figure out and look into what’s going on around here. 

The Blackout Club gets stranger as it doesn’t take long to figure out that right beneath your feet is a whole network of underground tunnels. It gets creepier though. You can at times here music from below. Is is beckoning the youngsters or is someone just having a rave down there. Turn up! We mean let’s be careful. After all when is the last time you lived somewhere that had underground tunnels and music being played? So the youngsters get second thoughts about investigating but last night, your best friend vanished. Also a group of adults wants to get rid of you all. You have to fight back now. If you want to expose them, then you’ll need evidence. So turn your cameras on and start recording. 

So yes, the idea of the game is simple. Work together with friends and others to investigate the tunnels, watch each others backs and gather evidence that proves what’s happening here to the whole world. The best way to do that is to use your cameras and phones to record what you find and any encounters. Do all this while avoiding getting captured and maybe even killed. So it’s all about teamwork here. 

There’s more than just the streets and the tunnels. There’s even the woods nearby, which can work for you or against you. It’s been made clear that the game is multiplayer so 1-4 players co-op is here. It’s also drop in and out style so you can just get reinforcements in easily and leave when you have to. The developers claim The Blackout Club has high replayability. That each mission is procedurally generated. So players can expect different experiences from other players each time. How the levels are generated are affected by your progression and character level. Other factors that are different will be environmental obstacles, enemy patrols and off course loot locations.

Now let’s talk about the enemies. They are a strange lot. We know they are adults. We know they are called The Shape. We know that if you draw too much attention to yourself, they will come after you. Worst of all is that The Shape can only be seen when you close your eyes. Wait what? What kind of adults are these. This is a problem. Players will need to watch out for each other even more. 

We checked out some gameplay and it’s sort of what we thought it would be like. It is quite a detailed world with areas to explore. The graphics could have been better, the sounds are good though. Not sure exactly how the close your eyes mechanic works but we will learn more in the future. You can use weapons like a teaser to get adults of you and even use a crossbow to fire tranquilliser darts too. There’s some levels of strategy to The Blackout Club. Multiple ways to handle different situations. You can also customise your character. Hair styles, new clothing, gestures. Levelling up will also grant access to ability upgrades and new expansion slots. We just have to make this clear. It’s a fact that horror games with multiple players aren’t scary. You have help and company gives confidence. What the Blackout Club is trying to do is a very hard thing. Diamondz L45 didn’t complete Dead Space because she found it scary but when X35 was present and giving advice she made it through levels. She would have zero fear if X35 was playing as well. We literally haven’t seen a co-op horror game that is actually scary at all. 

Overall The Blackout Club just seems like an alright game. Nothing makes us just want to play it and we have seen co-op meant to be scary games before and they never really work out that well at all. We hope to see more information concerning the Blackout Club to hopefully see more good stuff. The developers ‘Question’ have put quite a lot of thought into this game and it does show. Now The Blackout Club may have dangerous adults but those adults are a joke when compared to… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Aggelos is a 16-bit style adventure RPG game developed by ‘Storybird Games‘ and published by ‘PQube Limited‘ and ‘Look At My Games‘. Aggelos is said to be coming out the 12th of June on Xbox One and PS4 but already out on Nintendo Switch and PC. This game clearly has a particular target audience in mind. Let’s take a look.

In the world of Aggelos there’s a huge battle going on. Basically the battle takes place in a peaceful kingdom called Lumen. Beings from another dimension has shown up and are invading Lumen. So off course the hero must set out and defeat this evil threat. As you can see, the story is simple and traditional. Everything about this game is suppose to be about the old gaming days. From one look you could tell this was 16-bit styled. That’s what Aggelos is all about.

In Aggelos, players must find magical elements in order to save the world from total destruction. This won’t be easy as the levels and how the game plays should remind some players of Metroid and even Castlevania. You will go past multipolemplaces that you can’t initially explore due to a lack of certain abilities and upgrades. Players will to take note of certain places and what’s required before revisiting. 

Now Lumen isn’t some simple plain place. Players will end up traversing and exploring seas, caves, forests and even temples… ancient temples. We do hope that these different locations show clear diversities amongst them. From the types of enemies, to the types of secrets to the types of hazards. It may be a 16-bit styled game but it’s the year 2019 so we expect up to date type stuff implemented into this game. No excuses. 

Now there’s the main quests that you follow concerning the Aggelos story but there’s also basically side quests which come in the form of tasks and job offered to you by the citizens of Lumen. So it’s sort of safe to say that there’s almost always something to do. We just hope that the rewards are actually worth it. 

Now concerning the enemies there is certainly a variety. Expect fishes, turtle like things, scorpions, little dragons, flying creatures, and much more. There are also large bosses in Aggelos. We have seen a large squid creature, humanoid flying bird, a armoured armadillo thing, large dragon and more. It definitely has old gaming style written all over it. This will off course instantly appeal to some gamers straight away.   

We checked out some gameplay and it does look like an old 16-bit old game but not exactly giving of the same feeling though. You can obtain magical abilities and some powerful high-level attacks. There’s also a chaining system where chaining these abilities you can destroy entire screens worth of enemies in seconds. There’s quite a bit to this game. Sort of deep.

Overall Aggelos looks like a fun game. I’s simple but sort of deep and pretty much accomplishes what it sets out to do. The graphics are good for it’s style and the sounds like an old game for sure. The developers ‘Storybird Games’ did a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what becomes of Aggelos. Now Aggelos may have 16-bit style but it looks lame when compared to the style of… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Sea of Solitude is a new adventure game developed by ‘jo-mei games‘ and published by ‘Electronic Arts‘. Sea of Solitude is coming out the 5th of July 2019 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. This gamer is said to have a strange world with strange rules. Trust us. Let’s take a look.

The story in Sea of Solitude is not so simple. Players following around a girl called Kay. She is struggling with loneliness. That can sound very normal but in the world of Sea of Solitude loneliness can turn people into monsters. That’s right. So that explains why she looks like a monster right now. Is this all symbolic? Is this not really happening? It’s a whole big world to explore. 

You will explore a flooded city in multiple ways. Sea of Solitude gives options. There’s a boat, more like a speed boat which is perfect for going across the waters fast and easy. You will have to get out on foot, run, climb and traverse the area. Lastly you can swim in the water yourself and dive under to explore the rest of the flooded city. There can be something under there… and there is. 

Clearly, you aren’t alone in the sea of solitude. There are other monsters and we mean real monsters. There’s one that is swimming around in the sea, a large eel shaped creature that is fast and big mouthed. This monster makes you not want to go into the water. Seriously you won’t stand a chance against that thing in the water. There’s another big monster that’s basically a giant raven that also doesn’t look that friendly but as mean looking as the sea creature. There’s another that reminds us of the Shadow of Vincent  from Catherine. A giant woman who looks like she was submerged in water. Creepy. There’s more too.

Literally this suppose to be some sort of emotional journey or something. The city we believe is suppose to represent her mind or something. We don’t believe she actually is turning into a monster. The water levels and flooded city changes as you progress. This will effect the level itself and new places should come accessible. The fact that the city is flooded is a bit symbolic too. Her mind is troubled and the struggle with loneliness is effecting everything else in her life like how the flood effects everything else of the city. Connected? We think so. So expect to get some feels over Sea of Solitude. You could say that the Sea of Solitude is quite ‘deep’. See what we did there? 

We checked out some Sea of Solitude gameplay. It’s sort of what we thought it would be but creepier. A lot of exploration, a big threat looming in the distance and hanging around, keeping players worried and wondering when the encounter with that danger will happen. You can’t be too afraid of monsters as players will need to face them. Not only to progress but also learn more about Kay and what’s going on. There’s a number of creepy/scary stuff so prepare yourself for all of that. There’s the hands reaching up from the waters giving off a river styx, the hands of the damned type feel. The shadow people watching you as you walk through an area. Lots going on and we like that players will have to get a bit brave to search underwater and certain places where you see or remember danger. 

Overall Sea of Solitude does seem like another mystery, emotional exploration game but not as explorational like Shape of the World, Beyond Blue and Abzu. There is some horror aspects here for some players too. We like what we see so far. We definitely like creative stuff and does make us wonder about some stuff. The graphics are looking good too. The developers ‘jo-mei games’ have done a very good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker want to see some good stuff concerning this game. Now Sea of Solitude might be deep but what’s way deeper is… the ‘Earth Walk!’

War Tech Fighters is a new space action game developed by ‘Drakkar Dev‘ and published by ‘Green Man Gaming Publishing‘. It is coming out the 27th of June on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS4 but also the 25th of July for PC (steam). So big robots, lasers, explosions, sort of like an anime. Let’s take a look.

In the world of War tech Fighters, there’s a big battle going on between two armies. Let us explain. The rebel colonies: Hebos and Ares have decide to join forces and work together to fight against the empire… the zatros empire. They certainly don’t have the numbers or machine advantage but they do have what’s considered “the deadliest weapons ever built”… War Techs. Think of them sort of like transformers but not alive and has more fire power. These War Techs will make all the difference and give the rebels a chance.

Since War Tech Fighters this is a space action game, everything will take place in space (no you don’t say). This means space crafts, giant space carriers, small fighter ships, high speed strikers, lasers, explosions and great risk. Think of War tech Fighters like one of those robot anime with people controlling them and they face other machines just like them but off course different strengths, skills, weapons and stats. That’s probably the best way to imagine it.

There isn’t that much to say about War Tech Fighters. It’s a giant robots, space battle action game. Off course these War Techs are made for combat. They have blasters, missiles, lasers, long range weaponry and when things get a bit too close, use those melee weapons like shields and swords. So there is no safe zone for the player. You can always get attacked so keep your mobility high and your damage output.

What we did find interesting is that players can either fight in first or third person view. It’s always great to provide the options. Now a game like War Tech Fighters off course need some level of customisation and it does. A lot! It’s been said that there are thousands of possible combinations thanks to the range of colours, different mechanical parts and off course the weapons themselves.

There is also another game mode called ‘survival mode’ where you literally just survive for a s long as possible with numerous and dangerous enemies all aiming to take you down. This isn’t just for passing time though and players can earn rewards in the process. So there’s a reason to play it.

Your War Tech is some static simple machine. Your War Tech can level up. You gain experience through combat and through exploration. While exploring you can find hidden project parts which grant you access to new swords, research projects, shields and war tech sets. So rewarding players for exploration is a good move. Off course a game, that has space as your playground, needs big exploration. 

Now for smaller details in War Tech Fighters. Over 180 upgradable robot parts, repayable missions, 33 campaign missions and even perks that come with your shields and swords.

We checked out some War Tech Fighters gameplay and things look real good. It’s what we expected. A lot of side strafing, homing blasts, lasers, multiple enemies and a whole lot of space (see what we did there). There are enemies that are huge carrier ships, some look like stations, there are smaller fighters that move at fast speeds and worse off all there are other War Techs too and they also have a range of equipment and weapons so don’t take them lightly.  

Overall War Tech Fighters does seem to do it’s job. Getting launched into space at high speeds, zooming around dodging attacks and projectiles while destroying enemies with big explosions and a range of weapons. The graphics look very good and the details on the War Techs is very good too. It’s literally a space action game. The developers ‘Drakkar Dev’ have done a very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what will happen with War Tech Fighters. Now War Tech Fighters may have space battles but the only thing truly out of this world is… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Riverbond is a new hack and slash dungeon crawler game developed and published by ‘Cococucumber’. Riverbond is said to be coming out in the third quarter of 2019 on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. A game like this looks very welcoming but we all know it can’t be that innocent and safe. Let’s take a look.

The story in Riverbond is quite interesting. Players head out on a journey, which takes place down a river. Get it? This isn’t an ordinary trip. It’s an enchanted river and the lands are continually shifting and moving. The world is collapsing and so there isn’t much time. Player must also rebuild the passage that goes to the great beyond. Whatever that is. So players have to save the world by the looks of it by figuring out what’s happening and the solution has to do with the great beyond. Interesting but still simple.

Now Riverbond takes place in a voxel world. What’s a voxel world?… well… A voxel represents a value on a a grid. It’s all 3D though. Think of it as cubes placed together. So if Riverbond has a voxel world, basically the style of the game is all cubes. The lands are made from cubes, the characters, and the water is designed in a cube style. It’s easier to understand when you see the game yourself. When you do however; the first things or should we say game that comes to mind is… Minecraft. The world world and characters and stuff is basically cubes. Blocky. 

This style obviously gets attention and when done right and with the right colours, can look really good. Even better is the fact that the voxel world in Riverbond is destructible. So be careful of what you destroy. There is real time physics s don’t think for one moment that the block will just stay in the air. Gravity is at work. There are 8 worlds and each off course is different and have their own threats and obstacles. Speaking of threats, since it’s a hack and slash, expect lots of combat, many enemies and lots to slow you down. There are even bosses as well. The developers have described them as deadly but cute. 

There is said to her over 50 different weapons and guns. Good to see that there is some variety to the combat. Long ranged combat and off course close range slashing. Best of all though is that Riverbond is multiplayer. That’s right, 1-4 local. So not only can you invite friends and family over to play, you don’t have to save the game and go to the menu to bring them in. It’s drop in, drop out style meaning they just have to hit start and they jump in where you are. That’s an excellent option. Great job developers. That’s what we like to see. Riverbond about to get some action from gamers.

We checked out some Riverbond gameplay and it’s what we expected based on the games description. You run around as a small character wielding large weapons and fighting through the many enemies. There are different skins for players to unlock like the shovel knight skin. Big enemies that have dangerous attacks, you can destroy structures and pillars, knock down bridges, smash through trees and much more. The co-op multiplayer looks fun as you can all team up against enemies and turn the tables thanks to the extra back up. We hope Riverbond has a means to make the game difficult even when there’s four players attacking enemies. We wonder if the game is difficult at all.

Overall Riverbond does so far look like another little fun game. Nothing huge and complicated at all. It seems like another game that we can get friends to quickly play and have a laugh and fight together. The graphics are very good for it’s style. The level design is good too and shows good creativity. We like the variety of enemies from pigs and crocodiles to golems (we think it’s golems). We like what we see. The developers ‘Cococucumber’ have done a very good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker look forward to seeing what Riverbond has to offer gamers. Now Riverbond may have a collapsing world but even that isn’t as serious as… the ‘Earth Walk!’

We. The revolution is a new historical strategy game developed by ‘Polyslash‘ and published by ‘Klabater‘. It is said to be coming out the 25th of June 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS4 but already out on the PC. This game looks like it’s going for the serious atmosphere. Let’s take a look.

In We. The Revolution players are dropped in France. Not the France we all know but France, in Paris during the French revolution. It’s the year 1794 (according to their website). Players control a judge. Well not exactly the honest type as he’s described as a gambler and alcoholic. As a judge, you will be overseeing, listening to and passing judgement concerning the cases brought to you. You will be dealing with regular people, revolutionaries, criminals and even your enemies. Decide their punishment or decide to let them go.

Sounds easy and fun doesn’t it? WRONG! The whole of Paris is watching your and your decisions in We. The Revolution. There are factions in France who are seeing whose side you are taking. They also want you on their side. Will you favour one faction over another? There are off course consequences for these decisions. Will you stay neutral and be a honest judge? Liar. Look at you trying to sound noble. Let’s if you stay honest when it’s your family on the line. That’s right. Your characters family is involved. What if your loved ones commit a crime, will you have them executed too? 

So yes there will be some serious decision making, but you will be fighting for the life of your family and your own life too. We. The Revolution in a way reminds us of ‘Papers please‘. Where you have a serious job, your life is on the line, must manage job and family at the same time and there can and will be serious consequences depending on what you do. You could get executed as an enemy of the revolution. The guillotine will be seeing a lot of action in this game. 

There will be multiple scenarios in We. The Revolution, many names and different characters in this game and they will hold certain positions, want certain things and have certain influence and impacts in the game, so players need to take all this into account. You could end up having certain people replaced in terms of position and job. You might end up removing someone from power who is actually loyal to you with someone who will try to ruin you, or better get you killed.

We checked out some We. The Revolution gameplay and it is deeper than we thought. In order to ask questions, you must unlock them which will require linking and some thinking from the players. You will have lots of information presented to you, from gossip, the expected results of different people and factions and more. You can even see the political hierarchy and where you rank in all of France. Your aim is to also take over France if you choose and increase you reputation. There’s a lot going on here.   

Overall We. The Revolution seems like a good game. Lots of cutscenes and quite the story to tell. Many decisions, many actions and thanks to a randomisation of events that take place in the game, players will not experience the same play through of We. The revolution. Graphics is the polygon style and it works quite well here. This game definitely seems well thought out. The developers ‘Polyslash’ have done a very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will expect to see more of We. The Revolution. Now We. The Revolution may have an oppressive atmosphere but you get the best atmosphere when you do… the ‘Earth Walk!’
