Shuyan Saga is a action adventure game developed by ‘Lofty Sky Entertainment’ and published by ‘ESDigital Games‘. Shuyan Saga is said to be coming out on the 22nd of September 2023 on Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, PS5 and PS4. Shuyan Saga was already out on iOS, Android and pc back in like 2017 or something. X35 Earthwalker like to see what games got and give them a chance. Shuyan Saga trying to wow with the graphics. Let’s take a look.
Shuyan Saga is set in the world of ancient Chinese culture. Shuyan is a princess, of the Chinese imperial family, who wants to be a true kung fu warrior and stop the Guer horde. The Guer horde have made it their goal to destroy the five kingdoms. This is also a personal matter as Shuyan lost everything to the goer invasion. She got to get good and get good real quick. The invasion is only beginning.
We got one question for the wise reader of this G Blog. Who is the real enemy? Hmmmmmm. “Success is not what Shuyan perceived it to be.” This alone should get players thinking concerning the story and the world of Shuyan Saga. The story and adventure revolves around the five kingdoms. Each kingdom was built on the foundations of kung fu. so pay attention to each one’s culture and values. Also take note that the player can make some choices in Shuyan Saga. Your choices just might matter.
The main factor on the table with Shuyan Saga is the martial arts itself. How good is the fighting? The battles have been described as “skill-based”. There’s different fighting styles and each one has their own moves and functions. There are light and heavy attacks, combos of course and special abilities which are said to be powerful. There’s over 300 combat animations and motion capture is involved. X35 Earthwalker is the best at motion capture. Expect unique fights.
We checked out some Shuyan Saga gameplay and it’s not exactly what we expected. It seems like more story book and less gameplay. Yes we are aware it’s a graphical novel but a game must have a good amount of gameplay with more fullness to it and more mobility especially for chinese martial arts.. So that’s the main negative we can see with Shuyan Saga right now. Regardless it’s still an experience. The animations of the combat could look better but there’s clear-ish distinction between the moves. After all X35 Earthwalker himself is a martial artist.
Overall Shuyan Saga looks like a very good game. Lots of work went into this game clearly. From the graphic style and details to the animations and cinematic. This is quite the adventure and the princess, Shuyan herself, has an excellent design. She look good. The story in the chapters and the book style is different fun. Colourful and detailed. The developers ‘Lofty Sky Entertainment’ have done a very good job. Tings should be better since Shuyan Saga is coming to consoles. X35 Earthwalker will keep an ear open for this game when it comes to console. Shuyan Saga may have loads of kung fu but their king fu is too weak for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
AK-xolotl is a top down rougelite shooter developed by ‘2Awesome studio‘ and published by ‘Playstack‘. AK-xolotl is said to be coming out the 14th of September 2023 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and pc. X35 Earthwalker does like Xolotls. AK-xolotl is out here not joking around, except they are joking around. Grab your AK-47. Let’s take a look.
AK-xolotl is a funny game. Literally. AK-xolotl has players control a Xolotl who is cute but turns out is very dangerous. This Xolotl is armed with weapons. Its main is the AK-47. That why we mentioned it earlier. Now the story… well it’s more like you just go on a rampage through the different biomes facing all kinds of foes and dangerous beings. It’s an adventure for sure.
This game is actually funny. AK-xolotl is all about that action. The bosses are crazy. There’s even a hello kitty… oh sorry, we meant hell’o kitty. We are sure you see the reference here. Giant knife wielding Enemy Crabs and even sock snakes There’s many enemies who are natural predators and if you give them the chance, they will destroy you… unless… you destroy them first. You can even go full akuma from street fighter on these foes with the raging demon.
Now during your adventure in AK-xolotl you will come across different baby Xolotls. Find them and help them. Bring them back home with you and nurture and raise them. When they grow up, they become Xolotl characters for you to control and play. Treat it like the binding of Isaac. Different characters, different effects, maybe some abilities. So yeah there’s some variety for sure.
Now of course, AK-xolotl as a rougelite crazy shooter, there’s random generated rooms, random layouts and getting jumped by foes. So make sure to grab the food you find. Feed your xolotl children and hopefully get a bite for yourself. Besides that you are going to need some help. That’s why you can purchase things like at ‘Small Paws Dealer’. There are other friendly beings out there who are willing to help… for a price etc.
So yeah, you should know what to expect by now with AK-xolotl. You can either choose to play with a melee style or ranged shooter. There’s many enemies, many weapons, upgrades are off course available. Don’t forget to cook ‘permanent, stat-improving recipes” for the xolotls. Eat everything you can find. We hear even mjolnir is in the game.
We checked out some Ak-Xolotl gameplay and it’s what we expected. Run, around, keep moving and fight your way through it all. It’s a rougelite for sure. Just straight up fun but additional elements like the whole rescuing and raising babies thing to become fighters. Ak-Xolotl is not playing around.
Overall Ak-Xolotl looks like an excellent game. There’s lots to like here. It’s silly, fun, straight action, references, lots to do and multiple mechanics going on. More things need to be examined. Cute shooter. Sigh. The developers ‘2Awesome studios’ have done an excellent job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an eye open for this game. Ak-Xolotl may have cute dangerous creatures but they aren’t on the level high enough for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Super Bomberman R 2 is an action adventure game developed and published by ‘Konami’. Super Bomberman R 2 is said to be coming out the 13th of September 2023 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and pc. X35 Earthwalker‘s crew truly enjoyed the first game. Super Bomberman R 2 is clearly trying to make a blast… make a boom… explode on to the scene… we have more of these and can go on. Let’s take a look.
Super Bomberman R 2 is bringing back what we know. The Bomberman family is back. They are still silly, dysfunctional, funny and getting the job done. There’s another threat in the universe. The Bomberman brothers and their new friends, the ellons, have to save the universe… again. So that’s the story basically. It’s a Bomberman game after all.
Super Bomberman R 2 is something that’s on our screens for sure. There’s lots to do in the previous game and now there’s even more. There’s even a whole new game mode too, that’s going to make players get tactical and think more. The story unlocks as you explore the planets which is a cool change. Makes exploration impactful and necessary. You go to do it. Use your bombs to blow things up, progress and defeat your foes. We hear there’s even a secret puzzle. Players may need to find hints for it.
Multiplayer in Super Bomberman R 2 is pretty much how we remember it. Use your bombs to blow up your enemies, outplay, outwit, or trap them. Whatever. It’s freaking Bomberman. You should know what to do. This also includes the 64 player mode. So yeah… the more the merrier… maybe. X35 Earthwalker won his very first 64 player battle Royale match… in his first match. That’s how good he is. Maybe he will do it again.
Now concerning the new mode, it’s called ‘Castle’. Here’s how it works. It’s a battle mode with a maximum of 16 players. Two teams. There’s an attack side and the castle side. Castle side is the defence side. It’s a battle over treasure chests and their keys off course. The castle side must defend the treasure chests and keys. There’s gimmicks available and even the Ellons. Use them well. Even better are these weapons the castle players can use. There’s three weapon types to take into battle but you must pick one. Each have conditions for players to meet, to charge the weapon. Use weapon when fully charged. Super Bomberman R 2 keeping it simple.
On top of this there’s an editor so you can custom build your own stages. Put in your gimmicks, set in some walls and finally test your stage yourself. Once it’s complete and works, then you can upload it. Add tags to it so it’s easier to find. You can easily find other players designed stages too and give them a run through.
We checked out some Super Bomberman R 2 gameplay and it’s what we expected. The animations, especially when it comes to the celebrations, seem to be a step up. The explosions are better too overall when it comes to details. After the flash of yellow/orange and red you then get the black smoke. Now hopefully this signifies whether it’s safe to proceed through their path or not is yet to be explored. The new mode is welcome for sure as it’s just more options and more ways to play. There’s quite a bit more they can actually do here.
Overall Super Bomberman R 2 looks like it’s going to be a blast just like the previous game. The matter of how smooth the gameplay will be, especially when compared to the previous one, matters. It’s colourful and looks fun as always. There are few questions concerning the multiplayer modes but these things can be found. The developers ‘Konami’ have done a fantastic job so far. X35 Earthwalker is looking forward to using bombs. Super Bomberman R 2 may have more explosions and a castle but those two get nothing down in the presence of… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Back 4 Blood is a cooperative First Person shooter zombie game developed by ‘Turtle Rock Studios‘ and published by ‘Warner Bros Games‘. Back 4 Blood is an excellent game but got unfairly bashed by the ignorant gaming community. Another victim of this like the Callisto Protocol. X35 Earthwalker did a whole podcast episode talking about Back 4 Blood. So check that out as well. Back 4 Blood is definitely better than Left 4 Dead 2. Let’s take a look.
Let’s not make this long as there’s a whole podcast on this as well. For starters Left 4 Dead 2 was released in 2009. An old game like that is not beating a new game like Back 4 Blood. The huge gap in time means a gap in technology and software. So it’s obvious that Back 4 Blood has superior graphics and visuals. The levels look much better as well. The character designs are more detailed. That’s the obvious stuff.
Left 4 Dead 2 has 4 characters and only one of them is actually memorable. Back 4 Blood has 8 characters right off the bat but an additional 4 as additional content. So a total of 12 characters. So Back 4 Blood has 3 times more characters. More options. What’s also better is that Back 4 Blood’s characters have abilities. Each character has an effect for themselves and then a buff for their team. So for example a character might have a maximum stamina boost for themself but then grants faster stamina regeneration for the whole team. So yeah, remember that there’s 12 of them.
Next off course is the ridden… the zombies/infected. There’s more threats and ridden variety than what you have in Left 4 Dead 2. Left 4 Dead 2 has regular zombies, jockey, smoker, spitter, boomer, charger, hunter, tank and witch. Each of course do their own thing. For example the tank is the biggest, strongest and most dangerous. Witch only attacks with lethal strikes when started or disturbed by players. Jockey likes to hop on players to incapacitate players and render them useless. Smoker tries to kidnap players with its long tongue. Charger believes in charging you down to pin you and do big damage.
In Back 4 Blood you have: regular ridden, snitcher, Tallboy, Reeker, Stinger, shredder, ripper, sentinel, urchin and these have variants too and ones that have armour too, making them even more. For example there’s three types of sentinels which each have different annoying attacks like an actual swarm and the other lobs like fire bombs. The Tank is like the boss enemy of Left 4 Dead 2 but not an actual boss. Back 4 Blood actually has bosses with health bars, so another step up over Left 4 Dead 2. There’s currently 3 bosses at least that you can encounter even in a level as a surprise guest. Ogre, Hag and Berserker. Each one is a major problem. Ogre is the largest thing ever and can hurl massive boulder like projectiles. Hag is basically the superior witch as when startled it chases the player down and proper chomps down on them. Than can escape by digging into the ground. The Berserker is armoured up and leaps great distances to slam and throw players around. Basically a discount Berserker from Gears of War. So way more threats and enemies in Back 4 Blood.
Next up are weapons. There’s way more weapons in Back 4 Blood. More ranged weapons, more melee weapons, more throwable weapons. M4, M16, MP5, UMP45, Ak-47, RPK and way more rifles and guns of different types too. Shotguns, snipers and rifles like the M1. So whatever is your style you can do it. Even a sawed off shotgun. There’s bow and arrows with the arrows being infinite. Melee weapons there’s spiked baseball bats, axe, machete and even wolverine claws. There’s Molotov, pipe bombs (of course), grenades, smoke grenade, flash bang and let’s just say green glow substance to attract ridden to it. There’s also support items too like a stun gun to free yourself from being incapacitated by a special ridden that grabs you. We will say that the pipe bomb in Left 4 Dead 2 has a much better explosion than Back 4 Blood.
Another big advantage Back 4 Blood has are the weapon attachments. Both have them but Back 4 Blood has much more and deeper mechanics concerning it. Nozzle, magazine/bullets, scope and stock. The one you equip will have different parts and there’s different grades to the parts from common all the way to legendary. Even the melee weapons have attachments. Giving damage resistance, increased damage, melee speed, movement speed and more. So clearly Back 4 Blood has more mechanics and deeper than Left 4 Dead 2. Back 4 Blood even has a full weapons range for basically every weapon you can find in the game. Pick em up, try em out. Every throwable and attachment is there too. So you can get a feel for them, see the difference the attachments make and see the exact damage with the targets. There’s even a flamethrower!!! And it’s mad strong.
The last major factor that puts Back 4 Blood way above Left 4 Dead 2 is the card system. These cards completely change the game. Use these cards to create builds. Some builds increase your damage with a certain weapon. Some increase your health. Others gave increased damage resistance. Some are a trade like -5% health but gain 40% stamina. When you unlock the strongest cards you can make yourself ridiculously strong. X35 Earthwalker the one true Earthwalker, the legendary soldier himself has multiple builds and he is over powered. There’s a melee build where it’s basically impossible for him to die while fighting. He has a mighty shooting build where he never needs to reload and does massive damage with guns.
Back 4 Blood has received additional content so more things have arrived. There’s lots happening and when done on some of the hardest difficulties, things can get insane and intense. Left 4 Dead 2 is very easy. Easy game. Your melee attack is over powered. Back 4 Blood is a much harder game and requires far more strategy and good gameplay to beat, instead of spamming melee. This isn’t everything that Back 4 Blood does better than Left 4 Dead 2 but it’s already really clear which game is better. X35 Earthwalker is never wrong. Back 4 Blood may be better than Left 4 Dead 2 but neither are own the level off… the ‘Earth Walk!
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a team based horror game developed by ‘Sumo Nottingham‘ and published by ‘Gun Interactive‘. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre came out already and it’s available on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and pc. X35 Earthwalker has decided to look into this game and it’s got his attention. So here are some thoughts from X35 Earthwalker on The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Let’s take a look.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre has the murderous Leather face family squaring up with the survivors. The survivors have to escape the house, facility or wherever they are held captive while the evil family tries to kill them. Simple. Now straight away players will make a comparison to ‘Dead by Daylight’. Similar but very clear differences for sure. Now straight up, X35 Earthwalker never cared for Dead by Daylight. We know about Dead by Daylight, the hunting villains, the traps and mechanics but never played and never wanted to. We can already confirm that The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a better game than Dead by Daylight. Feed grandpa…
What’s sad is that when a new game comes in and even sort off steps on another established games territory, the fanbase of the established game at dumb and hate the new game. The left 4 dead 2 fans attacked Back 4 Blood. Back 4 Blood is better than Left 4 dead 2. So far it looks like The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is having a good time and bringing in lots of new players to this genre of gaming. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre has potential to do even more like locations and events. Feed grandpa?
From what we have seen so far it definitely looks like things are heavily in the favour of the killer family. They seem much stronger right now. We will say that we don’t know about the skill trees for each character. We know how it works, like increasing the savagery of leather face to do more damage for example but not the exact buffs it gives, unlocks and perks down the line and therefore the synergy and builds you can make. Who knows… maybe a focused powerful build can make Leland A survivor) bully the killers and tilt the whole favour to the victims. When you compare what these characters can do and the objective, it gets crazy. In Dead by daylight there’s one killer but in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre… there’s multiple. Feed grampa!
Just Sissy alone is a game changer. She can relentlessly chase down the victims and place the biggest amount of stress and pressure on survivors. She can go through gaps and crawl spaces too. Meaning the survivors are never safe. Then she’s poisoning people on top. You can hide by a gap, then blow poison in that area as a victim comes through and slash them up… easy kill. The hitch hiker is also chasing people down and going through certain spots too. He then set traps at crucial locations to slow you down. The cook is pad locking certain doors and locking things down. Less options for the survivors… and he has super hearing. Johnny is out here with powerful consecutive attacks and track players down to their almost exact location. Then big bad but stupid leather face who’s out here destroying obstacles and creating paths for his family. It’s good that his chainsaw alerts victims to where he is. Feed grandpa?!
The survivors have sound detection, faster unlocks, a shoulder bash, pain tolerance basically and a big second wind for sprinting. Of course the skill tree will change things for sure but it’s definitely one sided by the looks of it. Now off course there are factors like communication skills and team work, the obstacles in the map themselves and that there’s multiple escape routes. We even saw players who escaped the map in a. matter of minutes. Like an insanely fast escape. Obviously since players will now be aware of this and the fuses, skilful family members will be aware and ready to stop that from happening. We definitely need to see more amazing gameplay from the survivors instead of cheap tactics that only work temporarily of the ignorance of murderer players. Feed grandpa()
This will lead to mind games between both sides and we already have advanced tactics in mind that we haven’t seen players do. Makes sense as X35 Earthwalker is the smartest person on the planet. Some youtubers say foolish things, when asked which side is stronger, like “it depends on the team”. That a response for the lazy and ignorant. No one wants such a lame answer. Currently the family is clearly stronger. The only time they have a hard time or lose is when they mess up or have a new player who doesn’t know much about the game. Feed grandpa-
Fine we will address grandpa. You guys keep bringing it up. Grandpa is the strongest member of the murder family. He makes things even more in the families favour. Get him activated as soon as possible! He will automatically slow down the victims as they have to stay still or spend time trying to take grandpa out. At max level which isn’t that hard to do, he completely destroys the victims by revealing them completely whether they are staying still for not. If the victims want to take too long and play hide and seek, then work on grandpa and they will regret it. Grandpa probably use to be the beast titan back in the day. Just listen to that howl/scream/roar. People sissy be collecting blood real easy. Too man players and youtubers forget to top grandpa up. Humph… amateurs.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre does have very graphic stuff happening which is needed. We like the different executions of the murder family. From the sadistic and laughing while killing, to the carefully placed slices and just straight up brutal kills with chainsaw. Many people like this game for a reason. The dumbest player we’ve ever seen with the worst gameplay ever was a dude named ltg. He was the worst victim player we ever saw. Now actually good players make the game fun and interesting to watch. Giving more of an adventure feel. We definitely look forward to seeing more of this game. X35 Earthwalker definitely expects more to come. Now The Texas Chain Saw Massacre may have a killer family but they wouldn’t stand a chance against… the ‘Earth walk!’
Hello Engineer: Scrap Machines Constructor is a multiplayer construction game developed and published by ‘tinyBuild‘. Hello Engineer is said to be coming out the 17th of August 2023 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and pc. It’s already on Stadia. Hello Engineer is out here trying to build something big. X35 Earthwalker is greatest inventor ever. Let’s take a look.
Hello Engineer: Scrap Machines Constructor is all about players doing lots of construction and building of vehicles and other machinery. All this to overcome obstacles and challenges in an amusement park. Your neighbor, who is described as “creepy” is the antagonist. He also has evil bots. So even the neighbour wants to be Doctor Eggman. That’s the story basically.
So this is what Hello Engineer: Scrap Machines Constructor brings to the table. You still have the neighbour, he’s still being creepy and there’s aspects of puzzles. You got to understand what’s going on, come up with a solution and it has to be done through your construction. We do like the change of genre and direction as it’s good to try new things and add more flavours to the meal.
We checked out some Hello Engineer: Scrap Machines Constructor gameplay and it’s what we expected. Hello Neighbor style for sure and graphics. There’s gaps and jumps to make. There’s ramps and even what looks like a full race course section. You can build a lot of things. The size, the Fram, the shape, the tire types and size of course. You can even construct things that fly. Yeah, as in you got flames coming out to propel something into the air sort of like a rocket.
Overall Hello Engineer: Scrap Machines Constructor looks like a good game. If you like the Hello neighbor universe or maybe the neighbor himself then you shouldn’t have much of a problem. If you are creative and like Minecraft then you should be good too. The graphics are good for the style. Seems to be a good amount of creativity. The developers ‘tinyBuild’ have done a good job by the looks of it. We at X35 Earthwalker are not interested in this game but will have to hear what happens. Now Hello Engineer: Scrap Machines Constructor may have rocket vehicles but those can’t reach the heights of… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Quantum: Recharged is an arcade, retro style game developed by ‘SneakyBox‘ and published by ‘Atari‘. Quantum: Recharged is said to be coming out the 17th of August 2023 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Atari VCS, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and pc. It’s good to see a re-release of an old game and modernised. X35 Earthwalker will see how interesting this is. Let’s take a look.
Quantum: Recharged has a very simple premise. Players must encircle and trap the enemies with your ship to create zones that destroys them. Pretty cool and different from the straight up bullet hell or arcade shooter. So the aim is to avoid damage at all costs. Be quick and stay mobile. Players will need to get sort of tactical.
So those who play the original will know what to do in Quantum: Recharged. Quantum: Recharged has the improved sounds, graphics, visuals, animations, scenery etc… But wait, there’s more! arcade mode off course as you got to play the game first. There’s leaderboards which means things get competitive. All those with no life will score high. Power ups, as new flavours need to be added. Power ups include things like an extra life, unlimited dodges and even freezing your enemies.
Challenge mode is a thing. Quantum: Recharged challenge mode has 25 so called, “hand-crafted” levels which have their own challenges. For example, defeat a certain number of enemies within a time limit. Not very challenging if you ask us. Step it up Quantum: Recharged. The best thing they got going for them though is the fact that Quantum: Recharged has local co-op. So grab a family member or fiend, hand them a controller and have some fun.
We checked out some Quantum: Recharged gameplay and it’s what we expected. Quantum: Recharged is definitely fast paced. Very fast. So make sure to get use to the speed. Dash around, avoid damage and danger, encircle foes and beat them. It’s so arcade and classic looking. Flashy, lights and action.
Overall Quantum: Recharged looks like a fun game. A good fun game. Classic fun and simple formula. The developers ‘SneakyBox’ have done a very good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to hear how this game does. Quantum: Recharged may have a rerelease but it’s still hasn’t got the same quality level as… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Under the Waves is a narrative adventure game developed by ‘Parallel studios‘ and published by ‘Quantic Dream‘. Under the Waves is said to be coming out the 29th of august 2023 on the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and pc. Under the Waves is clearly trying to do something deep here. X35 Earthwalker has tamed the deep and so will be the judge here. Let’s take a look.
In Under the Waves players control a dude called Stan. He’s a professional diver. He’s in deep… literally. In the ocean under the waves all by himself. The year is 1970 and it’s a futuristic advanced 1970 to have this kind of tech. Stan is having a struggle in his mind. He experienced a “life-changing loss”. He can’t seem to get over it and move forwards. He’s got a decision to make. What will he do?
Smart move by Under the Waves. Now Stan being in the north sea is actually a good representation of his situation. He is all alone and isolated from the rest of people. Yet Stan mentally isolated himself and made himself all alone. He is right where he wants to be. Can he stay there forever though? As he gets deeper in his mental isolation, things start to happen in the ocean. As in strange events… deep down.
We checked out some Under the Waves gameplay and it’s mostly what we expected. Under the Waves stays having you dive down into the ocean. Mix of gameplay and cinematic to make the ocean more active. Use the submarine and see different things. Things like a sunken ship. Big cool creatures like even a whale. Under the Waves has Stan equipped with a special wetsuit. Expect underwater plants and even plants. They got a story here so pay attention. Heard it was deep.
Overall Under the Waves seems like a good game. The graphics are very good. The lighting is very good. The visuals could have been better. The ocean with all the life in it needs to be presented and displayed in excellent levels. It needs to be big. Also looking so big compared to us. Lots of life and look the part. The ocean is arguably going to be the biggest thing for us concerning Under the Waves. Hopefully the story will be as narrative driving and deep as we hope… and as portrayed by the developers. The developers ‘Parallel studios’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what it brings forth. Now Under the Waves may be in the ocean but it ain’t deep enough for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Blasphemous 2 is an action metroidvania game developed by ‘The Game Kitchen‘ and published by ‘Team17‘. Blasphemous 2 is said to be coming out the 24th of August 2023 on the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and pc. Blasphemous 2 is here to bring more weird stuff our way. X35 Earthwalker will have to see if this game got the goods or not. Let’s take a look.
Blasphemous 2 is described as the “second scripture in the blasphemous series.” The main dude is back, also known as the “penitent one”. The story continues from the DLC ‘wounds of eventide’. The weird stuff. Well their whole game is weird but do y’all remember the heart in the sky, all about the return of the miracle and the birth of a new so called miracle child. Yeah, so make sure you up to date concerning the story for the better experience.
So yeah, woken up again… but in a new and strange land. You aren’t near what’s suppose to be your final resting place. You have to pass the time somehow so might as well get up and explore this place. There are guaranteed long forgotten secrets. So make sure to discover them. There’s always something going on with how games like this end and then want to start up the sequel.
We heard there’s a whole horde of ugly and weird enemies waiting for you. Hopefully there’s at least one good looking foe. Blasphemous 2 is suppose to have a more full and non-linear world. This also means there’s more to do. Take the npcs for example. There’s a bunch of new ones. Some will help, others will ask for help. Some will send you on “death defying” missions to get forgotten items.
You know Blasphemous 2 is going to have more weird bosses. They are described as twisted and that’s fair. Off course get ready for their attack patterns and learn the right timing and openings. They should be easier to beat thanks to upgrades to the combat. New weapons, executions, bigger combos and improvable skillset.
We checked out some Blasphemous 2 gameplay and it’s what we expected. Animations look slightly better. The world has stand out locations and the overall visuals are are better overall but it’s tough to tell from here. How far will Blasphemous 2 go concerning the designs, details and bosses. They did wuss out on some things last time.
Overall, Blasphemous 2 seems like a good game. X35 Earthwalker was never interested in the Blasphemous series. The first game failed to impress or even interest him. Hopefully they do better this time. The developers ‘The Game Kitchen’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will wait to see if this game will impress us. Now Blasphemous 2 may have a hew land to explore but it’s too small and simple for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
The Expanse: A Telltale Series is a narrative adventure game developed by ‘TellTale games‘ and ‘Deck Nine games‘. The Expanse: A Telltale Series episode 1 is said to be coming out the 27th of July 2023 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and pc. X35 Earthwalker is very aware of the Telltale series games. Time for a new adventure. The Expanse: A Telltale Series might be up to something here. Let’s take a look.
The Expanse: A Telltale Series episode 1 is all the way up in space. So yeah, there’s no jumping ship this time. You basically follow a lady called Camina Drummer on a ship called the Artemis. Her choices of course will determine everything. You know the drill by now… it’s a Telltale game. There’s a mutiny… a bloody one. So yeah, not everything is as it seems, think about things clearly, get ready for quick time events and pay attention to clues.
Now comparisons will always be made. Previous Telltale titles either had illusions, human threats or monsters. It’s looking like human threats again. The mutiny will probably be the most in your face threat but there’s also going to be space pirates… no, not Metroid space pirates. Actual raid, attack and probably board type pirates.
We checked out some The Expanse: A Telltale Series gameplay and it’s what we expected for sure. Exploration is the key thing in the game. This time you are exploring in space, on the outskirts of an asteroid belt. You will even get the chance to scavenge wrecked ships… in zero g. Hint to players: Camina Drummer’s resolve matters here. Those who know the story already through certain media will haver an advantage here. We prefer jumping in blind and getting the new experience.
Overall The Expanse: A Telltale Series looks like an alright game. We have sort of low expectations for this game. We know exactly what we want from this game as well. Visually it looks very good. The voice acting is very good too. There’s a lot of character interaction as well. Wonder if betrayal gets thrown into the mix. The developers ‘TellTale games‘ and ‘Deck Nine games‘ have done a veery good job so far. Looks like a lot of work went into it. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an eye open for this game. Now The Expanse: A Telltale Series may have dangers in space but those are simple stuff compared to… the ‘Earth Walk!’
