Doom will release on the Switch November 10

Bethesda Softworks has announced that Doom on the Nintendo Switch will release on November 10.

You can check out a brief overview on the title below.


Game Details

Developed by id software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and created multiplayer Deathmatch, Doom returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes.

Story

You’ve come here for a reason. The Union Aerospace Corporation’s massive research facility on Mars is overwhelmed by fierce and powerful demons, and only one person stands between their world and ours. As the lone Doom Marine, you’ve been activated to do one thing – kill them all.

Key Features

  • A Relentless Campaign – There is no taking cover or stopping to regenerate health as you beat back Hell’s raging demon hordes. Combine your arsenal of futuristic and iconic guns, upgrades, movement and an advanced melee system to knock-down, slash, stomp, crush, and blow apart demons in creative and violent ways.
  • Return of id Multiplayer – Dominate your opponents in Doom‘s signature, fast-paced arena-style combat. In both classic and all-new game modes, annihilate your enemies utilizing your personal blend of skill, powerful weapons, vertical movement, and unique power-ups that allow you to play as a demon.

NCG Review – Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle (PS4, Switch)

As Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle V was first announced, I was really excited for the 3rd person arena fighter/shooter. Especially since Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet was a really fun in-depth title. When I jumped into Burst Battle on for the first time, I found out I was getting into something from a different nature.kobuto_jp_ss6.png

Audio

Like any Touhou titles, the music is terrific! Compiled of remixes of character theme songs, the music is something that all players can enjoy in this title. The sound effects sort of work, but can get repetitive, and other than that, there is nothing more, or new. A lot of the sound effects were just reused sounds from Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet.kobuto_jp_ss5.png

Gameplay

This is usually where Touhou titles really shine, but in Burst Battle, the development just wasn’t executed right. First off, there is no video or game play tutorial, which this title really needs to have in order for players to understand what they are doing. There is only a manual that is on the main menu, which many players will probably miss since it’s in such a weird spot.kobuto_jp_ss2.png

Once players finally start to figure out the game, they will notice it has the core mechanics of an arena battle game. The down side is that it is slow, clunky and there is no character balance. Players will spend most of their time waiting on each stamina meter to refill to try to use the most powerful attack through a match. As for game modes, players will have a choice of the single player story mode, arcade mode, score attack, VS, and online. touhou-kobuto-v-burst-battle-3

When jumping into the single player story mode, one of the first and upsetting part was that I didn’t get to pick a character. Automatically, I was thrown into the story of Reimu Hakurei. After completing her story, you are forced to do the next character story and so on. Wasn’t too big of a deal, but I would have liked to choose which character to play. As for the other modes, it’s just the story mode without the story.2

Verdict

It really disappointed me as a fan of arena battle style titles that Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle missed out on being a great title. It has the mechanics, the music… the pointless story, but I felt like it had no signs of a fast pace, bullet hell, Touhou feel that the other titles have. This is not a game to pick up for the price, but rather a borrow from a friend that is a hardcore Touhou fan. It sucks to say but I have to give this title a 1 out of 10.

(Rumor) You might not want to miss the Nintendo Direct tomorrow/ Smash Switch?

(So we usually don’t like posting rumors of upcoming titles, but this caught my interest.)

A few days ago Nintendo announced that they will be hosting a Nintendo Direct on September 13, 2017, which will feature Mario Odyssey as well as upcoming 3DS and Switch titles. The video feed is expected to run for nearly 45 minutes and will kick off at 3 p.m. PDT / 6 p.m. EDT at this link.

Noting the date, fans were quick to point out that September 13th actually marks three years since the latest Smash Bros. release. On the same day back in 2014, Smash 4 landed on the 3DS in Japan.

Could Nintendo have something planned on the Smash Bros. date, or could this just be fans hoping for a new title? Well I guess we will find out tomorrow during the Nintendo Direct.
