Blind Fate: Edo no Yami Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET The past decade has seen many action-platformers come and go, with few truly trying much new in the genre. That’s not an altogether bad thing — as it does give players a sense of immediate familiarity to a new game, but it does feel like the sub-genre has been stifled over the years. Blind Fate: Edo no Yami brings together both a feudal Japan and a post-modern cyberpunk Japanese setting while offering a blend of fast-paced and more strategic action. There’s nothing else like it on the market and that’s an impressive feat for a genre that has had so many entries in recent years. Yami is a samurai revived to battle the yokai, but blinded and reliant on his other senses to thrive. The lack of vision forces him to strength his other senses and the less he has to work with, the better he will do in more advanced combat and that situation applies to the player in a few different ways. While the player can generally see the world around them, there are times when that isn’t the case and unlike every other game on the market, your other senses in the real-world also help out in the game world as your own vision of the game can be obscured.

While the player will generally have a reasonably lit view to work with in a side-scrolling perspective, there are times when you are in darkness and have a minimal outline of a foe to work with based on the sense you choose, which is a fascinating approach. The heat sensor allows you to detect areas you can move to and from alongside a heat trail from an enemy. Sometimes, an enemy won’t have a heat trail — in which case, you may have to use the sense of smell. This comes in the form of smelling the blood and tracing it to the source — so if a foe has rampaged through an area and left a body trail, you can follow that trail to them and take them out. It’s a cool concept and one that blends in nicely with the combat, as you can finish foes off with slick finishers that mix in both a sense and a stick movement alongside a button price to deal massive damage. There are also QTE finishers available and in the case of both, other enemies can’t interrupt once they’re started. It’s clear that a lot of care went into the combat, which has a fair amount of variety to it that adds depth over time. Players can hack and slack and then dash through to not only avoid damage, but take out enemies. Dashing allows for faster platforming and movement throughout the non-combat areas as well.

Swords sing unseen

There’s a lot of variety within stages to blend in platforming and then some action. It’s a bit like Strider 2 in that regard where you have closed-off areas, a slick cyberpunk-infused Japan, but the flow of combat is completely different. Strider is all-action and there’s more of a stop and start flow to things here due to the different senses being involved. Blind Fate still does a fine job scratching the itch for an action-platformer — but will disappoint those wanting something that’s all-action. Thankfully, the blend of fast action and slower-pace does allow the player to have a bit of a break from button-mashing in regular battles and then especially in boss battles. There, the mix of offense and defense comes into play even more. Some boss battles evoke Shadow of the Colossus by having you work to get to a weak point and then hammer that down before doing more generalized damage. The flow of combat is natural and made better by strong animation work across the board. Both you and your enemies have slick animation and that allows timing attacks and counters to be done easier than in many games. The game’s setting is weird, sometimes cool, but ultimately missed opportunity. You are the Samurai Yami and in this weird future Earth, you are in the period of New Edo. It’s a post-Cyberpunk world, and I wish it was just an actual Cyberpunk one because the areas that take place in the past look way cooler than the rest of the game. Farming Simulator 17

There is a catch to these looks, and it’s that you’re blind! Yami was left for dead with his eyes eaten out and his arms chopped off. A friendly Tengu spirit finds him and attaches cybernetic limbs and a mask that enhances his senses of hearing, smell, and heat. This is the heart of the game, constantly changing between these senses as you fight your foes. It is really damned cool at first, but quickly, much like every other part of the game, it becomes insanely repetitive. You start the game off powered up with abilities you’ll quickly lose. These are just a few of the main upgrades you’ll unlock as you progress through the story. Once you have most of your abilities unlocked after a very long time of playing the game finally becomes almost mediocre to play. It takes far too long to get to this point, however. I was over 5 hours in before I had unlocked even a handful of upgrades and I see a lot of people who buy this game not lasting long enough for it to get to the point of being halfway decent to play. Controls are simple with X being your slice, Y being your ranged stun, B is for dodging, and A is for jumping. While playing as your cybernetically enhanced version you can double jump as well, there are brief periods where you play as your pre-enhanced self that are not fun at all.

Your sensors pierce the curtain of the past.

The right trigger is your block and eventual parry, the left trigger is for swapping senses, and the left bumper is for interacting with the environment at certain times. There is more you’ll unlock, very slowly, over your playthrough and while it can occasionally look really damned cool it never feels smooth while playing. The game features decent 3d graphics on a 2D plane, with occasional moments of brilliance in the art design. On the whole, it’s a pleasant-looking title, though the outdoor forest areas are rather bland. I much preferred the city sections but the levels there were few and far between. My time with the game was spent on PC where it ran well at Ultra settings. For a 29Gb install, I was disappointed at the low quality of many of the textures, though. If you set this game to a lower resolution it could easily pass for a late 360/early Xbox one title. The best part of the game is the audio. I mainly played with Japanese audio and subtitles but even the English VO is solid. The writing was solid and carried what otherwise was a rather basic plot. It was matched by voice acting that was fully committed to the tale being told. It is pretty damned serious most of the time, with little to no humor and it works. The music isn’t particularly memorable, but it fit the post-cyberpunk/ancient Japan vibe the game was going for and the sound effects were serviceable. Family, Friends and Strangers

Options-wise the game is light, with only three difficulties that mostly felt the same just with slightly different damage in and out numbers available. The game can be really damned hard, not because it’s clever and wants to test you, but because the hitboxes are routinely off, and your character can feel incredibly stiff to try and maneuver around with. The energy system that dictates your ability to block, parry, swing, and dodge is a massive annoyance as well. It’s far too punishing in the early stages and the boss fights were miserable to learn as I constantly felt like I was dying instantly to attacks that were far too hard to read ahead of them hitting me. Blind Fate shows potential for this rather new dev team. They nailed multiple parts of what it takes to be great, with the writing being solid and the voice acting being fantastic. It looks good but feels terrible to play, only getting to almost decent after many hours. It can feel wildly unfair but there is still just enough there that it may be worth checking out if you can find it at a decent price. It may not be the best Samurai game, but it’s got spirit. Blind Fate‘s graphics, however, are an interesting mix of good and oddly bad in ways that haven’t been seen before. The characters all look good and things like neon effects throughout night-time environments are stunning. Similarly, forest areas look beautiful with nice foliage, but some parts of the world look odd.

Find their weaknesses and destroy each one with a devastating finisher!

The visuals in Blind Fate: Edo no Yami look nice, particularly during the cutscenes or when you use your different senses. The story in this game is interesting and felt incredibly serious the whole time I played; there were only a few humorous moments. The voice acting in the English and Japanese audio tracks is very good; it was obvious that the voice actors were really into the story they were telling. The music has a futuristic, post-cyberpunk vibe, it wasn’t super memorable, but it fit the story. The game offers players three difficulties, with only minor differences between them, just changing how much damage you can do and how much you take. Blind Fate can be incredibly hard, and that isn’t on purpose, but because the hitboxes didn’t seem to be in the right spot a lot of the time. It felt that no matter what you did, Yami would constantly be taking damage when you thought you had avoided the attack. I died a lot during boss battles as trying to parry, block, or dodge attacks never worked as well as I expected.

Blind Fate: Edo no Yami is an interesting game that did many things well, like the story and the great voice acting. But it is incredibly difficult and feels unfair because of poor hit detection and the long time it takes to learn new skills. I think it definitely has potential and is worth checking out if you find it for a decent price, but be prepared to put in a lot of hours to get to the point where the action starts picking up! Many indoor and outdoor areas use fire effects, like flaming barrels or torches and in a bizarre-looking issue, none of these flames move at all. They’re completely static images and it sticks out like a sore thumb. Thankfully, every other part of the visual design shines, but it seems odd to have this even be a problem to begin with. Thankfully, Blind Fate‘s audio is across-the-board greatness. The soundtrack is exactly what it should be — using woodland instruments that fit the Japanese setting, but blending in more of a rock sound to fit the cyberpunk-infused world. In a surprise for a platformer, the game also has full voice acting that keeps a robotic sound throughout much of it to fit the cybernetic characters, but does a fine job of pairing nicely with the motion comics used for some of the story to get character motivations across.

Combat feels slow and repetitive. Your basic attacks don’t deal a lot of damage and the enemies are tanky. The game mitigates this with its gauge mechanic, in where you can activate a super attack if you hit the enemy X number times within a short amount time. But because of the stamina bar mechanic I found myself backing off and waiting for my stamina to regenerate in full before attempting an attack cycle on each enemy. All the while the enemies’ attack gauge is reset, and I’m stuck doing basic attacks again. I feel like parrying should contribute to enemies’ gauge build up, but I doesn’t. There are late game skills that do put enemies into stun states, in which you can QTE instant kill them; or just kill enemies outright. But until you unlock them, the combat will be slow and boring.
