Here’s a Deeper Look at Midnight Suns

I’m intrigued by the upcoming Marvel superheroes video game Midnight Suns. I like a good Marvel video game, and I really enjoyed the XCOM games by the same studio. So Midnight Suns could be a lot of fun. And this longer video shows us how actual gameplay is going to work.

I still don’t know if I fully understand the card-based fighting mechanic…but it could still work. Move your characters around, and their powers are just shaped like cards instead of…I dunno, something more traditional like button presses. But yeah, Midnight Suns looks like it could be a fun game. I suppose I might wait to see some reviews before I dive in, but that’s a decision for future Sean. Right now, this just looks like a potentially cool video game.

Midnight Suns will come out sometime next year, I believe.


Midnight Suns is Going to Be All About Tank Tops

I have taken a particular interest in the upcoming Marvel video game Midnight Suns. I’m a huge fan of the XCOM series, and the idea of taking one of those games and filling it with Marvel superheroes sounds fun! And yesterday we got our first look at the actual gameplay instead of just pre-rendered cut scenes.

And I gotta say…everybody’s wearing tank tops in this game.

Right? Everybody dresses down casually at some point in this game and has a themed tank top. Kinda neat!

All kidding aside, I have no idea what to make of that actual gameplay footage. It looks to be built on the foundation of XCOM, but there are cards? And big special moves? Looks like it could be cool. I’m definitely looking forward to trying this game out.

Midnight Suns comes out in March.


Marvel: Midnight Suns Looks Fascinating

I didn’t really know what to make about the reveal trailer for Midnight Suns, a new Marvel video game coming sometime next year. It’s…it’s a lot to take in. And honestly, it looks like one of those cheap Marvel mobile games. See for yourself.

The trailer looks like madness. But maybe in a good way?

The one thing keeping me tethered to hope for Midnight Suns is that it is produced by Firaxis, a game studio responsible for the XCOM games. I recently got into XCOM this pandemic and I really, really enjoyed XCOM 2. The in-field battle tactics were superb.

Firaxis people have come out to say that Midnight Suns is not just going to be a superhero skin over the top of XCOM core gameplay, but they’ve also said the game is going to be about in-field battle tactics. So we’ll just have to wait for a gameplay trailer to know for sure. But the general idea of an XCOM style game, where your squad is comprised of a bunch of Marvel superheroes, sounds phenomenal. I am here for that kind of game.

So we’ll find out when Marvel: Midnight Suns comes out in March 2022!
