Re: 2018/4/7: Nintendo Switch: Axiom Verge

The reviews here always take the idiosyncrasies of specific ports into account. Axiom Verge may ideally be an A+ game (not that I've played it myself), but the Switch version is patently not ideal. Were the PS4 version reviewed, it would likely receive an A+ grade. I know how the grades work and wh...

Re: 2018/4/7: Nintendo Switch: Axiom Verge

As a show of appreciation for Tom Happ in creating one of my all-time favorite games, I went and bought the physical "Multiverse Edition" of Axiom Verge, which also got me the making-of documentary, the soundtrack (which went in my car CD player the moment I left the store I bought it from...

Re: 2018/4/7: Nintendo Switch: Axiom Verge

Nice. I have the Multiverse version on PS4 and really looking forward to playing it now. I beat Super Metroid a few years ago, but never loved it. But one of my favorite games is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Do you think this game would appeal to Castlevania fans too, or is it truly just a M...

Re: 2018/4/7: Nintendo Switch: Axiom Verge

I will add a few things for people that will soon be playing this game. First, there is SO MUCH to find and do in this game. I eventually had to look online a few times to figure out how to get somewhere, only to watch a video of a person showing how they got there, but with a whole mess of weapons ...

Re: Finally got a Switch!

I love the Switch, and I have alot of games for it, but my favorite one, by a wide margin, is Axiom Verge.

Ah, the glory days of EGM. Whem game magazines had substance. I loved seeing the separate scores and mini reviews from each critic for each game. I used to read those over and over.

Re: 2018/3/12: Playstation 4: Mark McMorris Infinite Air

Actually I'd like to see you bump one of these games up half a letter grade or so based on their sole redeeming quality. Are you sure this game can't be given an F+ based entirely on the fact that the game has a nice looking label on the disk? Maybe the cursor moves fairly smooth when you give your...

Re: It took Axiom Verge on the Switch to get me excited about gaming again...

I wanted to add that this game is absolutely worth the price of admission. I have as many hours into this game as I have put into any game of the last decade and it's still going strong. One of my initial fears was paying a decent amount for a game of this type, concerned that I had payed only a bit...

Re: It took Axiom Verge on the Switch to get me excited about gaming again...

Speaking of "small studio", in my love for the game I've been researching its history and development, and as far as I can tell, the ENTIRE thing, including the separate-soundtrack-worthy music was made by one guy. This makes me all the more impressed with the game.
