Axiom Verge

I wanted to write something up about a sweet lookin' game that's slated to be coming out in 2013. Planned for release for the PC and XBox 360 as a downloadable title, Axiom Verge appears to be...fucking...amazing...*drool*

See for yourself!

Official trailer from the Axiom Verge website.

With a sweet retro graphical style and awesome-sounding music, this game seems to be hitting all the right notes with me and I may have peed a little when I first saw this video. The action looks tight and intense, and the atmosphere and setting appear to be absolutely unsettling and brooding in the best retro sci-fi way possible. The official site even states the following:

"Axiom Verge takes its inspiration from greats such as Blaster Master, Contra, Bionic Commando, Rygar, Cave Story, and, of course, Metroid."

Wow...so basically elements from six awesome games are all packed into this sweet little gem! Sign me up, cause I'm keeping an eye on this one, and you damn well should be, too...trust me. Once this game is safely in my hands, you can expect a thorough review of it. Of course, that won't be for a while since the release is a bit far off...but I'm already looking forward to writing it.

This year's Electronics Entertainment Expo has come and gone, and with it came an initial peak of intense hype at first...followed by what seems to be a generally agreed-upon "Meh" afterwards. I was absolutely pumped for this year's E3. For starters, Nintendo was going to give us specifics on their new console, the Wii U, as well as a lineup of games that were on the slate for it. This alone was enough to get me riled up...just the thought of seeing what would come out of their conference, but of course there were other potential points of interest as well. Conferences were on the way from Microsoft, Sony, EA, and Ubisoft...and within all of those presentations, there had to be some amazing things!
