Hey @majormitch!Congrats on the degree man, that's awesome! You plannin' on going for a PhD down the road? I hope your new job treats you well!You had a much more productive gaming month than I. I don't have a PS4 so no Axiom verge for me. I did try it at PAX though and realized I needed to buy it as soon as it's available on PC. Very glad to hear it holds up all the way through.Totally agree with you on "metroidvania" that and "roguelike" I think are terms where we can do better. We don't have DOTAlike or Doom Clone or GTA clone anymore fwiw.I've been busy lately so I haven't gamed a whole let lately, but I did manage to knock out Batman : Arkham city in April. Boy did I enjoy that game and didn't expect to. I don't know if you remember the exchange we had about collectibles a while back, but B:AC was a game that handled about as well as I've seen it done in an Open World game.It's a subtle thing but one of things I enjoyed most about the game was that it had no minimap, just a compass of sorts you could use to orient yourself to the next objective. One problem I always have in in open world games is I end up staring at the minimap the whole time instead of soaking in the environment to navigate effectively. Especially if I'm going at fast speeds (like driving). It was really nice to be able to keep my focus on Gotha...err "Arkham City" itself.I just finished Act 2 of Broken Age tonight (replayed the whole thing actually), so for once we are playing the same thing! I'll look forward to swapping impressions with you once you've finished.
