Episode 85 - Axiom Verge

26Jul

In this month's episode of the PlayCast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) are joined by Collectorcast co-host and friend Bil (wildbil52) to discus the indie, Metroidvania hit, Axiom Verge. As usual, we discuss the ins-and-outs of the gameplay, the graphics and environments, the sounds, and unlike other episodes, spend a great deal of time on the story. In this month's Concertcast segment, the boys add to your summer listening playlist as they dive into their favorite albums of 1997. Will Shawn's first experience with the game be favorable?  And will Rich and Bil come away loving Axiom Verge as much as they did when first playing it?  Tune in and find out!

As always, we are happy to hear your thoughts on the games we play on our discussion page (linked below). We will respond to your comments and are always happy to discuss the games in detail.
