It seems like a foregone conclusion when looking at Axiom Verge that comparisons are going to be made to Metroid. It is, without doubt, similar in more ways than it differs from Nintendo's iconic franchise. The differences matter, though, and Axiom Verge merges classic environment design with new mechanical twists, producing a game that feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.

Aaru's Awakening is an unrelenting challenge of a game, which places players in the world of Lumenox, a mystical land in a precarious state of balance between four deities who rule it, Dawn, Day, Dusk, and Night. Now that balance is being disrupted, as Dawn sends a faithful warrior, Aaru, to travel the domains of the other gods on a quest to remake the world. Dark and twisted lands await.

Anodyne is a cool little top-down dungeon crawler with an obvious problem: it isn’t Zelda. Though I would normally feel like a jerk criticizing a small indie title for not stacking up to Nintendo’s legendary series, the game itself forces the comparison, lifting not just the basic gameplay elements of the classic 2D Zelda games, but also various art cues and enemy designs.

In an odd move, Ubisoft chose to split the King Washington DLC storyline into three separate parts. We've gotten The Infamy, then The Betrayal, and now, everything comes full circle for Connor and ol' George in The Redemption. Not a whole lot has happened so far, but with the final chapter in sight, Ubisoft has a chance to tie it all together in a nice bow and justify its delivery scheme.

Ubisoft has a lot to prove with its "what if" story of an evil George Washington. The first episode wasn't nearly as enthralling as Ubisoft had promised, mostly due to the fact that it felt like a lot was held back in favor of splitting it into three parts. The second portion, titled The Betrayal, in some ways, is a step forward -- a very, very small step forward, and a step back, that is.
