I'm Axel, level/quest designer at Ubisoft, currently working on Assassin's Creed Origins.
I started my career at Larian Studios and worked on games like Divinity: Original Sin. My main focus is to create memorable stories and characters. #context
I'm a big Nintendo fan desperate for a new Metroid. My other favorite Nintendo series are Donkey Kong Country, Fire Emblem, Pokemon and The Legend of Zelda.
Overall, I'm into a lot of different genres, but particularly action/adventure, RPG, and platforming. And FIFA!
I currently own a Wii U, 3DS and PlayStation 4.
Let's be friends!

Astral Chain (Switch)
How about that!
Surprise announcement in today's Nintendo Direct.
From the official game description:
As part of a police special task force, it’s up to you to fight against mysterious, alien-like creatures who have invaded the world.
In the Ark, a multi-cultural city in the near future, disaster strikes when gates to another dimension suddenly appear! Dangerous creatures begin to emerge, attacking the people and polluting the land, and normal police forces are unable to compete with them. To stand up against these threats, a brand new, special police unit known as Neuron is formed.
Choose between two playable characters – one male, one female – on your adventure. The character you don’t choose also appears as your younger twin, and a fellow member of Neuron.
In order to resist the creatures, humanity developed a special weapon: the Legion. The Legion acts as your partner, and helps with your investigations. However, it’s in battle where the Legion shows its real ability...
Work together with the Legion and use all sorts of combat styles to fight your enemies. You could both attack the same enemy simultaneously, target different opponents, or send your Legion on the offensive while you support it with items. Use this synergetic action system to battle and explore together!
Making his directorial debut and known for his work as the game designer on NieR: Automata, Takahisa Taura is responsible for the concept and planning of ASTRAL CHAIN. Hideki Kamiya, creator of the Bayonetta™ series, is in charge of supervision. The character design is by manga artist Masakazu Katsura, creator of ZETMAN and Video Girl Ai.
If you're not familiar with Takahisa Taura:
Enough said! Who's hyped?
RE: That's News!
@mbun Sure but when all the things you listed, and more, are revealed in one Direct, it's very unfair to say there's no "new games" just because it didn't feature the one or two series he's interested in. We know more things are coming, every series will get its time in the sun eventually.
Anyway, this was an amazing showing and there is a lot to be excited about!
RE: Days Gone (PS4)
@bam541 Yeah seriously, I was really hoping they could finally convince me with that trailer, especially since they've been hyping it for days. And like you said, I could barely hear what she was saying, and it just didn't sell me enough on their relationship when the whole purpose of the trailer was to make feel something, anything.
I don't think there's anything they can do at this point to sell me on this game.
RE: The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2018!
Also imagine everyone not voting for God of War because "it will win anyway".
Yes that's what I would hate to happen.
I really think it's better if everyone votes with their heart, but obviously I'm not in your head, if somebody decides to make a strategic vote I won't know so I can't stop you.
Personally I left Smash out this time and gave an honorable mention to Yoku's Island Express, because I wanted to reward originality. But I wouldn't have put Yoku as my GOTY just to give it a chance to show in the final rankings. If nobody else but me votes for it, then it just means it shouldn't be there.
We can still give shout-outs to any game we want once it's all over!
