Loved the Batman Arkham games don't @ me.
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!

RE: 2018 FIFA World Cup
Yay for Mexico, what a perfomance. Ochoa was a wall! And Lozano, this is your time to shine! He was my hero in my FIFA 17 career mode, glad to see real life has caught up.
In light of Argentina's, Germany's and Brazil's results, France's scrappy win doesn't feel so bad anymore! There's always some magic in the first matches, as the smaller teams go all out and big teams aren't perfectly calibrated yet. I would expect more "normal" results in the second and third matches, but who knows.
RE: [Official] What are you playing?
I'm halfway through Battle Chasers: Nightwar.
Very enjoyable, I love the art style and character design. The overall game structure is interesting with a main town hub, an overworld map and 8 dungeons where the meat of the game takes place. You control your character in a top-down view and must avoid traps, solve puzzles and can approach/avoid enemies a la Chrono Trigger.
One gripe I have is that characters not in your party do not level up, so you either have to stick with the same group throughout the game or grind to keep everyone at the same level. This means replaying dungeons, but the game at least offers an interesting mechanic in that you can pick a difficulty level at the start of each run, which yields better rewards. The dungeons layouts are randomly generated, you may not even face the same puzzles/events on your second run, so that makes it a bit easier to swallow.
The equipment and stats are fun to tinker with, not overly complex like Xenoblade, and each of the 5 playable characters feels distinct and useful, hard to pick my favourites.
There's also a superfluous and out-of-place fishing feature for some reason.
If you need a gorgeous, polished old-school JRPG on your Switch while waiting for Octopath Traveler, I highly recommend it!
RE: 2018 FIFA World Cup
Yeah that Spain-Portugal match was definitely a classic, Ronaldo was so focused and determined, love him or hate him, can't deny he's one of the all-time greatest. And very entertaining for a neutral indeed.
France struggled against Australia but got the 3 points in the end so that's what counts. The coach actually aligned the exact starting 11 I had been calling for so I can't complain, hopefully they'll improve match after match because that wasn't a world champion performance.
RE: WWE - Who is hyped!?
@sentinel-beach What a petty company.
My interest has been fading week after week since Wrestlemania, and I'm not even excited for Money in the Bank which is usually one of the most hype PPVs of the year. With the World Cup starting I don't even know when I'll have time to watch it. I hope they turn this around fast.
RE: 2018 FIFA World Cup
That's just crazy, has this ever happened so close to the start of the competition? They've already named Hierro as his replacement apparently. Curious to see what effect this will have on the team. Wouldn't mind having one less big team to worry about!
RE: Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! & Let's Go, Eevee! (Switch)
The Treehouse demo showed the game in action:
I have to say it looks gorgeous! And it seems like a full-fledged remake, the only major difference being how you capture Pokemon as we discussed before. But the rest is all there, leveling up, choosing moves, trainer battles, towns, NPCs, etc.
Also features details from the press release:
Candy Jar—Players can use a variety of Candies to strengthen their Pokémon in a training system introduced in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Later in the game, players will be able to send their Pokémon to Professor Oak to receive these Candies.
Link Trading and Battles—Players will be able to trade and engage in Single and Double Battles with other players online and via local wireless communication. Trading and battling online will require an active Nintendo Switch Online membership, a paid service launching this September.
I think I'm in!
RE: Ubisoft E3 Discussion. News, Predictions, Reactions, etc.
I thought it was a very solid show, they showed a lot of support for existing games and I felt like every other title had a strong showing.
I still can't get over the Star Fox / Starlink crossover, I did NOT see that coming, I was freaking out. I don't even like Star Fox but that was such a cool moment!
Another exciting trailer for Beyond Good & Evil 2, it looks like such a fascinating world to explore, it's up there with Cyberpunk in my most-anticipated list.
No Splinter Cell though, I kept hoping until the very end. Very strange that it's the only title from the Walmart leak to have no presence, wonder what happened there.
Skull & Bones seemed to have sound issues, on our side there was no voiceover during the CG trailer which definitely ruined it, it's much cooler with the narrator :(
I was certain the Donkey Kong DLC was going to be shadow-dropped so a bit disappointed there, but not long to wait. It seriously looks like a whole new campaign, they went all out on that one.
If I had PS VR I would be all over Transference!
I think the conference felt like it lacked a heavy-hitting surprise simply because AC Odyssey was meant to be the main event and got ruined by that leak, it would have been more impactful otherwise.
