๐ŸŽฎ Axiom Verge as part of the Metroid lineage

Axiom Verge has been released for PS4 and with it, Metroidvania is suddenly one of the most talked about genres. Still, it's not just praise that Axiom verge is harvesting. Having put in a delightful 10 hours so far, I kind of get where everybody is coming from and wrote that ...
