At PAX East last weekend, Team Kotaku went and played Evolve, the upcoming co-op shooter that pits a group of four hunters against one vicious monster. Yesterday, we talked about it. Here's that conversation.

Driving through Ann Arbor, checked this place out for a quick eat and loved it. The staff were really friendly and helpful and they really did get the food to you quick. The shakes were very popular with our kids. Prices were also very good.

We got in free as it is part of the National American Reciprocal Museum, where we have a pass for our local one in Acton, MA. So with that in mind, this place was a great place to spend a couple of hours while we were driving through Columbus. It might not have been such great value if you had to pay full admission, but with kids, this place was fantastic, especially as under 5's get in free anyway. There is a great interactive kids section with a lot of activities for them to get involved with. The rest of the art collection, depends on your taste I suppose, but I didn't think it was to bad. Not a lot of older pieces but I hadn't really expected that from a small place. The other facilities such as the gift shop and rest rooms were also good too, as well as a lot of free parking.

Great little free museum this. Very clean and easy to get around, with great bathrooms if you've got little kids in tow. One thing of note, the lift at the front is a little tricky to get going and this place does shut promptly, with the lifts being switched off, so we had a little trouble finding our way out. There is plenty of on street parking around the museum, with metered parking at $1.50 a hour, which is pretty good. Nice collection of artifacts with a lot of info, well displayed.

Did a long road trip and this was one of the worst places we stayed. When making the booking the impression was made that breakfast was included, what we got was vouchers for the kids to eat free from a very limited and poor menu if we ate a full breakfast. The swimming pool, while a decent size was not very heated. You also had to get towels from the front desk with a $10 deposit per towel and they didn't really want to give full size towels to the kids. They were also so thread bare that they might as well not have bothered. Towels also had to be returned to the front desk. Towels in the room were also pretty ruff, you could strip paint off a wall with those things. Top it off, the beds were so uncomfortable, it felt like you were lying down on a over stuff sausage. Surly staff probably didn't help matters, especially in the bar when they were only interested in serving the locals. Also wanted to add, we had two wake up calls at 4:45am and 4:55am, that we did not set up. When mentioned to the front desk at check out, we were just told that it was "one of those things, sometimes they aren't cleared from the system from previous stays". Not much of an apology that, neither a very good explanation of it happening twice.

I'll get the one complaint out first. This museum is a member of the reciprocal program, but does not take part in the 50% discount that you get from other institutions in the program, which is a little annoying. They do give you a 10% AAA members discount however. Saying that. The place is fantastic, multilevel of different exhibits that are great for a whole range of ages. The water area was a particular favourite for our kids, but there was so much to see and do, it really could consume the whole day. There is ample parking that is free and the food court has a great selection of offerings with reasonable prices. Also plenty of bathroom facilities that are great for the kids.

A little further out in the burbs than we had anticipated, but it was situated in a quiet industrial park, nearby a small strip mall that has a Panera Bread, Qdoba and a few other places to eat. During our summer road trip from New England out to the Mid West and back, this place had the best beds and that's including the downtown Marriott in Chicago. Sleep number, with lovely pillows was a great experience. The pool wasn't to bad, could have done with being a little bit warmer, but it didn't seem over chlorinated compared to a few others we stayed at. The staff were all very lovely, especially the breakfast stuff. Breakfast was great too, free from the full service restaurant as well as a very comprehensive continental breakfast offering, including a great range of snack bars and fruits.

Currently getting worked on so couldn't comment on the building or all the facilities. The pathways are really nice walks though and mostly very kid friendly, but there really isn't very far too go with a stroller which is a shame. Some of the pathways weren't accessible because of the water or plant growth which is a shame but there is still plenty to see. The trails are also very well marked but the map at the front desk you can get is a big help, just a shame they don't give very detailed distance or time markers. Plenty of great wildlife too, turtles, ducks, swans, geese, Baltimore oriels and more. Lot of parking at this place too.
