The Axe Factor Poll!

Do YOU agree that buying 'Sixth Day Edition' games will help protect gamers?
Yes, if they see we're waiting it will change their behavior 0%
No, buying the game a week later is still buying the game. If they get our money, they'll keep screwing us0%
I think it can help with broken games and questionable pre-release reviews but not the larger industry problems we face0%

I would love to change my username to DaySixEdition games.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.

 

The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…
