This is Alexander Arts and I am posting on your 'comment wall.' OH SNAP!

Thanks.

I could put up a guide on how I did it, but maybe you want to work out a bit of css-code to be used on your side of things, so users only need to copy-paste some HTML and put their names in.

Let me know, I don't mind preparing the code for you. Busy in web-development lately anyways. Punishing myself with ASP.net atm, so a bit of html/css is very welcome and easy by comparison :P

Thanks for the add Brent! I'm a long time listener of the show and just recently created at profile on the new site. The last axefactor enticed me to get more active with the community here so congrats! You and Lorin talked me into it haha

PLEASE don't let Lorin trick you into overpaying for games. Borderlands 2 is $36 at GreenmanGaming, among other deals here at my favorite site!!

I like the work so far on the new site. Keep up the good work and I know you all will be dedicated to the cause.

I joked with Lorin that if he could convince you to play Borderlands, he might be able to get you play Battlefield too lol. And being left behind by your friends in a game, I know that feel brother :,(

You should take the Pop filter off your Mic. I think it would add a cool Vader effect to the show. Just really mucusy

Thanks Brent.  Yeah, I'm just trying to make my page look as awesome as possible.  As you can tell, it's a Red Dead Redemption theme.  Still ironing out the details.

If you had doubts about Resident Evil 6, may I point out that Jake's campaign has a mini-boss with a chainsaw that:
- is powered by his heart
- has his ribs as an arm guard
- has his spine restructured to form the CHAIN.

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%

Axefactor 180. We Get What We Deserve

I would love to change my username to DaySixEdition games.

Greetings fellow Axeheads.  I am once again compelled to write my thoughts in the same theme I wrote every other time in relation to the AxeFactor #180.  Our glorious Axelords Brent and Lorin again ponder as to why it is that our industry treats us like crap.  There is even a pole again for us to express what we feel about the situation.

The pole is missing the ''The industry treats us as we deserve.''   Which is what…

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- 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…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

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…
