Axehead Assembly #26: Sigmund's rent boy shocker

Prepare to deck the halls with boughs of holly because it's time for the Axehead Assembly's Christmas special!

On this week's festive show, the Axehead team share their most special Christmas gaming memories. After that, we trawl the bargain bins and dredge up the last generation's 'hidden gems'. It's a perfect buying guide if you have a few extra pennies this holiday season. Expect some detailed musings over the likes of X-Men: Wolverine Origins, Valkiria Chronicles, Warhammer 40'000: Space Marine, Darksiders, Shadows of the Damned, Braid, Yakuza 4, Bionic Commando and many more.

Add into that some disagreements over the merits of both Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and Sonic Generations plus Chuchu's Christmas giveaway and a legendary cameo from Sigmund Rumpf and you have a rent boy buying, electrical cord strangling, mechanical ghost wife wanking podcast on you hands!

All that a more can be enjoyed right here:

Enjoyed the show guys. This is the second podcast this week I've heard Bionic Commando mentioned for it's swinging mechanic. I might just have to try it out for myself.

Chuchu, I believe your favorite game of all time is Journey.

As for my favorite Christmas gaming memory, it would have to be Christmas of '96 when we got an N64 and Super Mario 64. All of Christmas vacation went into that game, and nearly every one of our friends came over at some point during break and played it for hours. Booting up a new console for the first time has never matched that experience since.

Congratulations, Pernicious Panda! You says the game, you wins the prize. A package full of Japanese bits 'n bobs will be winging it's way to you shorty.

If it's wrong, why does it feel so right?

Leigh Alexander Gets Fisked

So Leigh Alexander at Gamasutra, Luke Plunkett at Kotaku and Dan Golding (who has written for many places), have written articles on the same day, on the same subject. That's an interesting coincidence. It is also interesting that Chris Plante over at Polygon also had a very similar article, covering the same issues, on the same day though it was written more as a summary of the past week. Now there are time zones to consider but these were all published within 24…

Thursday Throwdown: Let's talk Twitch and life just before marriage...

White America, on the cusp of thirty, something happens...

Is there a reason you're buying the latest Susan Wiggs novel? Well yeah, your nana's ninety-third birthday was this past Tuesday, but you've been…

How many hours of gaming do I have left?

So I thought it would be a good idea to do the math on how many hours of spare time I have left before I throw in the towel for good. With a sizable backlog, psplus throwing close to half a dozen games at me each month, new games coming out, two kids, some physical activity (rock climbing) and trying to get to a competent level of playing guitar, bass, piano and drums, its time for a reality check. Unsurprisingly, the math is not in my favor. 

In the last few years, I have not had…

This isn't a thread about PC being better than consoles. It is already a fact, just as a higher frame rate is better than a so called filmic 24 or 30 fps experience. But enough of that, there is…Continue
