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.

Its not realistic to think mainstream consumers will buy a device that only does one thing0%
I actually like all the entertainment options and hope they can be balanced with gaming0%
Keeping it simple is fine, but if everyone does that then no one stands out; console makers half to also stand apart0%

RE: Exclusive live scene from TLOU: One Night Live - Its time to grow up and stop acting entitled

Well, I was going to keep this short enough for a status but I wasn't able to manage it, so I decided to make a blog and boy did I run with it (I shouldn't be allowed near these things) So, here's my 10 cents worth:


I'm getting tired of hearing about 'internet rage' over game-related issues that really have nothing to do with what you deserve or what you are owed.


In this particular case, yet again fans of The Last Of Us are getting up in the grill of…
