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?

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…
