Axehead Assembly #27: Sliding down Luigi's pole

Prepare to roll yourself in flour and jump into the fray because the Axehead Assembly has returned to batter your ears!

On this episode we talk in depth about the games we played in the winter break, take a look at Raminder Singh's EBA community game of the year forum thread and talk about the rise of digital content, micro transactions and DLC in the previous generation.

Amidst this episode's debris you'll discover some noodling over The Last of Us, Civilization V, Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles, Gravity Rush, Super Mario 3D World, Disney Universe, Infamous Second Son, Minecraft & Battlefield 4. Add into that a dash of Alien Isolation and you have a deathstar avoiding, snuff movie making, neck-tie monkey punching podcast on your hands!

All that and a lot more can be enjoyed right here:

Thank you, guys. I think the whole AA team are feeling very happy indeed. Ironically, though, I think we were all suffering from a bit of ring rust this week after coming back from a month off. I'm sure we'll be fighting fit by next episode, though.

I've got to admit that this was my first time listening to your podcast (with it being featured and all), but you guys seem to be doing a really great job.

That's some smart commentary right there and quite entertaining, I might add. Keep up the great work!

What We’re Watching:…

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…

Winter is coming and so is the Game of Thrones game!
