Axehead Assembly #30: Cats! Cats! Cats!

Prepare to swap out the cheese on that giant mousetrap with some catnip because the Axehead Assembly is marking in your territory again!

On this week's 'All About the Axe' we pull a double header and talk about Miguel Ramos's EBA community game of the Generation discussion AND CornRpeople2's 10 Things Spelunky can teach you about life blog.

After that in the 'The Vanguard', we talk about multiplayer games. We debate whether local multiplayer is actually dead and go on to discuss our favorite online and offline MP experiences of the last generation (and of all time).

Along this rocky road, you'll hear about God of War: AscensionUnreal Tournament 2Timesplitters 3, Perfect Dark and Call of Duty: World at War. Then add in a dash of one man's obsessive love affair with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and you have a Sonic strangling, Sigmund sucking, Donkey Kong fisting podcast on your hands!

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

My favorite local 'multiplayer' games were actually single player games a lot of the time. For example playing FTL, my girlfriend controlled the game while we gave her advice and voted on what decisions to make, then when we eventually died I would take over the controls.

Dungeon crawlers like Dungeon Master and Legend of Grimrock are a ton of fun to play with friends around. Name your team after your friends and solve puzzles together. Let one friend write down the spells or clues on paper and make maps.

Heavy Rain was a lot of fun to watch a friend play and discuss the decisions. Horror games can be a lot of fun to play with friends around too. One of my friends came over every day to watch me play through Deadspace.

Of course local multi-player games like Little Big Planet, or Civilization 5 have been a ton of fun for us too. My girlfriend, father, and I also have had a ton of great memories playing Minecraft online - which brought us together because I live on the opposite side of the world from him.

So I would say single-player, local multi-player, and online multi-player are all a ton of fun with friends and I wouldn't want to go without any one of them.

It would be awesome, if the axelords would put this podcast on a more prominent spot on the webpage, so that there is more discussion ongoing. Awesome episode btw :).

will the crowdfunding bubble burst

I am still a big user of crowdfunding sites i have donated to a fair few games so far. From skull girls and grim dawn up to the more recent beasts fury.

Who gets gaming shame....?

Gaming Shame :  

1) The shame a person feels when they just screwed up and their team has died and lost the match because of it.

2) The shame a person feels when they play a video game, but feel that they should be doing something that would be more productive.

I dont know about you guys, but I run into this more often than not, and its why I dont game as much as I used to.
