Axehead Assembly 8 : A Look "Back" At The Current Generation Of Consoles

Axeheads assemble!

Finally we crawl out of the dark corners of EBA and enter an official state. We got approved now and will post every further Episode with a Blog - Post. This will open many great options in the future for us as a Community Podcast. Because we will have a seperate comment section for every iteration now in which YOU can easy participate and discuss with us!

Anyhow, in this Episode we do a retrospective on the current gen and everything that came with it. We talk about motion controls, new options in RPG's and of course about our favorite games. Also we take the Blog-Posts of Amrit and DK as basis to talk about the the Top Games 2013 this far.

Congratulations!

Just a minor thing, but could you put a sequential number in the Blog post? Like "Axehead Assembly 8: A look back at the current generation" It's awesome that you have the number in the file on mediafire! It helps a lot if I miss an episode :)

A few ideas for future episodes since you are asking :)

-You could pick a game genre and talk just about that. Everyones favourite games ever in that genre, how it's changed over the years, where you would like to see it go etc etc. 

-Games you are most looking  forward too in the second half of the year. There was a discussion here on eba, cant remember who to credit for it :)

-Are there too many violent games? I'm not talking about games being too violent. But just too many games being 1st/3rd person shooters. I personally want more trippleA games like Portal/Journey. Also you could discuss 3rd person adventure games getting progressively more violent (thinking about the uncharted series and the last tomb raider, also the mass effect series). Strong writing and puzzles giving way to more gunplay. I somehow thing the transition from 2d to 3d had something to do with it :)

Sorry for the long post...

@Chuchu: Too bad you missed the episode since Amrit wasn't able to join us. Maybe next time ;)

Thanks for the feedback Doc, You do bring up some really good topics that we could discuss on the show, specially now that we're in the middle of a dry gaming summer.. Hopefully you'll be able to join us soon, cus I know we would all like that.

Thanks for the feedback Docwoor! I really like you suggestions and i already included you in my idea document! And don't be sorry about the length of your post, the longer the better! Keep it up mate!
