Games in education was mentioned in the round up and was also a topic on the axe factor a few months ago, so I am not going to get into it here other than to say that there is huge potential for games and game like tools to be used in all aspects of education.

I was a developer for military simulators a few years ago and suffice to say there is a huge market for simulated training of soldiring skills. It is way cheaper to train procedures on simulators then using live equipment, especially troubleshooting procedures and basic scenarios.

These things are not games per se and are not commercial products, but there are big markets outside games as entertainment in the business sphere.

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…

The Axe Factor 180: A Guy Who Knows That We Know

Grapple-parachute-traversal cannot save you from The Axe Factor! This week, we're checking in on Tales From the Borderlands, digging on some Just Cause 3 and pondering our experiences as a customer of the game industry.

- 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!

Last month the PR Rep for Tell Tale games was tweeted to ask about the new Game of Thrones game. This is what she responded with.

PR Reps love giving us only the tip.

Soon after that we got a teaser image.…
