Hi All!  I am very sorry to bring you the news that the Live 100th Episode of The Axe Factor has been postponed.  

No, this is not some lame attempt by Brent and I to make a statement about last minute game delays (although perhaps we could turn it in to that).  It is far less interesting, actually.  The truth is that I, Lorin, am sick (hold the comments).  I was hoping I would be well enough by Saturday to do the show but, alas, I am not.

As we want the 100th Episode to be as powerful and awesome as you guys are, and deserve, we decided it would be better not to half-ass it, but do wait a week so we could go full-awesome!!!

So there will be no Axe Factor this week.  But the LIVE 100th EPISODE AXESTRAVAGANZA of The Axe Factor will occur at the same time as previously scheduled, only next Saturday, January 12th.  That is 2-4pm EST (UTC/GMT-5).

We really hope this doesn't cause anyone too much inconvenience for anyone and reiterate that we are only doing it because you deserve the best (that's what she said)!

Thanks again and ready your weapons for the most awesome show ever on Jan 12th!  

Cry Havoc!

But I quit my job to listen tomorrow!

Does this mean we get The Axe Factor 99 7/8 in the interim?

Comment by Lavitz on January 4, 2013 at 3:41pm

Next week I'll be out of town and unable to listen to the show. :-/  Oh well, I'll listen to the recording.

I'm also fighting a cold (this holiday season kicked my ass...) so I completely understand. Get well soon, Lorin!

@Uncle Dude - just don't look for a new one until after next week and you should be good :)  And sadly no, there will be no interim show.

@Lavitz - Sorry you will miss the show.  Thanks for the well wishes though!

@Lorin - Through my tears, I missed the part about you being sick. Hope you feel better soon, brudda.

What a shame, but not to worry the show will go on in just a weeks time (assuming Brent isn't sick next!) touch wood... :)

Will there be any changes to the topics for the new episode date?

The Axe Factor 181: A Fat Guy Named No Man's Sky

Rubber bullets cannot save you from The Axe Factor! This week, we lose our minds over the latest media from Batman: Arkham Knight, discuss one listener's suggestion that we renounce pre-orders to combat broken games, and go hands-on with Far Cry 4, GTA V, and more!

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…
