Lorin, you're not alone. I also had to wash my boxers by the time i was done listening to the show, it's just too good!

Comment by Christer Lindqvist on February 12, 2013 at 8:05am

Thank you for another great show guys!

I been playing Some Colonial Marines since the launch this midnight

I must admit.....I do agree with all the reviews I´ve seen today. (all have been very poor)Corridor, shoot a bit. Another corridor shoot a bit. Poor animations(faces mostly)

And tons of more things.

Isen´t it Gearbox that have made this? Considering they made Borderland games, that I love to bits, I expected more

Am sure some will like/love it. But I personally am very disappointed.

Anyway. Sorry for being a negative nacy guys:)

Take care!

I'll forgive you for forgetting my name this time (in regards to the claptrap machinima) Lorin... This time =P

Anywho, great show guys. I never backed Wasteland 2, but really wishing that I had now. The gameplay looks fantastic and right up my ally as I love that old school Baulder's Gate style.
Been very tempted to play Mutant Mudds too... Now even more hearing Brent talk about it again XD

Comment by Resident Emo on February 12, 2013 at 9:45am

I have to admit I am quite saddened this episode wasn't called "12 inches of space between them", talking about Brent describing branching choice trees. Then again, Lorin didn't call him on that either :P

Don't usually do this, but I'm going to paste a user review of Aliens: Colonial Marines from Metacritic that made me almost piss myself;

"Fantastic game! Will play daily. Its refreshing to see other publishers follow THQ's successful business model of great quality games for fans. Cutting out a big part of the single player to sell as DLC will be well received and can't wait to buy that too."

LMFAO!

Awesome show guys, thanks for choosing the video i sent for discussion. I sent this video because i am going to school right now to become a game designer and it just made me view games so differently and i thought it was just awesome.

I'm getting http://www.podbean.com/404.htm on the download link, anyone else?

Comment by Mincho Hristov Ivanov on February 12, 2013 at 12:05pm

I wish someone makes a co-op S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl instead of all those "Z" games... id rather explore the zone with my buddies as stalkers rather than shooting generic zombies...

The Wasteland 2 video was nice :D more power to them...

Btw i have a suggestion about the "What We’re Playing" section... try to play one old game for evry show... a game in the same gerne as the one you are currently playing but a few years back :D i can tell you i tried that with Legend of Grimrock and Wizardry 8 and it rly puts things in perspective...surprising...thow sometimes the results are wiered...playing Demon Souls and Severance side by side was ..wow..

I am also getting an error
Comment by milkntruffle on February 12, 2013 at 1:41pm

I have a related question, Tralamazza and Axel...for the past few episodes, regardless of where I try to download TAF (iTunes, off the download link above), it downloads RIDIC slow compared to other files of about the same file size (~40 MB or so). 

Why might that be? Generally, I'm downloading the show a few hours after it's gone up, so maybe the server is busy with downloads from others? Or some slowness intrinsic to the server? I don't really know what I'm talking about but I like saying "server" :).

Love the show, grateful to Brent and Lorin for bringing me news and silent chuckles on a weekly basis :DD

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

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…
