I think there needs to be some changes around here now that Brent's wife has had a child to tone down the excessive violence and profanity. Brent, Vikings are savage and ruthless, you should take on the persona of Pacifist Brent to give off an air of approachability and friendliness. Lorin, bombs are loud and can get people killed, I suggest changing your name to Lorin Flowergarden to come across less intimidating and more inviting to your younger and more easily impressionable viewer base. Also, Axes are big and scary, so I suggest we rename the show to the RattleFactor to ensure that the worst the big meanies can do to you is adorably bonk you on the head... also I think EpicBabyCry just writes itself!

Glad all is well, welcome back the two (three) of you! (I'm with Lorin btw on the Gold Club, sounds friggin awesome as a fan of the ol' golf myself. Also thank god someone finally played Brothers, though its unfortunate that is was a little dissonant of an experience due to how you consumed the game, I know that feeling cause I did the EXACT same thing with Gone Home and kinda ruined that game for myself)

Welcome Back!

The legend of The Axe Factor returns! Yay!

Comment by Setsuna on February 4, 2014 at 6:41am

Welcome back guys and many many congratulations 'daddy' :D

Just wanted to leave this food for thought about the 'saga' controversy:

http://www.howlongtobeat.com/search.php?t=games&s=saga

I'm pretty sure Hero's Saga Laevatein Tactics wasn't copying this bullshit candy crush that no one gives 2 shits about.

The word 'SAGA' can't be trademarked as it was already used plenty of times by several other games and becomes fair use of a word that can't be trademarked (imho).

Sorry, just had to rant...

Welcome back! The Axe Factor is home again! Don't forget for me the most anticipated game in a very long time, Dark Souls 2, coming out in March also!

Comment by Thomas Sorensen on February 4, 2014 at 7:48am
.......First off.... Congratulations Baby-Daddy.......and welcome back both of u.......

Ok how can something like saga be trademarked its one of those words like "chair, banana, wind, hey & what" that it makes no sense that a word like saga can be trademarked. Its absolutly ridiculous.......

.......Hmmm maby i should trademark my name.......

Hands on from San Diego Comic-Con 2014

It's a truly odd year at the SDCC game wise(hence the non-gaming pic that was more exciting in all honesty). It truly is a vanilla year for games as bizarre choices and just an average effort of marketing is on display. From the recycled demo of Bayonetta 2 from the previous year to the complete absence…

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. 

I think crowd funding has its place and thankfully i have not been burned as of yet but recently came across a kickstarter …
