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)

The legend of The Axe Factor returns! Yay!

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...

The Axe Lords have not forsaken us! All of those calves I sacrificed must have worked!

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!

.......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.......

What We’re Watching:…

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…

Winter is coming and so is the Game of Thrones game!
