Backloggers Anonymous Darksiders Part 1

Come join the dark side

Welcome to our little group. This time on Backloggers, I'm joined by Jesse and JD as we discuss Darksiders, and it's publisher THQ.

Before that though, JD tells us about his journey through Journey. We then discuss the videos he recorded and narrated for PIxlbit which I would encourage anyone who can't experience the game for themselves to check out. We then move on to the topic at hand.

Like Silicon Knights, the developers of Too Human, THQ has been in the news recently as well, and for all the wrong reasons to boot. Jesse has been watching this from the sidelines, and and explains what's going on in the confusing world of bankruptcy, asset acquisition, and sale of intellectual property. (Jesse's article, entitled THQ is not having a fire sale, can be found here.) We also speculate a little on what may become of THQ in the future. 

Finally, we talk about the game itself. What do we expect from it, what kind of game it is, stuff like that.

And these bad boys are darkSLIDERS. Get it?

Remember, the whole point of all this is for our listeners to give us feedback. We'd love to use some of your comments in our next episode, so tell us your thoughts in the comments.  For you PS+ members out there, apparently you can get the original Darsiders for free this week, so now even if this game wasn't in your backlog, you have no excuse not to play along with us!

Nerds Without Pants Special: Music and Lyrics

Welcome back! We’re still on hiatus, but it’s time for our annual music special, and we have a jam-packed edition this year. We’ve gone back to our older format of getting together and talking about our music selections and what they mean to us. In traditional Nerds Without Pants fashion we overshare, things get heavy, and then there’s probably a joke about boobs or something. You know how it goes by now.
