Backloggers Anonymous Enslaved Part 1

Ninja Theory sure has a thing for redheads don't they?

We're digging into another game from our backlog:  Ninja Theory's Enslaved. We start by getting Julian's take on backlogged games from 2012, then we talk about what kind of a game Enslaved is.

Rather than bog you down with what we discuss in the podcast (which you're gonna listen to anyway right? right?) I figured I'd show you some of the stuff we talked about on the podcast. So here's a video of Super Monkey Daibouken:

Here are the bonus bosses from Mega Man: The Wily Wars along with the characters they parallel in the Chinese epic:

Buster Rod. G (Sun Wukong, the monkey king)


Mega Water. S (Sha Wujing, the water buffalo)


Hyper Storm. H (Zhu Bajie, the pig guy)


While I'm at it, here's Infernape, the pokemon JD brought up in the 'cast:

Also, there's this, just for fun:

Great episode guys! Glad to hear that at least a few people are considering playing Kingdoms of Amular, despite the crappy name it’s certainly worth a look. Julian had it right, it really controls amazingly well for an action RPG, and it’s the game I’ve always wanted Fable to be honestly.

Also it was really interesting to hear the roots of this Enslaved. Seeing the game and concept art I could see the connection between Monkey and Goku, but I honestly didn’t know both were inspired by Journey to the West. I’ve never read that book, but hearing how much its influenced both to these things makes me interested to read it.

Anyways yeah I always love the first episode of Backloggers for that information. It makes me realize that I need to look more into the roots of games, because there are a lot of interesting connections that can be found.

Awesome episode, great information, keep up the great work!
