Backloggers Anonymous System Shock 2 Part 2

Yep, it's cursed...

So you may be wondering why it's been two months since you last heard from us, and I'd be happy to tell you, but first, go ahead and play this YouTube video. Trust me.

So, remember on the last episode when I discussed the shock curse? Well, over the course of playing this game we all had a ton of technical and scheduling difficulties which we discuss briefly in the show. Unfortunatly, one became apparent only after I recorded this episode; My headset broke while we were recording.

What this means for you guys, and I'm horribly sorry about this, is that I've had to edit this episode rather heavily. There's gonna be some popping and cutting in and out from my microphone, and sometimes a conversation may sound kind of awkward due to having to edit out a portion of it, but hopefully you guys still enjoy it, and hopefully I won't have to do another Shock game for a while.

Oh, something else I forgot, my first Xbox 360 went red ring on me while playing Bioshock for the first time, so yeah, I'm probably going to avoid these games in the future. They're starting to cost me a small fortune. At least it gave me an excuse to listen to this Stevie Wonder song again though. That's some seriously sweet bass.

So our next show will be our listener's choice episode covering Mirrors Edge! Be looking for that in a couple of weeks or so, and as always, feel free to post some questions or suggestions in the comments below.

Alright! I've been sitting on my copy of Mirror's Edge for months now, wondering when to start it lol

Now's the time! (oh crap, I should probably start replaying that, huh?)

It does seem as though Irrational seems to have learned something from the previous game in the series, but something else suffers as a result.  I thought that the gunplay was awful in Bioshock, but the plasimids were the best way to do battle.  In Infinite I though that the gunplay was infinitely better, but the vigors were a little lackluster.

I guess I should try and start to play system shock 2 again...  Stupid "classics."

Mega Man 3 Review Rewind

For years, there has been a heated debate among fans of the Mega Man series regarding which one is the best of the original hexalogy. After the facts have been laid out and philosophical life lessons thoroughly dissected, the debate usually boils down to Mega Man 2 vs. Mega Man 3. Which is the greater of the two? Well, no matter which side you’re on, we can all agree on the thing- the cover art for Mega Man 3 finally got it right! No more awkward stances or that pistol-for-an-arm-cannon nonsense. Of course, he didn’t look as good as on the Famicom cover, but that’s another argument.
