Backloggers Anonymous Darksiders Part 2

Old Angelo's got something new for you!

Angst! Rage! Epic House Cleaning! It's all on this week's Backloggers Anonymous!

THQ is in the news yet again, and this time it seems like it's over for those guys. Jesse give us the lowdown, including who owns what properties after the auction, and we discuss this a bit before digging into the game proper.

We talk a little bit about the story, the combat, the soundtrack, and of course the dungeons. Believe it or not, as lacking as we found some of the story elements, we did find ourselves enjoying the characters a bit, and even finding some humor in how over-the-top War can be. Natrually, the star here is the gameplay, and it is solid, so if anybody out there was holding out, just know that after a slow start, the game does get fun once you get into that first dungeon.

Also, this is how I picture Jesse cleaning his house now:

Epic House Cleaning

We had some interesting things happen around this podcast, so make sure you stick around after the music for some outtakes, unless you hate fun or something.

I originally misread that as furry, which would have been WAY more interesting.

Splatoon Hands On Preview

Splatoon has been on my radar since its reveal. It’s a brand new IP from Nintendo – a vibrant, 3rd person competitive online shooter that emphasizes things other than getting kills, like turf control. Oh, and rather than shoot bullets or lasers, you shoot paint. And you can turn into a squid to swim around the battlefield.
