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.

As a note - the remaining two horsemen are Fury and Strife... So it's a bunch of angry people - not a lot of variety there.

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

Nerds Without Pants Special: Leaving Las Vana'diel

Hey, all. Julian here with a short special to tide you over until our next big show. I'm joined by my best friend Shanna (who you may have heard in the special episode Love and the MMORPG) to talk about the last days of the Final Fantasy XI console servers. I've already written a piece about it which you can find here, but I still wanted to do some sort of special recording about this very important topic of mine.
