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.

The Nintendo Switch Chicago Preview Event

On Friday, February 17th, I had the opportunity to travel to Chicago and check out Nintendo’s upcoming new system—The Switch, as well as fifteen different titles releasing within the Switch’s first year. As a longtime fan of video games, I’d read about events like E3 and press preview events and dream about going to one of these one day. Since I’m not involved in games journalism and live in the Midwest, I never imagined I’d have a chance to attend a preview event. The only time I went to something of this level was Nintendo’s E3 Best Buy event in 2013, where I spent three hours in line so I could play one Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze level. When Nintendo emailed me an invitation to preview the Switch, I immediately snagged two tickets. When I left for the event with my friend Marcus, I expected something similar to that Best Buy preview.
