    Here’s who you’ll meet in ‘The Baconing’

    The latest chapter in the DeathSpank saga (is it a saga now? What’s the technical number of games we’d have to have for a saga?) seems to be especially tasty. At least, that’s what you’d expect with a name like The Baconing. In this trailer, you’ll meet the full cast of main characters. Take a look…some of them are kind of creepy. Follow

    Review: DeathSpank – Thongs of Virtue

    It’s no secret that Rachel and I love DeathSpank. Shortly after discovering that we were going to be hanging out with Hothead Games at PAX 2010, we were overcome with giddiness. It would be a shame to have one of us review the game and not the other, so we decided to deliver this as a joint review in two parts. It’s the Rachel and Amanda show!

They made an amazing game, are releasing a second game within mere months of the first installment (9/21 for PSN and 9/22 for XBL!), and top it all off with being super nice and friendly. GamingAngel Manda and I got to steal some of their time at PAX to ask them about this non-DLC. The Good News: Playtime will clock in at “about 50% longer than the first game”. For all you math-phobes, that’s around 15 hours worth of gameplay. That teaser of an ending to DeathSpank was kind of weird, wasn’t it? For Thongs of Virtue: “You’ve been captured as a prisoner of war; you need to fight your way out of there. As soon as you break out of the POW camp you’re exactly back where the first game ends”. More of that ambiguous redhead. Sparkles
