On this episode of Backlog Busting Project, Wes Harrington and Randy Isbelle have moved on from discussing Metal Gear. Now, they turn their attention to some more distinct fare.
Randy and Wes both have a discussion on the ups and downs of the Dontnod developed 2013 action adventure game Remember Me.
Randy focuses his attention on the 2014 multiplatform RPG that brought new meaning to licensed games, in South Park: The Stick of Truth. Does the game really feel like an episode of the series? How’s the story and combat? Does he end up enjoying the game?
Wes talks Fallout 2, the second PC exclusive game in the series. How much of this Fallout game can be seen in the later games? Does it still hold up today? Some interesting takes for sure.
