Kyle & David take a look at what will probably be the sleeper hit of 2013, Rayman Legends. Watch as we smack each other around in Fiesta de los Muertos, jam out on Castle Rock, and shoot giant birds in Hi-Ho Moskito!

Michel Ancel, the celebrated creator of Rayman®, Beyond Good & Evil®, and the Raving Rabbids®, returns to unleash his innovative creativity on this new entry into the Rayman® franchise. When Rayman, Globox, and the Teensies discover a mysterious tent filled with captivating paintings, they are suddenly transported to a series of mythical new worlds! Join them as they run, jump, and slap their way through each world to get home, save the day, and discover the secrets of the legendary paintings!

Join the Gang this week as we discuss what we’ve been playing. Kyle forces David to buy Fallout 3 (at gunpoint), we continue the Dark Souls/Demon’s Souls talk (INVISIBLE WALKWAYS!), keep erections at bay for Trackmania 2 (Hot Wheels for adults!), pronounce Volgarr the Viking (Biking), narrate The Stanley Parable (Blue Grass!), laugh at Crysis 2′s A.I. again (Cloak Engaged!), and discuss strategies in Call of Juarez Gunslinger (Shoot ‘em in the face!). Plus we determine if the Next-Gen Resolutiongate pandemic is just hyperbole and reminisce on Blockbuster’s heyday.

Join Kyle & David as they raise hell in the Darkroot Gardens, traverse the depths in the Tomb of the Giants, get into some PvP action, defeat the Gravelord Nito and of course, DIE!

dark_souls___steam_game_003_by_dbesing-d594vmn

Live through a million deaths and earn your legacy. Enter a dark world filled with despair and threaded by hope where your ability to creatively strategize, learn and overcome unpredictable and unique challenges determines your fate. Dark Souls will demand your absolute concentration, unflinchingly punish your mistakes, but reward your ability to learn from death. Each challenge is a mind game met with endless combinations to conquer unimaginable monsters and progress deeper into this bleak and forbidding environment filled with the un-dead.

The boys are back in town and the clown show is off hiatus as the gang regroups after a month long silence. Fear not! We kick things back into gear with another League of Legends hour including talk on new character, Jinx, and test Penrod on his knowledge of the lore of LOL. We also try to make sense of the convoluted Devil May Cry timeline, discuss the hyper-realistic horse controls in Shadows of the Colossus, and aggravating PvP matches in Demon’s Souls. And finally we spend the last half of the podcast gushing over 2011′s game of the year, Dark Souls. PREPARE TO DIE!

Due to some unforeseen audio issues there won’t be a new episode of The Backwards Compatible Podcast this week. But fear not! The two Kyle’s were able to record a Let’s Play for your viewing pleasure. So sit back and prepare to have your pants scared off by “Paranormal”

ZM4qT

Paranormal is a 3D fully dynamic haunting experience. The player takes the role of Mattel Clark, an artist who has a haunted house. Mattel decides to film the hauntings with his camera, which is the viewpoint of the game. Experience the horrors of a haunting that’s never the same twice.

Join the gang this week as we take a look at the DLC phenomenon that has manifested (and plagued) this generation of gaming. Access to this week’s topic discussion is also now available for the low low price of $14.99! So get those credit cards out and let’s do some microtransacting!

But first, Kyle, David, and Penrod set sail on the MOBA boat. We have a legit League of Legends hour, Penrod looks on disapprovingly as Kyle plays DOTA, and everyone is in disbelief that we never knew how amazing Awesomenauts is. Plus Aaron tries to survive in Metro 2033, and we all try to find the challenge in Crysis 2. Thanks for the money!

Join the gang this week as we discuss the dos and don’ts in the unwritten law of gaming etiquette. DON’T BE THAT GUY!

But first! We discuss renaming to The official Saints Row podcast, wreaking havoc in Castle Crashers, gaming with headphones, comedic timing, math algorithms in Game Dev Tycoon, playing classics with your children, and the borefest that is the Crysis series. Plus send us your comments/tweets/emails and have them read on the air!

Join the gang this week as we discuss the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise and try to decypher exactly what went wrong in it’s storied 22 year history.

But first Penrod celebrates his Birthday by romancing Keith David in Saints Row IV, David spends time in League of Legends only to be berated and yelled at, Aaron has No Time To Explain because he’s been in a coma for two weeks, and Kyle has buyers remorse……and forgets to turn his mic up. Sorry for the inconsistent audio in the first half!

Apologies all around.

Join Kyle, David, Aaron, & Penrod this week as we discuss cheating in games and the ethical questions that follow.

But first we gab about Far Cry 3, kicking butt in Tiny & Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers, the art of being a whaler in Dishonored’s DLC, the differences between Civ Rev and Civ V, how to hide in plain sight in Hitman: Absolution, and how AudioSurf is totally not like Guitar Hero…….mostly. Plus, are steriods bad? Yes, Jimmy, yes they are.

Join Kyle, David, and Penrod this week as we discuss the best ways to keep classic games alive whether it be HD collections, reboots, Virtual Console releases, emulation, etc.

But first we talk Warcraft 2 and it’s awesomeness, how crazy tough The Binding of Isaac can be, spoil Saints Row The Third again, the delicate nature of Worms Revolution, the awesome anti-pirating techniques of Game Dev Tycoon and other games, and Kyle longs for a racing game that could ever top Project Gotham Racing 4. Oh! And there’s some League of Legends talk too, but you already knew that didn’t you?
