Category: Deathspank: The Baconing
Now is the time to finish our Deathspank trilogy games review blitz! If you missed the earlier episodes, do not hesitate to check my review of Deathspank 1: Orphans of Justice here, and Deathspank 2: Thongs of Virtue here.
This third game in the Deathspank franchise was made after Ron Gilbert had left HotHead Games, and it was apparent in this game that the creative head had changed.
If you are curious, an earlier review of The Baconing was done by pedrolabate a few years ago. My review is a second take on this game and wraps our look back on the trilogy.
Deathspank: The Baconing isn’t your average PSN Title. Its graphics far exceeded my expectations, and some of the features are far from the standard on titles like this. The game is first and foremost a hack and slash, but the most interesting aspect of the game is the over-the-top humor. With that said, my experience with the game had mixed results. Even though it certainly offered me good entertainment, a game breaking glitch (that happened on the 4th “chapter”) prevented me from finishing it, so I took it to heart and gathered enough information to finish writing this.
Deathspank and Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue where both great games, and this one promises to be better!! Check out this release trailer and then go buy a PSN card here and play The Baconing tonight!!!
Here is the newest trailer for the third game in my all time favorite PSN franchise, DeathSpank.
“The Baconing is an action RPG which stars everyoneâ€™s favorite Vanquisher of Evil, DeathSpank. The story revolves around DeathSpank wearing all six Thongs of Virtue which unfortunately summons an evil version of himself in the AntiSpank. Now our hero must seek out the Fires of Bacon and burn five of the Thongs, which will allow him to weaken and defeat the evil giant, bringing peace back to Spanktopia.”
