Episode 74 - Darksiders Genesis

30Jun

In this month's episode of the Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) are joined by Airship Syndicate writer and longtime friend of the Ghost, Frank Barbiere to discuss the fourth installment of the Darksider's series, Darksiders Genesis. Frank gives us an exciting, "inside baseball" look at the game and its development within the studios of Airship Syndicate. As a special treat, Frank also joins the boys in another special segment of the Concertcast in which all three divulge their Top 5 Albums of 2007 and of course a errrrr.....few honorable mentions..... How did the guys feel about this platforming, Diablo-style dungeon crawler? What was their favorite song from 2007? And which one of them has never heard Rihannah's "Umbrella?".......Seriously! WTF??
