The Fall gaming season is upon us. This month we've already seen the release of Dead Rising 2, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, and Halo: Reach; and there's plenty more heavy-hitter titles slated for release up through the holiday season.
EGS is here to help keep a controller in your hand until that big name title you've had on pre-order for the past 6 months hit stores.
DeathSpank is a heroic hero of the downtrodden who dispenses social justice like most heroes: with violence. DeathSpank's power is derived from a magical purple thong he wears (I'm not kidding). And, it's up DeathSpank to use the power of his mighty undergarment, and a large variety pointy and smashy weaponry, to help free a group of orphans from the evil Lord Von Prong.
DeathSpank plays a lot like your typical dungeon-crawler (think Diablo and, to some extent, X-Men Legends/Marvel Ultimate Alliance). DeathSpank roams a huge, cartoonishly rounded, open world, where he cleaves, bashes, skewers, burns, freezes, poisons, and electrifies any evil-doers in his path and collects mountains of sweet loot along the way.
Did I mention he collects loot, because he sure does collect a ton of loot.
If you enjoy stabbing first and never asking questions, stockpiling comically named loot, absurd and hilarious writing, and have $15 to spare; then DeathSpank is a game for you.
There's even a sequel dropping next week, so you won't even have to wait to continue the thong-related story!
