I actually haven't paid this series much attention. My friend, the author of this article, brought it to my attention and now I want to give it a try. Are there any fans of this series?

Me! :)

A highly enjoyable series with a unique and quirky sense of humour

I played and enjoyed the first one, 100% completion on it... but the second one came out far too soon after it, so I was burned out on it and now the third one is out and I really have very little desire to go back to the second one... which is a shame, I think their only mistake was the release date of the second game, a few months wait would have given me a bigger incentive to jump back in.

I think I might space them out since I'll be playing them so late after release. I kind of like playing a game after the hype is over. It makes it so I don't feel like I have rush I guess. I'm not a 100% type guy anymore so I'll just play it to completion. Thanks for the feedback!

I tried all of these games before, but I could never get into them. There is just something about the art style, the shading, menus / text.. I just could not play it because I found it too hard to look at. This is weird because I have played over 5000 games, probably more, in my life, and I have never had this problem before.. It looks like a fun game too, and there is 3 of them. I just wish I could be able to enjoy them.

Anyone else find this about the art style?

The art style, sense of humor and awesome design is what got me hooked. I played the first one and second one to death. Now the baconing bothers me for a couple of reasons.

1. The field of view changed so you can see more of the background than before. Less sense of picture popup book.

2. The world doesn't animate like it did before. If you have the previous versions pop them up walk around and you will notice something is missing on the baconing.

3. The baconing is more linear than the previous 2 versions and the quests where smaller in size.

[SPOILER ALERT DON'T READ]
4. The whole to be continued message at the end and no real ending really ticked me off.

I'm a huge DeathSpank fan but The Baconing was the worst version yet.

to #4 dude its obviously a reference to back to the future its meant to be a nice joke, not some epic ending. Its deathspank its not supposed to make you feel accomplished and mighty its meant to make you chuckle. i agree the first two were better but its nice to see more deathspank in the future. my thong tightens in anticipation.

ha if that is what they meant the WHOOOOSH it went right over my head as I got angry and silly about it.

Now I have to replay it =D

Thx for the clarification
