Nosgoth - Overview video

Vae Victis!

You won't hear too much Latin taunting in Nosgoth, the free-to-play multiplayer shooter/blood-eater based in the Legacy of Kain franchise's gothic world. In fact, there's not a lot of familiar ground to tread; it's a far more action-oriented, competitive affair than its predecessors. There's little to no soul reaving. You can't drink a person's blood from a city block away. Fortunately, Nosgoth incorporates some neat asymmetrical multiplayer ideas, making vamps look and feel powerful, and making humans taste delicious.

In this Overview, Justin and I play through a couple rounds of Nosgoth, figuring out how it stacks up against the golden days of our youth. Not just in comparison to the Legacy of Kain series, but also to Austin Powers, because this episode really got away from us.
