News: Development of Darksiders 2′s huge world was such an undertaking that its developer Vigil had to ask ailing publisher THQ for two more months to finish it.
I'm very much looking forward to this game now. I fell in love with the first one, and this one looks equally awesome. This should fill the void left from the absence of a new Zelda game.
One of my first favourite games this gen, i'm very hyped for Darksiders 2
Awesome memories! This has to be one of the best hack n' slash games I've played this gen. I sold my PS3 copy after beating the game but thank god I have a Steam copy. I'm gonna download/install the game and play through it again because the fun is well worth it! I say let them take their time to work on Darksiders II and polish it, rather than rush it out with half the game full of bugs. I'm willing to wait, but one thing is definitely clear: It's time to replay the first one!
They have my respect for delaying the game, first one was awesome and this one deserves to be as well.
Realy hope they sell well with this one...
Darksiders is very underrated.
Yep, darksiders blind sided me. Great game. Can't wait for this
I have yet to play darksiders, but downloaded it last night since I got it from ps plus. Should be fun.
It's a really good game :D
I can promise you that you won't be disappointed.
I also got this through PS+ but haven't played it yet. Going for Stranger's Wrath first. But very glad about that since its one of those games I've always wanted to pick up, but never got round to. PS+ makes my life a whole lot easier :)
See. Vigil knows how to make a brilliant game. This is only their second game, but I feel like I know them so well. I have the utter most respect for them. Cannot wait for DSII. I loved the first one and was definitely worth it's £40 price due to how long the game was. The first game deserved more credit than it got. Hope the sequel does better in sales. I need to replay it again (I completed it on 360 and I own it on PS3/PC too. Haha)
Come on August! Ooh rah!
I played the first DarkSiders and only got about three hours in. Does it get any better? It was a straight-up God of War clone. Everyone tells me it becomes more like Zelda after that, but it just got really boring... Is there any reason for me to finish the game?
If you think it is a GOW clone then you must have never heard of Dante's Inferno. Even though DI still had some of the best atmosphere out of many games this generation. The story was well told.
I hope it is not like God of War and is more like Zelda. I watched the Sony Press Con. and GoW was my least favorite of all the games shown- this includes "Book of Fire". It just dripped too much blatant Machismo. So much machismo that I did not know if it was for me or for "lively" teenaged girls.
I loved the ending of Darksiders. One of the most baadass ever. My only problem was that I beat the game smashing square the whole time. There was absolutely no depth to the fighting system no matter how many things I unlocked. That and the world felt dead. I guess that's because the Apocalypse had just happened though, huh.
Never knew it was this good, I'm getting a gamepad for my pc soon so I'll have to pick it up on steam. I've heard the mouse/kb controls for DS1 are pretty bad so gamepad it is.
