What Could Platinum Games Bring To Darksiders?

Garvaos from Plus XP writes "Last week publisher THQ sadly went into bankruptcy and as a result we saw auction of the publishers most loved franchises. Other game companies such as Ubisoft and SEGA now own the rights to games such as Company of Heroes 2, Metro: Last Light and South Park: The Stick of Truth. Unfortunately though not all of the franchises were sold , meaning that some of THQ’ games now are at risk of being shut down altogether. One of the franchises yet to find a buyer is the fantasy third person action game Darksiders.
As the Darksiders wasn’t picked up by anyone at the THQ auction, the future of the franchise was starting to look bleak. A day or so after the auction however, Platinum games reached out to THQ staff over Twitter stating that they would be interested in buying the Darksiders franchise ‘for cheap’. Could Platinum games be the saviour that Darksiders has been looking for? If so then here are 5 things that I think Platinum could bring to the Darksiders..."

The story is too old to be commented.

The only thing I'd be worried about platinum messing up is the story/voice acting. But yea graphically darksiders has always been "meh" from a technical perspective, and it's combat, though solid, has never rivaled other high level action games like Bayonetta, DMC, or even Ninja Gaiden. Platinum could definitely beef up those aspects of the game pretty easily.

Technically I agree they weren't much to look at but artistically I thought they were awesome and aww inspiring.

I JUST WANT THE FRANCHISE TO CONTINUE!

Platinum Games, make them a fair offer please, and make Darksiders a trilogy.

I dont care the only thing that I am sure is that I will buy it if Platinum bless this saga with their fingers.
Darksiders games were so mediocre.

IMAO

i'm not worried at all.
IMO the darksider games weren't that great to begin with.
if anything they could make it better.

Not played No 2 yet, but the first game was great. Clean up the graphics a bit (keep the style) and everything is fine.

Well, I'd like to see more fluid combat, at 60FPS on next-gen hardware. Darksiders 2 was awesome, but the open world takes its toll, which separates it from DmC, GoW, bayonetta etc. Next-gen would be most ideal. Quite frankly, to keep the open world while offering insane combat options at a fluid 60FPS, it would NEED to be next-gen.

Love the Darksiders series, but I can definitely admit it needs some fine tuning.

You didn't mention God Hand and MGR resembles it a lot.
