They really need to bring red faction back to life, that game is loved by many... and those other games too but I love red faction more than any of those other games. Bring back the destruction!

Nice to see they are looking for input from the people that will either buy the games or not.

Darksiders 3 needs to be more like 1. Darksiders 2 was a very deluded experience in order to be longer.

And please hire Madureira as the creative director of the game please! His art made the game alive. If the art style changes the whole game will be a piece of generic crap.

I have to admit, the loot system in Darksiders 2 felt like an obstacle instead. I think the first game nailed Darksiders better. They probably had good intentions with making it more RPG, but the animations, amongst other things suffered for it.

Agreed, most of DS2 felt like a chore to me with more platforming than action.
I am not saying I didn't liked the platforming, its just it was too much and was bit of a chore to me.

DS1 had little low amount of platforming, lack of verticality but it did good.

Make red faction good again. It needs to be much more like guerilla was.

i thought squarenix owned supreme commander? if not i hope they keep the series going with user mods in mind. i loved the first one and the expansion. i still play it to this day.

Nordic looks like the sort of company that buys titles and then either sales the IP for higher than what they brought or they farm out the titles to second rate developers who make a cheap low class game.

If Nordic really wants to be a top publisher than Darksiders will allow them to do it. But Darksiders, while amazing, was not known for it's return on investment. One of the main reasons they where able to grab the ip for 4.9 million. Regardless, the ip was great but it was the team that made it great. If anything I can see them resale the ip at a later point for more than 4.9 million.

Wow, they really want most of THQ's IPs. Well, at least this mean some of the games wont be left for dead. I want a new good Destroy All Humans! please.

Keep Darksiders from getting campy and too commercial. Keep it macabre with that perfect amount of eerie and creepy elements. Just keep it real.

Change the menu system and remove the silly portal puzzles. The first game had way better puzzle elements. Keep the bombs because I love the horsemen's 'throw bomb' animation, and continue with the huge enemy design. Just make the combat with said giants more original and less SoTC style.
