It looks as if Nordic Games' Darksiders II may be joining the long list of games that have gotten next-generation remasters - that is if a recent Amazon product listing is any indication.
I would be really happy with this. I am very sad that there will most likely never be another Darksider game because I really enjoyed them. I would love to replay Darksiders II on my One regardless :)
I'm actually playing through Darksiders 1 right now because I got stuck the first time and returned the game because I was renting it. Now.. I was just thinking how great a DS3 game would be on the current gen platforms. This news sucks because DS2 just wan't as good of a game with the changes they made. Neither of the games need to be remade anyway despite them being graphically average at the time they came out.
Ok. I loved ds2 more than ds1 :)
Would really only make sense if both games were included. And, if it was done to see if interest in more, I'd probably buy it. Enjoyed the first immensely, sadly have not gotten that far in the 2nd one, but enjoyed what I did play of it as much as the first.
Does the second actually follow on from the first? Completed the first one and bought the second but never got round to playing it. Apparently DS2 smashes the first one.
You can play them on their own equally, but, IMHO, it doesn't make sense to bring one to current gen and not the other considering you're cutting out part of the story just because it was published two years earlier on the same hardware. As far as follow from the first, yes. But, you can get an idea of the first from the second. You just won't be knowledgeable of the parties involved from the first the way you would had you played it.
i loved the first one as much as you apparently it was an insane game, a mature Zelda game with an amazing character design.. The second one however didn't catch me much, it felt like it aged badly and the environments are empty. i played only an hour or 2 but if the game gets more interesting later on i can give it another chance on PS4
Why not? I never played it but wanted too.
Glad I waited for this!
That's pretty sweet, being able to experience this new on One or PS4 the first time will probably be quite the experience. :)
Not really, I have played it on PC at 1080p/60 fps it really does not look that fantastic. I guess 60 fps is always nice, but still felt like the PS3 version to me. A great game just don't expect some new experience or huge difference.
Here we go again?...
Again what? Remasters? They shouldn't really bother peopl. You're not made to buy them but offer people who didn't get a chance to play the game before to play them on next gen consoles with better fidelity. It's just convenient.
Danke wunter Slaushjah,but seriously look at these dislikes. I for one like this game,but i'm also tired of this maelstrom of definitive editions orbiting this black hole of the industry at this moment.
meh... i want Darksiders 3 not remaster
I want Darksiders 3 as well but DS2 wasn't profitable enough for THQ. Nordic games is no doubt testing the waters with this. If enough people buy it, then we may get a third.
Really good point. If this does gain traction then that will give them the best excuse to release a third entry.
I might consider it if they did a HD collection, since I liked the first one more than the second.
They should announce Darksiders 3 this E3 so at least that would be awesome.
I agree, it would be nice to get an E3 announcement of Darksiders 3.
Getting extremely tired of all these remastered, re-released, updated or otherwise games. A few here and there is cool, but it seems like a new one is announced every other week.
There's always the option not to buy them. Believe it or not, but people do exist who missed out on last gen games and remasters are a good way for them to experience certain titles. An audience for them definitely exists.
Starting to see a new trend if true...and why not offer 1 and 2 remastered? It would seem like the better thing to do, not to mention the better deal. Remastered, Re-release with a HD update seems to be the new normal for this gen.
Anyone else think the remakes are ridculous now? I wish they would put the capital to new IPs
OT: I just LOVED The Dark Side - Starwars on the ... was it the amiga or PC?  Just an immediate response to title...think about it I say [edit2] ..Dark Forces...I think it was.
Would have been something if both Ds and Ds II were getting this treatment + a Ds III announcement.
We need exclusive remasters as well! I would rather have that.
Why they decided to remaster the worst one is beyond me. They added unnecessary bloat to Darksiders 2, not to mention animations, amongst other things were of lesser quality.
Hell yeah darksiders one was great and 2.I personally feel like was better I totally get this for my ps4 but I really want darksiders 3
This game can be pick on Steam ,the complete edition for 7€ on any sale,just want to see the price they expect to put on this for new gen consoles..
I may buy this just to support the series, I need Darksiders 3.
I wanted Darksiders 3.
How about some dev support for Darksiders 1 on PC? It crashes for me every time I try to start a game. :-(
