Not surprising, really. There has to be 4 just based on what the game is about.
First one was so good!!! One of my favorite ps3 games. Second one had more freedom but want as good... Still like it though.. My excitment for this third one isn't there... I'll prob pick it up at lower price..
You're missing something. I was sceptic at first, but DS3 is awesome. I haven't had this much fun in gaming for a long time. Easily an 8/10 for me now after they've gotten rid of the annoying bugs with the patches.
I think you’re missing out if you’re a fan of darksiders. Darksiders 3 is really good to be truthful it’s become my favorite darksiders game the world is just so fun to explore and really intricate and a lot bigger than it first seems. Fury experiences the most character growth out of the three horsemen so far and she easily has the best main weapon hands down. I say give it a shot there’s a pretty good chance you’ll end up really liking it.
If you feared that is not a real Darksiders game, fear not. IT IS a real Darksiders game :) and a great one in that.
DS4 would be an awesome way to tie the previous 3 together in an epic finale that restores order from chaos.
Don’t let the bad reviews fool you. It’s a good game. Not great. Good. Good enough where I feel like I got my money’s worth. I’m playing it on the X. I don’t know if that has a bearing on its technical performance or not. I like the game enough to where I spent a little over 4 hours learning the game and I’m gonna start over from scratch, now that I know what to expect. Change up my approach a bit. It’s not the same caliber as GoW or Bayonetta in terms of combat, but she can kick ass in the right hands.
@DaFeelz : I'm not the kind of person who watch reviews... I would have skipped great games like Dead Space 3, The Order... Concerning DS3, I'm just not as excited as I was with the first one. But since I platinumed the 2 first ones, Im picking this one up but later!!
We knew there’d be a Darksiders game based on each Horseman since the end of the first one I just hope they they get their act together and release a fourth title as good as the first two
It'll be interesting since the 4th one is a gunslinger.
....like Death and War ?
@Emme Death wielded a Scythe as the main weapon and War a Sword.
It's not a AAA game. I am sure DS3 will do 1 million plus lifetime which is good for a budget title
Not a budget game at $60
They did it’s called darksiders 3
The third is garbage. Took the engine from the last game, ported it to this generation, then put the third story content on to it. Zero effort to improve the game. Shame really.
What..? 100k is abysmal for any AAA game. It also weirds me how the article is so enthusiastic about the game "SURELY BEING ABLE TO SELL 100K". Makes it seem like the game was an absolute commercial failure. This should be selling 500k+ at this point.
It's not an AAA game though. Darksiders 3 seems to have been very cheap.
Darksiders 3 was developed by a new studio with 60 total employees. It’s not a AAA game.
Looks like someone's been sleeping under a rock
In what universe is darksiders 3 a triple aaa title lol
It really doesn't matter if Darksiders 3 is an AAA game or not. 100k is definitely abysmal for this game, I'm sorry.
Chill. A 4th game is coming and that's what's important and hopefully it will strife to higher standards.
Talking about cost vs profit. It was evidently very cheap to make making 100,000 copies very good to them.
It’s not that you’re wrong because 100 K when compared to other titles is rather poor Would they have been more happier if it had more? yes, But at the end of the day if they made their money is back and worth the ad for the eight successful enough to do the sequel It’s clear they didnt spend a bucket load on the game, And unlike the majority of companiy they set the bar’s low And It may have paid off even if it was a little
The game had a low budget and the developer said they would be happy if it did 100k. For many other games that would be abysmal. For this one it's not at all. Maybe learn how things work.
Gees, setting the bar a bit low aren't you?
No they are setting the bar at a realistic expectation unlike the majority of studios who see games has a failure if they don’t sell ten million copies and have people playing years down the road while milking them dry
First they should focus on feedback from gamers and try to improve the game. They can use this as an learning experience for darksiders 4 The 4th could be a 4 player co-op game with all the horsemen. Since the first 3 games have been all taking place around the same time during different events
Doubt they'd be able to pull off a 4-player co-op game. Each game had different mechanics, will be a difficult task for level designers to get a co-op game with 4 different protagonists with different mechanics to gel cohesively. I'd love to be proved wrong though
People need to quit bringing up co-op it wouldn’t fit this series and what it’s about matter of fact it would ruin it. Darksiders has always been about being a badass horseman of the apocalypse who takes on angels and demons alike while exploring dungeons,solving puzzles,growing more powerful and getting items to access previously inaccessible areas like a metroidvania all in a very atmospheric game world. If they added co-op it would ruin most of that just like co-op ruined the dead space series and plenty of other games. There’s more than enough brain dead multiplayer and co-op games out there leave darksiders which has always been a single player action adventure as it is
This new smarter version of THQ is nice. They own so many IP's now Really hoping for them to remaster saints 1-3 before giving the series a soft reboot to focus more the series being like SR2( which had perfect mixture of crazy and serious) I want kingdom of amular on ps4
Oh god yes! I would sell my left testicle for a kingdom of Amalur remaster lol such an underrated game from last gen with one of the best combat systems in a rpg game
KOA remaster won't happen from THQ. While they own the IP. EA still has the rights and assets to the first game. So They have two options. Remake it or make a sequel.
i am really surprised here. i just hope they know what they are doing. but this just confirms my suspicion: as long as bigger studios break even eventually they will go on creating the next subpar game no one wanted.
Make it like the first one.
I need to pick this up love the first 2.
Single player only games are cheaper to make.
How hard is it to fix the bugs & frame rate in darksidears 3. I payed $75 for this game digital. It so dame bad on the Pro i Can't even injoy the game. Fixs this game ASAP THQ.
oh, mine is working like a charm :/ on the PRO too... Had one crash and in one cutscene the framerate was bad but thats about it.
1 day i’ll buy the ‘DarkSiders Collection” that includes all 4 games.
My God 100,000in sales that is a low number I thought darksiders was more popular then that.
If you are happy with a 100k then darksiders 3 must be seriously budget lol. I loved darksiders 1 but I’m hesitant to try this one and statements like these don’t help.
well this is encouraging i was worried that all the negative feedback from the third game would scare them off making a 4th entry I actually found the 3rd game to be a worthy entry in its own right and really enjoyed it. My only real problem was the performance issues on the PC version (cant speak for the console versions)
Well i'm glad they are going to make a fourth one i have enjoyed all three so far although the third is my least favourite but still a good game. I actually hope we get a 5th one where you can play as any of the four horsemen.
I have only seen negative and mixed reviews from some reviewers I follow, but I still want to play this game at some point. I really want to see another Darksiders title though, just to complete the franchise if they can manage it. It's good to hear that 71,000 copies were sold on Steam alone, it makes me hopeful for a 4th game. Darksiders 1 and 2 were great games with both good and bad parts, but it was clear the developers cared about the franchise. I was sad to see the less than great reviews for the 3rd game, but I am guessing that they are finding their bearings as a newly-formed studio. Although I am not getting it at release, I will be picking it up at some point to show some support at the very least.
Small studio small budget
