THQ Fails to Deliver

Back in February, it was announced that those early copies of Darksiders that came with a special slip of paper with a promo code on them would grant buyers a free copy of Red Faction: Guerrilla, as well as a “digital Hellbook” full of Darksiders artwork. That hasn't exactly proved to be the case. (Darksiders: Wrath of War, Red Faction: Guerrilla, THQ, Xbox 360)

@ mcgrawgamer
what are you talking about? i said that it was bullshit for them to give you copies of a game for a console you dont own. whats with the name calling??

I got mine
PS3 version. It took a bit longer than expected and I received no confirmations of any sort so I thought I had somehow missed the deadline. But one day I got a random package and sure enough there was RFG.

Gotta say that I enjoyed both games a lot althought I'm sure that had something to do with the price (40 and free).

My code was invalid...
Oh well, I alredy rented RFG and I returned Darksiders for $ towards Heavy Rain. Not much of a loss to me, but a free game is a free game. And I was getting close to that platinum on RFG too. =/

psh no problem
i got mine within the time they had said

hellbook was awesome

I wanted Red faction anyway so getting it free was a big plus

this is just unnecessary rage against thq =(

For $19.42, including tax, you can get Red Faction: Guerrilla used and you don't even have to put up with Darksiders! :D

I finished both games
And both were pretty good. IMO But I admit that Darksiders fell short of my expectations.
Simon_Brezhnev  +   1539d ago
yeah darksiders last battle was horrible that was one easy ass boss and i hope this time for the PS3 version they dont give it a 360 control layout i hate using R2 to shoot.

I finally received my copy about 3 weeks ago.
I too was getting worried and exchanged a few emails with them and threatened to file a charge dispute with my credit card company. I received the game shortly after.

I didn't even open the game until last night (haven't had time), played if for a few hours and it's not a bad game but it probably wasn't worth the stress.

I got mine in mid april.
Apparently I had 'perpetual downloads' checked so they refunded my card for that.
Nikuma  +   1539d ago
Took em a while and I didn't think the game was coming, but it eventually did and it was free so no complaints here.

Last Month
It took a few months but I finally got my copy.

Should have pirated it.

Something isn't fully right with the article...
because when I placed my order, there was no where in the store where i saw the picture they displayed on that article.

"Most people who saw that image automatically assumed that all was well and if they waited patiently their game would arrive."

I got mine mid-April along with the digital artbook on a dvd. Thing is, it seems like there's something the article is omitting on this situation.
