Default Darksiders

Anybody waiting for this game? Looks like it will be an action filled hack & slash.

DARKSIDERS

I haven't made up my mind yet. Just wondered what the rest of the community thought about it.

Meh looks ok. Seems a little like God of War you know, some immortal guy slashing through thousands of enemies. I saw a gameplay demo on Xplay i think. I'm more interested in Section 8, I'd like to see how that turns out.

The "main" character in that game looks like a rip off/copy of Arthas from the Warcraft series (WoW and WC3)

Story sounds great, art style looks fantastic, if it's solid gameplay with some good puzzles breaking up the action it could be a winner. I don't see any platforming like you get in GoW. This looks more like an open world brawler like Prototype. If THQ gets this out before January and markets the hell out of it, it will give some competition to EA's Dante's Inferno, that's for sure.

Looks like a mix of Prototype and the good ol' Soul Reaver.

Still, i am not interested in this game.

So all this talk of Dante's Inferno and Bayonetta today peaked my interest in this title again. So I went on over to IGN and watched the 3 most recent vids on the game. The game definitely has potential but what I noticed... is at the end of each video the release date is totally different, lol. Constantly changing release dates does nothing for instiling confidence in how good the game is going to be. Still there are some gameplay elements that may give Darksiders the plus to Dante's God of War total conversion, but we'll have to wait and see exactly how well everything comes together to be sure.

Ya it's a shame more of these 3rd person action games are not available on PC. I mean Batman was fan-bloody-tastic on PC. Devil May Cry seems to be quite popular and of course the old Prince of Persia was great, etc... They even gave Batman added features like PhysX. Perhaps the ROI on action games for PC just isn't there? I don't really know but it is a shame.

Can't say I have anything against enjoying some good games on a console though. Everything from Pong - Atari - PS3... I have enjoyed many a great titles using a joypad and a TV. :)
