Microsoft Most powerful console available. The Xbox is doing well on its homecourt, but on the road sales aren't dominating.

Darksiders. Joe Mad stops making Battlechasers and this is what we get.

A couple years ago, i didn't give 2 shits about this game. Now, it's coming out January 5th and it looks pretty damn good. For the longest I thought it was a DMC like action game but it turn out it's just like Zelda. You even get a horse!

Yeah, I wrote something on this a while back, I'm pretty anxious for this one myself. The Horse of Ash is the SHIT! I posted some pics too, but they probably have better ones now. Lemme check...

Yeah, Here are a few.

Everytime I see this game, I'm underwhelmed... although, Joe Madd is my favorite comic book artist, hands down.

For that reason alone, I have to give it a shot.

I'm also underwhelmed.

But not by Darksiders. I'm underwhelmed by Xeo's trivia awnsering abilities on 1 vs 100.

I was a huge fan of Joe Madureira as a kid. Deadpool, Uncanny X-Men, Battle Chasers etc.

I think this may be the third game he has worked on and the first that will actually be released.

Hopefully there will be a demo available as I will be very interested to see what the end product is. The character design looks awesome.

Nice developer walkthrough. 3 parts showing off a bit of the first dungeon.







Mark Hamill's character sounds just like his Joker lol

First American review is in, from PLAY "we give it at least a 7 unless it physically kills a staff member" Magazine.

Quote:
That’s the thing about Darksiders: it’s all beautiful, from the environments to the gameplay, to the characters, to the score that courses through it. It’s everything Vigil aspired for it to be, and they aimed high. Rather than attempt to reinvent the wheel or emulate a single archetype, they’ve taken the best gameplay elements from the most universally revered games of the past and made them their own, integrating them into a single epic that has all of the intrinsic hallmarks that define a studio capable of producing the kind of classic Darksiders is destined to be. If ever there was a pure gamer’s game, Darksiders is it.

10 out of 10




Full Review.

Damn. I may have to pick this bad boy up despite not even being close to finishing what I already have.

I have always been a fan of Madureira and would like to support his efforts.

And thanks for starting this informative thread tets.

IGN review

Quote:
9.0 Presentation
Great sense of style, cool chunky characters, nicely framed cutscenes, boils down information/collectables well in the pause menus.

9.0 Graphics
Far better use of colour than most games with grim settings like this. Well-realised, varied environments. Occasionally walking animations look cumbersome, but generally the animations are excellent.

8.5 Sound
Good voice acting for the most part... although the guy who plays War chews the scenery a bit too much at times. Excellent score.

8.5 Gameplay
Amazing how well this comes together considering how many mechanics and different control combinations are packed in. A little easy... and a few clumsy sequences, but great overall.

8.0 Lasting Appeal
No multiplayer, but this is a pretty decent length single player game.

9.0
Outstanding

Did anyone pick this badboy up yet?

Reviews have been favorable but it isn't out yet where I live. Probably due to that monster storm over the weekend.
