ClockworkHouse presents SallyNasty's Game Club Announcements "Where the Games come monthly, but the cheevos are forever!"

I have no desire to play Payday and have 1k'd Brothers, for what it is worth. The balance are of interest to me, especially Wasteland and Technomancer

I'm hoping to be done with Oxenfree replay and fairly determined to finish Rise of the Tomb Raider by early December, so up for something whenever.

Something via Now might be good as a new subscriber.

In that case, how about Darksiders for December and DmC for January? Anyone interested in that arrangement?

Be advised, Darksiders has a glitched cheev.

That's why I was doing it in a month where you said you wouldn't play.

If it's Darksiders will give it a go, not played before.

I am well up for replaying Darksiders. I want to try to get through the first two games properly (although techically i finished the first game...twice....I never finished the second) so i can grab the third when it's available.

I'll give it an honest effort, I already own Darksiders so no reason not too.

Are we getting the band back together?

Also, did we cross over into an alternate timeline where Darksiders isn’t a joke? Or has it just finally run it’s course?

Either way, too late for me, I gave up waiting and played it earlier this year. It was a lot of fun. Looking forward to trying Darksiders 2 sometime soon.

For the record, we never broke up. We just took a 13 month vacation.

Sounds like we're on for Darksiders in December! Sally, you want me to make the thread, since you're sitting this one out?

Sounds great! I'll pick it back up for Jan and I will update the OP.

Which one? For the collectible shards? Just watched a video of them, and I don't remember any of it, despite apparently 1K-ing this one less than 2 years ago.

Is it any good?

It looks like the achievement for maxing out everything was glitched at launch but has been fixed for a couple years now. The same glitch in Darksiders II, however, has never been fixed.

Oh, it did get fixed? Well then...

It sounds like most of us are either close to finishing Darksiders or have given up on it. Looking forward to next month, what do you think about:

  • DmC: Devil May Cry
  • Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
  • Dead Island

Any thoughts? I had been all ready to go with DmC, but I'm not sure I want another brawler after finishing Darksiders. At this point, I'm leaning toward Hellblade.

I am right there with you, clocky. I would be down with dead island

FWIW, all three games are available on Xbox via Game Pass. PlayStation Now has Dead Island.

It looks like both services also have Dead Island Riptide. Is that one better? Is it a sequel? I don't remember anything about these games except for their egregious marketing stunts.

Dead Island is the only one of those mentioned that I haven't played through already, so if that gets the nod, I'm in.

I have put Darksiders down.

As it's on Now I'd give Dead Island (whichever) a go.

I do want to play Hellblade at some point but not on the pile at the mo.

Hellblade has been on my to play list for a while.

I seem to recall Riptide is a sort of sequel (basically the same engine and tech, just with a new setting? I think?) it was the one that had the whole collectors edition "mutilated torso" fiasco attached to it.

So this is the thread that decides the game. Guess I should tag in here for next month.

I'd be up for DmC or Hellblade.

I hesitate to weigh in, as I'm terrible at keeping up with these...but I've been meaning to get around to Hellblade sometime soon.

I have Dead Island and DmC, I will try to join in if possible

Dead Island: 4
Hellblade: 3
DmC: 2

It's not a democracy, but those are the votes. Sounds like Dead Island would have the most interest and is available on both console sub services, so how about that?

(I confess, I might play Hellblade, anyway.)

I enjoyed Hellblade when I played it. It’s mostly a walking simulator with some combat here and there.

Hellblade been on to buy list so Id be happy with all 3

The thread is live: Dead Island for January!
