Darksiders 3

Pages

Huh.

Maybe this one will include a summary of what the hell was actually happening in Darksiders 2. I couldn't follow the plot of that game at all.

My biggest concern is that the brief description I've seen of it sounds like it's another "open world, climb towers, clear the map of icons" kind of thing. But aside from that - might be worth a look.

Maybe it'll force me to go back and give Darksiders 2 (yet) another go...I just can't seem to get very far into that game at all.

Always thought this one would be two players, aren't Fury and Strife supposed to be twins in this universe.

Either way glad they are getting to make another one, I'll also have to go back and finish 2 now.

Yeah, me neither. I think I have about 30 minutes of play time over 3 attempts.

War's Betrayal?

Did I forget something about the original Darksiders?

Put me in the Darksiders 2 WTF camp, too. For whatever reason it just didn't grab me. Should go back to it someday maybe.

Well, he was! It was the angels who brought about the Apocalypse early. Stupid angels.

I was always mildly interested in both games (mainly because I love Joe Madureira, which is why I'm also keeping an eye on Battle Chasers), but never played them. Maybe this will be the one...

Darksiders 3 Gameplay Reveal

Wow that looks generic and terrible.

That sure is a video-game-ass video game

It has that Darksiders art style I like, but the combat really lacks punch. Whether the whip connects or not, it doesn't feel like it does.

Pretty sexist game. They never focus on her butt and they cover her up completely. Death was half naked showing off his manliness. This game just hates the female form. Sad. Maybe there will be DLC to put her in a schoolgirl outfit or a tasteful tribal outfit that respects African culture like in Resident Evil. We can only hope.

Also her hair is doing some funny things like they ran out of time to complete the animations or screwed up the physics on it. Combat looks kind of boring compared with the previous games. The story seems kind of dumb. Why save a dead world. Who cares at this points if the seven deadly sins are running things on Earth.

I dunno, for pre-alpha footage it looks okay. The character, creature, and environment design is in good shape. I like the variety of creatures they showed, though who knows how that will compare to the final game. The combat animations are pretty good, but the hits don't have any reaction or any flair like bits falling off or splashes of blood or flashes of light or whatever. Obviously the UI is nonexistent, and hopefully those aren't final sound effects.

I swear I've seen some of those combos in Castlevania Lament of Innocence.

The demon dudes look like they came from dragon age origins. Overall it didn't look all that good to me. I didn't look all that bad either. However, this is just one level. The boss was kind of cool but it didn't wow me like some from dark souls, devil may cry, or god of war. Pretty consistent for darksiders game though. I having trouble even remembering any of the bosses from the other games.

Darksiders of Amalur: Reckoning

I came here for Darksiders jokes....

Im excited amd cautiously optimistic. The first darksiders was great and had one of the best cliffhanging endings. I didn't finish the second. I think I made it halfway through and moved on to something else and was never able to make it back. I've tried to restart a few times, but it starts slow. The second one was also bloated. Too many systems that were unrefined.

But hopefully the third improves in all that

Are they any good?

Need to compare to the original gameplay reveal which was in Alpha stages, but they got another quick glimpse video.

I really like the spin to her double jump.

The whip hits have MUCH more impact now compared to the earlier videos. Starting to feel more optimistic about this one.

It's gotten better! I'm pleased with that. I'm curious to see if they've made structural improvements over Darksiders II.

It just kind of looks like God of War.

I mean, so did the first one, at a glance but that was really a zelda clone with the visual aesthetics of 90's-era Image comics more than anything.

Thought the same thing when she used those weapons on long chains.

Don't forget that if it's anything like the other games, she'll have a few different weapons to choose from.

TIL: this effin' thread doesn't even show up when searching via Google.

Anywho, evidently a month ago a documentary was put together focused on the development of the first two Darksiders games and what circumstances led to the third. I really enjoyed it. It also sounds like the heads of both Airship Syndicate and Gunfire Games both in hindsight would have preferred the smaller, 20-hour game scale of the first game for Darksiders 2, so that bodes well for 3. No one seemed to think negatively of the loot system in Darksiders 2, so that's got me a bit concerned since that was one of the weakest aspects of the game to me.

Regardless, a good watch I think.

Watching that made me play Darksiders (the Warmastered edition, natch) again a couple weeks ago.

Er, so, this is coming out November 27

Sounds like IGN will have more info later this week.

I am happy but I know I won't have enough time to play it. Still might buy it though
