Already played a few hours of Darksiders 2 and it is brilliant, really enjoying it!! If you ain't got it, get it now!
Take on the role of Death in Darksiders II or indulge your inner martial artist in Sleeping Dogs.
Death is here. This week marks the release of Darksiders II from developer Vigil Games on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
The direct sequel to Darksiders, this third-person action game is set in an apocalypse-torn landscape and follows the horseman Death instead of the original game's protagonist, War. The game tells a story that runs in parallel with the original, as Death attempts to clear War's "good" name, after his brother is accused of starting the end of times a little early.
Are you more swinging fists than slashing scythes? We've got you covered when the open-world game Sleeping Dogs finally sees release this week after some development troubles.
Originally set to be published by Activision, the game formerly known as True Crime: Hong Kong was dropped in 2011 and bought by publisher Square Enix, who renamed the title Sleeping Dogs. It's an open-world crime game set in the East, and the voice cast includes some of the biggest names in Asian and American movies and television, such as Emma Stone and Lucy Liu.
Other titles worth looking out for this week include New Super Mario Bros. 2, Dust: An Elysian Tail, and Summer Challenge: Athletics Tournament--for those wishing to relive the spirit of the games.
To see what else is out this week, check the full list below:
One sentence on a Mario game? Either people think there are too many or the writer just thinks the other games take priority. I don't think either personally, but I happen to know I'm not the only voice here...
@barren167 Why does it matter if Mario gets one sentence? The other games are releasing on multiple platforms.
