Darksiders Video Preview
GameSpot UK goes hands-on with a preview build of Darksiders.
The weapon and ability buy system, the souls and stuff reminds me of x-blades. Scythe looks cool tho. Bosses too.
looks awesome, i've been following this game for a while. looks a lot like a mix of Zelda and God of War
Darksiders is going to be a game that will live in infamy. Finally a new game to bring the "Epic Action Adventure" Genre back to life.
ya i agree with asapco it has dmc prototype and n.g. all in one... anyway ill buy this game when i get and finish GoW3 and dante's inferno. then FF 13
Gamespot UK? Don't they mean Gamespot AUS.... that doesn't sound like a british accent.. Game looks insane! day 1 purchase!
How the hell are people getting Gears of War out of this?!? Has no one hear played DMC??? Seriosuly watch a video of devil may cry 3 and tell me they aren't the similar - from the souls to the upgrade system... no gears...
looks cool but why the exaggerated sword size and hands?? adds a kooky cartoony look to something that should look evil.
took me a while to find out "kayosetta" is "chaos eater" :lol: looks like zelda meets god of war... the good parts of god of war. AWESOME :D
Reminds me a lot of God of War but unlike the annoying God of War fans, I am happy about this! Definitly going to buy this one! And I agree with slaggo...so many great games coming out it's insane!
Damn, that's f'ing awesome. Definitely a day one reserve for me...christ, there's a bunch of games already coming out for 2010...Darksiders, Dante's Inferno, Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell, Red Dead Redemption, God Of War 3, etc Thank god I'm working 2 jobs.
Why does every modern adventure game get labeled as a God of War rip off? Why does every Kratos fanboi feel it necessary to voice their loyal, yet biased, opinion to the masses? Yes, God of War is a great franchise. Awesome story, amazing game. So are we to understand that there should never be another adventure game that combines brutal action, great puzzles, beautiful scenery, epic story lines, awesome cut-scenes, a kick-ass protagonist, and endless combos and power-ups? Really? Why? It seems like we would have a very sad selection if it were up to you guys. Art begets art. If artistic expression should never be duplicated, we would all still be playing Super Mario Bros. and watching Charles in Charge, you commies. God of War inspired a lot of designers. It's not plagiarism---it's adulation. Get used to it.
Why are so many people so hyped about this? I'm probably going to get it for no other reason than DMC4's mediocrity starving me for hack n' slashers, but I wouldn't call all that we've seen much more than average. =/ Maybe using the word 'Zelda' really does help sales... And the fanboys to get excited.
Definitely getting this for the PS3! And someone said that they could see a little Zelda in this game, and now I'm seeing what he was getting at. This looks like a really good Zelda/God of War crossover!
This will be an amazing adventure game. An actual open-world action hack-n-slash with a horse for traveling. It can't get any cooler then this.
