Blimey, Darksiders I And II Are Rather Cheap Just Now

Opinion is divided over the Darksiders games. There are those who wrongly don't like them, while far better looking people recognise what a tip-top third-person action-adventure biff-me-do they truly are. And right now they're 90% off on Steam. I'm not usually one to make a post because a single game is having a sale, but bloody hell, £4.50 for both of them?!

Darksiders 3 Is Still Planned, Obvs

Can even the Four Horsemen survive an apocalyptic event? Nordic Games hope so. When THQ went down in flames, Nordic bought up Darksiders - but not its creators, Vigil Games - and (naturally) declared that the hack 'n' slash action-RPG was not dead. While some assumed this would mean a Darksiders III, Nordic were a little vague, and the first we saw of DS again…

Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition Riding Out Tomorrow

The 'Deathinitive Edition' of Darksiders II [official site] will ride onto PC tomorrow, publishers Nordic Games have announced at awfully short notice. It took them ages to even quietly confirm a PC version of the open-world hacking-and-slashing action-RPG's revamp and now boom, here, it's out tomorrow. (John really dug its original release in 2012.) Expect improved graphics, a rebalancing, and a fair bit of confusion…

Saints Row, Darksiders, Metro Arrive On GOG DRM-Free

The ghost of THQ is still with us today as some of the publisher’s greatest hits find new life on GOG.

This is the first…

Death Lives! – Darksiders Is ‘Not Dead,’ Says Dev

Update: Confirmation/statement from Nordic Games below. The short version? "We can and will not settle for second-best solutions in the case of Darksiders." Original: Things were not looking so great for, er, Death for a little bit there. THQ had a run-in with its own sort of reaper, and the Darksiders license sat in limbo seemingly unwanted for ages. That is, until Nordic Games scooped it up…

Fin: THQ Sells Off Most Studios, Basically Done

Update: Helpfully, reader and probable Prince of Handsomeness The JG Man dug up the court form outlining details (including amounts, back-up bidders, etc) of each sale. You can peruse that here. Original: Well, I suppose it was inevitable. After THQ's attempt at averting a Humpty Dumpty sales situation failed miserably, the writing was pretty much on the wall. So now the grim reaper's scythe has hacked the once-gargantuan…

THQ Loses CFO, Gains Mysterious Financial Backer

THQ, if you didn't know (hint: you did), is in some rather deep water. Not only has it opted to delay a whole mess of games in the wake of Darksiders II's not-quite-megaton splash, it's also in a teensy bit of debt. By which I of course mean $50 million - using "teensy bit" as a term relative to all the money ever printed in the whole…

Darksiders II Is Finally Released Everywhere Else

Non-Americans, you can finally play Darksiders II. While we've no idea why at least the UK release was mysteriously delayed by a full week, other than THQ's apparent absolute determination to spew money away at every opportunity, it remains a game that's absolutely worth your pennies. To read my review of it, head yourself over here. Spoiler: I liked it a lot.

Scythe For Sore Eyes: Vigil Wants To Fix Darksiders’ Port

To hear John tell it, Darksiders II is a wondrous thing - a Frankenstein chimera of other games' best bits, but infused with its own unique spirit and rippling apocalypse biceps. But, shockingly enough, all is not well in the land of War, Death, Strife, and Fury. The PC port's been decried as incredibly barebones - with nearly non-existent graphics options, lousy menus, and the…

Seems Nice Enough: Getting To Know Darksiders’ Death

Hey everyone, it's Death! You remember, Death, right? I could've sworn you two met at some point. Ah well, he's really great. Here, here, both of you grab a drink and sit down. Now then, let me tell you about this guy. Oh, sure, he acts like a half-clothed embodiment of humanity's inevitable end with the physique of a mountain (that has great abs) and a…

Death Becomes This Darksiders II Footage

Whatever gripes a lowly hack like Jim Rossignol might have thrown at the original Darksiders game, there was no denying that it was spectacular and handsome. That hasn't changed for the next game, the cleverly titled Darksiders II, which casts its web of hypnotic fantasy violence our way in a two minute slice of (mostly) in-game footage, below. I really do like a) the classically…
