Feature: Don't let us down

10 PC games we’re still looking forward to in 2018

As we stare into the weary, craggy face of the final quarter of 2018, there is still a glimmer of hope. The games are not yet done. They will never be done. And the impending release of them, some close, some a little further away, stirs something within us. The delicate, easily crushed butterfly of excitement. We may catch it yet, to keep in our…

THQ Nordic’s Steam sale makes pun-laden remasters extra cheap

It's hard not to feel that publisher THQ Nordic and RPS share a mutual love of terrible puns. Case in point: Their sale this weekend on Steam, running from now until Monday, August 27th. While most of their catalogue is discounted, the best deals are to be found in remasters with terrible pun titles. Darksiders Warmastered Edition, Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition and the recent Red Faction…

Darksiders Warmastered Edition out now, free for owners of the original

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition [official site] is a terrible name. It's the remastered edition of the original Darksiders, that brawly third-person action game about apocalyptic horse-fancier War, so I can see their thinking. But... no. It is now out on PC though which is nice, and owners of the original can upgrade for free.

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…

Have You Played… Darksiders II

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Ooh, I like me some Darksiders II [official site]. Yet another tragic victim of the collapse of THQ, the prospects of a third game in the series seem ever-far away, with current owners Nordic Games still saying such a thing is yet to…

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…

Brightsiders: Crytek Hires Displaced Darksiders Devs

Every dark cloud has a silver lining. It's a delightfully optimistic statement, though in truth, it's not always, well, true. (Note: I mean this in the metaphorical sense. I don't claim to be an expert on clouds' relative silver content, as I still believe they're made of cotton candy.) Case in point: at first, it sure seemed like Darksiders dev Vigil Games would be getting…

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…

THQ (Sort of) Explains Warhammer 40K MMO Changes

THQ's seen better days. The gaming world has all but left it in a gutter inches away from death's door, bleeding worrisome amounts of money. Worse still, the struggling publisher took another set of brass knuckles to the teeth in the form of a radical downsizing of its great MMO hope: Dark Millennium Online. The Warhammer-40K-themed behemoth has been stripped of its two-ton subscription-fueled MMO supersuit,…

The Grim Speaker: Darksiders 2 Interview

I took to the role of Death with great aplomb when I played Darksiders II recently and later that same day I had the chance to speak with game director Marvin Donald. Although we didn't question the nature of Death in an existential fashion, we did discuss how he feels about his game being compared to The Legend of Zelda, the stranger worlds through which…

Feature: Death becomes me

Hands On: Darksiders II

I didn’t play Darksiders until its PC release, which meant I’d already heard a million people compare it to Zelda and God of War. What a pleasant surprise to play the game and find that it had character of its own and kept rewarding me with new toys throughout its substantial and entertainingly silly story. Sitting down to play the sequel I thought it would…

Death, Cut Your Fingernails: Darksiders II

I'm so tired this morning that if horseman Death came charged toward me, I'd limply reach out a hand to touch his scythe and embrace the sweet, sweet sleep that awaits. But fortunately he's fictional, and I'll wake up soon. He is, however, to feature in Darksiders II, and if you needed more proof than my word, there are screenshots of said game below. They're…

Warhammer 40k Dark Millennium Dated 2013

UPDATE: The info has been removed now, so we must assumed it was posted in error. Whether that means it's wrong, I don't know. We won't be grinding nobz any time soon... THQ's Warhamer 40k MMO, Dark Millennium Online has been dated for the distant future of March 13, 2013. This official website bore the news, with a bit of text about the "Sargos Sector"…

Shine A Light: Dark Millenium Online Trailer

In the grim darkness of the future, there is only Warhammer 40k MMORPG Dark Millenium Online. No, seriously- I'm not sure that there's another game we've been posting about this E3 week with a release date as far off as 2013. Curiously, this (brief) trailer brands the game as a "Massively Multiplayer Online Action Experience", and when I had a brief chat with the developers…

THQ Says 40k MMO Due By March 31, 2013

That's because they told their investors that the maximalist sci-fi Warhammer game is going to fall in the "fiscal year 2013". That's an imaginary year made of numbers that falls between April 2012 and March 2013. So the field is pretty wide, but we can expect it to turn up by the end of 2012, maybe. There's actually a surprising amount of information available on…
