Ubisoft’s recently released addition to the Far Cry series came out a few weeks ago, and I’ve taken a long hiatus from productivity to sit down with their open world shooter, Far Cry 3.
The original Darksiders, released back in 2010, was an eclectic blend of everything from God of War to Portal. While Darksider’s story, setting and presentation were all top notch, many of the basic gameplay elements felt somewhat parred down in comparison to its many inspirations. So after plenty of hype and lots of media attention, does Darksiders 2 manage to rise above its predecessor to carve out its own identity? Definitely. (more…)
In this awesome trailer from Darksiders developers Vigil Games, we get to see the many ways in which we’ll be able to create our own unique version of death through leveling up and an extensive loot system. This is probably the best new feature they’ve added as it should really give you a reason to tackle dungeons and quests looking for that next great item. Check out the video below.
In this latest developer diary from THQ and Vigil Games, we get a better look at new protagonist Death and his motivations. Essentially, he wants to erase the supposed crimes of his brother by bringing all of mankind back to life. How he intends to accomplish this is beyond me, but I can’t wait to see it first hand when the game launches this June.
According to a blog post on Darksiders II’s official website, the game’s release has been pushed back from June to August. This of course makes me incredibly sad and happy at the same time. Sad that I wont be able to play it as soon as I’d hoped, and happy that the game will be getting the polish it needs. I’m so conflicted right now. As quoted on their site,
THQ has just announced that Darksiders II will be available in both Limited and Collector’s editon forms. The Limited edition is available to anyone who pre-orders the game and it comes with a voucher for the Argul’s Tomb DLC. Thankfully, unlike many other publishers who love to cut content and then resell it to you later, the Argul’s Tomb DLC will not be available day one. A bit like Battlefield 3 and its Back to Karkand expansion, this voucher simply guarantees you a free download of the DLC once it’s available online.
This highly anticipated Indie game is coming to a variety of digital platforms very soon! Hit the jump for more info.

Making it the most expensive DLC ever, each action figure being offered by Big Fish Toys in the Mass Effect line up will have cards featuring codes for use in Mass Effect 3. Each figure is going to put you back either $17.99 per figure or a set of four for $67.99. Better yet you won’t even be sure what content you’ll be getting as, according to reports, every card will be randomly inserted.(more…)
