    Darksiders, homey dog. It's about the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, I think.

    Fuck off and die.

    Man, what is with that. I searched for info on a new Darksiders a while ago and made the same mistake. I don't even know what Darkstalkers is.

    Anyway: http://www.gameinformer.com/games/darksiders_ii/b/ps3/archive/2011/06/02/exclusive-darksiders-ii-reveal-trailer.aspx

    Darkstalkers is that fighting game with Morrigan, Felicia, and Hsien-Ko, as well as some other characters who didn't make it to Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

    That trailer looks like they plopped Warcraft characters into the world of Oblivion.

    Darksiders felt like every game ever but not as good with art done by a 13 year old boy.

    The portal gun was fun. But other than it was very forgetable. I am glad I did not pay full price for it.

    I always thought "darkseid" was a really stupid name for a character because it's a homonym with "dark side" and that is just a really awful bit of writing

    Also I woulda heard about it already.

    Well, Third Strike's coming to modern consoles, SSF4:AE's due out soon, Capcom posted record profits recently. I just figured it was a matter of time before revisiting Darkstalkers eventually slid to the front of their queue.

    And besides, the personification of Death does sound plausible as a new Darkstalkers character.

    The strip implies that that Death is the death from before they toned down the design.

    Anubis carried one. Maybe in this context it's afterlife.

    Or could be one of those "Now, LIVE! Now, DIE AGAIN!" things. A personified Death who can only kill you once wouldn't have as much fun as one who can repeatedly kill.

    Not like, weapons made of bones. But entire skeletons.

    The picture of death in the comic is the gift that keeps on giving.

    Black roses around the scythe
    Black nail polish on his right hand
    DEATH written on his shoulder

    I thought the first Darksiders was really good, actually. Sure it was very Zelda-esque, but I think it's easily the best Zelda-esque thing to be put out on a non-nintendo console

    yeah it was pretty good

    I felt like the controls for something were more complicated than they needed to be for some things.

    And that the difficulty on the boss fights was a little unbalanced, in that the most difficult boss was the first one you fought, and things got easier the further you went.

    The camera for horse riding was also a little wonky.

    Dodge was always easier and more effective than trying to counter-parry as well, which seemed kinda silly.

    I used to watch a roommate of mine play this.

    He is notoriously bad at any video game that involves actual action ....

    i.e. Alan Wake, Halo, Fallout 3, Darksiders, Wolfenstein, Call of Duty, (the list goes on)

    Whenever I would need a good laugh, I would pop open the first of many beers and watch him die, tear his hair out at the simplest of puzzles and generally make me feel much better at any of my failed attempts at video gaming.

    I could have an off day, but I wasn't that bad.

    And, if I may, Darksiders was ok, but it suffered from a terrible affliction known as pandering-to-angsty-teenage-boys. Mechanically, it only needed a tweak or two to make it a really great platform and puzzle titan. Thematically, it reminded me of why some people shouldn't be allowed to write.
