    Opinions on Darksiders 3? I'm thinking of picking up the complete edition and going through the trilogy before Genesis comes out.
    I have enjoyed what I have played so far. Since it takes place at the same time if not a little before the other 2 games you really won't need to play through 1 & 2 to enjoy it. It's kinda more like Bloodborne than Dark Souls IMO lotta roll left whack roll right whack. Fury is such an awesome character too, like a female Kratos but more apathetic than angry and I enjoy her more than the others. Bottom line if you do not have much time and need to play one of the 3 before Genesis this is the one I recommend.

    Bonus: the music is by one of the fellas that did the God of War games and is amazing. rock

    Are the de blob games any good?
    I had a fun enough time playing through 2, but trying for the completion felt too tedious and unfun.
    I feel the same way. I have only played some of 2 on the 360 version, and while it is cute and charming and decently fun to play, the levels are so long that you really must spend the time to 100% them the first time through. I wouldn't want to return to any of them again to finish the things I'd missed.

    Anyone recommend angerforce for the price?

    I buy pretty much anything under $3 these days....and then promptly go back to playing Warframe and forgetting about my Mount Everest-sized backlog.

    Nothing for me. Some decent sales there but nothing I don't already have.

    Anyone played Initial Stage 2? It looks interesting enough. I know about the unobtainable achievement and am willing to look past it.

    Interesting, the general consensus in the DS community is that this game was a major step down, especially from DS2. I guess it kind of depends on how much you like the "souls-like" genre though. For most, it was a big departure from what made the franchise so good and alienated a lot of the games fans.

    They did redeem themselves a bit when the "Classic" play mode was introduced though. Made the game a bit more accessible and brought it more in line with how 1 & 2 play.

    It's not a bad game though, just didn't feel quite like a Darksiders game. Strangely, I also thought Fury was a totally boring character with a bland story arc, but to each their own!

    Personally, I would say DS2 is the best one to play if you only have time for one, though the original will be most like the gameplay style of Genesis (which is excellent from the demo I have played!). Play all 3 if you can though, because it is an excellent (and massively underrated) franchise toast

    But, if you hate loot based games and like Souls games, it could be a step up.

    It seems like every DS game has taken a different genre. Personally I dont think theyll ever top the "zelda for grownups" style of the original...

    Thanks for doing this, it must take a while to put together and is very helpful information.

    I see the Metacritic score is nothing to write home about, but does anyone here have experience with Rebel Cops? Seems like an interesting X-COM style game.
