Use this thread to discuss Darksiders free of spoilers. General questions and comments go here. Spoiler tag anything that might be iffy at all! I think some kind of war or four horsemen pun would be appropriate!

Is that Mark Hamill as the voice of the Watcher? If not, someone's doing an awfully good Joker impersonation!

He is indeed.

This game is painful, how did it get selected over all the others? Because it was free? Cmon guys... I gave this game an hour or two, just boring as can be

It's pretty well reviewed, sorry it's not your cup of tea toast

So before I even start this; as a hack and slash, how does it compare to games like ninja gaiden and devil may cry regarding difficulty and gameplay mechanics?

It's really easy, if you do all the collectibles in the first playthrough then you get armour which gradually heals you, makes the hard difficulty a cake walk. The mechanics are simple, although from what I remember the wall running and camera angles can occasionally lead to you jumping off to your death.

I think also if you collect the armor in the easy playthrough it transfers to your next playthrough at higher difficulty. Kinda a weird quirk but it works!

I will be streaming darksiders at 0700 EST on my channel beam.pro/spyshadow in case anyone wants to see the game mechanics and such before they decide to dive in to the game hunting for achievements.

I'm about 2-3 hours into the game, and so far, I like it. I haven't played it before, and really didn't know anything about it (only downloaded it because it was GwG... probably wouldn't have started it anytime soon if not for the playlist), so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I like the story so far and the gameplay has been fun. Pretty standard button-mashing combat (X, X, X, X... wash, rinse, and repeat), but it's felt solid so far, and I haven't had any problem with the platforming elements.

If I had to compare it to anything in terms of gameplay, it'd be Dante's Inferno, but these aren't the type of games I normally seek out, so my frame of reference is somewhat limited. This is the sort of game I might normally play while watching Netflix on my laptop, but in deference to the Playlist, I'm playing it so far with my full attention on the game. So far, so good!

I'm torn between playing the GwG title or going for the Xbox One improved edition?!? What do you guys all say?

I have to admit I'm in the same boat. While I can appreciate that somehow, for some reason, people like this game...

I can't quite put my finger on it, but the idea of playing this through to completion fills me with despair laugh I might have to put it down.

Lesson is already learned. No more recent GWG games up for vote laugh

I've had this in my backlog since way before GWG and never had a reason to play this, until now. GwG had nothing to do with it for me dance

I'm nitpicking again, but does that TA Playlist Darksiders picture represent the game? roll Was it somehow fetched automatically?
I don't play games very often. :( If you have a close GamerScore, add me! We'll compete. :)

Ridiculously, I bought this AND the sequel in not particularly cheap sales, back when I had a serious purchasing problem. So much regret.

It's an aesthetic issue for me. Gameplay is OK, even the plot is fine. It just looks and sounds incredibly dated, even factoring in its age.

I played this once and hated it! This gives me a reason to give it another chance. Everyone says it's like Zelda, but I didn't see it. I'll share my thoughts on it once I restart it

I'm really enjoying what I've played already even if I'm constantly getting stuck laugh
