    Darksiders II

    http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...siders-ii.aspx
    THQ hinted at the sequel to Vigil Game’s breakout hit almost immediately after the success of the first title, but we knew little about Darksiders II until now.

    Fans of the first Darksiders are already familiar with Vigil’s fiction – the eternal war that rages between the forces of Heaven and Hell. With Darksiders II, Vigil looks to deliver a richer experience as players explore more dungeons, talk with a variety of NPCs, and experiment with a detailed loot system. The horseman War has been sidelined, so it’s up to his brother, Death, to travel through the world of the Abyss and attempt to restore humanity after its destruction during the Apocalypse.

    Subscribers should be receiving their issues after the first day of E3. After you finish reading our cover story, keep checking back with our Darksiders II hub throughout the month, since we'll have plenty of updates that delve deeper into the experience Vigil is crafting for Darksiders II.

    In addition to our 10-page cover story on Darksiders II, the July issue of Game Informer includes an in-depth first look at Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII-2, our hands-on impressions of Sony’s NGP hardware and its early games, and an extensive preview section featuring games like BioShock Infinite, Mass Effect 3, and Batman: Arkham City.

    Until you get a copy for yourself, drool over these images of our cover, drawn by comic book luminary Joe Madureira.

    PowerUpRewards! The usually have the covers as posters a month or so later. Ya my frothing demand for this game is on an astronomical level. The first one ripped off every great game in history, but was so fucking fun.

    I'm not crazy about playing as a ripped grim reaper with a heavy metal haircut, but this game still has me excited. All I hope for though is no Black Throne type area again (I'm balls at puzzles )

    Agreed. The only part of the game where I needed a guide outside of some collectibles.

    Metacritic of 83/100. Get it on the xb, they haven't fixed the screen tearing on the PS3 one. Even if you can't, yes its a must play. Think Zelda, but M rated

    Both. I am kind of surprised it is getting a sequel. It kind of flopped in sales due to the fact it so full of rip offs. They actually released a huge demo about 2 months after release (~1.5 hrs long) to spur sales, then they just dropped the price through the floor to break even on volume.

    First game was fun, buuuut not worth the 60$ price tag imo from how much it was just basically Legend of Zelda with a Horseman instead of Link. I liked the puzzles but I ended up selling the game to a friend.


    Also I fucking hated that spider boss.

    It sold 3.5 million copies last year, hardly a flop. Sequel was announced last year too. You continue to post wrong information.

    Oh fuck yes! Was waiting to hear about this.

    While it didn't sell like hotcakes at launch like most AAA titles, it did sell fairly well overtime. Was a bit underrated/sleeper hit I say.

    I'd be a little more excited about this game if I were blind. However, I did enjoy the previous installment and the "loot system" changes and whatnot sound interesting and a possible deviation from the whole Zelda-clone thing (probably towards more of a Metroidvania thing).

    Darksiders really flew under the radar and blew me away. I remember walking into the THQ conference room before its release, at GS conf. and seeing nothing but Darksiders all over the walls and I was curious but not interested. Then they said "Ok look, we only have 30 minutes and instead of simply explaining this game, we will show you the game and talk at the same time" and they rushed through a demo and we were all blown away.

    Here was a shot of one section of the wall. They had a "runner" type poster circling the room. About 10 feet high, all Darksiders. In hindsight I wish I could nab some of it haha.

    Here is a pic I snapped on one section.


    They, without a doubt, will be at this years conference, showing Darksiders 2, and I can't wait. Hurry the fuck up E3, and GS conf!
