We have no way of actually knowing, because Darksiders is a […]

  • Interview: Vigil boss David Adams on Darksiders

    Launching new IP in today’s gaming environment is one of the riskiest moves developers and publishers ever make.

Fortunately, though, well-considered assaults on the core market still work. Borderlands busted US […]

  • Darksiders – the first 20 mental minutes in video

    Hit the link for the first 20 minutes of Darksiders’ gameplay, featuring War, War’s chaos form, War kicking ten bells out of angels and demons, War fighting a massive boss and War just being generally War.

There’s also a clip there of Mark Hamill doing one of the voices. This merely […]

  • Darksiders video focuses on War’s awesome steed, Ruin

    The only thing a bad-ass demon slayer needs besides his massive sword, is an equally bad-ass horse – and that is just what War has in Darksiders. Ruin.
