I played 1 on PS3 and it was really terrific. If I knew there were no technical issues I'd buy 2 at $34 without hesitation.
I just tried out Darksiders 1 as well on PC and managed to get it working there is a lot of steps that were involed so not sure what the right fix was for me.
First step: If you use nviada go to the games profile and turn on threaded optimization(for dual/quad core pc's im guessing?) also turned on some AA and AF
Second Step: Right click on Darksiders.exe(what ever the real name is in the install path) and check the "Disable Scaling on high DPI" apparently this is the switch a lot say will help.
Third Step: Download this file http://www.mediafire.com/?zmmmmdjtjkd
Found in this thread on page 3(http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...1441279&page=3
) And move the files
Into the darksiders main folder and that is what helped enable and auto detect my wireless 360 controller.
After all of those steps the game now runs flawlessly without any lag for me and the controller works amazing(Couldn't imagine using the KB/M with this game honestly)So hope that helps get the game running up for you ^^
Also regarding Darksiders 2: Gaint Bomb did a quick look with the developers in this video. and they said the game was being ran on a PC, no idea how amazing the PC was, but good sign they are demo'ing the game on PC soo.

I actually beieve that if you weren't actively looking for it you wouldn't see it, however motion blur is a very YMMV type of thing for people. It's a psychical thing for most people. It really does affect people in different ways. The fact that some people can get motion sick while others see the same effect and don't is evidence enough. it's also worth mentioning that the type of monitor being used also affects people differently. I am viewing it on a Sony Bravia 120Hz LCD @ 720p via HDMI
Ya It must just be a case to case basis which is a shame as I really do want to play it, Even got the 5$ strategy guide offer the developers had awhile back ago when I rented the game...So if worst comes to worst and they don't remove the awful DRM i'll end up just buying it cheap on Steam and look at is a rental. As on the PC I can turn off the motion blur to help my poor eyes
But ya if the motion blur doesn't bother you I support WoS on this and Motoki the game from what I played in the first 5-6 hours is really great. And their is a ton of options and a really in depth crafting system in the game as well. Plus you get to fight Monkeys and Rhino's
