Is this the first in a game series or a sequel to some other game?

Just wondering if I pick it up if I'll be lost with the background story from a previous title.

Well it seems like that thread is just for in-store deals.

This is both I guess.

Won't bother me if this gets deleted or merged.

my stores didn't get any in-stock so online was the only option even though it's in their weekly ad.

This is the first in a series of four, the second is scheduled to come out June 29th but there is speculation that may get pushed back.

This is the first in the series. The next was to be released towards the end of June but one of the execs at THQ recently told the press that it may be delayed because they don't want to release it until it's "perfect". From the interviews I've seen of the second, the developers look pretty excited about it - in a genuine way. One claimed that there are 4 or 5 zones, each as big as the entire first game, random loot drops, towns, npcs, and other stuff they wanted in the first but didn't have time for. I never played either but got the first today as I've been thinking about buying it since I saw those interviews Bout the second one.

I don't think they believe they can afford to release a bad or buggy game because of the problems THQ is having.

When I checked earlier this game was OOS online, glad it's there (as of) now.

Thanks OP, picked up ps3 copy. My local ad said only 360 was $9.99 with PS3 at $19.99 so it was good to see it also on sale.

I wouldn't count on there being four... THQ is in pretty bad shape, and according to various sources, may not be around in the next year or so.

thq is only the publisher, not the dev. darksiders is developed by joe madureira's studio, Vigil games. if darksiders 2 is successful, it could easily be picked up by another publisher; likely wb or ea.

But I played this on 360 and its not that bad at all. Great game.

I recommend this game. It reminded me of a Ocarina of Time style game meets apocalypse.

Darksiders is above average game. It sort of rips off Legend of Zelda in some aspects.

There are some issues like the control scheme is pretty complex. Other than that, you could do worse.

Damn you xevious...

Damn you Xevious... damn you to hell.....

Damn you Xevious be quiet.

So you know EBM? Damn you Xevious...

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

That's what I was just thinking! I love how the copy I ordered for $5.50 is still on 'Backorder' but they seem to be selling them just fine for $9.99.

Wrong. Vigil is the development studio but THQ OWNS them. That's THQ's studio. THQ is in bad shape right now. They need Darksiders 2 to sell a lot to fund their operations through the holidays.
