DLC - The Harvester Weapon FREE

The Harvester | Code to unlock exclusive in-game weapon. This powerful weapon belongs to the rider of the pale horse. Its enormous, fearsome blade can cleave through flesh, bone, and even the ethereal demons of Hell. Though its jagged blade is deadly, the power locked within makes its master like unto a god. It can also cut through an aluminum can, and never needs sharpening. Note: The code for unlocking The Harvester is universal. Once you obtain the game, go into the in-game options and choose "Enter Code". Type in the code "The Hollow Lord". This code is space and case-sensitive. After that, the weapon will be available for sale from Vulgrim.

Anyone excited for this game? I cant wait till it comes out. Sadly I dont have too much $$ and my job aint going as smooth as I'd like it to be so I cant go buying games like I used to. Will buy probably end of Feb or cheap here.

Also I got a favor to ask CAGers. If you guys are preordering from Amazon(US), could I get your Home code? Im so pissed Im gonna be missing this cool Home avatar outfit thing. Im a huge Home fan but sadly I got other priorities to take care of. For the help, ill be giving out a GOD3 demo code/ModRacers code if Im helped, sorry to be begging :(

I'm definitely looking forward to this, but the only positive write-ups I've seen of it were in Play magazine...

I've already preordered from Best Buy through the Rewards Zone just so that I can get a hold of one of those 7" war figurines... Came out to ~$68 w/ tax and shipping, which kind of sucks, but oh well. The only other place that I believe has the figurine with the preorder is Game Crazy. Anyone else know a good, cheaper alternative for the figurine?

Well, that's pretty much the price to pay if you want the figurine. I was initially motivated to get the War figurine too, but it's a bit too much, i rather just play the game. Of course, i believe the figurine can fetch some good money on eBay.

I put down a $5 pre-order at Gamestop the other day after unloading some games(including 2 copies of Fairytale Fights lmao), as well as a $5 PO on God Of War 3.

Although I'll probably pay off the GOW3 PO and cancel the Darksiders one eventually, since I'm not about to pay MSRP for a game, unless it's with cheap credit from flipping.

It seems like a game in the same vein as God Of War, so why not just take a wait and see approach on this game or at least put $5-10 down on it, then wait for the reviews to come out for it to make your decision?

Personally, there's just too many games coming out that I either want or may consider buying this next coming year. Besides Darksiders, there's God Of War 3, Dante's Inferno, Bad Company 2, Just Cause 2, Red Dead Redemption, etc, etc, etc.

I'm going to take a wait and see approach on these games though, since I'm so used to paying $30 or under for most titles I want that it's just not worth it to spend MSRP on any one game anymore.

GameStop is advertising the Harvester as a pre-order exclusive. Glad to see it's not. I still want to pre-order it there since you get a lot of extras for no charge. And I have a $50 GS gift card.

I'm really looking forward to it.

yea but I heard GS aint giving bonus items anymore due to limited supply and has been depleted or something so those worried about the DLC can preorder away at other places such as Amazon,Gamecrazy.

DLC code is universal!!!

I just saw they changed it on the site. I'm gonna try pre-ordering at a store and getting there ASAP. They usually do things first come, first serve.

I am more excited about this than Bayonetta and AoT:40th Day, but early March is starting to look really heavy (Yakuza 3, Resonance of Fate and maybe FFXIII), so I may end up holding off so that I can get some of those titles on day one.

I went to GameStop and asked if they were offering any bonus. The guy said it was the comic and Harvester code. I pre-ordered it and he gave me the comic. It's a comic with some concept art. I'd normally wait for a sale but I have a $50 GS gift card to use. Last year I got $200 and spent almost $160 of it on a DSi bundle a month ago.

I pre-ordered from my local Gamestop last night and the guy handed me the graphic novel. It's pretty cool.

Now I am debating on whether I should cancel my pre-order or not. The game looks really good but I have a substantial backlog already and not as much time to play games as I'd like.

I didn't get shit when I pre-ordered this game last week(put the usual $5 down on it), so i guess I'm going to go to the GS I did the PO at and ask where the graphic novel bonus is for my PO.

If they say they have no more, then I cancel, which I was gonna do anyway since this is a GOW clone and only worth about $25 to me.

I'll wait till there's a used copy and it has dropped to $25, which shouldn't take long with the glut of games due out.

You're thinking of Dante's Inferno.

Yea this game is no GOW clone. Its more of a mix of GOW+DMC with sweet Zelda stuff.

Dante's Inferno is a straight GOW clone. The devs just took all the ideas from GOW and changed textures. Does not deserve to get sales in my book.

CheapestG, lol, agree with icedrake, you're thinking about Dante's Inferno :)

Darksider has Zelda elements in it, so it's if you're a Zelda fan, this title can't go wrong. I doubt this title will be $25 within the first few months. I simply dig the characters in this game, good art works! Damn, they should have a LE or something, with art book...
