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.


Yeah, there's a better chance of us seeing them in person than seeing the Four Horsemen in all 4 Darksiders installments.

I'm wondering if I should re-order this for $9.99 in case they decide to cancel my $5.50 "pre-order". Based on history, are they definitely going to fulfill the $5.50 orders when they begin shipping the $10 offerings?

Great game. One of the few titles I pre-ordered at Gamestop due to the comic/art book it came with. Huge Joe Mad fan. Also if not mentioned already used games can be shipped free to store.


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.


Preferably WB if it were to happen, that way we might get an animated series on Blu-Ray too.

pretty sure dev studios can be bought by other publishers :roll:

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.

DX I got a huge backlog already plus I'm thinking this will probably go the route of ff13 and be bundled free with the sequel in the coming months.

Most likely if this happens it will happen on THQ webpage. First one came w/ unannounced bonus, which turned out to be a free copy of Red Faction Guerilla from website (barcode had hole punched in it so you could not return to stores)

It's a hairy situation. If say, Sony closes closes Naughty Dog. They may or may not be able to go and use the studio name, intellectual properties etc. unless stipulated in contract. Hopefully the second does well and this contines. Thq has mostly just had a string of bad luck with homefront and red faction:Armageddon. Got some big titles coming that should produce.

Finished this recently on the PS3, one of the 10 best of this gen imo. If it weren't so fresh in my mind I'd pick it up and play it again on the 360 for the achievements. Someday.

Sort of like the situation with Activision and Respawn Entertainment (former owners of Infinity Ward)

Thanks, I just ordered a PS3 copy. I had been waiting for this to drop from the typical $20 average price.

That's true but THQ would have to sell it to another company and that will not happen. If the game flops, no company will buy them. If the game is a hit then they will not sell them since they need the revenue.

Had to resist this one. I just got rid of a bunch of games in my lowball, and I already have 3 games sitting here unopened since last week. Can we form some sort of group counseling? LOL

Since my $5.50 order from a couple weeks back seems perpetually backordered, I ordered a $9.99 copy for in-store pickup. Let's see if I get the email saying it's ready.

I might take a printout of the $5.50 copy to see if they'll price adjust. Anyone have experience getting this accomplished?

I had no idea people liked this game I rented it when it came out and thought it wasn't very good. As it just seemed as a game with a identity crysis since the core mechanics where just ripping off other games like Gow,Zelda, and even portal

I think all the recent previews of Darksiders II have piqued interest in the original. To be honest, I don't remember much advertisement for the first game so it slipped completely under my radar.

Already played and beat this, for $10 I'll add to my collection. I only hope it has the foil cover like the original release.

Where's my $5.50 copy?

I'm wondering that too , however I looked at my credit card statement and I noticed that best buy charged my card last week so I hope to see my copy in the mail soon.

I decided to play it on hard... don't.
From what I've read that's why I'm not enjoying it.
The hard mode just makes it annoying.

You would say it's more difficult than God of War III on hard?
