vigil studios just sreams out sony and ubisofts name to me. in my mind one of those two publishers should have snatched them up. wasnt sony santa monica interested in their employees ? im also wondering since the publisher and studio are offically gone will this game get re printed ?

It's too late. Vigil is dead.

I worry that if no one picks up the franchise, then copies will become scarce, and I still need to buy the second one. I wouldn't want to risk waiting for the price to drop to bargain levels.

That's exactly what I'm saying. The first game ended in a cliffhanger. I've not played the 2nd game but know enough about it to know that it happens concurrently with the first. Personally I'm not a fan of watching TV shows that get cancelled after the season cliffhanger and similarly I'm not going to pay $25 for a game series that has no conclusion.

Spoiler

If Mass Effect 3 was cancelled and EA said they'd never make it, how many people would go and play ME1 and ME2 now for $25 each? People may compare the series to Zelda but unlike Zelda it isn't a self contained story.


I also thought it was a cliffhanger but it really isnt. Its a prelude to what was going to be the other games. I heard rumor that they were wanting to make a third game with Co-op featuring the other 2 Horsemen, Fury and Strife. But that isnt going to happen now. :(
SPOILER ALERT!

I am about to finish Darksiders from PS+, loving this game, aside from few annoying puzzles that is not a exercise of the mind but solely based on trial and error. I assume II has made further improvements.


The game is cool until they make you do this long fetch quest through areas you already beat, then it drags on. Is that where you are?

I saw this sale at the BB on Los Feliz blvd in CA but they only had xbox version. They were in a stack across from the gamer checkout area. YMMV

Aside from the death of the original Devil May Cry series, the probable cancellation of any future Darksider games is disappointing. If it's dead, let it die. Don't let another company pick it up and make it into something gay, as was the case with DmC. Seems like when other developers pick up the rights to a game franchise they end up royally screwing it up and deviating too far from the originals. Happened to Crackdown 2, DmC, Far Cry 2, and quite a few others.

Eh....That one was basically staying extremely close to the original in terms of practically everything. Which reviewers despised. Cause fixing something that isn't broke is apparently a bad thing to them or something.

Though I can get not wanting to start up on a story potentially doomed to remain unfinished, the game really is quite good. Sticks to the gated design that people like about Zelda and pushes the combat/combos further than DS1 did. The art's great and Jesper Kyd killed it with the soundtrack. Really cool work.

That said, I did end up trading in my 360 copy to BB not long ago. Amazon had a pretty great package deal for DS1 and DS2 on PC, as well as the season pass and DLC for the latter. Either way, it's worth playing.


For somebody who "makes video games", you sure do spread some incorrect information about them.


Oh no, not my net cred! The game design hive mind will be most upset with me.

I wasn't trying to derail, I just wanted to make sure everyone knew the situation with the game before buying it so they could make a more educated decision. Personally, I don't think it's worth picking up until it hits $10. After the THQ IP auction in a few weeks (date is TBD), if the IP sells then maybe I'd pay more than $10. Until the auction or if it's unsold at auction then forget it.


What does this have to do with the game value? It is more likely to go OOP before it hits $10. Besides, the game is amazing for anyone who craves a Zelda-esque gameplay but doesn't have a Wii.

I picked it up the game on Black Friday for $30 and it was definitely worth it then!

Did you even play DmC? The game is pretty solid compared to the originals. Besides, DMC needed a reboot as the catastrophe that was DMC 4 soiled its name.

Just because the main character had gotten a haircut doesn't make the game bad.

Completely agree. DmC wouldn't be necessary if DMC 4 wasn't such a bad game. As far I'm concerned, DmC is the most successful western developed Capcom original and definitely breathing new life to the series.

Tempting to own a soon-to-be piece of gaming history. I'm still shocked that no one put a single bid in for Vigil at the THQ auction. Square Enix could have picked up another Western development house for dirt cheap.

I hate it that Crytek didn't buy the IP. Darksiders is awesome, and now we will never get to see its conclusion.


Yeah it's a damn shame a lot of people are missing out on a great game. I really enjoyed Darksiders II.

Don't wanna further derail the topic. Would be stoked to track down one of those Death masks.


When I did a pre-order for Darksiders II for an in store pick up they screwed up and gave me this version by mistake. I was super tempted to sell it off, I mean who wouldn't be, but didn't. Now, with everything that has happened to THQ and all that they are probably going to wind up fairly rare and I'm really glad I didn't.

$9.99 is highly YMMV.
