I absolutely recommend Darksiders, especially at $15. I bought it — for $20 on Amazon — and beat it about a month ago. I thought it was a great game. If you like the Zelda games, then you'll be right at home with Darksiders, since it follows a similar formula, and Darksiders is structured in such a way that always keeps the game interesting (there's always new stuff to obtain and explore). The only part of the game that I've heard people complain about is the final quest, but I thought it was fine, since I opened up all the teleport locations, and by that time, you have a certain mode of transportation that helps — plus, I liked going back to the places earlier in the game where I needed an item that you only obtained later in the game. Also, the ending of Darksiders was fucking awesome; I can't wait for Darksiders 2.


Wow, not even my huge ever growing pulsating backlog can beat a glowing review like that. I'm in for Darksiders on 360 - thanks Razzuel and Cheapy.

In for Dante's Inferno. Loved the demo when I played it ages ago and I've been waiting for it to drop sub $20 in price. I would get Darksiders too, but just picked it up from Sam's Club for $17.xx! Awesome deals!

Going to resist this time, but damn if I'm not literally only getting my games now from these gamefly sales.

Is this their September sale? Or just a quickie?

That's only if someone already used the code that came with the game. I'm not sure they would send that code with the disk for a rental, so I think there is a decent chance you'll get an unused code when buying used from GameFly.

Does anyone have firsthand experience with this?


I rent from Gamefly all the time. They neever send the coce. Whenever I have bought a game from them, all the original materials are included.

Darksiders was never a bad game.
The fact that Bayonetta released practically together followed by Mass Effect 2's release just stole all its attention.

Thanks Cheapy. Picked up Gow3. Was holding out till it was $20 or less as I still have quite a backlog of games to play through. Nearly bought it when Gamestop had it on sale but this is at an even better price. Will wait on Alpha Protocol and the others as I'm not really interested in them. Good prices though. Thanks!

I'm gonna go broke. Not to mention the backlog a mile long. In for Mass Effect 2 and Darksiders Xbox 360. Sad that all the really good new games are coming out the next few months and yet I'm still buying with these sales. lol

ME2 WILL have the cerberus code.
Every game I bought from Gamefly had all the original codes.
For example, Gears of War 2 had the flashback code unopened.

In for Mass Effect 2. I like the reviews that say it's more action-y and less RPG-y.

I have ordered tons of games from Gamefly, and the only problem I ever had (besides slow shipping) was one of the manuals had a small amount of water damage. They replaced it with no hassle. Never had a disc with any visible wear and tear. All in all, I've had a very good experience.

Yes, just to update.
The Cerberus Code will expire on January 1, 2012.
That's a little more than a year.

Still can't decide on Alpha Protocol... and every time I can't decide, it shows up a week later even cheaper.. so yeah, I'll keep with that.

Own everything else, but I will also add my recommendation for Darksiders at that price. Excellent game if you are a fan of Zelda-ish things.

And ME2.. for anyone who has yet to play it, this is a fantastic price considering you should get the Cerberus code. My #1 game of the year pick.

Thanks for the heads up on these deals. I've been looking to get ME2 ever since Hastings screwed everyone over with their ME2 out of stock, and this is a better price with free shipping.

Ordering Darksiders. Oh and I've never had any issues with Gamefly when buying used PS3 games from them. As others have said, everything appears to be new except for the fact it is not shrink wrapped.

I bought DAO from them this July and it came with the Shale and Blood armor codes. Both said that their expiration was April 31 2010, but they both worked when I entered them in July, so no worries.

Why not? If it was the story component, then you won't like this one. If it was the combat, you may like this one. It's basically gears of war combat.

No, the story was fine. Maybe it's because I don't play a lot of RPGs, but I felt completely lost. I got only as far as when you first leave the Citadel. Had no idea where to go, or what to do, tried a few planets at random, got slaughtered over and over again, and put the game aside. I was also very confused by the weapon leveling-up/inventory system.

I felt the exact same way about the first one. I got bored quickly and didn't finish it. However, I absolutely love the second one and beat it within a week. It's one of the best games of the year and that's a good price. You should give it a try.

See, now you've got me real close to spending $17.99 and keeping Assassin's Creed 2 in my backlog for just a little longer....

Hmmm Darksiders, or GoW3?

Time to finally play that Darksiders demo and see what I think!

ME2 is pretty good (though I liked the first a lot better) but I absolutely loved Assassin's Creed 2 (and I really disliked the first one). IMO, AC2 should be at the top of your backlog stack. That's my favorite game I've played in a while, along with Batman:AA.

You'll probably like ME2 better than the first if lack of direction was your main problem with it. This one has a much narrower scope and more limited options, both in things to do and in levels/inventory. For me it lost a lot of the fun RPG-ish stuff that I enjoyed in the first, but for someone that's not too into RPGs it's a lot more streamlined and approachable. It's a quality game, despite me personally being a little disappointed by it, and $18 with the Cerberus code is a good deal.

Ugh, GoW3 is calling but with a backlog a mile long I'm not sure I can pull the trigger on this one.

Also have to pub Darksiders - It was some of the most fun I've had with a single player game. The Stygian fight was awesome.

ME2 was far better in telling you where you need to go, the map shows you where to go for all available quests and there is no inventory system, only a weapon loadout system -- which you never really need to change since it auto upgrades you to the best weapons available at the time. The only weapon I changed out frequently was the heavy weapon selection.

I liked ME1, but ME2 made the best user interface decisions i've ever seen in a sequel.
