Continuing our video collection feature known as the Video Blitz, we bring you today all of the necessary official media to paint your final picture of THQ and Vigil Games’ Darksiders!

Like many games before it, Darksiders plays out in an unintentionally post-apocalyptic Earth. Unlike most games before it, you get to play as War, the Horsemen of lore that has been blamed for the pre-mature rapture. Combining gameplay elements from The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and God of War, you’ll hack and slash your way to progressively more badass weaponry and magic attacks as you cut a path through the massive demonic army that lies between you and your answers. Equipped with several traverse-gadgets, War will be able to enter into several multi-level dungeons and spelunk about for hidden treasures and secret areas. Joining War onΒ  his journey is his summon-able epic steed Ruin and an ethereal watcher, known creatively as The Watcher, who has been sent to guide War’s hand and keep him in check (and with Mark Hamil’s pipes, you know demented humor isn’t hard up to follow.) Sporting epic boss battles, scenic charred vistas, and a creative design influenced by famed comic-book artist Joe Madureira (Uncanny X-Men,) there is little keeping any adrenaline-junkie or biblical Laurette from welcoming this End of the World.

  1. I gotta say that I like the concept. But I just bought some rare PS2 games so I’m low on cash. I might buy it later in the month, though, after I get my next week’s paycheck.

  2. I had Darksiders and Bayonetta in my hand today and decided to go with Darksiders…..Hopefully I made the right choice.

    1. I pre-ordered both… and Bayonetta was the one that arrived today… so thats the one I’ll be playing tomorrow morning πŸ˜‰

      But I think both are gonna be amazing games… don’t think either will be a disappointment – just glad they both came out for my console of choice: The PS3… would hate to play a game like bayonetta or darksiders using the xbox 360 controller…

      1. Hello Seluhir, and welcome to the site!

        This game looks incredibly sweet, but alas… so many games to play, so little time. Still working on my very first playthrough of DA:O and its gonna take me at least another couple of weeks to play through that game at least two more times.

        Nevertheless, I will definitely be adding this game to my ‘to-do’ list :)

        1. Thank you, glad to be here :)

          I’ve actually been currently working on and off with my wife on getting a site somewhat similar to what you guys have here going… so I’m always interested in finding new places to get info and ideas! πŸ˜‰

          I have DA:O… and honestly, it just doesn’t keep my attention for very long periods… I play it for an hour or so here and there.. and it just seems kinda generic to me. Its fun, its definitely a good game… but it doesn’t wow me.

          So I’m really glad to get Darksiders and Bayonetta… the two are so vastly different in style, yet both such incredible games that between the two no matter my mood there’s something fun to do.

  3. That is a lot of vids. I have to watch and read a few reviews to see what I would go with, but a rental for Beyonetta and Darksiders is not out of the question.

    I am more waiting for No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, satirical comedy from Suda is pure win.

  4. Looks freaking awesome. I’ll give it a chance even though I’m still bitter at Joe for never finishing his Battle Chasers comic. Somewhere stuck in time, there’s a young Nabeshin feeling his heart break as the comic book store owner tells him of the news of its cancellation.
