Cheats and Walkthroughs
THQ announced today that Vigil Games’ post-apocalyptic action-fantasy game Darksiders will be released on Jan. 5, 2010.
Now, post-apocalyptic settings have quickly become what World War II has been for gaming for years: fertile creative ground that has been endlessly mined by developers regardless of how many other games have done it already or are planning to do it in the future. Most of the time, though, these settings are all based around nuclear devastation, which is why I’m actually interested in seeing what Vigil can pull off with Darksiders, since the game is set 100 years after the biblical apocalypse. I don’t actually believe an event such as this will ever happen, but the idea of playing as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is pretty rad. I just hope the game can sustain such an intriguing idea.
Anyone particularly excited about Darksiders? Are you over post-apocalyptic settings yet, or are they like zombies in that they will always be entertaining and appreciated?
