I don't know if any of you are gamers, but when I went to our Gamestop around here one of the people that work there is obsessed with Darksiders. I think it looks mediocre and it doesn't catch my attention at all. Every time I go there and he's working he tries to make me preorder the second one. When he described it to me he claimed it had the best story,gameplay etc. He also said it was like a mix of God of War and Zelda "If it were awesome" I always had fun with most Zelda games...not so much on a couple, but s***. Really? I hate the super huge bulky character designs and crap. I think it's so lame. It just isn't cool to me T_T
At first I glossed over this and read it as "Darkstalkers" and I was like "No, it really is awesome!"
But yeah, with regard to Darksiders; it doesn't look that impressive to me either. Maybe see if you can get your hands on the first one(seems Gamefly has it). Couldn't hurt to give it a shot, as long as you don't sink a bunch of money in it.
Maybe the Gamestop guy somehow gets a commission on preoders. Tell him no means no!
Yeah, Darkstalkers is pretty good. I've seen my brother play Darksiders and he actually didn't even care for it much. My brother has also liked some games I hated so if even he doesn't like it...can't be too great.
