Probably my most anticipated titles this year.

Love everything about it and looks alot better than the first one.
Death is way faster to move and combat is really fast as well, setting is only fantasy in another realm and not earth-mixed like the first one (meh) and its very colorful now.

I am also liking that they have added light RPG with loot and outfit customization and talking to more NPCs.

Can't wait!

To be honest I didn't care much for what was shown since I really want to just hear more of Death's voice. Something was truly epic about Wars gruff manner, and whilst the four or so words that I've heard from Death provide some reprieve as its icy coolness has its quality, it's not enough to satisfy.

A great game, can't wait for part 2. Definately on of the games I am getting as it comes out.

Wait, they better explain why Death can die in the game, surely there must be a story explanation if that's possible? Will Death become mortal to die? Will it be like the Prey death system?

Darksiders 2, you got some 'splaining to do! ;)

About the game


What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido That's actually funny. Zapkowski said that the games aren't canon in his view, but i guess CDPR decieds what's canon and not if they own the IP. Hahaha. (6 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts made, he wouldn't get a penny. Nor have artistic rights to how they should or should not be used. It was a really, really bad deal for him. (7 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: That's true as well. He obviously did a bad job with selling. Also, if I'm not mistaken, CD Projekt RED has the full rights to The Witcher IP, meaning that if any movies or TV show is ever (8 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Also, he wouldn't be whining if he didn't sell his friggin IP instead of taking a cut. (12 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: He wrote the first witcher stories in the 80s mang, and the main witcher saga in the 90's. Before the games nobody knew, now The Witcher is a huge global thing. I think it was a win for him. (14 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts *Into the Badlands (48 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts For those who want action and great fights, I really recommend "Int the Badlands" on AMC. The fights' coreography are amazing and the story is good enough to keep the action going. (49 minutes ago)
