July? I thought The Darkness was scheduled for end of June?

hmm, the gameplay videos looked amazing and the game looks very promissing, but this trailer...hm, feels like its trying to appeal a bit to the heavymetal/goth crowd. pretty cheezy if you ask me... :/

"destroy...mutilate", whats up with that?

Well...you destroy things...and.. mutilate things too, so I guess that's what that's about!
I mean, hell, pwning a helicopter with a demon arm is pretty darn cool!

looks great. There's some really creepy imagery in this game, and the idea that hell is WW I for eternity is equally disturbing.
Commented on 2007-06-14 22:05:27
holy shit, this game is evil.........I LOVE IT. hehehehe

What don't you like about the graphics? In my opinion, it's one of the better looking games coming out. It just has such a good amount of polish.

lol, i mean sure it's a game where you destroy things, but then again, which one isn't?! (ok, maybe not singstar) That makes a pretty generic tag line no? At least i appreciate some subtlety!!

Dude, you eat the hearts of people you kill in order to level up. I dont think subtlety exists in this game. :P You should see the finishing move kills.

ok, i confess. it's just that i'm too embarrased to show this to my girlfiend! what i really meant is they should show subtlety in the trailer, so that i can convince her to give me the game :P

It looks like Starbreeze was given the opportunity 2 just have fun, and go all out with the violence. I for one can't wait 2 play this game!

It's dark, terrifying, silly and comical all in one title.
Commented on 2007-06-14 23:42:40
And it doesn't have Justin Hawkins in it :)

This games hot!!

It's always gonna be cheesy when someone tries too hard to sound "devilish" and evil. The "embrace the darkness" line is so over-acted it's just completely silly. Hopefully the game won't suffer too much from all that, as it seems to be rather trailer oriented stuff.

disagree 100%. i think patton makes for an awesome voice actor and really sounds quite sadistic, this is by no means a "silly" game.

pre-ordered, and im expecting one f the best FPS's this year. (not counting bioshock)

Yep, I agree. I didnt think it was overacted at all, there's a menacing quality to the voice, and it comes through well in the trailer.
Commented on 2007-06-15 05:48:34
I agree, this game can't come out soon enough! PS3 version is paid in full and I'm itching to embrace The Darkness.

Totally my point! But the game is going to be great i think (hope). It's just that Gamming is growing into such an interesting and huge entertainment form, and also art form that it hurts seing this kind of thing "destroy, mutilate" bla bla tag lines, on such an interesting product, which just makes it feel again something for lonely angst teenagers at their parents basement.
Anyway, enough of that.

Oh, and is that really mike patton? could just as well be any voice audio-manipulated. Is he going to narrate the game?

Mike Patton should get back in the studio and finish the new Lovage album.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog escaping is really tough though, took me a fair few tries, and isn't really worth the pay off. (31 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i think there's only 2. die and escape. (43 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Played Resident Evil 7 demo just now, finally on Xbox One now. I still miss a third person cam but they got the atmopshere nailed, really damn good. Has anyone here got all the endings? (1 Hour ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Wow noway i'll be buying CoD Remaster anytime soon, just over 200 people were playing it on PC in the last 24 hours :/ Rest of the maps are coming including Winter crash :( (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (3 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (5 Hours ago)
