don't know how to feel about this one. I am a fan of the first three, was waiting for next one ever since I saw Strife with guns. but I'm definitely not a fan of this genre.

I don't mean to be negative but, it looks like League of Legends, including graphics, and that's not a compliment..

I'm not interested if it doesn't have co op. I'm very interested if it does have online co op.

Much prefer this isometric RPG approach to what they were doing prior. Wasn't a fan of the previous darksiders games at all tbh. This should hopefully make it less of a tedious slog and more fast paced. I'll be keeping an eye on it either way.

    b0vril @toelessfoot: if you're playing on PC there are mods that get rid of the jaggies. (6 Hours ago)

    KORNdog So much detail is lost, in both geometeric detail and texture detail. Like. I guess it's a preference thing but I don't want my games looking vaseline smeared. (12 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog Pixel crawl isn't exactly nice looking, that's a given. But what the switch is doing is just blurring the entire image until it's no longer doing it. (12 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus @MrWhite: fair enough and more power to iy, but sayin' it looks better. end of. and ommiting everything... the images look worse overall, and that is in stills, a blatant lie. (1 Day ago)
