Darksiders III Sounded Great. Pity It'll Never Happen.

The Darksiders series isn't really dead. Nordic games owns it, and will presumably do something with it. But the series as we knew it, developed by Vigil Games, may as well have died earlier this year when Vigil went off and joined Crytek and left Darksiders behind, where no major publisher on Earth wanted anything to… » 5/31/13 12:00am 5/31/13 12:00am

Darksiders Gets Bought By…Nordic Games? THQ's Other Games Sold Off Too

The auctions following the closure of former publisher THQ are over. Homeworld, for example, was bought by Gearbox Software—as we learned earlier today. That's not all, of course.

Darksiders II’s Death Sure Loves His Loot

Just when you think you know where this live-action short from Somewhat Awesome Films is going, it, uh, surprises you. Vigil Games added a deeper level of customization to Darksiders II and its central character apparently can't get enough of all the goodies he finds. Except for Resident Evil 6.

Hooray, Darksiders II's Janky PC Version Is Now Substantially Less Janky

Good news: true to their word, Vigil has issued the first update for the PC version of Darksiders II, addressing a number of problems players have had with that version of the game. Among the fixes: easier key-mapping, in-game crashes, and crucially, the broken v-sync, which resulted in unfixable screen-tearing for… » 8/30/12 11:00am 8/30/12 11:00am
