So I beat Darksiders this weekend, and I have to tell you all I seriously fell in love with this game. I'm not sure how it happened either. There's nothing about it that really blew me away, and it's in no way innovative, but it just completely captured and pulled me in. There were even times the game got on my last nerve, but that didn't stop me from absolutely adoring Darksiders. The very last scene of the game, I literally jumped out of my seat and cheered. Trust me when I say that NEVER HAPPENS! Oh how I can't wait for the sequel.
So my life has been really hectic lately, and hence I haven't had any time to dedicate to Destructoid. When's the last time anyone remembers me posting anything in the cblogs? Exactly, I don't anymore. Things at Gamer Limit
have gotten so busy that I'm spending the majority of my free time writing for them. We are pushing really hard to roll out video content for the site in the new year, and I'm one of the people trying to spear head that effort. Suffice to say it's not going to be cheap, and it's not going to be easy, but it will be worth it. Check out the site if you get a chance guys. There are some big changes coming!
Well I hope everyone had a good weekend. Let's get to the weekend recaps shall we ...
