So who besides me went out and bought Darksiders this week? It's a game that definitely hasn't had much hype associated with it, and really hasn't had many marketing dollars put behind it, so I'm curious to see who read the reviews and decided to give it a try. I got the game, and I must admit it's a blast. The first two hours are pretty slow, and hence it takes a while to really get into, but once it starts rolling it's hard to put down. I'm really interested to hear what everyone else thinks.
On a related note, I would absolutely love to win the huge Darksiders sword that Jim Sterling is giving away, but I don't think I would be able to think up anything better than what some others have so far. Oh well. For now I'll just have to dream about hanging that bad boy on my wall at work.
Without further ado, let's get to the weekend recaps shall we.
