New Darksiders trailer is all growly and stuff

6:40 PM on 07.01.2009 // Nick Chester

Nothing screams “epic” like characters will gravely voices, and this latest trailer for Vigil Games’ Darksiders has them in spades.

Everyone sounds like they smoke six packs a day or is getting over some ghastly cold or just think growling makes you sound scarier. Well, they’re right. All the characters in Darksiders are downright terrifying, even the potentially sexy chick with grey hair, because she’s all talking about stenches which -- right off the bat -- is a total turn-off.

But it works for Darksiders, which looks like it’s going to deliver a bunch of wild, third-person action when it hits stores on January 1. Yeah, the game’s publisher THQ was clever enough to release Darksiders -- which takes place post-apocalypse -- on the first day of the New Year. High five to that marketing decision, guys. If anything is going to get me to push through a hangover to get to GameStop, it's definitely killing demons and zombies with a big-ass sword. While riding a horse.

Don’t forget that we’re giving away some fancy cloth Darksiders maps, suitable for framing and/or cleaning up spills. That contest ends tomorrow, so get on over there and try to win one.

I spent all last night playing Day of Defeat: Source. If only Valve gave it even half the attention it did to TF2 or CS:S...

Toonami is running a poll right now at [url]www.toonami.com/poll[/url] where one of the questions is which show you'd want un-cancelled. Oh, Teen Titans is included? That's curious...

"The Ravagers dropped the giant insects and waited for them to evolve ... it's clear. This is their plan from the start" -EDF 4.1 scientist So dragons are evolved forms of ants, spiders and/or wasps ....... what?

Every time I hear "I don't understand why people like _____ game", I get annoyed. Of course you understand, if you've listened to what those people were saying. You just don't agree, and that's A-OK. I HATE Twilight, but I understand why people like it.

Just tried playing the first Bayonetta game... it was really bad. Honestly I don't understand why Platinum games are so well regarded. None of them are really worthwhile.

I doubt I'll use it much but I'm totally fine with a block/ignore feature. Everyone has a right to speak, but I don't think anyone has a right to be heard. If this place played country music I'd want a mute button, basically :p.

Mall haul today (plus I split a BEAUTIFUL Star Wars Slave I with my brother). Any thoughts on Haze? Wanted to play it back when it came out and I had no PS3. For a dollar you can't go wrong!

I'm not gonna lie, I don't feel "good" about the upcoming "ignore" feature. Maybe it's just me, but I don't like the idea that people can mute other people because they don't agree with them. Spammers and trolls, sure, but not regular community members.

Oh man. Those Next Gen transformations in Megadimension Neptunia are legit as fuck!

Wow, uh, after having a lovely time with Kirby Air Ride, I decided to try playing some melee, for old times sake... I pretty much disliked my whole time with it. More details in a comment if I get around to it.

The backend code on the site so fun to read. Going through some of Julio's old stuff: if($vars["fappers"]){ $fappoids = 0; $_xt_loop_name = "fappers"; $vars["fappers_cnt"] = count($vars["fappers"]); reset($vars["fappers"]);
