Darksiders Warmastered Edition is a free upgrade on PC

Admittedly, I just wanted to write a blurb about Darksiders Warmastered Edition's launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One to rekindle the life-affirming goof that is #darksiders2. Someone had to! But there's another, arguably better reaso...

The original Red Faction may be headed to PS4

THQ Nordic's recent announcement that Red Faction was removed from Germany's index of "damaging" games now makes a lot more sense. According to the European ratings group PEGI, the 2001 original will be releasing on PS4 via Sony's PS2 Class...

Gothic creator working on a science fantasy RPG

Piranha Bytes is known for Gothic and Risen, but it's stepping away from those series to create a new role-playing game, ELEX. That's "eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial." Got it? Me neither! We can't actually see the game until August,...

The Darksiders II remaster doesn't look all that different

Were we expecting the remaster of Darksiders II for current systems to look significantly better than the 2012 original (RIP THQ)? I was not. Crisper and smoother, sure, but that's about it. Here are some comparison screenshots that, at lea...

Closing in on four months later, we can finally confirm the February leak of a Darksiders 2 remake. Nordic Games announced a 1080p remaster for PS4 and Xbox One. It's cheekily named Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition, which is something...

#darksiders2: Darksiders II current gen remaster confirmed

I'm sure Darksiders 2 is a fine game if you've dry humped behind a Hot Topic counter after a date at Orange Julius, but my favorite thing about its existence is #darksiders2, which Occams blessed us with all those years ago. ...

Another de Blob isn't totally out of the question

Nordic Games has picked up yet another property from the defunct publisher THQ. This time, it's de Blob, a cute 3D puzzle-platformer about a blob who paints a drab city with its body. "We are excited about what the future holds for this pol...
