    Got a free steam key when I bought my 1090T. Should I get rid of it via ebay or actually play the game?

    E-Bay it, that game is better suited for 12 year olds who have the imagination of a horse.

    I'm just going to ebay it. I'll put all the profits to The Salvation Army as my annual donation to them :)

    The people who made the game are best suited entertaining people who understand a lack of imagination. It's like playing Spyro and God of War with the aesthetic values applied in WoW. Playing/controls aside when you consider the story's detail and depth it is even less appealing. Look at the early PS3 title Heavenly Sword. Boy... wow was that game ever a GoW clone, but it was prettier and it had presence. A presence severely lacking in Darksiders. I have to mention Heavenly Sword because it was such a blatant rip-off and not worth the money it originally cost at a heart stopping 59.99+tax. I'd put that game at a mere $10 worth of entertainment. Why? It was like watching a short "made for DVD(blu-ray)" movie. Darksiders has even less cinematic quality, and the air of the story is as serious as Brutal Legends without any reason to lack seriousness! There's no comedy... so why make a game with dry dialogue and dry quests? It is the most boring and unimaginative use of the apocalypse if the end of times had a dramatic cast. To put it simply Darksiders is as much of a popular AAA title as the next clear rip-off without any of the character development, cinematic air, or distinguishable genre of story telling. Hence lacking imagination.

    BTW how's the snow? :p
