that sound that the first serial of this game was soo damn good, !! is it horror two ? didn't know that, !

unfortunately there is no diablo in Steam, i would love to try the game tho !

Yes I can say that Diablo and Hellfire are horror games. They have scary level design and diabolic atmosphere, creepy creatures and demons.


and an automated mouse clicker lol
Haha true

This is a tricky answer.

The PC port of the original Darksiders has a huge amount of flaws. It crashed often, until the config file was altered slightly. The achievements only track if its the first time you've accessed the game on steam (if you crash, you need to restart Steam), the pacing is pretty broken, and there is no replay value. Overall, it's a decent adventure and platforming game if it is heavily flawed. If you can get it for $10 or less you won't be too disappointed.

Darksiders II is a completely different animal. They included a bunch of RPG elements, increased the length, but installed about a billion percent more traversal. It wasn't truly a sequel to the original, more like a reboot with the same continuity. The inclusion of DLC, and the price tag that only hits reasonable on a sale, and petty crap for the DLC, makes it a harder recommendation. If you get the mission DLC and game for around $20 then you shouldn't have much to complain about.

If you're going to get one of them, go for Darksiders II. The entire story of the first is covered in a cut scene at the end of the second, and you don't miss out on a lot. If you do buy II then skip out on the armor DLC. It's all worthless after you pass a certain level.


Darksiders is not a series that bears the horror trappings. If the main characters looked less like gorillas who fell into a pool of armor bits then it would be impossible to miss the sign of it being a bland Zelda rip-off. It's hard to say, but there's nothing here that other games don't do as well or better.

Then I will skip this game to be honest I would not break my head with it unless it goes really down cheap on sale. And thanks again for explanation I appreciated that

I have heard good things about Dark Souls, apparently Dark Souls 2 is about to come out. Has anyone played DS?
DS1

DS2

edit: http://kotaku.com/5874599/what-dark-souls-is-really-all-about/1476048242/@kirkhamilton

Sounds really difficult!
I have not try neither d1 or 2 or 3 and the got me interested but everyone saying that d1 is the best and better. The look of d3 look promising but not to some extent they always show the best part but hide the bad part. So actually depends.

As we cannot speak for you and only our self's. When D3 was released i actually put over 1200+ hours in to it and had a break for about a year ( till a few weeks ago ).. And when i started to play it again i could only play it for a short while mainly the game was a mess due to all the items on the floor and all the shit had no point or reason to drop so it became very cluttered. Well there was one thing you could do with it and that's sell it which would mean spending more time doing that than actually playing the dame game.

How ever since 2.x was released i have had more usable drops for my chars along with what drops can be sold or used for crafting even none magical drop have a reason in the game now along with the blue items were before it was just trash filling your screen.

Now you get about 1 to 3 items drop typically 1 unless it's a it's the leader of a elite group. I believe the goblin drops the most being about 8 items..

If i knew what i know now about the game i would play the 1st 2 acts and ask some one else to help to get me to a harder setting playing the same 2 acts. ( although i am not sure this is possible if you have no chars that completed it ).

Dude thanks for sharing Im also excited for that hopw they take it serious and do something really good
No problem. REsi games FTW!


Some fans working on RE2 remake, I found this video on youtube


Capcom said that they may remake RE2 if enough fans will support it. Whatever the case I want proper REsi 2 and 3 remakes!

That is so nice I hope they really take it serious. And make a lot of enhancement. Like as they show how to take the gun. It would be alot easier if they can make it like res 4. Or 6 lol I know this is very old but they should take their time doong stuff and see what really pwoplw suggest.


Lol while I was typing something came to my mind !!!! Are they un able to creat a resident evil to same lvl and higher level of the old one? And they are just working on the old one instead od making a new one which add lots more of survival and horror?

I expect new Resi game and updated Resi 2. RE2 had really cool design but RPD building could've been much better, it was a museum that later turned into police department. They should've add more staircases and there were no bathrooms. With proper level design and more darkness it could've been the most scary Resi game. Leon was kinda boring but Ada is cool

For me RE2 and 3 were the hell scary, then fear 1. Now that Dark Souls 2 have become more acclaimed and everyone wants to give it the try. My truly recommendation is play the DS1 and feel the frustration over and over again. Most console gamer says "yey!! Dark Souls 2!!!!!" without testing the hell of it in his 1st part. I beg to the gods to deliver the same dark ambient and dying frustration again for this not to become another shitty console game. Outlast IMO was thrilling !!!!

True, they're perfect. But REmake is even more creepier. Dogs jumping through the windows make me shit a brick every time.
that remake youre talking about is coming for pc too??? that will be great !!! im a fan of RE2 was the best of all residents IMO.

Another video showing remade Resi 2 with unreal engine...
This is why I often wish they'd do reboots instead of remakes, provided they're done well.

TR Anniversary = excellent example of reboot.

TR 2013 = horrible example of reboot.

Almost anything is better than a remake not worth playing though. If they can't manage to do a sufficient makeover, leave it alone, or do a reboot.

TR's Anni had some nice moments but it wasn't a good remake. It forced useless stuff like adrenaline dodge and quick time events. Making game extremely frustrating especially for psp and wii. PS2 version was full of fps drops and PC version had crazy camera. If it was done by Core then it'd have been a proper remake. Shame TRAE never happened. I will moan and groan about it whole my life.

Totally agree about TR 2013. It's horrible. Optional tombs ... like what the fuck. Tomb Raider game with optional tombs? You've gotta be kidding me...
TR 2013 is some kind of Max Payne or Gears of War but with some generic chick which they called Lara Croft. She didn't look/act like Lara. At all.


Some good examples:

Metal Gear Solid: the Twin Snakes = amazing remake
Resident Evil REmake = best Resi game ever
Rise of the Triad = kickass remake


bad examples:

Silent Hill remakes/reboots = sucks
Tomb Raider Anniversary = not a good remake but it had its moments
Tomb Raider 2013 = no comments .. wtf

Syndicate remake is somewhere in between but it's a nice game.

Deus ex Human Revolution: It looks like it sucks a big time. Can never beat The Conspiracy.



I hope those Resi fans can make a proper RE2 remake, they won't make FMV scenes though. They said it's gonna be free (or maybe not) but anyways I hope it's gonna be a scary game.

I bought outlast and whistleblower dlc a few days ago as they were marked down 66% iirc. I haven't gotten very far, I still have a few other games to beat first.
