Two words: FUCK YES!
One of the best comics out there.
Two words: FUCK YES!
" I really didn't like The Darkness much at all. Aside from the story it really had nothing going for it. I'll give this one a try sometime, but I can only hope it improves upon the incredibly bland gameplay from the first. "I would really love to live in the same world as you, where games are so amazing that The Darkness' gameplay is so "incredibly bland" in comparison. But until then, I'll be stuck in reality.
" The first The Darkness was awesome. But holy fuck is Digital Extremes a bad choice. Dark Sector was horrendous! "As someone who played through the entire dark sector I really never understood all the disdain for that game. While it's not an amazing mind blowing triple a game its far from horrendous and had a few unique things about it.
I loved the first Darkness. Gameplay was fine. The story was well developed over the long run, and the whole creepy version of hell you go through is awesome. It's the story, the art, the plot, the characters, and the demonic powers that did it for me. Two things that didn't do it for me:
1: The demonic gun power that you got late game was a lazy cop out, compared to minions, tentacles, and a vortex.
2: My left side demon tentacle never got to eat any hearts! He always looked clean and sad whenever righty was devouring one. Sometimes righty even stole hearts from lefty! Why can't you just share with lefty dammit!
" “Yeah, call me biased, but this second installment of Jackie Estacado’s epic saga is--in my humble opinion--one of the most brutally cool games I’ve ever played,” co-creator of The Darkness comics Marc Silvestri said in a statement. “2K Games hammered this one out of the park.”
" Someone directly related to the product said it's amazing? It must be true! "
" I really didn't like The Darkness much at all. Aside from the story it really had nothing going for it. I'll give this one a try sometime, but I can only hope it improves upon the incredibly bland gameplay from the first. "I didn't like the first game either.
Love the first Darkness. I should replay that this year before this one comes out. I really wish Starbreeze was developing it, though. That said, Dark Sector wasn't really a bad game, and since this game obviously isn't going through the development hell that Dark Sector went through, I think Digital Extremes can pull it off.
I LOVED the first game. Its a different developer, I'm ok with that, even though I love Starbreeze. As long as the story is as gripping and awesome as the first game's story was. And its weird, the engine looks the same, even though Digital Extremes has their own engine.
PSYCHED! I'm worried about Digital Extremes being on the project, as they don't have the greatest of track records. Suffice it to say, the first game's overall gameplay was pretty stiff, but that's not why people played it. You played the first game because the story, narrative, and characterization were fucking PHENOMENAL, and the twist mid-game was goddamn brutal and emotionally charge.
Here's to hoping for a bomb-ass game.
