Darksiders 1, 2, and now 3

Scarab Sages

I know it's a year off, but I've been replaying the Warmastered versions of 1 and 2 since the announcement of Darksiders 3. I'm really struck by how different a game 2 is from 1, despite sharing the same Legend of Zelda / God of War game play. The addition of the Diablo style loot system changes a lot, and not exactly for the better IMHO.


Playing 2 was a bit weird for me, too, after the comic and such established Death as being even tankier than War was. XD Ah, well. At least they're giving some variety with the playstyles... although I agree set gear would probably have been better.

Sovereign Court

War is a mighty glacier, Death is a fragile speedster.

Fury? Really? This doesn't exactly inspire dread like Pestilence or Famine...


"It's a good thing Death's d*** near invulnerable." -Strife, after War stabbed Death in the chest with Chaoseater and Death shrugged it off like it was nothing. (In the comic)

Like I said... a bit weird. XD


No kidding...


Eh, maybe War rolled a 1 or death rolled a 20


they need to change Fury's weapon, to a spiked chain or something

I'm curious how Strife will play, assuming we get Darksiders 4. Every horseman so far has been melee focused, though with different styles. Strife seems to be defined by the dual gun style of fighting, which I think can still be fun to play in a 3rd person perspective brawler game, but I'm interested to see how it gets implemented.

I hate the Fury and Strife names intensely!

Fury is suppose to be a mage(from what I've read on the game write up) so I hope she'll be less melee focused and much more into powerful spell casting. I doubt it though.

She needs to lose the high heels too.

I haven't read the comics.


I don't like Fury's overall appearance. She looks less heroic and much more villainous than the first two siblings.

The name does not fit, Strife fits more.

Death is pretty villainous looking. I mean, if you saw this picture over an Anti-Paladin or Death Cleric, you would not be surprised.

Sovereign Court

Should have called her conquest.
War is an a+&~$##, nothing heroic about him.


If it helps, Fury's apparently - despite the name - the calm and stable one of the group. XD War's more of the impetuous kid, and Death's the big brother.
