It used to be your gaming experience ending when the credits rolled but nowadays, downloadable content is the norm. New content comes in a variety of forms from powerful weapons and armor to lengthy side missions that can extend your playing experience considerably.
This year’s nominations for BEST DLC are…
Contrary to popular opinion, voice acting can be an extremely stressful job, and painfully difficult to sustain a livelihood from. However, a handful of talented people make the job look (and sound) easy, and their extensive portfolios are a testament to their skills. This week, PS3 Attitude is paying tribute to five of our favourite voice actors, and taking a look at their established careers.
Darksiders II opens with Death charging up a frozen keep on Despair, his fearsome steed, hacking the few enemies brave enough to get in his way. The next stage sees him running up and across walls, clinging to pillars, shimmying at speed across hand holds and taking out ice skeletons with ferocious combos. A boss battle soon follows, which is surprisingly more intense than what you’d normally expect at this early stage.
With the upcoming release of Darksiders II, THQ has announced that players who have played the original Darksiders will be able to unlock two special items in the game; a piece of armor and a weapon.
No longer flying under the radar, developer, Vigil Games’ Darksiders series looks to make a splash this August with the release of Darksiders II. Having already done a tour with War, Darksiders II shifts focus onto his slightly more cantankerous horseman brother, Death.
See the angel of dark and light in action as he stems a tide of demons who’d like nothing better than to have at the flock of church goers cowering inside their doomed sanctuary.
Darksiders II has been delayed until August, two months longer than its originally planned June release. The announcement was made in a blog post on the official Darksiders II website.
A pair of videos have been released giving us greater insight into the choice of Death as the main protagonist in Darksiders II as well as Vigil Games’ outlook on the character.
Let the developers tell you what separates the angel of death from his horseman brother.
We’ve moved on from 2011, but what a fine year it was. It was a year packed with many highlights: Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Portal 2, Skyrim, L.A. Noire, Uncharted 3 and Batman: Arkham City, to name just a few.
We now turn our collective eyes towards the gems 2012 will bestow on us, and it looks set to be another fantastic year.
Over two articles, PS3 Attitude’s writers are each selecting their three most anticipated games of 2012. Staff writers Stefhutch20 and Ryanmoto3 will put their votes forward in part 1 and editors DolphGB, Majiesto and Seanoc will follow up later with part 2.
So without further ado, here are the hottest PS3 games of 2012, selected by Team Attitude.
“WHAT STARTS WITH WAR, ENDS WITH DEATH.”
Early in 2010 THQ and Virgil Games released Darksiders. A game that was as refreshing as it was reminiscent of previous titles. To the surprise of no one a sequel is currently in development. Have a look at the premiere trailer for Darksiders II.
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Over the last ten weeks we’ve been revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and we think you’ll agree we’ve included some incredibly talented teams. We’ve now revealed ninety developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing the final ten!
THQ has announced that Darksiders will be getting a demo that will last 90-minutes!
Remember that mysterious redemption code that was included with new copies of Darksiders? We hope you kept it safe as THQ have finally revealed what it redeems and no, it’s not DLC for the game. In fact, part of it doesn’t have anything to do with Darksiders at all.
Owners will be able to use the code to score a free copy of Red Faction: Guerrilla. Yep, you’ll be able to receive a copy of the game minus the $39.99 price tag. That’s a pretty sweet extra if you ask us.
Darksiders comes out this week across North American and European territories and those of you who plan to pick up retail copies will find a little surprise included with their game, a mysterious redemption code for something special.
What exactly this code gets you is unknown for now but we should find out soon enough.
It looks like Darksiders is getting a bunch of different pre-order bonuses in the UK. Fans of PlayStation Home will definitely like the horseman costume, seeing as it’s epic looking.
In Vigil Games’ Darksiders: Wrath of War you embody probably the second coolest of the Four Horsemen – War. And, as we’re sure you’re now wondering, Death is officially the coolest Horseman of the despicable quartet simply because he’s completely inescapable. After War, it goes Famine and then Pestilence; purely because very few people can actually remember what the hell pestilence is.
Want to know what War looks like, presented in some super-huge screenshots? Thought you might.
