I feel like THQ Nordic is sending Darksiders 3 out to die. Almost no marketing, only 1 gameplay video that looked really bad, no presence at E3 2018 nor any new gameplay video, and now they're asking for pre-orders of a game of which almost nothing has been shown. Hard to feel confident this will turn out any good if even the publisher doesn't have confidence in it.

It's not a triple-A Überhype game though. If they start their marketing a couple months before release and try to get people to pick it up more or less spontaniously then I think it could work out. There aren't many classic fantasy action-adventures anymore. I for one will definitely buy it.

THQ seem to know what they're doing with these franchises. they seem to go for the "release quick remaster > gauge interest > release sequel with a fitting budget" and then move onto the next thing. seems to be working out for them so far. this won't have the budget or be looking for the sales of god of war so i'm sure it'll do ok.

I understand it's not a AAA game or on the level of God of War (2018). But from everything showed in the first - and only - gameplay video, it seems to be even less ambitious and solid than the first 2 games.

I get THQ Nordic's strategy, though I hate not knowing much of a game mere months away. Specially when I've seen a lot more of many games 2-3 years from release, which is also bad, but at least you know what those games are.

I say this as I'm in the minority that actually enjoyed the Darksiders games - Darksiders 1 more than Darksiders 2, because the loot system in Darksiders 2 was very bloated and overwhelming. I remember having to manage all the loot I got every 10-20 minutes, which gets annoying in a 40 hours game.

Still, I hope Darksiders 3 is a very good game and that it sells very well, I actually want to see a Darksiders 4 and hopefully a Darksiders 5 in the future. Which if Darksiders 3 fails both critically and commercially, I don't believe anyone will bother with the franchise anymore.

I'm not sure they'll do ok with this game. I didn't even remember that it was once anounced. And think most people don't remember that this game was still in development.
That’s what marketing is for. They have 5 months to remind people.

About the game


What's up?

    jmd749 @MrWhite: They don't, once calibrated correctly. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I've heard OLED crushes black levels too much, so much that mid tone details get lost. (8 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: OLED is king for watching movies, and especially if you sit off-center (22 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (1 Day ago)
