    Because muh RPG progression - loot and stats to show progress with every new shiny junk. Just select the weapon, see which one have more green UP-arrows and see how enemy HP bar go down faster.

    DS1 was ok but DS2 sucked because of this.

    Playing through the 2nd game on the hardest difficulty is such a fucking chore because of how little damage weapons do and the constant looting to find new weapons and armor. Neither game has good combat but the first one at least had combat go through much quicker

    I just can't stand the art style of these games. The characters have that overdesigned WRPG look. Plus, the demo I played on Xbox 360 was boring.

    Hope you like those Zelda-style frame jitters when you hit an enemy, because turning that shit off is never a setting.

    Really attentive to this. Both previous games were very good Zelda-like adventure games to me.

    There has been so little information about this that it's either fantastic and they know it or they are lazy as fuck and just don't care because they think it's guaranteed money from fans of the previous games. Hopefully the former.

    Looks almost the same as death's gameplay so far. Not that that's a bad thing, I just set difficulty to apocalyptic in 2 and it was enjoyable without being tedious. The parts of the games I like most are the music and amazingly cool bosses.
    Darksiders 1/2 don't come near my favorite games of all time, but this moment was definitely one of the most memorable of any game I've played.

    It was terrible. How'd you enjoy enemies with a shit ton of health & repeating combat?

    I thought it was pretty easy. I just became proficient with high damage combos.

    I nodded off twice while watching the 11 minute gameplay demo - hardly a ringing endorsement for an action game.

    Gameplay looks more chore than fun, graphics and progression look underwhelming and weapons weak and lacking impact.

    I want to like this.

    The first one was a nice mix of Zelda and God of War. The second got confused and tried to be prince of persia and borderlands or something instead.

    Here's hoping they realized that the series is about Zelda + God of War, not "mash up any two action games".

    Well, fuck. Just skipped through that gameplay trailer.

    Looks like they went with a Dark Souls + Metroid mashup for this one.

    As a fan of the series these games have never been amazing. I would say just good depending on who you're asking. 3 looks a lot better than the first trailer from ages ago but $60 good? Fuck no.

    I buy these games for the articles, for the art. Bit like the Castlevania Lord of Shadow games. There have been some memorable moments in each game. They should let you play as Strife though, as I only ever enjoyed bolting on Lara Croft's tits in the original Tomb Raider back in the day. Other than that I've never seen the point in playing as a girl.

    They missed an opportunity to make her a succubus, that would have been really fun.
