OUCH. holy shit those numbers in the fiscal year. Saying it's five times the pre-orders may not mean much with those kind of numbers.

"Hey guys, remember how last year we only had 20 preorders? Guess what?! This year, we're up by FIVE TIMES as many!"

I wish them all the best, of course. I never played Darksiders, though >_>

Darksiders wasn't particularly good or particularly bad -- it was competent, and that's about it. Any "hype" for the sequel is manufactured.

The most notable thing about Darksiders is that it's one of the few games I can think of that suffered simply by having a story (as opposed to overly-long cutscenes, etc). They set you up as being one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, but then you spend most of the game on foot. So instead of enjoying the game for what it was, I kept wondering when I was finally going to get to ride my sweet-ass horse.

That sounds like a great foundation for a review of the game. I went looking for one on the site, but as far as I can tell, there isn't one.

Most people I've talked to that played Darksiders liked it a lot. So I'm not sure I would agree that hype was manufactured. At the same time, it's not like anyone loved it more than the game it most tried to clone, Zelda. So it's a competent adventure game with a dark tone that has potential to produce an improved sequel. I'm watching its progress with genuine interest.

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

What? Zelda? I've heard it's most like God of War.
