Tags: Darksiders II Review
Our own Romudeth has just completed a review of Darksiders 2 for STFUandPlay.com here is a taste.
Humanity is no more. Wiped out by a prematurely initiated Armageddon, the only salvation for Mankind lies with the Grim Reaper himself: Death. The Pale Rider’s fellow Horseman, War has been accused of this crime and if Death can resurrect Mankind, then perhaps his brother’s innocence will be recognized by both Heaven and Hell. This is the ambitious set up for the equally ambitious game, Darksiders II. The original Darksiders was a buffet table of various video game genres that were all distilled into one incredibly cohesive and enjoyable experience but Darksiders II takes what was already in place and adds even more variety into the mix.
That’s right, the guitar virtuoso who is not of this Earth, Joe Satriani is going to be in a comic book!
The name of the book is Eternal descent and in it, Satriani will have “limitless knowledge and incredible power”. That makes sense to me. Joe is a god on the guitar so it’s fitting that he be some sort of omnipotent cosmic being in comics. The creator of the series is a big fan of hard rock & Metal and the series has had guest appearances by Static-X, God forbid and Gus. G. If Joe was going to be in any comic book besides Silver Surfer, this is the best book for it.
Check out some alternate covers for the comics (which themselves are inspired by the covers of Satriani albums) after the break.
Take two Japanese staples, Street fighter and Mechas and what do you get? A really crazy take on the bosses of SF that’s what.
Check out Deviantartist Boss logic’s unique version of these classic characters after the jump.
This is a piece called “Fighting Games Are Racist” by artist Sachin Teng . It’s an interesting and funny observation, especially when you think about were a lot of the classic fighting games came from.
I don’t really know what’s going on in this latest image of the Joker from the upcoming Batman: Arkham city game but I do know that it’s extremely disturbing. What’s that green stuff on the Joker’s mouth? Is was he eating some sort of radioactive soup? Is it blood just colored green? The world may never know. I guess we’ll just gaze upon the image and wonder about the possibilities…and be completely freaked out while doing so.
Batman: Arkham city will be released for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 18th.
The San Diego Comic con is in full swing which means that a ton of exclusive stuff will be dangled in our faces. We can look but we can’t touch. Initiate sadface. Anyway one of these exclusives is a poster for season 2 of the awesome The Walking Dead tv series that was done by the very talented Tim Bradstreet. You can really smell the death coming off of this creepy poster. Very awesome!
Thanks to IGN for posting this pretty cool picture of Gotham City’s most visible two-faced lawyer…Two-Face. There really isn’t much to say about this one. It’s Two-face and he looks mad!
Batman: Arkham City will be released for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 18th.
