Darksiders Updates

I've had the chance to play Darksiders and I'm really enjoying it so far. The graphics are really sharp and the gameplay is a lot of fun. I hope it does well for Vigil Games first release and that they'll be working on a sequel ASAP.

There has been plentiful news on Darksiders today after it's release yesterday... here's the rundown:

First it sounds as though Hollywood is interested in bringing Darksiders to theaters as Joe Madureira told VG247,"We've gotten some interest from Hollywood, we've talked about doing a comic series." and Joe added "It's really a THQ thing, but I know they are definitely talking to people and I would be surprised if some of that stuff didn't happen." The movie interest is a no brainer, it usually comes with every major video game release. I would love to see a comic series if Joe Madureira would be the artist behind it.

Second, Eurogamer had an hour long fan Question and Answer with Joe Madureira where he talked about his career and even about Battle Chasers.
"Question: I know you probably hear this a lot but what on earth happened with Battle Chasers? It was such an awesome comic, that just seemed to fizzle out. Any plans to finish the story of Gully and Co off?

Super Moderating Hero: I would love to some day. I am amazed how many people ask me this. It's somehow managed to live in people's minds all these years. I feel like I HAVE to finish it some day.

Super Moderating Hero: In a videogame perhaps?

Joe Madureira: That would be amazing. But I'm so possessive of it, I would demand it be done by Vigil. And we have too much on our plate these days to take on another project. So we'll see!"


Third, it seems there won't be any Downloadable Content for Darksiders as Joe mentions in his Q&A, "Sorry, we aren't currently planning any DLC content for Darksiders." But over on the Darksiders Official site they have a 'Mysterious Redemption Code' but it won't be unveiled until later in the month. Could it be a weapon download?

I think that is all for now, I'll try and keep you updated on any other exciting news. Enjoy Darksiders!
