While almost everyone seems to be doing something ‘social’ this evening, do you know how I saw the new year in? Defeating Demons as the Apocalyptic Horseman, War, in the remastered version of the well-received Darksiders.

I’ve never finished any of the Darksiders series, and when THQ collapsed, it seemed like it was a dead IP, but now with the word that there’ll be a third instalment in the series, it seemed as good a time as any to give this one a go.

The combat seemed somewhat more sluggish than I remember, though it may just be part of that early-game learning curve. War’s sword seems to do little damage, but I know from memory he gets himself a scythe later on, so it might be a case of just sitting right to work out what’s next.

I’d be lying if I said I was ‘loving’ Darksiders. It just doesn’t seem to have the pull to keep coming back, which is quite possibly the reason why I haven’t finished any of them before.

We’ll see how this one pans out …
