Darksiders III – DarkSoulsSiders (Jimpressions)


Darksiders used to be a damn good copy of Zelda. Now it’s a damn awful ripoff of Dark Souls. Yet another game that doesn’t understand why the Souls series is successful, THQ Nordic’s heartbreaking Darksiders III annoys and exasperates at every turn.

I never feel “Scaling” is needed for a game like this, especially one as linear as this game is. For those who don’t know, the mobs/monsters always scale to your level. The moment you kill a boss, everything scales up, and even though you’re supposed to be a Horsement, the embodiment… Read more »
