The reports that it's a mix of Zelda and God of War are spot on from what I've played so far. So if a game that has hack & slash fighting like GoW and dungeons with puzzles like Zelda sounds appealing to you, you'll probably like it.

Regarding Top Hat

I ran into him 4 separate times and "beat" him every time, but nothing came of it. Have you gotten anything from him or did you see him more than 4 times?

What exactly do you mean by "thanks" and what is the origin of that word?

Damn if this game isn't hard on Apocalyptic. I'm sort of regretting starting the game on that difficulty but I'm already a few hours into it.

Only once so far, but again I'm only about halfway through the game. Got nothing!

Do the difficulty trophies stack? I'm wondering if it is worth playing through on Apocalyptic or save that difficulty for after having beaten it a time or two on the lower difficulties.

Not sure about PS3 trophies, but the 360 achievements definitely do stack, so I would assume it's the same. I started out on Apocalyptic but quickly made a new game on a lower difficulty.

Also, from what I've read, if you collect all 10 pieces of the Abyssal Armor on one game save, you have it on any new games you start afterwards, so that should help considerably.

If this is true then I'll probably start over on easy and try and collect everything and then play through it again on the hardest difficulty level.

Does the armor make a big difference?

I was getting my ass whipped by some of the creatures in the first couple of hours so I'm assuming that if you get to carry over your armor it would help.

Re: Darksiders (PS3/360)...Bring on the Apocalypse!!

I am so incredibly f'in stuck

Spoiler:
Just redirected the beam to azreal and walked out the top. I get to a place with two spinning platforms in the middle that I have to use the "portal" gun on. I hit the first one with blue, and the wall to the right with orange. then I have no idea to transition to the other pillar. I have tried jumping through the portal and shooting the other pillar when it's lined up and nothing.

Spoiler:
I'm not sure which one this is, because there are three similar areas. I'll just give you a general tip and let me know if it works. You can shoot through one portal to open another.

For instance, you have one of the portals on the spinning platform and one on the wall. Watch the one on the wall and when you can see the other one on the 2nd platform shoot it. It will open a portal on the 2nd platform and close the first (make sure your first one was on the 1st spinning platform, 2nd was on wall). Now jump through the one on the wall when the spinning platform is facing the opposite side of the room.

I got through the first dungeon and beat Tiamat. The game definitely gets better once you hit that dungeon and get to the Zelda-esque parts.

Re: Darksiders (PS3/360)...Bring on the Apocalypse!!

Dammit, I'm stuck again

Spoiler:
Third beam in the black tower. I am in a room with a door and two crystals on either side to open that stays open for like less than 2 seconds. A spinning thing in the middle of the room hovering with a crystal and 2 voidwalker emblems on it. The beam shooting into it, and a slowdown box on one side of the room. I shoot the voidwalker at each of the 2 spots on the middle thing so that when i hit the crystal and it turns it shoots the beam at the closed door. The problem is getting that door open so the beam can get through to the eye on the other side. I have tried using the slowdown, but you can't hit the crystal and get to the slowdown quick enough before the middle thing turns back. I have tried hitting the middle crystal then opening the door quick, but the middle thing turns back too quickly. what am I doing wrong here?



Nevermind, I got it

Re: Darksiders (PS3/360)...Bring on the Apocalypse!!

Finished the game last night. Now to find the rest of the life/wrath shard pieces and the last artifact I missed somewhere, finish maxing out the two secondary weapons, ride the horse around aimlessly for a while, and then it's on to Apocalyptic difficulty!

I also found all the pieces of the Abyssal Armor. It definitely makes a very noticeable difference, and I hope it makes just as much of a difference on Apocalyptic.

I'm pretty sure I'll hit this one in the bargain bin. It sounds really cool. Maybe not "full-price cool" but cool nonetheless.

I'm enjoying the hell out of this game. Easily my current front-runner for 2010 GOTY.
