Darksiders: Warmastered Edition (Nintendo eShop on Wii U) – Available May 23
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition for Wii U, eh? Ha! You know something? I'm going to go ahead and buy that. I'm just compelled to throw money at these guys just for having the balls to not only finish this game, but actually releasing it on a deader-than-a-doornail system.
That's some fine gumption, you crazy developers/publisher!
Playing it undocked right now and it looks really good. Plays just as well. Very strange game and quite difficult with a great sense of overcoming the challenges it throws at you. Really reminds me of BIT.TRIP Runner on steroids.
