Yes but it was released a year AFTER the pc version, ie ignored by 99% of console gamers because it was considered an old game thats from PC where spitspit there are no games. Pretty sure they had stats and stuff on how many people played it on the 360 or they wouldnt of felt the need to make lots of the second game a retelling of the first game to ease new players into it, as thats the reason they gave for why it was like that.

Well they still bothered releasing the two expansion packs between FEAR and FEAR 2 so it can't have sold to badly or they wouldn't have bothered. Besides I wouldn't exactly call FEAR 2 a retelling both FEAR 1 and FEAR 2 stories are wrapped up in FEAR 3.

I actually only played the first expansion pack and then ignored the series after that. Any profit is good profit, and thats what they'd get from a game already made. So releasing it on the system where gamers mostly play fps stuff was a normal move. Its a real shame more of them played 2 over 1.

The Perseus Mandate Files felt more like low budget expansion packs. I felt like the core development was on the main series. I remember when it came out and picking it up for 360.
You can even watch a little bit of the play through and see for yourself. Everything from the texture to objects ingame feel under par to the main series.

That's a lot of deals. Anyone who doesn't have Company of Heroes by now just hates good games, really. $3 for it all is ridiculously good.

I wouldn't call it snoresiders, maybe when GOWA releases. It has a few good things going for it.. characters, artstyle, music, and atmosphere. They may seem like much, but there are also a few things that make it a tad meh like it doesn't change creature types a lot, but that doesn't really matter so much because there are nice boss battles. And it feels like a darker Zelda title tbh.
Here is a screenshot I took of a place that I thought looked real coo from afar while riding on the horse.

That's his horse. The horse is dead from what I gather, so it appears and reappears on the fly by pushing both bumpers, but only on the world map. I realized a lot of the art like icons and such look like they were directly taken from Warcraft. Yet it has no relation, just the artist Joe Madureira who worked on the Uncanny X-Men comic book.


I read where the console version (mainly PS3) has some glitching, yet I have not experienced a single glitch with the PC version.

I hit a great many bugs during Darksiders II. Some were cosmetic, some could be worked around, and some halted my gameplay entirely. I got stuck inside of objects and walls more than once, I encountered a couple of system-freezing hard crashes, and I repeatedly faced issues where my quicksave and fast travel abilities disabled themselves during normal play, and I had to quit and restart to bring them back. I also encountered several larger issues.
