    I'd like a Darksiders 3 a lot more than another remake.

    Eh, the Wii U kinda needed this one so it would have the complete set. If the system was doing better than it is now, I'd say for those who have Mass Effect 3 on it that it needs 1 and 2 as well. Buuuuuut, it's all but dead, so... With that in mind, while it's cool that they're doing a port to it (and in 1080p), I wonder at the same time why they're bothering, besides the "have the complete set" thing.

    I thought there are only two entries in the series so far?

    I remember playing the original Darksiders demo on my XB360 but I didn't really like it much. I'm not saying the game wasn't well made because it was in 2010 but it just didn't have that appeal that God of War or Devil May Cry has.

    :unsure:
    I am not going to lie, I never played theses, I just really really hate seeing remakes instead of new games. So I searched it up and found a review score for DS3 and was like, "Yup! Has to have been released! Gotta change my post to reflect this new information."
    But doing more research is just confusing me. So I am just staring at this game like, "What do?"

    I'm confused. If I'm playing the current release of Darksiders in 1080p on my PC, what exactly is the difference from "an internal resolution of 1080p"

    Most likely the game is just being upscaled at that point, not actually rendering at 1080p.

    Did this have DLC and will it come with this? I played Darksiders 2 a little, and like it, so I'll pick this up. They probably doing this to get money for their next game.

    I sincerely doubt that's the case on PC - it would be counter-productive. Internal resolution typically applies to consoles, PC's don't need to scale to the monitor, they can just render at a given resolution.

    Well, a wii u port? Interesting. They locked it at 30fps tho- at least i hope it's not very laggy

    This game didn't have any DLC.
    I really liked it, probably more than 2. Not sure I'd buy this though I already finished it on 360 and PS3. Hopefully these re-releases lead to Darksiders 3 with Strife and Fury.

    Agreed. I just finished Dark Siders 1 in early march and plan to get Dark Siders 2 for PS4 sometime soon. But I would rather see a 3rd one myself.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Good. Now I am able to get my first, 2nd and soon 3rd (in develop for PS4) games soon. :D I wish God of War 1 and 2 versions would be remake for a PS4 because God of War 3 remastered already release for PS4.

    God of War Ascension Remastered still in development. Don't know yet.

    Maybe it is just me but I would rather a WiiU port that is 720 and runs 60FPS. Oh well, and of course the details will be ultra low.

    The new one gives them more money than if you play the one you already have.
