OXCGN’s Darksiders II Review
Death Comes Knocking
by David Faulk

Death. The big sleep. The final curtain call. The inevitable. The end.
This is how Darksiders 2 begins.
Darksiders 2 is the sequel to THQ and Vigil’s mildly successful game Darksiders, which was released in early 2010.
It takes place during the events of the first game, with the most powerful of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, Death, riding to clear the sullied name of his brother, War.
Instead of taking place solely on Earth, Darksiders 2 takes Death all around the outer realms, from Angelic Outposts to the Land of the Dead, and practically everywhere in between.

OXCGN’s Darksiders II Event
‘Death’ comes for us all
by Chris Fox

THQ were nice enough to invite me to their European headquarters to show off their new game last Monday.
The place: sweltering hot London.
The game: Darksiders II.
The food: really, really good burgers.
The question on the lips of everyone present was can Darksiders II take the enjoyable exploration and even more enjoyable combat to the next level for this sequel?
It was time to saddle up with the four horsemen and find out.

OXCGN’s Darksiders II extensive hands-on preview
This ain’t your ordinary Grim Reaper

I copped quite an barrage of negativity from gamers back in 2009 for my play on the words with my Darksiders Hands-On article, stating that it was the real “God Of War”.
Some got it and some didn’t and that’s fine, it still generated interest in the title and people moved on.
Now we find ourselves in 2012 and THQ Australia have once again invited OXCGN to get their hands stained with blood in Darksiders II.
Having to travel all the way to Darling Point, Sydney, I arrived late at my destination and found myself standing outside what looked like a castle, which was a fitting setting for Darksiders II.

The year has gotten off to a massive start with Insertcoins, and it’s only getting bigger with each publisher showcasing their 2012 line up.
Capcom have once again raided the Oxford Arts Factory, decking it out for their showcase of upcoming titles.
From Asura’s Wrath all the way to Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on the PlayStation Vita, there were enough games to tickle everyone’s fancy and I was lucky enough to check these games out and report back to you with my thoughts on most of the titles. (more…)

Everyone loves a bargain, no matter what the product, and gamers are no exception. But it’s no longer just about finding a game at a cheap price.
The trade-in system employed by major game retailers such as EB Games, JB Hi-Fi and GAME means consumers are continuously looking for loopholes in order to get a new release game for as cheap as possible. [ED: Even Amazon have entered the trade-in fold]
The most famous of these trade-in offers is, of course, JB Hi-Fi’s trade-3-get-1-free deal on new release titles. At first it might have sounded like a typical ploy entirely in the favour of the store to boost their lucrative second-hand game stocks, but savvy buyers soon found that by simply trading three games bought very cheaply elsewhere you’re actually getting the new release far below the shelf price.
Oh the woahs of a bargain hunter . . . . >
