Hard to really say , a fair smattering of puzzle elements , difficulty similar to Gods of War / end of level bosses around the difficulty of the easier Dark souls II/ III bosses

Anyone got any experience of the difficulty of the game? I'm not exactly blessed with gaming ability so can only play what others would consider a breeze.

Just bought it, went absolutely fine. Automated phone call with a 4 digit code is all that was required. Something also to note, you get a copy of the original Darksiders as well as the Warmastered edition, which is pretty neat.

Imagine going to a store to buy a mirror then when you get it home and take it out of the box it doesnt show anything, then calling the store and hearing "oh you wanted to use the product you bought? I'm sorry you didn't buy reflection insurance so I can't help you with the product you bought from me because you didn't pay extra".That's G2A's business model. I later found out the reason why so many keys get reclaimed when they don't work is because the store facilitates the selling of stolen keys, which are often reclaimed months after purchase and then your games go missing from steam/uplay/origin libraries. In addition I have known people who had no actual protection when they did pay for the insurance scam they offer, and the people I do know who shop there say to not bother with paying for the insurance as they never got any help anyway, they usually just saw G2A as a key rental service until the games were reclaimed anyway because they usually just completed the game in a week and then didn't touch them after than. Personally I'm a fan of owning things if that's how the service is advertised (inb4 "but you don't own games on steam anyway")


Strange, I have never experienced anything like that in the past from the many years of buying game keys.

In Vr this game becomes so much more, really, i bought this way back in 2013 on a steam sale, never touched it, then they add VR support so i grudgingly gave it a go, i mean really, who wants to drive a truck in VR, and BANG, i am a truck driver hammering down the UK motorways to catch the Chunnel over to Paris and then head up to Amersterdam to drop of three forklift trucks, and all the while i listen to live stream of the radio via the games radio, or you own music via the games in-game music support, just drop your music into the games music folder and pick what you want in game.

Fantastic game in VR, only downside is my consumption of yorkies has risen dramatically, oh and it's not for girls...(if you get that reference i will be pleased).

Is that for the PC? Or are you referring to the PS4 version?


Ah, sorry, PS4!

Got this on the XBO in the recent deal with FC4 on the Microsoft store. I usually play on PC but shared this deal with my son.
I am really enjoying it despite using a controller - which I don’t like for FPSs.
Although I sometimes do yearn to get an assault rifle out for multiple kills as the pace is generally a bit slower.
It’s a really nice change for a first person shooter to use some (very) simple crafting and controlling animals to help attacks.

Also, the console manufacturers pretty much have a monopoly on game sales due to the closed ecosystem nature of their respective platforms. PC game sales on the other hand are extremely competitive as there are countless 'shops' competing for your business. In principle, digital game sales for consoles could be much cheaper, but I'm guessing Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo choose not to as they're too lucrative for them.

Honestly I don't even know why people take ratings so seriously. Personally I'd treat them as a guideline and if I had kids, I'd have no issue with them playing games rated higher than their age. I'd be more concerned over the impact chat capabilities would have on them more than the content that is supposedly inappropriate. I'm glad my parents were more open to me deciding what was appropriate to me, granted some things are less appropriate than they used to be like Mortal Kombat and GTA, but I could've missed out on some good games otherwise.

Don't be silly, if you have a ever recovered a Steam account you would know that nothing in your comment makes any sense. They would need full access to your PayPal account for them to do that (plus more) and the information you mentioned doesnt included that

If somebody that knew your email address asked for your phone number, then you got a call with a code and they asked you for it, you wouldn't worry that they had just used it to reset your password with 2 factor verification or something, and you are just giving them the verification code and doing the verification for them? I can't imagine something more risky and ill advised, whatever their actual intention. Don't do that.

Killing floor 2 is good fun, however I always go back to killing floor 1. Just feels much more entertaining plus the modded servers with better perks are excellent. I've probably put 200 hours into kf1 playing on the same 5 servers, it's that good. Plus it's cheap, or free? I've not checked.

How much of a leap over the 'first' one is this?


I completed and adored both. More mission variety in terms of level design and countdown missions mean more aggressive tactics needed than hunkering on some missions. Took over my life when had it. Bargain price

I'm only a little way in to playing it and I'm really impressed so far. The Xcom series has to be one of my favourites right from the very original UFO enemy unknown.

How much of a leap over the 'first' one is this?

This is a great price, however the DLC adds so much to the game so if you can I'd buy the deluxe edition plus the expansion War of the Chosen and play it like that, that's what I did recently and it was worth every penny. For £38 I got nearly 90 hours out of it, and after finishing it and seeing what all the DLC added I would have regretted not getting it.

I normally wait a while for games to drop in price and have a few bugs ironed out. I do get that there are some people that like it right away though. I guess I should have said that it may be best for people to wait a few months, get through their current backlog a bit and pick this up for mid 20s. My main point was the fact it'll be cheaper fairly soon, as some franchises historically drop quicker than others, and unless you want it right away it's better to hold off. You're right, could've worded it better though. Had a pants morning today.

The vast majority of the hype is around the time of the release - so people want to get into the game so they can enjoy it at the same time as everyone else. With your logic it's worth waiting to see the latest Star Wars film months after everyone else instead of paying for cinema tickets. Others may be streamers - anyone with an online following may wish to attract bigger crowds by streaming the latest games from day of release. Finally, whilst it seems a lot compared to the price you'll pay within a few months of release, you get a lot of game for £37 since it lasts 30+ hours even just completing the story and a few side missions.

I do get that there are some people that like it right away though. I guess I should have said that it may be best for people to wait a few months, get through their current backlog a bit and pick this up for mid 20s. My main point was the fact it'll be cheaper fairly soon, as some franchises historically drop quicker than others, and unless you want it right away it's better to hold off. You're right, could've worded it better though. Had a pants morning today.

I'm not sure an 'amazing' reason is required. The vast majority of the hype is around the time of the release - so people want to get into the game so they can enjoy it at the same time as everyone else. With your logic it's worth waiting to see the latest Star Wars film months after everyone else instead of paying for cinema tickets. Others may be streamers - anyone with an online following may wish to attract bigger crowds by streaming the latest games from day of release. Finally, whilst it seems a lot compared to the price you'll pay within a few months of release, you get a lot of game for £37 since it lasts 30+ hours even just completing the story and a few side missions.

^^Actually it does, when you drift off the road the joypad will start to rumble.

Plus the Scandinavia dlc is also on sale for under £5 and add's quite a lot of good stuff, i have been enjoying this with the Rift.

Does it allow you to use the motorway rummble strip as a guide while you close your eyes for 40 winks??
