Darksiders = Friggin Hard ... I can haz Easy?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
So I played this game all weekend, it's pretty awesome fun. And I dunno if I just suck or haven't bought the right upgrades or what but there's some parts where the the 'save points' are hella far apart and I'm getting really irritated by having to replay certain parts over and over and OVER.

Right now I'm at the save point in Anvil Forge where you have to blow up the bridge support to let Shrek across, then you get a mini-gun and have to fight your way through like 1,000 'Pigeons' and I just don't seem to be able to get to the next damn save point w/o dying. Played it like 15 times now, and it's like 8 minutes each time before I inevitably DIE.

SOOOO ... is there a way to drop the difficulty down to 'Easy' in this game w/o starting over, cause I'm about to friggin quit at this point?

Also ... there's NO GRAPHICS OPTIONS in this friggin game?!? Really? Anyone know if there's a config file somewhere for it with some gfx options one can tweak? Obviously I've forced on TRSSAA and AF through NVCP, seems to help a bit, but ... more options to crank up would be cool thumb.gif

console port is console port, but still a good game regardless...

i've been through that part on Apocalyptic, sometimes u have to drop the gun to avoid their attacks, then attack them up with air attacks, and if on ground use X->delay->X attack, very powerful and will make short work of the angels.

no graphics options? Hmm. I bought the game, haven't finished downloading it yet. Hopefully it runs well, so I won't miss the lack of options

Yeah, I got through that part eventually last night and plowed through and (finally) beat the next boss, The Griever. It's a pretty sweet game ... good times. But NO gfx options aside from resolution and v-sync, which is lame. My cards totally pwn the game though at 1920x1200, based on gpu load I'd say it would run flawlessly on a GTX250/4850 or anything above that.

That's good to know. As per my sig, I have a GTX-470. I just wonder if it would run well on my laptop (5470, Core2Duo 2.0GHz).

Its been fun so far. I havent had a lot of time to play it lately. I will say it is rather difficult for me as well and I grow impatient if I die a few times and have to keep starting a boss over and over.

OP - ofcourse it's hard! It's a puzzle game - if it were easy...it wouldn't be fun would it? Then again, I got pissed off at spending 2-3 hours per puzzle...so yeah...I just found a guide tongue.gif

It is hella rewarding when you figure it out though...really makes you think! Great game. After you beat it, make sure to try it out with the +10 trainer tongue.gif
