      I hope Vigil Games is not acquired by Platinum games. Bayonetta, Vanquish, Metal Gear Rising (played only the demo) all have good gameplay but stupid stories. If they do get Vigil Games, Darksiders III will have the stupidest story in the whole series with great gameplay >_<.

      Yeah, Darksiders III deserves better publisher.

      That's why Koch Media/Deep Silver purchased it. It should be their most profitable title. Poor UBISOFT lost only by a little.

      i am happy that sega bought relic. at least they will bring some rts in future. if ubi bought relic then god knows what would happen to coh or warhammer series. also creative assembly got the license for some warhammer title afak. so there will be more and better rts in warhammer universe. i dream that one day CA will challenge blizzard the money sucking companion of activision with some wonderfully crafted rts and slap them in the face.
