Brothers,



As some of you might already know the demo is not yet out although I have previously given information that it would be.



The wicked embodiment of Light and Order, the Angelus, must be corrupting the Darkness somehow because the demo is not ready.



I can guarantee there will be a demo. I cannot guarantee that it will come before the game releases.



Maybe a sacrifice of some sort will provide the impetus needed to birth a demonstration of The Darkness...

Can't wait for this game. Only down side to the 360 version is. We don't get the entire Darkness comic Book Collection that the PS3 gets. Wanted to read some of them.



Also it appears that Jackie will not be wearing any of the darkness armor. Which he is know for wearing in the comics.

<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Here's the story with the demo:



As I've said before, the game will ALWAYS take precedence and priority over a demo. That means that if the game is falling in behind in something or something isn't working right and needs fixing the people working on the demo will be pulled and made to work on the game. Making a demo is like making an entirely new game. I know you might think, "but if they have a finished level can't that be the demo?"



It's not that easy. Demos need to pass a different set of criteria set by MSFT if it's for the Xbox 360 and Sony if it's for the PS3 than the full game. Otherwise we can't release it. The full game has to pass the criteria too in order to pass or "go gold", but those things (called "TCRs" for MSFT and "TRCs" for Sony) are usually worked on at the end once all the game stuff is finished.



Also, keep in mind the demo has to be as polished and indicative of the final product as possible. If the demo sucks then all of you will think the full game sucks. Moreover, the demo has to play differently so you can get a feel of the overall game and want to play more. I know there are some games like God of War and God of War II that took the first level and they were awesome. But those first levels also gave you that overall feel for the entire game. A single level won't necessarily do that for all games because maybe you wont have enough powers or the level only makes sense and plays well because of the preceding and succeeding levels.



Now, for all the doubters and non-believers in our midst, your purpoted reasons for why the demo is delayed are laughable at best. Woe be to you who've written that we are "afraid" to post a demo on Xbox Live because of the competition from all the other demos on there. Or those who thought we are intentionally delaying the demo because you think the game is overhyped and that the demo will show how allegedly bad it really is. When the reviews hit next week you will be lucky if I let you polish my shoes with your tongues. We get the review scores early so I know what they are already. You'll have to wait until then before everyone has self-posted evidence of how big a fools you all are.



Your naivete aside, I will tell you exactly why the demo is late. We hit a few snags of the full game and were at risk of being late and missing the release date by a week or two. So we pulled people off the demo to work on the game and now we are on time for release of 6/26 (it SHIPS on 6/25 but will be IN STORE on 6/26). It's axiomatic.



I was told we will be submitting the demo this week for approval. We will have to wait about 2 more weeks to get approval (hopefully) and then post it on XLM and PSN.



As always, if you have any questions you know how to contact me.</div>
</div>


Demo will hit 1st or 2nd week of July. Doubt we will see it any sooner. Unless Sony or MS pushes for the demo to get released sooner.

For anyone who read the comics Isn't it true that Jenny dies, Jackie goes to the other world. Finds jenny. some x guy(not sure what his name was). Demands Jackie to kill him, but kills jenny's weird form. Can anyone explain the whole Jenny story if your ever read the comic. Does she live or does she ever come back to the real world. Was she truly killed for good not to be seen again?

The Darkness Eurogamer review (http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=78377&amp;page=2)
<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">There are things about The Darkness that will have you gurning with frothing appreciation and leave you in no doubt that Starbreeze is among the most talented developers in the world. Its ability to consistently inject new life into a resolutely tired genre shouldn't be underestimated. Just as Starbreeze managed with The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, the pacing's exquisite in that the game twists and turns in new directions just when it's required.</div>
</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">The things that really mark The Darkness out are, we'll repeat, it's "minute-to-minute gameplay". You can't argue with that. It's a game which offers thrills arguably as intense as anything the genre has to offer. It is, for the most part, an extraordinarily entertaining game with precious little fat around the edges, complemented by a wonderfully engaging script, great (although sometimes cod amusing in the case of Mike Patton's attempt at voicing The Darkness with gravely malevolence) voice acting, and some of the best presentation you'll ever see in a first-person shooter.



It's not often we'll talk about 'game direction' in the way that a film reviewer might refer to a must-see movie, but this deserves to be held up as a great example of a game that got it spot-on. More often than not, you get the sense that Starbreeze's main aim was to keep its audience entertained and that everything else simply flowed from that central idea. Admittedly, it's a shame that the otherworld sections were a blight on the overall quality, but it's not enough to detract from how you'll feel about it.



In a year absolutely crammed with interesting-looking first-person shooters, you've got to come up with a game of extraordinary quality to rise above the competition. The Darkness has come along at simultaneously the best- and worst-possible time: on the one hand, it has arrived before it risked being drowned out in a fiercely competitive market, full of games claiming to be the Next Big Thing; on the other, it might well suffer from people holding off for what else is coming out. For what it's worth, I'd concur with Rob and suggest that any fan of first-person shooters needs to play this game, even though the occasional duff level disrupts the quality at times. Once The Darkness gets its tentacles around you, resistance is futile.</div>

EGM scores The Darkness: 9, 6.5, 8.5



"The Darkness really needed to point players in the correct direction instead of trying to make the game more immersive by forcing them to literally look at street signs like real-world tourists (I want to play games, not life, folks)."



"[The puzzles] were annoying because the game does a horrible job of clueing you in about using your powers for puzzles. But I guess the developers expect you to figure things out through frustration."



I wonder who the retreat was that gave it a 6.5

Re: The Official The Darkness Thread



Some tips for people who will start playing soon ( No Spoilers will be contain in this guide)



- You start the game with no Powers. First power you get is creeping Darkness. Learn to the powers. It will save you allot of time and make some parts much easier.



- Eat the hearts. They will upgrade your powers. Eat selected hearts and you will gain new powers.



- You do not have unlimited Ammo. So check how much ammo you have.



- Search for notes. They will unlock new content in the game.



- Darklings will use different outfits. Depending on what you find. Enter 555-GAME(at the phone) to unlock the 2k Jersey/Gamestop outfit.



- Check the Achievements on the pause menu for a better detail list on how to unlock x Ach.



- Game contains on full Movie which is To kill a Mocking Bird, Rest are clips. PS3 Contains few more full movies and more comics from The Darkness. PS3 version will also support home.



- Stay in the darkness. While using the darkness(and in the darkness) you have a darkness shield. Which can protect you. It can be taken out after you run out of Darkness powers.



- If anyone has any questions ask I can answer them.

Just got the Gunner darkling. She pretty bad ass. Just don't get in her line of fire. Also if you going to shoot a TV. Stand away from it the glass that sprays can hurt you.



Really enjoying the game. Wish one gun had unlimited ammo since you have to keep shooting at the lights.



Only problem so far is the AI is a bit dumb. At least on Normal or Hard. Not sure how it's on Easy.

Is it the developers being lazy or the system itself thats causing 360 games to look better than PS3 titles? of course PS3 exclusives look great. as do 360 exclusives. but in multiplatform we have games like Fight Night with Lego man crowds on PS3, now Darkness, Tony hawks, and the list goes on.

Darkness on the PS3 looks just fine on the PS3. Looks the same as the 360 version. Stop trying to find reason to bash the PS3. Just because it's made by Sony. We get it we truly do you don't like Sony.

Re: The Official The Darkness Thread



Just finished it. The final Area. Was way to easy. Most of it was a cutscene. With the Darkness unleashing it's true power. Darkling were beating the crap out of all the guards. Remember one darkling took a saw and sawed the guys head off. Just wish the Uncle Paulie fight was a little bit more epic or longer for that matter. With that kind of ending(only think theirs one Ending). Just hope 2k, topCow &amp; StarBreeze do The Darkness II.



btw listen to the darklings. Theirs funny at times. "Open wide asshole" - darkling taking a leak in the dead guys mouth.



Haven't enjoyed a game this much for a long time. Well worth the 59.99. Going play though it again. Try find all the side missions I missed one or two of them.



Just hope they get the ok to do The Darkness II.

Re: The Official The Darkness Thread



GameSpot - 8.5 (from Gamespot new rating system)



The Good - # Amazing voice work and dialogue set the mood right out of the gate

# Stunning graphics, both technically and artistically

# Darkness powers are a lot of fun to use again and again

# Compelling, well-told story

# Can press a button to devour human hearts.



The Bad -



* Most of the conventional weapons are useless

* Enemy reactions and artificial intelligence feel a little too passive at times

* Multiplayer feels a little tacked-on.



I'll agree with 2nd two. First one is BS. I use basic the weapons allot.

Re: The Official The Darkness Thread



In my opinion the game just failed in everything it tried to be good at. The fps part failed because of the auto aim. The darkness powers failed because they both got boring real quick, and didn't offer much in the way of usefulness. Fact is once I got the (<span style="color:Red">SPOILER</span>) portal ability, that's all I used. The enemies also didn't seem all too afraid of me. Which kind of ruined the whole "I r badass" feel. Oh and the ending... Are you fucking serious? I didn't even get a choice. Might as well make the last level a cinematic. Oh that's right, they did. (I'm not even going to touch the mp because of how laughable it is)



Fact is, the only thing the game did right was show off some nice visuals.

Revan, do you remember where you got the 7 guys in 15 seconds? I'm thinking that last part with the unlimited enemies would be a good place to go but I thought I'd see where you got it. I also need to get that blackhole achievement. Almost had it last time I played.
