THQ Apologizes for Darksiders II PC Port - Working on Adding Promised FeaturesCategory: Gaming

It's not often a company owns up to its mistakes, but that's what we have here. THQ's community manager Mathew Everett would like to apologize for the shoddy Darksiders II PC port. During development, it was reported that the PC version of Darksiders II would contain full .config files, additional graphics options, and full keyboard/mouse and controller hookups. Sadly, none of that happened. According to Everett, sometimes things change at the last minute, especially at the end of the development cycle, and unfortunately those happened to be on the cutting room floor, unbeknownst to him and coworker Jay Fitzloff at the time of the Community Summit, where they confirmed these features.
Though he cannot promise everything can be added, Everett does promise he's "working with the proper teams and have expressed the importance of including them in a patch." When the patch will be released and what will be included is as yet unknown. This isn't the first time a PC version has been treated like a red-headed stepchild and it certainly won't be the last, but at least it seems THQ is taking steps in the right direction to correct this cruel injustice.
If you've purchased Darksiders II for the PC, let us know what you think. Will you continue playing it or wait for the patch?
