Starbreeze's Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay was one of those titles that you really, really should have played.

They report that the "distributor responsible for bringing in games from 2K" says the title has been officially banned for "excessive violence."

Doing a second pass over our Sunday newspaper ads, we noticed that Circuit City is offering The Darkness for ten bucks cheaper than retail. This week, both online and in-store, The Darkness is available for the low, low price of $49.99, but doesn't include the 2K Sports Darkling like Gamestop offers...

This knocks the price of Starbreeze's latest FPS from the unruly next-gen price of $60 to a more comfortable PS2-level price ...

We've heard quite a lot about heart-eating single player campaign of The Darkness. We've seen all the Darkness powers put to good use. Kill all the lights, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Over at Gametrailers, diablokiller18 uploaded the first 25 minutes of The Darkness' single player story. Sure, the aspect ratio is wrong, and we're not entirely sure if he's "allowed" to do that, but it builds hype, and if the first review is any indication, the game is going to be a summer blockb...

We figured if we ignored it, maybe it wouldn't be true. Unfortunately, it is true. Play.com and Amazon.co.uk have both updated their release dates to corre...
