Dark Void looks like a pretty good video game or whatever, but its real contribution to the world is this figurine. Sold at Capcom's Comic-Con booth, the figure depicts protagonist Will taking off on his totally sweet jetpack. One detail that probably netted Capcom a few impulse buys: both the helme...

Listen, we don't have a dude-crush on Battlestar Galactica and Dark Void compose Bear McCreary -- rather, we have an ear-crush on his musical creations. Once you finally get your hands on Capcom's jetpack-infused action title, you'll understand why -- though during a recent interview with Examiner...

Airtight Games' upcoming Dark Void is a title on many a gamer's radar, not only because Airtight is comprised of some of the developers responsible for Crimson Skies, one of the original Xbox's gems, but because flying around with a jetpack is really awesome. You don't have to take our word for it, ...

E3 was brütal! If you blinked, for a split/second, you missed something. Even if you were trine to keep up, it was a blur -- staying a.wake like that, you only pushed yourself to the brink of your own dark void. That's where Joystiq comes in; to crackdown on the madness; to reach out ... with ...

There's not much we can say about our latest hands-on session with Dark Void that we haven't said five times before. The jetpackery? Still breathtaking. The vertical cover system? Still brilliant. The visual presentation -- well, you get the picture. Needless to say, Capcom hasn't taken any of the...

We understand you're currently wandering through a maelstrom of exciting megaton announcements, but we want you to take a moment to soak in this wonderful, albeit non-major announcement: Capcom senior producer Morgan Gray confirmed that Bear McCreary's incredible-so-far Dark Void soundtrack will b...

click to enlarge This isn't the first time we've played Dark Void, having gotten a chance both at last year's E3 and this year's CES. But, when a game is about flying with a jetpack, we really can't resist playing more. Rest assured, Dark Void seems to get better and better. Capcom could have scra...

At a recent media event, Joystiq sat down with Capcom's Morgan Gray, senior producer of Dark Void. Gray fielded our questions on jetpack gameplay, multiplayer, DLC (confirmed!), and much more, including the frightening revelation that the helmet design could be confused with -- oh, let's not even g...

We'll admit it -- we kinda have a crush on Capcom and Airtight Games' Dark Void. It started back at E3 '08, and only got stronger when we had a brief rendevous at CES earlier this year. So, when we saw the game being demo'd at yesterday's MI6 Game Marketing summit, we were both excited and confuse...

Hey, guy -- what's the matter? We've noticed you've been looking positively sullen these past few weeks. Has the series departure of Battlestar Galactica got you down in the frakking dumps? There's not much we can do about that, though your spirits may be lifted by checking out a recent blog post ...

Capcom has plenty of big titles in the coming months (Dark Void and Bionic Commando, to name a couple), but it looks like its fiscal year stands to get even more packed. On Major Nelson's most recent podcast, Capcom spokesman Chris Kramer mentioned "big titles for next year, Lost Planet 2 and Dead...

Capcom has provided us with a very brief trailer that elaborates on the backstory of Dark Void (as if we needed it). Last time we checked, the game had jetpacks in it. As long as that's still the case, consider our interest piqued and the rest of this merely icing on the cake ... which is shaped lik...

Recently, MonsterVine.com posted four gameplay videos of Airtight Games' Dark Void and, truth be told, we think it's high time that jet-propelled transportation became the norm. You can view all four aerial combat videos after the fold. The footage is full of nifty 180-degree turns, mounting sequenc...
