Original Thread: Nathan Drake with a Jetpack. Let's Play Dark Void



What is Dark Void?

Dark Void is a third person shooter released in January 2010 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 and later on PC. The game is set in August of 1938, shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War. We follow Nathan Drake, William Augustus Grey, a cargo pilot hired for a job that sees him flying through the Bermuda Triangle. What follows is the incredibly moving journey he and his heterosexual life partner Cooper "Coop" Cooperson go on. Wacky hi-jinks abound.

The game features cover based shooting, weapon upgrading systems, mid air combat and the smooth voice of Nolan North.

It is also not very good. It's highest score in the reviews was a 7 of a 10, with the general reception being closer to a 5. I appreciate the game as it tries to stretch itself and do something original. It just doesn't do it very well.

So why are you playing it?

Because no one else has finished a let's play of it on this site and doing games no one else has done before makes me feel special and unique.

Stop judging me.

Are there collectables?

There are collectable journals, but I'm not going out of my way to get them. If I spot them I'll pick them up. I'm not going to be trying to translate Korean(?) maps to find all the collectables like I did for Front Mission Evolved.

Can we spoil anything?

I'd rather you didn't. My Co-commentators are experiencing this blind. While I don't care about being spoiled myself I'd at least like to get their first impressions.


The game is broken up into Episodes, and each of these are made up of several chapters. For the most part I'll stick to completing one Chapter a video, apart from instances where individual chapters are incredible short or filler.
