This mod allows you to play Darksiders 2 in first-person mode as Horseman Strife
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/this-mod-allows-you-to-play-darksiders-2-in-first-person-mode-as-horseman-strife/
Modder “Loki” has released a really cool mod for Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition. This mod basically enables a first-person mode and lets you experience the game as horseman Strife (the only horseman for whom we still don’t have a dedicated game).
Now what’s really cool here is that this mod also comes with a FOV modifier. FOV has been adjusted to 80 for this mod, though players can adjust/tweak it to their liking.
Strifesiders 2 also comes with a player damage modifier, enemy damage modifier, the ability to disable the main and secondary weapons and a reload speed modifier. It also updates the evade counter and it changes it from 2 fast, 1 slow to 4 fast, 1 slow.
>> Get it from Nexus Mods.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves Remake in Mugen, available for download, better than the arcade version
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/garou-mark-of-the-wolves-remake-in-mugen-available-for-download-better-than-the-arcade-version/
YouTube’s ‘Heat Games-Play’ has shared a Mugen remake of one of the best SNK 2D fighting games to date, Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Now what’s really interesting here is that this free Mugen game feels and plays better than the original arcade version, something that will definitely please all SNK fans out there.
This Garou: Mark of the Wolves remake in Mugen features all of the highly detailed animations that SNK created for this game, and – like all Mugen games – comes with some new/extra moves. Not only that, but the game feels like an enhanced version of the original game, and we really have to congratulate its creator for that. All hit reactions and hit-boxes are on point, movement is really smooth and does not appear “weightless,” and the game does not feel like some cheap Mugen recreation.
Given the fact that Garou: Mark of the Wolves is not an abandonware title, we strongly suggest purchasing it from Steam (in case you want to download and play this free Mugen remake).
>> Download this Mugen remake from Mediafire.
