Darkest of Days darkening Xbox Live with a demo

Today is a grim and sorry day in the history of Xbox Live, as the worst first-person-shooter to ever grace the Xbox 360 has a demo. You too can now sample a mere fraction of the horror that inspired our 1/10 review and caused me so much pain I was almost in tears by the time the credits rolled.

Want to know why there aren't many civil war games out there? This title, with its love of single-shot, slow-loading muskets, will quite definitively show you why. It is the metaphysical concept of pain made real and reproduced in plastic disc form, and I do not wish good things upon those who inflicted it upon the world. As far as I'm concerned, the creation of this game is akin to a major terrorist attack on the United States and the developer should be tried for treason. 

So yeah, enjoy the demo!
