Darksiders II delivers its last sermon


Jun 29
 
Here be a live-action trailer for Darksiders II. It's been floating around for a few weeks, but this is the "extended cut," so there's even more live-action stuff for us to hate on because everybody hates live-action trailers.  There's really not much left to say about the game itself. I'm just impatiently tapping my foot until I finally get hold of the thing. Any day now would be fine, THQ!

Death strikes again in new Darksiders II trailer


May 17
 
A while ago, THQ released a Darksiders II trailer in which Death jumps around and hits stuff. Here's part two, with Death jumping around even more and hitting even more stuff.

Mar 14
 
Here's a video of Vigil Games chatting about the world it's created for Darksiders II. You'll get to learn a little bit about the concept for certain locations, as well hear a lot of boasting about how huge the environment is. Apparently if the first game was the Moon, this is Earth. Oooh! Still really looking forward to this sucker, so I've nothing to add. What about you lot?

Death is eternal in new Darksiders II trailer

Here's a grim, brooding trailer for Darksiders II, bigging up its grim, brooding protagonist.

Diddling with a Darksiders II Death Mask


Jan 23
 
An ominous package recently arrived, containing occult and forbidden artifacts from realms beyond our darkest imagination.

Even more skulls in this Darksiders II extended trailer


Jul 19
 
Hamza's preview of Darksiders II left me pretty excited with all that talk about RPG elements and a lack of QTEs, but I noticed that at least one of you thought this game needed more skulls and bones. So here's an extended trailer for Darksiders II that has skulls, bones, and an all-new voiceover that explains what the hell is going on. No Crips or Illuminati though.




Death comes for all in Darksiders II
