YES YES YES YES YES YES!

Legendary actor and Destructoid patron saint, Willem Dafoe, has been revealed in Beyond: Two Souls. Quantic Dream's upcoming game just got 100,000,000,000 times more interesting! 

The above trailer showcases America's favorite orc-faced icon in all his craggy glory, and it truly is a sight to behold. The trailer doesn't give us any gameplay, Beyond still selling itself on nothing but Hollywood street cred, but the reveal of Willem Dafoe makes a compelling argument. The argument of -- WILLEM DAFOE AAAAAHHHHHHH!

Any game with the Dafoe Factor -- also known as the Willelement -- has a good chance of being the greatest game ever made. This is true of films, with Spider-Man, American Psycho, and A Horse Named Keanu all being classic movies of their time. 

Godspeed to the artists at Quantic currently working to recreate the most gloriously terrifying face in movies. The game's coming out October 8 on PS3!

Beyond: Two Souls is getting a demo on October 1, 2013. Some people can get it right now though if you know where to look. Like on GameStop's Facebook page. For everyone else, the entire demo has been uploaded to YouTube. And you know what? That's fine by me in this case. I have never been able to get into a David Cage game before. So I'd much rather watch someone else play.
Up to this point, I've been unintentionally avoiding Beyond: Two Souls. Perhaps that'll work out for the best. Despite the fact that none of Quantic Dream's prior titles have done much of anything for me, Beyond has piqued my...
