Gaming Angels: THQ held a community event last week for their upcoming, much anticipated title, Darksiders II, during which they let us play the first 8 hours of the game. Coming into the event, I was very nervous about playing Darksiders II for so long, as I didn’t finish the first Darksiders game. The platforming puzzles and over-the-top Zelda cloning proved to be too much for my lack of patience, and I nearly flipped over a coffee table in rage. It really made me sad that I didn’t finish the game, as the story was so great and I really wanted to know how War’s story finished outside of reading a summary on Wikipedia. So having to play a game that could potentially make me flip something that’s not mine in rage really made me anxious. I am so pleased to say that I loved every second I had with Darksiders II.
