When Vigil Games (headed up by comic book maestro Joe “Mad” Maduriera) released Darksiders in 2010, it introduced a great new action series, one revolving around the Horseman War as he accidentally triggered the Apocalypse (oops) then set out to fight the demons that have overtaken the Earth as a result. The game is rich in both character and action, and set the stage for an even bigger sequel, Darksiders II. Well, this week, THQ invited us to an event to go hands-on with the game for the first time, to get an idea of what playing Death – the star of the sequel – would be like. And the truth? Well, he kicks ass, straight up.
