Playdate: Death becomes us in 'Darksiders 2'

Sponsored Links

When publisher THQ went bankrupt a few years back it was a staggering blow to the game industry. Sure, the company made some flops (oh hi, Homefront), but it also published some killer games like the Saint's Row and Metro franchises. The label also had Darksiders from developer Vigil Games. But unlike the first two series that I mentioned, Darksiders wasn't scooped up by a major publisher during the bankruptcy proceedings and comparatively was kind of left to languish. I'd honestly thought all hope was lost because while the series is great, it just couldn't really find an audience. So I was incredibly surprised when word came down that Darksiders 2 was getting a remastering earlier this year.

Join myself and Sean Buckley as we stream two hours of the game on Twitch starting at 6PM Eastern / 3PM Pacific and explore protagonist Death's world, kill some monsters and chill out to Jesper Kyd's excellent soundtrack. As always, you can find our broadcast on this very post, the Engadget Gaming homepage and if you'd want to chat along with us, Twitch.tv/Joystiq.
