Ok, I'm in.  
 
Darksiders was a great game and seeing this makes me instantly regret trading it in.

HELL YES!! Just got my platinum trophy on the first one this tuesday!
 
EDIT: What a bizarre character design for Death.

Actually it's very close to how death was depicted in the Darksiders comics.

Loving it, good to see its keeping its own style intact!
 
Looking forward to the puzzles, Death seems more agile then War.

And pretty close to how Casey Jones was depicted in the Ninja Turtle movies.

@Mordukai: I wasn't even aware of a Darksiders comic. What is it about? A prequel story?

Cool. The first one was fun, even if very basic. The whole time I was playing it I was thinking a sequel would probably kick ass though.

Darksiders is 1 word :( 
 
looks awesome as expected, but im a HUGE fan of the first. Also, Despair (Death's horse) looks creepy

its a prequel yes, War impales Death through the chest with his sword and Death is pretty much like "Dude...come on..."and brushes it off

Looks like a member of Slipknot.

On second thought it actually reminds me of Mick Thomson

Badass trailer for a badass game.
Day 1 buy.

For some reason I read the title of this thread as Dark Stalkers 2.

#16 Posted by defaulttag (890 posts) -

hyped!

#17 Posted by valrog (3648 posts) -

Now I really can't wait. Here's hoping that they do a better job with the PC version this time around.

#18 Posted by zombie2011 (5048 posts) -

Want it now, the end of the first game was so great.

#19 Edited by Nocall (356 posts) -

So you're only playing as Death in this one? I thought I heard awhile back that all four horsemen would be featured in this sequel--was that a dream or did I miss a design change?
 
Edit-- did it bother anyone else that you can't see Death's mouth? they need to animate his jaw moving when he's speaking or something, it looks weird with his head just bobbing there while words psychically fly out from his skull.

@Mordukai: I was just going to post that after I seen the video. Looks pretty badass.
#21 Posted by Vorbis (2750 posts) -

That Reaper form looks amazing, can't wait.

#22 Posted by Yummylee (22538 posts) -

The purple scythe naturally suits Death a lot more than it did War :P Just hope we'll also at least get to see Famine and Pestilence in this game, if Death is definitely leading this one.

#23 Posted by mordukai (7185 posts) -

So it looks like this game will take place around the same time as the first one. Would be great to see other realms being explored. I would really like them to delve more into the origins on the horseman and expand on the story that was only hinted at on the prequel comic.

I got Darksiders about 4 months ago when Amazon had it for $10 I think after hearing the GB praises and I loved it. I will get this at launch for sure!

The voice acting. My God, THE VOICES! MY GOOOOOD! THEY'RE SO GOOD!!!1

#26 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Let me change my pants.
 
OK.  GODDAMNIT I WANT IT NOW!  I loved the first game so so so so very much, and playing as death is going to be even more fun.  Definitely was my favorite design out of the 4 in the comic book.  Cannot wait!  I hope it comes out early 2012.

#27 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

I think I'm going to pre-order Warhammer 40K Space Marine when I get money to get a PC copy of Darksiders for free so I can play it again, since Space Marine looks goddamn awesome anyways.

#28 Posted by MEATBALL (3471 posts) -

Pretty sure this game will be better than Skyward Sword and its Wii motion+ bullshit.

seems like an awesome version of skeletor.

That's what the end of the first game implied, at least.

I really don't like the Darksiders character designs. 

I hope this game emphasizes puzzle-solving and exploration more than the first. The 3D Zelda games can get away with mediocre combat because it's fairly rare and fast, but in Darksiders (which, granted, has better combat, but it's still not good) you spent probably 80% button mashing boring enemies to death. It was more God of War than Zelda.

With an emphasis on awesome.  :P
#33 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Darksiders was the only game in a LONG time that I've played through and not ever had one complaint about.  Usually I'll get pissed at something stupid in a game or get a bit bored of it, but that never happened in Darksiders for me.

#34 Posted by Tennmuerti (8174 posts) -

Death and War are awesome.
 
Bu the problem is that it leaves them the 2 lame horsemen that they changed for Darsiders 3 , Strife and Fury

This. I loved that game!
#36 Edited by Kyle (2325 posts) -

So the original concept for Darksiders included four player co-op, hence the four horsemen. That was cut early on. Then, after the end of Darksiders 1 very heavily implied that the next game would have that co-op, I was pretty disappointed to hear the sequel would be a single-player side story.... But now that I'm seeing images from the game, who am I kidding? I can't help but be incredibly excited at the prospect of more Darksiders.

Sure, Death's face looks a little too... I dont know... mid-90s comic book hardcore? Like he should be Spawn's sidekick or something... BUT DUDE IT'S A SEQUEL TO DARKSIDERS!!

Can you get the comic in a store or is it online only?

I like to think they'll have learned from their mistakes last time around. Let's face it, Darksiders wasn't completely issue free, but it was pretty damn awesome... I think that for DS II they've got a substantial fan base who are ready to take that game on its own merits, not as a clone of Zelda, and they'll try to do right by them in every way possible. I like to be an optimist. I actually wrote an article about Darksiders, peoples' expectations for Darksiders II, and Zelda, so if you're interested in that, give it a read because I'd like to know what you think of my opinions. I'm trying to home my skills because I want to go into games journalism quite seriously, so the feedback would be greatly appreciated. :)

@tomr711: Hello, I just got the time to read it all. Well written, I agree that Zelda is becoming stale, and even more appreciate Darksiders because they can pretty much do anything. Trying out new things, with practically no limitations. And it seems like they're going in the right direction, improving on everything while at the same time adding a ton of new stuff.

I thought the title said 'Dark Sniders".
