I still need to finish the first one, but I'm very intrigued by all I heard about the second so far.

"Even worse he's from Glass-gow"

"Only two things to need to know about the scots, If it bleeds they'll fight it and you can eat it they'll deep fry it."

Colour me interested.

Hey look, Sheamus is in two Giant Bomb videos in a row. Oh wait, sorry, this guy is Scottish instead of Irish.

Some of the death animation look pretty cool.

looks fun

Glass-gao? Was he talking about Glasgow?

Time to double down on the Darkness II

I hope this game is good-it looks amazing from what I've seen.

WTF is this? This shouldnt be named Darkness...

Posted by Galiant

Might be a fun mode, can't tell, but I can't stand those character designs...

Posted by onan

Ugh, just watched the video. If this is the sense of humor the game has, I'm going to pass. That third-rate Woody Allen permanently ruined those characters for me with that introduction.

PC choice of characters haha. White guy, a black guy, an asian guy, and a jew.

Au revoir, Shoshanah!

It looks interesting, now let's see if they can make it good.

Looks really cool, but those facial animations are just plain awful. They're so stiff and they barely move, I thought the audio was out of sync of the video.

Is it still worth playing through the original Darkness? I missed it the first time around.

Posted by ozzdog12

Hope its half as good as the original. I'll buy.

helps that I also read The Darkness comics

Posted by blacklab

Go on...

She put a shotgun in that guys mouth... I can't tell if that lessens the awful facial animation but it's still pretty cool.

Totally. That was a poor attempt at a neurotic Jewish comedian. Felt so forced and off. Yeesshh!

Great trailer. I really hope that this little dude is prominent within the game.

I thought the age of terrible FPS gimmick weapons that take up half the screen was over. Guess not. The Darkness 2 looks like Tron and I do not mean that in a good way.

@ZarakixKenpachi: Go for it. I loved it.

Posted by Suits

wait, which doctor?

Posted by DharmaBum

Is that dude trying to be a video game version of Woody Allen?

Posted by ghostNPC

Yeah.... if they're going to have a character close up front spouting dialog, they should at least have the decency to animate him properly.

Posted by AwesomeAquaman

Needs more strong sexual content.

When's this coming out? 2 months? Eh, it's got time for some polish. I'll probably focus more on the single-player anyway, so hopefully that's where the effort goes.

As a Glaswegian, I am deeply insulted by this video.

Not the whole fighting/deep-frying/skirts part. That's all true.

But they should at least have hired an actual Scotsman to voice the character. That accent is terrible!

Posted by cloudnineboya

mon you celts...lol

and like above said, very bad accent. not even Scottish let alone Glaswegian.

liked the first game. not sure off what Ive seen so far

Didn't feel like it was trying to be terribly funny to me, just manic.

The first one looked kinda cool. Never played it but i liked the style and pacing. It also seemed they wanted to tell a story. This one here just looks stupid and over the top in a not fitting way. Ah well, wished the first one was also on PC.

Posted by G0rd0nFr33m4n

holy fuck balls, I had the volume up when the trailer started.... fuck !

Posted by cstrang

I could have gone without the Woody Allen wanna-be, but I still really want to play this game. Hopefully it puts those extra 4 months to good use.

Posted by FunExplosions

Not want

@ZarakixKenpachi:

Yes. The original Darkness is a fantastic game with a fantastic story.

If I remember correctly, the PS3 had better load times and some extra perks, but either console versions are fine, or if you can find it for PC, go for it.

Posted by TPoppaPuff

After that trailer, I could not want to play that game any less than I do right now.

Posted by the_red_mage

Don't care for these punks, all I want is more Jacky Estacado and more shadow tentacles to the face.

Not available for PC.

I think having a co-op mode almost makes up for them replacing the original awesome Jackie voice actor in favor of Nolan North...

...almost.

Edited by adam1808

nothing about this feels very Starbreeze-y, especially as Digital Extremes are trying to ape that games odd look, even the original had better looking character models than these

Posted by HellBrendy

I fucking love that crazy dude - I would really love to see his voice actor perform that role in a studio!

As for the game... Well, I'm playing it, but I'm probably not loving it like the first one.

Posted by Kato

This looks really good,but I still don't like the lip-synching. Hated it in the first game, hate it here. The art looks nice, but I miss the old Jackie voice actor. Still, this game will be great.
