The Darkness 2 Trailer Puts Nails In

Hmm, that smarts.
It has started. The flood of E3 trailers has begun. Below you can watch the first in-game trailer for The Darkness 2, which features people being brutally evisecarated by black tentacles. There’s also a lovely scene where the protagonist is being nailed to a door or something. It’s not pleasant. Fortunately I’ve also embedded a video of a cat cuddling a sleeping kitten, just in case you require an antidote to seeing metal spikes being hammered through your hands.

    The Darkness is doomed: Cat’s shall cuddle all!

    I sensibly avoided the unpleasent fantasy video and skipped straight to the soothing reality kitten video :P

    I have only one comment I feel I must add, “Awwwww! :D”. That is all.

    • noodlecake says:

      haha. Me too! I will watch the darkness video now though. I enjoyed the first one despite how eerily empty the streets were all the time

  8. Matt says:

    I hope this actually does come out on PC this time. The first game was superb!

    Also, shame that trailer has a big spoiler of something that happens in the first game…can’t convince people to play the first by showing them how cool the second one looks :/

    • wazups2x says:

      If you watched the whole trailer you’d see it says PC at the end.

      Also, this time it’s a different developer working on it. Digital Extremes, the guys that did all of the Unreal Tournament stuff.

  9. Jonathan says:

    I enjoyed the Darkness probably more than it deserved, but it was a shooter that actually had a worthwhile story, which is a rarity, and quad-wielding is a splendid idea. I’m disappointed that Kirk Acevedo doesn’t seem to be voicing Jackie this time though.

    • Felixader says:

      I know a dog who did Quad wielding a long Time ago.

      Off topic: And THIS games predecessor (that withe the quad wielding dog) i somehow remember with emotions like trip and that althougth i never have taken any drugs.

    • Gabbo says:

      It does suck that Acevedo isn’t doing Jackie’s voice, but the video does sell me on the rest of the game.

    • Chief Slambo says:

      @Felixader: MDK2? :D

      Who cares about Avocado! Patton’s back!

  10. Richard Beer says:

    I enjoyed the first kitten video on the Internet, and this seems like a worthy sequel.

  11. noodlecake says:

    I hope it’s Mike Patton as the Darkness again. He was great. :)

    I predict that in the future every single videogame protaganist shall be voiced by nolan north

  13. Moni says:

    That kitten looks like consolified rubbish, I can tell by the pixels.

  14. Scroll says:

    The first was a lot of fun, left on a bit of a cliff hanger as well.

    It’s a shame it’s not in the hands of the same developer but the first game wasn’t perfect so who’s to say they can’t make a better game?

  15. Inigo says:

    Wait, so… someone nailed a cat to a door?

  16. Cirdain says:

    Looks quite good :)

  17. CaspianRoach says:

    But… how do I control four hands if I only have two of my own? Do I need to get a chum over to be able to play this game?

    • BrendanJB says:

      L1 R1
      L2 R2

    • Tatourmi says:

      That would actually be pure genius: Coop game in one character. It would also reflect the difficulty you might have to control the darkness, to communicate with it, as well as it’s independance.

    • CaspianRoach says:

      What are those L1 R1 you are talking about? I can’t seem to find these buttons ON MY PC’S KEYBOARD.

  18. Mark says:

    I came for the kitten.

    I did not leave disappointed.

    Jackie Chan? )

  20. wazups2x says:

    Digital extremes is developing it so it should be pretty good on the PC.
