Dark Days: Torchlight II Opening Goes Bleak

Giant armor monster demon used Big Bad status. It's super effective!

It’s the weekend. I should have a perpetual grin plastered across my face as I skip down the street with cartoon birds fluttering in my wake. Instead, I’m feeling a bit like finding a corner with a shadow that’ll cover my face just so and gazing wistfully out a window. The cartoon birds are still invited, but this isn’t really their scene, you know? And who, pray tell, de-springed my step? Why, that’d be Runic, purveyor of whimsical hack ‘n’ slash rainbow adventures and opening cut-scenes that kill everyone – in lavish, faded-parchment-style 2D, no less, but my point still stands. At any rate, this new villain apparently packs quite the punch. Watch as he politely introduces himself – and then, somewhat rudely, does that whole murder thing – after the break.

Torchlight II still has no release date, but I sort of narrowed it down a little when I recently spoke with Runic CEO Max Schaefer. In the meantime, though, a certain hack ‘n’ slash hellion is cracking his nightmare domain’s gates wide open this weekend. I was going to check it out, but apparently that’s also not my cartoon birds’ scene. Little jerks ruin everything.
