Alvy Singer Presents The Darkness II

If you're one of those oxygen-wasting oiks who feels compelled to snarkily observe upon the relative advanced age of things you see on the internet, a) do be quiet b) team RPS has been busy attending the EG Expo and then The Wedding of Walker so we're still catching up with all the gameosity that bobbed to the surface of this endless electronic ocean over the last few days. Next is a story trailer for 2K/Digital Extremes' demonic manshooter/manmangler The Darkness II. Which reminds me, I still need to write a preview about this based on what I saw of it at Gamescom. My notes mostly just say 'IT'S SO NOISY' repeatedly, though. Then there are some damp, streaky marks that I can only imagine are tear-stains. Which is odd, given I wrote those notes on a laptop.

This recaps the first game, so if you didn't play/finish that and ever intend to, don't watch this because SPOILERS AAAAAARGH SPOILERS OH GOD THE SPOILERS WILL DESTROY ANY PURPOSE OR MEANING WE HAVE IN LIFE HOW COULD WE EVER ENJOY OURSELVES AGAIN IF WE READ SPOILERS.

I never knew Woody Allen was so interested in first-person shooters based on comicbooks.
