Our videos of the Darkness II demo

After quite a long break, demos are back and today no less than two big upcoming titles are yours to try. We will start with The Darkness II, a sequel which won't disappoint those in need for gory violence. Here are the first 10 minutes of the 360 demo which was released earlier today, captured in the highest difficulty setting and without any HUD. Two more videos will follow as soon as possible.
Update 2: Part 3 added.

Can't wait to play it myself, looks cool.

But why isnt it out on PC and PS3, some sort of a dumb 360 timed exclusive? silly if true.

Disabling the HUD sure made for a more cinematic experience.

I enjoyed the demo a good deal. I'm definitely renting this. Only thing I didn't like was the apparent removal of the dynamic FPS hands from the first one(ie: if you got close to objects, you'd move one or both of your hands instead of keeping them pointing directly in front...it added quite a bit)

I definitely think that's part of Starbreeze's engine because you also see that in their new Syndicate game. It was damn cool, for sure.

I wish somehow the PC crowd could get the first one released, as an appetizer for #2
I've always been interested in that game but nobody I know owns it.

Lacks the atmosphere and style of the original game by Starbreeze Studios (which, by the way, is a underrated game).

    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (2 Hours ago)

    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (2 Hours ago)

  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (3 Hours ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (6 Hours ago)
