So in watching this trailer for Darksiders II you'll notice that the main character you'll be controlling is Death, but some things seem slightly off about him in this one. You'll see him riding a pale horse; and that sounds about right. It's just that, why is the personification of the opposite of life so damned yoked? The dude looks all swollen up, healthy and heroic. Yeah, he's the hero of this game, but if Death is going to be embodied (which is a braintwister in and of itself) by a character, you'd think he'd be super bony and unhealthy looking. I mean, he represents the ultimate destination for unhealthy lifestyles right?
Anyway, check out the trailer because it explains just what you're up against in this game. There's a devil looking character and some angels flying around. It seems Death needs human beings alive so he can be relevant when they die and those jerks have gotten rid of all of humanity. Sounds complicated in a movie-of-the-week kind of way.
