The extended announcement trailer for THQ’s Darksiders II is here, giving us a deeper appreciation of Death and his majestic steed. Is it just me, or is that horse looking a little pallid?

After bringing war to life in Darksiders the first, Vigil Games takes on the monumental task of granting a personality and likeability to the end of all things. If I were in charge, I would have started with the horse. He named his horse Despair? Way to stereotype Death as a goth. It’s insulting and displays a lack of cultural knowledge. Old school goths have all graduated to steampunk now. They should have named the beast Victoria and made it clockwork.

If I were Death, my horse would be named Mr. Wufflies. It’s not like it’s going to make the people I come to take away any less terrified. Besides, you don’t need to be scared to die. Perhaps a little levity is in order.
