Legendary Pants

I completed Diablo III a while back, with a Demon Hunter.. and played around a little in Nightmare mode.  I remember being frustrated because I had to resort to the Auction House: I wasn’t able to take on Diablo in the gear I’d found or crafted along the way.  The loot drops were poor, and crafting was just too expensive and too hit-and-miss in terms of the magic effects.  When you have to craft four or five pairs of boots to get a pair with your primary stat, that’s not fun.

Darksiders II – Behind the Mask: Death Rises

THQ have released a new developer diary for Vigil Games’ Darksiders II, focusing on Death..

The story in Darksiders II runs alongside that of Darksiders, with War having been convicted and sent to Earth by the Charred Council.  The remaining three Horsemen are informed of this, but believe War to have been set up.  Death sets out to prove War’s innocence.. with a much larger game world filled with quests, loot, and powerful enemies to defeat.

In the developer diary, the Vigil team talk about the differences between War and Death, Death’s fighting abilities and the types of weapons he can use.. with a brief mention of the improved depth to the world players will experience in Darksiders II.

Darksiders II is planned for release in June for the PC, PS3 and 360, with a Wii U version planned for the launch of that system later in 2012.
