Darksiders II Comes Knocking in New TV Commercial

At Death's door

THQ might not have much money left in the bank, but it’s still got enough to plop a dramatisation of the apocalypse in between Coronation Street. This new Darksiders II television spot shows protagonist Death riding into oncoming traffic, while people run for their lives. We don’t know what’s wrong with them, really – the dude’s just practicing his equestrian skills.

That pre-rendering looks cool, I'm kinda bummed the actual game still has that cell shaded cartoony look. Normally I really like cartoony cell-shading but I think for a game about Death a little darker color pallet may have been more appropriate.
That said, I think this game should sell a lot better than the first just based on competition alone. It took me awhile to get to this, in part based on 3rd person action overload with this, Enslaved, Castlevania, GOW3, Neir, Bayonetta and Dante's Inferno. Upon finally playing it I realized it's actually an adult Zelda game much more than those others, but I played the demo first and at first glance it seemed like more of the same. This seems like more of the same as well but between now and the holidays what other competition is there? Maybe AC3 as GOW:A and Last of Us are March and who knows when Tomb Raider is coming out. If this game doesn't sell well they have no one to blame but themselves.
