Review Round-Up: The Darkness II

The Darkness II, inspired by the comic book series, is the successor to the first game. It takes place a few years after the events of The Darkness where our hero, Jackie Estacado, has managed to become the don of the crime family and suppress his darkness powers. Developed by Digital Extremes, The Darkness II is a First-person shoot that uses the unique mechanic of quad-wielding. This allows you to wield two guns in addition to your two darkness arms that lets you grab and slash enemies and objects. Do these new mechanics add to the overall game, see what the critics have to say.

Final Fantasy XV - Death Caster Spell Trailer

Final Fantasy is known for their powerful spells among other things. Death is one such spell. This iteration of the powerful one-hit KO spell, when it hits, does it abit different. From the trailer you can see Noctis equip the Ring of the Lucil. I'm not sure if this is same ring from the KingsGlaive movie but it seems to be going by the items description.

This Death Spell literally sucks the life out of enemies until the die in a puff of smoke. The drawback to this spell, is that it leaves you completely open to attack and takes some time to cast. I completely understand for limitations on such a powerful spell and can't wait to get my hands of this game. November cannot come soon enough.
