Finished on the PS3 a few days ago Darksiders II, a kind of twisted version of Biblical Apocalypse. The first game you played as War, this time you play as Death. Before the 1st game I was a little leery going in, but they keep it far enough away from the Bible that it's not heretical or anything, they just pick and choose a few concepts here and there and mix them with other concepts to create a pretty interesting story. (For example, Biblical centerpiece characters like Moses or Jesus are never mentioned, God is only ever referred to as "the Creator", etc.) Great Zelda-like game for the most part, though the open world (compared to Darksiders I) seemed kind of pointless/aimless, with too much of the story simply given via dialogue. Still a solid, fun (violent) game, but I liked the first a little better.
