Our own Romudeth has just completed a review of Darksiders 2 for STFUandPlay.com here is a taste.

Humanity is no more. Wiped out by a prematurely initiated Armageddon, the only salvation for Mankind lies with the Grim Reaper himself: Death.

This is the ambitious set up for the equally ambitious game, Darksiders II.

It’s been fun but this will be the last week were we post Daily Metals.  We’re doing this as a way to streamline the site and to avoid the dreaded “Wall of Metal” that happens when there is nothing to post and the front page ends up being nothing but Daily Metal.  But don’t fret.  Now with Daily Metal gone we’ll step up our Metal love in other ways like album, dvd and live show reviews as well as opinion pieces about what is happening in the world of Metal and some band spot lights.

Heavy Metal will never die!
