Oh hey, you. Do you know what came out yesterday? That’s right, the whole Internet was abuzz with it! I’m talking, of course, about
Titanfall Dark Souls II, that earnest sequel to the wailing and gnashing of teeth that was Dark Souls. At least, in America; we’ve got to wait another three days. Tch. But at least it’s better than waiting FOREVER, amirite, EA?
So far, it’s doing pretty well for itself, having garnered an average Metacritic score of 92 at the time of writing. I am pleased by this, but not nearly as pleased as I was when I watched the new launch trailer released yesterday. Miklós has done a good job keeping up with the trailer releases and news items, and I’ve been happy to wallow in the general exuberance of it all, but no longer. Because the newest trailer, titled Locomotive Breath, is succinct, poignant, and Jethro Tull (which is both a musician and — at least in this instance — an adjective for awesome). Set to the sound of Tull’s Locomotive
Death Breath, it’s a bluesy and entirely appropriate accompaniment to the fate that awaits you.
Watch the trailer after the jump, and prepare to despair one last time.
