THQ’s released the first trailer for Darksiders 2, along with plenty of new screenshots. The trailer introduces the sequel’s new protagonist Death, as well as revealing why he’s here in the first place. It also contains some great looking gameplay footage and we’re really digging the title’s art style. Darksiders 2 is in development for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 and will be releasing sometime in 2012. You can view the screens and announcement trailer below.

THQ’s released a new trailer for their upcoming sandbox Saints Row: The Third and it introduces one of the game’s main characters, Killbane – a.k.a The Walking Apocalypse. The trailer reveals his back-story as well as how you’ll have to fight him and his gang of fighters in SR: The Third. It contains gameplay footage which looks like it’s been taken right out of a WWE title, but appears to be really fun nonetheless. The Volition developed title releases on PC, PS3 and 360 on November 15 in the US and three days later in Europe. Watch the trailer after the break.

THQ’s finally seen fit to release a trailer of its live-action Red Faction spin-off, Origins. You know, the Syfy miniseries thing? Wait! We see that look in your eye – like a frightened animal backed into a corner. We smell the fear dripping off you. We know the phrase “Syfy miniseries” elicits certain reactions, but at least check out the trailer.
Or fast-forward to the part where the main character backfists, like, everyone who’s ever had a face. Also, we thought we saw Storm Troopers. Look, one way or another, this is going to be entertaining. So check out the full thing after the break, courtesy of Joystiq.

Looks like THQ’s caught a case of inSANE mania.
And for once, that’s not a malady made up by a grade school-aged child attempting to get out of phys-ed class.

Look, War – angriest and most vengeful of the Four Horseman – you’ve been a great asset to THQ and all, but we no longer have need of your services. We’re gonna have to let you go. No hard feelings, though, right? Right?

Interview part two – THQ’s Bilson on Guillermo del Toro, diversity of talent, the future of UFC Undisputed, tons more
Part two? Part two?! But what happened in part one?! Were there car chases? Explosions? Was an average Joe like you or me thrust into extraordinary circumstances and forced to shoot/box/interpretive dance his way out?
The suspense is probably killing you. You are probably walking toward the light as we speak, your pulse becoming ever fainter because you need your videogame interview fix right this very moment. But lo and behold! There it is, perched upon yon Internet!
And once you’re all caught up, part two’s waiting for you after the break. Early reviews have declared it even better than part one, and when have early reviews ever been wrong? Click onward to read THQ Core boss Danny Bilson’s thoughts on Guillermo del Toro, the future of game demos, selling cut-scenes, how we should treat talent in the gaming industry, licensed games, and tons more!

Interview part one – THQ Core boss Danny Bilson on Move/Kinect, creativity, MOH controversy, tons more
When you hear “THQ,” what springs to mind? Wrestling games? Ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-Nickelodeon? Well then, you might want to crawl out from under that rock you’ve spent the last few years living underneath.
Where’s Tim Schafer these days? THQ. How about Ninja Gaiden/Dead or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki? Same. And what’s this about Guillermo del Toro? The bottom line: THQ’s come a long, long way – but it’s far from done.
Leading the way has been THQ Core boss Danny Bilson, who was kind enough to take some time out from his busy schedule of interacting with some of the most interesting people in the industry to chat with little ol’ us. So we basically projectile vomited questions in his face, which he was surprisingly ok with.
Click past the break to hear Bilson’s thoughts on core Move/Kinect games, the need for creativity in the gaming industry, how we should handle touchy subjects like the recent Medal of Honor controversy, 3D, Tim Schafer, and plenty more!
