You’ve been playing for a while. Why don’t you take a break?

Good idea, Dad.

It’s been fun. I appreciate everyone who’s ever bothered to read my work. Unfortunately, I’m too busy and life’s too short. I can barely make time to play video games.

Thanks!

People went fucking nuts for it.

Having just beaten both Darksiders games in the last nine months or so, it’s been on my mind. And despite my less-than-favorable review of Darksiders 2, I’m still looking forward to the next entry in the series.
