Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel goes into Overkill mode with this latest video.

The video is titled "The Overkill Diaries #2" and definitely lives up to its name by showing us what the Overkill mechanic can do.

You build up your Overkill gauge by taking down baddies successfully. Once the gauge is full, you can activate the ability to shoot more rapidly, walk faster, and it looks like you'll even take less damage as well.

The flames that erupt around the edges of your screen let you know that you've become a veritable god of carnage as you send streams of bullets into your enemies. Think of it as being able to use a super attack in a fighting game after you've built up enough of a power meter through combos.

You can pre-order the game here, before it comes out on March 26th, 2013, and grab the Overkill Edition, which comes with extra guns, armor, and masks.

Let us know what you think of the Overkill mechanic and whether or not you wish more shooting games had something similar.
