Both Reach and ODST had excellent live action trailers. This? Piece of shit.
That looked too much like Reach's live trailer, and Reach did it better.
Ah well, it is just a stupid trailer, won't affect enjoying the game itself etc etc. (Speaking of which, i need to do one final playthrough of both ME and ME2 very quick...
Yeah, been getting the same feeling.
Hopefully the launch trailer will live up to the ME2 trailer. Both of these have been so meh, it's like they saw that every other AAA game has a big marketing gimmick and just decided to do all of them.
So they are fucking with us with these CG/Live Action trailers...right?
The launch trailer is coming next week.
Mass Effect 3 is going to be a great game..right?
You really don't know? They've got their sci-fi nerd audience on lock; now they're going for the dudebro shooters fans. Who gives a sit about the galaxy when you can Take Earth Back™?
I don't know why they make it sound like we're going to participate in war to take back Earth. Okay that'll probably happen at the end but I thought in the majority of the game we'll just be going from one planet to another *begging* other species to help us out?
Live Action Trailers done right.
Reach's ad campaign was something all other games should strive for. (as well as H3 and ODST)
ugh...not a big fan of these live action trailers. This is starting to remind me of the Halo Reach ad campaign that was cheesy and overdone as hell.
This ME3 ad was okay, but not as well done as those were by a long shot. Unfortunate since the Mass Effect universe is definitley some rich material to draw from.
Would have liked to have seen them go all out with some practical effects/make-up, and shown a live action Asari or Turian or something. Of course, that may have turned off the casual buyer, so what do I know?
In general, I find live action trailers to be a bit much for video games. I do agree that those Halo ones were excellent though.
Edit : I actually like this fan made trailer in the related video's, using Virgil actually emphasizes what I used to love about this series : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JmVf...eature=related
I think they do good ads, however if you never played this game (ME1,ME2) and watch this ad, you may get a different idea about the game. Same happened with Dragon Age 2, they had great ads and amazing visuals with good sound and whatnot but then I played the game and there was nothing I could relate to the ads I've seen. It was sad...
Also, better with Kinect? In my opinion no, it's not.
Can't wait for this one, will be getting the Collectors Edition.
