    lol.

    Oh artists.  You're so artsy!

    Trailers like that make me embarrassed to admit that I play that game. But, I acknowledge the hard work that went into that and that it is quality work.  That said, it still felt like a nintendo commercial from the 80s.

    I prefer it over Skyrim live action trailer. the moment Dovahkin showed up I face-palmed so hard.

    What I loved about the Skyrim trailer was that all the townsfolk in the game were running for cover.

    But in-game they just stand there and stare at you until the dragon kills them.

    Like Sven in Riverwood.  Just stared at me and then got roasted. Lol. Ah... good memory.

    The Skyrim trailer blew this out of the water;)

    Well that explains it. Never did like Matrix or V for Vendetta.

    Someone was working on a mod for that. Some guards stood their ground, some ran away, and townsfolk ran inside their houses. Pretty sweet.

    When this trailer started off, it felt more like a TSW trailer hehe!

    While I don't think it's awful, it certainly isn't something I expected from ANet.  It's completely different than anything they've ever done.  Specifically, including real people.  I have to admit I thought it a joke or for something else during the first half.

    That was... really stupid, sorry. Most of that had nothing to do whatsoever with GW2.

    And what's up with undead King Ghidorah there?

  • CujoSWAoACujoSWAoA Nooo, AKMember Posts: 1,781 Uncommon

    I think what makes the trailer so stupid is that its doesn't make any sense, what so ever.

    So.... its time for a bunch of 20 year old hot white people to do random weird shit in strange unrealistic places?

    And then a ethnic rich group of GW2 characters who're all dressed in some of the dumbest looking armor I've seen in the game climb out of an ocean and yell at a dragon!

    Doesn't represent Guild Wars 2 what so ever, in my opinion.

    Lol that was awkward. I think they jumped the shark on that one.

    This trailer was a lot worse than Skyrims IMHO. In Skyrim at least it was all rugged and medieval...the creator here trying to connect with its target audience by showing the target audience for 80% of the trailer? FAIL!

    You cannot be seriously serious....

     

    -.-   Don't know if fanboying or just extremely bad taste.

    Its like over at ANet they thought :

    "Well we just dethroned WoW... what now?"

    "You heard of that new emo teeny MMO for kids that think they're dark, deep and edgy and stuff?"

    "No.. ?"

    "Er... dark deep pretentious SECRETIVE mysteries? You got it?"

    "No.."

    " ... you just killed the joke. Lets kill it anyways..."

     
     
     
     
     
    "Hey I ignored all the fun content and played this game like a hamster because it was possible just spending long enough time in the wheel. Why are games so boring X-clones these days and can't be more like X? Im going back to grind repeatable tasks in X and hone my skills with some dice roles, waiting 14 months for the next paid content patch."

    Unless you can do live action fantasy EXTREMELY good (like at the level of Lotr), don't bother. it simply looks awkward. like Dovahkin in  the trailer.

    Modern day + Hoodie + Gas mask = TSW.

     

    I had to check to make sure it was GW2.

    Hard to get excited over them selling to new customers again when many current customers still can't get into their own accounts because they were hacked and stolen.

    That sucked!  Good things games largely aren't liked or disliked based on the trailer.  Blizzard and Bioware have nothing to worry about in the trailers department that's for sure!   LOL!

    No matter what you think of WoW or SWTOR, their trailers destroy this!  Heck, DC Universe online had a trailer cinematic that was MUCH cooler!

    Um, have to stop you right there chief!  Detroned WoW?  We'll see on September 25th!  I'd argue it hasn't even dethroned WoW right now, but we'll really see on the 25th.

    I am so horribly embarrassed. Even as a devout gw2 fan.

    Most memorable games: AoC(Tryanny PvP), RIFT, GW, GW2, Ragnarok Online, Aion, FFXI, FFXIV, Secret World, League of Legends (Silver II rank)
