    And here I thought they were actually doing something altruistic, well a coporations version of altrusitic anyways. Having giveaways is enough for people to show up, give the free food to those in need. Calling this a Food Truck Campaign is misleading.

    Really your hating on a PR campaign for not being a feed the needy campaign? You need your priorities fixed

    This kind of marketing makes no sense to me. They are not selling horker stew. Just release gameplay videos focusing on pve, dungeons, pvp and improtant game details. The internet will do your marketing for you if the game doesn't suck. Seriously an Elder Scrolls food truck campaign? WTF.

    Interesting marketing. ES themed snacks and food items?

    Wonder if they will have any actual gameplay video or even a playable demo?

    I guess it fits ESO's Themepark style. Empty calorie fast-food on a Roach Coach.

     

    Shame as the Elder Scrolls IP fits so much better to a Full 7 Course Meal Sandpark.

    Well looks like I'll have to show up in Boulder when they stop by :)

    Also to the negative posts....this is why some people can't have nice things.

    This is the kind of PR stunt you do when you're terrified to show the actual product.

    oO... I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not and that scares me a bit lol... I've been on this site for to long.

    I find it mildly insulting they anrt going to their own con, Quakecon.

    I will not play a game with a cash shop ever again. A dev job should be to make the game better not make me pay so it sucks less.

    I know right, they did the same thing with skyrim and look how that.......oh wait

    Maybe they should worry more about making the game better and less on stupid crap. Or is that "too hard" for the company as well....

    I work in Boulder Co and you can be sure I will be there for free food and stuff. Boulder also has a plethora of homeless people. You can bet soon as word gets out there is free food, there will be droves of homless people that love online gaming.

    After a year of bug fixes and content additions/graphical updates (mostly done by players) Skyrim is idd a decent game and should be definitely used as an example for a well made product .. OH WAIT !

    You know most companies would actually do a tour with their...PRODUCT...for PR. Guess they are realizing their target base is older DaoC players so they are trying to get humanitarians into it...either way, the offical Skyrim and Oblivion forums as well as the Nexus is still filled with people pissed at the lore changes, forced factions, faction based zones, non-open world, limited race/faction options...and crap RvR style limited PvP which is smacks of a NON-TES game.

    This is the kind of comment you make when you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. This isn't the first time they have done something like this. My friends in Seattle said the Skyrim food...thing....they did was really cool and fun. And we all know Skyrim was just awful amirite?

    You mean the game that they released broken on PS3, hoped no one would notice, then left hanging for months on whether patches and DLC would ever be released?  Yeah, that went well.

    Depends on if you got the working one or the completely broken one that even now still has quests that can't be completed over a year after release.
