What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

As someone who is admittedly not artistic in the slightest (outside of music), I can still say that I would have done a better job than that with only a $500 budget.

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

Just decided not to completely judge it on one view where I didn't know what to expect. Now I'm catching things I didn't notice.

 

The spraypaint, for example, it starts being written on the wall but the latter part seems to be written in air.

I'm convinced that Anet (or NCsoft) must've hired an advertising firm to do this trailer. However, it still bothers me that Anet saw the trailer and approved????

This has gotten to be the worst MMO trailer I've ever seen. I just don't get it. My real question is: did Anet or NCsoft ever use the focus group by testing the trailer to see whether they like it or not? *mindboggle*

However, GW2 totally rocks!!

Hahah. Oh my, bold move there. 

I don't know, I sort of like that it's got this 90s dark-yet-oddly-naive vibe.

It's like Max Headroom crashed into Dungeons & Dragons and both decided "it was good". It's like BloodNet and Dreamweb are viable storyteling again. It's like we're actually buying into the movia "Hackers".

 

Meh, I just miss the 90s a bit, I guess. Good music, good books, good movies - and definitely good gaming! :)

Well if there's any proof that GW2 fans don't immediately praise everything ANet does, it'd be this.  Not everyone hates it, but almost.  As a fan of any game, I want new players to be brought into the game by showing them what it does or doesn't do, not people spray painting a wall.

While I think subtle aspects like that can be very cool, they generally don't work with advertising.  How many people are going to watch a commercial over and over?  Especially if they don't have any knowledge or interest in the game?

 

To me, those subtle things work great in picture art, music, and movies that you might be inclined to consume repeatedly.  Commercials rarely, if ever, fall into that category.

 

So, if that ad is really to get new people to buy the game, I call it a fail already.  My earlier idea about showing off the beautiful world and great gameplay would be generic, but much better suited to that purpose, I think.

Come on, now, I can see right through you... Your nickname being Volkon and your avatar a kitty walking on water, it's obvious you're just jealous of the guy walking on fire! 

May I say "element-envy"? :P

The game is actually pretty pretty good, the trailer not so much.

I think it honestly must have been targeted at 13 year olds with the stupid spray paint crap.

So, this is the Elementalist trailer? . BTW, Volkon, thanks for that post abou the smoke dragon. Just saw it.

Also, i can understand the idea of people starting the revolution and whatnot. The guy incased in stone actually made some degree of sense because it felt like he was a gamer.

But, a random girl, gas mask and nose pierding doign grafity in the night? A bunch of teens walking on hot coal? A chick swiming underwater? This, IMO, is what's wrong is not artistic at all. It actually feels like it's trageting a bunch a tweens trying to be "cool" and "edgy".

Oh, well, atleast i agree with others that the game is good, fro what i tried in beta.

that was...odd... not sure i see what the point of doing the live action part was at all...

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

I'm thinking ANET should just stick to letting the fans get the word out.

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

I agree it's too subtle for an ad, if that's what it is. At two minutes long it won't be airing on TV. What I'm seeing now:

 

Maybe... earth, breaking free of the old... air, rebelling against the old... Fire, trying something new, introduce the dragon in the smoke... Water, emerging into the new?

Then Zhaitan to make you poop yourself.
 

 

Yeah, too subtle for an ad or even a trailer. Taken out of that context I like the messaging behind it.

Personally I'd have left the beggining until 00:36 (the man turned to stone analogy can work) then skip to 1:21 (woman swimming and then coming out of the water), and left the rest of it out.

The beggining might work as an interest opener, and I really liked the woman coming out of the water, disolving to the in-game characters walking out of the water - Zaithan appearing - characters charging - zaithan flyby. The rest of the live action sequences just felt out of place, specially the girl with the graffitti and the gas mask. Actually, I do belive the gas mask was a big thing of me finding it out of place, since I was playing TSW before GW2, and gas masks are a big part of the illuminati uniform.

What can men do against such reckless hate?

Poorly made stab at WoW's hegemony over the genre. Dripping with pathos and cheaply exploitative. I love the game but am deeply disappointed with this crap. They should sue whoever they outsorced this thing to.

They have a great game and they should have stuck to that. Wtf are they blabbering about some revolution/occupy whatever thing? That'll leave gamers puzzled and angsty youth offended (as well as the rest of us pissed about real world problems.) Utter fail. It's like using hunger in Africa to sell a Restaurant tycoon game...

I disagree .. I only agree they got the earth segment right .. then it should have been .. Washing away the old ( water ), The wind of change ( air ), and rebirth ( Fire / Phoenix) ..
