I actually enjoy those non-game related trailers. They're pieces of art and fun to look at and if I want to see gameplay I go and watch a video/stream.
ooohhh....can I possibly be the first to comment? :)
The COH thing reminds me of all the protests that popped up in SWG before the NGE was going to be released. I remember participating in a huge one on Tatooine the night before the NGE was patched in. :(
As for SWTOR, while I was really excited before the game released, but after two different attempts to play the game and neither time making it past lvl 20 unfortunately no matter what they do I just don't see myself playing it again. The game is WAY too linear and most of the quests seem like they are the exact same thing just in a different area.
Was that Andy McDowell (the woman coming out of the water) in the GW2 commercial? Honestly until the end, it seems like more of a ad for TSW rather than GW2.
On a complete side bar, is it me or did Pokket not say "awesome" once in this video? Only reason I mention it was that someone else had mentioned in another post that her overuse of the word detracts from what she is trying to say.
Anyway good job Pokket.
The Four Cats
Four men were bragging about how
smart their cats were.
The first man was an Engineer,
The second man was an Accountant,
The third man was a Chemist, and
The fourth man was a Government
To show off, the Engineer called his cat,
"T-square, do your stuff."
T-square pranced over to the desk, took
out some paper and pen and promptly
drew a circle, a square, and a triangle.
Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.
But the Accountant said his cat could do
better. He called his cat and said,
"Spreadsheet, do your stuff."
Spreadsheet went out to the kitchen
and returned with a dozen cookies.
He divided them into 4 equal piles of
Everyone agreed that was good.
But the Chemist said his cat could do
better. He called his cat and said,
"Measure, do your stuff."
Measure got up, walked to the fridge,
took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce
glass from the cupboard and poured
Exactly 8 ounces without spilling a drop
into the glass.
Everyone agreed that was pretty good.
Then the three men turned to the
Government Employee and said,
"What can your cat do?"
The Government Employee called his
cat and said, "Coffee Break, do your
Coffee Break jumped to his feet.......
Ate the cookies........
Drank the milk........
Sh*t on the paper.......
Screwed the other three cats.......
Claimed he injured his back while doing
Filed a grievance report for unsafe
Put in for Workers Compensation..........
Went home for the rest of the day on sick
AND THAT, MY FRIEND IS WHY
EVERYONE WANTS TO WORK
FOR THE GOVERNMENT!!
@Talula Rose, change your comment to something on-topic with the video or risk a mod deleting it for you (and possibly earning yourself a warning).
I lol'ed at your Dead-Island slip-in when you were talking about misleading trailers :P!
Generally, yea people hated the hell out of that GW2 trailer, and the video for the new SWTOR mission was the dumbest thing i'd ever seen. Their story guy goes into how "You're being dropped into a scenario you really have no idea of what's happening", and then the other devs literally walk through each encounter in that mission completely destroying any mystery that might have been there.
Essentially, a #1 tell-tale sign as to why SWTOR did so poorly, the devs just don't "get it", and they seem as if they're so new to making MMO's it's not even funny anymore.
Lastly, I also feel that City of Heroes is a gonner :(. Was a fun product, but they haven't tried to even maintain it over the years. It needed a graphics update 5 years ago, and it needed some heavy revamping to help it age. However, it has aged so poorly it's not even worth going back to even to protest anymore unfortunately.
Honestly when I watched the Guild Wars 2 trailer for the first time, I checked the link and as the trailer progressed I thought (jokingly) "Why did Anet make a trailer for Funcom's The Secret World". If it wasn't for the video at the end I would have just thought they took a TSW trailer and slapped a NCSoft Logo on it.
Still for a trailer I don't think it's fail, at the very least it will cause someone to say "wtf" and google the game and even if that's all that happens it's still mission accomplished.
I want to beat that GW2 trailer to death with a sack of puppies.
Do you have any idea how long that would take?
And I would enjoy every yelping, squishy moment of it.
GW2 ain't that heavy
thank goodness it's loads of fun though
@FadingBomb, your CoH remarks are kinda clueless. There was a graphics update, you know? The game also managed to pump out updates (at an average of three a year, mostly free), despite sometimes having limited developer numbers. Content was being continually added, and the quality was generally improving with each one. Etc.
You don't have to like it, but misinformation is misinformation. And unlike some failed (or still operating) games, it is being killed while still profitable.
Bean counters, ugh.
what Pokket Says?
utilty tool bower and finder!
though take at the skerlout
That is about crazy, you liked the SOA fight in eternity vault?? Every time we cleared that operation about 2/3 time soa would bug out for one reason or another during the fight. I cant imagine anybody liking those odds.
Oh well I just heard it and have to say wow somebody was fighting a different soa fight than what I seen.
i thought that trailer was for tsw not gw2.
As for swtor as long as you have retards working there and idiots who wont shut up I.E james ohlen that game will never go anywhere.
Gw2 has exposed how lazy devs have become in other games
@People grow older, it's normal. Have you looked at Bradd Pitt or Jennifer Aniston of late? They totally crustied up and so will we all in due time.

Wow, Pockett just went bold there. Can't believe y ou are basically calling Tera a fail. Let's be honest...your first review of Tera (please look at Pockets first Tera review) was totally off. You turned off the game when you couldn't figure out that you needed to press F to climb a vine and said, "the combat just seems clunky, back to SWTOR for me." When Tera launched, they specifically said they had to add a ton more servers as they had far more than expected, but they also stated off the back they expect a mass server merge before long. I don't play Tera any longer just because I hated that all the pvp took place right next to safezones...I think thats a mistake mechanic for the game, as well as forcing pve to be able to get the gear and elite skills like sap for pvp. Still, the game is doing fine...the people are getting updates for pve ( don't care about that, but i'll respect that they do it). So...saying they are doing bad and making some of those accusations are just wow to me. You have guts...I work for a gaming company and I can tell you now, I would be extremely upset if you made those comments about my game with no facts to back it up. Server mergers are not facts. Also, don't pretend you played the game for a while, you openly stated when you left the game...so, no...you didn't play a while...good try though.
I actually like these videos... Not sure why loads of people bitch about them really...
Lol'd at 'dead island' 'cough' moment... I agree... quite a few games with awesome trailers, yet the game ends up being pants.
The Four Cats made my day, let’s not give a guy a warning just because his post had no direct relevance.
I think Pocket needs to plan these more, it feels too random. Now that may be the style, but I just find it a bit irritating.
"yeahh. show me the game"
I dont agree at all about the GW2 trailer. I felt they released the trailer to put forward a message about the game and they did that beautifully. i get the trailer, i get the message and i praise ArenaNet for releasing it. Stop hating. We have seen numerous gameplay videos from ArenaNet showing off all the amazing things about GW2. Let them blow your mind with something not too much related to gameplay and more about sending out a breathtaking message about the heart of GW2.
