This trailer is actually reversed, i have watched the normal trailer and the reversed one makes more sense, this trailer is really well done but i will admit i did struggle to watch the last segment of the reversed trailer, i know its not real but i really struggled to watch the end and know why they tried to ban the trailer, but i will say this it really is well put together

I have no idea how the game's going to turn out, but they knocked it out of the park with that trailer.

Yeah i have no idea how the game's going to be but the trailer itself is a masterpiece and a stroke of genius, as its the very first game trailer to have made me heartbroken and i can understand peoples criticisms of it. If you watch the normal trailer, i don't find it as heartbreaking as the girl comes back alive, but the reverse is, its really clever on how they did. Also the music helps.

Erm Rodo its sad because of the little girl and what happens to her and what her dad does to her at the end, i know its not real but come on that dosen't move you in anyway?? , its also shocking as normally things like that involving children in any media, certainly in the UK aren't aloud.

I'm sorry, there are lines that shouldn't be crossed, and I'm giving it some leeway since it's probably a survival horror game, but that was wrong.  The whole thing plays like they are TRYING! to get free publicity from certain people at FNC and other media.
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

No, it's just that people are too god damned sensitive when it comes to stuff like this. Just because a kid dies in it doesn't mean they were trying to get publicity about it. It's not like kids never die in real life, anyway.

If 'depicting what would actually happen in a zombie apocalypse in the middle of a gigantic boom of media about the zombie apocalypse' is wrong, then baby, I don't want to be right.

What's an FNC?

Wait have you not seen a survival horror movie in the last, I dunno, 30 years?  That or the Walking Dead on AMC?  I mean sure its probably the most charged game trailer to that effect I've seen, and they should be commended for actually making an emotional story based trailer rather than a goofy shoot em up, but they aren't breaking new ground when it comes to the genre.

I've watched the trailer, very well made, its hard to find a decent zombie game so I hope the game turns to be a good one.

Its just like Halo trailers that aren't actually anything like the game beyond maybe characters and setting.

Except we have no way of knowing that yet. Not everybody ascribes to Bungie's bizarre definition of hype.

I like it. It isn't really crossing boundaries that haven't been crossed before, and was well done enough to grab my attention even aside from the obvious "HAY LOOK" gimmick. Not a big fan of Zombie games, normally, but I'll keep my eye on this one.

Looks like they'll be focusing on details? Anyway, if the game is at all the in same calibre then it'll definitely be interesting.

  • A one hit wonder, you still want to touch this.
Anyone who has watched resident evil apocalypse may remember the zombie children. Kids in zombie movies, meh. People who have watched and liked resident evil apocalypse and don't like this game trailer simply because of the fact it has something bad happening to a child is a double take.

I guess it'll be something between Resident Evil and L4D. But the trailer is very cool, especially when you watch it backwards :yes:

I doubt that they can recreate even a tiny bit of this (in the game, that is).

Uh, what's supposed to be the problem with that trailer? That one of the people who die is a child? That's surely one of the things I'll never be able to understand, and sounds like extreme hypocrisy if it's coming from someone who doesn't mind the same thing depicted as happening to adults.

I guess I don't care much for zombie splatters as such, but breaking stupid taboos in a relatively tasteful manner is definitely a plus. Even when it's not something that hasn't occasionally been done before.

Things said there are kind of a no brainer, and the point of the trailer was not to show gameplay, though I can see how it could be misunderstood.
For me it was seeing a trailer for a game that 'might' focus a bit more on character and story than other zombie games.
