Trailer Trash #3

PDC World Championship Darts 2009 - Trailer

When did professional darts players attain to the status of WWE stars, playing to stadiums full of screaming fans and strutting into the place with an effing intro?



 Check out the swagger on this schlub:


Above: You know he was just hitting that up in his room

Bluster aside, there is no way that holding a Wii remote like a dart is “realistic.” That’s just bad ergonomics. An actual dartboard takes up less space than your TV and Wii, plus it is more fun to play. Even more worrisome: there’s a year in the title, which can only mean that annual installments are planned. Gaaaaaaah!


EA Sports Active - Journal 



Push button make thing better. Getting mainstream America into gaming means tapping into the body image obsession (and inevitable self loathing) prevalent in our culture. Enter EA Sports Active, with its cloyingly motivational “Journal” feature to dole out shiny medals when you meet its boilerplate nutrition and exercise goals.


Free Realms - Launch trailer



You know what would appeal to everybody? Everything! Free Realms is Sony’s unweildy amalgamation of fantasy MMO, card battler and casual games portal. We think the opening shot of the trailer, where we’re treated to a face full of flying squirrel ass, sums up the whole thing rather nicely. They should have just stopped there.

    SwampRock, seriously dude did you even watch the damn trailer? What the hell is "clunky" looking about the controls? The way he moves and attacks is exactly the opposite of clunky, it's one of the main reasons it looks so damn good because it looks so smooth. How the hell can controls even look "clunky" when you weren't controlling it? Also they look realistic, which is the HUGE problem prototype has in my oppinion, none of that games moves or scenes for that matter even look real, if you want to call that "stylized" then fine, but I call it looking like crap, and just plain messy. Sorry for spazzing out lol , but damn man watch the trailer at least.

    Infamous looks like total crap. The controls look clunky as opposed to prototype where all the actions look stylized and smooth, whereas this trailer, I get the impression of Niko bellic for some reason. And the action looks quite sparse for infamous

    WTF?

    Lets Tap made fiery horror erupt out of each and every oriface on my body, including my pores. Coincidentally, Gary Busey and his descendants should be removed from the gene pool for the sake of the human race.

    InFamous looks incredibly boring, blue electricity from hands = sh*t game

    The InFamous trailer was badass. Remided me of Force Unleashed, which is just as badass as this. Battlestations could be a bit better on the selling point though. Looking forward to Bad Company 2, which will be so sweeeeet.

    Battlestations confuses me. Isn't the point of most games to stay ALIVE? Historical accuracy is good and all, but I don't see flying a kamikaze mission as a good selling point. I can kill myself in plenty of other, and most likely better, games.

    Hey gmilf17, u gonna throw a spaz again? These trailers suck. These games are doomed to die.
  • MissingLink101 - May 1, 2009 2:02 a.m.

    They've really made an awesome trailer for infamous but if I'm gonna get the new version of the (last succesful incarnation) Crackdown idea, I'll be heading for Prototype.
  • crabbo - May 1, 2009 1:28 a.m.

    Speaking as somebody who owns a PS3, I think the inFamous trailer looks pretty bland. The combat looks really uninspired. Other trailers showcase the urban explorer aspect, which makes the game look much more appealing. Face it.. The combat isn't going to be inFamous' strong point.

    the infamous one looked bad ass

    FIRST I LOVE TRASHY TRAILERS
  • Teh_Ty - May 3, 2009 3:06 p.m.

    InFamous looks kinda cool, but I'm looking forward to prototype more.

    Sherlock Holms vs Jack the Ripper side effects: schizophrenia.

    is the battle stations:pacific just about being a kamikaze pilot? if thats it then i am not sold
  • nadrewod999 - May 2, 2009 3:57 p.m.

    GamesRadar, I look forward to seeing how you review a game while eating your hat (hint: read end of last page of article).
  • Jedipimp0712 - May 1, 2009 9:25 p.m.

    what the fuck is the point of the Kamikazi game? i dont know if its just me, but does that seem REALLY un-patriotic or what? and when you do run into an American boat, what the fuck is that accomplishing? also, that Infamous trailer does look amazing, is there something that games radar is holding out on us for what the gameplay is like? cuz i thought it looked bad ass
  • wolfwing187 - May 1, 2009 5:24 p.m.

    i play free realms.....i think its cool.
  • Howetzer - May 1, 2009 1:09 p.m.

    Man, I can't wait for InFamous! I don't know how you guys can't be anything but completely psyched about InFamous! That trailer is just like all the other InFamous trailers, friggen Awesome! As for prototype, good luck to all of you who buy it, but sorry looks like complete junk to me, if you have a PS3 I think you should at least do yourselves the favor of getting InFamous, the game is 10 times what protocrap is....see what I did there kids? lol Anyways nice article, but I personally don't see InFamous fitting in to the trailer trash section myself.
