Gears of War Trailers
After watching the outstanding IGN Vidcast with Phil Spencer, Peter Moore, and Seamus Blackley, I had to go back and re-watch the Gears of War Trailers which those three called a watershed moment in games marketing. I have gathered them all into a single post, the best copies I could find (playlist here). I have also added links to YouTube versions of the full songs (playlist here). I am curious and hopeful that The Coalition will release a remaster of “Mad World“. Any gamers who played the original but haven’t touched gaming in a while, would undoubtedly be hit with a wave of nostalgia if it suddenly popped up in the middle of the summer TV viewing.
I look forward to the promotional videos for Gears 4. I don’t imagine they will break with tradition.
