GoW:UE Regeared For A New Generation
Microsoft slipped up. They made a promotional video by editing clips from the beautifully redone cutscenes of Gears of War:Ultimate Edition, putting them to the Gary Jules song and then called it the Mad World Launch Trailer. It is unfortunate because the original Mad World trailer was a mini-movie and was unprecedented in advertising in the gaming industry. When I first saw the title of this new trailer, I was thrilled to think that the original had been revamped. It starts out the same, but then just turns into a montage of various cutscene footage we have already seen. Very beautiful, but so off the mark of what should be. It is such a squandered opportunity, that I can’t help thinking The Coalition must still have the redone mini-movie waiting in the wings. Anyway, the song is good, and the clips are pretty. So that can be enjoyed. Just don’t watch it thinking you are going to see that iconic trailer redone for the One.
By my calculations, the Coalition still has three videos left in their remastering series. Look for them in this thread when they are released.
