I would...personally I hate all of these "trailers for trailers" that people are releasing these days. That defeats the purpose of the actual trailer.

Exactly. I don't see the point of doing it. :p

Weemanply109 28-04-12 16:06

It's for hype, obviously and it's clearly working, hence why it's a trend in the industry.

I hate it. It kind of takes away from the surprise in my opinion. When I see a trailer I want to be in awe instead of already expecting what it will look like, ya know? Trailers are so short to begin with and adding a teaser before it just ruins it.

I find it absolutely disgusting, that along with all these DLC that are already included in the games, but can only be activated after your purchase an activation :o. Oh and I also hate deluxe editions of new albums, what happened to making a complete record from start to finish? Every company/artist tries to get more money out of anything that they can, it's sickening.

This! :tmb:

I don't hate teaser trailer cause it actually gives me a glimpse of what is coming in full trailer. I don't watch teaser of titles which is not on my most anticipated game list. But I can't resist myself from watching my most anticipated titles. I would love to give some bucks to watch a TR teaser trailer. I so do want to see it. :jmp:

motoleo 28-04-12 17:21

A "trailer for a trailer" ? You mean teaser trailers?

Those are not trailers for trailers, is just a shorter trailer. :eyeroll:

_Awestruck_ 28-04-12 17:29

First off, if you're going to try your hand at being condescending, make sure you actually use the eyeroll smiley.

And second off, no. This is what I'm talking about.


Something used very commonly now a days, which is for lack of a better term, a trailer for a trailer.

No, a trailer of a trailer, taking clips from a trailer to tease the trailer with a trailer.

Phlip 28-04-12 17:40

Teaser trailer and trailers for trailers are different, IMO.

How about this...

Another Facebook Like campagn, maybe for the official website this time, and it we reach a certain number of likes they'll release a screencap from the trailer?

I prefer it this way - we get the trailer.

Okay what if CD release a screenshot of the game before the trailer comes out for us?

Lukass 28-04-12 19:43

Omg, they gave us peeks last year and everyone was ****ting his/her pants and now, all of a sudden everybody is against any teaser? :rolleyes:

An teaser image I wouldn't mind (that doesn't involve any Facebook crap), but no teaser videos or anything like that.

Rai 28-04-12 19:54

I want a teaser screen. Please please please please please please please. Pleeeeease, Crystal.

Do I sound like a 5year old? Good. :p.

Weemanply109 28-04-12 20:06

I'm not against any teasers. I don't care. I just want something right now.

I always wondered what a trailer for a trailer would look like.

It was pretty cool.

As much as I want something right now...in 33 days I'm dead sure we'll have a TR trailer...

4-ish almost 5 weeks.

Holy frig.

Well doesn't that kind of contradict the first point you tried to make?

:'(

_Awestruck_ 28-04-12 20:14

It is fast approaching, and at this point I do feel like this is what we're gonna be waiting for. It better be worth the almost 365 day wait. :p

larafan25 28-04-12 20:15

I can feel how intense this is going to be.

There are so many details we could catch in the trailer, characters, items, HUD (?), sprinting, axe-climbing, aiming, jumping, the SIZE of the hubs? New hubs!?

I will replay the crap out of the trailer, I'm sure.

There's bound to be so many things to see in the footage. o>o

Well... um.. if they took out the last bit, (the full trailer date) it would have been a teaser trailer more or less. :o

Mikky 28-04-12 20:27

Even if we get nothing in May, E3 is just one month away. Ah, the waiting is almost over. :')

I can't wait for the trailer and E3, but I'm less excited now than I was *for example* three months ago. It's probably because I'm so tired of all this. I just for some reason don't feel any hype :/

larafan25 28-04-12 20:34

I feel the hype, it's coming.

If I re-watch stuff, and if they start talking about the trailer, I'll flip out. :/

I believe all that hype will return as soon as you see the game in action. :D

Lukass 28-04-12 20:36

I was watching the gameplay today to build some hype, but it didn't happen. I feel like I don't care anymore :/
