Mobile Showdown - Game Trailers

Posted by Chris Hall on February 8th, 2010

Game trailers are serious business. The decisions that you come to on a daily basis sometime come down to whether or not a quality game trailer has been made. Even if you don't particularly care for trailers, I watch them religiously and often highlight apps that put in that extra bit of effort.

Last week I went ahead and put in my best trailer ever vote for Chillingo's newest title, The Hero. Perhaps my vote was premature. This week I'm not even going to leave it up to me. Let the readers be the judge! This weeks showdown is between two game trailer powerhouses. On one side, we have Chillingo's trailer of the hero, which is still all sorts of amazing to me. On the other side, we have ustwo's trailer for ..™. They pride themselves on their trailers for the entire .™ coolectable series, but I personally like the ..™ trailer the best. Watch both trailers after the break and let us know who wins... I have to know!


The Hero - Possibly The Best Trailer Ever

Posted by Chris Hall on February 4th, 2010

As you may know by know, I have this obsession with high quality game trailers. Chillingo's new trailer for Traplight Games new app "The Hero" just obliterated the rest of the iPhone trailer competition, with what could be the best promo video for a game since the commercials for the original Gears of War. Enjoy!

According to the superhero evaluation on Traplight's website, The Hero "reveals clear signs of Super Human Stress Disorder (SHSD) caused by exposure to threats such as meteors, zombies, UFO's, ninjas, giant insects and falling babies. Constant impacts and flying at high speeds have also caused micro tears in brain tissue, possibly explaining momentary episodes of disorientation. SHSD is a condition caused by both, psychological and physiological elements. Condition can be summarized as mental breakdown caused by physical stress combined with inflated ego and a sense of omnipotence."

I can't wait to play. Expect "The Hero" to take over the App Store later this month.
