A trailer to advertise a trailer...damn thats hot lol
Commented on 2011-09-23 22:44:28
haha wtf?! That so didn't fit the trailer in any shape, more like some bad Youtube music video.

But hey this is EA marketing, remember Medal of Honor and Linkin Park? ugh

They should go with "I got 99 problems but COD aint one..." that would be better haha

I have already witnessed the full version of this :P
I was at the EuroGamer Expo in London yesterday and got to see it before the rest of the world at the Battlefield 3 Developer Session with Karl-Magnus Troedsson, the VP & General Manager at DICE.
I must say I felt quite privileged and the full version is quite something to behold, maybe it was just the sound system and cinema display but oh well.

I don't like Jay-Z or that sort of music but it did look and sound pretty cool I guess, EA's mainstream marketing for you.

and they do add a sneaky jab at COD in there ;)

HATE JAY-Z!!!!!!!!!!!! but i love the guy who produced that track, total LEGEND <3

Other than that, wack!

Trailers like this can only cause harm to the promotion of Battlefield 3. Screw you Jay-Z.

Nothing wrong with the track,lol.

It's all about the game.

This game destroys every other fps/mp game there is.


COD will die a mighty death.

Yeah, reminds me of the awful COD eminem trailer. Odd choice indeed.

The game is set mostly in the middle east, I take it? So what's wrong with having some kind of music from that region? Honestly, every time rap is used for this sort of thing is just completely cringeworthy.

They should've used this instead:

The moment I read 'Jay-Zed', I knew not to download this. Thanks for the warning.
Commented on 2011-09-24 14:34:02
Isn't Jay Z a voice actor in Gears of War 3 as well? What the hell?

Nope. He isn't.

What´s up with the hatred? This is not Youtube here. Leave please.
Commented on 2011-09-25 21:54:17
Meh, think people need to broaden their musical horizons. Love this track.
Commented on 2011-09-25 22:55:46
They should just use their own music tracks from the game and nothing else.
Commented on 2011-09-25 23:59:20
I'm not into rap heavily either, but it's really not as bad as it your all making it out to be.

About the game

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Oh, and hipster 'dudebro' topknot wearing scientists that invented the main threat. As fucking if! (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite *i should say 'became' redundant. That's the thing: the game was promising at the start until it just became a case of repetitive chore. (5 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite save for the fire arrow, merchants were useless, characters boring as fuck, and main quest chucking all the info at you at once near the end. (7 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I played the game on hard. All of the game's initial good points because redundant after a certain point in the game. I never once found the need for any of the elemental armour or weapons (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Thunderjaws giving you jip? No sweat, pal. Just shoot the bastards disc cannon off with a single shock arrow and use it against him. Easy as pie. (10 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite sharp shot arrows, fire and shock. You don't need anything else. Every machine's strength is negated by those because they are weak to every one of those. (11 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Na, it doesn't. The initial excitement of coming across vicious machines in the wild that can kill you in one hit washes away once you get even the most basic of armour (12 minutes ago)
