E3 : Borderlands trailer

E3 : Borderlands trailer

The upcoming opening of the E3 is a good occasion for Gearbox to release a new trailer of Borderlands, their Diablo-like/FPS mix. The cyberpunk universe and the cell-shaded design seem to be pretty nice.

Ever since they decided to go with that stupid shader look, I've since lost interest in Borderlands. It was supposed to be a hard-edged RPG-ish survival game. Now it looks like a child's comic book. Really disappointing.

i feel you on that but when considering the depth this game has and the 4 player co-op i'll get used to it, cuz theres not one game on consoles that allows you to do what this game does.

Game looks interesting, but I need more info. I did kinda like the old look better, but I can get used to this.
Why the Gametrailers hate? Seriously, they have a decent site with a ton of videos right when they come out. This snobby, entitlement mentality of people nowadays burns me up sometimes. Now, if you are talking about the general community over there, then I can't really argue...

The problem is that they can't compress, all of their downloadable videos are blocky as hell.

Nothing is wrong with Gametrailers (except some of their community). Nothing is wrong with Gamersyde. But, I am a true fan of Gamersyde because you guys have the absolute best quality in video's and community. So I understand that one would say 'Gametrailers?'.

Look at the quality... Its HORRIBLE. Even the "High Def" videos are poor quality.

There is also the fact that they have a huge monopoly over exclusive media. which really bugs me, because I am not a fan of having that much exclusive stuff. Competition os one thing, but when you get a monopoly, everyone loses.

On here, they always give us the highest possible quality. Its not that hard to click all of 3 links to open up the video.

No, bullshit, their HD quality is HORRIBLE. Not to mention its at a MASSIVE, WHOPPING 540p.

I have to disagree with that.

I was looking forward to this title last year, until I saw some gameplay footage - I think it was at last year's E3. The visuals looked dull, generic and just plain ugly. Thankfully, the developers realised this and completely transformed the game's overall look. Now it looks original and stylish, and has triggered a lot more interest than it had done before.

A smart move on their part.

The problem with Gametrailers, is they pay big money to get exclusives on press content that should go to everyone in the press including you guys, not just directly to Viacom.

Any given day of the week, I much rather get my vids from Gamersyde, the quality is just that much better. After Gamersyde, then maybe IGN; they tend to do a pretty good job on their HD feeds. But Gametrailers is so massive, they really have to water down the quality of their content, to not keep their profit margins up. So all the best vids are usually locked down by Gametrailers as exclusives.

Normally I do not complain much about how the free market works, but for crying out loud, they are paying money for exclusive rights to what are essentially commercials. I not only think that it is very counter intuitive that so many publishers are willing to limit huge chunks of their marketing campaign to a single website, for a little extra pocket change in return. But ultimately, the rest of the free press, plus the fans get burned every time a company like Gametrailers picks stuff like this up as an exclusive.

And lets face facts, at the end of the day, Gametrailers paying for exclusivity of all the hottest trailers, keeps smaller publications like Gamersyde from ever having a fair shot of getting any larger (unless you sink to their level of morally bankrupt business practices). Considering that your product is actually better than Gametrailers, the real loss is every ones.

And for the record, I do not like it when Apple uses the same practice to get exclusive movie trailers. But at least Apple gives users the opportunity to get access to the full bit rate versions of the HD trailers - which is more than what Gametrailers does.

Thank you. Most of us appreciate it and it's certainly better than nothing!

Well said. And that is why I love Gamersyde: you will hardly ever see this kind of mature game site with such a mature audience anywhere else.

I don't want to hate but this is looking too much like Crackdown meets Mad Max now. I'm not saying it won't be fun but I am feeling like this should stayed as the teaser trailer from long ago suggested.
