games like this should really come in at a lower launch day price say 45-50$ to spark interest as a budget title.

At first I thought this was going to be a really poor implementation of the idea, but after watching the E3 walkthrough at GameTrailers I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. It might be a really fun game after all.

What DID it win at E3?

As soon as I saw the game, I thought Far Cry. They really don't have to hype the game as much as they tried to in the trailer. It just came off as desparate and begging for attention when the guy was boasting about the E3 awards. It's funny, I haven't heard much at all about this game. I won't judge the game too early, but it will get lost in the larger library of fps on the 360 now and the near future.

This trailer was hilarious - had me in stitches by the end.

This trailer was pure, comedic gold. When the voice over started at the beginning of the video, I was thinking, "where did they get this announcer from, the office mail room?" However, it by the time the video gets to the two guys giving each other the high-five, it was quite apparent the intent of the trailer was spoofing the uber-bravado, machismo schtick that most game trailers (pick your testosterone dripping, macho game of choice) go for in their trailers - and they were doing a pretty good job of it. Even had the faux, "we won some meaningless awards at E3," bit towards the end.

Very funny stuff, I really enjoyed the fact the publishers chose not to take the entire macho trailer stuff too seriously. Definitely got my attention and put Raven Squad on my radar. Besides, I am always looking for a new twist on the strategy game genre, and FPS/RTS with a comedic twist, should prove interesting.

It's not just the trailer, the whole game is supposedly inspired by over the top B production action movies.
