Dumbass trailer

I went to the website lookin for a picture of Keith, cos I thought he looked like Gene from God Hand. There's not a very good picture of him on Giantbomb so y'know.

Go to MULTIMEDIA, and there's a trailer that 1) doesn't show what's good about the game at all, and 2) spoils pretty much everything in the game. It must've bin made by a third-party PR team or something, because what the hell.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Whoever worked on it doesn't know the basics of making a good trailer.

Meh, the cuts are so fast that you won't really be spoiled unless you know what you're looking for or you pay attention to every detail while pausing the video.  A lot of game trailers have some clips that can potentially be spoilers, but the editing makes it so that you won't really know that if you haven't played (or watched) the game before.
 
And there's not much to show in a game like Deadly Premonition.  They showed enough of the combat sequences, and that's basically all they really needed to to give the viewer a feel for what the game actually is.  What I don't like is that they made it seem as if this game has a constant dark mood and is focused on its violence, which it is not.

If there wasn't a GB ER of this you would have no idea what any of that meant, and would be intrigued. It actually isn't a bad trailer imo

Yeah you're probably right. It would spoil things if you'd just started the game or were halfway through it though, and it does make the game look like Saw or something.
