Greatest trailer ever?

Did anyone else get chills down their spine while watching the "rendezvous" trailer

A great poem by Alan Seeger

#3 Edited by Player1 (3856 posts) -

Yes I did for sure. It was my theme at gamespot. Heres the poem from the trailer (not the full version)


I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade
It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath
I have a rendezvous with Death
And I to my pledged word am true
I shall not fail that Rendezvous

not bad, its in the same vain as the mad world one. But i dont know why he dragged the body all that way seemed like there was others he could have used.

Yeah, it was pretty awesome

Yeah, it was pretty awesome

The rendezvous trailer is my favorite.

#8 Posted by Aaron_G (1611 posts) -

I thought it was a pretty good trailer. 

#9 Posted by Warihay (481 posts) -

It was good but Mad World is still the best.

#10 Posted by DarkLegend (1387 posts) -

The first time, the second, you name it. The chill never stops.

That trailer was brilliant, and kind of made me believe that this time the stroy will be good, especially since Josh Ortega is saying that people at Epic cried, yes, cried

#12 Posted by Judoka (56 posts) -

Loved it.  I kind of caught me off guard with the poem. I liked how he grabbed the locust and "mushed" his face.

#13 Posted by Kenzo287 (722 posts) -

i liked the mad world one from the first they should do another one

#14 Edited by samcotts (2258 posts) -

Just incase somebody hasn't hasn't seen it.
It is one of my favourite trailers come to think of it. I remember watching it through the live feed of E3, and I was like "OMG, this is epic"!

Yeah that poem sent Chills down my spine.

#16 Posted by Player1 (3856 posts) -

actually now that some of you saw it I did like mad world better. God gears has some sick trailers

Gears of War has always had great trailers. I loved the Mad World one and now the Rendezvous trailer.

#19 Posted by Ma7moud (805 posts) -

It was awesome but I liked Bare your teeth trailer more.

#20 Posted by Ziek (2 posts) -

Hell yeah.  I'm playing through Gears 1 for the first time and it's fucking epic.

#21 Posted by scfan3 (27 posts) -

I have to agree....that trailer was epic.  I finally got around to preordering the limited edition online since i had the EXACT store credit amount on my edge card for it.  I need to stop going to gamestop >_>.

Dark night trailer

#23 Posted by SSbabel (1141 posts) -

Does anyone know if can actually use the locus a shields? because if you can thats so dope.

#24 Posted by Bennyishere (1685 posts) -

The voice clip is awesome, and the part where the Locust turns its mini-gun was very cool. Still, it didn't have the same impact on me as the trailer for Gears of War 1.

I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air-
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair.

It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath-
It may be I shall pass him still.
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope of battered hill,
When Spring comes round again this year
And the first meadow-flowers appear.

God knows 'twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down,
Where love throbs out in blissful sleep,
Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath,
Where hushed awakenings are dear...
But I've a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this year,
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.

yes, you can use them as meat shields
#27 Posted by BlackCoffee (81 posts) -

#28 Posted by AG912 (20 posts) -

Damn fine trailer, that's what it is.

#29 Posted by tec3297 (1170 posts) -

I still think the teaser trailer was pretty awesome.

#30 Posted by REforever101 (258 posts) -

I liked it, but i thought the mad world one was better

however, this one is more related to the actual feel of the game

#31 Posted by Hulk (428 posts) -

Hulk like trailer but Hulk only ever get excited over gameplay videos.

#32 Posted by InnerBlueAbyss (125 posts) -

The FF7 Tech Demo Trailer did it for me

#33 Posted by shadowjak (456 posts) -

The trailer was great, but not nearly the greatest.

#34 Edited by youstolemykill (79 posts) -

Trailer was really awesome. Sent chills down my spine. Mad World still was better, but Marcus running with the Locus, with the drums beating. Awesome.

#35 Posted by OGCartman (4354 posts) -

Yes i did, it was nuts

Why is everone forgetting about the trailer for DUKE NUKEM TRILOGY its the greatest most awsome most spectacular trailer ever!!!

#40 Posted by pwnmaster3001 (76 posts) -

it was one of the best trailer of E3 for me. The Prince of Persia and God of War 3 trailers had it beat...

Better than RE5, Mirror's Edge, and Fallout 3 trailers

I was smiling during the whole thing.
