The Secret World Trailer: I know a British man like that.

Posted by Parabole (216 posts) -

A new trailer for The Secret World popped up and giving a new game a look is always my duty.   

  A very detailed look at a bar and we see a character drinking. So far this is really classy type of a bar and just a bloke taking it easy. For a brief moment, I'm thinking that he looks like Liam Neeson and then his cigarette lights by itself. Okay, so this game is about magic. Right when the guy in the trailer starts to make his way into the bathroom, I starting to see a resemblance with another cocky, disheveled, smoker, and Supernatural User. And just as he saddles up to the urinal, the guy next to him turns into a demon. Oh shit, that's John Constantine! 
 


That's not the case as I would have thought, as the guy from the trailer and The Secret World is called Alex McCall. On their Website, there's a character wheel and his background and attitude are almost identical to Constandtine. But The Secret world is about more than just one "Cynical and Sarcastic" British guy. The game is a huge MMO dealing with factions of groups like the Illuminati, Templars, and Dragon who battle demons across the world. I have seen snippets of this game and get interested all over again every time I hear of it. They are also the ones who put out this trailer in 2009. I'll personally look more into this game.

I just realized the guy in this trailer is named Alex MacCall. The Secret World + Alex McCall = The Secret World of Alex Mack! =)

You've cracked it! Heh, now I'm wondering if Tornquist's team was actually making some bizarre reference.
