New Bad Company Trailers Take on Gears of War and Rainbow Six

Already having slapped Metal Gear Solid right upside its head in hilarious fashion, two new trailers for Battlefield: Bad Company have been released, each poking fun at another big name game. I’d recommend watching this Gears of War trailer before watching the trailer above as a refresher so that you know what’s being made fun of. As for the Rainbow Six one, it’s simply a matter of having played any R6 game or ever having seen SWAT-style hand gestures being made.

The Gears one was much funnier in my opinion, but they’re both quite good. As I remarked previously, hopefully the game’s humor lives up to this marketing campaign; I haven’t played enough of the game yet to tell if it has, but I’ll say this: I haven’t laughed out loud at anything in the game through the first level, so take that as you will.

If EA spent as much effort on the actual game as they did on these videos, it should be fantastic. I haven’t seen humor that good in a shooter since NOLF 1 & 2 and Armed and Dangerous.

I love the demo, been playing it for a week straight. I cannot wait for this title to hit the shelves.

This humor is present during game play, even multilayer (“The gold is MINE!…er..i mean ours..” when winning a game), and it’s refreshing to see humor in something as serious as war. I think the point of these videos is to remind every company out there making games that competition is still around. The more the competitive the gaming industry is, the faster we’re going to see more quality titles coming out; let’s face it, that’s great news.

hmmmm, makes me wonder if badcompany.ea.com was intentional.

Anyways, I think these latest trailers are genius, and poo on any others who disagree with me, not like I can do anything about it, nor can they :twisted:

I am gonna love this game!
