Funny its not even a Rihanna song

iXenon1881d ago

The article mentions who the song belongs to and that Rihanna is only featured on it. Despite that, it's still an odd mix

I just watched the trailer and I can't see what's wrong with it...Do the lyrics not tie into the theme/gameplay of Battlefield? Do the potential players of this game feel that their masculinity is challenged because they listened to a Rihanna hook during a preview of their favorite title?

I hope they use Trinidad James - All Gold Everything just to piss off the world with their next trailer lol.

When I think of war and death I don't think of rap or hip hop, I think of hard rock or heavy metal.

It's unbelievable how much of an issue this has become when the hook fits the game perfectly.

"Feel it comin' in the air
Hear the screams from everywhere
I'm addicted to the thrill
It's a dangerous love affair
Can't be scared when it goes down
Got a problem, tell me now
Only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this town tonight...
Is who's gonna run this town tonight...
We gonna run this town"

Are air battles not a part of Battlefield?
Are we not "addicted" to the game?
When we get online, don't we all just have one thing on our minds? and is it not who da f*ck is gonna run this this map? town? or what ever?

That's great and there's nothing wrong with that, as long as you recognize that this is "your personal preference", out of the nearly 8 billion people on this earth.

Song fits well with the trailer. People who are hating obviously are too picky. It's just a trailer guys, not every Modern War Shooter trailer should have Rolling Stones, or The Who lol.

So COD fans with an outdated engine have to resort to nitpicking songs that actually fit the theme?

nukeitall1881d ago

The song is a little out of place primarily because I heard it so many times on the radio and totally don't associate it with war.

However, it is a good fit so don't know what the bruhahaha is all about.

What happened to you?

Your comments get worse by the day!

People will complain about anything for the sake of complaining. It really isn't even that serious, the song fit the trailer well

Ser1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

A hip h(p)op track in an FPS trailer? Move along, nothing out of the ordinary here.

I do wish DICE, EA, or whoever gets to choose the music, would just leave rap and hip hop out of these trailers. First it was 99 Problems, and now we get Rihanna? Lame.
