The first TV spot for Dead Space 2, published by Electronic Arts.
Smithers?...uh is it me or do I not get the reference here...
It's the simpson http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_7... meaning everything is as planned
The Simpsons have been on for 20+ seasons, how do not recognize the reference? lol :D
Nice. Very much looking forward to this game.
Can't wait for this game...
Yay, this will keep those underage fragheads out of DS2 multiplayer.
dude...games gonna be bananas!
Why does it feel like the ad is aimed at 12 year old's?
because it is :(
EA and Visceral know this. That's what's ironic and kind of disturbing about this commercial. So much for ratings meaning anything other than having to protect their (publishers / devs) own asses. Great commercial either way.
@Alpha Pisses off your mother? Check Gruesome and Gory? Check Shooter? Check Everything a 12 year old wants.
Ironically, the mothers will watch this and won't buy. So effectively they are hyping it up for 12 year olds yet giving them a huge slap in the face? :P Assuming the mother actually watches this though haha!
I don't know if parents will react to this commecial by not buying the game but here EA clearly targets teenagers with that video, not the smartest thing to do if you want your industry to be considered seriously... Now, I must say that though I'm 27, my mom would indeed react like these women in front of the game. Can't wait to play it, btw
so they are trying to advertise the idea that the game is gruesome and gory? nothing about scariness? I guess they think that in order to get people to buy it they gotta make it seem like a halo space shooter, to draw in the casual crowd
The only thing missing was Kevin Butler...haha but I know I know...its multiplat ;/
they should still have him to advertise it with extraction
LMAO I had the same exact reaction as the first lady, when I was playing the demo at the part where Isac started seeing those necrmorph things that weren't really there in his little flashback.
Mmm, their reactions satisfy me. ON LAUNCH NIGHT, BABY.
Stupid ad. Rather than show things that make someone like the game, they're banking on the idea that someone will want the game simply because conservative women are disgusted by it?
Really? EA has decided to play the "This game is awesome, because your mom hates it" card?
haha. Totally true, I was talking to my mom today and a commercial for KZ3 came on and I mentioned I wanted it for the 3D and her response "why are all games so violent" women, they just don't get it.
Been seeing alot of PS3 ads lately (LBP2,DS2,DCUO,and the most surprising KZ3) Good job Sony finally stepping up your marketing.
What do you expect the reaction to be? When you present it in this fashion of just clips of dismemberments of aliens and the gory ways Isaac can die. The Moms have no idea that they are not seeing the full contents of the game. I think if you were to have them see a 15-20 clip walkthrough of the game. They will know that Isaac Clarke is fighting off aliens and hallucinating as well. And they are less likely to see the different ways the player can die. This is really not a realistic method of showing off a game. But maybe it will help clamp down on kids receiving or purchasing an M rated game? Or just cause the underaged gamer to be more sneaky behind their parents back? LOL
