182w ago - Today Square Enix has released the final Final Fantasy XIII trailer (below) for Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's XBox 360 console.
This last trailer showcases some footage not seen before, and really sets the game up for next the 3 weeks until its launch in Japan on December 17, 2009.
For those curious, it's heading to Europe and North America on March 9, 2010.
To quote: "Square-Enix has just released the final Final Fantasy XIII trailer. Showcasing never before witnessed segments, this is the final trailer set to be released before the official release in Japan in just three short weeks.
With everything leading up to the launch, Square-Enix certainly went out with a bang with the trailer.
Some of the trailer features previous footage from older trailers, but a lot of the content is new. With, what appears to be an emotional story, Final Fantasy XIII should be one of the most emotional entries of the legendary saga."
184w ago - Today Marcus Johansson of the DICE Video Crew has shared a video and detailed the creation of the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PS3 trailer.
To quote: We got some really cool stuff to show you from the upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta map, Arica Harbor, but it isn't just a new trailer. It's actually something a little different.
Usually when we create movies there's a lot of intense action which is always good, but this time we wanted to try something we haven't done before.
The idea was to find action-filled moments and then capture them while the game was paused. This way the viewer can focus more on details and maybe imagine how he or she would play in that specific situation.
After showing a short test version to the team I got the green light to make the trailer. But how do you capture this kind of stuff? Well, what I like the most about Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is that we can show actual gameplay, so instead of staging scenes, I've been working with material recorded during our daily studio play tests.
After we're done with our daily tests, we can replay the rounds over and over until we find the scenes we're looking for. This way people can be sure that the game trailer they're looking at represents the game they will get to play...
185w ago - Dragon Age: Origins from BioWare is set for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows in North America on November 3, 2009.
Below is a new PS3 trailer for the title, which shows the Mage Circle Tower where the magicians do their work.
The trailer also reveals that this 'magic place' is not positive at all, since it is also some kind of prison.
To quote: Welcome to The Circle Tower, where mages practice and hone their art under constant observation from the Templars of the Chantry. Place of learning and prison in equal measure, it's a place you'll get to explore in BioWare's fantasy RPG.
"Glass Cannons" everywhere pay attention. In the world of Dragon Age: Origins beware the corruption that could take place in the mage training area of The Circle Tower.
