A new trailer for Petrogylph Games' End of Nations has been released this morning, which features gameplay footage from a battle over an Austrailian uranium mine, accompanied by a pair of commentators performing in the style of a sports broadcast.
As for what's actually going on, well, it's all going pretty well over my head. I'm not really up on the mechanics or units, though the strategies shown seem fairly standard for the genre. That said, I will say that it was kind of refreshing to hear a video with this sort of commentary sound so professional. It seems the general tactic is to go over-the-top, either with the excitement level of the actors or the content itself, but these guys play it just straight enough to be playful without venturing into absurdity. Well played.
