Pacific Rim gets a bad trailer reminiscent of good things


6:30 PM on 07.09.2013



I'm excited for Guillermo del Toro Presents: Idris Elba in Neon Genesis Evangelion Power Rangers, or Pacific Rim, which is dropping this Friday. Little did I know, Pacific Rim: The Video Game is dropping simultaneously on Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft points. 

Unfortunately, this trailer does not inspire confidence. "Take charge in eradicating the invading Kaiju," the trailer says, before proceeding to show no invading Kaiju. Pacific Rim is a movie about giant robots fighting giant sea monsters and its videogame tie in just released a trailer showing only giant robots, mostly just falling over. Hopefully they aren't betting on getting those Kaiju character models done three days before release.

Still, this doesn't have to be all bad. In honor of Pacific Rim's release, instead of buying what appears to be licensed junk, let's dust off last generation's consoles and either play some War of the Monsters or Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee. You can even snag the former on PSN.
