This Backbreaker ad is coming to a TV near you


10:00 PM on 04.23.2010



I haven't played NaturalMotion's Backbreaker since E3 2009, and while I liked what I saw, I feel like the game is going to need a major marketing campaign if it wants to avoid getting lost in the shuffle of big-name releases this spring. To that end, the game is getting a commercial, and you can check out the 30-second spot above.

I don't know if the ad does enough to distinguish Backbreaker from the football videogame that most viewers will be familiar with -- namely, Madden. I mean, it looks good, but it doesn't do a good job of highlighting the tech that makes this game special: the developer's Euphoria engine. Then again, I suppose that's what the developer diaries are for.

What do you guys think of the commercial? Do you feel like it would convince Madden fans to give Backbreaker a chance when it launches for PS3 and 360 on June 1st?

Durantula and giant floating heads take over this NBA 2K15 video

It's pretty neat that Kevin Durant was able to make this dunk look as effortless as he did. But, nobody's talking about poor Andre Iguodala, the Golden State guard that just got posterized. Actually, it's worse because it's ...more
