Trailer Rage: Why are you emphasizing the second word?!

Also, 'bros'

[Trailer Rage is a recurring blog where we lose our sh*t over a videogame trailer or teaser for no good reason. Heads up: you'll get absolutely nothing in the way of 'news' out of this posting.]

Upcoming iOS title Video Game Quiz sounds pretty neat: write the name of the pictured game as fast as you can to earn points and earn coins. Coins can be used to hints on the games you can't guess. There are 400 games in 10 levels in this app that has just been released on the App Store.

That's fine. 

What's not fine is the trailer. The guy in the trailer and how he says game names.

Angry BIRDS? Guitar HERO? Mario KART? Why are we emphasizing the second word in the name?! That's worse than the old men that say ice CREAM. 

What kind of hero is it? A guitar hero. Not just any kart, but a Mario kart. See where I'm going with this?

And "bros" for Super Mario Bros. had a vein popping out of my forehead. RAGE!
