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


11:45 AM on 01.30.2013



[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!

Music-making game Cosmic DJ has a corgi in it!

This past weekend, I found myself running through the crowds of the PAX East show floor, pushing people out of the way to get to the Indie Megabooth, where Cosmic DJ was waiting for me. As a musician and a fan of music games I would have sought it out anyway. But I found out via Twitter that the game features a corgi, so I took off running.more

I'm into Adventures in Game Development

I recently started watching Adventures in Game Development cold turkey. Falco Girigs, lead engine developer of the Elysian Shadows project, had just told me about his upcoming indie, next-gen 2D RPG for current computers and...more
