Cataclysm Cinematic Trailer

Yeah, both the Incursion and the Cataclysm trailer are narrated by ****ed off guys who want to kill everyone.

Thing is... WoW's is 0% ingame footage, not even close to what they're getting.
EVE is footage from a suped up version of the EVE client.

Also, i think more stuff is blowing up and flying around in the EVE trailer then the WoW one.
So it's more pretty and shiny!

Thoughts? Comments? Flaming?

I got shot up by Sanshas at gates in 0.0 on the test server.
They even warp disrupt.
I don't think they've changed it.

Cataclysm had an in-game footage trailer.

But Blizzard is more well known for making rendered cinematics.

And that's what people wanted... and that's what they got. It's not the best Blizzard cinematic, but it's a cinematic and it never needed to be anything else.

But hey...I'm sure this Incursion "expansion" with comparatively minimal content (but hey it's FREE right?) will look just as great as the Incursion trailer when you log on! The huge majestic fleet of Sansha is TOTALLY not going to be a soup of red crosshairs.

I have not tested Incursion in highsec but in lowsec the gate spawn was 1 BS, 2 crusiers and 3 interceptors. They were pretty painful so if half of that end up on a highsec gate I can forsee a lot of dead afk pilots.

I'm not surprised the Blizzard is, and has been, going for the rendered cinematic route. WoW graphics are dated and clunky. Making a new trailer showcasing in-game footage would be, ah, bad. Even post-rendering couldn't polish that up.

Well they got new dynamic water effects, which are fairly cool.

We heard you like content so we put some recycled content in your game so you can do what you've already done.

So who's leg do I have to hump to get this "suped' up" client?

No, seriously, I'll fly to Iceland and do whatever awful, shameful things they want. What can I say, I'm a ho for graphics.

Yes. The rendered cinematic is not a trailer, it's a cinematic. The link above is a trailer, analogous to the Incursion one. If you are comparing them, then compare these two.

And although WoW graphics are dated, they are still well regarded by a lot of people... why? Art style. A good art style >>> polygon count/shader effects. It's a fact of nature. EvE could learn something from that... because despite awesome graphics effects, so many ship design just plan SUCK.

That's not a trailer it's a news report from a reporter with a sore throat. :D

And good art style + Polygon counts/shaders effects > All.

I'm no graphics *****, but WoW is pretty hilarious for a 'current' game which is making so much money.

WoW's graphics are dated, but EvE is not without it's faults either. Properly played, EvE is nothing more than cross hairs and numbers against a murky cloudy background.

I think its worth pointing out that neither one has anything that looks like it could be a player character...

The latter half of the actual trailer is pretty much dedicated to showing the new Races that can be played. An easy mistake to make if you've never played.

Nice vid tbh, shame all the vid says is "a key character in the lore will get nerfed, beaten and farmed by 25 fat kids, much like every other char".

Yeah stuff gets nerfed over time so more people can access content. My guild was on brink of disbanding over M'uru and lots of guilds cascaded there. Prolly killing him pre-nerf was my brightest moment in wow career, doubt blizz have anything better in store.
