I hope there wasn't some hilarious turn at the end that made that whole thing worth watching, because I stopped watching long before that point.

Guys, I know sex sells, but I don't know what a bunch of girls being payed to role-play has to do with your game. At all. I am not getting this game solely because of this trailer. Way to insult the intelligence of your entire demographic.

This game is now on my "don't touch with a 20 foot pole" list.

It's pathetic. Just pathetic. Gamers aren't all boner-toting whoremongers who are only interested in tits and ass. Hell, even all guys aren't.

This makes me sick. It isn't even pulling off the self-awareness well enough. Duke Nukem did it better, and I had my fill of that game with the demo.

Psh, this trailer isn't any different to the Catherine bullshit I've been seeing lately. They both demean women, just in different ways. Just because this is more obvious about it suddenly folks are offended.

Seeing as you are of the fairer sex, you overestimate the intelligence of their key demographic, id est, us, men.

"Boner-toting", LMAO. It's like a bunch of gun fanatics, except they're toting their boners.
For some reason I can't stop laughing at that term.

Edit: Perhaps making posts at I-Just-Woke-Up in the morning is not a good idea. I totally misread that as 'under'.
Anyway, you do have to keep in mind that there is a large and growing population of female gamers. And with this trailer, not only has Team Hollywood alienated the the more intelligent male gamer market, they've also alienated every gamer girl ever.

It's not your fault, unless you specifically put pen to the paper to have that made.

Then I'm going to punch you in the junk. Hard.

I am in disbelief that this was actually made and posted. Starship Troopers (movie) has EXACTLY this but as a spoof! If there had been overwrought narration and a lame joke about a bug hunt from the Aliens marine clone, this would have been an OK trailer.

What a waste of effort from that marketing team (the sexist bastards) for a promising game

I feel insulted that as a man I'm apparently influenced by boobs.
Besides, I don't normally masterbate when gaming.
And if the ladies of the army were dressed and behaved like they do in the trailer, well, I would be pissed off as a woman.

Keep the boobs to porn please.

Game seems fine but I feel like they're getting out of the game actually being bad by going LOL BOOBIES.

I was embarrassed...
I pre-ordered this game and enjoy it every day without the need for boobies. This is both pandering to the average joe and insulting to me, the consumer.

This will probably hurt sales more than increase them.

you want gameplay footage? just look it up on youtube, game's already out, after all, and it's a damn fun game too. don't let this trailer fool you into thinking its cheap cash-in crap because it's not.

Far be it for me to not enjoy opportunities to see sexy women in provocative poses, but what the hell does this have to do with the actual game? If you're going to pander to my basest instincts, best to tie it in with the product a bit more solidly than this.

See I read this as "babies" and was hoping for some delightful little indie game in which aliens fight babies. I stopped a few seconds in realising exactly what this trailer was about.

Ooooh mmmmyyyy God! scantily clad women! I....MUST....BUY...THIS...GAAAAMMMEEEE!

I cant defend against boobies of that magnitude! *ahem*

Who in the advertising sector REALLY thought this would work? Hmmm? it'd be funny if it wasn't so pathetic.

On a slight side note, For a model, wasn't the Sara lass kinda pudgey? (yes I almost saw the end of the video, I'm still male)

WTF was that between 0:12 and 1:36? That had absolutely nothing to do with the game! Thanks devs, now I know your product is shovelware if you have to resort to this pandering. Saved me 60 bucks for something better.

I thought this would have something to do with the EDF troops from Duke Nukem Forever, which is already a stupid idea. Turns out this us something much, much worse: it's like Evony.
For those that didn't use the internet during the course of 2009, Evony was a boring MMO that thought that advertising with scantily clad women that have no relevance to the game itself would get people to play it. The game is infamous for so, and I'm surprised another company was dumb enough to think it would work.
Captcha was "Take Potluck"

You took the words right out of my mouth.

I wasn't planning on buying this game anyway.

And really, do we really need more of this? I mean, between this, Duke Nukem, and the Dead Space 2 commercials, we're on our way to having games freaking outlawed. Why can't you just make regular commercials, that actually have something to do with the product...

What in any way does EDF have to do with the PS3? This one is multi-platform and EDF: 2017 was a 360 exclusive.

Try to be a fanboy just slightly less please.

OT: Eh, boring video. Fun game.

Yeah, fuck you too, VC Software and D3 Publisher. Feel free to horse around with your advertising sluts, contract some horrible venereal diseases and die from them.

God damn. This is the kind of insult that gets me even more riled up than PETA or the WBC.

...Still waiting on the punch-line... maybe if more women gamed, they couldn't JUST pander to one side... or maybe the gaming industry would simply collapse since it's STARTING to look like they don't KNOW how to do anything ELSE.

Idea for the follow-up video: An army of female gamers storming the studio and crushing the developer's pelvis' with those tall-ass heels they seem obsessed with putting them in and then animating wrong anyways because they think we're all too horny to NOTICE. Enlisting now.

I'm completely unclear on this ad's message. Were the women supposed to represent characters from the game? Maybe trying to point out that they are especially badass by their willingness to risk their vital organs by fighting intergalactic spiders with bare midriffs? And what's with the one at the end who is clearly going off to battle armed with nothing but a riding crop? I want to see THAT boss fight.

Or maybe they are just gearing up for a long co-op session of insert-game-title-here, followed by pedicures and pillow fights? And if so, why are they narrating that evening's plan to the photographer? Is this some unlockable first-person mission that will be available in DLC? Enquiring minds want to know.

Uh ok...how do the girls relate to the actual game? Really if the best way they can think of to advertise this it to pay some chicks to dress and pose provocatively it makes it seem like the game it just isn?t interesting so they have to fall back on sex appeal.

I get the sense that these advertisers really want to be advertising for something like Senran Kagura as opposed to what they're supposed to be advertising. Of course, that begs the question that if the advertisers don't care for their game, why should I?

I...uh...erm...hoo...what?

As a female gamer...as a woman...as a human being...I don't know if I have words for how offensive that was...

Though a multitude of comments in this thread are raising my faith in the male gender. Slightly. Faith in the gaming industry as a whole: reduced.

I don't even...sigh

Honestly, women like you - hell, even the men in this thread who are pathetically crying over boobs in their games - make me sicker than this video, but I won't go into further detail since I rather not get banned.

As if anyone gives a flying horse leg about your faith in the male gender...

Whatever. If you guys want to whine about women being objectified in the gaming community, this is the wrong place to do it, and if you find this trailer lacking in gameplay footage, I suggest looking this title up on Youtube.

It's a dishonest marketing campaign that's premised on the idea that if you show the male gamer demographic boobs, they'll be a huge amount more likely to buy the game regardless of what the game is actually like. If anything, it's far more sexist against men than women as it's pretty much a direct insult against mens' intelligence.

And you're the type of woman I appreciate. Seldom do you (as in I) find a girl who can see something sexist that's not aimed at women.
