I just wasted hours of my life waiting for that?
Great way to represent the company & game, with the 'comedian' brought in for the event rambling drunkenly, and the most anticlimactic reveal possible.
That was the worst teaser video I’ve ever seen on anything. How about a few seconds of gameplay or some screenshots?
What the Phuk?? They cant even show a damn picture of the game? Cant believe i have waited all day for this, jesus
waste of time, nothing to see. so that's the big drunk announcement? waiting all day for this..... lolllll
It would have been better to have just announced it on Facebook. This just pissed people off
Wow, no trailer, teaser, nothing......come on they could have just name the game without even showing that at that point. Been waiting weeks for that announcement.
Well nothing like a drunk Q humping Jack's leg......
Looking forward to seeing Iron Maiden pics!
Another Marketing Masterpiece by stern!
I'm so excited over what I already knew and what I still did not see!
Perhaps the code was not ready yet.....
This thread is/was like playing pinball -- a lot of excitement and anticipation followed by disappointment when the ball drains. . .
I posted this in the "best reveal" thread, because Stern HAS done a proper edited video reveal, that showed just enough, and made everyone go mental. THEY'VE DONE THIS SUCCESSFULLY BEFORE. I don't know why it keeps being a problem.
A part of me kinda wishes that he wasn't cut off. What was he slurring....errr...I mean saying about "the other pinball companies"?
At least it got me listening to Maiden tonight, forgot how much I love the older stuff. Great song and my personal pick for best translite.
Stern's marketing is terrible. It has been for years. Why they dont utilize their social media platforms more is beyond me. Ugh, to think marketing costs are rolled into the game cost too.
I just don’t understand Stern’s marketing. A shit teaser introduced by a drunk z-list celeb going on about how attractive he finds Jack Danger... it’s so woefully amateur.
Quoted from flynnibus:
they are using the 'legacy of the beast' theme.
Expect a lot of reuse of media from the game.. which means the art style too
That will certainly be a kick in the nuts if they're re-using assets from a crappy mobile game ... and from what I've seen, Legacy Of The Beast tour promotional material is hardly the pinnacle of the band's associated art.
Quoted from vireland:
Man, Iron Maiden really needs to spring for another art director for 3D. Their rendered videos like the one on that landing page look like student projects. Embarrassing.
It's a mobile game. As for the music videos ... it's kind of derivative of the metal genre - they pioneered or used the 3D rendered videos very early .. and have stuck with it, including the 'primitive' style. Fans seem to like it.
