A “dev” speaks on Star Wars: The Old Republic’s cinematic trailers. The trailers are beautiful, expensive creatures, especially the newest one Return. There is a point though in the accompanying satire. Those creatures are an extravagance especially when the actual gameplay is so lackluster. I do appreciate the entertainment the trailers provide in the compressed amount of time.
On the other hand, we have the Trackmania 2: Canyon trailer, which was done by alpha testers. Of course Nadeo (Trackmania developer) is about 15 times smaller than BioWare, and being French there is little fat to trim. PCGamer was so impressed by it that they gave it a whole dedicated paragraph in a press conference filled with giants like Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry 3, and another Tom Clancy game. More on this game later.
