After having covered many game release news, reviews, some announcements and also movie trailers in addition to reviews, it’s time to add the YouTube treatment to games as well, starting with CD Projekt RED‘s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt epic trailer.
I’ve always liked watching trailers of games more than movies. Maybe because they don’t tell as much about the actual story, not having too many spoilers, because they’re a longer and more interactive experience. Or it’s because the expectations for a game are higher for me, although I’ve been very careful with hyping a specific game.
In case of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it has already shown up in a couple of articles, and I still haven’t been able to play it. There are raving reviews and a generally positive reception of the game (and its first paid DLC). It’s right that the CD Projekt RED PR machine is constantly spurning out all sorts of material, especially videos. But taking into account that they’ve been working very hard on this one game for so many years, it’s fitting to celebrate the year it finally released with this pretty epic trailer that might not have as much bloodshed in it as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt universe trailer, but there are enough cringeworthy moments and cool setpieces. Considering that there isn’t any voice acting or narrator which tells you what great features it has, the word “epic” certainly fits the music. Hopefully I’ll get a next gen console very soon, as my current PC system can’t handle it… so you’ll finally get a review for this title (probably when the second DLC in 2016 is out).
BTW, the coverage of this epic trailer to celebrate the game is a great opportunity to celebrate my 1000th view this month, a milestone I reached yesterday (even if it happened before). So thanks to all the wonderful people reading my blog on a regular basis!
