Love the almost-drop after the "me." WUB-WUB-WUB ALL THE VIDEO GAMESActually a pretty slick trailer, though: showcases the new features, while still getting a solid dose of EVE in there.

As a relative newbie, I've never seen Dominion until seconds ago. Retribution wasn't bad, but it doesn't compare to dominion.

Why is the rich guy ordering a pizza on his screen?

good Old CKX - Btw what's with the mittany NOT doing any more battle reports, that's why I started reading in the first damn place - Nulli and -A- last night was epic.

Because he can!

Am I the only one that thinks the dude talking sounds really silly?

Battlereports have to be submitted from a write up. -A- vs Nulli is not likely to have a CFC affiliated FC or HBC affiliated FC to write it up. If Nulli was to write it up im sure it would get posted.

whoa there mr. mittani,a. the widow and by association the scorpion are among the ugliest ships in eve. just be a real life scorpion is a cool looking, and suitably adpated, bug, doesn't make it a cool looking spaceship. unless you're 5.b. negative emotion won't get you banned in most games. preying on the weak, vengeance, hatred is what people experience every day. just play some cs.

As EVE trailers go it's OK. The best ones convey an air of slow looming menace, rather than the brisk dogfighting Retribution has. But it's better than some and as mittens says, it is at least on message.

If by "really silly" you mean "badly overdone", then no, you're not the only one.

Not only that, but does that say "PIZZA" at the top of his screen?

2/10 Didn't use The Mittani's avatar for the Alliance exec.

You know, in theory the trailer is great, if it weren't for well....so many inaccuracys ;) I mean, miners as the main moneymakers of an industrial alliance? 60m bounty, a Widow? tststs ;). It has a great feeling to it but I must aggree, Nothing beats the Dominion trailer by now.

Your kids understand game mechanics more than ~A~, and yet Makalu is still an FC.... How would your kids like to join Space Violence?

The big news today is, of course, that Retribution is out. Is the trailer any good?

We'll intentionally overlook the fact that the dread pirate looks like a pedophile and is flying a Widow - the Widow is unquestionably one of the best-looking ships in the game with that delicious black and red skin, and it's a shame that it exists as little more than a bridge-bitch in practice.

The standard by which all CCP trailers are now judged is, of course, the Dominion trailer, which was a goddamned tour de force that also came closest to 'actual Eve' gameplay. The Retribution trailer doesn't quite live up to it - the voice work is lacking without Mike Read's baritone - but it has a relentless focus on spaceships and explosions instead of, say, Barbies.

Perhaps most importantly, the entire motivation of the trailer is negative emotion: vengeance, hatred, greed, preying on the weak - everything that distinguishes Eve from all the other games where this kind of activity would get you banned in a heartbeat.

I like it.
