My opinions, jaded completely by my feelings, experiences, beliefs, and how I'm feeling at the time.

*SPOILERS* I will usually include a section at the end that may contain spoilers. If you don't want to know, don't read that part.

My opinion is not yours, nor should yours be mine. If you want to know for yourself, do for yourself. If you disagree, that's fine - you can make one of these for yourself for free.

Epic Goes Below-the-Belt on High-Brow Ads

Epic Games (Gears of War, Unreal, Shadow Complex) has really stepped their game up (!*&@ puns) in their ad campaign for the upcoming Bulletstorm. Follow the links for more:

Grayson Believes

Duty Calls

Now that you've seen for yourself - and if you're on of those people who reads on without looking at the links, shame-shame - let me establish some points of reference:

Halo 3: Believe

Call of Duty

This shameless mockery is also a great experiment in irony, since Epic themselves are know for the uber-pretentious "no sound effects with a sad song or some poetry in the background" Gears of War ads. Still, if this spot-on sense of satire carries over as well within the full game, it might be worth the money for comic value alone.
