Every Sunday, PC Gamer is going to bring the best in PC game video: including trailers, casts, clips, fan films and anything else we can find.
Shogun II's CGI trailer above is a work of intro art. Funny story - each of the three lead characters in this short were provided as options for PC Gamer cover art. I love the guy with the mirror fan, but he's not exactly going to sell the magazine at the news-stands. We eventually went with
an angry Samurai
. Probably for the best.
You can tell that all involved had a ball of a time making
Fallout Nuka Break - a Fallout 3 fan film
. Although I did spend most of the piece wondering whether short shorts are appropriate attire for a post apocalyptic landscape.
Battlefield 3 teaser trailer
inspired me to watch the original
Battlefield 1942 introduction
. Funny. I think every gamer will watch a rendered intro and immediately think “I can't wait until all games look this good”. Well, now they do. But we're already wondering when games will look as good as the intros we see today. The fidelity treadmill is a bitch.
