We don’t post every single video sent to us by the fine PR folks of the gaming industry. That’s just not our thang. However, we do try to highlight the ones that take promotion of a video game to a completely new level. In Trailer Check, you’ll find some of our favorite video game trailers that pop up around the web, and why we love them.
Halo 4 is turning out to be quite a big deal, in case you haven’t heard. We have a bunch of the “Forward Unto Dawn” videos up on previous Trailer Checks, but this is the first actual bit of advertising. Leave it to Microsoft to blow an entire budget on this mostly live-action epic. And hey, it’s pretty damn cool, too.
The final viral-ish promotional clip for Wreck-it Ralph is based on the third (and also final) original game in the movie. Hero’s Duty takes everything we know about Halo, throws it into a bucket with some Metroid and CoD, mixes it all together with a ladle, and bakes it at 350. Out pops this trailer, for what actually looks like a pretty cool stylized game. Not real, but still pretty cool.
The actual trailer for Iron Man 3 officially debuts on Tuesday. Until then, Marvel is teasing us with this montage showing us a lot of pain and a lot of the new Iron Man suit.
