In fairness to the Edwin, that's the first thing I thought when I saw the picture, looked very similar to Brothers in Arms.

When we get a full and frank apology from Randy for Aliens Colonial Marines, Duke Nukem Forever and the price of the Bulletstorm 'Remake' we can talk about companies using similar marketing art work techniques to convey the horror of war.

In the mean time Randy can stick his cutesie reddit friendly 'I'll just leave this here' tweets where the mice can't get at it.

They're not even all that similar, the focus is entirely different (BIA is on the dogtags, CoD on the soldier's eyes).

I'm not really sure why Gearbox need to apologise for Duke Nukem Forever. That game was always going to be a steaming pile of garbage considering the development history.

Randy is just so desperate to remain relevant. That's all it comes down to. After the massive tank that was Battleborn it's a good thing they have Borderlands to fall back on because other studios have gone completely under for less.

That was Firaxis and 2K I think.

Pitchford is just a total douchebag. I wouldn't care if anybody had actually ripped him off for real. The last straw of tolerance I had for the guy was when he did an expo interview with an acoustic guitar and sang a song to try and sickburn all the Twitter haters he was getting.

Regardless, that boxart is really bad if it's actually the final one. It looks ridiculous.

Yep firaxis and 2k dunno why I thought that.

I personally couldn't care less what's on the box. It could be a picture of a steaming turd as long as it doesn't reflect the quality of the game :)

A heart wrenching story, where you kill endless waves of automaton Nazi scum. Gripping stuff.

Seems OK to me. Activision making it. Looks lovely also. Seems like they are treading very safe with the story and setting.

I know its merely a trailer, i know the demographic they are going for, i know the target audience and yet with the myriad of nations and stories they could tell we get Americans in Normandy again.

Hopefully something else will be shown in the coming months as that has left me entirely cold. I have played that game before.

Back on track BUT please no hand holding. The objective markers really ruins immersions. Just go old skool and have objectives on a minimap
