    I really don’t like the “trailer”. What does it show about the game? Nothing. Nothing apart from the last boss, which I would have preferred them not to unexpectedly reveal. I also found it very reminiscent of the AC3 “Rise” trailer, and a trailer for one game should not make me think of a different one!

    If I’m telling people about GW2, I’ll be linking them to the 2011 trailer.
