Dragon Age Origins Is, Apparently, The 'New Shit'

BioWare's official Dragon Age twitter announced this new trailer - "Violence" - which sets all sorts of slashing and steeling and sexing to the sonorous crooning of Marilyn Manson's "This is the New Shit."

Doesn't look like much, if any gameplay in the trailer - and the dialogue doesn't seem matched in the closeups. BioWare's tweet also pointed to the vid hosted on GameDibs youtube account. Given all that, plus the usage of Marilyn Manson (was he paid?), if BioWare itself didn't tout it, I'd almost be suspicious this was fan-made. Very well made, sure. But curious.

    I suppose the philosophy here is that the people who'd like an appropriate trailer will buy the game anyway so they might as well try to reel in some of the unsuspecting Gears of War players.

      so very true.

      i still deduct credibility points from bioware marketing division and/or EA.

        I prefer this to "Epic Fantasy Organ Suite 112", fantasy games, meet post 2000, post 2000, meet fantasy games.

        Good shit, not like the old shit.

    While I agree its inappropriate to accompany the trailer with a MM song, I still loved the trailer.

    I already knew the game was going to be more 'mature' and include blood, but some of those scenes were downright awesome. I was also afraid of the voice acting being a little weak from the early video's (in the charge where he screams 'for fereldan') but that speech in the throne room was sick!

    Really can't wait for this game, and the cutscenes and mature content should make for some excellent story telling (including custom made modules)
