What Do You Think Of This New Game Trailer?

Last night, the publisher Interceptor Entertainment announced a video game called Bombshell. They put up a website and teaser trailer, which you can watch above.

Interceptor Entertainment is the video game publisher that was trying to make a new Duke Nukem game (with original Duke Nukem creator 3D Realms) before getting entangled in lawsuits with Gearbox Software. This is their newest game. It's out in 2015 for PC and PlayStation 4.

So, I'm curious... what do you think of this trailer? Post all thoughts below.


    Hmm.. it looks a bit lame. And the character strikes me of a bit of a rip off of Yelena Fedorova from Deus Ex. http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110115211420/deusex/en/images/4/42/Fedorova.png

    Pretty pointless trailer.. Not much of a teaser and in fact not much of a trailer.

    Looks like something designed in the 90s. Not my bag.

    Only aiming for PC and current gen? You've got my unreserved attention...

    Not good
    Side note- any one notice good old Daniel Jackson whiskey

    The best part of the entire thing was the bizarre outro with the lady talking about how rockets to the face can be a pain in the neck.

    My thoughts: 1) Character model looks last gen and not great overall.

    2)The Terminator is strong in this one. There was a niggling suspicion when I saw her cyborg arm. From the moment the bike appears, it's all downhill on that front. We have the bike, she holsters the gun in the exact same part of the bike from T2. She even has 'No Fate' written on her cyborg arm, a detail they take GREAT pains to make known to the viewer. Seems they are trying to ride the coattails of Sarah Conner and Arnie himself here. A huge mistake IMO.

    New Terminator tie-in with female Terminator? Anyone else notice the "No Fate" written on the bionic hand?

      I don't think so. The parallels are a little too gimmicky to be a direct tie-in. I think they just 'had this great idea' to make their protagonist a cross between a T800 and Sarah Conner.

    Just a feeling that the game will be filled with Duke Nukem references and gameplay. If you watch the trailer it mentions "Kickass BubbleGum sales plummet as only customer has "Too much ass to kick"". I hope this doesn't turn out to be female Duke Nukem.

    That looks bad. Shouldnt she need a counter weight for all that metal?

      This brings up all the problems in associated films. iRobot, anyone? Will Smith blocks an android with his super strength arm, and they ignore the fact that the rest of his body would have been ripped apart by the stress of the hit.

    Good : New IP. Female protagonist.

    Bad : combat bikini outfit. looks a tad dated.

    Verdict : I hope this is gonna be better than I give it credit for, coz any company who makes a new IP deserves good things just for making the effort.

    Bombshell? Wasn't that the name of female equal of Duke that was present in early concepts of Duke Nukem Forever?

    Well, I dunno. She looks like a bit of a Bombshell.

    Glorified tech demo for tech that isn't that great that's obviously designed by 13 year old terminator fanboys with taste stuck in the mid 90s.


    I'm in the trailer business, and that was only effective in making me say; 'Meh'.

    Yeah, I think that armoured bikini top is a bit silly. Why sexy her up when the right side of her body is ripped skin and metal?

    You can make her look cool, feminine and armoured without the skin...


    Is this still seriously how game designers are viewing "edgy" women?

    This feels like Duke Nukem, and that feels old. But my Nostalgia did kick in where I saw a line in the new broardcast ticker.

    Kick-ass bubblegum sales plummet as only customer has "too much ass to kick"

    Why is there a story about a video posted by a local tafe 3D animation class?

    Looks like utter shite.
    Graphics are dated, character movement is weird, character is a rip off of Yelena from Deus Ex: HR, motorbike with the fire in the background is like something out of Ride To Hell and for fucks sake, give her some clothes.
    Was this designed by a 13-year-old boy?

    “Lawsuits take time, and are often a long, drawn-out process,” they say on the game’s website. “Meanwhile, we wanted to be productive—our creative team couldn’t wait around for the issue to be resolved. Ultimately, we saw it as the opportunity to create our own intellectual property, and Bombshell was born.”

    They outright admitted that Duke Nukem is not their IP by saying they created their own IP. So dumb... Duke Nukem is not an IP worth fighting for anymore.

    I thought it felt like one of the early Duke Nukem Forever teasers. Specifically, this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWuteFLUPSY Also, I recall Bombshell being a character that was supposed to be in DNF?

    Edit: Spelling

    This is the video game equivalent of "Bound 2."

    Seriously? Is the industry reverting back to games like that?

    The 2010 cinematic trailer for Deus Ex Human Revolution has the protagonist drinking a Jack-esque liquor from a glass, and fracturing it with his cybernetic hand. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kq5KWLqUewc ) I'm not sure if that was already pinched from some pop culture I've missed - but regardless, this isn't homage, it's a travesty.
