    Those of you who, like me, are dying to play the upcoming Dark Void game will love to know that there is a new, brief trailer out exploring the antagonists of the game, The Watchers. Seriously, who wouldn't want a futuristic, Rocketeer style game?

    Looks like it should be a pretty intense experience :)

    I'd love it if someone could explain to me what this trailer actually shows. Seems like a bunch of random scenes thrown together.

    It's a spotlight of The Watchers.

    But not having followed the Dark Void development cycle at all, this is my first real exposure to it. And, after watching the trailer, I was sort of scratching my head. If you hadn't said it highlighted the Watchers, (whatever they are), I wouldn't have even known that much.

    Trailers are still cinemagraphic work, so they should give some impression of a story, or something. This really looked like someone spliced together completely unrelated clips. In the first seconds, I thought it looked great, but after just thirty seconds, I was turned off by it.

    I won't hold that against the game itself, but this trailer is pretty bad. That's all I'm saying. Borderlands, in contrast, seems to know what machinema is all about.

    The saddest part is that I wouldn't be able to tell you which of the creatures shown are actually these Watchers. I'm going to go ahead and assume it's the robots, seems fitting, but for a trailer this was really poorly done.

    There's a new trailer showing off the combat, but it's as eclectic as this trailer. One second the player is tackling a robot, the next second the player is tossing a grenade toward a squad of enemies.

    The game still seems interesting though, so I might rent it, even if the trailers are awful thus far.
