Ive been watching your commerical on SYFY and it is showing people commanding from the bridge... This is way wrong.. a Complete mis rep of your product.. What are you thinking?? People are going to see this on tv and think cool buy your game and say WTF?? Dont do this to the game..!!!
No, what it shows is a cut scene. You'll notice that the "bridge" animation on those commercials is much smoother than the "game play" shown. No one watched that a thought it was Real Time.
So it's totally cool to misrepresent gameplay as long as it's obviously a cutscene? Not saying if it isn't always done, just asking if it's really something that companies should be doing.
(Note: I don't really mind the commercial. There was a preview video a long time ago with a similar segment, might have been the same one actually. It just annoys me how many people are fine with practices like these because "everyone else does it")
I saw a beer commercial. Soon as the guy opened the beer the music started and a pair of hot chicks popped in out of nowhere and started dancing and running their hands all over him.
So of course I went and purchased a six-pack of this beer. But when I opened a can no music started and no hot chicks showed up to dance with me. The beer company lied to me!!!111eleventyone!!!
The moral of the story? It's just a commercial kid.
Buying that beer or those jeans aren't going to suddenly make you popular with the ladies. And buying the Star Trek Online CD isn't going to transport you to the marvelous world of Gene Roddenberry's "Great Vision of the Future" (Amen).
No one lied to you about Star Trek Online. You're being as unrealistic as the guy standing there with the beer in his hand wondering why a pair of hot chicks didn't suddenly materialize to dance with him.
