Conflict: Denied Ops But Allowed Boobies

By John Walker on February 15th, 2008 at 9:18 am.

As the reviews for Conflict: Denied Ops start to appear, things aren’t looking good for the shooter. A Metascore of 52 (on 360) doesn’t bode well, but it’s not nearly as forboding as the latest trailer (of so, so many) appears.

It’s a stag-do – phwoar! But there’s too many men in the way, and we can’t see the stripper – noes! Fortunately, through co-op, we can force our way to the front. Like, er, when you shoot people in the desert. Part of me clings to the idea that this might be a fake, and not from the promotional department of Eidos (it doesn’t appear on their own press site, but then nor do many of the other legit trailers). Be warned, the following clip contains nudity, and may well not be workplace-friendly.

Um, thanks Gametrailers?

Boy oh boy, makes you proud to be a gamer, doesn’t it?

    *Sigh*
    If it is legit, I hope whoever is responsible fucks off and goes to work in the porn industry where they belong. I’m insulted to even be in the same industry.
    Maybe I should attach a group sex video to the front of Democracy 2?

  2. matt says:

    Geez.. i guess i’ll settle for boobies then, since Conflict: Denied Ops looks a little crappy…

  3. drunkymonkey says:

    Oh, excellent. It’s great to see a series that used to be a respectable, tactical, and enjoyable shooter that took itself seriously (despite the endless waves of enemies, mind you) degenerate into a total embarrassment both in game, and out.

    It’s like they’ve been headbutting the series in the nadgers since Vietnam.

    On the one hand, we want to mature as an art form by engaging the human condition, on the other hand, the human condition is that we’re fucked up and stupid.

    Le sigh. :P

  5. Lh'owon says:

    I liked it.

    *sob*

  6. seregrail7 says:

    I liked it, too. It seemed more like a comedy sketch with a games named branded on the end of it, though. Doesn’t make me want the game after seeing the really bad game play footage.

  7. Nick says:

    The breasts weren’t needed to get the point across, apart from that it was quite funny..

  8. Meat Circus says:

    Wot no “Denied ops, allowed boobies”?

    RELENTLESS CO-OP TACTICS.

    Ooooo, when will the co-op tactics relent?! I can’t take no more! :’(

  11. Meat Circus says:

    The Great God of AdWords has decided that this site is frequented by those most likely to be the victim of sexual assault, as well as those most likely to commit it.

    Well, at least is shows that RPS reaches a broad audience.

  12. po says:

    Saw this game advertised in a store window.

    Conflict: Denied Ops: £9.99

    Think I might wait for the price to drop XD

  13. Phil says:

    I like boobies!

    meh @ the game though.

  14. Chemix says:

    It’s a good commercial and those that don’t like boobies can kiss my ass, I mean, really, after this whole ordeal of getting through the crowd, just getting there to see her start to reveal and then jump to shitty gameplay footage kinda makes it feel even cheaper. As long as it’s done well, I don’t have a problem with sex sells, not that I’d buy the product in question, but I can stand to watch the add.

  15. James says:

    ‘Phwoar’ remains my favourite sound ever. Thanks for informing me of the correct spelling, though.

    See kids? Fun *and* education! Thanks, RPS!

  16. cullnean says:

    the add isnt aimed at serious gamers, its to pull in(and off?)
    the crazed halo fan boys

  17. cliffski says:

    I love boobies, they are amongst my favourite things. They shouldn’t be sued to sell crap games though.

  18. Nallen says:

    Shame on you, RPS.

    But nice bewbs.

  19. The_B says:

    I think the funniest thing in that trailer is the voice.

    “Errm we couldn’t quite afford deep voiced action guy, but here’s the next best thing! And by next best we mean bless him, he’s trying…”

  20. Yhancik says:

    My… it’s even worse than the Juiced ad

  21. Pete says:

    Seems exactly the bloody thing I’d expect from the Eidos marketing department. Given that it’s almost guaranteed they’re all non-gamer marketing types, they’ll avoid directly displaying the actual game and try to rope the lads in instead because that’s their “viral marketing target market segment”.

    Fucking typical. I hate it when games marketing is almost ashamed to actually be a game so instead tries to practically “trick” people with tits, booze, or some other “oh, they’ll be more familiar with this real-life concept” bait and switch bullshit, then showing 5 seconds of gameplay at the end.

  22. Larington says:

    This is viral marketting at work.
    Bad marketting types! – No candy for you!

  23. Max says:

    It makes the FarCry trailer look awesome.

  24. Meat Circus says:

    I’m suspicious that somebody denied ops would be able to obtain those boobies.

    Surely not natural?

  25. Essell says:

    Good fucking loooooooooord. Here’s hoping the people who thought that ad was a good idea have gone off and killed themselves or something.

  26. Jonathan says:

    I’ve always disliked viral adds, whenever I’m forwarded one I feel like my friends have been brain washed by the company. But I’m too much of a sap to tell them and I end forwarding to a friend of theirs so that they’ll think I like it. Complex? I gots ‘em.

    Am I the only one thinking she should get her money back? Her surgeon has clearly never seen a real boob. I mean they’re pointing in different directions and dont move.

    This was made to attract men, the main demographic, so for the Sims 3 I’m expecting naked firemen on horses talking about shoes handbags and tampons.

  27. dhex says:

    wealthy, naked firemen, you mean.

    with chocolate!

  28. Jonathan says:

    Dhex; you and I must never run an advertising company. I fear how powerful we would become.

  29. dhex says:

    i woulda pitched the above “advertisement” as ending with instead of seeing her boobs she instead pulls out like a bunch of fucking guns and totally lays waste.

    the camera drops to the ground and as the blood flows over the lens you see a flash in huge block letters:

    TITS
    GUNS
    DEATH

    and then a website. no game images because the game looks like something a coprophage would pass over.

    also who calls that shit “stag parties” anymore?

  30. Stromko says:

    Dhex: That would’ve ruled.

    video: Those breasts are incredibly fake and disgusting, whoever did them should have their license removed. They’re literally bigger than a man’s skull, and stiffer, firmer too! I seriously hope they’re CGI or makeup and that poor woman doesn’t have to go through life with those worthless balloons of tortured skin.

    If I wanted to see warped and freakishly bulbous women walking around like arcane fertility idols, I’d just log into SecondLife. Bit less ‘uncanny valley’ effect. Also, more booty.

  31. undead dolphin hacker says:

    i think it was pretty funny.

    only thing i would change is the last part. instead of seeing her boobs, they need to get up there and see that the stripper has a penis. i think this would better symbolize the conflict: denied ops experience.

  32. josh g. says:

    dhex, I want to see your version.

  33. Kieron Gillen says:

    Dhex: The British.

    KG

  34. That Guy says:

    Nice tits.
