Epic Games' Marketing Sucks As Always
I thought Epic was an unlucky one who always partnered with houses being retarded in marketing, Midway being a classic example. Turns out Epic itself also sucks at marketing. If you want to hype up a game, isn't it the first thing to do is to tell your potential customers what you are intending to sell, i.e. what kinda game it will be? Months after first heard of Paragon, and we still haven't been shown what kinda shooter it will be, except that it is a shooter. No gameplay video, no, nothing. Only four "trailers" showing four playable characters, showing only still images! No, there isn't even animation.
And this game is planned to be released early next year?! Now it has been almost the end of this year.
Epic often chooses stupid partners, because itself is stupid in marketing. It probably had used up all the luck it had in its whole life to partner with MS for Gears of War.

Maybe they decided that the current state of the game is so generically boring that to show any footage would kill interest, and to describe any mechanics would only cause issues if they decide that they need to redesign the game before release.
It is a possibility....
Honestly, even if the game is good, it could end up looking generically unappealing.

The Bulletstorm's marketing, in my opinion, is also one hella a mess. The game itself is interesting, but Epic really shouldn't be mocking the others' works. I mean, I don't think COD is in a way they perceive it to be, Modern Warfare's story isn't stupid at all in the first place.
Good games deserve aggressive marketing, especially for multiplayer games because popularity direct determine the enjoyment one can offer. However, You should aggressively promoting yourself, not to undermine your competitors.
MS had done an excellent work on Gears of War marketing (not for PC version though), why Epic seems hasn't learnt anything from it?
