It's Noisy On Mars - New Mars: War Logs Trailer

An important lesson about background music can be learned from the most recent Mars: War Logs (yes, they're sticking with "War Logs") trailer. What should have been an overview of the promising-looking RPG turns into an ear-straining confusion as you try to pick out the voice from the strumming music and shouty game noise. Which is a bit silly of them, because it's looking rather interesting.

It's obviously even sillier since Spiders Studio's narrating CEO, Jehanne Rousseau, has such an epic-awesome accent, making it even harder to pick out what's being described. But fortunately you can feel that strange twinge of guilt and switch on the YouTube subtitles.

So that's looking rather promising, isn't it? It's from Spiders, who made Of Orcs And Men, and who I insist on believing are actually spiders.
