Guerrilla tactics were mentioned three times in this article. But what actually happened was that they released a mainstream trailer to all the mainstream channels that showed no gameplay and was fairly irrelevant to the actual game. The loose tie was zombies.

Where they really differ from companies such as Activision, EA, Ubisoft, etc.. Is that those guys would never have got away with pulling "Genius marketing" like that and would have suffered a HUGE consumer backlash.

Deep Silver got lucky with a pocket full of great CGI.

I fully support Deep Silver, as et the end of the day, their titles have always provided me personally with a huge amiount of fun and enjoyment.

The same cannot be said of EA or Acti titles, as of late.

I'm with them, and their bold claim, 100 per cent.

Deep Silver are full of so much *****. Nothing says 'Better company than X' by showing a mutilated torso with tits barely being covered by patronage.

***** off, DS, you seem to forget just how many copies CoD sells and you call yourself a better company than them? Just because you released a buggy as *****, generic, mediocre crapfest that still managed to sell well because of cool looking adverts and an initial different type of trailer that doesn't make you better.

Don't count your chickens before they've hatched and just because you've bought something like Saints Row don't forget that it's borderline tastelessness is what made it good and funny. Something I think you will butcher by putting something like skull-*****ing minigames in, or something so creatively poor taste that Rapeplay games will soon adopt.

It think the difference is: EA and activision know that most people hate them. Deep Silver make cocky comments like this, as if they they are oblivious to the fact most people hate them. Ubisoft is actually a decent company, which whilst has flaws, does not deserve such a comparison.

The one redeeming factor deep silver have is that they are publishing Killer is Dead.

Why is everyone so quick to defend EA all of a sudden? I never thought I would see ANY gamer defend those guys. Time to find another site, you guys defend EA is just crazy. I'm out peace. Oh is SimCity up today? You SUCKAS.

Reading this reminded me of Rovio's comments from a while back. Make of that what you will.
