I reckon if you lot did an advert on gamespot it would make you more popular. I was thinkin one of dem huge adverts that are on the homepage of gamespot that take up the whole page. probably would cost loads but may possibly be worth it.It annoys me when i see dese games wich look sick but then like 10 copies sell lol.

11-29-2007, 10:26 AM
yeah, its a fact that this game is not so well known yet:(

That is somthing the publishers of this game will need to do, not Us not you. Yes indeed it would cost a lot of money.

Do you mean like before going on to ign sites? 'cos I just get annoyed with them as I want to load a page, not that one :eek:

IGN stinks. I say advertise maybe a month form release or later.

11-30-2007, 05:06 PM
I reckon it needs to get advertised a bit before releaseso people get more worked if you know what i mean. oh and why would i advertise it? and who is the publisher for this one?

rofl lol i know oprah

This game is going to be exactly like sins of a solar empire. Only a select group of individuals know about it before it is realized, engorge (is that how you spell it?) themselves in the wonderful beta and tell all their friends about it so the community slowly trickles with new life.

Every website or magazine or whatever you look at for games has this game on the front page with 9.0s or higher then all the peoples say "oooooo!" and click it.

That is IF you can make this game live up to the hype that has been embedded in my miniscule brain. (please oh please make it bug free and optimized :) )

You guys are listed on Gamespot as I'm sure you're aware, but the release date information reads "Q1 2009." Any way to update this information, or does it really matter?

think they're better off advertising in places where people actually care about strategy games... not gamespot where you might get charged based on how many idiot children who think halo wars invented the RTS genre happen to "hit" the site when your ad is up

03-24-2009, 03:12 AM
The information I was referring to wasn't on an advertisement, but on the game summary and preview information.

03-24-2009, 04:35 AM
many places it is 2008 for the release... i for one thought it was dead a few months ago until i finally checked out the forum

We have plans to bring many sites up-to-date who feature DoF. These plans are ready to execute once a few more things fall into place.

I should contact Pc Gamer to do a Review about this game. send them a letter should do the trick

04-11-2009, 05:23 PM
PC gamer is certainly more friendly to strategy games than gamespot every is. And independent stuff for that matter.

As long as their isn't another UAW distaster i'll be happy. Petroglyph had sega 'advertise' the game and as a major publisher you would have expected a lot of people to know about the game. No-one I spoke to had ever heard the game and then it sold hardly any copies which was a shame as the game itself was actually pretty good. Making sure fan sites know about the game is crucial and also modding groups as this game seems like a modders paradise.

Supreme Commander was always kind of underwhelming to me, from a modding perspective. I always get mods for games, I mean I'd mod a childrens adding game if I could. I had always heard SupCom was going to be the Jesus of modded games, descending upon us masses before leading us euphorically to the promised lands, but I've seen it as one of the little-most modded games I've ever played. I suppose it was due to similar reasoning, as that of UaW's failure.

This is what you need. :p

^ only if they want to go bankrupt...

04-13-2009, 11:09 AM
I don't know... it's modest in it's own over imposing way.

04-13-2009, 11:13 PM
Best way is to release videos, show off aspect of the games.

Get sites themselves to test it, even if its not gamespot you show it off and they'll put it in the news.

But yes gamespot would be costly as hell.

04-14-2009, 06:08 AM
Another way is, We the players advertise in other forums and sites where we can for free, just becouse We like the game and want it to have a long life thus we play it :)

Alex there's a reason why that pictures is called sims_3_marketing_mania_jd.jpg

04-14-2009, 05:35 PM
I'm not sure Reverie have enough for a marketing campaign, Sims is published by EA so they have plenty of money to spend. It's also a series thats proven well so the money invested in advertisement is safer as they will be pretty sure they will make it back in revenue. As long as people know the game exists and can see all of the awesome features it has to offer it should attract people. Not all games need a lot of money spent on marketing, the game should sell itself once people know its avaliable. Plus, a lot of films/games use heavy marketing to show off a few cool features and exciting cinematics to promote a game thats no-where near as good as its advertised.

Lol do you know how much its costs for a billboard advertisement?

in some parts of america 50 grand a year. expensive.
