I hope they're not changing the font to something so generic/boring looking as that. :shock:
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

18.59 MB - will keep it up for the usual. Please never link directly to this file, instead linking to this post in the thread. I put these HDs up specially for members of the forum (i never post them to the news area) so please respect that. :)




One thing that excited me, but then disappointed me about the trailer was the Pilot Foot pedals and gear shift in there. That said to me they left some of that customization of the interior in there which we haven't seen in any commercials yet. However if you go frame by frame, Mike is wearing a leather jackets as he shifts gears and you can see the plastic tabs from the old dash. When they cut to him turning, he's not wearing a jacket. So that says to me this is just recycled footage in here, alas.

But I'm being really picky - it's otherwise kickass!


can you reup video? the link doesn't work anymore. :(

I don't think they're changing the font. I was watching America's Got Talent and noticed that the ticker at the bottom of the screen had all the shows in that font. So I think it's just NBC's generic promotional font
