Off the top of my head (some are E3 trailers)... Dragon Empires, Empire Earth, Spy Hunter 2, Blood Rayne, Everquest 2, and going way back, Quake 2 (which I did a full sequence on)

Blur does a lot of stuff, including ride films and general visual effects, but they fill in the schedule with game cinematics. They were recently nominated for an Academy Award for an animated short which is cool.

I left there a few years ago to start a small software company which specializes in rendering software (which was used for the DoW cinematic) but still have a good relationship with the Blur peeps.

Wow, that is cool. I used to watch the RTCW opening a number of times. I thought it was quite well done, same with Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War opening. What other bits have they done before?

That's cool. You guys probably did a good job.

I will definitely get this when the price goes down on the normal edition later on.

The opening cinematic was created by Blur Studio, an LA based animation company where I worked for several years. You've probably seen their work many times before, including the opening for Return to Castle Wolfenstein, which has the same blood splats on the 'camera' lens as DoW.

And yeah, really fun game.

I picked this up out of impulse about a week ago. It really is an excellent game. Grabbed it for about $30 CDN. I would have gladly payed the $60 for it back last september when it was released, had I not ignored my enjoyment of the demo, for whatever reason.

$30 CDN is like roughly $20 american, so that's budget price man, go buy it.

This is a top-notch RTS. If you liked Warcraft 3, you gotta get this game.

I might buy it if it's budget priced. Otherwise, I'm poor.

I'll buy it when it's bundled with the expansion - which this doesn't appear to be.

One awesome game! And you're right Elf, the opening cinematic WAS fantastic, but I don't think it was created by Relic...

Finally got around to playing the Single player demo and had alot of fun, and it seems someone has finally 'caught up' to Blizzard in the realm of Cinematics. Kinda glad I waited but really don't want to wait till September to get the GOTY version

Ack turns out this is just extra stuff, not including the Addon. Guess I won't have to wait
